    ow... sounds exactly like my presario s40wm-b model... it does that and the hard drive spins with all the fans... but the thing wont get on the boot screen... i took it to the people down in my town and they said i have to replace the motherboard.

    Do you hear or see any fans running? if not then it is likely a motherboard issue, or possibly a bad power supply. it may be best to take it to a shop so they can check for a short or blown capacitors.

If you hear no fans it does'nt neccessarily mean a motherboard problem.
I would think this may be your power supply.
Most small pc repair stores will test the power for you on the spot
at little or no cost.
Is the fan on the back of the pc powering
let me know

Acer aspire t180 cd tray wont open

It could be a few things but does not sound software related. 1.) The drive is bad (happens more often than you would think). 2.) No power to the cd drive (less likely)-The power cable attached to the cd drive has come loose or fallen off. You will need to open up the computer case to check. 2.) A cd is stuck in it (even more less likey)There is usually a tiny hole on the front of the cd drive that you can fit the end of a paper clip into. Push the paper clip in and it should force the cd tray to open. You will need to push the tray closed with your hand. Considering you can buy a new CD Drive for about $40 now, and the fact that more than likely the drive is bad, I would go out to Best Buy and get a new drive, and replace the one you have. If for some reason that does not work, you should be able to return the new drive to the store.

At startup, screen flashes blue, but will not stay open long enought to read. continues to enter setup. nothing will open vista program fron there. only repeats steps

If the Operating System Restore CD finishes and the computer reboots and ejects the CD and it still doesn't work, the problem could be with your hard drive.

If the computer powers off on its own unexpectedly, the problem could be with your power supply.

Replacing these parts can be done in most cases using only a screwdriver to remove the case screws on the computer, opening the case, then unplugging the old unit and plugging in the new one in the same spot.

My cd drive won't open. When I press the open button nothing happens.

probably there's something wrong with your cd drive,the connection might be loose enough for it to run properly. try to open your cpu box and remove the cd drive for a while from the mother board and connect it back...

Acer Aspire T180 Won't turn on--

There is a similar problem posted here:

Unplug all USB devices as it may be trying to boot from a USB drive.

If you don't have USB drives plugged in try booting into the BIOS to see if the computer is booting that far. Restart the computer and keep hitting the DEL button, that should get you into the BIOS.
