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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Aspire T180 Specifications
AMD AM2 Athlon 64 x 2 or Athlon 64 or Sempron (940 pin)
256MB DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM expandable to 4GB 1 Ok now that i found the spec for your computer here we go you can install the amd 64 x2 but not Phenom x4 9950
2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend. 3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer. hope this help please vote for me.
the computer should have the card in it. go to wal mart and look and some of them you will find one that will work. turn the computer off, take off the case, lay it on it's side take out the card, start up the computer, put in new disk, install software, turn computer off, lay it back on it's side, put the new card in, you will see how it goes in, case back on, start up computer. Your done!
