Default Windows 7 on Acer Aspire One (AOA110)

Well, I just installed Windows 7 RTM on a friend's netbook. It runs pretty good, but sometimes touchpad stops working and Aero gets disabled by itself.
I didn't install drivers because device manager detected them out from the box, the only ones I installed were Intel Chipset driver and Intel VGA Driver, to see if this is the solution to the Aero thing.
I aparently updated Synaptics Driver, to check if this was the solution to the touchpad problem.
I haven't heard any news right now if the netbook was fixed, but in case it isn't, anyone got the same problem?

Try installing the drivers from Acers Europe Website. They are the most up to date Acer Drivers.

You could also look at trying to find your chipset and video card drivers from Intel's website.
