Acer Aspire 4530 Drivers

Windows 7 works perfectly on Acer Aspire 4530.
There are no compatibility issues.

Acer Aspire 4530 BIOS --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Those who want Windows 7 OEM activated on Acer Aspire 4530 laptops go here
You will find the SLIC 2.1 BIOS Files there just flash using the flashing utilities provided by Acer and activate.

There are 3 Version 1.3333, 1.3334 and 1.3334 with some updated modules from 1.3336
(Because there is a booting issue with 1.3336 BIOS)
The ones with New VGA BIOS is modified with a updated VGA BIOS Module taken from a Emachine Laptop also equipped with Nvidia 9100M G Graphics. So take your Pick.
My personal recommendation is Z05_3334 with new VGA BIOS Module.
