    Thought it could be a new thread here to see what's working on an Acer 4810T with the dedicated Acer Applications & Drivers from The New TIMELINE X series, and since Acer does not update the 4810T, since the new TimelineX is out by now!

    So far i have tested and are working stable are from the 3811T & 3820T, 4820T, 5820T series & some Travelmate series for Win 7 x64:

    -Optical drive PM
    working good ones for the Optical drive PM v1.01.3006 & v1.01.3007 are from the 4820TZG series & 5820TZG

    -LaunchManager Dritek LaunchManager Application: v6.1.7600.16385
    -LaunchManager Acer Launch Manager Application v3.0.05 (Looks a lot of issues during install)

    There's a working good one v3.0.03 existing from Acer Support Service and dedicated for the 4810T series (could be also the Aspire 4920G or so), for those lucky serviced like me that had it installed around early 2011.
    This v3.0.03 (Wistron) from Acer Support will allow the update to Launch Manager v3.0.07 (Inventec) from the 3811TZG series (but looks like this will not work directly from the v3.0.02 (Wistron) to v3.0.07 (Inventec)). Wistron & Inventec are the same settings.

    -PowerSmart Manager:
    -ePower Acer ePower Management application: v5.00.3003

    DVDRAM FIRMWARE: (unmodded) Optical Drive "GU10N" Only (2010/10/25)

    CAUTION please!
    Updating your Optical Drive "HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GU10N" might reset all your settings. Therefore you'll have to reinstall "Acer Launch Manager" v3.0.02 or v3.0.03 & verify the settings of your drive in the Device Manager and W.M.Player...

    Make sure the "Acer Optical Power Management" is working either by switching the graphics to battery.

    You can grab the last firmware at The rpc1.org under LG/HLDS/Goldstar: (Scroll the list to GU10N,) Driver is: MX05-01.

    This will download the GU10N_MX05-01.zip.
    Unzip the downloaded file, copy/move to the .exe only to C:\ and run as administrator the .exe.
    Rebooting will reinstall the Optical Drive Pilote, verify in the device manager all went fine, then manage your settings. Registry should be updated itself.

    NEWS...:

    APPS & DRIVERS FROM THE 3811TZG Series for THE 4810TZG Series...

    WORKING:
    1) After a while i owned my new machine, it happens i tested some ACER VGA ATI Graphics from the Acer Aspire Timeline 3811TZG series listed on their site.

    As the Specs & Size are exactly the same as the 4810TZG, i did install the x64 - VGA ATI Pilote v8.653.2.

    Everything went fine even after multiple reboots and updated the WEI score. The switchable graphics works as usual with the Intel GMA Mobile Driver...but looks Acer stayed at version v8.15.10.1872 for most of the files for the Intel GMA part.

    As a reminder the last 4810TZG is the version of x64 VGA ATI Pilote v8.652.1

    TESTING ACTUALLY:

    -PowerSmart Manager Acer PowerSmart Manager Application v4.07.3010, WORKING FINE!

    Looks working fine, no issue...switchable graphics works as usual & Optical PM trigger normaly
    So far, no battery issue....

    -TouchPad Synaptics TouchPad Pilote v14.0.6...UPDATE WORKING FINE!

    NOT TESTED YET:

    -LaunchManager Acer Launch Manager Application v3.0.07 & v3.0.05 (Looks a lot of issue during install)

    4810TZG actual x64 Version is v3.0.02

    For Synaptics Driver just grab the latest 15X ones from HP.
    For Camera you have to find which device is in your system.

    I'll have a look at HP site....

    For the Acer 3811TZG Synaptics Driver, they do looks the same version as for the 4820T, and i did encountered some issue with the last one..

    My camera is an Acer Chicony one, and Acer newest drivers won't work properly.

    All new Synaptics Touchpad are made equal.
    Don't worry they all work.
    There is no difference.
    In fact you will find the 15.X driver more responsive and better I don't know why is Acer making us download the 14.x.

    What I don't understand:
    Why are options like
    - "disable touchpad if external pointing device is detected"
    - "right + left button clicked = middle click"
    not available?

    I have these options with the Dell customised Synaptics driver of my Vostro 1500, so this should be possible somehow.

    Yes you have to mod the installer .inf because the feature available is base off what the .inf defines.
    You need to find out which entry is modified.
    Anyway for Acer it is disabled because they felt it has a tp disable button and they don't expect lots of middle click users anyway.
