my HDD on my Aspire E5-521 died a few days ago, so i bought a new one and installed win 7 on it because i do not own (and completely despise) windows 8. well everything was going smooth until i realized acer doesn't give two [removed] about what i want and therefore doesn't provide the necessary drivers to fix my system ive poured over every forum regarding this issue but ive yet to find drivers that A:match the hardware profiles and B:find anyone who has linked the drivers that they used to fix their own system, i just keep seeing vague "i found the drivers thanks guys" posts that lead me to a maddening dead end.

please for the sake of my sanity can someone help?

which drivers are you missing?

LAN and audio can be downloaded form RealTek.com directly
Video drivers should be available on AMD.com

Once the LAN driver is installed try to update the rest of the drivers via the Device Manager.

i've tried downloading the realtek lan driver but unfortunately it doesnt seem to work, the amd drivers went on fine but everything else seems to not read the hardware at all
