Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers

I got fed up with VISTA and installed XP Pro on to my Acer Aspire T180. All went well except that I now am missing drivers. When I go to Device Manager it shows that there are no drivers installed for the Display adapter / Video Controller (VGA compatible) and also under Other devices / PCI Device.

I've searched on the web and am not able to find any drivers and the default video is awful.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated i too took vista off and put xp on now no drivers for my sound and ethernet controller and my video controller dont know where to look

If you installed the customized(!) version of Windows that ACER supplies with each new ACER computer, namely Windows Vista Home Premium, you should have all of the correct device-drivers.

If you "down-graded" from that version of Windows to Windows XP, and some of the device-drivers are "missing", then I recommend that you reinstall Windows Vista, or purchase an "upgrade" to Windows 7.

You might try to access the manufacturer's web-site, via: http://www.Acer.com
to see if they support "down-grading" to Windows XP, and if they supply the needed device-drivers.

But, your BEST solution is to reinstall Windows Vista, and be sure to apply "Service Pack 2" to Vista, to bring it up-to-date.

Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

I tryed to install win xp to aspire 5720 but i can not


Was Windows Vista installed before? If so, it is impossible to install it. From personal experience,I do not even recommend the Dual Boot as it messes up the two system files and everything will eventually fail. If you had any other OS installed, you have to do an initial Back-up when you buy it. This is because the factory image includes all drivers necessary for your computer to run. If you try to install another OS than the one pre-installed, the drivers will be missing. There is also the fact that laptops tend to have SATA drives which are only detected with Windows XP PRO Service Pack 3. If you don't have this Version of XP, it won't detect your hard drive.
Hope this helps.

Seems like you need todo a fresh installation of windows, either Xp or Vista to get rid of the issues you have now, after that you need the drivers for the laptop

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5720.html

even though it says vista, if the driver name has XP32 or XP64 in the end it means the driver will also work with XP
