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.

SOURCE: T180 SM Bus Controller driver incorrect

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV is an ethernet controller. Try installing the ethernet controller driver from Acer's website, here is a link, just highlight it all, copy and paste in your address bar. Click Save and save it to your PC.
P.S. Don't forget where you saved it to.

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us

So i decided to downgrade my acer aspire t180 from vista to xp, most things seem to work ok but have question marks on pci device and sm bus controller in the device manager. sound is not working either....


Since you have downgraded the system the drivers must be installed for the Operating system you are using. Kindly visit the manufacturer's website to download the drivers
Chipset, Audio, Video, BIOS, Wireless/ Wired internet.

This will make sure that everythiung works fine.

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 www.acer.com 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.
