If the machine came with vista, you can't get the drivers for xp, sorry. I'd go with win7, better than vista, and you can use the vista drivers

I formatted my pc purposely to install windows 7.after this,windows fail to install so i re-install windows xp.after this my wireless fail to work.when i tried it says'no supported wireless adapters...


If your computer originally was shipped with Windows XP pre-installed, and you used the "System Restore" CD/DVD disks that were shipped with the computer to reload Windows XP, the correct device-driver for the wireless-adapter should have been automatically installed.

If you used a different disk to reinstall Windows XP, then you can try two things:

1. Access ACER's web-site, do a search for your model, and see if the web-site offers the device-drivers for Windows XP for your model, or,

2. use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the Internet, and access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com and do a "Custom" scan. When the scan completes, click the "Optional Hardware Updates" section, to see if Windows Update is offering a device-driver for your wireless adapter. If so, select and install that adapter.

Next...browse to the unzipped folder and choose the "WiSVHe5.inf".
Ignore XP when it complains.
Reboot.

Want to install xp on pre-loaded vista acer aspire 5720


That should not be a problem. Just ensure you have the XP drivers (not saved on puter) ensure bios is set to boot from cd format drive and install.

I tryed to install win xp to aspire 5720 but i can not


Was Windows Vista installed before? If so, it is impossible to install it. From personal experience,I do not even recommend the Dual Boot as it messes up the two system files and everything will eventually fail. If you had any other OS installed, you have to do an initial Back-up when you buy it. This is because the factory image includes all drivers necessary for your computer to run. If you try to install another OS than the one pre-installed, the drivers will be missing. There is also the fact that laptops tend to have SATA drives which are only detected with Windows XP PRO Service Pack 3. If you don't have this Version of XP, it won't detect your hard drive.
Hope this helps.

How to downgrade acer aspire 5720 vista to xp


Hi,
I just got my 5720-4126 so once I had to test the Factory re-install (ALT-F10 at the ACER screen) and knew I could get back to where I started (Vista), tried to install XP from CD. It couldn't even see the disk drive :-(

ACER Aspire 5720


Hi All,

We are a workshop in Spain & I have had several problems with "Down grading" to XP. There is essentially one problem which causes an issue with the XP installation & that is if the the BIOS has a "Fixed" sata configuration. By that I mean you cannot change it to some sort of IDE or P-ATA (Symantics). Our current problems are with an Acer 5720 & an HP Pavilion DV9700. The Acer solution is exactly as "kraken3000" had mentioned before:
1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

DONOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot. This setting must be kept untill you "Upgrade" (If ever) to Vista. The HP is another story...

Visit the Acer Panam site & download & install the XP drivers & your good to go...

I hope that this was of help...& good luck folks
