Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Bios update I have an acer aspire T180. I just installed 2gigs of pc2 8500 ddr 533 and it only shows it as 400 so after some reading i flashed the bios. Now, I didnt realize that it would not flash if i did not turn off the bios protection in the bios when i first boot up but for whatever reason it still said it had updated it and needed to reboot. After it rebooted everything looked fine but no programs will work. no matter what I click on it just hangs. I cant even restart without pulling the plug. Any ideas as to what happened or how to fix it? Also, everything seems to work in safe mode. Thanks in advance.........Tim

    the problem is, it wont open any programs. Anything I try to open just hangs. I cant even open task manager. I cant understand it. It was working fine and the bios chip protection was enabled in the setup when i tried to flash it so im not sure what could have changed

    after you mentioned using restore i tried going in through safe mode and it worked. wow! I have been working on pcs for years and love em but damn they can make you crazy!! Thanks for the insight, i probably would have ended up doing a full format and reload instead of the easier obvious choice of restoring. Sometimes the easy choices are the hardest to see.

Roll it back, do a system restore to yesterday or whichever day it was ok. You can go nutso trying to correct a bios problem, if you can get aroundit with a simple restore. You sound like you know how it's done but just in case ill run it down for you in the intrest of saving time. Start, Programs, Accessories, System tools, System restore, good luck, Gym

Bios update failed *flash*

Did you make copy of your original bios before flashing...if yes then reflash with your original.
If No then trying reflashing again making sure no power cuts, dont touch computer until flashing is complete.
Are you using the correct bios for your MoBo?

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:

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:

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

Hope that works
