Touch some wood or put some rubber gloves on. I wouldn't be too concerned about static electricity, just snap it into the slot correctly. If you have rubber soled shoes on, ur grounded..

HELP! Acer T180 is possessed!


Have you Googled the beep codes? This is most likely your solution. You should do the RAM test on your system.


Blue Screen Of Death


  • Remove all USB attached devices.
  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC. Opening case. Remove all RAM. Use static precautions!
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best. All data will be lost.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

I have memory problems on my ACER how do I fix it ?


I recommend to just replace the memory in the computer if you know for sure your having the issues with memory. That way no messing around and damaging any other part in the computer with the static from your skin.

Why do I have 2 hard drives (c & D)? Can they be combined into 1 (c)? Also I only have 1 gb of ram and I need more. Is it upgradable to 4 gb of ram? If so where can I buy the additional ram?


Yes...
But you have to reformat the harddrive and then install windows.
with a CD
You do a fdisk, rermove all drives, then make a new drive with no additions. Then you format it using thorough , not quick format

Acer t180 card reader problem not work yet! do i need driver?


Hello,

The card reader is integrated with Windows Vista and XP so you will not need additional drivers.Make sure that your card reader is connected properly on your mainboard. At the back of you cardreader, there should be one thick black cable going onto the mainboard.
