SOURCE: Acer Aspire T180-UB72 does not boot

I have the same model and had the same problem. Fortunately there is a simple fix - unplug all your USB devices (mouses, printers etc). It should now boot!

Assuming that fixed it, it was trying to boot from a USB drive for some unknown reason. I think it was due to the latest windows XP update. Wierd. Hit F12 next time you reboot and make sure it is booting from hard disk first.

SOURCE: acer aspire not booting up

Dear f1at3r1c

Righteo then, you should be starting by resetting your BIOS, and you can do this by removing the outer casing o the PC tower. Once yoiu have done this you then need to find the jumper that clears the CMOS/ BIOS. Now if you are somewhat unsure of what a jumper switch is, it just consists of a smallplatic cap which covers two metal conductive pins on the motherboard. There is usually a pin which is not covered.

Now once you have found the CMOS/ BIOS jumper setting, you will need to first remove the motherboard battery. The battery is nothing more than a glorified watch battery of the CR2032 type, and it will be silver in colour and obviously round in shape (typical cell battery).

Once you have removed the battery, you will need to then clear the CMOS/ BIOS and this is done by moving that jumper switch into the clear position. The pin that is exposed will need to be covered withthe plastic jumper, and the pin on the opposite side will need to be exposed. Leave the jumper in the clear position for about 10-20 seconds or so, and then replace it back to the original position. (doing this discharges all of the electricity in the BIOS/ CMOS chip). Once you have done this, you put the battery back in place and then start the machine, then you are good to go. Start the machine and enter the BIOS as you planned to do. You might want to consider ormatting your hard disk and re-installing windows or whatever operating system you have, and this is eeasy enough, just change the boot sequence to boot from your CD/ DVD drive first, the your hard drive second. Once its loaded up, re-enter the BIOS and reset it back to HDD first.

Now f this has not worked, then you have an oooopsie (this is my saying of oh ***T, oops, something has malfunctioned. Its more than likely to be hardware driven, so take out your hard drive first and try to boot, if it lets you bios, then you found your fault. Try this with all devices until you either find the fault, or you have narrowed this to your processor/ motherboard.


Now im sure this will solve your problem, but there is one thng you should need to know about, and it is how to identify the correct jumper. This will have either any of the following markings written on the motherboard very close to the where the jumper is. You may need glasses/ magnifyer lens in order to read the lettering, but it should say one of the following things.

CLRCMOS
CLCMOS
CLRBIOS
CMOSRST
RESET
CMOSRT
BIOSRST
CMOSCLR
CLEAR
could also be under J1, JUMPER1

Now im sure that this is the fixya for you, but if this still does not work, then please get hold of me, and i will provide you with more info.

I wish you all the best, and hope you manage to solve this issue sortly

kind regards

yours sincerely

Oz

SOURCE: The desktop will not boot up. It's got power and sounds okay but

If you are able to get windows up you can restore it in a earlier time when it was working perfectly, this is if you have the 'restore point' on your pc. Other option if to use 'Last know good configuration'

The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the computer started successfully.

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:

  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.c697747.gif

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.


1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

My monitor won't start


There must be a connection problem from monitor to pc, check the pins to see if any are bent in the plug to the pc. If it is a seperate graphics card, check that it is seated correctly in the agp (brown) slot and not come loose. Try booting in safe mode (F8) on boot and select boot Windows in safe mode(this will run pc with normal vga driver and not the graphics driver), and see if it stays on, if it does it is a graphics card driver fault, so re install.
