Drivers - Acer Aspire 4520 + Windows 7 64bit Ultimate

Hi,

I've got a Acer Aspire 4520 notebook, that serves me very well.

just upgraded from 7 32bit to 7 64bit, all going smooth,

Except my co processor and a few other bits and peices aren't installed.. im missing the chipset driver... easy you say? download install it. well i wish...

Acer being useless as they are their 64bit Windows 7 ultimate driver doesn't work. complains that it wasn't designed for the os its currently running on, it was apparently designed for windows vista. some vista drivers do work on 7 but not this one, ive even run it in compatibility mode, no success. the driver that doesn't work is located here

Code:
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Chipset/Chipset_NVIDIA_13.11_W7x64_A.zip?acerid=633990342487895794&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire%204520&OS=701&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=AAP_9
I need to get this installed because with no drivers it keeps blue screening feeding bad data to kernel etc.... which is understandable.

By searching google theres every driver available for the Aspire 4520 except the chipset.... has anyone else got this laptop or over come this problem?

its driving me mental that every time i get the computer doing multiple tasks i get a blue screen.

please help, there must be some way. why would they release every driver but that one?

Thanks

*EDIT*

something else that might help is a screenshot of device mananger it shows what is not installed, if i could install these even manually it would solve the issue

Hi buddy.

Yes, in some cases finding drivers can be quite painful.

The driver to look for would be "NVIDIA nForce 610M" as I did a serch for technical specifications for your laptop model.

You can try to obtain them from here
Just wait for the page to load and then select your country.
click "Download Drivers"
In product type down drop box select "nForce"
In Product Series down drop box select "nForce 6 Series"
In Product down drop box select the nForce 610i / Geforce 7050
Change Operating System to Win 7 64bit and click search
Click Download btw its 210MB

Plase note, a friend of mine that is always involved with nvidia said if the drivers from nvidia don't work, try your manufacturer, in this case Acer.
The nForce 610i / Geforce 7050 is the only drivers that come close to yours.

I hope this helps.
I'll do more searching and post my findings, if any

Well ignore this as sReKcAh has beaten me to it, but with a more reliable driver page.

have you downloaded and installed any other drivers that acer has in thier list for your laptop make + model?
I see theres Audio, Bluetooth, camera etc, they too can apper as base Syatem Device or Unknown Device etc.

If you haven't try that, download them + install them.
reboot laptop and then check the device manager

okay, update.... getting there, everything is finally installed. what a hassle though... acer could at least make sure there windows 7 drivers actually work before posting them.

thanks you guys for your help. hope this stops the bluesceens but i think i got one just before this post..

screen randomly went black and laptop restarted then sat there and hung till i manually turned off and powered back up. I wont count that as a bluescreen as i hadn't done a restart after installing the new drivers..

Hi, I was having the same problem with my Acer. Acer has finally posted a driver for our chipset. I'm going to run this and see if this stops the bluescreens. Also, are you having any problems with windows update. Every time I run it, I have to use system restore to undo it. I'm hoping this was due to not having a chipset driver installed. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Ok nevermind. Now I see what you mean by the drivers not working. They should make sure that they work before posting them. So did you use the Vista x64 chipset driver from Acer? How is that going for you? Please let me know. I'll post anything new that I find.
