I couldnt completed the xp installation after upgrade bios from acer website (3810 flash). i've try lot of time try to reinstall back xp including the creating cd method, but still fail... please help me..
Try clean install but you will need the xp cd- when entering cd choose destructive recovery.............you will need the cd for this however you can also try turn nb off/restart and when booting up hold f11-start recovery from here.......when you do any of this you will lose any data you have previously installed yourself-this system will reinstall factory settings....if you have important data on your system back this up first!!!!! good luck

The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM
module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2
cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.
Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics
accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the
laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the
* But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM
* If you want to play 3D games with better performance,
switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!
You can get all the XP drivers for your 5100 series there. Bios also.
If the upgraded bios does not fix it then go to control panel, system, device manager, hardware and uninstall the dvd player all together. reboot. If this does not fix it go to the dvd players web site and download a FIRMWARE UPGRADE FOR IT make SURE IT IS THE RIGHT FIRMWARE FOR YOUR DVD PLAYER. Match all numbers and letter that id your drive. Good Luck.
Please rate me.
Your not alone in this type of problem. When it comes to computer (laptop especially) they usually have a "Max allowed ram" most times its listed in the back of the manual in small print. Its a way to keep people buying new computers (if your into the conspiracy theories) Chances are even a bios upgrade would not fix your problem. Mostly BIOS upgrades add support for new boot options, plug and play support, and fixes to bugs in older versions.
You can check aspires/acers website for updates www.acer.com If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.
