Acer V3 771- Windows 7.
Hi, I'm new to this forum and welcome any feedback. Last week I was attempting to connect my Samsung Galaxy S4 to my acer laptop and couldn't figure why Device Stage wasn't opening (this is not my main problem, please read on)
I went into device manager and found that the drivers for USB controller and Ethernet controller were not installed. I clicked to fix online but was not able to fix. Windows troubleshooter advised to insert system disc that came with the computer, I did this then had to go to work.
When I came back my system had completely reformatted, a total reload of windows 7
Now in device manager none of the device controllers are working, Ethernet, network, PCI, PCI simple comms, SM Bus, USB Seriel Bus, all have the yellow exclamation mark.
I tried to fix by going online but can't connect to my internet as I get an Error 651 message.
It's a complete mess.
As you can tell I'm not at all tech savvy. Any help, if just guidance to get me online, would be be gratefully received.
