Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I've recently updated my PC with Corsair ram - 2 x 1GB DDR2-800 and AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core processor 5200 2.6GHZ.
It was fine for the first week but now it periodically freezes after being on for about 20mins. The only option when this happens is to turn it off by the power button as nothing else works. It also sometimes just turns off by itself even when it hasn't been on that long (don't think this is due to overheating).
It's been suggested that I update the BIOS. I contacted Acer but they weren't helpful at all.
I have the same PC. I have a couple of POSSIBLE solutions for you.
First, it turns out this MB is REAL picky about its memory so make sure all your RAM modules have the same spec's (Manufacturer, speed, timings etc....) and make sure that if you only have 2 modules that you use two that are the same color as these are the match pair.
Second, seeing as you spent money on Corsair RAM you may be a serious gamer and probably have other upgrades on your system. The power supply that comes with this Unit is only a 250W PSU. Hardly enough for the base unit itself. If you want to do any serious computing tasks with this PC I would recommend upgrading your PSU to at least a 450W unit.
Hope this helps

Remove the new ram modules and see if the problem continues. If it does not, you know the ram modules are bad.
