Windows 7: Extensa 5620Z Acer to Windows 7 Professional 32

Extensa 5620Z Acer to Windows 7 Professional 32

I'm resurrecting this thread from the dead, I hope there's still someone around who can help me.

I'm upgrading my girlfriend's Extensa 5620Z Acer to Windows 7 Professional 32 bit from Vista. I did the same with my own Vaio Z620D. The thing that has me worried is that when I upgraded the Vaio, there was a multitude of drivers I had to download and install in a specific order to make sure the computer worked as it should.

I've been sniffing around, looking for a similar list of drivers for the Extensa, but have come up blank. Will the Extensa work fine (WLAN, LAN, Chipset, VGA, etc.) if I just install Windows 7?

Thanks for the help,
Bear

Hello Beartholomew, welcome to Seven Forums!


It's a safe bet that Windows 7 will install the needed drivers during/after the install completes and if need be you can install the Vista drivers in "Compatibility" mode and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Windows 7 installer is driver-complete, with newer drivers arriving quickly after install via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager should be imported from the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model, or the device manufacturer's Support Downloads webpage for the model Device.

Drivers given by the installer should not be changed out willy-nilly unless performance problems point to a driver specifically. That said, you can try newer drivers not supplied by optional Updates, but there are often reasons why Updates doesn't supply them.

I went ahead with the install without any drivers saved in advance. It went off without a hitch! Thanks for the help, everyone.
