If your facing your computer take the left side off. I'm just asuming that your changing the video card. When its off look to see where your monitor plugs in. Ok now take the coresponding card out by removing one screw next to the back of the computer. These slide out by kinda wiggling them back and forth un til they slide out.Use reverse procedure place the card back into the same slot as the other one and replace screw. replace side plate and plug in monitor.

Acer aspire t180-d97z will not start ,1 long beep2 short ,


Hi.

There is a problem with the on-board video or the graphics card. If you have a standalone graphics card in the computer take it out, clean the slot and the brass contacts on the card and re-seat it.
Also reset the CMOS by removing the power cord and take out the motherboard battery for 20 minutes. Re-insert the battery and power cord and see of the computer will boot up with a display on-screen.



Good luck.

New graphics card


You can buy an Nvidia 8800GTS with 320MB for $180, and a 9600 woth 512MB for 130. If I were you I'd pick either of these, they're both good cards for a good price.

Processor
AMD AM2 Athlon 64 x 2 or Athlon 64 or Sempron (940 pin)

1 Ok now that i found the spec for your computer here we go you can install the amd 64 x2 but not Phenom x4 9950

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.
3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer.
hope this help please vote for me.

Graphics card


Hi bob,

Is your onboard video busted? as i check your specs; you have these slots available in your motherboard

2 ( 2 ) x PCI ¦ 1 ( 1 ) x PCI Express x1 ¦ 1 ( 1 ) x PCI Express x16 ¦ 1 ( 0 ) x processor ¦ Memory

base from:
http://www.twenga.co.uk/specs-Aspire-T180-ACER-Desktop-PC-243132

so, you can go to your nearest computer shop and ask them for a videocard that uses PCI Express x16, if its for gaming then go for the higher specs, i can't assist you further with regard to the exact video card model though.
