Question about Acer Aspire (AST180-US340B) PC Desktop
Acer AST 180-UA350B Aspire wont boot.power outage last night computer was turned on . Went to use tonight found it would turn the cpu cooler fan for a second or two, then turn off fan and start beeping one long tone over and over.
If your power supply is bad, there is typically a much cheaper way to fix it rather than purchasing a new one.
If you know a little about electronics or know someone who does have them open up the power supply and check the capacitors. Often times when a power supply goes bad its the result of capacitors going bad.
If you notice on the ends of any capacitors a brownish/whitish discharge or "bulging" then the capacitor has gone bad.
A new one typically cost less than a dollar and replacing it is fairly easy if you know how to solder.
Let me know if you have anymore questions and hopefully if this is the case you can save some money.

Looks like you got a power surge. Did you have it plug in on a power surge? It might sound like one long beep but really it could be many beeps. It beeps really quick. If you listen carefully you can count the beeps. Repost it here again how many beeps you got. Right now I'm thinking your motherboard or your cpu is broken

It sounds like you might have burned out the power supply on your PC with a power surge when the power came back on. The are fairly inexpensive and some what easy to replace.
You will want to replace it with one of equal or greater watts. You can order a new power supply on line from many vendors.
I would not be turning the computer on and off any more. I would unplug the computer, remove the old power supply and get a new one.
You should have your system plugged into a surge protection power strip if possible.
I hope this helps,
