This is only a stab in the dark but are all your M/board fixing connected correctly Hard drive etc. One other way is to disconnect everything from M/board except for Video and memory and try to boot up if it does then connect hard drive etc one at a time rebooting each time until it will not boot that is the wrongly connected one

Another option is through the Internet. Launch the utility:
Start > Programs > Asus > ASUSUpdate
Follow the directions.
There is also ASUS EZ Flash.
Make sure that you do have a copy of your current or original BIOS, if
you have the CD that came with the MoBo then you are golden.
maybe incompatible or possibly your board is faulty or your processor is faulty if one is new don't think its not faulty iv had faulty components that cost me a couple of hundred that have just came out of the box so try another processor and if it works its your core duo so replace it if not its your board but first try doing a bios update this an usually solve a few problems if not replace you faulty component hope this has been of help
Hi, I am assuming that your question is how to access the bios for your pc. The most common bios entry is to hit the DEL button after switching on. If this does not work, try F2 or F1 buttons after switching on. Other than these, I am unaware of any other methods for entering the BIOS. Best wishes, Graemevm
The Acer M1610 was available with the following processors: Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Pentium Dual-Core, Intel Pentium D/4, Intel Celeron D/4 2.0GHz.
Based on this information, It is likely that you can support a Core Duo or a Core 2 Duo, however may be limited to the 2.0GHz models due to clock and multiplier limitations on the BIOS. This may be different if there is BIOS upgrades to support faster processors.
Your best option of the above listed processors will be the Core 2 Duo, however their system specifications report that only the Core 2 with 800MHz or less Front Side Bus are supported.
Also note that the Celeron 430 is a 64bit processor, so it is not likely to work on this system either.
it is the problem your computer operating system or motherboard bios setup problem . You restart your pc after restart then press dell key then prevew your bios setup option then choice bios defalt setup then press F10 press Y restart your pc .
anniegms, I had the same problem with a new Asus board running a Dual Core Duo Quad processor. The boards BIOS was not updated to handle the Dual Core Duo yet. I had to switch processors to a P4. Use a different PC to make a BIOS update disk. Update the BIOS and switch processors back. But I had all the same symptoms of yours. However I did/do have a PCI-E XFX Fatality (Nvida) based graphics card. I would check or swap processors, it sounds like the board is waking up but not the processor. Just my thoughts.... PCdok
