Hello,

My acer desktop acer aspire m1610, intel dual core processor, doesn't boot anymore. OS Vista Home Premium
Nothing on screen, no posting, machine beeps 1 longer pause then 2 short beeps, can here the fan,
new video card, still no change, cleared cmos, same thing, nothing on screen.
Machine is just a little over a year old and I am getting mad cause acer is not very supportive,
The HD died after 7 month, got a new hard drive, then in fall of 2008 the onboard video
didn't work anymore, just got a brand new video card.
What else could be the problem? Could it be the HD again?
If somebody has any idea on what else I could do to fix the issue.

Thank you in advance
Shaylee

Alt f10 is the answer keep hitting f10 on boot up to get back to factory settings.

one long and two short beeps is normally a video display adapter problem. I would remove and then reseat the video card and retest the system. Good Luck

Hello,

Thank you for the advise, I did this and it is not working. The video card is brand new, when I had the old card in, it made a horrible loud noise, so I got a new video card pci express and it doesn't work either.
What I also recognized is when I turn the pc on the lights are coming on just fine, the fans are running, after a few seconds the machine beeps and the light of the hard drive is going off. I took the video card out had the same result with the post beeping, black screen and so on. After reseating the video card, same issue I don't get anything on the screen, except for an amber blinking light that doesn't turn green on the monitor.
It is frustrating when nothing seems to work.
What else could it be???

The biggest problem with the Acer Aspires is the memory chips they use. They short out real easy, which causes a constant restart of the system. If you have more than one stick, try pulling them out and testing one at a time. If you only have one, replace it. In the bios, set the system to ignore all errors to make sure. If it's memory is will still reboot.
