PC is hang up about 5 mins after boot up.

I just recently have reinstalled window XP Prof on Acer Aspire T180 with Window Vista originally. Every hardware works fine. I downloaded all the drivers for Window XP from Acer website. However, the PC just keeps hang up on me after 2-10 minutes after boot up. I have to Power cycles it to get it starts again. Any helps will be appreciated. Thanks

    Thanks, but I just find out that the PC seems to hang up on me whenever I tried to use the DVD drive. I tried to burn a DVD, and it would freeze after finished burning DVD, or when computer first boots up and I try to access to the DVD drive, it would hang up to. I now think that it could be a bad DVD drive. I will swap it with a different DVD burner and test out. Any suggestion? Thanks

    I too have exactly the same problem on my brand new Aspire but am finding that the PC's also hanging when I'm not using the dvd drive. I've also had it hang on me when copying files from a USB drive and when installing a service pack from the local HDD.



    I downgraded the PC from Vista to XP Pro in an attempt to overcome the dreadful performance I was seeing with the Vista OS and since then I've found that the machine hangs at random intervals. I'm guessing that there's some kind of subtle incompatibility of driver somewhere here rather than a hardware issue because there was no hanging problem when Vista was installed. I've been careful to use all the XP-specific driver downloads from the Acer site.



    I'll reinstall XP Pro again and will test to see if the issue can be replicated before any Acer drivers are loaded. That'll help me to understand whether Acer's drivers are introducing the issue as a part of the machine rebuild.

In response to my original comment I found the solution to my problem by contacting Acer who took the machine back, as it was still under warranty, and replaced a bunch of components including mobo before returning it to me. PC has worked like a dream after that. Great service by Acer btw.

Sound is not comming when i change window XP from window vista


Your PC requires a more recent soundcard device driver that is compatible with Windows Vista.

You can download the required driver here-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html#driver


Please be aware that there is a different driver for Microsoft vista sp1 and above as opposed to Microsoft Vista. SP means service Pack which is a combination of updates supplied by Microsoft to make your operating system more reliable, secure etc.

If you do not know whether you have SP 1 installed, click on the start menu, right click on the computer and click on properties. Your Windows operating system is now described in the top of the window. It will say something like Microsoft Vista or Microsoft Vista SP1.

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 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)

Need Drivers


Actually you need to install chipset drivers first then you shoud try for additiona PCI driver like external sound card.
Try one thing again, go to your www.acer.com site and search driver as per your "Service tag no." not for model no. and download drivers for 'Chipset' and others as per your requirement.
