Two weeks ago, I bought an Acer Aspire Laptop 5745G that came with Windows 7 pre-installed. For our project reasons, I had to install Windows XP 32 bit on it. Once installed, I realized that I can not get the Nvidia graphics card to work. So I called the acer support. The transcripts of the acer support staff is located here:
