Re: Can't Get Case Off

Remove the 2 screws from the side panel, Try sliding a flat head screw driver behind the face plate cover on the side of the case and and gently pry it backward. That should allow it to free up and slide easily.

HELP! Acer T180 is possessed!

Have you Googled the beep codes? This is most likely your solution. You should do the RAM test on your system.

Blue Screen Of Death

  • Remove all USB attached devices.
  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC. Opening case. Remove all RAM. Use static precautions!
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best. All data will be lost.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

ECS GeForce6100MP-M2 V2.0 - mobo with 1GB + 512MB RAM, AMD processor , 1GB DDR3 GeForce210 EVGA PCI Graphic Card.

The motherboard is a lemon. Throw it away, have a drink, and never look at it again.

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...

AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

Hi! My Hp Pavillion a1710n desktop emits a series of never ending beeps every time I turn it on, and nothing appears on the monitor. I checked and the monitor is plugged in. I dont know what's going on.

The problem with RAM or DISplay card(It can be Moisture problem) or Processor Fan is not working properly. Open the CPU case, locate RAM, remove the ram by opening the both side clips. and put the RAM back as it is. If you have Graphics card on your CPU then remove the Graphics Card also and put it back as it is. Start the PC with opened case to check Processor Fan is Rotating or not. If Fan is not working properly then you have to replace the Processor FAN. Fan ok but same problem persists. you have to replace RAM with new one. as well as Graphics (Display) card.

Acer Aspire M5100 AM5100-U5313A AMD 4400 will not boot. Powers on but does not display boot sequence... Monitor acts like it is not hooked up... tried onboard card as well and pci express. I am thinking a...

Could be. Sounds like a repair shop issue if no system info is appearing.

This may be pointless, but try it anyway: -

It shows symptoms of RAM error, except it lacks warning beeps or led flash usually associated with this. Some PC's don't have this function.

Remove all RAM and replace one stick only, presuming you have at least 2 sticks. then try the same thing with the other sticks, one module at a time.

It's rare, but RAM does fail and it causes these symptoms. Also, if RAM is mixed and incompatible, this would also occur.

Mixing RAM may also kill the good RAM.

Next, check your PSU voltage readings ie 5v rails and 12 volt rails with a good quality multimeter. Or you might try another PSU.

Really need to have it physically in front of me to give a better answer.

Opening side panel of acer aspire t180

You have done half the work toward the solution by removing the thumbscrews. The other half involves sliding a spring-loaded lever above the lower thumbscrew toward the bottom of the case. While the lever is slid toward the case bottom, push on the side panel in the same direction as the screws, i.e. toward the rear of the case. The side panel should slide just slightly, allowing you to then lift it off to access the inside. Note that when replacing the side panel, follow the above steps in reverse order.

When replacing the side panel, note that if the panel is not correctly replaced, the thumbscrews will not be able to be installed as the lock lever will not be set properly.

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.
