    Default Cannot install drivers. No Intel(R) Adapters are present in this computer.

    Hi everyone, thank you for reading this.
    Sorry if there's a similar post, but I've spent hours digging through the internet.

    I have a problem with my new laptop (Acer Aspire 5750).
    It came with lots of useless things on it, so I decided to fully format it and install a new clean copy of the OS.
    I installed Windows 7 32 bit, and everything was fine until I tried to connect to internet. (I only have wireless)

    I downloaded the correct drivers (with another computer), but when I try to install the PROWin32 one, it comes up with an error.
    In the Device Manager, there are no Network Adapters for some reason. I have no idea what's going on.
    I have done this so many times before. I even did it JUST NOW with another laptop and it works perfectly (I'm using it at the moment).

    Please guys, give me some tips on how to get the laptop to recognize its network adapter...
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, thanks, but where do I get it from?
    I only found one old version and it doesn't run on Windows 7.
    Could you post a link?

    Ok, I installed it, restarted Windows.
    Now when I press Fn+F3 (which is the WiFi and Bluetooth ON/OFF key), I get this:
    It seems like the wifi is disabled for some reason

    That looks like the card is not even there.
    Can you see any unknown devices in Device Manager?

    Yes, there are some unknown ones under "Other devices". There are NO network adapters under "Network adapters", but I know there should be.

    It worked fine before I reinstalled windows, so I don't know how the card could magically dissapear....

    That looks like you're missing chipset drivers.
    Install this and this and this one (for USB 3.0)

    BTW all drivers are available through Acer Download(choose notebook, aspire and scroll down to find your model)

    I installed all 3, restarted, but nothing has really changed. The USB controller (under Other devices) is not there anymore, but the other five still have a yellow !.
    Maybe I should install something for "Ethernet Controller" or "Network Controller"? I can't find them on Acer website.

    Just install every driver on Acer website apart from those you know are already installed properly. It will take less time that way.
