Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
I mentioned the above in the middle of the ACER N2620g WIN 10 GSOD thread, but I thought I would also post it separately as people might want to try it out in other circumstances.

Had quite a few problems trying to get some of right drivers loaded because the ACER has an unusual setup and I could not get the ACER driver utilities to work in some areas.

Then I accidently came across a utility called "Driverpack-Online" (here) which claims to analyse your PC and download and install the relevant drivers - and it actually did do the business (much to my amazement)! The only thing it could not sort was, surprisingly, the Logitech wireless dongle for the mouse and keyboard (probably because they are exterior to the m/b configuration) but both are working anyway and so I'm not bothered for the moment.

The utility is "free" but be warned that it also installs things like OPERA and several other programmes & utilities that you might or might not want - as well as a whole load of hidden PUPs of potentially dubious nature, as I found out when I immediately installed & ran Malwarebytes Free which found over 200 and so I deleted them!

Nevertheless, I wish had known about Driverpack-online when Morgans actually first sent me an N4620g (which has a different/better Icore 3 processor, bigger disk & so on) by mistake and I could not get it to run at all cleanly because of various drivers issues (I think they ghosted that m/c with the image for the N2620, and so it had the wrong drivers!), complained a lot and finally got Morgans to replace it with the N2620g. Had I had this utility then, there's a fair chance I could have got the 4620g running - and that would been a bargain.
