Go here, and put in your computer information. You will need to update your BIOS.
This is a tricky process that I don't even like doing, and I am a computer repairer.

Follow the instructions word by word, or else you may cause serious problems.

Dear sir, I have acer power desktop. Previously it windows xp. But when I installed windows 7 all is right but except video. The driver what i have does not work in win 7. How can i install that driver in...


Yes you need to know what video card "or chipset" was used in your pc from Acer. May actually need to open the pc up to see the model of the board if its an onboard. Once you know what video card is in it or chipset if onboard then you can go to that manufactures website and see they have a win7 driver. If not your looking for a new video card but thats rarely the end

Is it possible to upgrade windows XP to windows 7


If you are asking could you upgrade directly from Windowx XP to Windows 7 as a direct upgrade, the answer is yes but it's not recommended.

The much better method is to use Windows Easy Transfer to move your important files from your computer onto an external hard drive. After all your files are backed up safely, it's best to start the Windows 7 install and when you get to the "Upgrade" or "Custom (advanced)" screen to choose Custom. This will open up the drive view. Click on "Drive options (advanced)" which will bring up the ability to delete the partitions.

If you find that you have more than one shaded area in the Drive 0 bar, you have more than one partition. Unless you have experience creating and modifying partitions, only delete the partitions on Disc 0 which are marked Drive (C:). Otherwise, you can decide what partitions you need to delete to make enough room for Windows 7.

I'm not sure if you've already done your homework or not but before you upgrade to Windows 7, run the update advisor to ensure your system and software is Windows 7 ready and make sure to collect the hardware drivers that work with the exact version of Windows 7 you are installing... 32 bit and 64 bit are totally different monsters!!!

Having all of your software install disks on hand, and all your backups (and a bootable copy of the backup software!!) and Windows 7 hardware drivers on an external hard drive is the best way to approach an upgrade.

Best of luck!! Hope this helps.

Make sure your print spooler service is running. This article in the Lexmark website about How to Restart or Reset the Print Spooler in Windows might help you enable the service again. If problem continues, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Yes. Installing Windows 7 might be the problem.
Make sure that the driver you installed is compatible with Windows 7, or at least Windows Vista. (with compatibility mode)

I'm installing win7 on my old p30 laptop, and everything has worked except the wireless card. It can't install the driver. I found the winXP one from the samsung website, but when I try and install this...


Unfortunately, when upgrading to Windows 7 from XP or older operating systems, sometimes some functionality is lost that was there with the old operating system.

In my case, with an Acer Aspire from the year 2006, I lost the touchpad scrolling buttons. I couldn't get it to work for the life of me. I downloaded the latest drivers from Acer and from the touchpad manufacturer to no avail.

I wish you luck in finding the right driver for your laptop and Windows 7, but something tells me that it will be futile seeing that you already used one from the Samsung site, which is where I would have gone.

I need a SiS 6326 agp driver that works on windows 7,


Windows 7 is supposed to already support _many_ video-adapters.

However, your card is quite old, and probably is not supported by Windows Aero. So, buy a new AGP video-card that is listed as being compatible with Windows 7.

Hello, Is the Windows 7 is compatible to my Acer Laptap


Hi,
I would recommend sticking with windows xp on this model. New laptops are getting very inexpensive for the cost of windows 7 your better off buying a new laptop for 300$. If you operating system is performing up to what you think it should. I would consider backing up important data and formating and reinstalling windows.
Thank you,
Lee

Why my acer e500 cannot install 64 bit window 7 it say no driver when need to choose hard disk to install


you need to install Uli sata drivers in order for your motherboard to recognize the harddrive and cd drive.

download the drivers here: http://www.soft32.com/download_184082.html

and put them on a cd or memory card, when the system prompts you that you have no harddrive, you can load the drivers from a memory card or cd however if you use a cd you will face other issues. then you will be able to install windows 7 ;)

I did it on my acer e500 and it runs good.
I didn't install the 64 bits version though but the 32 bits.

for all the people saying that his pc is too old: if the pc can run under vista, it runs better under windows 7
