Default acer drivers

Hi. I have just installed windows xp pro onto a friends acer extensa 5220. It did have vista on but was riddled with viruses and he had lost the vista disc.
Everything has installed well apart from ethernet storage and mass storage controller drivers. Can anybody tell me please where I can find them. They are not on the acer web site, it only has them for vista not xp.
Any help would be appreciated.

Start with Acer Support - Drivers & Downloads. You have to go through the steps, notebook, Extensia, Extensa 5220. Then in the middle of the page you must choose the operating system, and voilą (Wa La).

Thankyou for your reply.I have downloaded them from this site but they are for vista and i have installed xp so they are not compatible. Any other ideas please.

Also i now have a yellow exclamation mark next to video controller in device manager.When i install the drivers for this it says the file or path is too long therefore cannot install. When i start up the laptop it says new hardware found but is not working correctly.
