  1. did you install the chipset drivers and SATA drivers?
  2. Right click my computer, click manage, click device manager, see if there are any yellow question marks or exclamation points.

    i had the acer driver cd with the laptop and it had all drivers in the xp folder
    i installed all of them and all hardware including the keyboard hotkeys is working ok

    but the overall performance is not upto the quadcore mark

    thanks for the reply
