You have to buy the upgrade then put disk in cd rom drive and restart computer. I would back everything up first though.

Hi phedz_17jun , what do you mean you cannot downgrade it? Because as what I can see your computer is capable in handling windows XP, you just have to reimage it using a windows XP CD... let me know the... details so I can help you.

If you have the Sylvania SYNET07526 note book, you can not up grade. It uses Win CE which is a small operating system initally made for hand held devices. What you have on the machine is all you can have.

I recently inhereted a laptop that is a little older but was told it worked. It powers on but says there is no operating system found. While trying to reinstall windows it stays on the blue windows install...

Two problems.

1. When selling a computer, It is the responsibility of the owner to remove the operating system according to the EULA (end user license agreement), so, I suppose that is what happened.

2. You are trying to use an Upgrade version of the operating system to install on the computer, and the up grade disk is looking for a previous version before it allows the upgrade.

There are ways around it, but it takes work. see

Describe your acer aspire 7735ZG drivers Problem drivers problem before with Vista now with XP Pro i could not load the right drivers still have problems after one year buying the laptop please let give me...

If you installed the customized(!) version of Windows that ACER supplies with each new ACER computer, namely Windows Vista Home Premium, you should have all of the correct device-drivers.

If you "down-graded" from that version of Windows to Windows XP, and some of the device-drivers are "missing", then I recommend that you reinstall Windows Vista, or purchase an "upgrade" to Windows 7.

You might try to access the manufacturer's web-site, via:
to see if they support "down-grading" to Windows XP, and if they supply the needed device-drivers.

But, your BEST solution is to reinstall Windows Vista, and be sure to apply "Service Pack 2" to Vista, to bring it up-to-date.
