Ok I am making the assumption that this is a windows XP machine. IF so, and you don't know the password to any of the accounts on the system, then you have 2 options, you can reload the OS. If you have not had the machine very long, and have all the Discs to re-install the software, this may be your best option. Otherwise you can download a tool to create a boot disk that will clear the password here

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.

Can you downgrade from vista to xp on an acer t180?


Of course you can.
The only concern would be drivers, but all drivers that exist for Vista exist for XP as well. Just go to Acer's download page (link) and download all necessary drivers before you downgrade. (this is especially important for your Chipset and LAN drivers, so you have them handy when you reinstall.

The site is a little it confusing, but after you chose "Desktop -> Aspire -> Aspire T180", you will see a small drop-down menu, where you can choose your operating system and your language.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I tried to upgrade my acer t180 to windows 7 from vista basic, no i"m having dmi problems... seems like it's stuck... help please


Hello kelajo34,

There might be a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the Acer T180 Vista Basic DMI. The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the Acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer T180 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

Also, It might be a good idea to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before upgrading from vista basic to Windows 7 on the Acer T180. The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor download link is at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b544e90-7659-4bd9-9e51-2497c146af15&displaylang=en

Try downloading the updates from the microsoft website directly rather than using the built-in windows update system.

I have an Acer T180 desktop computer, recently I changed the OP from Vista to XP, but now I'm getting problem to find some drivers, among others sm bus controlet, video controler, pci device,... If you can...


try uniblue driver scanner it worked well with my aunt's PC(HP)..but I think if ur PC was able to handle Vista try Windows & as it installs most of the drivers by itself or through windows updates(my own personal experience with Compaq notebook)
