Acer Aspire 5520-5334 3D Hardware Acceleration not surpported *Missing drivers*
 
In Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04, they worked perfectly, I could use anything it allowed me to. Still... I didn't want my laptop and desktop running the same distro, because then how would I learn? It's an old PC, it was my dad's side family Laptop *Their 4th one, succeeding 3 desktops infected with massive viruses that made it unbootable* and that laptop had a simple Rogue *Easy Fix* and after getting rid of it *I may have failed to get rid of a rootkit or two because I an email from comcast telling me one of my PCs was a botnet a week after I took it home* and I decided wipe Windows Vista that plagued it! The Hardware is very old, and I think the fans are blocked because after charging for an entire hour it's only half charged and it's gotten hot, and if it's up to 3 then it's alarmingly hot. Anyway...


================================================================================
Above is the background story ^^^^^^^^

I need to find some NVidia GeForce 7000M Proprietary Drivers for my Acer Aspire 5520-5334. Without the drivers I can not enable anything that requires hardware acceleration including compiz-fusion and docky *I always use it, I love it!* Can anyone help me find it? I've searched their website for it but I can't find anything that goes up to 7000M, it only goes up to around 600M. I wonder if it's too outdated... Doubt it, it's only 4-5 years old.

You can use the standard 270.41.19 driver for that card.

It's in deutch, will it work or effect anything? Also, thank you for the link, I'll try it as soon as I get home.

Sorry, didn't thought about the language. I Have the same drivers installed for my GTX260 and the installation and the driver settings are in English (I use en_US locale), so I think it will function for you.
To be sure, here the correct links:

Now, how did you install it? I'm running Fedora 14 if that helps. I tried running it immediately after downloading but it said gedit couldn't open nor recognize it, and it said when I tried running from the command line that it wasn't recognize it. Sorry, I'm still a Linux newbie. Also, may I ask how you found the driver and how you know it's compatible? I plan on distro hopping from Ubuntu to Fedora to Arch to Slack to Gentoo to even LFS eventually, so I have to know how to get the necessary drivers that are needed.
