How to update Acer drivers on Windows 11?
To make the hardware device work with your computer properly, a specific driver is required. However, each driver is pre-built on your system, and they always need updates to fix some known bugs such as game crashes, black screens, and stuttering audio. If you’re using an Acer device, please follow this guide to update the Acer drivers properly. We will show you three ways to do so.
- Manually update drivers through Device Manager
- Manually download drivers from Acer Support
- Automatically update Acer drivers
Before we go any further, please restart your Acer computer to flush the buffer and close any background apps. Then, proceed to update your drivers. Please note that all the screenshots in this guide are taken on Windows 11, but the instructions also work on Windows 10.
The first tool we recommend would be Device Manager. It allows users to view and control the hardware attached to the computer, as well as make changes to the device drivers, though it may take some time to complete.
To update your Acer drivers in Device Manager, here’s what you can do:
- On your keyboard, press the Windows key and X at the same time, select Device Manager.
- Double-click to expand each category to locate the device you would like to update. Then right-click the device and select Update driver. (Let’s take the graphics driver for example here, you can double-click the category Display adapters, and then right-click your graphics device and select Update driver.)
- Then click Search automatically for updated driver software.
- Wait for Windows to find the latest driver available for you.
- When the driver update is done, restart your computer for the change to take effect.
- Then check and see if the problem is fixed.
Alternatively, you can download and install drivers from the Acer Support site. To do this, you’ll have to manually search for your product model and find the drivers corresponding to your device. This may also take some time to find the driver you’d like to install. Here’s what you can do:
- Navigate to the Acer Drivers and Manuals page.
- Use the Serial Number or Product Model to identify your Acer device.
- Scroll down to view the Drivers tab.
- Select your Operating System.
- Locate the driver and click the download link. When prompted, click the Save button and choose the location where to save the file.
- Once complete, double-click to view the files. Then, locate and double-click the Setup application to install the driver.
- Click Yes and follow the provided instructions to proceed.
