    I´m no sure what you are asking, first you say that have a laptop with vista and change the OS to xp and then you talk about anothe machine. What is the real question?

Yes that was too much they ask, sometimes recovery disk is not working and all you have to do is to reinstall the operating system because it is corrupted and won't boot up the operating system. If you have all the drivers CD of your laptop and windows xp or any operating system installer CD, i will guide you a guide on how to reinstall the operating system, here is the link of my blog : http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean and how to reinstall all the drivers.

If you don't have all the drivers, you can search the acer model number of your laptop drivers and it is free of charge. Any queries, I am here to help you. Good Luck. Installing drivers are easy to operate.

I had he same problem connecting to the internet after downloading the updates for Windows XP. It turn out to be that the surcurity downloads are to harsh for some anti virius programmes, and I was told to uninstall my free version of Zone Alarm and try to connect to the internet again. This I did do and was able to connect to internet again. I have since re-installed the Zone Alarm programme and I am able to use the internet once again with the above working.

I hope this help's you.
