Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

1 Answer

Pesysd@hotmail.com Hi. I recently bought an acer aspire 5720 that came with vista home premium. I repartitioned my hard drive and deleted the pqservice (hidden) partition. After that i installed vista ultimate and then I tried to install acer erecovery but i got the following message: "not d2d system, erecovery cannot be istalled". D2D recovery is enabled in bios and i haven't any recovery disks. Acer support site says that erecovery needs a specific partitioning structure to work, so i thought that creating a partition with the same size as the pqservice partition (around 10 GB in my model) at the beggining of the hard drive erecovery could work. So i use acronis disk director to do that but i have the same result. Please tell me if there is a way to install erecovery. thanks paulo

I bought Acer aspire 5738 recently i want to know wheather it will accept XP OS?please give me the clarification


yes it definitly will since you recently bought it,all operating systems will be supported by your laptop that were launched after 1998,so if you just bought a computer it definitly will have windows vista,if it has windows vista it will support windows xp,cauz vista is just a higher user interface than xp,in laymans terms it just needs a higher amount of ram and a higher processor,any old p3 or higher can run xp

Hi i need to format my acer aspire 5720 and i am just wondering are the drivers preinstalled on it


Hi,
If you format the hard drive you will lose all software including the drivers. Make back-ups of the drivers before formatting or you could also download the latest drivers for your particular model from www.acer.com.

Best wishes,

Seems like you need todo a fresh installation of windows, either Xp or Vista to get rid of the issues you have now, after that you need the drivers for the laptop

even though it says vista, if the driver name has XP32 or XP64 in the end it means the driver will also work with XP

Acer aspire 5720


thats because Acer put their own screen saver on when building them, it's not part of windows.

I'm sure a google search will come up with an Acer screen saver

You'll probably find this website most useful. This website was designed for users who want to dualboot that already have XP on their machine. There is a link to a how-to for users who already have Vista installed and want XP also. Good luck and I hope this helps.

ACER Aspire 5720


Hi All,

We are a workshop in Spain & I have had several problems with "Down grading" to XP. There is essentially one problem which causes an issue with the XP installation & that is if the the BIOS has a "Fixed" sata configuration. By that I mean you cannot change it to some sort of IDE or P-ATA (Symantics). Our current problems are with an Acer 5720 & an HP Pavilion DV9700. The Acer solution is exactly as "kraken3000" had mentioned before:
1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

DONOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot. This setting must be kept untill you "Upgrade" (If ever) to Vista. The HP is another story...

Visit the Acer Panam site & download & install the XP drivers & your good to go...

I hope that this was of help...& good luck folks
