I recently installed Windows 8 to a flash drive and to my old Acer Aspire 3610. I know the OS is still in beta and that there are still many problems before the official release but I want to get this problem fixed so I can have my laptop work normally with no driver problems. Plus I downloaded Windows 8 because I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Anyways. The install went fine until I go to surf the internet. None of my wireless drivers work. I go to update my drivers seeing that they might be outdated but when I go to update the drivers say I up to date. None of the wireless drivers work for the internet and I can't get updates to the laptop because I need the internet. The same problem is happening to me with the sound drivers also. The sound is not coming up meaning I can't hear any sounds. The driver says it's up to date but the driver doesn't work.I did everything I could but the drivers don't seem to come up and work. I wonder if there is a way I can download the drivers from the internet from my desktop and install them onto my laptop. If I do and if I can how and where can I get the drivers from? This is a serous problem and I need your help. I took screenshot's of the problems to maybe make it clearer to what I am trying to say but this problem is bugging me since I can not hear any sounds or mostly do half the things with my laptop since I have no internet!

Do you have another computer? If so, log on to the manufacturers website and download the drivers and transfer it via a USB drive and install from there.

http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers. If it says you need XP to install it, put it under the XP compatibility mode.

It came with XP but I installed Windows 7 last year and Windows 8 yesterday. It originally came with XP

Ok, just install the drivers and get back to me.

The sound driver worked fine but the wireless driver isn't showing up after installed. It tells me to plug in a cable but I don't want that. I want wireless access
