First post... Be nice!
I recently upgraded from 32-bit Windows Vista HP to 64-bit Windows 7 HP, and as I've been going through reinstalling programs and updating drivers
, I've come across a problem.
My old Acer Empowering Technology software has not been kept through the installation (as nothing else did, clean install!). But I really need the old software, as it manages my webcam and the buttons above my keyboard are now nullified (eg. shortcut to email and internet).
Another problem I've encountered is sound. Other than the icon in the taskbar I have no on screen control.
There are a few other little glitches, but its just a little annoyance really.
I've been on the Acer Empowering Technology site, and although it only listed 5 different options, I chose the one with the closest model to mine (Aspire 5510 and 9500 Notebook... http://support.acer-euro.com/empowering_technology/utility.html
). However, as expected it told me I was running the wrong version on Windows for this, and didn't complete the installation process.
Does anybody know of any way to get the software back?
Many thanks, Alice.
