Hi, my Acer T310 used to have the Windows Vista system, but it is too slow, so I changes it into Windows XP. After installing XP, the system has no sound, I install the sound card driver, which is realtec 97, but it still has no sound, when I check the hardware directory, it showed that, the sound card is already installed. Now, each time I restarted the computer, it reminds me that my SM bus controller, and VGA controller drivers are not installed yet, but I cannot find the proper driver. So how can I solve the no sound problem, thank you very much for the help.

Hi, The acer aspire M5641 , usually ships with windows Vista. If you are planning to install windows Xp. You would have to source the windows xp cd. You cannot buy the XP cd from microsoft as windows xp is now and end of life operating system and not sold off the shelf. However if you already have the XP cd with you , you can use the same cd. Note hardware on your acer may not work , because of driver unavailability for XP operating system. However if your system was shipped with , refer to the following video links to guide through the reinstall process
hi, the best solution of that if you are using the windows xp operating system you just install it again the windows it will automatically repair your system. if you are using vista try to recover previous files..
No matter what you do, you need to partiton and format the drive and install an OS, be it with the Acer recovery disks or with an original XP install disk. You will need to boot from your CD drive to install the OS, if your drive is not bootable you will need to boot from a floppy and load drivers for the CD drive.
