Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hey there, I have an Acer 5570Z that was running MS Vista from new. Well like many others i know i also am not happy with it. So i removed the HD, Removed any recoverable files etc. I then formated the HD to prepare it for a reload with MS xp pro. I loaded the xp CD in preparation to boot from it, I have tried several approaches & still have had no luck. The CD ROM makes a few noises, you can hear the fan start accordingly, the screen remains black & nothing happens. Have you any direction to rectify this problem. Regards, Grant

Hi,

are you familiar with the hard / cd rom drive dip switch jumpers? sometimes you have to change those around a few times for windows to submit, theyre the tiny black little pieces of plastic things next to the ribbon cable or power cables on the back of the drives, they pull straight out with needle nose or tweezers. if you look on the drives you will see a diagram for them, the hard drive usually is master , cd drives slaves, and cable select mode I think that setting means that you can then change the drive config via bios, but not 100% sure. Maybe try plugging two hard drives in and one master one slave, like that to unravel your problem. also Im hearing in order to go back to xp you have to do it microsofts way exactly via internet or something.
good luck!

After installing vista service pack 1 my dvd rom is gone.


Download the latest driver for dvd rom from Acer that will work with Vista SP1. Also try uninstalling the device in device manager and restart your computer. Vista may find "new hardware" and install the driver from its driver pack in SP1.

Asprie 5570Z wifi drivers


That laptop came with 3 different internal WiFi cards.

You can look on the bottom of the unit, and it "should" have a sticker / label telling you which one is installed.

Once you have figured out which card you have, you can get the drivers for the card here, under " Drivers and utilities - MS Windows XP". the wireless drivers are at the bottom of the list from the dropdown box:
