To create a restore point follow the steps below:
- Exit all open programs
- Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click System Restore
- Click the Create a Restore point button
- Click Next
- Select an appropriate restore point in the Restore point description box, and then click the Finish button

You can automate the process by using a Driver Update Tool such as DriverDownloader. Some of the advantages of using a driver update tool are:
Fast – a Driver Update Tool can take less than 2 minutes to update all outdated drivers.
Reliability – a good Driver Update Tool updates only 100% genuine drivers.
Efficacy – with reputable driver update tools you can be assured that you will get only the latest and compatible drivers.
DriverDownloader is monitored and certified by AppEsteem.

I got a problem with wireless network adapter diver.
I have a Acer 4749Z, recently I’d reinstalled windows 7 ultimate again without backing up divers, then I went to Acer Driver download page to download driver and install drivers.
But after, I coudn’t turn on wifi, I used Intel Wireless Network Adapter, there are 4 drivers(Atheros, Broadcom, Intel, and Realtek) for wireless on Acer driver download page, I installed all them, but my laptop just appeared Intel Wireless at desktop box and Qualcomm driver for Internet(not wireless) in Deveice Managemet. It showed that ” Adapter Problem: Driver is not installed”
But I’d done an installion before. So what can I do now to use the wifi connection?
Please help me!
Sorry if I write wrong, my english is not good!

Hi Michael – it should be fine if you restart the program – this usually works but if not you may need to uninstall/ reinstall.

I have a three month old Acer Aspire. I cannot download files to the cd from the documents. The send button and the move buttons are not copying the files to cd. The files are ready to be written. Everything else works
Hi Anna – what error are you getting? Are you sure the CD’s are writable/ re-writable?

I have got a slight problem with the display of my laptop. I reinstalled my Acer Aspire laptop with Windows & ultimate. After installation I am seeing that the display is a little bit hazy. If I run any videos, then dots are appearing on the screen or the picture is breaking up into pixels. Do I require any additional driver for that? As in other laptop/computers I have never faced this kind of problem.
Can I clarify – did you upgrade from windows 7 to windows 8? You can try the drivers scan using the link above and this will tell you if you need driver updates. You don’t need to register the software to just run the scan
I have an acer aspire es1-711 laptop. The keyboard has stopped working and makes a clicking sound every time a press a key. It has been shipped off to be repaired 2 times already and the problem still hasn’t been fixed. So far, it seems acer is a crappy company.
Hi Brent – can you try creating a new users and see if you get the same issues?

Hi Vek – did you buy this new? If so, I would get them to replace it as it is not acceptable to have problems like straight away
I have an Acer Aspire v5-561G with Windows8.1 which i bought 1 week ago. I got 3 major problems :
1)Mostly every time I turn on the laptop it shows a black screen just before the login screen, I have to restart once or twice for it to get it back to normal.
2)Sometimes it shows something like “Working on updates, don’t turn off computer” after turning on and it takes forever..
3)When I start a game called “AION” it says “display driver stopped responding and recovered..” and go black screen again.

Try Downloading & Installing the Wireless Driver for the Windows OS before Windows 7. (e.g- Windows Vista or XP.)for the same bit OS if a 32 bit (x86) or a 64 bit (x64) & try them ***NOTE***Restart PC after each new Driver installation but Create a Restore Point Before Any Driver Installs incase of issues Occur during installation.
