Go to the manufacturers website of your soundcard, motherboard if it's onboard audio, and download the drivers for the Windows XP operating system. Install & rebbot. Hope this helps.

ACER aspire 5720 i have degraded to XP os but the audio drivers available in acer support which has been installed and sound is not comming. please clarify me


If you downgraded then make sure you did not use the vista drivers unless they also state that they will work for xp.

You should also check that the hardware is installed correctly.

to do this go to CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE
If you see any exclamation marks in the hardware list then fix those first by getting the correct drivers and installing them one by one doing a restart in between each driver installation

There are four versions of the 5720 and you should ensure you know which one yours is before downloading drivers.

I tryed to install win xp to aspire 5720 but i can not


Was Windows Vista installed before? If so, it is impossible to install it. From personal experience,I do not even recommend the Dual Boot as it messes up the two system files and everything will eventually fail. If you had any other OS installed, you have to do an initial Back-up when you buy it. This is because the factory image includes all drivers necessary for your computer to run. If you try to install another OS than the one pre-installed, the drivers will be missing. There is also the fact that laptops tend to have SATA drives which are only detected with Windows XP PRO Service Pack 3. If you don't have this Version of XP, it won't detect your hard drive.
Hope this helps.

Drivers for my laptop


go to acer.com select the model ot your laptop and download the driver you need.
hardware drivers are related to the laptop, not to the windows operting system.

How to downgrade acer aspire 5720 vista to xp


Hi,
I just got my 5720-4126 so once I had to test the Factory re-install (ALT-F10 at the ACER screen) and knew I could get back to where I started (Vista), tried to install XP from CD. It couldn't even see the disk drive :-(

ACER Aspire 5720


Hi All,

We are a workshop in Spain & I have had several problems with "Down grading" to XP. There is essentially one problem which causes an issue with the XP installation & that is if the the BIOS has a "Fixed" sata configuration. By that I mean you cannot change it to some sort of IDE or P-ATA (Symantics). Our current problems are with an Acer 5720 & an HP Pavilion DV9700. The Acer solution is exactly as "kraken3000" had mentioned before:
1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

DONOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot. This setting must be kept untill you "Upgrade" (If ever) to Vista. The HP is another story...

Visit the Acer Panam site & download & install the XP drivers & your good to go...

I hope that this was of help...& good luck folks
