You do need the driver - make sure it's for the right operating system. My original Acerpower was Windows XP, upgraded to Vista. Acer supplied the CD with updated drivers for Vista.

In order to get sound, you will just need to sound driver. The other drivers are for other things.

Pop open the case, and see what brand of motherboard you have. If it's MSI, you're in luck. Just do a google search for MSI live update, and it will download a utility, scan the PC, and then suggest the driver download.

If it's not an MSI board, just go to the manufacturers website, and do a search for audio drivers. It may want the model number of hte board which you can see, briefly when you switch on the PC. Its usually on the very first screen, will be white writing, on black background.

No sound device and yellow question mark by multimedia audio controller


Kristilyn,
You will need to download and reinstall the sound drivers into the system or use the Dell Drivers disk that was shipped with your computer to install. You can download the driver from the link below.

My other computer says i am missing my Ethernet


Hi there, the easiest way to do this, if you are using XP, stick the XP disk in, boot from disk, follow the options untill you get to repair windows, simply do this and it will install all the drivers again.
if not, you can go to the IBM webstie www.ibm.com then go to drivers and software, type in the drivers you are missing, then download them, make you sure you download the correct model tho, that should work.

Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.
