I've tried getting drivers from both the ACER website and Realtek
website to no avail. I've also updated the chipset drivers from nVidia
(6100 chipset), then attempted to reinstall the drivers, yet still am
unable to locate a sound device and hear any audio. Both my speakers
and my headset work and I have tried using them in both my front and
back audio ports.. again to no avail. :( Help please!

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 think the only problem you encounter is about the sound driver. Because the other driver is plug and play for the other devices. Open the link below and download the realtek audio driver. Good luck.... http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/
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:
Available driver-update information is often extremely sparse, and it can be difficult to be sure that you have found the right driver for your device. We strongly recommend that you consult your hardware manufacturer for advice on updating drivers; or employ a diagnostic tool such as VersionTracker Pro that can analyze the existing drivers on your system and match them to available upgrades.
