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.

I can't use Wifi in my laptop since I had to format my laptop before its first use as it was in German language. No CD's were provided to me by Notebook beligeers. So, what Should I do??? Mu...


It seems you cannot use your Wifi cause you have not installed the correct drivers or the wifi card is switched off.

you can find drivers here -> http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers
just choose in the boxes Notebook->Aspire->Aspire 5750G->Wirelesslan driver

maybe this link works straight

or....2nd solution is that you have the driver installed but you have a program of Acer controlling the WIfi card. Check in Control Panel-> Network connetctions if a Wireless Network adapter exists and is disabled.

Hiya ive just installed silent hunter 5 and it seems the graphics cardbisnt good enough is it possible to purchase a better graphics card as this laptop is only a couple of months old?


Unfortunately it is not possible in a lower end computer. Lower end computers have integrated video cards on the motherboard. High end gaming laptops typically will have a replaceable graphics cards but generally run over $1000 (for the laptop)
Anything with Intel graphics chips are so so terribly sub par to even the cheapest discrete graphics cards I'm afraid.
You can build a budge gaming desktop for around $700.
Comment back if you have any questions.

I have acer aspire 1641 and i want to make it wifi hotspot. but my wifi icon showing "no wireless adapter in your system" but i checked specification of my laptop and it has wifi card. plz plz...


Did you reinstall OS? It is possible that you forgot to install correct drivers for this device. You can check this by going into Start>right click My Computer>Properties>Device Manager>Check if there are any yellow icons. Also check under Network Adapters if the wifi is installed.

If it's not installed then you need to download the correct driver from Acer website.

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us
