I GOT DIFFICULTIES USING VISTA HOME BASIC

Formerly, i was using XP SP2, and due to several applications that are intergrated in VISTA H.B., I jumped into it.
Now my problem is I´m not familiar with the VISTA and is giving troubles for it implementation, so, I wanna step back to my old XP SP2 and can´t get it.
After inserting my installation disc which contains the XP SP2 I´m promped with an error message informing me that the drive can not be found.
I have tried the process with four diferent brands of LAPTOPS which includes ACER, TOSHIBA, DELL and HP, and can´t get problem solved
So plz I need your Help,
I´ll be gratefull if you could give a hand.
Thanks in advance.
My name is RUBEN

I unable to install Xp in my compaq cq61-132tu. The install option just doesn't get highlighted. Also, i don't have another computer.


I assume you are attempting a "downgrade" to Xp from Vista, since this laptop does not come with XP.
From the Compaq information page:
  1. HP does NOT support XP for consumer notebooks, so if you have any difficulties regarding XP, do not expect HP will help you.
  2. HP may demand you to install back VISTA if you have hardware problem to troubleshoot it.
    An option to consider-put your original Vista hdd away and install new one for XP.
  3. Some of the notebook features may not work in XP due to uncertified licenses pointed in this guide.
  4. Microsoft has released three (3) Service Packs for XP, use only SP2 for the first trial. Why? Since many of XP drivers are released based on XP-SP2.
  5. Always make Vista Recovery cd/dvd before downgrade to XP. see it here
  6. You have a folder with drivers & programs that may prove very helpful after XP downgrade.
    Copy folder C:\Swsetup to DVD Before formatting your hdd.
  7. If you have a pre-SP2 XP cd, get the full SP to Integrate with Nlite: SP2 Nlite HERE
The help guide for downgrading is here. There is a lot of information on this process written there.

However, if what you want is a an XP look and feel so you can compute the way you used to, change the Vista to look like XP in the display properties.
If you are trying to run non-Vista software, try running it in compatibility mode. To do this, right click on the program files and select properties and then locate compatibility..

Acer 4736 compatibility with eb-s6 projector in usb display mode.


Check the Microsoft knowledge base for a "workaround" for this issue.
Try doing a search for "device not recognized" there should be several steps to correct this issue. However this may be due to compatibility with your projector and the usb port drivers. Contact the manufacturer or go to his website for driver and usb information on your Projector ability to connect to your Acer. Good luck!

Right-click on the Bookshelf 2000 setup exe file, click Properties, Compatibility, click Windows XP SP2, OK. Proceed as usual. I got that from the Internet but I don't remember where. I'm using a Windows Vista Home Basic (HP Compaq Presario, 32-bit) - I haven't tried it on our Vista Ultimate (Core 2 Duo desktop 64-bit).
