The Acer Nitro 5 is among the most popular mid-range gaming laptops out there. Alike other laptops, Acer Nitro 5 comes with some pre-loaded drivers that the system relies on. When they are outdated, missing or corrupt, your Acer Nitro 5 would run into issues such as crashes and lags. So, let’s take a look at how to update drivers on your Acer Nitro 5 device.

  1. Automatically update drivers for Acer Nitro 5
  2. Manually download drivers from Acer Support

Before we proceed any further, please restart your computer and make sure that no other apps interfering with your system. Also, note that the first tip below is the most commonly used method. Let’s get it started.

1. Automatically update drivers for Acer Nitro 5

Our first recommendation is Device Manager. In addition to viewing and controlling the hardware, it lets users make changes to the device drivers, though it can take a while.

Here’s how to update your Acer Nitro 5 drivers in Device Manager:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and X at the same time, select Device Manager.
  2. 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.)
  3. Then click Search automatically for updated driver software.
  4. Wait for Windows to find the latest driver available for you.
  5. When the driver update is done, restart your computer for the change to take effect.
  6. Then check and see if the problem is fixed.

Sometimes Windows may tell you that “the best drivers for your device are already installed”. However, it’s not always accurate since Microsoft doesn’t have access to all the newly released drivers for your devices.

Therefore, if Device Manager doesn’t find you the latest Acer Nitro 5 drivers, we recommend using Driver Techie to scan and repair outdated, corrupt, or missing drivers. It works in most cases where you have a driver-related issue. You can download Driver Techie by Clicking Here or following the guide below.
