Changing operating systems on an Acer 7520 - Computers & Internet

Posted by on

  • scudspud Jul 18, 2008

    My acer 7520 comes with Vista pre installed, i hear lots of complaints that Vista hogs too much resources and downgrading to xp speeds up this laptop considerably.

    1gb ram

    120 gb hard drive

    AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core tk55 Processor

    Is it possible to Format my hard drive and install xp ?

    thanks for your help

    When I hear Change OS, it means a different vendor, to: UNIX [flavors], Windows [XP, Vista...], Sun.

    If you mean UPgrade? We would very much like to know what is prompting the question.

    Basically, get the upgrade CD and run it. IF you change OS types as assumed above, the software that you have [documents maybe too] will need to be changed. Generally not considered worthwhile for novice users.

My acer 7520 will not boot up it sas error bootconfiguration data

Oops! that is serious. It means it cannot find a portion of the boot sector on the hard drive.
If you have a system disk, boot from that and when prompted, repair your system.
When it is working, run CHKDSK/F as there are possibly hard drive sector errors that cause this sort of error.
Hope this helps.

I have had my acer 7520 for two years and in that time it has chewed through 6 hard drives! Is this normal?

If your spending that much replacing these drives,i would try to download some engineers type tools to tell you the processing actions and hard drive functions etc(try diagnostic tools for your model)
Then try to get operating information from your manufacturer.

Where do i get complete empowering technology programs for acer aspire 7520g for windows xp

Hi there. If you go to the Acer website, you can download it from there.

Here's the link:

Just select your model and operating system and click on the Applications tab. You may need to select 7520 and not the 7520G, as I can only find it for the 7520. It should still work fine.

Hope that helps
