    sorry for any confusion on your part that I may have caused. Your specifc model of laptop is going to be different that the 5672 as listed in that sticky. Basically download all drivers and applications avalible for your specific model laptop (which would be the 5050 or 5051 series). That is what you need total ^_^

    EDIT - I just noticed that your drivers are not on the FTP for some reason. Try this link - http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/fo...m/us&siteid=7293&areaid=7&formid=3394#results

    By default the order in which you typically install drivers is the following

    Chipset
    Video
    Audio
    LAN
    dial up
    anything else after that is trivial.

    ^_^

    Hope this helps

    --ssx--

    !! There are NO driver for the notebook in the acer site !! (25.10.2006)

    Ok , these are NOT the official drivers, this was all search by me and tested by me. it should work until acer put the right ones on their site. its just a crappy patch.

    Some drivers are alike for all notebooks, like audio, touchpad CardRdr..., the rest was trial n error :\ and 2 f***** days searching in the internet.

    * CPU
    (AMD Turion&#8482; 64 Mobile Technology Driver for Windows XP 1.3.2.16 )

    http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/cont...mdcpusetup.exe


    * Chipset
    (https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...uestionID=1699)

    Dotnet (u need this to install the drivers): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/i...2fdotnetfx.exe
    IGP drivers (DONT INSTALL THE GRAPHIC DRIVERS!!,JUST THE CHIPSET) https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206..._enu_35774.exe


    * VGA
    (Omega Drivers)

    * Sound Drivers
    (Realtek HD Audio)

    ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/note....10.0.5273.zip
    or

    * TouchPad synaptics Drivers

    http://www.synaptics.com/support/drive.cfm


    * Lan
    (dont remenber here i got it from, so download it from here )

    http://www.shiba.orangesense.com/mis....0615.2006.zip


    * Wireless
    (i think the only one that works is the atheros version, but im gonna give you both)

    ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/note...v4.10.40.0.zip [!]
    ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/note...m_v4.2.2.7.zip

    try this link:

    http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3050_5050.html

    it is in german but the names of the dirvers is in english. Series 5050 and 3050 use one and the same drivers as it seems. and your one 5051 is just one mode of the 5050 series. So don't look for drivers secific to 5051. By the way what is you over-all satisfaction with this model? I read alot about it and I plan to buy it too. But I just want to know if there is something I should know before giving the money e.g.
    -heating
    -speed (compare it with something that you've had)
    -graphic
    -office applications
    -windows - does it hang up
    -design
    -where are the usb ports situated (from the pictures that i found one is in front, one-on the left side and where is the third one?)
    -what is the model of the dvd-drive - manufacturer and version slave/master
    -how many ide-controllers are in there?
    -posibilities for update
    - (edit)which wireless chip do you have on the mainboard: atheros or broadcom (edit)


    i'm waiting for your reply,

    cheers, jason
