I have an Acer Laptop which was recently formatted, however, it came back with no sound. What can I do to get sound from the pc


Hi,

You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your motherboard. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with your laptop.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

Unknown device sm bus controller


What I do in such circumstances is run a little piece of freeware called "Unknown Device Identifier" which does a pretty good job of telling me what device is not working properly, identifying the manufacturer, which allows me to look up the support site and get the driver necessary to correct the problem. I've found that to be the quickest and surest way to resolve such issues.

You can also try double clicking the device in device manager and then selecting "update driver" and see if Windows can locate it on your hard drive or search the internet [providing you have a working connection] to find the appropriate driver and install it. I find it works about half of the time.

There is are other trouble shooting methods and the Microsoft Knowledge base does the most straight forward job of defining them so rather than reinvent the wheel I'll present them as written there:


The main reason for Unknown Device to display in your Device Manager is because you have a device that is not working correctly. To fix this issue, obtain an updated driver for the device.

Use the following methods to enable Windows to recognize your device. Method 1: Windows Update loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Visit the following Microsoft Web site to see whether the Web site autodetects an updated driver for your device. Install all recommended drivers. http://www.windowsupdate.com (http://www.windowsupdate.com) Method 2: Download and install the latest driver from the Internet loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); When you download a driver from the Internet, download the Windows XP version of the driver when multiple Windows versions are listed. Use one of the following options:
  • Visit the Web site of the computer manufacturer if the device came with the computer.
  • Visit the Web site of the device manufacturer if the device was installed after you purchased your computer.
  • Visit the Web site of the device manufacturer if the device was preinstalled on your computer and the computer manufacturer does not have an updated driver.
Look for a Drivers section or a Download section on the manufacturer’s Web site, and search for the device name. Download and install the Windows XP version of the driver. Advanced user section loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); This section is intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help or contact support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus (http://support.microsoft.com/contactus) Causes of unknown devices in Device Manager loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');
  • The device does not have a device driver: When a device driver for a device is not available, Device Manager displays the device as Unknown Device and puts it in the Other devices branch. This is very common with universal serial bus (USB) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) 1394 composite devices. Also, a status of Error Code 1 or Error Code 10 may be displayed when you view the properties of the device in Device Manager.

    Note Most USB and IEEE 1394 devices function correctly without additional device drivers because they are configured by the drivers that are included with Windows for these bus types. However, an additional device driver is needed if the device does not fit the defined and supplied Windows class drivers. If the bus cannot identify the device, it interprets the device as a composite device and then reports it as such in Device Manager.
  • You are using a Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows 95 Device Driver: You cannot use virtual device driver (.vxd) files that are common to Windows 98 or to Windows 95 drivers in Windows XP. If you try to install them on your Windows XP-based computer, the device may be listed as unknown in Device Manager. This typically occurs when the device driver manufacturer does not correctly differentiate between the two drivers or assumes that Windows XP can use Windows 98 or Windows 95 .vxd files.
  • Unrecognized Device ID: Every hardware device has a special identifier that is used by Plug and Play. This identifier can include several different types, such as vendor ID, device ID, subsystem ID, subsystem vendor ID, or revision ID. If a device ID is not present, or your Windows XP-based computer does not recognize the device ID, Device Manager may list the device as unknown.

    Note Software programs that require virtual hooks into hardware may create these devices. Additionally, devices that bridge between bus types, such as a device driver that enables a parallel port device to emulate a SCSI or an AT Attachment Packet Interface (ATAPI) bus, are also known to generate an unknown-device response in Device Manager.
  • Faulty Hardware or Firmware: Faulty hardware or firmware may cause a device to be displayed as Unknown Device in Device Manager. Software-only device drivers do not expose a device ID, and there is no standard method for installing these devices. Some manufacturers install the device by using the InstallShield installation program or a similar method. Be aware that software installed by other methods may not be completely removed when the device is removed in Device Manager. Therefore, you may have to check the registry to verify that all entries are removed.

Ethernet and video controller for acer travelmate 3260


Hello,
You may find all support and driver information on the acer's support website. You can follow the link below to reach your download section:
Acer drivers
If you have already tried these drivers and they still didn't work, you may have to install manually.

Right click the My Computer icon on your desktop or start menu and click properties. Select Hardware and then click device manager. Rightclick on the ethernet device and click the install driver option. WHen the install window pops up, select the option that says install from a list or a specific location and click next. Then check the box next to include this location in your search and browse to the inf file in the drivers folder that you downloaded and extracted from acer's website.

Do the same for the video controller. I tried this previously with another acer laptop and had to manually search in the folder for the inf file and install in this same way.

Good luck

Hi, I have an Acer TravelMate 2420. And every time I install windows XP it, for some reason, cannot find the wireless network hardware. And installing the driver seems to be useless as well. Any suggestion...


Try right-clicking on My Computer, go to Manage, then go into Device Manager. Inside Device Manager's list, do you see any devices with a yellow exclamation point? If not, expand the "Network adapters" section and see what's listed. It's possible that there is no wireless adapter in that laptop (unless you're sure there is one). Another possibility is that the wireless adapter is there, but not functional, faulty, or just plain broken. If the device is there and working, it should show up in Device Manager as an installed device; if it's there, but not working, it'll show up with an exclamation point. If it's not in the list at all, it's probably broken or the laptop doesn't have a wireless card.

Wireless adapter in Acer 5610-4610 is gone suddenly


Few ideas here, but obviously these are tricky questions.

Uninstall all software related to the wireless NIC, and then uninstall the hardware in device manager. Shut the machine down. Turn the machine over and remove all the little doors and look to see if the wireless NIC is an add-in card you can access. If it is, remove the retaining screw and remove it. Reboot machine, let it boot up, log in, and then shut down again. Reinstall the wireless card and close everything up again. When you reboot, you *should* get the new hardware found message, if you do, install the with the latest drivers and then reboot, and then check to see if the device is working properly in device manager (no warning messages). If it does not recognize the hardware, check in device manager if it has somehow put it on the unknown device list. If it has, try installing the latest drivers manually for the device by using properties tabs on unknown device in device manager.

If the problem is that the devices won't recognise and install their own drivers, you have a different problem which HP or whomever should solve.

Note, too, that if the laptop included custom control software for wireless connectivity (Intel, I am looking in your direction), the card may not be recognized without it, so install that software again, too.

Hope this helps...

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


Some device may not have Vista drivers or the drivers are still beta and they dont work always perfectly. Check which kind of wireless adapter is present on your laptop from device manager on XP. Then try downloading Vista drivers for your wireless adapter form wireless card factory website, and install them on Vista.
