  1. are these xp drivers working?
    how can i know which webcam driver i need to use?? finding the hardware id wont solve my problem.

    moreover how to i know which driver to install? i didnt get any driver name, finding the hardware ids. I just got a name like 'abcd123/rev-12xdysahaasd', something like that, where i can understand which driver to use. It includes no device name.

  2. 1. For the webcam, try both driver, there are no risk installing wrong driver.

    2. For the other driver, open device manager and look how many devices mark with yellow exclamation(!) or Question mark.

    3. Hardware ID determine the manufacture, hardware type and hardware model,of course you will get the code which wil look like PCI/ven_XXXX&rev.

    4.My suggestion is look at the device manager (to open device manager right click on MY computer and select manage).
    For the devices mark with yellow get the hardware ID. You can copy the hardware ID by highlight it and press CTRL + C to copy the ID (you cannot right click and select copy in windows xp, that options only for Windows 7).

    Post the hardware ID here

  4. hi again, i tried that, i have a prob with PCI SIMPLE COM Controllers.
    Its Hardware ID is :

    "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B64&SUBSYS_04821025&REV_06
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B64&SUBSYS_04821025
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B64&CC_078000
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B64&CC_0780"

    I have some trouble with Wi-fi and bluetooth connection: 'not able to find any devices in the surrounding'.

    And another ques. . . I couldnt see any specific devices for webcam, blutooth and wi-fi.
    This is the screenshot:(delete this link after you have a look at it)http://h1.ripway.com/rvittalkiran/devman.JPG

    Download

    2. look at the device manager picture you posted, under the imaging device, you will see the USB Video device, that is the webcam and you already installed the driver..

    3. for the WIFI, look under network adapter, Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Netwrk Adapter - that is your wifi and you already installed the driver.

    4. for bluetooth
    BLUETOOH:
    Broadcom Bluetooth Driver
    Download

    for the wifi, you will see a small icon on your right sidebar, double click on that to search available network,

    p/s: sorry for my late reply

  10. hi Blackx, thanks... bluetooth is working. I've found your blog helpful and so i've backlinked it in my blog.

    I need to install ubuntu to this laptop, having trouble doing that. It report about faulty CD/Harddrive, any idea abt getting this done?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ok it seem that you have the basic knowledge about OS and i guess you are Advance users,
    Normally i wouldn't expect hardrive error unless you can't install windows too.
    If the CD faulty it may cause either from the CD itself or your CD-rom drive, I suggest download new ISO file from ubuntu, and burn it on new empty CD.

    There are 2 ways to Install ubuntu 1st is by Installing inside windows and 2nd is by full install.
    If you want to install inside winodws you can read my tutorial here:
    http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2011/02/install-ubuntu-inside-windows-wubi.html

    ReplyDelete
  12. yep, i tried installing wubi. I downloaded the iso file just before i wanted to install and burnt it into a brand new blank cd. But it didn work, 700MB of download when in waste. i do have a shipped copy of ubuntu, it didn work too. I will have to call the customer support of acer.

    Thank You and BYE for now.

  20. hi I am trying to install xp in my acer but cannot install and showing blue screen can u help me thanks in advance

    ReplyDelete
  21. well, first i never try to install xp on this laptop, but so far most of the acer laptop have an option at the BIOS to change form MODE: IDE to AHCI, so open your BIOS and change that value, press F10 to save the configuration and restart. then try to install xp again.
    Another way to do is quite complicated method which is slipstreaming sata driver which you can read here:

  32. hi baaz, your wifi is Atheros not broadcom, the most driver that seem to match your ID is Atheros AR5b97:

    File name: xp3264-9.2.0.104-whql
    Download:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?5psok7bk2lrnn1m

    extract the file and remember where you extract it.
    Open device manager and right click for the network controller mark with yellow and select update driver.
    No to connect and select advance, next.
    click browse and point to the driver we extracted earlier.
    continue with on screen instruction.

    For the bluetooth, did it present in the control panel (bluetooth setting etc) or does any devices in device manager listed represent the bluetooth, if yes is the yellow mark on it or not?

    ReplyDelete
  33. First of all thanks a tonne man it really worked and people lemme tell u this guy is genious.

      3. Open device manager (click start - select run - type DEVMGMT.MSC and press enter)

      4. Right click on the network marked with yellow. Select update driver.

      5. Select NO to connect, then select ADVANCE....

      6. Click browse and point to the extracted driver folder and continue with on screen instruction.
