    Since you are cleaning up you may as well delete (or update) this sticky too:

    ACER Notebook Models, Support Numbers, BIOS, User Manuals and Drivers Links

    Thread has been closed since 2007. Most telephone numbers etc. don't work anymore in the countries listed.

    I wouldn't use my Driver Comparison thread anymore - it's kind of ANCIENT.
    Might do a newer comparison in the future, provided I can guarantee that I'll be able to restore from backup.

    Still, what a great idea to get this up. Kudos!

    When/if you have a new one I'll include it into the sticky to replace the current one. Yeah the drivers used in it are ancient now..

    By the way guys can you post some link to XP drivers to include in the sticky? Every day someone ask for XP drivers..

    Nice work ATG.

    Just from the display point of view, you can add an index table on the top, and then link the rest of the stuff below....like a table of contents or something.

    I'll do that when the post become longer, for now with only a few links it's easy for viewing. Thanks for the tip though I'll have it in mind.

    XP drivers will be added to my GFX Drivers link eventually.
    If people are so insistent on running an eight-year-old operating system on hardware designed for Vista, they can find 'em themselves.

    Yeah but people will continue asking anyway so it will be cool if we have a links with XP drivers for the most popular models like 6920/30(G) or 5930(G).

    Sticky Update: I added the disclaimer from the Service Manuals so if you see people asking for it point them to the sticky to read the disclaimer.
