Re: drivers

Go to the manufacturers site
look under support normally
enter the model of your computer normally
enter the OS of Windows XP

Find the drivers

I can assist with the search if you provide the manufacturer and model of the computer

I want to reformat my acer aspire 4310 vista ultimate to winxp but unfortunately when im on reformating stage it says that "no disk found"...please help i need it badly my laptop....thank you...

I believe that this is because XP doesn't have any support for SATA drivers which is why the interface is saying that it can't find the disk. You need to slipstream the SATA drivers onto a copy of the Windows XP installation disk, if all of this sounds horrendously complicated don't worry as there are plenty of great guides online which will walk you through the process step by step. This site looks to be a good starting point but you will need another working pc/laptop in order to download and install Nlite, download the relevant SATA drivers and create the bootable disc. Good luck.

some of the hp laptop does not allow you you to down grade to XP but if you like you have to download Easus Partition Magic Software to get the other volume or in other words to split your volume in to two then you have to install XP in other Partition/volume and if you will do that you might not find the drivers. anyways this is the first method. second method is to install virtual server on your machine like virtual Machine or Virtual Pc and use Xp while you are in Vista.
hope it will help you. thanks.

Microsoft updates

If it just started to do this due to some update, a simple System Restore to the day before this started.

Instead of dealing with such workarounds, it is probably better to use Parental Controls (Vista), the replacement for it (made for Windows 7, compatible with XP) or software like Cybersitter, netnanny etc.

Anyway hopefully a system restore will work, but the update will return (if you want to keep the system fully updated as you say)

  • Start
  • Programs
  • Accessories
  • System Tools
  • System Restore
This forum will have more and more family security articles soon

in XP Home individual updates can be removed by going to Add/Remove Programs and clicking Show Updates (not recommended unless you are certain what updates do and how it will affect the system)

Hope this helps

Make sure that youre not using the same printer drivers that you were when you were using XP. Uninstall them. Go to and get the Vista drivers for your printer. Intermittent problems have been reported with most of their printers if the drivers haven't been replaced.

How to install driver in preinstalled vista in notebook OR download xp driver

No vista drivers will not be supported. Recently i did the same thing and ran into troube getting back to vista. Your best bet is to download software updates that are compatible with vista, most things are now. Or if you want to install something if you right click the intall file first and got to properties, then compatibility and change it ro run in xp sp2, apply, ok. see if this helps
