Where have you downloaded the drivers from?, what sort of install do they use (are they an actual installation program or just .inf files)? You need to provide more information in order to get a useful answer.

You don't mention which exact model you have but most Acer drivers are in individual zip files. Once unzipped they should give you a setup file - double click that & the drivers install. Is that what's happening or at which step are things going wrong?

The computer is an Acer Travelmate 240 , I was able to get all of the drivers to install, except the sound driver, when I try to install that I get the blue screen of death and the computer repeatedly reboots until I go into safe mode and do a system restore to before the installation of the sound driver which is the intel 80281DB realtek AC'97 driver. I know I had sound before the hard drive went bad and I had to replace it which is the reason for a windows xp reinstall in the first place.

OK, that clarifies things a bit better. May be worth checking the sound driver is definitely the correct one as a quick look at the specs say it should be a Cirrus audio driver, available HERE - may be the same thing under a different name but it could be worth a try.
