    Hi there,

    The disk with XP on it you will need to have the cd key to reinstall and this means all info you have previously installed will be wiped from the current XP installation.



    What to do from here????? Theres lots to do......



    Put in your XP disk in to the cd tray.

    change the bios boot up to cd/dvd,

    to do this hit the F1 key when start up happens and go to boot sequence and change it to CD/DVD,

    hit the F5 or F6 to take this option to the top of the list then save and exit,

    when you accept these changes and restart will happen automatically.



    The windows screen will start and check your current settings and devices on you machine,it will start the windows loading process.



    it will now load windows and ask if you want to repair your system,

    Select to install a new install over the existing,

    select the drive and delete the current info,

    then it will ask if you want to select somewhere to install the new info on to the unpartioned drive,

    select enter on the drive you wanna use,

    and then it will format this drive,enter L and its going to delete it,

    wiping it clean for the new windows

    this process will take about 30min approx,

    let it finish this process and make sure you have the cd serial key to finish this process.



    It will prompt you before starting up windows and it will ask for your computer owners details,network settings etc....waiting waiting....



    Finally after all this info is done the windows screen will open up and its just about time to go to the internet to download the drivers for this machine

    much easier if you had the acer system cd,,,,,,

    but the internet will help you finish this step.

    or

    Go to www.acer.co.nz

    then go to service & support

    Next drivers download section

    then a screen opens to help choose the correct model and make

    eventually it will take you to the drivers and applications page

    download from here is free and you dont need to sign up to join or use these web pages or the Acer info either



    Notes - NEW XP INSTALL should take bout 30 to 40 min

    then the drivers download will be straight forward too

    updates are next from the windows update site,SP2 is needed for high speed devices and SP3 disables some of them,,,,



    I really hope this helps fix you problem as you already rated me,

    Next step is to do a back up onto disk so the reinstall is quicker in future,



    Once all is working the way you want it to,do a system restore.



    Find this function by going to start,

    then accessories

    then system tools

    and then restore.



    Good luck and happy surfing,Cheers MISTERDJ
