|The Acer T180 is great for the first time PC buyer. It has all the functionality you could ask for. Well this computer was simply bought for 2 main purposes. My mother will need to access her email and my sister will want to play games.|

|good to look at runs far to slow since new has crashed at leasted 35 times build quality is quite good,pc easy to upgrade memory etc,amd athlon dual core processer is a big plus .came with vista home premium pre installed.|

|Not a bad computer. Needs more ram to run vista effectively. Only one complaint - the hard drive is way too noisy. Excellent value for the price. As far as upgrades, I replaced the RAM with 2 gigs of OCZ PC2-6400 800MHz, that gave a big performance improvement!|

|If you take the time to read the reviews anyone who gave it less then 5 stars were complaining about no restore disks.|

|I will tell you up front that I am by no means a computer whiz. The model I had before this Acer T180 left a lot to be desired.|

|Good value computer I bought this on a recommendation from a friend. I am pleased with it, it is quiet, fast and does everything that I need it to.|

|Good computer, just need to downgrade to XP. Well the hardware is good hardware With Vista installed the ram just does not make up for the speed. should come with more recovery disks as do not have! no manuals! hardly any customer support! This computer is a great home model. It runs great. I added a floppy, an additional 1G of memory, an identical 250G SATA drive, a 350W power supply, and an eVGA 8600GT video card.|

|The Aspire X3200 is the desktop product that is created with exquisite article concept. When i was a kid i always whanted a Capri.At the age of 19 a got my first,only a 1.6GL,but being a mechanic soon turned it into a 2.1.|

|aspire disk drive It never lasted much longer than the guarantee, then it went wrong not much good acer aspire I recently bought the acer aspire ,I LOVE IT !!I DID UPGRADE THE RAM MEMORY TO 4GB which was really simple to do. A bit rubbish I agree with the previous comments. All it needs is a tweak here and there, specially more RAM.|

Most systems are already configured by the manufacturer or the dealer. There is no need to run Setup when starting the computer unless you get a Run Setup message.
The Setup program loads configuration values into the battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM. This memory area is not part of the system RAM. NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery may be bad/flat. In this case, the system cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Before you run Setup, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system reboots immediately after you exit Setup.
The following table describes the parameters found in this menu. Settings in boldface are the default and suggested settings.

Choose Auto to let the system auto detect which PIO mode is best, or select a PIO mode from 0-4 Each IDE channel supports a master device and slave device. This motherboard supports UltraDMA technology, which provides faster access to IDE devices. If you install a device that supports UltraDMA, change the appropriate item on this list to Auto. You may have to install the UltraDMA driver supplied with this motherboard in order to use an UltraDMA device. This item allows users to enable the transfer access of the IDE DMA then burst onto the PCI bus and nonburstable transactions do not. This item allows you to enable or disable the onboard SATA controller. The onboard IDE drive interface supports IDE prefetching for faster drive access. If you install a primary and secondary add-in IDE interface, set this field to Disabled if the interface does not support prefetching. Enables this field if your IDE hard drive supports block mode.
