You may have to update Directx to V9 for XP, also check to make sure that the Acer meets the minimum system requirements that the game needs to run (will be found on the box or CD sleeve).

All I can suggest here is that you flash the bios to the one designed for Windows XP

Need DVD driver for acer aspire 5050


a DVD drive never needs a driver as these are build into windows (come with windows)

If you have a error condition in the device manager on the dvd drive status, driver corrupt? Then try these steps:

or you can also try reinstalling windows or using the restore discs to restore the machine to factory defaults.

Reinstalled Windows xp professional to my acer aspire 3610


1.change another Installation CD of Windows XP service pack 2 or install Windows Vista.
2. if any track of your CD is corrupted, then this type of error comes.
3. sometime if your hard is not formated correctly, then also some fatal error comes.
4. when formating always do full format, donot do quick format.

Blue Screen of Death


You'll need to setup the Acer laptop to boot from CD-ROM. Push either the F2 or F10 button when booting your laptop and it should bring-up the configuration management interface. Go through the options and confirm that Boot From CD-ROM is at the top of the list on bootable devices.

Next, you'll need your original Windows XP CD that came with the Laptop. Put it in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot your laptop. You will be given two options: 1) Re-install Windows or 2) Repair the existing Windows Installation. I recommend that you repair the existing Windows Installation as this will not destroy and data or device drivers that are install on the laptop.

Good Luck!

I don't think the versions of these applications change between notebook versions but just to be sure and if your system is not a aspire 5050 look for your computer here and then look for the edadasecurity management installation file needed for your windows version (xp or vista)

Do you have or did you make the recovery installation optical media [dvd or cds]. If you have the option to make the recovery media - you should do it now - as you may need to reformat the hard drive.

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
