    Did you try to upgrade the OS? It happened to me that way everytime. You just can't do it, as far as I'm concerned. The few times I got vists onto it, my network devices stopped working, and I was never able to get a better version of XP, no matter what route I took (Flash boot, ext. disk drive, usb hard drive, nothing). Gotta just be happy with what you got, or back up everything you want every time you try it.

Hello i have an Acer Aspire One model zg5 netbook

You're going to need to boot it from the Windows XP installation disk, which means if you don't have a CD drive you'll need to get an external CD-ROM drive. This will fix the problem.
