Well, we wont know until you try. In my opinion, your 32/64 bit issues will be solved, but you would still have the normal vista/xp compatibility issues.

But that is to be expected, like when we all upgraded from win98 to XP.

So - I would recommend downgrading to Vista 32 bit, or getting the 64bit software version of the programs you want to use.

Good Luck, and let me know what you did, and how it turned out! :)

Dear sir/Madam, I am using the laptop brand name (acer aspire 5738zG-423G32Mn).last week i changed my system OS from vista to windows Xp in that time I faced problem to install VGA because i had missed...


Hello Balaji.R,

You will need to download the correct VGA driver from Acer website and install it.
Please click the link below to download the driver needed.

http://www.acer.us/ac/en/US/content/drivers

You will need to select the Product Family: Notebook, then Product Line: Aspire and Product Model: Aspire 5738zG

Then it will show all available drivers for your notebook. First select the correct Operating System: (example: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition) and locate the correct VGA driver for your computer and click on it to download it. Make sure to remember where you will save it since you will need to browse the driver file after download is completed.

After downloading the driver, locate it and just install it by double-clicking the file.

Problems downloading from camera using windows 7 - error message say windows XP required - is it possibel to upgrade software to be compatible with windows 7


If your OS is Win7 64 bit, then incompatibility must be occur because Windows XP use 32bit Operating System and driver software usually only special for each OS (x32 or x64). About upgrading the software, how will you upgrade while you can't even install the basic software in your PC ? The choice you have is find another driver that compatible with your OS, you can search via Google, and I hope you are lucky enough to get it available or even free to download.
If you still want to upgrade, then the Windows7 is the one to be upgraded so you can use XP Mode system. You must have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate to run Windows XP Mode. You can visit microsoft.com for details.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

I have an aspire one ZG5 with windows 7 OS but an evaluation copy only!now i want to return my OS to windows XP but the erecovery software is no longer on my laptop!what is the best thing to do?


It appears that you have been using Windows 7 RC (release candidate)
When it was installed, you or whoever performed the installation deleted the recovery partition, from what I can tell.

So, either borrow a disc (OS that matches the one you had originally) and install it using your windows product key.

Or........ Go get Windows 7......that's my best advice, honestly.

I ran the RC and got lucky in October, when I was awarded a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. For most users, Home Premium or Professional (If you like the extra options like the full on backup features) will suffice. Most folks, nearly anyone, has no dire need for the Ultimate version.

How to install usb without a disc drive on your laptop?


Hi,

This is a little more easy if your using a Vista OS, if that's the OS you are using then I'll advice that you just plug in the USB. Give it some minutes to automatically install the driver software for the device and it would do this automatically.

Hope this helped.

Acer Extensa 4620Z Crystal Eye Webcam Not Working.


Hallow Dear,

First I would like to advice you to remove the webcam driver & application completely from add/removes program in control panel. And make sure after you reboot our PC let the webcam detected by windows as unknown device.

Use link below & Select the EXACT WEBCAM DRIVER THAT YOU HAVE; under Driver & Utilities, according to your OS. Then you will get connect to download automatically.

Install properly & reboot once.

*** If you are using VISTA***
Please ensure that VISTA SP1 is installed on your system prior to installing these drivers! Driver incompatibilities on a system without VISTA SP1 might affect usability.

Sound problem


I have seen this before, unfortunately my only %100 solution was to format the drive and install windows fresh.

most likely the drivers where updated with incompatible drivers with your mother board/sound card.

Acer Notebook 5610Z - Want XP Drivers


if your currently able to surf the internet with your vista os id suggest downloading the drivers for windows xp from the manufacturer onto a usb storage device like a thumb drive or external hard drive(hdd).
after you have all the drivers you'll need have:
the windows xp disk.
1)before you restart the computer insert the windows xp disk into the cd-rom

2)resart the computer

3)when the computer starts to post press the appropriate hotkey to enter the bios(usually f1,f2 or delete key) it'll tell you on the splash screen.

4)check the boot order in the bios making sure the cdrom is the first boot device. if it is press f10 to save and let the computer boot.

5)on the upper left of the screen you'll see (boot from cd)press any key(hit a key quickly)
windows xp will then start loading on the computer.

6)windows will look for previous installations of operating systems and display them on the screen

7)click on the partition w/the current os (when you click the os will be highlighted)

8)xp will give you the choice to install delete or format the current partition

9)choose to delete the partition

after you delete the partition windows will show a matrix of the hard drive without partitions (RAW SPACE)

10)highlight the raw space
11)choose create
