Re: how to install base system device driver

Any system that we ship with Windows 7 would have all drivers installed at factory as part of the load.


Drivers for the system are available on our site Driver Downloads link.

Re: how to install base system device driver

This doesnt answer the question. We install all the drivers from the support area but 2 drivers still missing and both apears as System Device Driver.

Re: how to install base system device driver

I can confirm that this is in fact the case.


I have the Acer Aspire E1-571G which had Windows 8 preloaded.


I formatted and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.


Downloaded all the drivers from the aces website for this OS and successfully installed all the drivers.


However, there are 2 drivers still missing (as indicated by hondasr).


Both these drivers are "Base System Device" (as indicated in the screen-shot below).




Please ACER SUPPORT; see if you can provide us with some insight as to solve this.

Re: how to install base system device driver (SOLVED) - Confirmed

I can confirm that this solution worked for me as well.


After reading thunreigu's post; I decided to give it a try.


I also figured out what I did wrong:

I extracted all the downloaded drivers to a folder and went to device manager whereby I "update device driver" and scan the folder (where all drivers are extracted to) for drivers.

This worked for all drivers except the last two (as mentioned in one of my previous posts).


I solved this by actually running the setup file for the following two drivers:

CardReader_Broadcom_15.0.7.2_W7x86x64 (think this solved the problem)

Chipset_Intel_9.3.0.1020_W7x86x64 (installed this just for incase)

everybody who has the base system device error

just install the driver for your cardreader it's simple

the problem of your base device is that it can't read xd and memorystick cards without the driver

so install it and everything is fine

no i'm not employed by acer just a geek Smiley Tongue


works on 7, 8, 8.1 and even beta 10 x86 and x64 (32 bits & 64 bits)
