Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I purchased an Acer Aspire Desktop Computer brand new in 2000. While it's an older model, I only used it for 9 months. One day when I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't start. Does this system have a reset button or can someone tell me what I should I do, other that ''throw it away''? The model number is VKP23V and the manufactures date is 98/02/04.
Thanks for your help.
It appears you have a bad powersupply. You'll need to replace it with one of equal or greater watts.

Since you have other computers available you may want to try swapping out a power suplly to see if that cures this computer. You just have to make sure of two things. The replacement power supply is the same or greater wattage and that it has the right connectors (newer computers made changes to the connectors).
Also make sure that you did not accidentally press the on/off switch on the back of the power supply. I did this once and felt kind of silly. Not all power supplies will have that switch, but a lot do.
Let us know what you find.

This is most likely a power supply problem. sometimes a power surge will cause failure, even when the computer is not turned on. You can replace the whole power supply, or you could check the fuse that is inside the power supply first. on rare occasions the fuse will be the only thing blown, but that doesn't happen often.
