Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I,m no expert by the way. Each time I start my Acer 5100 A dialogue box opens 'Loading new driver' The driver relates to my pre-installed ATI Radeon ExpressDisplay adaptor. It runs for a while and then asks me if I want to continue. If I do it runs awhile then stops and asks me to contact the manufacturer. etc Also something I think associated with it prevents me from running System Restore and also has prevented my computer from starting up, invoking the start up recovery program. Any my device manager informs me that the device is working perfectly well. My questions are: do I need this new driver in the first place? If so how can I run/load/update it? In the short term how can I stop it from running at each start up of my laptop? Is this a common fault with Acer 5100s and if so is there a patch available to sort it out Help!!!
You can probably reload the video driver from the recovery partition using the Acer recovery steps. Your manual should give very specific instructions. Or you might be able to get a driver from the Acer web site itself. That might be the one that is causing you problems, though. Mary

Firstly try going to Start-Run-Type msconfig- move to startup tab and untick anything ATI related. Then apply and restart when it loads there will be a box to tick and tell it not to pop up again. Then go to the Acer UK or US website and download the original driver for your Video device and install it to be sure that your graphics are installed properly
