In the early past, I had a Windows 10 installation on my computer. I've deleted it and installed Windows 7 Enterprise. After that, I had NO drivers in my computer at all (it couldn't even read my USB flash drive). I installed the drivers from the Acer website http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers. Some of them didn't work as they are all for Windows 10. But I figured out how to install most of them.
In my Windows 10 installation, I could control my fans no problem. But now in my Windows 7 installation, I cannot do that. It is definitely not a problem in BIOS. In my "Device Manager" menu, I have all drivers installed except one. It is between "Other devices" and it is called "Unknown device". It has this "ACPI\MSFT0101" ID. I found, that it is the ACPI driver and it's also used to control my fan speed. I've also found that the ACPI driver is included in the "Intel IO driver". The "Intel IO driver" is included in the list of drivers on the Acer website, but I cannot install it because all the drivers on the Acer website are for Windows 10. Can anyone help with this driver?

1| The unit looks like it came with Windows 10 bundled, to be brutally honest with you you've created the problem by migrating to Windows 7. You could solve this by downloading drivers on third party sites but this just adds risk for fear of having malware laced drivers downloaded onto your system. Likewise, I could ask you to install the drivers in an elevated command;
Right click installer>Run as administrator but that won't help you by much since the drivers aren't meant for Windows 7.

2| You should also know that Intel has officially stated that post Skylake any system's coming forth will only be capable of running on Windows 10 and not below that OS.

3| I wonder why you migrated to an older OS when the unit is advertised to optimally run on Windows 10...?

You are totally right. All the problems came after I installed Windows 7 and I thought, that Win 7 will run faster, but I was wrong. Everything runs better with Windows 10 on this computer. I installed Win 10 again and all problems are solved with a program called Notebook FanControl.

Thank you

I use notebook fancontrol on my acer aspire v5.
There is a config for ACER ASPIRE V5 572G, and I set it be ENABLED and 100%.
Keeps my temps around 50-60.

Really it works well for this superhot laptop. However, it needs a secondary cooling pad as well.

Always remember, if you intend to just use your fan like fuel and cool your PC/laptop down, BUY A BACKUP FAN so when it dies you can just swap over the brand new one. For a laptop this means buy a NEW heatsink/fan apparatus.
