Acer Aspire 5516 Notebook
Acer Aspire 5516
This is a report on upgrading from Vista Home Basic to Windows 7 Home Premium.
I didn't do a Clean Install as I was worried about drivers, etc.. It turns out that everything went smoothly except for the graphics card driver. (Radeon 1200)
What I found out was that the default video driver was unacceptable, but I figured out what was needed. I couldn't find a good driver for it on the ATI web site. The Catalyst Control Center which is ~69MB did not work. Eventually I went to the Acer web site (us.acer.com) and found a Catalyst download that is 109MB. This is the one that works.
Everything now works properly.
Except I defragged with Defraggler and it couldn't get rid of all the fragmented file and there is a separate section that Defraggler doesn't even touch that Windows Defrag calls PQ*something. That is for a new post though.
