I see you mentioned that you are having issues with you computer going into a blue screen then it restarts.
You can try to boot into safe mode to see if Windows Vista will Load without having the bluescreen and if it will not shut down or restart, from Safe Mode, try and do a system restore to a data where the problem has not happened yet.
From there-on see if the issue will still happen or no
Getting into Safemode: restart PC keep on tapping F8 on your Keyboard this will prompt you options, Look for Safemode then press enter this should bring up the safemode screen.
If during the loading of safemode and still happens are any error show up or it goes to a blue screen, you can try going into safemode with command prompt. to get to safemode in command prompt just do the same as ging into safemode and select safemode in command prompt.
once in the command prompt Type CHKDSK , then press enter it should check the system for 5 mins or so depending on your PC/Laptops speed.
if still the issue is the same reformatting or restoring your windows back to defaults may fix the issue.
Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott
The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.
A full video showing how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfU9TXIAd4
Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore. This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!
Restart the computer is Safe Mode (press F8 when booting to get a menu of options). This will start the computer with the minimum number of drivers and "extras" being loaded. From here you can press Win+R to bring up the Run command and enter 'msconfig' and press Enter. From this tool, you can allow your normal startup programs and device drivers to load. You will want to keep anything related to your DSL drivers disabled for the time being. Then restart the computer normally. If everything loads as it should, you can keep going back to the MS Configuration utility to add other drivers and programs one-by-one and retest (reboot again) to make sure everything is working properly. Once you know what the culprit is, you can uninstall that program and reinstall the Vista version if required. (If it is just software for your DSL modem, it probably is not required under Vista.)
Take out the hard disk put it on the externaslcase hard disk and format the disk wipe all data from it , and chek the bios seting, put the bios on default seting than you will be able to instal wich OS you want. chek if you have enogh ram for vista , if no put XP not vista. wen you will have more than 1GB put vista.
The Windows installation disc has an option to keep your existing files when migrating to Vista, but unfortunately there is no way of keeping your applications. These will need to be re-installed. You might want to make sure that they are all Vista compatible before making the switch!
