Try this... pull out the video cards and boot the system. If the system boots, then the graphics cards are the problem. What type of cards are they?

I have a aspire t-180,is there a video card that has to be taken out first before installing geforce 8400 ?


Regularly the video card (VGA port) is integrated into the motherboard (as pictured). You can install a new card using one of the PCI connector (can be white or yellow as in photo). After intalling the new video card you can go to Control Panel - Divice Manager a disable the old video card

Can I upgrade my processor? If so what do you suggest? I am currently running 3.5 gb of ram on windows 7 home edition.


Unless you are doing significant CPU demanding programs, that probably is not why your system is slow. A new video card, faster disk or SDD, etc. will give you more performance.
Prebuilt PC's use Mobo's that are made specifically for the retailer and can be very difficult to identify therefore, finding a new processor is very tough.

I have a acer aspire t180 desktop with a 250gb hitachi scsi (ide) hd. I would like to know which hard drives are compatible so that I can exchange it. thanks


It's a SATA harddrive, not SCSI.

Serial ATA

Acer Support > Aspire T180 > Specifications >

http://www.acersupport.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT180/AspireT180sp2.shtml

Will use up to a 400GB SATA harddrive according to Acer.

IDE stands for Integrated Drive Electronics.
Another name is PATA.
Parallel ATA
Used to distinguish between IDE and SATA.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Drive_Electronics

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI

Exchange it?
Your harddrive has the Operating System on it.
A new harddrive will not have an O/S on it.
(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

It would be much easier to install the harddrive you wish into an external enclosure, and plug the external enclosure's USB cable into your T180.

One example of a desktop size harddrive SATA external enclosure,
(3.5 inch SATA external enclosure.
3 and 1/2 inches across in width, for a desktop harddrive.
Laptop HD's are 2.5)

You need a higher computer specification for Windows 7.

Acer Aspire T310 is design only for Windows XP Home/Professional and Windows 2000 according to Acer Support Page:
