I wouldn't pay for it but that is just me. If your computer is working, there is no need to update your drivers. If it isn't and you ask for help and give as much information as possible, chances are you will get it working and feel good about it at the same time... w/o having to spend your money in the interim

There are several program that ( search and find ???? drivers for your sytem...) many are pure junk. some do a 50/50 job, so are simply pay and we shal Provide.)

When in doubt locate your driver via control panel, devices. simply delete the driver in question. and when you reboot, Win7 will install the latest (WDDM) driver.
I have tested about 8 different programs and WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANY. Some FREEbies are OK, but takes forever to get click and wait, click and wait... click and wait... SUKs. At present Driver Genius Pro, has provided the BEST most reliable.. but it is a PAY program.

The Acer website is the best place for you to get your drivers.

Agreed, I use this and it found updated chipset drivers that ASUS was not yet providing on their website.

PS - you might want to correct the title of your thread from drives to drivers!

reece,

The first place to look is the Acer website.

Acer Aspire 5310 drivers

Vista drivers will normally work in Win7.
