While Asus, HP, and MSI have all done a pretty decent job of posting Windows drivers for their computers online, Acer has yet to make the Windows drivers for the Aspire One mini-notebook available. You can find a security patch for Windows XP, a disk formatter, and “eNet management” software at Acer’s support site, but no audio, LAN, WLAN, chipset, or card reader or graphics drivers.

Fortunately AspireOneUser has stepped up and uploaded the drivers you’ll need to install Windows XP or Vista on an Acer Aspire One laptop.

Acer is currently only selling the Aspire One with Linux preloaded. Eventually the company will make a Windows version available. At that point, I’m sure the company will make Windows drivers available. But if you happen to have a copy of Windows lying around that you want to install on a system today, these drivers could help.

  1. hello, i formated my mini Acer Aspire1 laptop, and i could not find some drivers for it. drivers like LAN, WLAN, chipset, or card reader or graphics drivers. please how can go about this?

  2. Hi! Nice article. I’m trying to install Windows 7 on Aspire One KAV60(B) aka AOD250. Problem is, when the setup comes to the stage where we select a hard drive to install windows to, there is no hard drive! I have to load drivers and I have no idea which driver to load. From the official Acer site, I found an Intel Sata driver with x86 and x64 sub-folder to load drivers for windows during setup: https://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/SATA/SATA_Intel_8.9.0.1023_W7x86_A.zip?acerid=633958535861124640&Step1=Netbook&Step2=Aspire%20One&Step3=AOD250&OS=702&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=PA_6

    But Windows cannot find a driver there and if I ask to list all, too many possible drivers show up. Can you help?
