Actually, the maximum amount of ram the laptop can have is 144mb (128+16 built-in). At the maximum processing speed of 200mhz, XP will run and install, but it crawls (tried it with the extensa 367d.) I've tried a few linux variations but finally settled on windows 2000 professional for compatibility and it performs quite well for it's age. Win2k still allows you to use most applications written for winXP and allows most XP based hardware to work as well! (I've been able to add wifi and bluetooth and it recognizes usb flash drives without a problem)

Re: acer extensa 367 t
The only new hardware that you can install on that laptop is ram, and with a maximum of 80mb EDO you might be better off loading up a version of Linux that does not require a lot of memory. XP would be like molassas in January in Alaska. Vista would just not even get past the opening install screen.

Yes it is nothing to do with hardware problem of yours, here is a tip to install your windows xp on your ACER Extensa, but before that I tell you that your hard drive inside is Sata so this is the solution, go to your BIOS Setup and change the setting of your hard disk from SATA mode to IDE Mode, find it their., and have your installation with your new windows xp, trust me, good luck!
you need to reformat the hard drive and then install XP.
to do this you will need to insert the xp disk and then reboot the computer/laptop. when prompted you will need to delete the existing partition and then create a new one. reformat the partition and install xp. you will need a valid XP code to do this.
Their are many good guides to formating and installing xp on the internet.
