Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Video drivers got rid of vista on my acer aspire 3680. now i have xp again...yeah! I have three devices that will not work. "Mass Storage controller" "Video Controller" and "Video Controller (VGA compatible)" I downloaded the apropriate drivers from the acer site but every time I install them they crash my cp.


Answers :

It may be that there is a problem with the bios, as Vista enabled laptops have a later bios version, but i assume that you have exclamation marks where you mention these devices, if not then you have windows generic drivers running instead which will need to be uninstalled first especially the raphics driver as that would cause the main crashes.\015\012\015\012if you have no exclamation marks against these devices right click on each and select uninstall.\015\012\015\012Try again to install or run the drivers then restart the notebook and see which drivers the system tries to install, if you get the choice install them manually and point windows to install the drivers from where you have them saved if you are unable to run them.\015\012\015\012if you do succeed my advice is to install Vista on a seperate partition as i did so as to enable a dual boot and have both systems available when i need them
