If you try to format & reinstall with winXP bootable CD (Witch is not injected SATA Drivers manually) Simply it will not identified your SATA Hard disk until you download & install manually SATA Drivers (pressingF 2 during installation to install Sata Drivers) Use link below & select your System type and Model to Download SATA & other Drivers as necessary http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html Thank you & Best Regards Dinu….

If you are formatting this model Acer usinf the Windows XP installation CD then Windows cannot detect the hard disk because this Acer uses a SATA hard disk and Windows XP cannot detect a SATA hard disk. The Windows XP installation CD does not include a SATA driver in this CD. To format and install Windows XP on your Acer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive
There should be more than one disk, as the other will be drivers, all you need to do is press F2 or Del to get into your pc's bios settings and change the first boot device to your cd drive, insert your acer disc into the drive, then save the bios settings, restart the pc ,then, when prompted on screen to press enter to boot from cd; do so.
You should then follow instructions to set up windows on the 'C' drive as is default and it may need to reformat in NTFS.
There could be an issue with the user accounts logins. This could be corruption in the OS when you installed it or a clashing driver . I would recommend you reinstall the Operating System with the Disks and before you start installing the drivers try to shut down and see if it shuts down properly . If it does then you know the Operating system and hardware is all fine and can continue installing one driver at a time and shutdown and restarting, continue doing this until you see which driver is causing a confict with your system. I have had a problem similar to this but it was some windows updates pack that I had done one time and had to reinstall windows too and do one by one. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
The drivers for Windows can be used if no specific Linux drivers exist. There's a program within Linux called NDisWrapper which is designed to use the drivers provided for Windows XP in Linux. Refer to your particular distribution of Linux for the details on how to set up NDisWrapper from within your distribution (I've only done it in Ubuntu so have no experience of other distros)
