You can have Windows automatically download recommended drivers for your device through "Windows Update". Follow these simple steps: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/update-driver-hardware-isnt-working-properly#update-driver-hardware-isnt-working-properly=windows-7
Hope this helps!

Thanks but I just reloaded win7 from a retail disk and the Network Controller driver is not there so I can't go to the net right now.

i looked online but not understanding exactly which download link to choose? Also, I will need to get the Display and chipset drivers too. Well, once I get to the net I can do the updates for all the rest.

According to pcidatabase.com that is a Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller See this page. Download and install the Atheros LAN driver.
You will notice that there are mulitple drivers for certain devices base on the vendor. You can use the Hardware ID's in Device Manager and PCIdatabase.com to determine the vendor.
The video driver shown may have the chipset included. If not post back.
Note: These drivers are for 64bit.

Ok, thanks but first this is a 32-bit version of win7 on this system, should I still download those 64 bits drivers?
Posted 17 September 2014 - 10:14 AM
No they will not work. I will look for the 32bit drivers.

Thanks but for my learning experience, please me how/where you are able to find the 32 bit drivers as I will be studying for the A+ Comptia exams from next week and could use any and all help?

I see now why I could not find the 32 bit drivers on the Acer site, I see that only 64 bit drivers are available for this on there?
Please don't go to too much trouble trying to get the 32 bit drivers as I can easily reload win7 and choose the 64-bit version this time so I can use those 64bit drivers? Let me know?

I just did a Google search for Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller Windows 7 32 bit and found this.
If you want to search for the drivers, you will need to use the first line shown in Hardware ID'S of each device and then go to pcidatabase.com Put the vendor and dev ID in the search box. I usually just put in the Vendor ID. Go there and then do a search in the browser to find the device ID>
Edit: I believe you would be better off installing 64bit on the computer if you are having a hard time finding 32bit drivers.
