Have you done any maintenance such as Disk Cleanup and Defrag?
This should be done regularly, at least once a month.
Disk cleanup cleans up unwanted compressed and temporary files and returns/recovers disk space. Defrag makes fragmented files contiguous again and makes files access faster and therefore the hard disk works less harder.

The first thing is always make sure that you dont got any trojans, viruses, worms, or spyware on your computer.

www.avast.com Offers a HOME EDITION free Virus scanner,
Download this
Install
Remove your computer from the internet, and do a FULL SYSTEM SCAN

Step 2, would be just cleaning out the files and cookies on your computer though internet explorer.

In Internet explorer click on "TOOLS"
Then "Internet Options"
under "Browsing History, under the general tab click "Delete".


Please rate me and give me feed back, ty for your time and I hope this works for you.

Have you gone to the acer site? and second question I too have an acer and I got rid of Vista is this what you did or did the computer come installed with xp. If it did make sure you have the Microsoft hdd coded driver installed. It is available by googling "hdd audio driver" it will send you to microsoft to download. Also make sure you have completely deleted the previous software before loading the new one they will conflict and load on top of each other. Hope this helped..Take care.. Be mucho blessed..Mark
