    Hi,

    Not sure where I should post this. I have a newly-assembled PC and when I was checking Device Manager, under Computer I found "ACPI x64-based PC". I checked its driver and it has a driver from 2006, which seems old. What is the "ACPI x64-based PC" device? I searched around for it and for possible drivers, but didn't really get an answer.

    Thanks for the answer.

    I tried both the programmes you mentioned, and the Driverpack Solutions was free, so it let me update drivers. It found that I needed updates to among others my x64 and x86 chipsets, audio and jmicron JMB36x controller, all of which I had installed yesterday from the CD that came with my motherboard, so it seemed a bit weird that they should be outdated.

    Anyway, I re-checked Device Manager, but the driver for the ACPI x64-based PC is still unchanged.

    Edit: By the way, after it had finished updating, Driverpack Solutions said that all my drivers are up to date.

    Thanks. I tried it now, but what was written for the Hardware Ids was in a different format than what you describe. There were no VEN_ or DEV_. It was only "acpiapic". The vendor list tells me that that means it's a device made by VIA Technologies, but still not which one.

    By the way, there is no yellow triangle beside this device in my Device Manager. I am just generally wondering, since the driver date is old.

    Can you post a screen shot (when the DEV_ID is shown)?

    Also: Is it an OEM system (DELL, HP, ASUS, etc...)?

    As in whether the OS came with the hardware? Then no.

    Thanks. I installed everything from the CD that came with my MOBO though, and it looks like my drivers are pretty much on par with the ones listed on the page you linked. For the devices I could identify, at least.

    However, I still don't know what the ACPI x64-based PC device is, so I don't know which driver I should download for it, if any. My Device Manager says that the driver version is 6.1.7600.16385, and when I search the web for this, I find that the Windows 7 RTM build has the exact same number, but Win7 was released in 2009 not 2006, so I thought it couldn't be that..?
