Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Slow boot up. ACER

My house lost power from an electronical storm. Power immediately came back up, but my ACER T180 Aspire now sits on the "Acer" boot up screen for 10 or more minutes with no activity showing on the hard drive light, before finally tapping into the hard drive and booting up. Everything else seems to work fine, but now my boot takes 10 minutes or more now when physically powering it up. I did the the safe mode, chkdsk c:/f, etc. No problems there. Did the brown out kick in a long diagnostic option now?

Thanks

Hi.

There is a problem with the on-board video or the graphics card. If you have a standalone graphics card in the computer take it out, clean the slot and the brass contacts on the card and re-seat it.
Also reset the CMOS by removing the power cord and take out the motherboard battery for 20 minutes. Re-insert the battery and power cord and see of the computer will boot up with a display on-screen.



Good luck.
