Problem installing vista on a acerT310

Hi there ,I just bought a acer T310 off a mate which i am going to set up as a media center, I have tried to put my vista ultimate on it but i get a "setup exe application error" then it restarts, why would this be? Its not the disc as it works fine on my other pc, maybe the T310 is underpowered whith ram? As far as i can see the box has intel celeron prosessor and 256mb of ram. Any help would be apriciated.

    Could be the cd drive, the laser may be going weak, also make sure that your hard drive is being recognized in the computer, you can verify this by pressing F2 to go into the BIOS and looking in there on the main screen. If the hard drive is being recognized then try taking a can of air and blowing some air into the cd drive to make sure dust or any other debris is not on the laser. That can cause cd's not to be reading as well.

ACER T310
Operating System

Windows XP Home
Windows XP Professional
Windows 2000 Professional


Please try to check/review the product manual (if there's any), if the system motherboard supports Windows Vista Ultimate; as per my research (from Acer site) the above enumerated OS is applicable to this Acer T310 model. best regards

My acer t310 no sound.. maybe because i didn't install sound card or something


You need to install the audio drivers for your computer. This can be found on the disk that came with your computer. Click here to download the audio driver On-Board Realtek RTL8100C. Or you may need to install the Onboard C-Media Audio driver it is located a third from the top. Depends on the audio controller used on your mainboard. Try the Realtek one first, if this doesn't work then try the C-Media audio driver.

Thanking you

You need a higher computer specification for Windows 7.

Acer Aspire T310 is design only for Windows XP Home/Professional and Windows 2000 according to Acer Support Page:

Any help building a media center box


Are the video card drivers installed? depending on which card it has its either a Ati card, sis or Nvidia. you can get the drivers for it from here

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t310.html

That is most likely it - the cpu is enought to run video. I have 512Mb on my old laptop and it plays video perfectly I think your going to upgrade this ones memory so it wont be a problem.

Cpu is good enought to play dvd and video.

Video card if no drivers are installed then it will be very sluggish and poor quality. if even after the right drivers are installed depending on what brand and model card it is, it may be too slow or the issue maybe in codec and media player.

try installing FFDSHOW into the computer and see if it improves (it wont help if the drivers aren't installed for the video card so make sure that is solved first) Download ffdshow latest here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=4786&s=50 (for other users: its the latest version at the time of posting on may 18. check google for new version)

if you need to find out what video card the computer has you can use a program like http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html <- everest home free.

My Acer Aspire T310 won't go past the Acer screen and the Keyboard and Mouse don't work


Yours may be a little old computer and the cmos battery (on the mother board)is drained out. Replace this battery. You need a working keyboard.

Need a good laptop


After doing some searching this is the closest one I can find. It comes pre-installed with Vista, but includes a down-grade CD to XP Pro. Its the Travel Mate 5720-6337. I can get this unit for $1399 plus shipping. If you would like the Media Center version of XP, it would be an additional $120, and if you would like for me to pre-install it for you, it would be $250 instead of $120. If you are interested, feel free to contact me and we will make arrangements.
