    Are you trying to convert back to XP from Vista? (Was Vista the original os or XP?) Thanks

    I need some more information on this issue. What do you mean your system doesn't setup Windows XP? Do you mean your system doesn't recognize your Windows Installer CD-ROM, or is there some form of error preventing setup from installing Windows XP?

When i insert the plug to my laptop, the sounds from the speakers disappeared so i thought it's alright but no sounds are coming from both buds.what should i do? it still has a warranty but i want to fix...


If the computer was playing sound earlier but now now, we can try doing system restore (if it is windows XP, Vista or Windows 7),

Procedure for XP:
Click on start
Click on Programs / all programs
Click on Accessories
Click on System Tools
Click on System restore
Choose restore your computer to a previous time
Choose a bold date, couple of days previously when you know your computer was working fine and follow on screen instructions
If you do not have a hardware problem, this should solve by loading the old settings.


Procedure for Vista / Windows 7:
Click on Start / orb / pearl
Type system restore and follow onscreen instructions to restore your computer to earlier time.

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7


Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

Dear Guys,Windows Vista is very slow.


well first of all vista is slow and ur system may be a bit to old for vista, but thats cause vista is stupid, see vista will do ten things to do one thing! make sense see vista is just a pretty version of xp, Your computer is fast but also you installing a horrible OS on it, just stick with XP man unless you really liked vista then just a newer computer will solve this, just stick to XP.

After applying downloaded vista theme for xp.,how to roll back?


You can make your PC look and gain appearance from previous setting by going to Control panel. You can uninstall Win Vista from add/remove programs from the list. When you are asked to return to previous appearance of your computer, just click yes. And the settings will not take effect unless being rebooted.
Thanks.

Change operating system


You can keep both Vista and XP. Below is the way to install XP, after Vista was already installed... creating a dual boot. First find the drivers for your network components, wireless card or nic, and save them to an external device such as a floppy disk or flash drive. Then you will need to go into the BIOS on your computer startup. Scroll to the System Configuration tab and go down to the SATA Native Support and change its setting to Disabled. Then hit F10 to Save and Exit. Next, insert your Windows XP CD and create the partition you wish to install XP on. After the installation is complete you should boot automatically into XP. Now you need to move some files. First, make sure you have set your folder options to see hidden files and to show protected operating system files. Then open Windows Explorer and go to the drive where Vista is installed. Copy the folder Boot, and the files bootmgr, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM and ntldr and paste them to the root of your XP drive. Then download Vista Boot Pro and save it to your desktop or somewhere else that you can easily access. Unless you already have .Net Framework (v2.0 at least) it will redirect you to a Microsoft page where you can download this necessary component. Install and run Vista Boot Pro and open the "Bootloader" tab. Select "Reinstall the Vista bootloader" and press Apply. Then go to the Manage OS Entries tab and select "Add new operating system entry" and make sure you select "Windows Legacy". Give the new entry a name (ie: Windows XP) and select the drive letter you have XP on and then select Apply. You can also choose which entry you would like as the default the system will boot to. And now you should be able to dual boot between Vista and a previous OS. Thank you! Sabharish

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
