Quick summary of my issue:
I just bought a new acer (link
) and proceeded to install windows 7 (64-bit) straight ahead. I must admit i made a bit of a mistake when i didn't check if the box it got shipped in contained any drivers
or such (which it didn't to my surprise!)
Currently got experience with 32-bit Windows 7, but not with 64-bit which I've heard had a rough time with bugs. Because my system is a 64-bit platform i suppose this might be one of the reasons for my problems. On a side note, this system is shipped out with both onboard gfx and an extra card (the ATI 4670 one) But on to the main issue
; Currently my problem with this system is an issue regarding my ATI mobility radeon HD4670 GFX card. (This is the drivers I've tried soo far:
Without any drivers, this is how my Device Manager list my display units. As you will notice windows update have already found some driver for it. But the Device will not start (This device cannot start. (Code 10)) After Installation of Driver software (Driver link #1):
I've just installed the drivers Attachment 17057
Basicly the whole installation goes smooth, but after that, well, everything goes apeshift* Attachment 17058
But in Device manager the ATI Radeon Mobility 4670 card actually is enabled, but still the Mobile Intel 45 Chip is the used display adapter.
(which has left me to think about trying to find some new drivers for this hardware, maybe that might help
) Attachment 17059
With drivers installed im now getting new options in the "Screen resolution" window if i push the "Detect" button Attachment 17060
But here everything stops for me, no matter what i do nothing good comes out, currently i've been trying to fix this computer while watching dexter, needless to say after watching trough two seasons this awesome series im getting quite annoyed with the lack of support for this hardware issue, both from ATI's and ACER's side.
Theres probably a handfull posts/treads about this issue, going to link those closest to my issue here (remove them if its against the agreement)
