Driver Issue - "Acer Aspire X3810 2.5 Ghz 4MB DDR3" 64 Bit Situation: The PC came with Vista, however, my goal was to run Win 2003 server 32 Bit. I erased the entire hard drive with Drive Purge and attempted to boot 2003 Server and the Blue Screen of Death pops up when the OS attempts to start. It cannot find the SCSI and is unable to find storage device, in my case Sata. In the past, correct or incorrect, i've used the same procedure to install a fresh OS with no issues. Researching for a solution has created an endless maze of possibilites. Would you be kind enough to help me troubleshot this when you have a moment. Thank you for your time!

    The Blue Screen message is constant. I looked through Bios which I believe is the A.03, which appears to be the latest. Sata mode enabled, IDE enabled, and ACHI choosen. Re last question: After initial loading of OS, it attempts to load then the blue screen displays and stay constant. I was able however to load Win 7 Ultimate with no issue. My theory is the server 03 OS simply lacks the capability to detect the configuration of the newer equiptment. Just a guess though. ...

Hello.

I would start by checking the computers Bios - hard drive options. When you power on the computer you get a message that stays on there for just a second or two. Press to enter setup. Could be F1, F2, Del, or similar. Once you get in bios, go over all the pages, look for SATA settings, SATA Mode, or similar to this. It would be best to have it on "Native Ide" or "Ide" other options are most likely achi, raid and possibly sata.


Try the ide and achi options if this was set on SATA before. - You will have to run the windows setup again and see if it helps.


Also did I understand correctly that you can complete the windows setup, but when it boots up after the setup has completed you get a blue screen?

    Achi Choosen, Change that to IDE and reinstall o3 server. Hopefully it will not complain about SATA now since its "translated" to IDE.

I have a problem in downloading sound driver for window7


There are no officially supported Windows 7 drivers for the Acer Aspire 5570 notebook. However, the Vista drivers should work just fine.

If you don't know whether you have 64 bit or 32 bit Windows 7, then please follow these steps.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "MSINFO32" into the dialog box and press enter.
3. Look for item "System Type" and note whether the value is x64 or x86. (x86 means you have a 32 bit OS)

Regardless of whether you have 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 7 follow these instructions:
1. Go ahead and download 32 bit Windows Vista drivers by following the link: Acer Aspire 5570 Audio Drivers

2. Save file to the Desktop for easy access.

3. Extract ZIP file to Desktop.

4. Open the extracted folder.
5. Right click on the file "Setup" and select "Properties".
6. Select the Compatibility tab and check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)". Click OK.

7. Double click the "Setup" file to run the installer. If the installer completes, then restart the computer and play a music file to see if you have sound.

If the installer fails, then follow the next set of directions:
1. Press Win+R to open Run command.
2. Type "DEVMGMT.MSC" and press enter.

3. Look for a device that has a yellow exclamation point next to it. If you have more than one, look for a device that says "Multimedia Audio Controller".
4. Right click on the device that has a yellow exclamation point next to it and select Properties.
5. Click the Driver tab and select Update Driver.
6. Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
7. Select "Browse...".
8. Browse to the extracted folder and select the "Vista" folder if you have the 32 bit version of Windows. If you have the 64 bit version of Windows, then select the "Vista64" folder. If Windows tells you there are no compatible drivers after step 9, then select the WDM folder and repeat step 9.
9. Click OK and then click Next.

10. Ignore all errors that Windows may give you and install the driver, restart the computer, and try to play a music file.


Good luck, post back if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa,

Does acer aspire 4315 wire less net supports in win7 ? ?


As of the moment there is no driver support for the Acer Aspire 4315. If you have already installed Windows 7 and you can connect to a cable internet through your Ethernet Port, you can try downloading and install Driver Genius Professional which can assist you in getting the compatible driver. Since this software can detect even unknown devices.

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us

I have an older Acer Aspire 3000... it recently became to cluttered and when I tried to reformat loading windows 7 ultimate, it stopped saying it couldn't find everything it needed. I'm fairly certain its...


Not all systems are supported by Windows 7. Infact many items that were supported by vista are not supported in windows 7.

looking at your system specs you woudl originally have AMD Mobile Sempron 3000+ / 1.8 GHz , 256mb ram and windows xp home as your original.

this system does not meet the minimum requirements to run Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 at all.

minimum specs for windows 7 are

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

  • i do not recommend a 1ghz system. i would recommend a 2ghz or better with 2GB of memory for a basic version

    I need to use windows server 2003 R64 bit as the operating system on the laptop


    Hi there.
    Sorry but Windows server 2003 relies on XP drivers, your laptop only supports Vista so the drivers will not work.
    You can however test Server 2008 which will take Vista drivers, download and test it here >>>>>>

    Software incompatibility on my acer aspire6930-6455


    Well, we wont know until you try. In my opinion, your 32/64 bit issues will be solved, but you would still have the normal vista/xp compatibility issues.

    But that is to be expected, like when we all upgraded from win98 to XP.

    So - I would recommend downgrading to Vista 32 bit, or getting the 64bit software version of the programs you want to use.

    Good Luck, and let me know what you did, and how it turned out! :)

    64-BIT PROGRAMS runs on 64-BIT OPERATING SYSTEMS

    The 64-BIT Processor has nothing to do with it, it serves a different purpose specifically, to the OPERATING SYSTEM.
