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 ` I`ve got an Acer Aspire 6530 G laptop and I OS Vista but have no tried Windows 7 but the Acer Crystal eye web camera is not working so can you please explain hat I should do ??? Thank you Elisabeth...


Check from Acer Support Europe.
As for the camera for your Acer Aspire 6530 G, there are 2 model versions by vendors:- 1. Bison, 2. Suyin. Are you sure you have correctly install the correction drivers version on your Laptop Vista OS?

If you are not sure, check the laptop specifications manual/brochure, or you can reinstall the drivers for the camera by Trial & Error method. If it does work uninstall rejected drivers and install the next drivers.

Download Camera drivers @ Acer Support Site (UK)

Hope it helps.

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.

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

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

Problem with Acer Aspire 4920 notebook


all laptops are supplied with a pre installed copy of windows and the product key will be on a genuine windows sticker on the back, unless you have no sticker, in which case you will need to purchase a copy, as nobody is likely to be able to help if you have no product key and no Vista disc

You'll probably find this website most useful. This website was designed for users who want to dualboot that already have XP on their machine. There is a link to a how-to for users who already have Vista installed and want XP also. Good luck and I hope this helps.
