    i have just bought a new computer with windows vista on it and i have had nothing but problems. including getting the blue screen of death 3 times. slow computer drivers crashing and many others and i was just wondering if i can go back and format my computer and reload windows xp on it or if my drivers wont work because i got it with vista on it. it is an acer aspire ast180-es340m. when i go to get some support everyone wants $200 from me and i dont have that much experiance.

    If you just bought a pc that will not work, I'd send it back for a replacement.

    just for question. why would that not work? acer still sells my exact model with windows xp so i was thinking the drivers should support xp.

    It will probably work fine . . but you are likely to have the same problems with XP that you did with Vista.

    Those kinds of errors on a new machine, are a pretty good indication of hardware issues. That's why I would take it back
