I wonder have mylotters encounter the following problem before. Problem: I switch to IDE Enabled mode in the BIOS and installed Windows XP successfully, manually install drivers of Acer 8372GT until I encounter a PCI Device driver appears as exclamation mark in the device manager. I tried to install the drivers which created from the eRecovery application but no positive results. In addition, there are some drivers such as Conexant Audio driver, TPM, Intel AHCI drivers are unable to install. If I were to switch back to AHCI Enabled mode in BIOS, it will appear blue screen and restarts automatically. Maybe a bit of specifications may help: Intel Core i3 2GB of RAM. I can only remember the above info as of now. Has anybody encounter this problem before? How do you solve it if you encountered it?

There is no problem with your laptop. The only problem you have is the driver of your operating system. Windows XP has old IDE drivers and you have to separately download and install drivers for SATA. You should try Vista or Windows 7 OS. They both already have SATA drivers in their installation discs. When you install Vista or Win7 switch it back to AHCI Enabled mode which is faster than IDE mode. I would also prefer going with Win-7 which is in way much faster and stable than Vista and comparable in speed with XP.

Thanks for the response, it has been solved via installing KB888111 driver from Microsoft.

if u r installing original windows, default the bios and reinstall window. if pirated, change cd . 80% blue screen is result of faulty RAM .
