Unfortunately, you may be out of luck. :( The newer 64-bit operating systems have trouble running the older programs that were designed for 32 or 16-bit platforms. You can try this however: open control panel, click on 'Programs', then click on 'Use an older program with this version of windows', follow the prompts and be sure to choose "I want to use the program in the CD drive". Good luck!

Yeah, windows did not install correctly the first time around & you need to reinstall with a format. Isn't there anyone you know who has a real CD, (Do not take a chance with a copy) you can borrow? Call you're brother or email him & ask if you can get his CD again. You can always but a windows CD. The price has dropped alot since Vista hit the market. Click on this link.

(Do not buy Vista), unless you like problems.

Acer Aspire 5050 Won't Boot.


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.
