First with the brightness it is most likely that you just need to use the key combo aka FN and a nother key to turn it up some times it is just the up key sometimes it the 1 or 2 key look closely at you keyboard and look for blue sysmbles on it. Is it 32bit or 64 bit and what is your spacific model number (on the bottom of the laptop, is also called a service tag or code)

Do a windows update and update your video graphics card. If its ATI, go to amd.com. ATI is under the umbrella of AMD but there are various companies out there that produce graphics cards

Hi

Please can you try the following

1) go to www.devicedoctor.com
2) Download and install the device doctor software
3) Once installed open it up and click scan, it will then scan your PC for the best driver
4) Download the driver (entitled VGA driver) and install
5) Restart and see if this cured the issue

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

1. Go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
2. Download the latest version driver, extract to flash disk.
3. Connect your flash disk when windows said that driver is missing (before enter vista serial
number) and browse to "IDE/WinVista/sataraid" windows will choose the driver that it need,
install it
4. The process will continue as usual....

Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers


My problem was with the T180 was the VGA support under XP. Reinstalling the Chipset drivers fixed that - audio and ethernet still broken but I'm using a wireless adapter for networking and I have separate sound care for sound - but anyway the link is:

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html

I downloaded and installed chipset for XP 32 and it worked fine - presume the same is true for the Home Edition drivers.

I did try the pdf index suggested by a previous poster but I found all the links to XP drivers were broken.
