Have you tried obtaining the drivers from the device manufacturers themselves?

Okay well the site that was linked to by Alvin is the answer.

You need the Chipset Driver for the SM Controller.

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...er/ChipSet.zip

Which Netowrk card do you have? Is it the Atheros, Broadcom, or Intel?

Intel:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...less_Intel.zip

Broadcom:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...s_Broadcom.zip

Atheros:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...ss_Atheros.zip

Which ever netowrk card you have use those drivers.

For sound try the drivers from their site:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...iver/Audio.zip

See if those work.

For the Webcam which one do you have? It shows 3 different ones available. Bison, Chicony AP, Chicony Driver. Which i dont get why you have 2 different ones for Chicony...

But Bison:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...4_XPx32x64.zip

Chicony AP:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...4_XPx32x64.zip

Chicony driver:
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...0_XPx32x64.zip

That will sort out the missign drivers you ahve right now. Use that sound driver and let us know if the sound gets sorted.

But they were both located under the driver section. Not one under the software section where it should be. So that means that either Acer messed up and put software in the driver section or there is a difference between them and they are 2 different drivers.
