Hello kelajo34,

There might be a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the Acer T180 Vista Basic DMI. The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the Acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer T180 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

Also, It might be a good idea to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before upgrading from vista basic to Windows 7 on the Acer T180. The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor download link is at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b544e90-7659-4bd9-9e51-2497c146af15&displaylang=en

Have a great day,

I have a acer AL5100-ud4400a i pressed alt+f10 while booting now im stuck on (verifing dmi pool data...... update success) nothing else happens any answers would be appreciated.


Huh, it seems to be stuck picking a boot device. Narrow it down by removing (disconnecting) USB, flash or optical devices, and see what happens. It might have been polling a failed DVD-ROM drive or something....

You can also try reseating your videocard or installing a lesser one until you get it booted....

DMI Pool Data, Acer


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:

I need a serial number from a acer notebook running windows vista premium/home premium. Mine is a 751h and runs basic, so they won't ship me the free upgrade. However, there are videos all over the...


The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.

Bios update failed *flash*


Did you make copy of your original bios before flashing...if yes then reflash with your original.
If No then trying reflashing again making sure no power cuts, dont touch computer until flashing is complete.
Are you using the correct bios for your MoBo?

No audio output at all


Try here

note it depends on whether you have Vista SP1 or not. Check what version you have first (press Windows + Pause/break key and see if the Welcome window says SP1 anywhere)
