Is WIFI installed and ready to go withthis OS?


The OS itself does not contain wifi. Wifi is hardware that is installed in the device. AS far as the OS is concerned, yes the OS does support the wifi networking protocols. You MAY have to load the wifi adapter driver(s) for you device if Windows does not have a native one that is compatible, however. You can determine whether or not the driver is installed by going to the DEVICE MANAGER and looking at NETWORK ADAPTERS. If there is no wireless adapter present or there is an exclamation mark alongside the adapter, then you need to load the driver to get wifi functionality within the OS.

Reinstall windows 7


Most laptops have what is known as a recovery partition on the hard drive. This partition has a mirrored image of the factory-installed original configuration. Check your users manual to see to how access this partition. If you can boot Windows, some manufacturers have set up the ability to do the recovery from the OS. If the OS is so badly messed up that your can't boot to it, there is usually a hotkey combination that you press at bootup to get to the recovery routine. You may also have received or made a set of recovery discs when you purchased the laptop. These can also be used to return the unit to factory fresh condition. If you have neither, you will need to use a Windows 7 Installation Disc. This will install the OS, but will in most cases, not have all the drivers you will need to activate all the installed peripherals such as network NIC, sound, bluetooth, etc. These drivers can be found and downloaded from the manufacturer website. You need to know the Model number of the unit and the OS you are trying to download drivers for.

No the hidden partions rely on the main partion to have some files still intact to complete a repair of the operating sytem then restores the files back to thair factory settings, to put xp back on you will need the factory recovery cd or dvd. If you buy a copy of xp and install it then ust eht recovery it should restore it to factory with drivers as well.

Hello antonhs2000,

I assume you went through the direct instructions located HERE. It does not suggest a restart anywhere on the page, so I would suggest doing that. I have always made it a habit to restart my computer after uninstalling drivers and installing drivers as well just to be safe.

My laptop says windows error recovery


The Windows Error Recovery message can appear for several reasons- an improper shutdown, new software, new hardware, etc. Since trying both options that you are given doesn't work, you need to troubleshoot the Windows startup error. If you have recently added new hardware, disconnecting or removing it could solve the problem for you as it might be creating some type of incompatibility.

Troubleshooting Windows Error Recovery: Last Known Good Configuration

You can attempt to boot up in Safe Mode and select Last Known Good Configuration and see if that works to resolve the Windows startup error. Turn the computer on and immediately begin to press the "F8″ key. If this does not work, you might need to press the "F2," "F10," or "F12″ key. Once you see the prompt screen, select "Last Known Good Configuration."

Troubleshooting Windows Error Recovery: Booting up from the Installation Disk

If that did not work, try booting up the laptop using the Windows installation disk - provided you still have it. If so, follow these steps:

1)   Turn the power button to your laptop on.

2)   Immediately insert the Windows installation disk that belongs to the laptop.

3)   When you see the option for "Check System," press the "ESC" key. Next, press the "F1″ key. Your laptop should now boot up.

4)   You can now use the "System Restore" feature to allow your laptop to return to a previous setting when it was functioning properly. This might mean selecting "R" for recovery.

You don't say what make/model of network adapter (NIC), whether it's wired or wireless, or if it was operating under the same service pack level before, so I have to make a lot of assumptions.

Is Windows really not recognizing it (ie: does it have an exclamation mark next to the NIC in device manager?) or is it being recognized by Windows but just cannot connect to the wireless router? If the latter, check your wireless configuration (SSID, WPA key, etc). Since you have WinXP SP1, it could be that there is not a driver for that particular NIC. Later service packs include updated drivers as well as bug and security fixes. Recommend you identify the NIC and if you have the driver disk for it, go into Windows device manager to select a reinstall from that disk. If you don't have it, use another computer to download its driver and after installing it and getting Internet access, you should also download and install the latest SP, which would be SP3.

Hello,

You are trying to install windows xp? The normal windows xp cd will not have drivers for newer laptops. You will get this error message.

What you need to do is to try using acer recovery instead.

Acer machines should have a build in recovery, hold down ALT and presson F10 repeatedly when you power on the machine, keep pressing every 2seconds until acer recovery comes up, if it doesn't come up then yourmachine probably doesn't have that option, the laptops mostly have it.

If you are unable to do the above then you may be able to order recovery discs from ACER --https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=Acer
