    How do I go back to an old driver?

    I recently went to the Acer website and updated my drivers to the most current. However, the sound sounds funky. Also, it takes longer for my Ethernet to connect since I updated my LAN driver.

    The Realtek driver for the sound doesn't give me an option to roll back to the previous driver. I am not sure about the LAN driver.

    So, how do I go back to my previous driver?

    Find and download older drivers. (That may be the tricky part.)

    Uninstall the current ones. (In case the older drivers refuse to install over newer ones.)

    Install the old drivers.


    (Windows Update tends to automatically update Realtek drivers, by the way.)
