Specs: Windows XP, 512mb

Basically i had linux on my Acer Aspire one, i installed XP on it but it removed all my drivers from the computer. Now i cannot access the internet from that laptop, the Wireless Network adapter that is built in wont turn on. I'm also missing the VG controller and ethernet controller. Also in device manager i dont have a network device or network adapter tab. ( <--- cant remember name there . )
can someone please give me some help :)

Yes, it would remove the drivers because drivers for Linux will not work with XP - you should have clarified that before ditching Linux.

Anyway, you need to check out the Acer website. As your machine came installed with Linux, you might not find Windows drivers immediately available, but if you start by putting in your exact model number (there are loads of them for the Aspire One) you may get lucky, otherwise you may need to do a bit of research & find out which is the comparable model that would have come with XP in the first place and download those.

There are XP drivers for the Acer Aspire One since XP is now an option. Make sure you get the ones for the hardware in your machine.
