Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
The drive hasn't worked since day 1, but I've been slow to address this. I tried swapping in a different drive, but that didn't work either. The computer recognizes the drive, but clicking and trying to read the disc will freeze the computer. Any idea what might be causing this? Thanks
Check your BIOS settings. I have seen some new BIOS settings have the IDE or SATA settings turned off. To get into the BIOS hit DEL or one of the F keys to get into the BIOS.
Also since this is VISTA, are you the computer administrator? Make sure that everything that could stop you is turned off. VISTA is known for blocking users from doing things on their computer even when they are the administrator. Go through all of the Settings and make sure that everything is turned off, and then if it works correctly, turn them back on 1 at a time to see which one stopped it from working. Ignore VISTA when it tells you that something is turned off. This is a problem that I do not like in VISTA.
