Two possibilities here:

either the drivers were never installed in the first place but I take it from your comment that it most likely was working. If it never worked then try installing the correct drivers

secondly, the built in audio card has failed. If this is the case then you will need to install a PCI audio card as a replacement

I have an Vista running Acer Aspire t180 desktop that i bought in 2008. i would like to restore it to its factory settings but i have misplaced the restore disks and Alt-F10 does not work. My eRecovery was...


Your options are either go to Acer for a replacement Vista recovery DVD or
Install a borrowed Vista DVD, must be same Vista Basic, Home Premium,
then use your registered CD key, normally located on the side or rear of your tower.
It will also tell which Vista type you have. You then must go to the Acer support site
and install then drivers for the componenets in you computer.
You will not have any other software installed that may have come with your
original setup from Acer. This option requires more work on your part, but
no cost to you. Acer will charge for a Recovery DVD, plus S&H.

Replace the Vista Home Premium with XP on ASPIRE M1202


Your best option is to upgrade to Windows 7. It is free for (I believe all) Vista users, and you can run programs in XP compatibility mode.

Hi there,

dont worry your not the only person that has had this problem i had it too along with others,

theres no ways round it, either go to the acer website and download the drivers, or simply reinstall vista.

downloading the drivers may not work, as the hardware ay be built for vista.

No universal serial controller on my acer t180


Hi there. You need to update/install your chipset drivers.
This link will give you the chipset drivers:

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=3703&formid=3394&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2

You should notice that this driver is for XP. It should still work, but there is currently no chipset support for Vista on your product. If the above drivers don't work, then you can download the BIOS update from here:

http://www.acer.co.uk/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3734&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=17&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3734&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=3713735360

You will need to select your specific pc (Desktop, Aspire, Aspire T180), then click on the BIOS tab, download and install.

Hope that works

I would suggest going with XP Pro first off but what you need to do is get into your bios and change the boot priority to the cdrive as the first device then harddrive as second. Put your XP disc in and reboot the computer after a few moments you should see press any key to install ...... this will start you off with the install from here on follow onscreen instructions.

Onsce at windows desktop you will need to get a ton of drivers and this is were the fun comes in. Use support.intel.com for all intel devices inside the system. After that you will have to goto your device manager and see what still needs to be installed. Now you will have to hunt down the manufacures websites and go to there support page and get needed drivers.

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.
