    Have you checked Acer's support site for a driver? Also some DVD software works better than others, I've had good results with PowerDVD & prefer it to WMP.

Not enough video memory to play a DVD?


Go to www.crucial.com download their Advisor program and run it on your machine

It will report how much memory you have on board

1gb is the bottom line for running XP, 2gb for Vista

Using XP and a DVD player it is a 2gb application

3gb if you are running Vista.

Some laptops allow you to limit how much Ram Windows can steal on start up

Hello , if you have a Vista then dont be need of panic because you can burn cd/DVD using Vista . Simply put the empty disk into it and files which you want to burn , drag on that cd drive location then there is option for burning CD/DVD. simply click them and your CD will ready... and if you want to third party software , I would recomend to use NERO....

I think due to Battery your laptop should not be slow . But as per the RAM in your laptop you need to add some more RAM with WinXP and SP3 with the type of Configuration it will be slow with or without power.

often when a newer computer comes with vista installed.... going backward and installing xp just doesn't work because the new hardware is not compatable with xp.

Some Vista driver may work on XP, however, to avoid any risk of getting in troubles with your Windows xp installation, you can download drivers and utilities for XP starting from this page.

Xp


The driver you have downloaded may only support windows Vista. This may be your case. As one technical expert says that all driver versions above 100 are made for vista. So download some lesser versions.
