The exact same thing happened when I did a bios update on my acer

I have the acer t180 .. the same thing happened to me . Ihad no problems but I decided to upgrade the bios anywaysss biggg mistake.

in winflash i got write error and protected bios errors. so now the only option was to reboot and that wipes the system clean and nothing but beeps.
and after resetting the bios and taking out the battery for 20minutes- it would Not reset it hangs at the the EXACT point. I wish there was a secret way to reflash this thing its a bloody 1mb bios image that messed the whole computer up! and thanks for the iso but i cannot boot from floppy, cd, usb or harddrive so theres no way to flash that.

Anyone know of a JTAG or a manual way to reflash bios (removing chip from that socket?)

Sorry to say this but you have to replace your PC's motherboard. flashing the bios is one big mistake that i learned from. also i think that's not covered by the warranty.

Acer T180 SATA controller/bios stopped recognizing my 250GB Hard Disk. Not able to load any OS on new Hard Drives.Bios recognize the IDE DVD/RW drive.


If it just happened without any changes then it's probably a failure of the controller. You should probably check the bios just to make sure it's turned on. Also make sure there aren't any cabling problems. Your motherboard may have two controllers, a primary and secondary. Try swapping to the other cable. It's also a good excuse to get a new motherboard and cpu. The prices are really low lately.

No universal serial controller on my acer t180


Hi there. You need to update/install your chipset drivers.
This link will give you the chipset drivers:

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=3703&formid=3394&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2

You should notice that this driver is for XP. It should still work, but there is currently no chipset support for Vista on your product. If the above drivers don't work, then you can download the BIOS update from here:

http://www.acer.co.uk/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3734&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=17&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3734&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=3713735360

You will need to select your specific pc (Desktop, Aspire, Aspire T180), then click on the BIOS tab, download and install.

Hope that works

The most stable would be a Dual Core 5000+ (2.6GHz) (Or 5200+ at most).
You will also need to update your BIOS, which can be found here

Upgrading Acer Aspire T180


Try putting back the old RAM.

If it does not happen anymore, then it means it was the RAM.

This does not mean that the new CorsairRAM is necessarily faulty, but that it is having compatibility problems with one of the other devices, for example the video adapter.

Computer beeps and screen is blank


The computer beeps when some components are missing. Check all the connections.

Please try to press F8 at the boot, and choose Safe mode. You will see then if it is the hard drive the problem.

If you have more information after the T180 for the model number, can you indicate it please. You might have to update the BIOS.

Acer T180 frozen on the Acer Logo Screen


I would believe it's a problem with your motherboard. If you warranty covers it, tell Acer about the problem and have someone fix it. Otherwise, find a PC repair shop near you, and take it in to have it tested. Make sure you figure out what is wrong exactly before you buy new parts if you take it to a repair shop.
