Hi Anyone Reading this

Does Anyone know if you can upgrade the Acer Aspire 4810T to Windows 8 and if you the standard windows drivers will work or if any of the windows 7 drivers will work as i have lost the serial code and disc for my installation of windows 7 that is currently on the system and want to upgrade to windows 8,

Also here the Specs and the Acer Drivers page

Drivers - http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers


Thanks In Advance

Yours

OSes will run basic systems, and I'm sure that your Acer can run Win8 and 8.1 since it ran Win7. If your laptop does not have an optical drive, download here: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Win...

AS for the drivers, I'm not sure, but if you're unsure or encounter problems, just get drivers off of the Internet.

Looks like Win8 Realtek driver versions are the same as Win7 versions, assuming that you are looking for the audio driver for the audio chip.

Look here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?...

As for those Acer stuff, I looked at Acer's official website for driver support and your laptop has no options for Win8 drivers.
Look here: http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

Given that there is a lot of uncertainty over the compatibility of old drivers in Win8, I'd dissuade you with going ahead with your plan to avoid wasting cash on potentially botched upgrade.
