Your brand-new disk-drive probably has a SATA interface, whereas Windows XP expects that it has an PATA interface.

Thus, the Windows Installer does _not_ load the device-driver for SATA devices, and therefore "cannot find" your disk-drive.

Reinstall Windows 7 -- it's a much-better Operating System that the long-in-the-tooth Windows XP, and it will include support for all the other devices in your ACER that Windows XP will *NOT* support.

Hi,

You can reinstall the sound drivers from the Acer recovery management, to do so:
Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> Restore Application & Drivers> Contents> Select Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam and install it

OR

Got to http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
Select the computer model
Select Operating System installed on your computer
Click Drivers
Select WebCam (Acer Crystal Eye) and download it.
Once downloaded, install it on your computer.

Thanks and regards,

My acer aspire one has a hard drive failure on the following disks IDE/SATA.I diagnosed it then got the following report. HDD doesn't respond to system commands Boot sector damaged read time...


You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

Acer Aspire 4315 when i formatted the it is shown hard disk drivers not detected quit or restated the system.


If you are formatting this model Acer usinf the Windows XP installation CD then Windows cannot detect the hard disk because this Acer uses a SATA hard disk and Windows XP cannot detect a SATA hard disk. The Windows XP installation CD does not include a SATA driver in this CD.
To format and install Windows XP on your Acer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Formatted acer aspire 5736z with windows 7 ultimate and finished but operating system not loading and takes me to recovery screen tried recovery but still takes me there again and again, tried to boot...


Please take a close look at the disk you are using to install "Windows 7 Ultimate". It is definitely a "Recovery Disk" for Windows 7 Ultimate. You cannot install Windows 7 with a recovery disk. Recovery disk always is used to repair corrupt or damaged files of Windows OS and requires that the Operating System is already installed. You need a "Windows 7 Ultimate" Installation disk to install Windows not a recovery disk for Windows.
