Hi, I have Acer Nitro 17(i7 13700hx, nvidia 4060) and I have some questions about the drivers. After installing and updating Windows 11, almost all the drivers have the same version as those from Acer's website, and some have a newer version (I think only the dGPU driver is older).
My question is do I have to re-install all the drivers from the Acer site? Also, for the driver installation, does only the setup script (Setup_Driver.cmd) need to be run?
Thanks!

    If Device Manager shows no red or yellow warnings upon opening —- and if no apparent problems with running Win11 —- then you should not try to install or re-install any of the Acer drivers.

    That is normal, Windows11 will install the latest most compatible drivers for your system, sometimes these are custom MS drivers sometimes drivers directly from device vendors like Intel but all of them are supported by Acer.
