You could have a faulty DVD/CD drive.
Take it back to the shop as the laptop is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as it might void your warranty.

    It appears you may have installed the wrong driver.

    Go to the Acer WEB site to download the drivers you need, make sure it is Windows Vista version for your particular MODEL laptop.

I own an Acer Aspire 8930G, and as of a few weeks ago, it will not power on. At first I thought it was the AC adapter at fault, as the wire on the side that is inserted into the laptop had a small cut in...

This is a long shot but take out the battery and leave it a couple of hours then replace and place it on charge overnight then retry next day, you have maybe already tried that, the only other thing I can think of is get a multimeter or someone who knows how to use one and check that the voltage is kicking out 19v DC from the charger

Can I change a aspire 8930g from a vista 64 bit to a xp 32 operating system

I went to the Acer Pan American site ( and navigated to the aspire 8930g page for drivers. The 'drop-down' window allows you to select Windows XP (Pro or Home) and provides a list of drivers for you model laptop. Check it out!

The Acer I bought for my Son last Xmas had the option of producing a full set of recovery disks and a drivers disk. If you have this option and you have used it then you have a way back to a functioning laptop if you have problems with the O/S change.

Download the drivers you need for the laptop accesories you have BEFORE YOU CHANGE THE OPERATING SYSTEM. Do your change then install your drivers. It appears from the surface that you should be able to do this change.
