http://driverstock.com/Acer-Aspire-5100-driver-download/4-21-12867/index.html so ..my advise is to reinstall the windows xp ...cause this machine it was on xp from the first ...and this might be just the reason ..those are the drivers for it also ...you can download Everest software ...and locate the exact name of the wifi platform ..and look after that for a vista driver for it by its name ......this way you cant be wrong ...cause you locate the suitable driver ...not the ones they feed us in packages...
Welcome to Vista. Windows Vista is automatically set up to power down after you have left it alone for too long. If you press the power button everything should be fine. Otherwise tell me what happens.
If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run.
When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode.
Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots.
Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
