  8. Hello Sir,

    I already installed the VGA, but the lower version of the installer. Now, i have another problem, i tried installing the launch manager, but upon restarting, it gives me an error indicating "..wlanapi.dll not found..."
    i tried reinstalling the application, but still got the same error. your help is very much appreciated. thank you in advance.

  9. install Microsoft hotfix KB918997 here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=52A43BAB-DC4E-413F-AC71-158EFD1ADA50

    I believe wlanapi refer to tour wireless. commonly happen to D-link wireless. try reinstalling the wireless driver.

    this problems also occured when you upgrade XP to XP sp3.

    btw what version of VGA driver did you use, it may help others too

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hello again. thanks for your help and for giving me the link to the hotfix. it worked! :)
    anyway, with regards to the VGA driver, i downloaded the driver from Intel website. i just used the "HM55" chipset keyword.

    Thanks and have a nice day :)

  12. Hello sir,i'm going to buy acer aspire 4738z. Is it bluetooth enable laptop,i mean without using bluetooth dongle.

    ReplyDelete
  13. yes,so far base on the 4738z i have here, it has "Integrated" Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR, so you don't have to use bluetooh dongle

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yippie... If I could win one it will save time for me to make some other great project. I am so happy I found your website.

  15. Hi, greatly appreciate your help to community.

    I too have bought this laptop yesterday.

    Can you tell how can I know that which driver can be used from the dvd provided along with the laptop (on/for winxp-32)and which one I've to download separately from here. In other words, how can I know which driver is already available on driver dvd with me and which one is not (different from Win7 Drivers).

    2nd, my 4736z sticker says 'Intel GMA4500' then which chipset/vga I should go for?

    ReplyDelete
  16. use this one for you vga:
    Intel VGA Driver v8.15.10.2119 (look at my post for the download link.

    just install the drivers you get from the CD/DVD. to check you have all the drivers needed, open device manager (click start - select run - type DEVMGMT.MSC and press ok)
    A device manager will open and see if there any device with yellow mark. If you see that, state the name of the device.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hello,it's me again.Already purchased Acer 4738z,and still having some problem with Bluetooth things. When i install bluetooh driver then it showed:"No Bluetooth device was detected.Please make sure that your bluetooh device is plugged in properly in order to continue installation" what does that mean? Do i still need BT dongle to connect?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Different place manufacturing different hardware, for example i have 2 similar F700 here, one have bluetooth and the other not. But did u ask the person who sell the notebook weather the it have bluetooth or not?

    another thing is have you take a look at the device manager, see if there any devices with yellow, and the DVD you have, try to look if there any driver for bluetooth.

    by default your model should have the bluetooth

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm having problems installing Wifi and Bluetooth.

    For both, software reports 'Successful installation' but hardware not found.

    I know that hardware exists (Win7 finds it) but driver is not succeeding in actual.

  39. i can't install acer 4738z webcam driver.it ask me to turn on the device.how to switch on the device?need help badly...thank u.

    ReplyDelete
  40. hi there, normally if it asked you to switch on you can press the Fn + *key, the *key may refer to F5 so you need to press Fn + F5, you can look at the keyboard which button represent the webcam, the press Fn and the other button.

    ReplyDelete
  41. salam bro...
    saya dah try tekan fn + F5 tetapi masih tidak berjaya.saya guna win 7 32 bit.sebelum ni guna 64 bit...camera jalan cantik.bila guna win xp 32 bit dan win 7 32 bit camera terus tak function lepas format.dah cuba install driver tetapi kluar prompt suruh turn/switch on device.thanx a lot bro...

    ReplyDelete
  42. ada 3 jenis driver iaitu suyin , chicony dan liteon, dah cuba tiga2 tak, dalam device manager ada tak unknown usb device ataupun apa2 deviec yang bertanda kuning?

    ReplyDelete
  43. dah try tiga2 tapi still takbleh.takde plak detect unknown device.maybe pasal device tu tak switch on...tu yg tak dapat detect new hardware.ada yg kata kena guna driver yg ada pada cd acer tapi masalahnya hilang plak cd driver acer tu...

    ReplyDelete
  44. yang terbaik adalah guna CD driver, biasanya kalau webcam dalam CD tu ada Crystal eye ebcam application bersama dengan syin/liteon etc. Cuba install yang ni:

    Suyin webcam + acer crystal eye application
    version: 5.2.19.3

  61. Fungsi driver adalah untuk mmbuatkan devices berfungsi dalam OS. Jadi kalau bolehh connect wifi maknanya driver tu ok, kalo xleh connect kne carik driver yg sesuai.
    Utk hack wifi perlukan software bukan driver dan mungkin ada diskusi pasal ni dalam forum2 lain, kebnyakan website yg share pun (software hack) xkan bertahan lame sbb akn mndapat amaran dari pihak2 trtntu. Kbnyakan software hack bnyak dalam forum laman web dari cina tp disarankan berhati-hati. sesetngah software mgkin adalh malware dan spyware. Biasanya software ni digunakan untuk mendapatkan WEP key untuk access wireless yg mmrlukan wepkey. Biasanya software ni disedikan untuk OS linux.

    soal terjamin tu sukar utk saya confirmkan, cuma driver ni dari ACER sendiri, saya dah cuba keatas 2 model 4738z dan tiada masalah.
    kalau ada masalah nnt saya boleh cuba bntu, cuma saya xmmpu berjanji krn saya bukanlah pakar tp cuma mmbntu dgn berkongsi sedikit sbnyak yg saya tahu.

    1. biasanya perkara ni terjadi sbb bukan xda dvd driver tapi sbb CD wndows 7 tu corrupt file dia (bad cd/bad burn process) dan amat biasa berlaku jika guna pendrive.
      Hal ni jugak boleh disebabkan DVD tu dah xstable (kadang detect kadang2 x)
