Acer 51000 does not have solution other than new mainboard. They have design flow and ATI chip get burned and nothing you can do. Even changing BGA chip does not help all the time, than you have other weird problems like DVDRW/HDD not being recognized. Right solution is to sell it for parts and get some other laptop

Neeed to install sm bus controler driver for Acer aspire 5100 dos anyone knows where to get it


The sm bus controller can usually be loaded from the chipset download available at Acer support drivers. If you have XP, I will include a link below for the driver download. I will also include the link to Acer support, just cick on drivers > put in "notebook" > "Aspire" > 5100. A list of drivers will appear, pick your operating system from the drop down menu and under that a list of driver downloads will appear. Download the drivers for "chipset" and "Card bus reader" . Make sure to copy the entire link below and paste to your browser address bar. If the link doews not complete, go to the link further down, and follow the directions above.

Acer aspire 5100 laptop has ati graphics driver problem-black scn


Alright. Re-install the ATI drivers but when it asks, select Custome setup.

When it shows the components to be installed, select the Drivers only, Do not install the Catalyst program.

This turned out to be my situation a few years back.

Give it a try and let me know and we can go from there.

Good luck

Computer screen


Hi,

Offhand I would suspect video and/or its drivers. Pls try starting in "Safe Mode" and determine if problem persists. If no, then you may need to reload/update your video drivers, if yes, then you have a problem with the video card (hardware). I believe an Acer Aspire 5100 uses ATI Radeon® Xpress 1100 chipset. Am no just sure if it is an add-on card or integrated into the motherboard. Perhaps what you can do is to open the panels underneath the laptop and verify if the different cards including the memory are seated correctly.

Additionally, a post by Mark_Webber, another FixYa expert, addressed a slightly similar concern with another Acer Aspire 5100 here. It might be of additional information. This page might be interesting if not likewise informative.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Where can i get driver updates for my aspire 5100 "orbicam"


If you want driver updates go toooooo

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html


i have the same problem with drivers i can't ever update the drivers on my ATI graphics card on the actual ATI site.

you have to go to that site, and select your acer aspire model from a dropdown list.

(sometimes the number is not exactly the same but get the closest one posible, eg. have an aspire 1682, but the drivers for it are listed under aspire 1680. as a guide make sure the second last digit is equal to the digit of yours.)

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
