    On start up, the fan starts, the dvd  makes  sounds,  then nothing...just a black screen. Power(green light) is on.  Green light on dvd, but won't open the tray.

Sorry about my bad english, I have this issue with an aspire 5610: windows xp begins to start but after inital drivers loading stops with a blank screen. This appens starting with xp cd too. No safe mode....


I expect there are missing drivers. Check on the Acer.com web site to see if XP is supported and then if it isn't, load Win7 or Vista.
Hope that helps.

Hi am mohamed from qatar.am stil using acer aspire 5641 desktop computer with vista .so I need to change my operating system to windows xp.plise tale me how can I install windows xp for my computer?


Firstly, you should be aware that XP may not support all the drivers for your laptop. You may have to download the drivers fomr the Acer website after you change to Windows XP.
Firstly, make sure that you back up all your documents.
You will then have to rebooot the PC with the XP cd, and tell it to boot from CD. The boot menu can be accessed by pressing F2 or F12 as your PC boots up, it will show as you start.
Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XPA clean installation consists of removing all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.
To perform a clean installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Back up all important information before you perform a clean installation of Windows XP. Save the backup to an external location, such as a CD or external hard disk.
  2. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  3. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  4. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  5. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
  7. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.
If you have successfully installed Windows XP, you are finished. If these steps did not help you install Windows XP, go to the "Next Steps" section.

Acer Notebook 5610Z - Want XP Drivers


if your currently able to surf the internet with your vista os id suggest downloading the drivers for windows xp from the manufacturer onto a usb storage device like a thumb drive or external hard drive(hdd).
after you have all the drivers you'll need have:
the windows xp disk.
1)before you restart the computer insert the windows xp disk into the cd-rom

2)resart the computer

3)when the computer starts to post press the appropriate hotkey to enter the bios(usually f1,f2 or delete key) it'll tell you on the splash screen.

4)check the boot order in the bios making sure the cdrom is the first boot device. if it is press f10 to save and let the computer boot.

5)on the upper left of the screen you'll see (boot from cd)press any key(hit a key quickly)
windows xp will then start loading on the computer.

6)windows will look for previous installations of operating systems and display them on the screen

7)click on the partition w/the current os (when you click the os will be highlighted)

8)xp will give you the choice to install delete or format the current partition

9)choose to delete the partition

after you delete the partition windows will show a matrix of the hard drive without partitions (RAW SPACE)

10)highlight the raw space
11)choose create
