Having problems with your Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop ?

My new acer aspire tower has an anoying hum. Is this normal?

Answers :

Hi Rick,
\015\012Ideally there will be some amount of noise emanating from any system, so its normal. The noise factor can be attributed to various components within your tower. Typical components that generate noise are:
\015\012CPU Fan - It usually runs at a speed of 1500 rpm
\015\012Hard Drive - There are circular metallic discs in the hard drive which run at a speed of about 7200 rpm for normal hard drives
\015\012Video Card Fan (if there is one)
\015\012SMPS/Power Supply fan
\015\012However, if the noise is very audible then you can try the following:
\015\012- Ensure that your tower is kept on a flat surface
\015\012- There are no obstructions around the power supply fan (found at the back of your tower)
\015\012- Power supply provided is proper and coming through a spike buster
\015\012If you feel that the noise level is high, then I would recommend contacting Acer support as it may be a problem with one of the fans or the way your motherboard has been fixed within the tower.

I have an Acer X1700 desktop - 3 days old by the way. Runs Vista Home Premium. 1 day after arrival, pushed power button. Monitor light is blue, flashes the Acer logo, then says "no signal" and blue light turns yellow. The fan in the tower which operates very quietly, normally, is very loud at that point. Have been able to power down the tower and the monitor, unplug all from the wall, hold the power button on the monitor down for 20 seconds or so, turn it all back on, and then it boots just fine
