I have a problem with my Acer AM5641 desktop PC (obviously). The PC is pluged-in and the CPU can be heard processing, but nothing is is responding i.e the monitor nor mouse is responding to being pluged into the CPU the lights for each is not coming on. If the PC is booting up, I can not be sure as the monitor is none responsive. The components, that is the mouse and monitor works fine when attached to a differnt processer.

Recover to original state using Acer eRecovery Managemet tool.
press alt+F10 during boot-up process. This opens eReovery main page. unless you have changed it, the password is six zeros (0s). Click recovery actions. Select RESTORE FACTORY DEFAULT IMAGE. Once you've confirmed that you wish to proceed the computer will reboot and start to restore the system from the image contained in the HIDDEN PARTITION on the hard drive.
If you removed the memory modules and there is no change then I would start disconnecting one device at a time to see if that is causing the problem. Start by disconnecting the cd/dvd rom and then try booting the computer. Then try disconnecting any floppy drives or pci cards(except for video card). If it has a pci/agp video card then you will need to remove it and test it in another computer or test a working one in the problem computer. If it has built-in video then you will need to test a working video card in the problem computer. It could also be an issue with the power supply so remove it and test it in another computer or swap it out with a known working power supply. Also check the mother board screws that hold the board to the chassi are tight(the board uses them as a ground). Blow any dust out of the case and verify that there are no loose connectors. Also verify that the monitor is not the problem by testing it with another computer. Usually when a CPU is defective the computer will not respond to anything and will act "dead" so it does not sound like the CPU. If everything else checks out then it could be a bad motherboard.
Yes definitely. Install any good sound card into a PCI slot. If you have WinXP Pro. as OS then it will automatically pick up the driver. If you are using Vista then buy a Vista compatible sound card.....sodeep
