Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

Acer Aspire Desktop RAM

I have an Acer desktop that came with 512kb of RAM and I tried to install a 1G of RAM, but when I initially installed it, it beeped. So I took it out and realized I did not intsert it in correctly. After inserting the RAM correctly, my computer does not boot up anymore.

Did I fry my computer? Is there anything I can do to fix this? I took the new RAM out and left the old one in, but it still does not work. I also left the new one in, but took the old one out.

    I did. The old RAM was in the first slot (initially) and I have tried it in the second, third, and fourth. But none have worked.



    The computer powers up, but the screen is blank. And on the top of the tower, there led light is not red (usually indicating a problem).

I am not for sure why, but sometimes resetting the BIOS to the default setting will allow the computer to restart.

I have Acer Aspire E500 (ASE500-UP801M) running Win XP Media Center edition, 1G RAM. It is too slow. Q1. Could I add another RAM stick to it and how much maximum could I add? Q2. How do I know the Bus


Test your computer using a brand new hard drive. 1GB memory is enough. I am sure this is a software problem (messy registry or problematic apps or malware) or space problem (the hard drive is almost full).

Instaling 2x1G ram. already have 1G and 512G sticks in place. beeping and no startup. wtf


remove the 512s and try again, try each stick one by one. make sure that your using the correct slots on the motherboard as module slots with differnt colors often mean that the modules in those slots need to be be the same spec, not nessesarly the same manufactur.

Acer Aspire T 180 stops with Acer Logo


What you were trying to do tried to remove the RAM and boot your pc. Buddy once you remove your RAM you are going to get long beeps as it tells there is no RAM on mother board and it won't boot. Just install back all the things and let me know how many beeps you are getting and what type short and long.

How to upgrade acer aspire m1100 ram


It is actually pretty simple, just remove either screws or fasteners holding the case on. On that model it may even just be the side panel, which would be 2 screws/fasteners. Here is a video that explains the process. http://videos.howstuffworks.com/howstuffworks/26-how-to-install-ram-to-a-desktop-computer-video.htm Thanks,

Install ATI Radeon X1550 PIC on Acer Aspire E650


If you think the PC boots up but just no screen, check the Graphics settings in BIOS for first/initial diaplay with PCI instead of other Graphics Ports (on board/PCIe/PCI/AGP)? Disable on board display if any.
