Windows is sometimes very annoying, I believe the update configuration file is probably corrupted. You can download the SP2 manually here.
You can also change your update settings to "install updates without prompting so that" so that it will install updates in the background without disturbing you.

Sai.

Aspire 1640z windows xp can I load sp 3 or is sp 2 the limit for this PC


You should be able to get XP 32-bit SP3 added. However, Windows Update will not work with XP SP2. Thus you will need to manually download the update and then install it. This is the link to the update: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24 . Click on the Download button. This is the version usually used for computers that aren't on a network.

I hope this helps.

(the Acer 1640z came with XP SP2; most computer companies support all of the service packs for their originally installed OS.)

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.

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.

Acer Aspire One will not connect to wireless router


Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP, and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you discribe

Hello, Is the Windows 7 is compatible to my Acer Laptap


Hi,
I would recommend sticking with windows xp on this model. New laptops are getting very inexpensive for the cost of windows 7 your better off buying a new laptop for 300$. If you operating system is performing up to what you think it should. I would consider backing up important data and formating and reinstalling windows.
Thank you,
Lee

Can't connect to internet with built in wireless


Do you have Windows XP, and did you install Service Pack 3? If so, you may need to go to the wireless card's manufacturer's site and download an updated driver (or if not available, reinstall the original driver). SP3 puts in a file that is incompatible with many wireless cards.
