I have just formatted my drive and reinstalled windows.
I find that some of the drivers need to be installed. I have a Support Driver CD 200-0083v26 which I know I can use, but am not sure which drivers to use. In device manage under other devices I have error messages “Multimedia Audio Controller” and “Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
To which drivers on the CD do they refer please?
Thank you very much. Axis STR Plus (Sep 06) No AX1534000664-KIT

Re: Drivers need installing
Hi. You need to install the sound card drivers and the video card drivers. I cannot find any reference to your cd, so I cannot tell you which folders they would be in. Have you tried using Windows Update to see if it finds your drivers? They would be listed under Hardware, Optional on the left once Windows Update finds the updates you need. Give that a try and let me know whether it works or not.

Hope youve got your windows CD or can borrow one you need to boot from CD or DVD then format it and reinstall from scratch. Your windows product ID should be on a sticker under the laptop. Another thing once you reinstall is drivers because most times windows doesnt install all of them. If windows installs your internet connection you can get drivers from windows update otherwise use another PC copy the drivers to CD or flash drive and install them that. Feel free to message if you need more help cheers from Scott and plz vote
Reinstall windows is one to the wipe out process. Once you have reinstall the windows all date stored is your laptop is lost. You need to delete the drive D during installing process. Wipe out is not totally cleaned your laptop reinstalling windows provide a new copy of operating.
Put a Windows XP disk (has to be the full version not an upgrade) into the CD drive and the computer will ask to "press any key to boot from CD". Press a key. Follow the prompts, It is important to delete the partition when asked. Then recreate it. Format the drive with NTFS file system. The setup will go on to reinstall windows automatically.
Now, the only challenge is to reload any software drivers for components Windows does not find automatically. This is a little tricky. Do google search of Acer drivers or go to www.drivers.com.
Also, remember all your software programs need to be re-installed. For example, your Microsoft Office (word, excel, etc). Any games, any virus protection, Quickbooks, etc. The printer software also needs to be re-installed. Hopefully you still have the original disk or if its a Hewlett Packard go to their website.
If you do not have the drivers for the devices that are installed on your laptop, then download from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site, make sure they are for your model laptop (eg. Video, audio, modem LAN etc.) before you format and reinstall Windows..
Follow these steps.
1. Boot up the laptop and press F12 function key to get a list of boot devices, select the CD drive.
2. Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD drive.
3. Press the space bar to start the bootup from CD
4. During the install process you delete the existing partition/s and create a new partition.
5. The next step is to format the partition - do a NTFS full format not a quick format
6. Follow the instructions to install windows.
7. After Windows completed the installation ,check on which device drivers didn't install and install these drivers.
First put the hdd installation cd into the cd drive and try to boot. This should install the hdd driver as well as start formatting the new hdd. After the drive is formatted take out the hdd cd & insert the Windows installation cd into the drive. Boot. Windows should start installing on your new drive. After Windows is installed check the Dell support site for updated drivers for your system. Install drivers as needed. Any other software you had on your old drive will need to be reinstalled to the new drive. Hope this helps & please rate my answer. Thanks.

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
