I accidentally uninstalled the Broadcom card reader driver installer and Broadcom netlink controller on my Acer Aspire One 756 and, naturally, the reader stopped recognizing my SD card. I downloaded the card reader installer directly from Acer's website, and after installing what I thought was the one driver I needed, the reader still wont read my SD card. Kodak Esp 7250 Driver For Windows 10 on this page. So Im asking if anyone on the forum can give me a step by step instruction on how to undo my mistake so that my computer can read SD cards again. Thanks so much for your help. Couple questions: 1) The only flag I see in the Device Mgr is Ethernet Controller. So does that mean I need the Broadcom LAN Driver?
I don't see anything that says 'Ethernet' on Acer's driver download page 2) Since I already have the Card Reader installed (assuming I picked the right one. Acer just gives you a load of files and I guess its up to you to search for whatever it is you need within all the different folders and files), do I now need to uninstall it since you said to install the Chipset first? Install the Chipset driver first, you do not need to uninstall anything that was previously installed.

When it completes the unzipping, it should start an Install process automatically. If not, browse the downloaded Unzipped file on the C: drive and there should be a Setup.exe file there. Double click this to start the install. If not, in the Device Manager, Right click the Device that you need to install the driver for, and choose Update Driver. Browse it to the Unzipped folder on your C: drive to the.inf file, this will install the driver.
