Can not start my computer

Hi, I have a t180, and up until yesterday it was working fine. When I tried to start it this morning I was greeted with beeps, and no signal to my monitor. The fans seem to be working fine. I have tried taking out ram and still no luck! The beeps are are 1 long and two short if that helps?

Plug the unit directly to the ac outlet if it is plug into a surge protector. See if it boots. Did you shut it down yesterday or was it left running? Any bad weather last night? You could try another computer memory and see it is the memory. Not sure what it could be at this point. What type of system is it?
It could possibly be a bad power supply.

I hope this helps.

Pc doesn't boot stops at set up


Your computer is having some problems at POST. Try removing one of the memory dimms you have installed. In case you have one leave it like that and remove Hard Drives, optical drives, any usb devices on the back and try again. In case it boots start attaching the hard drive and try again.. if it boots, add the optical drive and so on until you get the failure.
I hope this helps.

Won't start up anymore. have several harddisks. tried to install different systems: windows, linux, freedos(dr). only with freedos was it possible to reformat hd and restart. but after a while same...


Can be lots of things, probably something I don't know. Do you think maybe one of your memory cards is loose? I have one computer that if it gets bumped slightly it shuts everything down, bad connection to the card.
I like the free program on download.com called Advanced System Care, maybe try running it.
Computers are really the biggest time savers and time wasters ever invented by man aren't they?

Computer will not load up - frozen on acer start screen?


Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.

Trouble with my new acer aspire desktop computer


Slow boot problems on any computers are due to 2 reasons :
(1) Hardware reasons and
(2)Software reasons

(TRY THE SOLUTION MENTIONED FOR SOFTWARE FIRST, IF THAT DOES NOT HELP, ONLY THEN TRY THE HARDWARE SOLUTION)

HARDWARE REASONS> if your system has less RAM (memory) then it can cause slow boot up issues,
SOLUTION FOR HARDWARE > I recommend you to check the amount of memory on your system., to check the memory on your system , click on start , then "right click" on "my computer " icon and select properties.. on the screen you will the the amount of RAM installed. I recommend 1 GB of RAM on a computer.

SOFTWARE REASONS> These can be a problem with the windows XP operating system.
SOLUTION FOR SOFTWARE> perform the steps as mentioned in the following links :

All the best
