Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I want to add two monitors to my Acer Aspire T180. Can you tell me which ones are compatible please? Do you reccommend using one of the slots or a USB adaptor. I notice that with the USB you can mirror your primary screen which is essential for me. Thank you for your time and attention. Neil Bradford

Hi Neil,
Any screen will do.
It is now worth a resolution of 1680*1050 (perhaps Fujitsu)
I recommend using a slot card or change the one installed with one with 2 outputs (eventually HDMI or HDVI.

Monitors need to be plugged to ports called VGA (blue) or HDMI, DVI (white)
If you instead have decided to use the USB you need also to find a USB adapter like this: http://i638.photobucket.com/albums/uu110/z-Traxx/NewerTech-USB-Video-Display-Adapter.jpg

With Windows XP you can hav the possibility to mirror or extend the Video going under Right Clik on Desktop/Properties/Settings and select here the 1 or 2 monitors.

I have an Acer Aspire T180 and would like to upgrade the memory and add a wi-fi card. can you advise what cards I need to purchase?


Memory:
Looks like the Aspire T180 takes DDR2 533/667/800 memory. This is pretty easy to upgrade. Check to see how many memory slots your computer has (Probably 4, might only have 2). You should probably just replace what you have with new memory.
I recommend this memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
It is 2x 2GB modules. 4GB of RAM is a good amount of RAM to have, you will see a noticeable performance increase.

WiFi:
I would recommend a USB wifi adaptor. It is easy to instal and most ones work well, even the cheap ones. Just stick it in the back of your computer and forget it it's even there.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833130066
I recommend this one, I have been using it for 2 years and have had no problems.

I tried to upgrade my acer t180 to windows 7 from vista basic, no i"m having dmi problems... seems like it's stuck... help please


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 cannot get any sound output from my Acer Aspire T180 desktop PC. I changed the monitor from the original "out of the box" monitor. I have plugged in media speakers but there still is no sound output.


Sounds like a driver problem.

You should be able to get a universal Realtek driver from here.....

My acer aspire t180 ua380a desktop comp will not post. I turn on the comp and the red light comes on but no green lights and again the comp will not post. I have reseated the ram and cpu.


If it won't post you have a bad memory chip or memory slot try a different slot. Do you have more than one stick of ram? if so remove one stick and try it in different slots, if it does not post then buy some new ram.

Ram and Bios issue


Make sure your other stick of Ram is installed properly, once that is done make sure that the stick of ram is compatible with that computer. After that even, check to see if your computer is capable of processing that amount of RAM.
