Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Went from Vista to XP Pro 64bt, sound not working

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!

My video,audio can not work


If you formatted and reinstalled then you probably just need to install the drivers. You can download them from here.

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.

No sound on my computer.


Check the BIOS settings in your computer to see if the sound was turned off.

I have an eMachines T3616 with Vista on it and want to change to XP-Pro. Vista is just too darn slow. The problem is the drivers. Any ideas? TYIA, Russ


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....

Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers


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:

I downloaded and installed chipset for XP 32 and it worked fine - presume the same is true for the Home Edition drivers.

I did try the pdf index suggested by a previous poster but I found all the links to XP drivers were broken.

Updating Vista Drivers


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.
