Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

No Power I have an acer T180,AMD anthlon 3800 processor. It came with Windows vista which was ****, so I formated the hard drive and was going to put XP in but. When the computer rebooted it wouldnt come back on at all.It seems theres no power coming from the motherboard.The on /off switch dosent work at all. but when I plug it in it powers up the fan on the cpu but that seems to be as far as the power goes. My hard drive dosent start up and I have no power to my DVD r/w either. Is there a fuse or something that may have blown.

I cant play fifa 09 on my acer aspire one 522, is it with the resolution? how can I fix this?


Your processor is the problem : It's a dual core 1GHz AMD C-Series processor C-50 and even though it might barely be able to run the game, the game was made before the processor type was released, and thus the game doesn't know what the heck it is and only sees that its a 1GHz CPU and thus considers it to slow to run the game.

Here are the system requirements:
Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista - CPU: 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 512 Megabytes of RAM (1 GB required for Windows Vista)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 128 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 2.0 or above)
- DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
512kbit/s or greater broadband connection for online gameplay
- 6.1 GB free hard disk space for DVD format and additional space required for DirectX 9.0c installation
- 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive

How to instal window XP into Acer aspire T180


The Aspire T180's single-core 2.4GHz AMD Athlon 64 3800+ processor and 1GB of RAM hamper its performance right out of the box, keeping it from being even a passable fit with the Windows Vista Home Premium OS we've seen on other budget machines. (The Aspire ships with Vista Home Basic.) The 160GB hard drive is also on the small side, and the nVidia GeForce 6100/nForce 430 MCP integrated graphics are not exactly top-notch tech, either.
You do, however, get a few bonuses. The software selection includes a 90-day trial of Norton AntiVirus 2006, as well as CyberLink PowerDVD, NTI CD-Maker Gold, and Acer's own performance, recovery, and security tools. And the PC does offer good expandability. Two RAM slots are free, as are an external 5.25-inch drive bay, three internal hard drive bays, two PCI Express (PCIe) slots (one x1 and one x16), and one PCI 2.2 slot. (A modem occupies a second PCI slot.) So it's possible to bump up the Aspire T180's power a bit with some carefully chosen components.

To load Win XP simply select CD-ROM BOOT option from BIOS(hit DEL / F2 key while starting up power), insert a bootable WinXP SP 2/3 CD, depending on it being Genuine Microsoft product or a cracked ver.). When prompted to hit any key, do so & follow instructions on the screen. This is assuming you are doing so for the first time, make 2/3 partitions, else re-install on 'C' Drive after formatting it. Use NTFS partition option. If any probs, pl write back & I'll give more detailed instructions.

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

I am using an AMD anthlon 64 X2 processor 3800 + and my computer doesnt turn on and makes continously high pitched beeping sound .This just happened yesterday and I dont know why , plz help .Thank you


try to check out your video card and try to clean it or your memory card.

these are the steps to clean and remove corrosion on your cards:

1. open your cpu and remove your video card and memory card our the slots.
2. get an eraser and gently use your eraser to brush the pins to take off corrosion.
3. after doing this, gently put your card to their corresponding slots and press it so that
the contact point of the pin and slot will hold so that your board will read your cards.
4. close the cpu and start your pc.

Processor upgrade


Need to look at the motherboard specs along with the processor "Socket". It will usually be a 754 or 939 depending on what your motherboard says. I wouldn't try too fast and set yourself up for disappointment. I would upgrade the RAM before the processor.

Need Drivers


Actually you need to install chipset drivers first then you shoud try for additiona PCI driver like external sound card.
Try one thing again, go to your www.acer.com site and search driver as per your "Service tag no." not for model no. and download drivers for 'Chipset' and others as per your requirement.
