Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
Swapped out power supply with known good one and tested both with power supply tester. Both tested identically even 12v 4pin connector, drive power plugs and 3.5" power plug. PC won't power on, no drive lights, not bios screen, nothing. Green LED on mother board is lit.
Had same problem with 4 year old eMachine and now this Dell 2400 which is a Celeron also.
Is there anything else besides taking out all peripherials and disconnecting all power connections to drives? Is the only diagnosis that the mother board has failed?
Failures in the motherboard, memory, or any installed card could cause that symptom. All I can suggest based on the above information is remove memory one piece at a time and retest, remove/reseat video card if you have one, and attempt to reset the CMOS using the jumper on the board. You might also try removing the battery on the board and unplugging everything, then attempt to reboot.
