Answers :

All you have to do is to find the appropriate XP drivers for your hardware.

  1. Go to Acer's support page here.
  2. \015\012
  3. Go through all steps to identify your model: Desktop->Aspire->AspireT180.
  4. \015\012
  5. Now choose the Operating System: XPHome, XPPro32bit, or XPPro64bit. It's a pretty small menu and easy to miss!
  6. \015\012
  7. Click on the driver tab if necessary
  8. \015\012
  9. There you find at least your chipset and audio driver.
  10. \015\012
  11. You did not say which PCI card you have and you might find the right driver here as well.
Otherwise you will have to find the vendor of your PCI device and download a driver from there. You can also delete the entry in your Device Manager, restart and let Windows try to find a suitable driver for the device. If you let me know what it is, I'm happy to help you finding it.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment.
Exactly what I was going to say. Just wanted to make sure. :) You can find the necessary drivers on Acer's website. Just go to the support website and go to the Driver Download section and find your T180. The drivers will be listed there.
