Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
Basically there are 3 possibilities for on board video card failure
To fix the problem please follow the below steps
1.First of all unplug the power cord to avoid any shocks
2.First reset C MOS , to reset C MOS. Remove the case side panel and using the instructions provided in the motherboard manual, locate the three jumpers used to clear C MOS. Your motherboard will have a jumper shorting two pins usually labeled normal operation. Remove jumper shorting pins one and two, and replace that same jumper on pins two and three
4.Then plug the power and
Your system will not power up. Remove the Clear C MOS jumper from pins two and three, and replace it on pins one and two. Power up System. The system will require you to enter setup and correct the default settings. If clearing C MOS had no effect, you will not see anything on your screen when you power is back up.
If the above did not work then proceed further,
Enter setup, fix the date and time, and you should be in good shape, as most newer computer systems will automatically detect the rest of your setting.
While software driver errors can be fixed, this is something that can only be dealt with if you have some form of video function. If the screen is black, try clearing C MOS, as described above, and otherwise proceed to the next step.
Now the last step is to replace the video card.
Have great day.

You should just have to plug the card in to the PCI slot and install the drivers. After thats done try removing the driver for the onboard graphics I had onboard switched to a geforce 8800 and it worked just fine for me. Did you say your running a Dell?
