Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

3 Answers

Sound i brought a acer aspire t180 in april 2007, and have rescently sent it from windows vista to windows xp. It installed xp and all the drivers except the audio driver. If anyone can help me find the driver, i would be very thankful. p.s. i have already been on to the acer website and tried to download it from there but an error comes up. It says: "failed to download. the operation timed out" if anyone can translate this for me aswell, it would be very useful

Two possible reasons for a time-out. Your current ISP is slow or the download page could not be found & timmed out.

This file is 100 MegaBytes! That is a pretty large file. Do you have a fast connection? I was able to download the following file:

from the following link: (I am not sure if this link will directly connect you)

Make sure that this is the same file that you attempted to download.

You might try from a different computer, and save to a zip drive, then plug in to your laptop, and try to install that way. Good luck!

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.

Problem with acer aspire t180, SOUNDCARD don't work0.

If running XP:

Two things to check

Open Control Panel and select Sound and Audio. In the new window select the Audio tab and make sure your sound card is selected as the default playback device.


Open Computer management, click the plus sign by "Services and applications" and highlight "Services".
Scroll down to Windows audio and check that the service is started.

.Its also possible that a windows update caused this (sometimes malware or virus)

Hope this helps

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 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.

Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers

My problem was with the T180 was the VGA support under XP. Reinstalling the Chipset drivers fixed that - audio and ethernet still broken but I'm using a wireless adapter for networking and I have separate sound care for sound - but anyway the link is:

I downloaded and installed chipset for XP 32 and it worked fine - presume the same is true for the Home Edition drivers.

I did try the pdf index suggested by a previous poster but I found all the links to XP drivers were broken.
