Yes, you can install XP on it, No, you can't "keep" the drivers..

You can download the XP drivers right from
Acer. Just choose drivers & downloads, notebooks, then the Aspire 3690 series.

Where do I purchase OS for Acer Aspire 3000 PC notebook?

You can purchase any OS you want to run on your Aspire 3000 notebook. You need to make sure that you have enough RAM (minimum necessary specs are on the packaging of the OS) to run some of the OS's available, most notably Vista and Windows 7, I'm sure you could run XP without a problem if you so wanted.
You can buy any windows OS from any computer/office store such as staples, however I would recommend buying from amazon or some other online store to get a better deal.
please rate my solution

WLAN problem

Yes this is an OS problem. Mostly laptop vendors like ACER expects that the OS is Vista or Windows 7.

And these OS have default drivers of WLAN but unfortunately Windows XP don't have these drivers.

So you have only two options.
Either to upgrade your OS or to search for valid drivers of WLAN of Win-XP on Acer's website.

Please rate this solution properly if it was helpful to you.

Acer Aspire 5315

I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

Hope this helps. M~

I can't download music

What matter here is not the brand of laptop or pc you have. What you've just encountered is the compatibility of its software on your OS and to other Media software. so you should decide which is more convenient for you to use then install it, but be very careful, make sure that your OS will support it, otherwise you are just installing a trouble on your pc or laptops.
