take it back to where you bought it. Why mess with something that is not working from the start? You will probably just have head-aches with it forever....it is probably a lemon. Ask them to replace the notebook and also the OS to windows 7

i agree with xpuser4real.
however if you think it maybe your fault or you know you have done something to change the settings, you could run the acer recovery.
accessed by pressing Alt +F10 at Startup
then run the recovery, however this will delete all files, settings and programs on the drive and revert to the exact condition of the day you bought it.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Why mess with something that is not working 'right' from the start?
That terminology means that it has not worked properly in the 1st few months LOL

If you can’t find the right acer drivers manually, try this site:
http://www.best-driver-updater.com/...
There is a program I use which will find drivers for just about all hardware devices. The best part is it takes a snapshot of your system specifications and matches the right driver to go with it
You can also search by the following link:
