That doesn't sound to me, like you're using a legal version of windows 7 ultimate.
Correct me, if I'm wrong.

Before you downgrade to XP check whether Acer has drivers available for XP for your laptop.

Most OEM suppliers tend not to support older OSs. This will therefore be problem for you if that is the case.

Alternatively if you are having problems with you present OS you could use the recovery options built into your laptop and recover to factory defaults.

Bear in mind that if you do this all your personal data will be lost. So backup before you do it.
