Listen to the pattern of beeps, or look at the back of the computer to see the pattern of the diagnostic lights ( 4 lights just under the keyboard/mouse connectors) and check out this site to see what they mean:

Can i take the wifi from my dell optiplex 160l and put it in my acer computer?


The answer to your question will depend on what expansion slots your new Acer desktop computer has and whether one of these will match the specific 'half mini PCI-e' card which is used in the Dell Optiplex 160L per http://www.dell.com/uk/business/p/optiplex-160/pd which states it is an Optional Dell Wireless 1397 802.11BG Half Mini-PCIe card.
You will also need to obtain the device drivers for this wireless card in order to use it in the Acer.
Given that the Dell wireless card is only an 11/54MB standard card (802.11BG) I would recommend buying a newer 802.11N wireless card which will be sold with the necessary device driver and software applications needed, will give higher speed connectivity access and be much simpler to install and manage.

Dell Optiplex 160L Motherboard


Hi there is one more thing you should check before buying another mobo. Trace the wires from your on/off switch on the case, unplug it and then bridge the 2 pins out with a screw driver, this will start the computer. runit as normal, then shut down and see if you get a restart. If the computer does not restart on its own you have a faulty switch. Clean it or replace it. Regards mistyman
