I bought an Acer Aspire notebook with Vista several years ago. It's great laptop and has served me well since I have been running it. The thing is, since Vista was crap back then, I downgraded to XP Professional. Recently, I upgraded to Windows 7 and it seems to be running pretty good, except for a couple things... Namely, when I tried to run dual monitors, Windows setup couldn't do it. I then discovered that Acer hasn't released drivers for this machine for Windows 7.
My questions is: has anyone encountered this and found a work around? I tried loading the Vista drivers but Windows 7 said no can do. Are there anyways to finagle my OS into letting me install other than specified drivers? Basically, all I want is to be able to run dual monitors, so a fix for this would be great.
Thanks in advance.
NOTE: I just tried this procedure to no avail: Windows 7 on Acer Laptop
Does anyone know the best way to find out exactly what video card hardware I have? System in Control Panel is too vague, and so is DxDiag (DirectX tool). I need this info for Nvidia driver retrieval...
Here are DxDiag results:
