    Hi thanks, for the fast responce but still no joy! I think its because there is a problem with the motherboard every-thing seems fine, but there should be a light on the keyboard to gain control when I hit the Del button or F12 as it says on the ACER screen nothing happens like I can't put any input in if you know what I mean. Ive done the tapping Del & F2 F12 Esc buttons and everything else.... If I could just get into the BIOS!!!



    also I've tried half a dozen keyboards none of them light up to Indicate that the keyboard works! Caps lock Num lock extra



    Cheers for the help!

Hi there, again no theres no beeps and its going no futher than the white ACER screen and ive tried the ribbon cable making sure its connected correctly. usually there should be a single beep before the post start-up? and the light on keyboard still not on! you dont think its a chip on the motherboard that the keyboard goes into? new motherboard perhaps!!

cheers again

Hi,
Bios usually has to be entered initially at system bootup, sometimes within seconds of it starting.
There are usually three possible bios entry settings, depending on the systems bios manufacturer.
Try tapping repeatadly, either F2 Esc or Delete at system startup.

    Hi,

    No problem. now is the time to experiment.

    i always say if it,s broken, theres nothing to lose.

    are you getting any post-code beeps at start-up ?

    i,d remove the actual keyboard from the computer itself, and check the ribbon cable is inserted correctly, to the motherboard.

    if you,ve already tried, external keyboards.

    there is a possibility, of a system virus. or a corrupt bios.

    if the computer will boot into windows, does the mouse still work.

    if not can you add an external mouse, either by ps2 connector or similar. at least then you,d be able to run some diagnostic software.

check your removable media disk drives and make sure that you don't have like a jump drive or CD-Rom that the computer doesn't like. If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS setup (usually F2, F12, ESC or something like that....check the bottom of the screen.) and find the Boot Order settings & move hard drive to #1

Acer Aspire T180 - Booting Problem


You can attempt to remove the bios chip and reinstall it or replace it with another. They are available. Do a google  search.  It has been my experience that if one cannot get into the bios that the Mother board is shot and I then replace it, not gambling on replacing the bios chip.

Acer T180 frozen on the Acer Logo Screen


I would believe it's a problem with your motherboard. If you warranty covers it, tell Acer about the problem and have someone fix it. Otherwise, find a PC repair shop near you, and take it in to have it tested. Make sure you figure out what is wrong exactly before you buy new parts if you take it to a repair shop.

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.
