Question about Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook

1 Answer

No xp driver for wireless network card

Just had my acer 5100 notebook returned to me from the texas repair facillity after they replaced the mouse pd and it wouldnt boot up so they had me return it which i did and when i got it back the 2nd time it still wouldnt boot up so I called then again and they told me that the reason it wouldnt boot was because the hard drive was missing when they recieved my laptop for repairs the first time. I told them i hadnt removed it and that their technician must have lost it when they were repairing it...long story short they pretty much told me to F off and hung up on me so I have had to buy a new hard drive and install it. rather than load vista back on it I put windows xp home on instead and now everything works fine except the wireless network, xp does not recognize the wireless network device and i can not find a driver for it. any ideas out there? do i reformat the disc and load vista or can I replace the device or is there a fix anyone knows?

Used a wired connection and go to manufacturer's website to get the relevant drivers. Copy them to a USB thumb drive and then install them to the Acer.

Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager


If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.

http://driverstock.com/Acer-Aspire-5100-driver-download/4-21-12867/index.html
so ..my advise is to reinstall the windows xp ...cause this machine it was on xp from the first ...and this might be just the reason ..those are the drivers for it
also ...you can download Everest software ...and locate the exact name of the wifi platform ..and look after that for a vista driver for it by its name ......this way you cant be wrong ...cause you locate the suitable driver ...not the ones they feed us in packages...
