Windows 7: Utilities for Acer Aspire 3680

Utilities for Acer Aspire 3680

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 with 1.5 GB ram with Vista Home. I upgraded it to Windows 7. Now everything is fine except the fact that Acer has not made any Utilities (like "Acer Empowering Technology) for Windows 7.

Is it possible to use such Utilities from other (later) Acer models? If so, which one should I use.

Thanks.

I've used later model drivers on my previous gen machines before with good effect. Try to find a model with hardware similar to yours, then download and install the drivers for it.

I won't say this won't mess up your computer though.

To see your hardware, try this excellent program.
