    Hi is the version of XP a proper one or a copy?It seems to me that your copy of windows is missing or has corrupted files.

    Hi, 


    When you mean it is stalled, does the hard drive have any activity?


    What kind of drivers you were told to install first? Can you tell me the exact message if it is an error message from windows?

Reformat the hard drive and start over with the Xp after you download the Xp drivers. The disk and OS  that came with it was Xp or VISTA?

I have no sound installed all drivers from acer support its using bluetooth hd audio i cant get realtek to in stall keeps saying driver failed


I hope you still have the CD that comes with the Laptop, you need to run the set utility automatically, otherwise there's likely much problem if the hardware needs bus driver too..(audio bus controller) if not there's must be incompatible driver, such as you installed Xp's for Vista, etc... If this isn't the case, try to install the driver from the Device Manager, instead of running the setup..You can also download the driver from the link provided below.. http://www.driverstock.com/Acer-Aspire-3690-driver-download/4-21-12862-93868/index.html If you still need help, please let me know.. Good luck..

Turn on and nothing happed just freezs


Turns on boots on acer page to 75% then goes to windows XP then a blue page with some writing that's so fast I cant' read it then back to Acer page again and so the cycle continues. Tried F2 got nowhere, tried F8 last known good configuration and safe mode but neither helped. Safe mode didn't boot. Any suggestions, if I need to update BIOS how do I do that - was suggested on another site.

Locked out of my laptop forgot my users password


I have the same computer and I done the very same thing. Do you have the recovery disks that it came with? If so you need to take a paper clip and open the drive by pushing the paper clip the small hole in the cd drive door.... If you cant get the drive door to open. Try running your disks from 1-7. This should at least get you to the BIOS. Set your Boot order to where the 1st line says from CD drive. Then you should be good to go to factory settings.

If that does not work if you have a 98, Ultiamte Boot Utility, Vista Bootable CD, They can boot your system and format your hard drive whatever you want to do. You will lose all your data but at least you will be able to use it.
