Acer Bifrost A770 Card Installation Failure

PLAY-DOH

Hello,

 

I don't know if this is a common problem or just a personal experience for me and my Acer Bifrost A770 card, but I can't seem to install any driver update after 31.0.101.5194. I've been updating my card regularly using the drivers provided from Intel Arc Graphics Drivers page; however, every newer driver has failed to properly install and I always have to revert back to the one mentioned above, which installs fine. I've tried deleting/clearing older display profiles/files using the program that was suggested on here from a different post, update the driver using the Intel Driver and Support Assistant, etc; however, nothing seems to work. I always get error code 1. I don't know if it's an Acer issue, but the driver they provide on their support is extremely out of date. Wondering if this has come up as a known issue and/or has been resolved.

 

Thank you

Hello PLAY-DOH,

 

We appreciate your patience while you waited for our response.

 

Here's the next step that we're going to take to resolve the issue:

 

1. Download the driver version 31.0.101.5534.

2. After the download is complete, create a new folder on your computer to store the driver.

3. Move the downloaded graphics driver file into this new folder.

4. Right-click on the file, choose 'Show more options', and then select '7-zip'.

5. Click on 'Extract Here', wait for the extraction process to complete, and then close the window.

6. Open the Device Manager, locate the A750, and right-click on it.

7. Choose 'Properties', followed by 'Update Driver'.

8. Select 'Browse my computer for drivers' and navigate to the folder where you placed the driver.

9. Confirm your selection, click 'Next', and allow the installation to proceed to completion.

 

By the way, we have attached a screen recording demonstrating these steps to serve as your reference.

Hello Carmona, thank you for the quick response as well. I never tried this before; but unfortunately it yielded the same results. I tried it a few times using different driver installations with no luck. When I try to install, it almost instantly goes right to "Finalizing driver installation..". Not sure if that is useful information in any way. Seems like something may have changed after the 31.0.101.5194 driver back in February. But it may be something on my side since I can't seem to find anyone experiencing the same issue.

Hello PLAY-DOH,


To confirm, is the driver that you have tried to install version 31.0.101.5522? If not, please install it instead, and if the issue persists, follow the troubleshooting steps that we have previously provided.


And if yes, please generate an SSU report to help me further analyze important details on your system, such as the OS build number, complete model of your system, etc. To generate the SSU report, please refer to the article: How to Get the Intel® System Support Utility Logs on Windows. Please send us the generated SSU.txt file.

Hi Carmona,

 

Thank you for the response and suggestions. And my apologies for the late response. I did try driver 31.0.101.5522 and the latest 31.0.101.5534 driver that just came out. Unfortunately, I'm still experiencing the same issue. It almost instantly jumps to finalizing install after going the prompt buttons.

 

I attached the generated SSU file from running the Intel System Support Utility on my system.

 

Thank you again, I really appreciate the help. Have a great day as well!

Hello PLAY-DOH, 


Thank you so much for patiently waiting on our response.

 

For a possible solution, please try the following troubleshooting steps:.

 

  1. Uninstall the driver using the Display Driver Uninstaller. Instructions in this article: How to Use the Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) to Uninstall an Intel® Graphics Driver.
  2. Download the 31.0.101.5534. (instructions in this article, How to Get Zip File Version) of the Intel® Graphics Driver.
  3. Unzip the driver.
  4. Open Device Manager:
  • Right-click the Intel® ArcTM Graphics device from the Display Adapters section.From the drop-down menu, choose Update Driver.
    • Click Browse my computer for drivers.
    • Click Browse, search for, and select the unzipped folder of the driver. 
    • Once the driver is installed, restart the computer.

 

By the way, since the graphics driver is not a.zip file, an alternative method to compress files is to utilize the built-in compression functionality provided by Windows, commonly referred to as the 'Compressed (zipped) Folder' feature.


Furthermore, the guidance that you require can be found in Exit Code 1: There was a problem repairing your driver in the Intel® ArcTM Graphics article, which outlines the identical steps necessary for your query. You may also use a third-party application to zip the file, such as 7-Zip.

 

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Hi Carmona, thanks for the reply.

 

I can't seem to be able to find a zip copy of the lastest driver, which you mentioned that it doesn't have a zip form; however, when I go the the linked tutorials, they don't quite explain how to make a zip copy of the driver. It just points to a download page where the driver is still in the exe form. And of course compressing the exe file into a zip file will just yield a copy of the exe file inside of a zip folder.

 

I've also tried the DDU graphics removal tool suggestion recently, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any of the newer drivers install.

Hi Carmona,

 

OMG...it worked! Much kudos to you and the rest of the team. I had tried so many times to install each new driver as they came out to no avail. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time in helping me find a solution to the problem I was having. The video instructions really helped as well. I realized I didn't have 7-zip installed on my system. After installing it and following the steps, the driver installation went perfectly.

 

Thank you so much!
