ACER Aspire T180 Upgraded and and now freezes

Hi

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.

Any ideas?

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.

Want faster processor for acer x1300 it base unit


Here are the spec on your pc if the information you gave me is correct. You can only upgrade the cpu to the socket you have. I think you would be better off adding more RAM and a better video card that isn't onboard. Processor / Chipset
  • Type AMD Athlon X2 7450 / 2.4 GHz
  • Number of Cores Dual-Core
  • 64-bit Computing Yes
  • CPU Qty 1.0
  • Max CPU Qty 1.0
  • Chipset Type NVIDIA GeForce 8200

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!

    Amd a64 x2 4 athlon 64 x2 dual core processor & Corsair xms2 2 gb


    What we really need to know is the socket type for the AMD. AMD makes sockets 939, AM, AM2, AM2+, AM3, etc. www.newegg.com will be the best friend you could ask for. I highly suggest their expert forums and chats as well, they'll help if someone here doesn't. But either way still need to know what socket that amd is. 5200, or 4200 or something like that is also more descriptive, thats how they ID their products. Mine is an AMD phenom II 920. Good proc.

    Upgrading Acer Aspire T180


    Try putting back the old RAM.

    If it does not happen anymore, then it means it was the RAM.

    This does not mean that the new CorsairRAM is necessarily faulty, but that it is having compatibility problems with one of the other devices, for example the video adapter.

    2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend.

    hope this help please vote for me.
