Unfortunately, I'll have to suggest that you reformat and start your re-installation process again, but this time use the exact same disc package that you originally received with your laptop when you bought it. In which case I don't understand why you had to download everything because it should be on those initial installation discs. If you don't have those, then you should buy a complete Operating System package rather than find out what driver is compatible with what because that's a very time consuming task and may never really work out in the end. Either way, it sounds like your OS is not installed properly and that's why the D drive isn't recognized. Once the complete OS package is installed properly, the D drive should be okay as I don't believe it would be a hardware problem if it's an OS setup issue. Good luck, I hope it all goes well for you.

You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

Hi there. I have an Acer Aspire 5600AWLMi, I want to format my laptop and start everything from scratch; reinstalling XP and all the drivers in it. Two problems: 1.Don't have the Acer Recovery...


You need to replace the DVD reader or use an external one, and obtain a windows install CD. Enter your model number on the acer website to get all of the required drivers. Obtain the drivers and put them on a CD before reformatting as you will not have the wifi drive to go get the drivers if you try and get the drivers after you format.

Hi

two options

  1. The original restore dvd / cd can be used to format and restore the computer to the original state it came on.
  2. Use the windows installation cd, format the hard drive during the setup and then continue with installing windows, at the end you will need the device drivers and those are available at http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

Sounds like the driver is missing. Do you have the driver disc, if you do then reinstall it. Have you also reinstalled the program to run cd/dvd ie Nero. You should have all the drivers on a disc that came with laptop. If not, try going to the following site and see if the missing driver is available.

Failing that, you may get it at one of the driver download sites
