Your printer should connect up to any USB port (small rectangular opening near where the monitor and keyboard plug in (same type of opening). If your printer is so old it has a cream colored cable and one end that has 25 pins sticking out of it, you will save money by just buying a new $30 printer. Anyhow, newer printers connect with a thinner cable like your mouse cable, is flat / rectangular on one end, and is kind of tall-igloo shaped on the other end.

If you go for the new printer, I used to hate Epson, but bought one December 2013, and it uses a lot less ink than my older Canon or HP printer. I bought one with a touch screen panel and it can print from my smart phone and all the PCs without connecting any wires. The one I bought was about $100.

Your PC has a very new wired connection (Gigabit LAN) for your home network; but unfortunately does not come with a built in wireless card. If you are also unfamiliar with the LAN cable, it is an RJ45 connector. Looks just like a phone cable, but 50% wider.

If this is unclear, feel free to add more detail or let me know what you need more clarification on.

All the best to you,
Kerry

SOURCE: want to add more memory to aspire t180 ast 180-ud400b

According to Acer's website, your system uses this memory configuration...

256MB DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM expandable to 4GB


My suggestion to you is, if you have the original 256 loaded, find a good bargain on DDR2 667, one gb memory modules and REPLACE what is installed, instead of adding to it.

If you add to it, and it is the incorrect speed (that's the 667 number), you may experience some very undesirable results.

good luck
tony

PS. This advice is posted assuming you are aware of the dangers of ESD, and you have some technical experience on the inside of a computer. If this assumption is false, please share this advice with your technician to get the correct memory upgrade.

I JUST UPGRADED TO WINDOWS 7, AND I HAVE EVERYTHING EXCEPT AUDIO. PLEASE HELP


As you probably know, Acer does not provide Windows 7 drivers for the Aspire AST-180-US340B, however, the Vista driver should work: http://www.acersupport.com/us/en/product_support.aspx?tab=1

If not, download the drivers from Realtek:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

I would set a restore point before installing them, that way you have something to go back too. Go to start > control panel > click on "system protection" in the left margin > then click on "create" in the lower part of the box.

How do I hook up my Acer Aspire laptop to my Epson printer?


You can hook up Acer Aspire to your Epson Printer Using the USB Port if the printer supports the USB port A type. I am not sure what model of Epson printer you are using. You may have to configure the printer either by going into add remove hardware and scanning for hardware changes and installing the Printer, or may have to put the Driver CD provided to you by the driver manufacturing company and install the driver which will also allow you to print a test page at the end of installation to give you a clear picture that the installation was successfull. Please ensure that the printer is connected to the laptop and is powered on while giving for a test print. Good Luck.

My Acer Aspire 180 ast power light flashes 4 times when I try to start it but it doesn't power up. I've unplugged the power and plugged it back. Can hear the fan start when I plug it back but it still...


Could be a faulty power supply or maybe motherboard problem.But I would open the case and clean the processor fan first as it could be a heat issue preventing start up.

Data off 486


If you really sure that the floppy is damaged and canot read even a reformated or formated brand new floppy then are only way out of this to get your files is networking (Assuming that the AST 486 does not have USB port or a CD writer)
  1. Use infra-red to network your laptop with another laptop to get your fules sent (Check i am not quite sure if hthis laptop model AST 486 have infrared, if it have a brown small patch on it around its perimeter then hurey it got it)
  2. You can use direct parallel cables to nework your laptio with anyother computer and get your files. please note you will need the parallel network cable and setting up the network (assuming you are using an old OS as well cause XP can configure your network automatically)
  3. If it has USB (which i doubt) the use a flash stick, or CD writer (I doubt again) then just burn a disk, or use an old external hard drive or external CD writer which comminicates throught the serial port.
