You need to reformat the hard drive and then install XP.
to do this you will need to insert the xp disk and then reboot the computer/laptop. when prompted you will need to delete the existing partition and then create a new one. reformat the partition and install xp. you will need a valid XP code to do this.
Their are many good guides to formating and installing xp on the internet.

Acer extensa 4220 wireless problem


I'm not sure if you tried hitting the appropriate key on your keyboard to initialize your wireless network. Check your manual to see which key it is, it is not automatic. Also, make sure you have a wireless card. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system it will give you a list of all your hardware, Look for 802.11b/g that is the wirless.

If you have an XP install disk from within the last 18 months you should not have any problems doing this. Be aware that you will probably void any software warranties you may be enjoying right now.

Acer Extensa supports two model of HDD installation 1) AHCI and 2) SATA.

Windows Vista get installs on both but for Windows XP you need to Enable SATA option.

For that go into Bios, Change option of Hard Disk from AHCI to SATA. After that you can install both XP as well as Vista.
