I bought the aspire V5-573PG-9610 last week and tried installing Windows 8.1 (it comes with Windows 8). Getting 8.1 into the store, etc., was a major ordeal. When I got it into the store, the 8.1 upload always failed. From reading online, I learned I had to uninstall the intel drivers before 8.1 could load. Finally got it loaded, and then started to reinstall the intel drivers, and update all the other drivers. But then the keyboard stopped communicating with the computer and only the touchscreen worked. I used the "chat" discussion from Acer seeking help, and in the end the technician advised that I just reinstall windows 8 because he thought some other driver had been corrupted through the upgrade. (Please know I don't understand what I am actually talking about). So I am back to windows 8. Should I hold off a month, hope for upgrades to all the drivers, and then try reinstalling? Or, does anyone have tips on how to do this now? Thanks in advance for the advice.
