Some Vista driver may work on XP, however, to avoid any risk of getting in troubles with your Windows xp installation, you can download drivers and utilities for XP starting from this page.

As long as you have the information backed up that you need you can install just Vista. When you do the Vista install you will just format the drive. Formatting the drive will erase everything on the hard drive. Then the installation will keep going and install a fresh copy of the Vista with the resource DVD. I said DVD, because Vista is usually on a DVD. Vista is a very large O.S...

Now if the Vista Disk has upgrade written on it, you will have to install it over the Windows XP. You do this by inserting the disk while Windows XP is running to get it to work.

Please rate this as fixed if it solved you question.

If you have more questions about this ask them before you start anything. I do not want you to mess your computer up.

    Here is the direct link for your drivers. This link will put you on the exact page that you need to be on. It explains everything that you need to know.
    If you already have the disk you really do not need to go to the link. You asked about the formatting. It seems like you know where to get the drivers because you have already installed XP and you have the original Disk that came with the computer. You should be set.
    Just follow my directions and ask me anything else about the installation that you need to know. I will be glad to help.
    I f you have solved your problem, Please rate this as fixed.

Does acer aspire 4315 wire less net supports in win7 ? ?


As of the moment there is no driver support for the Acer Aspire 4315. If you have already installed Windows 7 and you can connect to a cable internet through your Ethernet Port, you can try downloading and install Driver Genius Professional which can assist you in getting the compatible driver. Since this software can detect even unknown devices.

Restore to factory default


Unlike other laptops, Acer notebook/laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer Aspire 4315 to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer Aspire 4315 laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer one to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer Aspire 4315 is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your notebook data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.
