Hello Acer users,
my mother has an Acer Aspire 5100 and is happy with it so far. I installed an SSD disk drive and Windows 8.1 64-bit to it (fresh). Now she is very happy as the machine is very fast. Allthough there are new problems that came with the installation and I'm not happy with them. They are the following (all driver related issues I guess, no drivers in Windows update or on Acer site):
1 - Memory card reader is not functioning at all and does not show up in explorer. Device manager shows 3x problem devices wich are all together the memory card reader. Wich brand is this?
2 - WIFI is not working (says network adapter), have not yet tried to download and install drivers from the Atheros website, will try this next time I visit her. Device manager shows 1x problem device wich I guess is the WIFI because the machine can access internet by the wired adapter.
3 - Display is set fixed (can not be changed) to a resolution of 1024x768 and it can do better, but can not be changed. Downloaded and installed Catalys control center, but this has changed very much and I can not see any place to change resolution from there. Only multiple displays etc.
4 - Display adapter shows in device manager to be 200M and it should be Ati Radeon Xpress 1100?
But other than these problems, Windows 8.1 64-bit is running nice and specially with the SSD being very fast. And can recommend to all of you
Nice if you can assist me on this matter. I guess Acer can not make drivers before they get the manufacturers driver.
