    Thanks for the help; I couldn't find a beep code to match what ours does, continous beeps every 3 seconds.

    We also tried unplugging everything, but again beeps.

I had the same problem a few months ago. I tried different things with no luck.
A friend of mine (computer geek) checked it out and found nothing wrong with it. He changed the power supply and worked fine, then he put back the original power supply and it has been working fine since then.
It could be a loose connection or probably something was reset when he replaced it.
Please let us know if the Solution #2 from chetangupta worked for you.

Good luck,

I have an ACER Aspire AST 180-UD360A. Was working fine till yesterday. Turned it on and Acer logo came on with "enter setup F12" then went black - dead. Computer does not turn on at all. Checked power...

From what you describe, you issue could well be the hard drive. Turn the system on, then press f12 to enter the setup, see if the system stays running. While there, if it stays on, see if the hard drive is detected.

If the HDD is detected, see if you can run diags on the drive.

Other options, boot to the Windows Media and see if the system stays running there. (you may have to remove the hard drive to do this)

If the system runs in any of these and will not boot to the hard drive at all, then there is a good possibility that the drive is bad, and you may well have lost your data.

If the system continues to power off, even with the HDD removed, then the motherboard is likely the failure.

Ast180-ud360a will not boot up

I suspect bad memory. Have you worked on it recently? Make sure the memory is in and seated properly. Same with processor and adapter cards.

If you havn't worked on it or opened it, and don't feel comfortable opening it up, you might want to take it to a computer repair place.

The beeps that you are hearing are messages created by the POST (Power On Self Test) to indicate that something is wrong. If you know your motherboard type it is possible to find the documentation explaining what 3 beeps mean.

Because we don't know the motherboard type (At least for now) let's use the common sense.  Did you verify that the power supply is properly connected to the drive?  Can you confirm that removing the second Hard drive it boot again ok? In some type of BIOS 3 beeps means memory problem. By accident did you touch the memory? Are all the ribbon cables well plugged in?
