Acer Aspire 4740G Optimal Drivers

If your EFI/BIOS version < 1.05 please update the firmware to enable DEP.

  5. Nvidia High Definition Audio Driver (Included in the Display Driver)
  6. Realtek High Definition Audio Driver http://aspiregemstone.blogspot.com/2010/08/audio-driver-matching.html (Why this driver is the best? The MSI Gaming Notebook using this driver uses the same AL888 Realtek High Def chip, it has excellent driver customisation better than Acer Drivers)

No, Nvidia has left out the device inf of Acer Aspire 4740G's Graphics Adapter. To get support google Nvidia Driver Forums and post the device inf and Laptop Model for them to add the support back, I have done that but they don't seem to be responding.
