Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Acer Aspire x3200 vista 64 bit upgraded to windows 7 32 bit. Coprocessor now has a yellow exclamation make. I have tried to update the driver but it cannot find any.


better wa y is to downgrade your OS back to Vista 64bit, the problem with windows 7 is that most of the drivers operational to xp and vista are still not supported by windows 7.

I bought Acer aspire 5738 recently i want to know wheather it will accept XP OS?please give me the clarification


yes it definitly will since you recently bought it,all operating systems will be supported by your laptop that were launched after 1998,so if you just bought a computer it definitly will have windows vista,if it has windows vista it will support windows xp,cauz vista is just a higher user interface than xp,in laymans terms it just needs a higher amount of ram and a higher processor,any old p3 or higher can run xp

I bought an acer aspire 5050 used it came with windows xp but the product key in the back for vista i want vista back on it what should i do


Buy a vista upgrade disc and install the upgrade, the new disc will come with another key to use because the one on the bottom is strickly for the OEM installation that came with the laptop, if you no longer have that restore disc than the original product key will not take.

Problem about Win XP and Vista


If you install Vista on your machine be sure to back up all of the important files you have on your computer BEFORE you do the upgrade. You will most likely lose all of your files when you upgrade as it will be an operating system switch. As far as Vista goes it is, in my opinion, a better operating system than XP. The only downside is it takes a little bit more power to run it. I would not recommend upgrading unless you have at least 1 gig of RAM and a decent processor. (In order to check this simply right click on your My Computer icon and click "Properties" and you can see what you have there). If you have at least 1 gig of RAM and a decent processor then by all means upgrade!
