Acer Launch Manager for Windows 10

WHAT IS LAUNCH MANAGER - WHAT DOES IT DO
It seems that no more Launch Manager downloads available for latest Acer notebook which pre-installed with Windows 10. Some of you might asking why we need to install it, What actually Launch Manager do?. The main function of Acer Dritek Launch Manager is to display particular function on your Screen/LCD whenever you pressed certain key or hotkey on your keyboard. A simple example and a very good reason to use Launch Manager is when you press the CAPS LOCK key, it will display an icon on your LED/LCD screen showing CAPS LOCK is ON or OFF.

We use hotkey a lot to change our Laptop setting such as Fn + F8 to mute and un-mute,  or Fn + left or right Arrow to change Volume if you are using 15 inch laptop.  Without Launch Manager, when you press the mute button, there are no LED light or any indicator saying your laptop is mute or not.  Further more, without launch manager, when you increase the volume using the hotkey, you will only see a single horizontal bar. With Launch manager you can see A speaker ICON with volume Bar.

Launch Manager Driver/Application for Windows 10.
Acer only uses Dritek Launch Manager, and even it is part of drivers downloads, it is only a software and Windows Version compatibility normally doesn't effect the requirement for installation.
You only need to install Windows 7 Version of the Launch Manager, I use it on my Acer E15 (E1-511-C8QG) and it works just fine.

Acer Launch Manager
Version 5.1.15
Download (Windows 10 32-bit and 64-bit)
Download (Windows 10 64-bit)

Installation:
Unzip the package (extract the files)

Reboot after installation, you will see the changes after a reboot.

Acer Aspire V3-772G Windows 7 64-Bit Drivers and Installation

 Most Acer Aspire V3-772G pre-installed with Windows 8, and Acer support site provides Drivers only for Windows 8 , Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Not all Windows 8 drivers will work on Windows 7. The other problem is you can't install Windows 7 without changing the UEFI BIOS into Legacy BIOS. You can change it by power on your V3 and press F2 repeatedly until you see BIOS screen pop-out. Using arrow key on your keyboard select BOOT on top, and on BOOT mode select Legacy.

After that, press F10 to Exit and save changes. You computer will restart and you can continue with Windows 7 installation.

Windows 7 Drivers for V3-772G Drivers Set

I list out the drivers in installation order. it is not compulsory to follow the order give but from my experience this the best way to install it. There are drivers which you need to choose such as wireless, you must identify what is your hardware and select the right drivers. If you want the easy way, download both and try which work for you. I recommend to read my guide to identify your hardware.

Acer Aspire E1-531 Drivers for Windows 7

Actually you don't have to waste your internet quota by downloading and install all drivers provided by Acer on their support site. After Windows 7 Installation on Aspire E1-531, you will only need to install 3 drivers because all of the other drivers automatically installed. If you look at the device manager you will see there are 3 drivers missing which are:

Network Controller (Wireless)
Ethernet Controller (LAN)
PCI Simple Communication Controller (Card reader)

So, you will notice you would not be able to use your wireless, wired connection (LAN) and Card Reader Slot. So here is the drivers you will need: (for both Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit)

Wireless Drivers:
Most E1-531 uses Atheros Wireless drivers, but there are some models that uses broadcom or Intel Wireless device. Install according to your secification or test which work for you.
Atheros AR9xxx/AR5xxx Wireless Driver :  Download
Broadcom 802.11 Wireless Driver : Download
Intel Centrino Wireless-N 105 Driver : Download

LAN - Ethernet Controller
Broadcom Netlink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Download

Card Reader

That's all what you need and now after the installation your laptop will have all the drivers it need. If you need to update to the latest drivers, just simply go to Nvidia for your graphic, Intel for your graphic, chipset and USB and Realtek for your audio drivers. You will see "Automatically update" on each website (except realtek) and let it scan and suggest the latest drivers available for you laptop. Anyway, there are no significant improvement by installing the latest drivers, I will only update my drivers if there are bugs with the current drivers.

Acer Aspire One AOD270 Drivers Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1

Acer released Windows 7 32-bit support for this model and the reason for 32-bit is Intel GMA 3600/3650, the important issue about this graphic is it only released to work with windows 7 32-bit. Intel, Microsoft Update and Acer dodn't have support for other OS and it is officially state that this graphic design to work with windows 7 32-bit, not 64-bit. This netbook comes with 1GB of RAM. You need Minimum 4GB RAM to run Windows 64-bit or Other 64-bit OS. I already download and checked the drivers files (except audio and bluetooth - the file size is to big), so I re-make the driver list base on actual compatibility provided by each drivers. Some of them support all there OS (windows XP/Vista and 7). You may notice ACER named the driver x86 which refer to 32-bit system but if you check the drivers it also contain 64-bit support. Lastly to complete the list, I check the vendor website for additional support, example the original LAN drivers only support windows 7 32 and 64-bit. So, I just went to Realtek support site and look for download links for windows XP/Vista/8/8.1. They also list out support for other OS such Linux and Window Server/Media Center.

My recommendation : Choose windows 7 32-bit or Lightweight OS such as Linux Mint
