I have an Acer Aspire S3 which came with Windows 7 but has been running Windows 8.1 without problems from its launch until about a week ago.
I was getting BSOD when trying to wake from sleep (DRIVE_POWER_STATE_FAILURE). Otherwise, it appeared to be running without issue.
After failing to diagnose a specific software issue, I reinstalled Windows. I'm now running Windows 8 and the BSOD issue is fixed. However, I'd like to run Windows 8.1
The Acer website tells me I can upgrade to 8.1, but has a warning message: "Intel® does not supply drivers for computers with 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM (i3, i5 or i7-2xxx), Pentium® dual-core G6 or G8, or Celeron® G4, G5 or 8 series processors."
I'd be very grateful if anyone could tell me whether this statement is correct, and whether it means I should avoid upgrading to Windows 8.1
Processor: Intel(R) Corei7_2637M
Graphics: Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
Thanks for joining the Intel communities.
I understand you are looking for Windows 8.1 drivers for your Acer computer.
Please bear in mind that Intel does not provide drivers for Third Party manufactures. Intel can help with generic drivers, graphics, LAN, wireless. You can check the link below for more information: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect
An example of generic drivers would be graphics driver, take a look at the link below and select your operating system version:
