    Video Controller (VGA)
    Hi,


    I recently started to receiving message when I start my computer indicating I need to install Video Controller and VGA. I don't have the CD roms for this so I am not sure what to do.

    Also, my computer has started to run slightly slower due to this issue.

    My computer is an Acer 5601AWLMi

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks,

    goto this website and put the exact model details in
    http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

    you should be able to getthe drivers you need

    have a look in device manager and see if you have any ?
    control panel
    system
    hardware tab
    device manager

    does the screen look OK or has that changed at all

    Hi,

    I've checked Device Manager and the 2 things needed appear in OTHER DEVICE section with question marks next to Video Controller and Video Controller (VGA Compatible).

    I've checked the link but am having trouble and installing these drivers. Downloading the file is fine. It is a zip for an has multiple applications in them? Shouldnt they be install as one file rather than multiple files?

    you may need to point the device at the unzipped package

    so goto device manager
    uninstall the devices
    then reboot
    now when it identifies the new hardware and asks for the driver - point to the driver pack you have unzipped

    Thanks for your help. It seems to have fixed it as I didn't not get the top ups. The font and my screen to have changed slightly though but I can cope. Many Thanks again.

    the font and screen changing, show you are using the drvier rather than VGA
    you can change that in
    display
    settings
