You might be able to contact Acer and request them to send you the XP version restore disks. But, just so you know, this might be very difficult, because XP has become obsolete and is no longer for sale. You can also try to borrow or find an XP OS disk, or take your computer to either a friend that you know that could do this, or to a computer repair place such as Best Buy. But, first of all, you have to make sure that all of your computer's hardware is compatible with XP, because computer are now being sold with Vista Only option. You really can find out about your computer's OS options by contacting your pc manufacturer.

Probably not. If the computer was built for Vista, there is a good chance that there are no drivers for XP. I suggest you upgrade to Win 7. Very soon, XP will be an end-of-life product. OMHO, you are wasting your time going to XP.

Acer Aspire 5738 laptop Finger not working on VISTA


It is Better do this : Instead of Updating the drivers, roll back the driver first and unintall the Hardware Totally from your system through the device manager. Next, restart your system, and then it prompts for 'New Hardware Found', use the Finger Printer Driver That you have, to re-install it afresh, if you dont have you can download it from here :

After that, restart your system again. It should work like that now.

You need to format the drive so back up all docs etc that you want to keep and then boot from the install disc (make sure it's an install disc NOT an upgrade) then you will see an option to format and partition the drive. The problem is that Vista is an upgrade from xp, and it won't allow you to downgrade.

Vista on new blank hardrive


Your ACER Extensa should have come with a recovery CD. Just boot up to that CD and follow the instructions.

Vista to xp


You should first try acer's site, assuming that they actually created the drivers. I tried once to do the same but some of the hardware's drivers proved to be useless... It is best if you find the drivers at the acer site, as it is much more reliable than other places in the net...

Startup repair will not fix problem


thank  for the responce 
if you can risk loosing all the data then you  could go ahead with reinstalling the Operating system
if you have a windows xp  installation disc  you should go with that. but after that you might have to find the drivers for your laptop  from the internet
if you need any help  finding those you could always contact me
.


 windows vista might have all the drivers for the laptop preinstalled (that is just my guess as i have see this quite a few times) after you install vista but for that you will have to  purchase a windows vista installation disc
thanks......

Make preinstalled vista


If not, the guys who sold yhe pc should install it for you, since a part of the computers price is for the OS, or at least they should provide you a recovery DVD.
