Question about Acer Ferrari 4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 5630

Having problems with Vista. The laptop came with a XP but also came with a Vista upgrade disk which i installed..

An update came through from Microsoft which i downloaded and installed. One of the updates was for Service Pack 3.

Now everytime i restart my laptop i get a message on my screen saying '

Installing service pack..Stage 3 of 3..

It then goes from 0% to 99% complete instantly and then it restarts the system so the updates can be installed completely. Then when the system reboots it tries to update service pack 3 yet again and it then just gets stuck in an 'update/ restart' loop.

Help!

Seems like your VISTA upgrade didn't sucessfully upgrade itself from XP to VISTA. Seems like M$ update program detects your OS as XP and tries to install the SP3 for XP. VISTA only has SP1 released. Its currently stuck in a loop that it doesn't know what to do. Restart your laptop into safe mode by pressing F8 before the VISTA loading page comes up and go to Safe mode and backup your data and use the ACER RESTORE CD OR ACER RESTORE METHOD to help you reload your system back to factory defaults then upgrade back to vista without install any updates or connecting it to the internet.

This is my best solution to get you out of this weird and unusual situation.

I have a acer laptop model aspire 4730z windows vista to xp


I think you want to change the operating system from vista to xp, simply re-install xp operating system and it will work but before doing that do check if your model supports xp or not...if it does then you can check for the driver from www.acerpanam.com
