If the PC does not to any beep then usually is a problem with the motherboard.

If the PC does a certain number of beeps on startup, then tell me how many beeps to troubleshoot the problem.

If the computer does single beep on startup as usual, then may be the monitor, monitor cable or graphic adapter.

Simple thing that you can do it yourself is disconnecting computer power cable from power outlet for 15 -12 mins. ac connect it back, this will solve troubles caused by electrostatic charges.
Also check video cable connections to monitor.
If you have another computer also test the monitor on other computer.
If the main unit is not booting (CD drives and internal fans often start up even if the Motherboard is blown). Then yo need to open the pc and test component inside.
If you have practice in fixing hardware you can start removing RAM modules and testing them, then buy a tester board for the MB and do a diagnostic test on motherboard.
Other options are taking PC to service or getting a new PC.
If the PC is still under guarantee, then contact Acer to validate your guarantee and get the machine to an authorised service centre.

I can only add 2Gig of Ram on my Acer Aspire t180 XP. The screen flickers when I add more. Help


The usual cause of screen flicker is a lack of power getting to the graphics card. The best way to check this is to remove another component to see if the flicker stops. If it does stop you need to upgrade the power supply.

Upgrading the power supply is a simple job. Let me know if you need more information on replacing the power supply.

The screen on my Acer Aspire t180 has shifted both horizontally and vertically so the borders that should be at the edge are now in the middle can this be fixed easily?


Either the wrong screen driver has been loaded or the screen is faulty.
Load Control Panel, select "Device Manager" and look for "Display Adapters". Open it and select "Drivers" then "Update Drivers".
If that doesn't fix it, you probably have a display hardware failure.
