Thought that I installed the correct chipset for the ACER mentioned in the subject line. After installing the chipset the keyboard and mouse did not work.




Using Windows XP home edition.

I downloaded the chipset from the ACER web page.

Since I reinstalled Windows the mouse and keyboard are working fine.

Here is what has that question mark in the device manager.

Network Controller
Other PCI bridge devices
PCI Device
SM Bus Controller
Unknown Device
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

I have the correct drivers for the Video Controller and the Audio. I was told to install the chipset first before any of the drivers.

The first picture is the ACER Driver web page address.

I have no idea why 2 of the three photos uploaded sideways.

You might need to install SP3 then the drivers . . you do want to install the chipset drive first, then the others in any order.

If this is a notebook, they may have a Notebook Management driver . . Install that one first, then chipset

The only thing left is something called a network controller. Is this something important?

Network Controller is the wired internet (Ethernet) connector. Yes, do install it. And take another look at the Device Manager. Are there any more yellow flags? Please report.

No that is the only one. Any way to find the wired Internet driver?

If this were not important I would not be asking.
