Default Acer Aspire one 1786 drivers - 04-09-2009, 12:56 AM

As the title suggests I'm looking for a place to DL the drivers to reboot the above named netbook. I have already wiped and reloaded Windows XP but I need all the system, wireless and webcam drivers to complete this installation. The factory one got corrupted by a really nasty virus from limewire. Any and all help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance for the very off topic post and your helpful responses.

~~NOTE~~ The acer site offered no help in this matter at all. since i lost all the recovery i need actual drivers to dl and transfer to the machine.

Thanks LGsilva for the link. I'll try those and perhaps find the rest somewhere else. a few of those who posted there complained of the drivers not working as they should. I think if I can get the LAN driver working on it, i can download the rest directly to it and get windows updates.

Thanks , Dr Some-what Evil

~~NOTE~~

I posted too soon. the files were removed from the download location. :cry:

Oh well .... I'll keep searching :|

I finally found the drivers I needed but in a round about way. I googled for a Acer FTP site. That took me to the official Acer FTP site where I eventually found all the drivers for the netbook. I'll post a link just in case there are others who are looking for drivers for anything else made by Acer.

Thanks to LGSilvia who without his post I never would of though of looking for it the way i did.
