Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.
Your problem could be windows vista isnot installed properly
i assume in the beginning, your laptop come with windows xp.
if you want to go back to windows xp, you can still use alt+f10, as long as you don't delete the recover partition.
Just boot and press Alt+F10, it'll give you recover screen.
firts put the original harddrives back in place :) then you need to enter the 3000's bios If I remember right thats done by pressing f2 or del in a acer. it should tell you what button is correct on the bootup screen.
Then you need to change the boot order to haveing the dvd/cd drive before the harddrive, since right now its booting strate from the harddrive.
Then you should be able to restore the operateing system with the disks that came with the laptop and or from a normal xp or vista cd/dvd.
