My Computer is ACER ASPIRE T180.
I bought it almost a year ago.

Everything is the same specs when you buy a T180, except that i added a graphics card MSI NX7800GT around 2 months ago.
Everything was working perfectly fine, till a few days ago, when i was just browsing the internet, it just hanged, or crashed.

So i did what i was suppose to do. ( i think)

Shut down the power and on the computer back again.
But after the incident, i can't boot up anymore. not even to BIOS. the monitor's blank, and the green light is not lit.
The CDrom Tray has this green light, where when it's green light lits, the 'hard disk' light lits too. (in red)
But the power light is not lit.

Any help would be much appreciated. thank you. :)

Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
Even though you have some lights your power supply may not be working correctly.
While this could be an issue with your processor, or motherboard as well let us look at the simple explanation first.
Can you trade the power supply for a known good power supply?
You can go here to read how to change a power supply.
Lets start here and go forward if the power supply is not the issue.
Thank you.
