I would check for windows 7 specific drivers for the bluetooth and the orbicam. Beyond that, I have heard and experienced problems with windows 7 not supporting all accessories and peripherals of laptops.

For instance, I had a basically unsolvable problem with the scroll keys on the touchpad not working after upgrading to windows 7 from Vista on an Aspire 3680 series laptop which was only a few years old.

I had to find a workaround for it, by using the arrow keys instead.

You might have to try workarounds for your problems, like getting a new external webcam for the webcam problem.

The bluetooth is a little bit harder to fix, though, because it's integrated into the computer, generally, like my touchpad.

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

If your Acer Aspire is anything like mine (AX1420-UR12P) then you have a great compture. You just need to "?nable" it to use Bluetooth. I use windows 10 but 7 shouldn't be much different. Go to settings where you see the Features, and select option to turn on or off systems features. You'll have a list and on it is enabling Bluetooth. without using this feature its impossible to connect

I need a serial number from a acer notebook running windows vista premium/home premium. Mine is a 751h and runs basic, so they won't ship me the free upgrade. However, there are videos all over the...


The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.
