Can someone help me with the video driver for the Acer Aspire 360 using Windows 7.

I recently upgraded my system and I am unable to find a suitable driver.

Thanks in advance.

From what I can see, apparently the key is the system chipset:

Aspire E360 Specifications

And it looks like others on the Nvidia boards have helped solved the mystery:

Hi Run5k

Nice to see you here. Is Acer Aspire 3620 having a Nvidia video card?

No, it doesn't.  My apologies... I focused on the fact that the author actually wrote "Acer Aspire 360" in the text of their original post.

normally Windows 7 should have the driver for older hardware - did you try windows update?

if you have unknown devices in device manager, you can use this precedure to identify them :

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

Hi,

The 3620 uses the Intel GMA 900 graphics processor inbuilt into the chipset. This doesn't support Aero Glass and probably isn't supported.

You may therefore find that there is no Windows 7 (or Vista) driver since the processor isn't good enough to support either.

Regards,


RobMobility.

I have tried all suggestions. None of them solves the problem. Are there any other suggestions. I would certainly appreciate them.

Thanks and best regards.

Nothing works. I believe there are no drivers for the video controller  Acer aspire 3620 using the Win 7 operating system.

If I can get a confirmation I will discontinue looking for this driver.

Thanks.

maybe your card is bad
you can test if it works if you boot from a live Knoppix cd -  and change resolutions :

Hi,

As per my post, Intel do not make a video driver for Windows 7 for that Video card.

You may be able to use the Vista driver in compatibility mode, however. Try this HP one:

No guarantees!

Regards,


RobMobility.,
