Check Acer's website and look at the chipset drivers. Part of those should also be for the Disk Controller (particularly the ICH drivers):

try this to identify the devices :

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update, or drivereasy (free) :  www.drivereasy.com
it will list the drivers - you can google them, or let drivereasy do it

Actually in my experience using latest driver from Intel website for mass storage device always worked for me. Sure if you use Intel chip.

There were several chipset drivers, from which to choose, I had selected one prior to this tip, so I just continued to install each one until the correct one did the trick. Thanks for the help.
