Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Welcome to seven forums htinlinaugmkn: You need to go to the Acer site Acer Support - Drivers & Download and download the chipset drivers. Their is also a 4920 G model. Vista drivers only avalible and can be installed in compatbility mode It would also help to copy and paste a screen shot of your expanded device manger. So we can see if their are any yellow triangels next to any devices, in order to find drivers for them for you. Compatibility Mode Thanks Fabe

It is possible that it is another mobile graphic card that is in need of a modified .inf file. You can try doing this through ATI MobilityModder - Scroll down the page and you'll see your card is listed. If you can't get it to work through their directions. Then I would suggest you contact member torrentg as he has extensive success with getting these cards to function properly. Best of luck. Fabe
