Check if the RAM is well seated.

Also check if the keyboard is well connected.

Re: acer ast180

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?

OK I bought an acer ast180 loaned it to a friend he put xp on it I am trying to retore to factory but when I boot and use alt+f10 it still tries to go into xp

When a new operating system is installed over another one, it completely overwrites the previous operating system, making it impossible to use the first operating system that was on your machine, even if you try to restore to factory defaults.

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode? You can do this by pressing/tapping the 'F8' key after the bios screen (Acer Screen) comes up. If it does you boot correctly then, you can try to restore the system to an earlier date using System Restore. That's located in the start menu/windows orb at All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore

Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your motherboard and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your computer. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -
