You don't need a DVD drive but at least a CD drive for music will work. If you don't have that you can download almost all virus software. While you are researching this online you could download microsoft defender from the microsoft site. It's an okay program and free. When choosing software be sure you get free updates for a long time.

5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Use the OS CD/DVD to boot again and repair the OS. Next get the appropriate drivers compatible for vista from this site and install them on your laptop for it to function properly:

I have aspire 4520 acer laptop.after formatting c drive and installing xp sp-2 ,audio device is missing,kindly advice the solution?


You need to install the support programs for your laptop motherboard. These are also called your "laptop driver software" which is usually shipped or packaged with your laptop. In this CD or DVD Installer, all hardware devices must be well supported by their compatible software drivers.

Now look for the CD/DVD Installer and install the drivers.

Can't use DVD to download software!


If you can get online, you can download and install software without a DVD player.

Also, USB flash drives are great for installing software.

Hey,

In most acer laptops you can remove the dvd drive by removing one screw from the bottom of the laptop. that will free the dvd drive and you can pull it out.

Acer aspire 3680 could not load dvd driver


Let me guess...you tried to install Roxio or another burner, and then it did not work, so you uninstalled it, but now your dvd drive has disappeared. You have tried to update the drivers, but you get a message showing that you have the latest driver, but alas, no dvd drive.

Use the restore point created just prior to installing the burner software and you will be fine. I have fixed 5 Acer 3680 laptops in the last two weeks with this problem. If you want to use Roxio or another burner software, go to the Acer webpage and link from them. Peace and good luck.
