Have you looked on Acers own website for driver downloads?

Any typos spelling mistakes are due to leprechauns in my keyboard they move the letters around sometimes (amended just for Bookie)

Okay I've found two updated drivers, but I need to know which one you have already, if you can find a logo in your taskbar (bottom right of windows bar) that maybe changes colour (looks like a touchpad actually), put your mouse cursor over it and some text should be displayed on it, it will either read "Synaptics Pointing Device" or "ALPS Pointing Device".

 

Once you know this, I can get a link for the updated drivers for you and give you info on how to install.

I also need which operating system you have, like Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit for example.

Okay, click Start and in the search box type "dxdiag" and hit enter.

A window will come up with a Yes or No option, click Yes and a large window will then open with a lot of information on it, in the center of this box it will have "Current Date/Time: 06th October 2009...."

"Computer Name"

and "Operating System: Windows Vista..."

 

Inform me of what it says in the Opertaing System part and I can send you the link to download.

wow...that is cool lol..ok so it says windowsvista home premium (6.0,build 6001)

 

I am not sure if you are familiar with this acer laptop but it says hdmi on it, so If i bought a hhdmi cable I could watc the laptop on the tv? But do you know what other wire i need (for the sound)...and do i just plug them both in to which bit?...sorry that was an additionl query lol

 

again thank you thanyou !

Well, as long as your TV has a HDMI port on it, just plug it in and it should carry the sound over too, no need for a second audio input, but you may have to configure your laptop and TV to enable the sound via HDMI.

 

Okay, I have the download link and instructions, I'll PM them to you very shortly.

oo okay...is the enabling ofsound a long process..because i could gt the hdmi and then maybe ask for help or you could tell me now if it not too long to say?I have a flat screen tv so i assume it has a hdmi cable...but it is not hd? is that completely irrelevant?...lol

It must be a HDMI enabled TV, if it is it will have "HD Ready" written somewhere on the front of the TV itself, if you see a sticker with it on or anything like that, then it should work just fine.

 

SOME TV's don't need any more setup than just plugging in the cable, Samsung & Sony TV's are pretty good for "self setup", they detect what is plugged into them, and adjust settings automatically. So you may get lucky! ;)
