    Is there something wrong with Acer people, why is it so hard to find XP drivers for Aspire 7720G???
    Does anybody know where XP drivers can be found?

    why is it so hard to find XP drivers for Aspire 7720G?
    Acer has not provided XP drivers for the aspire 7720 because it didn't come with XP, it is only available with vista.
    For instance my 5102 when it first came out had XP MCE2005 then later versions came with vista home premium so acer have provided drivers for both operating systems. However the aspire 7720 was only shipped with vista on it so acer will only provide the vista drivers. If you want to put XP on it then you will have to find drivers on your own, its unfortunate but that is the way it is.

    If you want XP drivers I would suggest you check the different notebook component(chipset, wireless, audio etc) manufacturer webpages and look for XP drivers for the components in your notebook. If they don't have any drivers then you are stuck with vista.

    Actually, if you would have done a little more research before you purchased the notebook, you wouldn't be in this situation. The specs show VISTA as the only OS Acer has for this model, so Vista is the only OS it will support.

    Take some personal responsibility here. Acer did say VISTA ONLY, by not offering any other OS for this system!!!!

    That's not quite true
    I ordered an 7720g from laptopsdirect and they offered to 'downgrade' to Windows XP Pro for 185 - where were they gong to get the drivers from?

    Make sure Acer will support the downgrade.

    Actually you may find the bulk of your drivers on your notebook. When I decided to dualboot XP and Vista on my 7720G (Vista preinstalled) I ran into the same problems. I could boot up in XP but couldn't use the USB ports, graphics card, card reader, etc. One day, while in XP (on D drive), I started going through the C drive (Vista) file by file. I found the bulk of my drivers there along with their Vista counterparts. Total Commander is a good tool for this. Then I just ran the setup.exe files for everything marked XP and HEY PRESTO... it worked!!! Only missing then was the driver for my graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 8400). Theat I got from some boffiny people. I wish I knew how to upload it to share it with you guys. Now everything works a charm.

    Don't let people tell you that you can't put XP on a 7720. That's absolute rubbish.
