*If upgrading after initial purchase, one or more of the memory cards provided with the system may have to be replaced with optional larger memory cards in order to achieve the maximum capacity.

5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

How much maximum ram does acer aspire 4520 support? and is it fine if we have one ram of 2 gb and the other of 1 gb?


Your machine currently has this ram (1GB DDR2 667 SDRAM)

You can upgrade to 4GB DDR2 800MHz ram, sell old one off.
If you use old ram you must exactly match to old in speed, ie 2GB ddr2 667 SDRAM.

I recommend renew with matched larger faster ram 2 + 2 GB DDR800

2 keys have come off acer aspire 4520


If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

OR
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.
