Hi there,

My Problem: I uninstalled the Intel graphic media accelerator Mobile Driver from my computer, by accident.

I have tried looking for it on google but there are so many different ones that I'm not sure which one is right (many different chipsets)

Any help you can provide is appreciated!!

Thank you,

Hello andrewclone...

Have you tried the Acer website? Without knowing the actual model number of your netbook, I can only get you as close as the driver download page. Select the appropriate information for your netbook, then download the chipset and the VGA drivers. Install them one at a time starting with the chipset drivers...reboot between installations.

yeah I have been but im not sure of the model number. don't know where to find it. There are many different model numbers on the website like AO571h.

what if I go to device manager and uninstall

video controller
Video controller (vga compatible)

from "other devices"

would they reinstall on startup?

I've narrowed my search to 2 models because they don't have bluetooth(neither do I)

But why do I have to dl the chipset?

If I download and install wrong drivers will it harm my computer?
