reinstalled vista from the rc

hey guys
some people know that i posted a thread last week saying about reinstalling vista without me losing my files. then after a while i didnt care about losing files i just wanted vista back. i had lost my installation cd for my acer laptop and had to use my sister's dell inspiron reinstallation cd. that worked out fine (although it thinks the laptop is dell but that is a minor issue). the only is, i lost all the drivers for the screen and wi-fi but found those two easily on the acer website. trouble is, using Driver Updater, it scanned and found 9 out of date drivers and i need help finding the missing drivers! they are

Intel ICH9 Family PCI Express Root Port 1 - 2940 Root Port 2 - 2942 Root Port 3 - 2944 Root Port 4 - 2946 and Root Port 5 - 2946

Intel ICH9 Family SMBus Controller - 2930

Intel ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919

And Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader




lots of thanks to anyone who finds ONE driver that works on my lappy

Why not let the intel driver utility find the updates for you ? its here Intel® Driver Update Utility for graphics drivers - Check for the latest driver.

i have installed all the acer website ones-- thats y i am trying to find them manually-- the intel website driver detector thing just stays "analyzing. please wait" and does nothing!

UPDATE: wait, the driver update utility only scans the chipset, not other devices!
