Download drivers from acer website and store it on flash or separate Hard Drive.
go to bios and change the last entry in advance section to something AHIE to IDE (not in my mind now) by this the setup will detect the hard drive. Next: Prepare Winxp CD and load the Winxp as usual.

First of all, find out if there's XP drivers available for your laptop. Many new ones don't have. Installing XP without working drivers becomes pointless, as your laptop won't run properly without them.

Can't perform acer aspire recovery management to my acer aspire 4730Z laptop


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Are you currently running Windows XP or Vista?

If running windows Vista, press F11 at startup, before the flashscreen appears. This will prompt the laptop into a factory restore mode.

If using Windows XP, you will need the restore disks. Most manufacturer's do not provide these with the purchase of the laptop but you can obtain a copy from the by calling their support or visiting their website. I believe the require shipping charges but do not charge for the software.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Acer 4720z wi fi driver on xp Os


Hi There, since Acer do no release a wlan driver for Windows XP, you need to use the driver for Window Vista. If you do not have the driver for Windows Vista, you download it from here . After finish downloading, then un-zip the file. Now let's start to install the wlan drivers. Go to your "Start Menu", then "Settings", "Control Panel" then "System", system properties windows will be pop up. Then select "Hardware" tab, and then click on "Device Manager" button. You will then see "Device Manager" windows. Look for your "Network Adapter" and you will see your wlan network adapter with red cross mark.Right click your red crossed wlan adapter, then select "Update Driver"
You will prompted with "Hardware Update Wizard" then select on "No, not this time" radio button and click on "Next" button. On next windows, select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" radio button and then select "Next" buttons.
Then another window will pop up, then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install", then click on "Next" button. Then you will come to this windows "Select Network Adapter", you will see you existing network adapter that do not working, then select "Have Disk", and browse to the location where you have unzip the driver. Then Select the appropriate driver for your laptop. Acer Aspire laptop 4720z come in 3 wlan varian, Intel chipset, broadcom, and Atheros and I don't know which one is on your laptop. Just try one by one if you are not sure, it's only 3 to choose from.
Hope my solution could help you out.

Shut the notebook completely down. Now turn it back on, and as soon as the Acer screen comes up, hit the “F2′ key to enter the BIOS. Navigate to the second page of the BIOS (titled “Main”) by pressing the right arrow key.

You may wish to turn of “Network Boot” by selecting it with your arrow keys and hitting enter, then changing it to disabled. This is often used in a cluster-lab environment, and for normal users only slows down your boot process.
You must now turn on the F12 Boot Menu by selecting it with your arrow keys, hitting Enter, and changing it to “Enabled”
Now switch to the “Exit” page, and hit Enter to “Exit Saving Changes”. The BIOS will ask you to confirm, tell it “Yes”.
Now the notebook will reboot, and you must hit F12 to boot from your CD.
On the “Boot Manager” screen, chose the second option which should be an ATAPI drive, such as a DVD-RW or CD-RW, highlight it with your arrow keys and press Enter.thank u,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Acer aspire 4315 note book


Hi,

I am assuming that you downgraded to Windows XP. For the WinXP sound driver of a Realtek Audio as used in an Acer Aspire 4315, pls try (ftp://202.65.194.212/pc/audio/WDM_A405.exe). Should you still want the Vista driver, pls download from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
