Installing Windows XP in place of Vista in an Acer Extensa 5630

I would like to install Windows XP in place of Vista in an Acer Extensa 5630. Our office printer has conflicts with Vista as well as several other applications.

    There may be some workarounds to the Vista conflicts. Could you tell me what type of printer and the names of the applications which give you trouble?

If you have an XP install disk from within the last 18 months you should not have any problems doing this. Be aware that you will probably void any software warranties you may be enjoying right now.

Sound is distorted,need it to be restored.


Try re-installing the audio driver first. The audio chip maybe faulty.
If you haven't got the driver then download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

Install xp on acer extensa 4220 hard disk not detected


Acer Extensa supports two model of HDD installation 1) AHCI and 2) SATA.

Windows Vista get installs on both but for Windows XP you need to Enable SATA option.

For that go into Bios, Change option of Hard Disk from AHCI to SATA. After that you can install both XP as well as Vista.

Try it, and mail me update: ansari.yasser@gmail.com
