    The installation of Vista was done from a CD drive, a file on a jump drive? How did you get the version of Vista, through Internet or you bought it in a store?

Acer Aspire M5641
NVIDIA nForce 630i/7100
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4700 @ 2.60GHz

1. Go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
2. Download the latest version driver, extract to flash disk.
3. Connect your flash disk when windows said that driver is missing (before enter vista serial
number) and browse to "IDE/WinVista/sataraid" windows will choose the driver that it need,
install it
4. The process will continue as usual....

Remove the hard drive from your Acer computer, and install it in another PC or Mac. Format the drive (NTFS) and install a copy of Windows Vista onto that drive. (I don't think it matters what version.) Remove the drive again and install it back into the Acer computer. Now boot off the Acer recovery CD (Disk 1, light gray label), and it should start to reload all the factory default drivers and such onto the hard drive. I had to restore my Acer Aspire M5641 this way. It's a pain, but it does work.

SOURCE: Have an acer aspire sa80,

Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire AM3100-U3202A ''hard drive'' will not boot up

That could be a hardware failure of some sort, or because you added a new hardware device. The "DMI pool" code has nothing to do with Windows, but is part of Plug and Play. Windows has not even loaded yet. It is the System Board BIOS startup code checking the hardware configuration, and setting system board resources for Plug and Play to use. Go in to the system board BIOS (normally DEL key when first powering on) Look in the PnP or PCI Configuration section, for an entry "Reset Configuration Data. It will show Disabled. Change it to Enabled, and save the new configuration and reboot. BIOS will set it back to Disable after it clears the DMI data and rebuilds it. The first time through, it will take a long time, but after that it should not hang. Unless there is a hardware problem with one of the adapters on the system board or PCI bus.
I have seen CD-Rom drives cause this hang, if there is a CD in the drive. So make sure there are no CD's in the drives when you start up.

SOURCE: coprocessor driver for windows 7

Hi,

Try letting Windows update detect and install the coprocessor driver for you.
You may have to perform the Windows update a couple of times before the device is detected.

When you start windows update it will give you a list of software and drivers that are available, you will in the list that there are optional updates available. Check there to see if the coprocessor driver is there and install everything except for the language packs.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem for you.


Good luck.

How can i install windows xp in acer aspire m5641 can u tell me plz yours best regrds zakir


Hi,
The acer aspire M5641 , usually ships with windows Vista. If you are planning to install windows Xp. You would have to source the windows xp cd. You cannot buy the XP cd from microsoft as windows xp is now and end of life operating system and not sold off the shelf. However if you already have the XP cd with you , you can use the same cd. Note hardware on your acer may not work , because of driver unavailability for XP operating system. However if your system was shipped with , refer to the following video links to guide through the reinstall process

I want to downgrade ACER ASPIRE M5641 desktop form vista to XP. What steps to follow? Also I have only the backup CD which I made right after the purchase , originally installed with VISTA. Understand it...


You'll have to purchase the XP software, set your computer to boot from cd (in the cmos settings), put the disk in the cd and restart you computer. When the screen comes up to "...hit any key to boot from cd" hit any key. The system will boot to the XP cd and will allow you to delete the old partition, reformat your drive, and install XP. Next go to www.acer.com and download your drivers. Finally install your programs and data on to your hard drive. Have fun!

NOTE: Make absolutely sure that you backup the programs and data that you want to keep before starting the XP install!

My aspire m5641 wont format to vista it freezes when i "select the driver to be installed" then suddenly freezes plzz help


Acer is known for that. The easiest way to format the hard drive is to insert any windows installation cd, then when the computer first powers on, press F12 and change the boot order to boot from cd. Follow the instructions through, and one of the steps will ask you to format the hd. Another way is to hook up the hd secondary on another computer and format it.
