Windows 7: Drivers - Acer Aspire 4520 + Windows 7 64bit Ultimate


19 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 

I emailed Acer about the problem with their chipset driver link, and they hastily replied with a link to the same driver that I told them was the wrong one. It wasn't a confusing letter, just straight to the point. I'm not surprised at their incompetence, just amazed that here it is three months after the official release of Windows 7 and still no driver for this. However, I did notice that the Aspire 4520 isn't in the list of Windows 7 compatible machines. I went ahead and installed the Vista Ultimate x64 chipset driver in Vista Service Pack 2 compatibility mode. I haven't bluescreened yet, but I am still afraid to run Windows updates. My computer is working fine and I have too much work to do to have anymore setbacks with that.
Oh, the CIR driver is for the Infrared Transmitter on the front of the computer. I'm guessing yours has one. I've never used it, but some older cellphones had them to transfer files wirelessly before bluetooth. I'm sure it doesn't hurt to install that driver.
I'll post more on this if Acer sends me anything useful or if I figure something else out.

i think it might have something to do with Jdownloader (java based downloader rapidshare etc...) as it seems it only does it when its running.... might just be a freak coincidence though

Thanks this forum has helped me so much already

I did install that driver in compatibility mode and everything seems to be working fine. Acer emailed me back again and said they don't recommend changing the factory settings. But Windows 7 runs way better then vista did, even with the wrong chipset driver. It doesn't sound like they are working too hard to fix the problem and it doesn't seem like nvidia is too worried about the problem either. Maybe between the two we could get a driver eventually. I've never checked my dump files before. I don't seem to be having any problems with jdownloaders though. You might look into getting RegCure 2.0. Previous versions of this mess windows 7 all up. But this version works very well and my computer is running very well. I still haven't tried windows updates yet. I'm going to do that this evening after I get my school work done. I'll post the results of that whenever it's done.
