    lol well lets just say i didnt exactly buy it - and its windows xp pro, so yeah it loads up all ok i can enter the bios alright but it just doesnt seem to want to loadup the disk

    lol i know, i actually figured out one of the problem kind of - turns out the hard drive was damaged so i put in another one newly formatted but now it turns out the bios doesnt support 300gigs -_-



    i suppose if i had a smaller hard drive i could then install xp and update the bios



    what do u guys think?



    p.s if i cant fix it i might just salvage everything i can and get a new motherboard

You can't just pop in a disc and update it, you have to do a lot before you can do that. That's like saying you're just gonna grow 6 feet tall tomorrow...doesn't work like that.

I my laptop cant boot windows 7 and xp together !


Hi,
Since you have installed XP after installing windows 7 & vista, you have erased the boot manager of vista. To get it back, just download & install Vista Boot Pro from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/VistaBootPRO.shtml

You Need To Boot From The XP CDrom...
Press Power Button To Boot, Hold Down F-12, Choose To Boot From CDROM, Go Through The Windows Setup Process, Remove Vista (delete it), then Format and Install XP...

Your 7520 can use the drivers from another acer model, for instance, try aspire 3000, or 5000 drivers.. or try another model...
If it's not the correct one, it will not install and throw up an error telling you it is incompatable and not going to install....
