Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

My computer won't boot up

Gets stuck at the Acer screen like everyone else. I have tried everything, I've used my HDD in another computer and it works fine. So I'm wondering if it is the motherboard.

Why doesnt my compter get past the booting screen?


Early in the post stage, bad ram or failing hard drive.

Do all the following with the PC unplugged:

Remove cables from Hard drive - pay attention to where the go back, turn on pc and see if it goes further (if it does, you probably have a failing hdd and should seek professional help immediately. Don't keep trying it, else you lose everything for sure.

If that doesn't work, plug the hdd back in and again with power UNPLUGGED, remove one of the ram sticks. Turn pc on.

If works, you have a bad stick or slot, if still nothing, put ram back in and take out next stick. Repeat until you find the problem.

My computer turns on but is stuck on the acer screen del: enter setup and f12: boot menu are there but keyboard won't respond I've tried everything


First unplud everything except the monitor and keyboard from the system. This can help to narrow down the problem. If it boots after doing this then one by one plug everything back in until you find the problem device.

Also try leaving it on the Acer screen for a while to see if you eventually get an error code. You might even have to let it set there for 30 minutes or so.

Once I turn on the laptop it stays stuck on the LG Splash screen, I press F2 to enter bios setup but it just stays on the splash screen, and nothing progresses, I can't do anything,


I've seen issues like this with a bad hard drive. When entering the bios it queries the hard drive first and it's got issues it can hang it up like this. If you have a spare try that. You can try to boot it without a hard drive to see if it gets past this. Some computers won't boot without a hd though. If you've got another computer you can look around online to make a flash drive bootable and use that instead of your hard drive. Lastly, get a new hd.

System completely locked out... will not boot!


there will be a setting in the BIOS that will stop the ACER logo, and you can see the Diagnostic screen, and get an idea of where in the process it is hanging....

Personally I bet it is hanging at the 'detect SATA' devices stage.

Open the side panel and remove and re-seat all SATA device cables, at BOTH the device and the motherboard.

If that fails, then the boot sector may need to be repaired on the hard drive. you will need a Windows disk for the OS that your client has though....although if it's an MBR disk you can use an XP or a win2k disk to repair. There are downloadable tools in iso format that you can burn and use to boot from the CD and then repair the boot-sector ...

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot


You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.
