From the official Acer site, I've installed the following drivers:
  • Atheros WLAN XB63 Driver 5.1.1.9
  • Audio Driver Realtek Ver.5.10.0.5273
  • Camera Driver Suyin Ver.5.7.8.3
  • Card Reader Driver 5.1.2600.2011
  • Modem Driver Foxconn Ver.7.48.0.0
All of the other needed drivers I installed are from their official sites. But I did not install the touchpad driver nor the LAN driver.

Hi,

I need help regarding my laptop

I have some problems with my Aspire 5051 AWXMi(is written on stickers) or 5050 that is written on sysyem propeties.
I had installed Vista Premium, i tried to install XP but when it reaches to install devices, at half way, the laptop it turns off.
I tried severel times but no hope.
I have updated the bios from v.1.3303 to v.1.3315...besides i have the issue with the battery as wel but to install the OS first and afterwards i will see.
The 80 gb hdd was partitioned in three: PQ..i do not remember, the restore part. and two other partitons of around 40gb FAT32.I deleated all partitions thinking to get rid of vista, and to install one partition only
Did i do something wrong?
I can i install the os again?

Thanks in advance
