I’m sorry but I think you misunderstood it. When you install an operating system on your computer like Microsoft Windows, it doesn’t install all the drivers for all devices it finds on the motherboard. It will only install the basic drivers to make the computer work and so you can use it. The rest of the devices attached or connected to your motherboard have to be installed manually.

Normally, when you buy a laptop, it comes with a setup CD and it contains the drivers for the devices connected to your motherboard. If you still have it, use it to install the drivers for a specific device. In case you no longer have it or the laptop doesn’t come with drivers CD, you can visit your laptop manufacturer’s website to download the drivers.

Here, you will need your laptop’s model number or service tag number to download the drivers. Different laptop models come with their specific compatible drivers. For Acer laptops, go to Acer Drivers and Manuals. Enter the Product Model or Serial Number on the page.

An example of a Product Model is “Aspire 5738”, my sister’s laptop model. You can find this at the back of your Acer laptop. After entering the information, you will be directed to your laptop model’s download page. Here, download and install all the drivers required for your laptop. Also, before downloading, make sure to select the correct operating system. Select the operating system you are currently using on your laptop.
