I need drivers and utilities for Acer Aspire 6920 but their website sucks. I have Vista 64bit. I can't find bluetooth driver and utility for touchpad (volume and play/stop). Is there any way to find something?

Maybe we can walk through and find the drivers from the manufacturers...
1. Right Click on My Computer, Left click on Manage.
2.Click on Device Manager, you should notice on the right hand side iconswith a yellow symbol next to them, this shows the device is unknown, ordrivers are not installed.
3. Right click a device you are looking for, left click on properties.
4. Click on the Details tab on the top of the menu that popped up.
5. You should see some code in the middle that looks similar to this:
    "PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_169C&SUB SYS_308&"
The important peices are:
VEN_14E4    is    Vendor 14E4
DEV_169C    is    Device 169C    for     Vendor    14E4

You can take this information to the website http://www.pcidatabase.comand find the specific device information for the drivers, then go tothe manufacturer website and see if they make drivers for your OS, somehardware is OS specific and the manufacturer's do not have driversupport for all OS's.

*Once you are in the Vendor and are searching for the Device you can hold CTRL and press 'F'.
-This is the Find feature, type in the Device ID and it will find it much quicker, since some pages are quite long.

Hope this helps!

The primary difference between the 6920 and the 6920G is whether the unit has the Intel integrated graphics processor or the nVidia GeForce graphics. Otherwise they're the same unit so the drivers I linked should work.

Acer actually puts all the drivers for both units in the same folder, which is at the FTP link above, but they're clearly identified. Try the drivers I gave you and let us know and report back.

Thanks, souseran. I'll try that.
Maybe you know, there is HDMI output in the 6920 but no actual hdmi port, just empty spot (covered with plastic) . Can I upgrade the laptop so it will have HDMI...?

See the specs here:

http://us.acer.com/acer/productv.do?link=oln15e.redirect&changedAlts=&CRC=1511809838

According to the video section, the system should have "VGA port and HDMI" (High-Definition Multimedia Interface") with HDCP (high-bandwidth digital-content protection) support ports"

If yours doesn't you may want to contact Acer to inquire. Their contact information is here:
