Software


Your system has a hidden partition with Vista and all your drivers on it, you need to decide wether to keep this partition in tact (incase you want to install Vista again) or to delete it and use the whole drives available space making it one partition instead of two.
ONLY delete the recovery partition if you have a copy of windows XP that you OWN. otherwise if you have problems again, you will have to find a disk again.
You will need a copy of windows xp, set the bios to boot to the cd/dvd rom in the BIOS and boot the system with the xp disk, do a full install first delete any partitions (unless you save the hidden partition, then just delete the large partion)
Repartition the empty space , then format the drive, which you will be prompted to do after partitioning, then the cd will install windows. follow the prompts.
Once finished , go here http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&areaid=2&formid=3394#results
and download the 5 XP drivers for your system, install the chipset andcpu driver , then proceed to the NIC, audio and video.
You will then need to install any programs you had installed before. keep in mind a vista version of software may not operate correctly on XP. windows xp is about 130 dollars for the disk , but you can find copys on ebay for around 90.
poast again if you need more help

Computer running very slow


internet properties delete all temporary files, delete cookies, delete history, set history to a low number. on start menu go to accessories run disk clean up, run disk defragment this will take awhile this action will take duplicate files and put them in one location. you will not lose anything. you also can go to my documents and clear out old items that you dont use this will speed you up some, also in your control panal file add/remove programs you may want to look for files that were downloaded from the internet that you decided you didnt want or that you dont need or use, and delete these,this action wiil free up used disk space that will also speed up your pc just keep in mind do not delete anything that runs another program that you do use because this will cause that program not to function right, any of this information will help speed your internet and your pc all together.
