This question is for janelu! I'm pushing 80 and still trying to keep up with the software advances! I recently purchased Aspire 4330 and would like to replace Vista with XP. I have the XP installation disk! If I'm reading your directions correctly I must completely back up my Vista installed programs and I have to completely reformat my hard drive and then try to reinstall if possible to XP? Also I'm interested in knowing if I can install more memory with out too much problem? I have built desktop computers from scratch in the past but I have never worked on laptops?? Thanks for any help and advice! chetspaulding@gmail.com

I dont think that it would work that way, bro,since Ive tried 3x to install XP SP2 on my aspire 4330. At first, the XP will work but after installing the drivers and programs, it wont boot up.

I successfully installed vista home basic on my aspire 4330. just get a Vista CD installation and follow the instruction. it should be ok

homebasic is the lightest since aspire 4330 only has celeron and 512 RAM. if u want to have vista ultimate, make sure u upgrade ur RAM first

Hi there,

You need the Installer CD to install and recover you Windows OS.

You can purchase for a new Windows Vista Installer or you can barrow from a friend.

Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WLAN problem


Hi,
Yes this is an OS problem. Mostly laptop vendors like ACER expects that the OS is Vista or Windows 7.

And these OS have default drivers of WLAN but unfortunately Windows XP don't have these drivers.

So you have only two options.
Either to upgrade your OS or to search for valid drivers of WLAN of Win-XP on Acer's website.

Please rate this solution properly if it was helpful to you.

With Regards,
Ankit

How to use bluethoot in acer aspire 4330.... i want my phone to be paired with my laptop acer aspire 4330:-)........ plllleeeeezzzzzz heeelppp me!!!!!!:-).......


although there is a button for bluetooth on the aspire (located next to the wifi button) Before you can utilize this function you will need to insert the install disk that came with the laptop, and install bluetooth. Why the aspire has a button for this but does not come installed - I don't know

I was wondering if the Acer Aspire 4330 can be downgraded from Vista to XP?


You can remove the existing partition on your hard disk, create it again and install Windows XP.
You need a Windows XP CD and the product code, and the device drivers for the audio, video, modem, LAN etc for your model laptop.
You need to install your programs as well, you have got a few hours work ahead of you.
This process will wipe out all your data, you need to back up your data before you install Windows XP.
If you do not know how install Windows XP, seek assistance from an experienced friend.

Language change of OS Windows Vista Home basic


spanish may be already installed as package;if not you can install any language from the disk..
on a personal note vista has great graphics but the system runs slow.if the machine is installed with vista its upto speed so if you was to install xp on the machine you would have a nice fast machine.
