Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

3 Answers

Ive brought a new gaming rig, as follows CPU: Athlon II X2 240, 2.8Ghz MBD: Biostar TA770E AM3 / DDR2 / SATA RAM: 2GB DDR2 800MHz Case: CoolerMaster Elite 330 PSU: WinPower 450w One 300gb Sata drive One 160gb Sata drive One LG Dvd Writer Graphic card: MSI Geforce 9500gt MD1G-OC/D2 Now when i first got it no problems at all, i could play Crysis, Cryostatis, Riddick, Saw and Mass Effect. All on high and max settings, running fine. Two weeks later it wouldnt let me play any of these games without shutting down, 2-5 mins into a game i would hear a click and it would turn off but the computer would still be running half the time. I thought it was a graphic card problem so i swapped with my geforce 7500GT and it still crashed, i removed one of my sata and dvd drive and still the problem consists? [code] The cpu is at a 22-30°C Graphic cards are at 45-60°C And the case is well ventilated. There is no dust on either card or cpu. And these are all new parts? I also did test using CoreTemp & CpuID Here are the results CPUID:,0x100F62 Processor:,AMD AMD Athlon II X2 240 (Regor) Platform:,(null) Revision:,DA-C2 Session start:,20:34:50 - November 11 - 2009 Time,CPU 0 Temp.,,CPU 0,Low temp.,High temp.,Core load,CPU speed, 20:35:00,23°,,,23°,25°,5%,2800.17 MHz, 20:35:10,25°,,,23°,25°,65%,2800.17 MHz, 20:35:20,27°,,,23°,27°,31%,2800.17 MHz, 20:35:30,27°,,,23°,27°,61%,2800.17 MHz, 20:35:40,28°,,,23°,29°,31%,2800.17 MHz, CPUID HWMonitor Report ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Binaries ------------------------------------------------------------------------- HWMonitor version 1.1.5.0 Monitoring ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mainboard Model TA770E (0x00000178 - 0x005C18A0) LPCIO ------------------------------------------------------------------------- LPCIO Vendor ITE LPCIO Model IT8718 LPCIO Vendor ID 0x90 LPCIO Chip ID 0x8718 LPCIO Revision ID 0x5 Config Mode I/O address 0x2E Config Mode LDN 0x4 Config Mode registers 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 87 18 05 10 00 00 EC 07 C0 88 00 00 1F 00 00 00 30 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 50 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 60 0E 80 0E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 70 00 02 00 00 04 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 Register space LPC, base address = 0x0E80 Hardware Monitors ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hardware monitor ITE IT87 Voltage 0 0.98 Volts [0x3D] (CPU VCORE) Voltage 1 1.14 Volts [0x47] (VIN1) Voltage 2 3.33 Volts [0xD0] (+3.3V) Voltage 3 5.03 Volts [0xBB] (+5V) Voltage 4 12.10 Volts [0xBD] (+12V) Voltage 5 -7.74 Volts [0x79] (-12V) Voltage 6 -4.80 Volts [0x4B] (-5V) Voltage 7 4.92 Volts [0xB7] (+5V VCCH) Voltage 8 3.15 Volts [0xC5] (VBAT) Temperature 0 21°C (69°F) [0x15] (TMPIN0) Temperature 1 31°C (87°F) [0x1F] (TMPIN1) Fan 0 1448 RPM [0x1D2] (FANIN0) Fan 1 1245 RPM [0x21E] (FANIN1) Register space LPC, base address = 0x0E80 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F 00 13 10 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 14 C9 07 D2 1E FF 10 FF FF FF 77 D7 7F 7F 80 01 02 FF FF FF FF FF FF 20 3D 47 D0 BC BD 79 4B B7 C5 14 1F 80 80 0B FE FE 30 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 FF 00 40 7F 7F 7F 7F 7F 7F 5F 74 2D 40 9C 22 FF FF FF FF 50 FF 03 7F 7F 7F 50 FF 08 90 00 06 12 60 00 00 00 60 7F 7F 7F 00 00 02 FF FF 7F 7F 7F 00 00 62 FF FF 70 0A 14 7F 11 2E 02 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 80 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 90 FF 00 00 00 FF 00 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF A0 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF B0 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF C0 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF D0 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF E0 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF F0 FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF Hardware monitor ACPI Temperature 0 31°C (87°F) [0xBE2] (THRM) Hardware monitor AMD Athlon II X2 240 Temperature 0 23°C (73°F) [0xB8] (Core #0) Temperature 1 23°C (73°F) [0xB7] (Core #1) Hardware monitor NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT Temperature 0 50°C (121°F) (GPU Core) Hardware monitor Maxtor 6Y160M0 Temperature 0 25°C (76°F) [0x19] (Assembly) Hardware monitor WDC WD3200JS-00PDB0 Temperature 0 32°C (89°F) [0x20] (Assembly) Processors ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Number of processors 1 Number of threads 2 APICs ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Processor 0 -- Core 0 -- Thread 0 0 -- Core 1 -- Thread 0 1 Processors Information ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Processor 1 ID = 0 Number of cores 2 (max 4) Number of threads 2 (max 2) Name AMD Athlon II X2 240 Codename Regor Specification AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 240 Processor Package Socket AM3 (939) CPUID F.6.2 Extended CPUID 10.6 Brand ID 13 Core Stepping DA-C2 Technology 45 nm Core Speed 800.1 MHz Multiplier x FSB 4.0 x 200.0 MHz HT Link speed 2000.3 MHz Stock frequency 2800 MHz Instructions sets MMX (+), 3DNow!

These new graphics cards pull a lot of power from the power supply. I know you didn't start off having this issue but given the symptoms you are experiencing I'd take a closer look at the power supply and perhaps replace it with a 650 watt or better.

Thing to know there is no such thing as a power supply thats gives you full power usally prebuilt pc's have the worst powersupply they can get away with for instance your 450 watt psu is probably only putting out 60% of the 450 so i suggest getting a 650 silver or gold version as they put out 70 and 80% of there power i myself use a 650 gold and it runs a gtx650 16 gig ddr3 an i5 cpu and 3 sata hard drives also a soundblaster recon 3d sound card

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.


Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

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!

2 GB DDR2 on Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H Motherboard


Hello

That's normal condition. Probably your RAM shares it's capacity with internal video card (which uses the whole 256MB)

More info can be found on Wikipedia:

Computer crashes when playing games


you have ruled out the video card
and since cooling does not seem to be an issue on you cpu, your next step is to switch your power supply
after that one is ruled out,
your next replacement is your motherboard.

good luck man!

Hardware upgrade required for autocad 2009


Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2
