Hello, i have problems to install 2 drivers on my old travelmate 654Lci. The old hard disk was not good anymore and i replaced it with a new one. I did a new xp professional(SP3) installation on it and i found the few missing drivers on the acer site. All went well but when i tried to install the Ati driver and restarted the notebook, i could not move the cursor anymore and do anything. I restarted, it was the same. Restarted again and went to safe mode, no problem and i used system restore. The same with the driver for the wlan. When i install the wlan driver first, there is no problem when the notebook restart. But when i install first a few other drivers, the same problem. The problems beging always after restarting. I tried also installing with XP professional SP2 but it is the same. I have got a legal xp professional(number on the original sticker at the bottom) and i did all the microsoft updates. Without the ati driver and the wlan driver is my notebook working well, but i want the wlan working. I tried also with a 3COM wlan card and when i install it, i have got the same problem. I want to give the travelmate to my grandchild(9 years old) but i want to find a solution for these problems first. I tested the ram(512Mb) with memtest and there are no errors. I do not know what to do now. Thanks for the help.
