EVA-01 Posted April 13, 2008 Report Share Posted April 13, 2008 (edited) Hello all, I have an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop that came of course, with Vista. I do not mind vista but my friends and I wanted to install XP instead, so i have. Here is the problem. When I open the device manager, I have the yellow markers for VIDEO CONTROLLER and VIDEO CONTROLLER (VGA COMPATIBLE). I have tried EVERYTHING. I have tried to install every set of driver that claim to be compatible with this POS. All I EVER get is the Nvidia splash and then the same error saying that it cannot find a driver compatible with my hardware. I have tried modded .inf files with the same result. The Vista drivers of course fail because it does not find Vista. I have tried going into device manager and using the update/have disk method, which always gives me the error "no information about the hardware was found." This is with OR without modded .inf files. I am about ready to beat this stubborn thing into dust. I have successfuly put XP on two HP laptops that were "vista only" as well as a Dell desktop and an Acer desktop. I have no idea why this horrible waste of money is being so stubborn. Please do not direct me to the 160 drivers and modded inf because I have already tried all of those too. I also tried the actual acer drivers for this specific laptop from the acer site for THIS laptop WITH XP!!!! I am tired, and tired of this thing! Please help.
