How to Find and Install Acer Drivers and Driver Updates
If your Acer hardware isn't working properly, there is a good chance you need to update your Acer driver(s). This quick guide will teach you how to download Acer drivers for desktops, laptops, printers, mouse devices, and other Acer hardware.
How do I Know if this is a Problem with My Acer Drivers?
If you're reading this page, there's a good chance you already know your problem is a driver problem.
But you may still need to check to make sure. In this case, simply find your Device Manager. Usually you can find it in the Control Panel; you may or may not have to click on "System" and then click the "Hardware" tab. Device Manager may also simply be listed in Control Panel, depending on your version of Windows.
From here, you can check your hardware devices. If you see a question mark, exclamation point, or yellow triangle next to any device name, it is likely you have a driver problem.
Since a driver is a small program that lets your hardware device talk to the rest of your computer, it is essential you have the right one. Otherwise, your hardware could become useless.
To update and/or install this software, you will need to go to the manufacturer's website. Please do not go to a "free downloads" website to download your drivers. You never know what you are downloading (possibly spyware!). Always go to the manufacturer's website, which will also let you download drivers and driver updates free.
How to Navigate the Acer Website
Go to www.acer.com. It will ask you to select your geographical location.
Click on the button next to your country and then click the "Go" button at the bottom of the page. You will then be taken to the appropriate page for your location (it may not have the same images as below, but should have the same navigation menu at the top of the page). Click on the "Service and Support" link.
The Support page should look something like the below page. Click the "Driver Download" link located on the left side of the page.
This will take you to a new page where you can select your hardware's product line. Once you have selected this, a second menu will pop up and ask you to select the "product family" of your device.
For our example, we selected "Notebook." If your Acer hardware is running on a Desktop, then select that instead.
You will then see another menu that will let you pick the type of notebook, desktop, etc. you are running. We picked an Aspire notebook for the example below.
You will then be asked for your product model. If you're using a laptop, you can usually find this model number on the underside of the laptop. Our example is for an Aspire 5930:
After this, the website will show you all the drivers you can download for your computer type. If you are looking for something specific like an audio, video, or Bluetooth driver, you can look for it via the "Category" section on the left.
Once you've found what you need, just click the orange download icon.
