Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I booted up my acer T180 for the first time in several weeks (possibly acouple of months). I downloaded some Microsoft updates, and then told mycomputer to restart.
The computer never restarted. The fans came on, but the monitor never gave any indication that the computer was in operation.
1. Fans came on.
2. The green power light on computer front did not turn on.
3. Nothing showed up on monitor.
4. DVD Drive lights were on, and tray could be opened/shut.
5. When I held in power button, other fans would power up.
I disconnected all USB devices, this had no effect.
I disconnected hard drive, this had no effect.
I disconnected DVD drive, this had no effect.
I removed BIOS CR2032 battery for several minutes, no effect.
Basically,the computer acts as if it is dead, except that the fans will operateand the DVD drive is powered and can open/close.
The computer is not reaching a stage where it is outputting to the monitor. I want to punch this computer in the face.
If the computer is still under warranty return it. This is a hardware problem with one or a couple of the controllers on the board. Or if you have a solid state drive you won't hear the drive but that still means that your display is not working. If you try to put a graphics card in do you see anything?
