5-in-1 card reader for optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Good Morning: I have an Acer Aspire 5920


Hello,

As by your description, the FN F7 key combo did not solve the problem. Please restart the machine , press F8 then select from the list "Safe mode" then press enter. Then see how the Touch pad reacts in Safe mode. If it works perfectly in safe mode, we can assume you have a software problem that is preventing it from working in normal windows mode.

Please download and install the latest BIOS for your machine. The E525 has a issue where the TP just stops working, upgrading the BIOS solves the issue on the E525...

Please install one of these drivers for the desired Operating system...

The system cannot find the specified file


It seems as though your windows is corrupted. To solve this I would recommend a recovery back to factory settings but this will delete all the data of the computer.

You can save your data by
using an IDE/ATA to USB adapter on another computer or take it to computer store.

To begin the recovery
Remove all external devices like printers, mp3 players etc

Ensure the laptop is running on ac power

You can start the Recovery from outside Windows by holding down ALT and F10 on the Acer BIOS splashscreen on power up.

How to install empowering technology


Acer support should have most of the drivers on their site for your model. If they do not- you probably will have to contact them for further assistance. Software is not always available from acer and their online support is kind of half 4ssed for u.s. customers. I usually have better luck getting drivers and support from the European sites for acer.
