Replace the Vista Home Premium with XP on ASPIRE M1202


Your best option is to upgrade to Windows 7. It is free for (I believe all) Vista users, and you can run programs in XP compatibility mode.

Acer extensa 4220 wireless problem


I'm not sure if you tried hitting the appropriate key on your keyboard to initialize your wireless network. Check your manual to see which key it is, it is not automatic. Also, make sure you have a wireless card. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system it will give you a list of all your hardware, Look for 802.11b/g that is the wirless.

Don't forget to rate this solution.

I have recentley wiped my harddrive and installed windows vista ultima my laptop is acer 5715z since i did this i cant find the options to turn the tapping off on my mouse pad it really gets on my nerves...


Sounds like the touchpad driver you have is not the right one. Having a compatible one and the right one is the difference between XP and Vista. Also, sometimes on some laptops above, or below your touchpad, there should be a button. if you push the button, it should toggle between on or off..Or try to disable the "tap" feature in System Configuration, Peripherals, Touch Pad and be sure to click "Apply".

You can modify the xorg.conf file as follows,
As root edit:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
In the touchpad stanza add the following lines...
Option "TapButton" "0"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
Then edit:
Option "VertScrollDelta" "0"
(if it wasn't already)
Save it, logout, reboot.

Last resort is to search microsoft knowledge base or your pc manufacturer. That seems to be a growing problem in vista but not seen in XP.
