Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
When we try to turn it on, the lights on the pc turn on and there is a continous beep about every four seconds. The computer never boots 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?
