I've seen a question on here but it didn't seem to answer my question. I
bought an Acer 5510z laptop last month with Vista business, and it doesn't
appear to be compatible with the software I need to run on it. I have
downgraded to XP by just using an XP pro disc and installing it on the C
drive as advised by the Acer guy. However, as you've all figured, the machine
now has hardly any of the necessary device drivers. XP loads up, but in
hardware profiles, the big yello question marks are everywhere, most
importantly next to network drivers which means I can't plug in a network
The Acer support were useless, as they now say that the laptop needs generic
sata drivers which it doe not come with as it was made for vista, but being a
'nice guy' he reccomended that I d/load Generic drivers and this will get me
up and running.
Help ! Where do i get these generic drivers from if Acer don't do them?
Obviously the machine didn't come with any recovery/install discs.
Is here a site where I can d/load things either to a USB stick or even an
external floppy (usb) if I need to?
Appreciate any help... in basic steps pls !!
