Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
When booting up it takes about 15 min to get to the vista loading screen then immediately switches to an error screen telling me to shut down and restart. I tried to reinstall vista and Fdisk to XP but each time I do after it goes through the initial loading it says I have no drivers to support the system. How can i fix that? I didn't receive a backup disk of the drivers when i bought the laptop two christmas's ago.
If the computer was "new" and was shipped with Vista installed, the manufacturer probably "designed" the computer for Vista, and did not create/include device-drivers for Windows XP.
So, trying to install XP will not work.
So, insert the Microsoft Vista CD-ROM (the one shipped with the computer, not a CD-ROM purchased from a retail store, nor borrowed from a friend), and boot from it, and reinstall Vista.
What manufacturer/model of laptop? Some manufacturers will ship you a set of CDs/DVDs to replace the ones that were shipped with the new computer.
