Is this from startup, or does it crash after running fine for a while?

Have you checked the keyboards light? Is it lit? When you press on the CAPSLOCK button, does the light changes in the keyboard?

Try to unplug the hard drive, and DVD from the mobo and see if it goes well.

If no go, try removing the RAM sticks and see what's on the screen when you turn it on. Then put each part back one by one, checking the computer for any change or something like that.

Restore to factory default


Most Acer M1640's can be restored to factory settings using the following method:

1. Start with the computer off.
2. Power on the unit, this should cause the Acer POST screen to appear.
3. During the Acer POST screen, press and hold the Alt key on your keyboard, and tap the F10 key on your keyboard.
4.If timed correctly, this should cause the unit to go to a black screen that says "Windows is loading files...".
5. After the "Windows is loading files" screen you should be in Acer e-recovery management. At this point follow the on-screen instructions to restore the unit to factory defaults.

Check the processor on the machine first: is it seated properly, is the cooling fan turning on it. Next, reseat all of the memory modules in the case. Finally, test the keyboard and mouse and confirm they work; try a different keyboard and mouse on the machine. Listen for any unusual noises in the case (any noises that sound out of the ordinary), try running the machine with the side panel off if possible.

You may be correct about the hard drive failure.
But to make sure that it is the hard drive and not Vista, I would try to run the recovery cd that came with the unit. When the cd boots up, select "repair" and let it attempt to fix the problem. If the recovery fails, I would call the warranty Company for service.
