Are you sure that you are installing the proper driver, I mean are u installing the driver for windows xp? If you are not able to install in the proper manner. Do like this Right Click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>Display Adapters. If an yellow exclamation mark is shown then it means that you have not installed the driver and if its not showing any confilct (yellow exclamation mark)then you have already intalled the driver and your video card is also working perfectly. And the problem could be something else. If confilct(yellow exclamation mark) exits.. Do like this. Right Click on the exclamation mark>Update driver>Not at this time> Install from a specified location>make sure u have checked "search removable media..." and make sure that u have put the driver cd in the cdrom and click next. If you have put the correct CD then windows will automatically install the driver for your laptop. During the installation if system shows a message "This driver is not digitally signed..." Click continue anyway. If none of the above things work. Download the latest drivers from the net. -ShaC

Windows xp home edition reinstall

If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.

Acer aspire 4720z audio driver for widows xp home edition sp2

Have you gone to the acer site? and second question I too have an acer and I got rid of Vista is this what you did or did the computer come installed with xp. If it did make sure you have the Microsoft hdd coded driver installed. It is available by googling "hdd audio driver" it will send you to microsoft to download. Also make sure you have completely deleted the previous software before loading the new one they will conflict and load on top of each other. Hope this helped..Take care.. Be mucho blessed..Mark

Windows XP winsrv.dll file won't install

hi bcookie11,
if your windows xp installer is a legitimate one, return it and ask for another copy, sometimes, the cd is faulty, that is why you can't copy some files from it.
