Hello! I have an Acer Aspire 8735g and its missing the fingerprint drivers, I tried searching from everywhere. I remember they had multiple drivers for this laptop but now there was just 1. Also the media toch thing where you can control the volume kinda doesnt work, the other buttons work but when i try adjusting the volume it just adjusts randomly. I would love to have a restore disk for this one, but I lost mine and the recovery partition is gone. Maybe anyone can upload theirs, so I could burn it to an CD, I dont think Acer has any cause the laptop is almost 14 years old.
Your choice. You can continue to try about 8 more driver freeware tools. Just google search ‘best driver tools’. They each work a bit differently and one may find the right driver. Or you can install Windows 10 by making an USB installation stick by using Microsoft's USB media creation tool at this link. No 100% guarantees any of the choices will work on this old laptop but Win10 probably has the best chance.

Download and install iobit's Driver Booster freeware to see if it can detect the hardware and find the proper drivers on line.

What do you mean? Microsoft no longer releases Win7 updates. It's probably just re-directing you to 3rd-party driver tools like the recommended DriverBooster at iobit.com. There are other driver tool freeware but iobit's is one of the best. Just go to this link and download it directly from the iobit source https://www.iobit.com/en/index.php?s
It had some drivers, but this should be the official one. Anyways I will go try that 3rd party driver updater. The Windows Update fingerprint driver looks like some malware. Cause it shouldn't direct you to a screenshot of 2 porno websites
Edit: So the driver updater downloads the same [content removed] and my volume control thing still doesn't work properly.

What Windows Update? Where are you getting this so-called Windows Update from?
What do you mean? Windows Update has drivers too.
What website are you getting Windows Update from?
When I got the fingerprint driver from Windows Update the fingerprint prefences direct me to a screenshot in Google Chrome what is displaying 2 porno links.
»»When I got the fingerprint driver from Windows Update »>
Show me the link to Windows Update
What do you mean?
I got the driver from Windows Update, the application that comes with Windows. When I got the driver, I went to change fingerprint settings, it opens a tinyurl link and directs me to a screenshot with 2 links.

If you're trying to update Win7, Microsoft no longer supports Win7 or its updates. That app is no longer leading you to an official Microsoft repository.
It never was. That driver was from Acer. The Driver Booster donloads the exact same driver. BTW You can still update Windows 7 to the latest version if you haven't.
