Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Audio/Video questions Hi everyone, I've got a t180 and I'd like to hook it up to my 5.1 receiver. The t180 is specifically the UA380B, as far as I/O goes, there's a headphone and mic jack on the front, and on the rear there's a mic/line-in/speaker out as well as jacks for rear left, right, and subwoofer.  My receiver has inputs for optical, digital coax, and regular RCA red/white. What's the best connection I could make from the computer to the receiver? Does the PC only output analog? Is there a way I can get digital 5.1 to my receiver? Also, I'd like to be able to hook this computer up to my TV to act as a display, I'm assuming I'll need a video card for that. What's a cheap, effective card or other solution? Thanks!

Re: Audio/Video questions

As to your audio the only way for you to get 5.1 is to get a sound card that supports it i think the computer you have only supports 2.1. you can find a cheap sound card at places like tigerdirect or newegg, also try ebay. same goes for your video you need to find one with a tv output.

After installing XP pro on a Acer t180 that had Vista basic on it to start have lost the sound. Hardware device manager shows no driver installed for audio device on hd audio bus, under heading Sound...

Hi there,

theres no ways round it, either go to the acer website and download the drivers, or simply reinstall vista.

downloading the drivers may not work, as the hardware ay be built for vista.

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

hope this help please vote for me.
