Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Computer cannot recognize some things.

I recently did a dual boot with Vista and XP and my XP computer does not recognize some things such as my chipset. Before i realized that fact, I was busy searching for a SM Bus controller that my computer need drivers for, I realized i needed to go to the AMD site [Have a AMD Processor ] to download the chipset drivers, but now the any AMD setup says "No AMD components were found" Everything is running fine currently but it bugs me that I cant find a driver for SM Bus controller.

I have Gateway GT5676 and I have no clue what Mobo I have because the detector is not able to pick it up but here is other info.

AMD Phenom Quadcore 9600 @ 2.3GHZ
4GB Ram
BIOS - American Megatrands [Released - 2/18/2008]

How to make dual boot with window xp vista and windows 7


Dual booting Windows is the most challenging of the three options; however, making it work can be very rewarding. The process of creating a dual boot environment differs from Windows Vista to XP. Please follow the instructions according to which version of Windows you are currently using.
To run two operating systems on your computer, you will need to add a second partition. If you are not familiar with adding a partition, you can learn how in this section. Please note: each operating system will be able to see the other partition; thus, you can share files between them.

Dual Boot with window x and windows 7

You will need third party software to create a second partition for Windows 7; once you have created the partition, you can install Windows 7 on it.

Create a New Partition (Vista)

Click the Start button, right click Computer, and clickManage

In the left pane, click Disk Management

Now create a new partition by shrinking a previous volume so you can use the newly created space. Right click on the partition and clickShrink Volume.

Now right click the free space and click New Simple Volume…
Specify the volume size and click Next

Format the drive as NTFS, give it a label, and click Next

Power on your computer, insert the Windows 7 DVD, and restart your computer

Press the necessary key to initiate booting from your DVD (usually Esc or F12.)

Windows will now load the installation files.

Click Install now
Your computer will restart several times during the process as it configures itself and installs updates Be sure to leave the DVD in the drive and let Windows take care of itself.


Memory (RAM) – 1.25 GB required, 2 GB memory recommended.
Recommended 15 GB hard disk space per virtual Windows environment.
NB: Windows XP Mode is only available in Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate.

From what you're saying I get that you want to install Windows XP with Service Pack 3 on your computer. Are you wanting to replace Vista, or do you want a dual boot system? Do you have a Vista CD as well if you want a dual boot system? Did you receive any other disc's with the computer that may have a driver set on it?

HP computer with both Vista and Windows XP


If you truely have Xp and Vista installed properly, you will see a dual-boot menu when the PC starts up... From there you would have the option to choose which operating system you wanted to start... Otherwise, if you dont see that menu, you still might have both OS installed but you would have to edit the master boot record...

The problem is that you are searching AMD for a Gateway driver. They have proprietary BIOS which AMD will not recognize so get the drivers here: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1015332R/1015332Rnv.shtml   Merry Christmas and post back if you have any further issues. Steve Medley

Windows XP


It should have come with the 32. For dual boot on this machine, go in and set up XP on the same partition as Vista. When the machine starts up it will go to a screen that allows you to choose which op system you want. You shouldn't, but if you run into conflicts you will need to create a separate partition for the two op systems.
