    Clean install 8.1- SSD complete- now which drivers?

    Completed clean install 8.1 on new SSD from 8.0.
    Device manager shows no exclamation points/errors.
    Went to manufacture website and attempted to download all drivers . After restarting got a code 19 error in device manager on my keyboard and touchpad. No sure what happened, but both did not work. The option to roll back both drivers were graded out. I then uninstalled both drivers and then restarted hoping it'll install the driver correctly,but did not work. So, I did a system restore and now I'm back to where I started. Which drivers do I stay away from? Looking at all dates listed on acer's website, I should be dling/updating all thats listed.

    I went to the the intel site via intel driver update utility and saw that there was only 1 product/update detected: Intel® HD Graphics 2000. However, the acer site doesn't have it listed? The acer site has drivers that aren't even in my device manager...
    So confused..
