Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

My Acer Aspire AST180 shuts down with no warning

My desktop shuts down suddenly at random times. There doesn't seem to be a trigger and it shuts off and stays off. Sometimes it won't turn back on. It seems to help to unplug the power source from the back, let it sit for a minute, and then plug it back in. You can hear it power back up after you plug it in. Any ideas?

    It doesn't necessarily seem to have to do with heat.... sometimes it will shut off within 5 seconds of being turned on, sometimes it's 5 hours. And sometimes it will turn right back on, and sometimes it needs an hour.

Sounds like you have a faulty power supply. The internal parts of your pc produce alot of heat, and if a part is heating up, then it will cause your pc to shut off.

With you saying that unplugging it , and then waiting , and then it comes back on, it sounds like once some part has cooled off, then the pc works.

My bet would be your power supply. Do make sure however, that all your parts are still tight in their sockets.. ie processor, memory , etc. I saw a pc that shut off at random times because the heat sink didn't make good contact with the processor once in college. So you want to check those things.

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya Van Pham.

I have published a guide that deals with this very topic, it is entitled How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
You also may want to see the following guide entitled, How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Basically you will need to remove the CMOS battery found on the mainboard for a few seconds and then reinsert it again.

Take care!
