    I saw on a NewEgg review someone got 64 bit drivers working for XP64 on their Acer Aspire 5100. I'm trying to do the same on a friends laptop and having difficulties. You guys are geniuses though, any help? I just need the wireless card driver and the ATI graphics, I'm not even sure what the graphics in this thing is.

    I got pretty much all the drivers installed except the wireless card, I'm still having trouble finding that one. Any ideas?

    I won't have the laptop in front of me again until later today, I'm not using Vista Joker, Vista ran horrible on his laptop even when he upgraded to 2GB of RAM. And the other drivers on Acer's website are for 32bit XP.

    Win 7 64bit drivers

    Okay so obviously you want to read the question and think before posting an answer. I know thats rude but true and degrades the website. Any how, the Aspire 5100 officially is not supposed to run windows 7. However, its easily done as long as your upgrading from Vista, because the OS is similiar. Just try opening up the panel in the back, get the model # and company (Realtek, Atheros, etc) and go to their support site and download. good luck :)
