Hi!
This should at least solve your video problem. A driver for your specific card is available at: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_178.24_whql.html

(still looking into the audio problem....)

Hope this helps!

    OK. According to Acer, your specific model laptop actually has an ATI Mobility™ Radeon® HD 2300 as the video card. Acer is aware there is a problem running this card under XP, so they have tweaked one of their drivers to make it compatible with this card in XP. It is the Catalyst display driver and here is the link:



    http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/ai...



    ATI suggests that you download and install both the driver and the Catalyst center, but, you are able to download the driver individually.

I cant find a ethernet driver for windows 7 home premium for my acer aspire t120c after updating from windows xp home 32 bit


Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download andinstall the drivers.If you don't see windows 7 drivers, maybe the vista drivers will work. Give it a try.

Hello Balaji.R,

You will need to download the correct VGA driver from Acer website and install it.
Please click the link below to download the driver needed.

http://www.acer.us/ac/en/US/content/drivers

You will need to select the Product Family: Notebook, then Product Line: Aspire and Product Model: Aspire 5738zG

Then it will show all available drivers for your notebook. First select the correct Operating System: (example: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition) and locate the correct VGA driver for your computer and click on it to download it. Make sure to remember where you will save it since you will need to browse the driver file after download is completed.

After downloading the driver, locate it and just install it by double-clicking the file.

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

More information is here:

You may want to consider upgrading rather than downgrading.

THE VISTA ON MY ACER ASPIRE 3680-2680 HAD PROBLEMS


Hi,

If you have no support discs & did not make a recoverty disc then you will have to contact the retailer you purchased the laptop from or Acer themselves. You should have documentation that will detail your product key though without this you may have issues getting the genuine copy of vista reinstalled. An alternative would be to buy a copy of windows 7 (if your laptop can take it) as it is far more stable & streamlined than Vista. or get a genuine copy of XP for cheaper.

Its probably also a good idea to take it back to the local computer guy & demand he reinstalls vista or gives you a genuine copy of XP. You can report him to the police for distributing illegal software too.

Seems like you need todo a fresh installation of windows, either Xp or Vista to get rid of the issues you have now, after that you need the drivers for the laptop

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5720.html

even though it says vista, if the driver name has XP32 or XP64 in the end it means the driver will also work with XP

I have a acer laptop model aspire 4730z windows vista to xp


I think you want to change the operating system from vista to xp, simply re-install xp operating system and it will work but before doing that do check if your model supports xp or not...if it does then you can check for the driver from www.acerpanam.com
