    Same thing here, I started fresh and everything went good. Only problem that I ran into is that I can not connect to the internet wireless or directly. I have tried to use ipconfig /renew & release to no avail it will not do anything. From there I popped into the device manager, were there are some problems. under the other devices I can see ethernet controller, network controller, and some others 8 in total with the (!) in front. I think this is the problem but don't know where to go from there. One last bit of info that my be helpful but causes a new problem is that there is a FAT32 partition that I left on the hard drive thinking that it was drivers and stuff to bring it back to "like new". The partition is 2.93 GB, rendering it useless to me as windows will not access it. Thank you in advance for any assistance in this problem.

I format my computer and put Windows Vista Black Edition on it , and it's don't show the Wireless Card ? my Computer is Acer Aspire 5715Z notebook/

You can obtain driver software from Acer. The various drivers are available at the following URL:

Look for WLAN. There are three types - Intel, Broadcom, and Atheros. Which one you need depends on what brand of wireless card is installed in your laptop. You could either take a look at the card in your machine, or try each driver and see which one works.

I hope this is of some use.

Hi there. I have an Acer Aspire 5600AWLMi, I want to format my laptop and start everything from scratch; reinstalling XP and all the drivers in it. Two problems: 1.Don't have the Acer Recovery...

You need to replace the DVD reader or use an external one, and obtain a windows install CD. Enter your model number on the acer website to get all of the required drivers. Obtain the drivers and put them on a CD before reformatting as you will not have the wifi drive to go get the drivers if you try and get the drivers after you format.

My problem is this i had installed windows xp

That won't fix your problem. You need to find the latest drivers for your wireless adapter.

What kind of computer do you have? Model numbers are great.

Lim, sorry to hear about the virus attack. Hope you can get a better protection next time. I will recommend Avast Antivirus instead of AVG.

Then again, this will be the link to help with the driver download.

Acer 4520 Booting Problem.

i would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of your network adapter, or it would be best if you install the latest drivers for it. no need to format the HD.
if you feel that formating is needed, it would also work but that takes a lot of work.

hope this helps. :)
