Cloyce - Latest answer on Jan 4, 2013 06:59PM
I just finished a complete reistallation of windows vista on my Acer Aspire 5100 and under device manager it says I am missing the PCI Flash Memory Driver. I tried to automatically update it and manually find one with no luck. Acer has to have better support for thier products someday. Please help me?

The answer to this issue is the card reader driver. I found it by going to then enter your Acer model name eg: aspire > model # eg: 5610> then make sure you enter the proper OS in the dropdown. you will also find most other drivers there as well and as of 7-17-09 its free. I attatched the link So Let me know if this helps.
Good luck!

Usually the Tools and the Utilities CD should be delivered with your notebook.
On this CD you will find all necessary drivers for Windows Vista.
If you install the drivers so you have to do it in the right order.
Very important is the installation of the chipset utility. This must be done at first.
Additionally you need the cardbus driver for your PCMCIA CardBus controller.
Check it. I wound suggest you try some drivers like the chipset one to start with realtek lan drivers

I solved the issue by installing card related driver. I was having a USB problem. I had thought that would have solved it. But it did not.

As soon as I plug my USB to Aspire 5100 screen keyboard mouse everything gets stuck/frozen.

But this driver did not solve it

Good luck to you

And to me :)

Open device manager and double click on the first pci flash memory and click on driver and then click on update driver and click on search online for it. I had the same problem and it found the drivers and installed automatically.

Go to the above link then select; Notebook > Aspire > 5100 > XP, Vista.
Below these boxes are some drop down menus, on the last option "Latest" is selected, change this to "All"
From there it is the "ENE Card Bus Driver"
