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.

My Acer Aspire touchpad is not working i have tried function f7 and it still does not work plz help?


check to make sure that your driver is installed for your laptop. here is a link to a touchpad driver.on the website you can change the operating system to which one that you need. If that doesnt work then it probably burnt out and needs to be replaced which isnt to hard or to expensive. there are several service manuals on how to take them apart on the net. hope this helps. link is below

My touchpad still wont work for my acer 3000


There is a button to turn on and off the touch pad. Is there a button on your keyboard that has the letters FN on it? if so hold that down and see what comes up. If not search for any kind of switch near your touch pad or that is on the keyboard that is not a normal typing key.

you may need to reinstall the drivers for keyboard and touch pad, if you still have the drivers cd on hand look for these two important drivers, since you have the new xp installed all drivers have been erased.

Cannot Re-install Windows from Recovery DVD's ACER 5610-4179


Hello,
Your recovery disks must be scratched or files are corrupted. Since you have successfully installed XP Pro, why not stay with it as it's better than Home?
If you have a restoration partition on your C drive, you may be able to revert to your original configuration from it. And if you insist on XP Home or only have a valid product key for home, you can borrow a disk from anyone who has a good copy.
I hope this helps.

Original boot discs


I'm afraid, you can't install XP home over XP Pro; it could be done the other way around. you'll have to  backup your important files then format your drive and restart from scratch.

if you have 2 partitionon in your HD e.g C: and D:
you can copy all your important files in the D:\ drive and just format and install XP home in the C:\ drive.
