Re: acer aspire one crashed after installing xp service...
Your installed software version, to include windows (your operating system) is corrupted in some form. It may be several different reasons, but in most cases it is caused by deleted files or a piece of hardware which is about to fail, most times, the hard drive. If you've only had it for a few months, you should absolutely get it in for repair as soon as you can!

Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.
There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/ and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.
A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.
I had same problems before on installing Windows Xp service pack 3 that some component of your computer is not working well webcam not working and others. I believe that the hardware components of the service pack 3. Try to install other operating system like service pack 2 and upgrade for SP3 is available or other.
Reinstall XP, fully update it, download the installers for the latest drivers from http://support.acer.com/us/en/drivers_download.aspx uninstall the ones you have, reboot and install the new ones. The absolute next thing you must do is to install the antivirus. When all that is done configure your pc starting with the display.
Try repairing the startup problem using the bootable disc. If still it doesnt work try restoring your PC using the bootable disc to the point before installing the service pack. Else you will have to reinstall the OS.
You need to install the audio driver.
Go to the Acer WEB site to download the drivers you need, make sure it is Windows XP version for your particular MODEL laptop. Use this link :- http://global.acer.com/support/download.htm
By the way, the latest Service Pack for XP is SP3 you should download this and install it, try to borrow SP3 on a CD because it is approx. 350Mb in size.
The bootable XP cd you have will work - You need to first reinstall the Operating System(XP), then download and install drivers for the devices(Such as touchpad, wireless, etc.)
The device drivers are all available from Acer's support site; If the Network Card driver isn't installed after the windows XP installation, you will need to use a different computer to download the drivers, and transfer them to your laptop using some sort of removable media - USB Flash drive, portable hard drive, memory card, etc.
