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.

Downgraded from Windows Vista Home to Windows XP, no sound.


Go Here courtesy of Acer Support:

http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

Then Choose Desktop, Aspire, M1100.

From this point choose Windows XP Home Edition. There will be two audio drivers. One says Realtek and the other says Foxconn.

Choose to download Realtek and save the file to the desktop if you can. Then after its done downloading, you can double-click on the file and install it and see if windows picks up on it.

If for some reason it doesn't, then download the foxconn and install that one. I remember that most of the Aspire's had a realtek sound driver chipset.

It should take to one of them regardless.

do not downgrade, if you don't have WIndows XP software.
you can not dowgrade Vista to Windows XP.
copy all the data from your computer and store it on a DVD or CD.
inssert the WIndows XP, reformat and install, (just following the instruction on screen).
you can upgrade from WIndows XP to Vista, not the other way around.

Yes you will get all the drivers here
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4315.html
However only Vista Premium and Vista Ultimate users can perform a direct downgrade. You can start a fresh installation from a bootable disk of WinXP. Be aware that this will replace the Vista with XP.

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

I have a acer laptop model aspire 4730z windows vista to xp


I think you want to change the operating system from vista to xp, simply re-install xp operating system and it will work but before doing that do check if your model supports xp or not...if it does then you can check for the driver from www.acerpanam.com
