I upgraded to Windows 8 and did a System Refresh because of problems accessing the internet. The internet access problem was fixed, but now I have a status message in the Devices listing telling me the Base System Driver is missing. This appears twice under Other Devices. If I click on update driver, it tells me it cannot find one.
What is going on? How can I reload basic Acer system items. The documentation refers to going in Start/Acer, etc. However in Windows 8, there is no Start button and Acer software does not appear on the new Start screen.
In the System Refresh process, it created a document on the desktop called "Removed Apps". In it it lists many Acer programs and other drivers belonging to the system. I do not have a recovery disk, so how can I restore all these items?
