wow i feel smart :)
now note how i did this with professional, not media center edition
i have successfully downgraded my aspire 3680 to xp professional edition, and i am very happy with the performance. acer DOES support xp and all the drivers you need ARE available on http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3680.html. before i did anything, i downloaded all these drivers that are for xp. (you do not need the vista drivers) i burned these .zip files to a disc. now restart your computer. when the white ACER screen comes on when it first turns on, hit F2 to enter the setup menu. go to the boot section, and put your CD-ROM drive up to number one. save these changes and let it restart. now, insert your install cd. close the screen that asks you what you want to do and restart your computer again. now when the computer starts, it will say "press any key to boot from cd...", hit any key. now it will ask you what partition to install it on (hit the c drive as its the primary drive) and format it in the NTFS file system. (a quick format works fine.) let xp install and it will restart. when it asks to boot from cd again, do NOT hit anything, just let it start. xp will boot up. now, put in the cd with the drivers, and unzip and install them. (some of mine had errors, but these drivers are not necessary.) restart to finish the installation and everything will work right.
now i did have to do a little trick in order for my broadcom 802.11g to work right. in the taskbar by the time, there is a tower icon. open this program (called Broadcom Wireless Utility) and uncheck the box "Let this tool manage your wireless networks.) you will immediately receive signal (if you have a router or wi-fi) and will allow you to connect.
if you have any problems doing this you can e-mail me
or i have aol instant messenger

So you just did a reinstall of Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. You can actually download the drivers for you laptop at this location: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4M_8600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
Now about the items listed:
1.) Multimedia Audio Controller = SIGMATEL STAC 9750 AC97
2.) Network Controller = Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller (wired)
3.) PCI Modem = check out the list since there is a lot of items listed
4.) Video Controller (VGA Compatible) = check out the list since there is a lot of items listed
One way to find out the correct driver is by checking the details of your computer at this link: https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?~ck=ln&~tab=2&c=us&l=en&lnki=0&s=gen just enter your service tag.
Otherwise, please contact Dell Technical Support so that they can give you the information you need and they can even guide you in reinstalling the drivers.
Hope this helps!

**Even though your computer may SAY that it is a Presario V2000, it may have an entirely different product number for downloading drivers specific to your particular configuration.**
1) Look at the serial code on the back/bottom of your computer: there is a number starting with p/n (ex. p/nEX664UA#APL) This code identifies your computer beyond the V2000 label.
2) Go to the compaq/hp website: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support
3) select "Download Drivers and software(and firmware)"
4) THEN, enter your P/N Instead of "Presario V2000" into the product name/number box, and hit enter.
Select your operating system, and you will be redirected to a page listing all the necessary drivers for your model.
On the left of your screen, you will see a box that says "your product" with a picture of a laptop, and a model number beneath it. THIS IS YOUR ACTUAL MODEL NUMBER (Mine was Compaq Presario V2610CA Notebook PC).
5) Download and install the drivers you need, and gappy geeking!!!
