If you go to the Vista control panel, double click on the system icon and then click on device manager do you have a yellow question mark next to the DVD/CD-ROM drive? If you have, right click on the name of the drive and select the update driver software option when you're connected to the internet and Vista will then search for and install the latest driver release. If that doesn't work, make a note of the manufacturer/model name and do a search for the appropriate Vista drivers and install them yourself.

I removed vista and put an original licenced windows xp pro but the dvd does not work and it disappeared from the bios


Vista is proprietary, you need to go out and find the correct driver for that CD-RW/DVD-ROM for that Acer PC.

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4520-notebook-technical-specifications/ for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Toshiba a200/205 series Hard disk is toshiba mk1246gsx need compatible driver for windows xp I need to convert my OS from vista to XP


Well... this is common on newer laptops. It is due to the fact your HDD is SATA (Serial ATA) and Windows XP CD does not have the drivers needed to recognize it. The solution I use is a bit High Tech: to remaster your Windows XP CD including the drivers needed. Or, just settle to live with Vista until January, when Windows 7 will be available to the public. If you are not faint of heart, google this: nLite; with this program you can remaster your XP CD. (You need a working PC with CD-RW to actually do the job).
