Preface
Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information.
1.
This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION
decided for Acer's "global" product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product
competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g.
add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered
in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible
personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details.
2.
Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information
available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will
not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer
office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service
Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and
service of customer machines.

System Specifications
Overview
Aspire T130 will use AK32 (Aspire T310) chassis. It will be a low cost K8 solution with memory card reader
and firewire solution.
Aspire T130 is a versatile, high-power system, supporting AMD K8 CPUs (754). The computer uses
Peripheral Component Interface (PCI) and Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) design. This improves system
efficiency and helps the system support varied multimedia and software applications.
Aspire T130 has standard I/O interfaces such as a serial port, parallel port, PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports,
the system includes eight USB port(2 front access, 2 I/O bracket and the rest four have
been occupied by devices), two microphone ports and stereo line-out jacks (one at front and one at
rear panel) and a stereo line-in Jack (in rear panel) . The system can accommodate extra peripheral
equirement through those I/O ports. The system can also support an optional high-speed fax/data modem or
an additional LAN (local area network) card. Furthermore, the system is compatible with Windows XP Home
operating systems.

System Utilities
Most systems are already configured by the manufacturer or the dealer. There is no need to run
Setup when starting the computer unless you get a Run Setup message.
The Setup program loads configuration values into the battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM.
This memory area is not part of the system RAM.
NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery may be bad/flat. In this case, the system
cannot retain configuration values in CMOS.
Before you run Setup, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system reboots immediately
after you exit Setup.

The S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting

on both the disk drive and the host computer.
The disk drive software monitors the internal performance of
the motors, media, heads, and electronics of the drive. The
host software monitors the overall reliability status of the
drive. If a device failure is predicated, the host software,
through the Client WORKS S.M.A.R.Tapplet, warns the user
of the impending condition and advise appropriate action to
protect the data.

chipset) is lost and hardware maintains all system
context. S3 (STR): The S3 sleep mode is s powerdown state in which power is supplied only to
essential components such as main memory and
wake-capable devices and all system context is
saved to main memory. The information stored in
memory will be used to restore the PC to the
previous state when an wake-up event occurs.

Power-On Self-Test (POST)
Each time you turn on the system, the Power-on Self Test (POST) is initiated. Several items are tested during
POST, but is for the most part transparent to the user.
The Power-On Self Test (POST) is a BIOS procedure that boots the system, initializes and diagnoses the
system components, and controls the operation of the power-on password option. If POST discovers errors in
system operations at power-on, it displays error messages on screen, generates a check point code at port
80h or even halts the system if the error is fatal.
The main components on the main board that must be diagnosed and/or initialized by POST to ensure system
functionality are as follows:

Microprocessor with built-in numeric co-processor and cache memory subsystem
T
Direct Memory Access (DMA) controller
T

POST Check Points
When POST executes a task, it uses a series of preset numbers called check point to be latched at port 80h,
indicating the stages it is currently running. This latch can be read and shown on a debug board.
The following table describes the Acer common tasks carried out by POST. A unique check point number
represents each task.

POST Error Messages List
If you cannot run the diagnostics program tests but did receive a POST error message, use “POST Error
Messages List” to diagnose system problems. If you did not receive any error message, look for a description
of your error symptoms in “Error Sympton List”.
NOTE: When you have deemed it necessary to replace an FRU, and have done so, you must run a total
system check to ensure that no other activity has been affected by the change. This system check can
be done through the diagnostics program.
NOTE: Check all power supply voltages, switch, and jumper settings before you replace the main board. Also
check the power supply voltages if you have a “system no-power” condition.
NOTE: To diagnose a problem, first find the BIOS error messages in the left column. If directed to a check
procedure, replace the FRU indicated in the check procedure. If no check procedure is indicated, the
first Action/FRU listed in right column is the most likely cause.
