Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

Error loading operating system - Windows Xp


If you are attempting to use Recovery and this is happening, Most likely you have a corrupted recovery partition....

If you are attempting to load Windows XP from A CDrom (Externally)
you will need to use an XP Cd that has integrated Sata drivers.. Windows home/pro 32bit does not..

Or Use a Windows Media Center Edition Version

Virus


Don't reformat it just yet. Tell us what OS you are using, and I can try to help.
I will assume you are using WIndows XP or Vista - what you can do, assuming you have kept your PC up-to-date, is try to run the inbuilt Microsoft anti-malware program.
Click Start, Run, type MRT and press Enter or click OK.
You should get the February 2009 version of the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Do a quick scan and see what comes up. If anything is found, reboot and repeat the process doing a full scan (can take several hours).
That should fix and remove the most common virus infections. Let me know how you get on.

If you still need to reformat, you need to use the Dell recovery CDs that came with your laptop. These were a blue recovery/drivers CD and a purple CD for Windows XP sp1 or a green CD for Windows XP sp2. Not sure about other versions of Windows. There is no magic button to reformat with Dell laptops.

Unfortunately, you will need to purchase another operating system disc, even though you have the product key. That key is assigned to the disc that came with the machine. Why exactly did the Xp disc of your father's not work?

Need a good laptop


After doing some searching this is the closest one I can find. It comes pre-installed with Vista, but includes a down-grade CD to XP Pro. Its the Travel Mate 5720-6337. I can get this unit for $1399 plus shipping. If you would like the Media Center version of XP, it would be an additional $120, and if you would like for me to pre-install it for you, it would be $250 instead of $120. If you are interested, feel free to contact me and we will make arrangements.

During the windows installation, did you delete the partition, recreate the partition, format, then reinstall?

Sometimes viruses can last through reformats, but deleting the whole partition, then recreating it can fix the problem.

Wrong widows for this coputer


Hi, You of course have the prerogative of shifting your Windows to basic XP SP2 since the standard pre-installwed Windows in an Acer Aspire 5050-3242 is Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition. But since it is brand new and I assume recently purchase, why not simply return it for replacement of another unit, model or brand. If you feel that something is not right, then probably for a few dollars more you can get another brand/model more to your liking (test before leaving WalMart). Good luck and kind regards.
