On Acer Aspire One driver download page, I tried to look for ZG5 using the drill-down menu:
Product Family: Netbook -> Product Line: Netbook -> Product Model

But I could not find the model number ZG5. Looking back to the Wikipedia page on Acer Aspire One netbook, the closest model with similar specification is AOA150 and AOA110. So please select these two models and use the drivers for your Acer Aspire ZG5.

One problem I found about these drivers is there might be more than one brand/vendor for each item, for example there are webcam from both LiteOn and Suyin brands. You need to know the brand before you can install the driver or it might not work. Installing the wrong driver from different vendor wont damage your hardware but it is really troublesome for novice users. I wish Acer can come out with some sort of driver updater like the one from Lenovo Thinkpad which will update the drivers automatically.

Available drivers are as below (for Windows XP 32 only)

  1. 3G module
  2. Audio
  3. Camera
  4. Card Reader
  5. LAN
  6. Touch Pad
  7. VGA
  8. Wireless LAN

To download the driver, make the selection Netbook-Chromebook -> Aspire One -> AOA150 at the download page.
