    My Acer Aspire T180 freezes up on the Acer boot screen. I cannot even open up the bios or do anything. I know it is not the OS.

    I have the same problem too. It restarted after a Windows update then when it came back on all the appeared was the logo. it seemed to take longer loading so i left it for a bit. half an hour later it was still there. it presents you with the options for setup or boot menu but you can't access them. it just gets locked up. can someone help please because i have some important things on it.

I suggest you do this: When the Acer screen pops up, hold Alt and tap F10, doing this will restore your computer to factory settings.

I got mine to work again. I just unplugged everything except the monitor and a PS2 keyboard and mouse. Then it came right back on. Then I plugged in everything else.

I had same problem. Found out it was something to do with my HP photosmart printer. Disconnected the printer and computer booted up straight away with no problem. Hope this helps.

The windows has to be reinstalled ( Formatting the Hard Disk with DATA LOSS ) Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer.
To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the netbook.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
  5. Select ' completely restore to factory defaults
If this is not working, then get the Factory Recovery CD's to reinstall windows.

WILL not resetting to factory settings


You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.

Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.

How do you reset Acer Aspire T180-GB7Z PC


Perform a system recovery:
Does not come with recovery cd's - there is a program that allows you to burn the disks or
recover.
3 ways:

1. If in Windows - Start - Programs - Acer empowering technology - Acer E-recovery management -
click on Restore at bottom then "Restore to factory default settings"
2. Or click on Burn disks instead of restore
3. if unable to ge into Windows then Alt/F10 during boot right after Acer splash screen on startup
