Re: AcerPower 1000-EA380M No Video
Open the cover,try to find jumper "c-mos clear",probably is green,or red. put it on,then power on the machine abaut 3 -5 sec.then shut it down. then put the jumper in prevoius position and start macine normaly.on screen you have a note "c-mos clear,enter setup......",enter set up and chose auto configuration,save and exit and everything is ok.

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk and remains active until turned off. make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery sockets are clean and dust free and the ram modules are securely seated in some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection
and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ? one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly
These kind of beeps usually is an identification for ram or cpu errors. I have to know your exact model of the computer and the kind of beeps (e.g. 1 short - 1 long or 2 shorts - 1 long or 1 short repeatly, don't worry there is no problem if your computer beeps for some seconds) in order to tell you if it's ram or cpu problem.

Good day. Primary culprit is your motherboard and the processor. But just to be sure, check your power supply cables going to your board and the voltage. Next, to isolate the problem and the board/cpu, remove all the device (cards, memory, drives, etc.) then power on, if there still no beeps then your board is dead, no way to check for the processor unless you have a good processor. Good luck
Hi! Try to go to bios menu via F2 or del while system is starting up.Go to sata operation, change IDE to AHCI or vice versa, save settings then try to reinstall os(win xp) again via booting to the disc (F12) and choose cd/dvd or odd...hope this helps...Cheers!!!
More likely it's from overheating; if it would be from the power supply ithe shutdown would be more random.
But it could also be a malware infection - especially if it happens EXACTLY after the same amount of time . Check what processes are active just before shutdown .
You definitely have a hardware issue so you need to go through a process of elimination to figure out what it is.
1) try another video card (if you are using a video card) 2) try your on-board video (if you have it) 3) take a look at your motherboard to see if any capacitors look bulged 4) try another power supply (although the computer is getting power, it might not be getting "good" power)
Usually if it is the memory you will at least get a beep. This sounds like it is probably your mobo if it isn't your video card.
I had to start my acerpower 1000 four or five times. When it boots into windows, it lasts for about a minute, then shuts off.
When booting into safe mode, the PC will stay on forever. I would think a hardware problem would cause it to always shut off.
This is not a solution, but something I have observed about these machines.
If it has onboard video and you've added a video card, sometimes you need to disable the onboard video in the BIOS as it won't send output to both when they are there. I would try a different monitor and eliminate that as a possibility also.
