    I've got an Acer 5315 Laptop. Pretty much all the drivers stayed installed during the upgrade from vista.. with the exception of my ALPS touchpad. So i can't use the touchpad for scrolling... luckily it has a scroll key in between the mouse buttons. Nonetheless, this is a minor irritation. I tried running the setup file from Acer in compatability mode, to no avail. Also, W7 thinks that it's a PS/2 mouse, and won't let me update the driver. Any Ideas??

    Hello, You may have already tried this,but I burned a cd of the backup apps that are installed on the laptop. I then had to use the driver from the backup disc to be able to use scrolling on the touch pad. It works now. I have always had the cursor to jump or not respond sometimes on this computer. It is only 3 weeks old. It came with Vista Home Premium,but I am now using Windows 7 build 7057 and the scrolling works,but it still doesn't work like it should. Maybe it's an Acer anomaly,who knows? Anyway, Good Luck! :)

    Yes,I think Acer is not that good. I thought Acer made better computers,but I guess not. I won't buy another one. I think I will leave PC's and move to Mac. I have an old iMac and I like it. Now if could figure out how to use the OS I might like it more.
