Specs: Windows 7 to Windows XP, AMD Phenom II X3 N830 / 4GB DDR3
My Acer Aspire 5552-5615 crashes when i try to install Windows XP. I get my laptop to boot by disk, then the blue background appears and loads the files, then about 2-3mins into it the computer crashes to a BSOD. I've went to the drivers section of the Laptop(at the Acer website) and updated my Bios to 2.09 (which specified the Windows XP fix) however that didn't work. What can i do?

This laptop has: 4GB DDR3 Memory, Ati Mobility Radeon HD 4520, and AMD Phenom II X3 N830 Processor.(3core).

When you get the BSOD, you will see a stop error. Search for the error in Google. Is XP the original OS that was on the laptop when you bought it?

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Acer does not show any drivers for WinXP.

WinXP does not natively support SATA hard drives.

You may need to slipstream the chipset drivers. Even then you may have issues with the wireless and the sound.

Why are you going backward? See the links below.

I've had the habit with my old PC's to try them out with XP, and 7. mostly Hoping i can get Windows XP so i can play higherend games slightly better. If i recall correctly Vista/7 use a tad more ram than XP does, and im hoping it'd help improve gaming performance, as well as surfing online. :/ i've set my settings on Win7 to look like win98.
Also I've heard of Slipstreaming, but i dont know how to do it. Know how i can findout?

Go to the link below to the nliteos site. Very simple to do.

If you perform a slipstream be sure to include SP3 if it isn't already integrated into the file on your WinXP CD.

You can download the distributable version of SP3 at the link below.
