Acer Aspire 5552 Windows XP Drivers

I need to get Windows XP working correctly on the Acer Aspire 5552-6838 laptop. I has an AMD Phenom II X3 Mobile Processor N850, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 video card, Acer Nplify 802.11 b/g/n wireless, with an AMD M880G chipset. I have been searching all over with no luck whatsoever. What is the best way to go fourth with this?

Have you searched the Acer site?

If no luck there, conact Acer directly and ask wherre they keep the drivers at.  Should be a no charge call.   You definately do NOT want to get them from some third party location.  So even if Acer wants to charge $30 or so for the information.....
I see your issue now, it appears there are no pre-7 drivers out there.

What stops you from moving to 7?  Is it a personal preference or software issue?  If software, won't it run in compatibility mode?
Open the Device Manager, click Start then Run and enter devmgmt.msc
Right click on the device and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID string.
Then paste it (Ctrl+v) in your reply.
I will try to find your drivers for you.
