PC powers on, but does not boot Why?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


Hi to al,

 I've had my desktop computer for about one year now. It is an Asus. In Last day afternoon, it was going a bit slow so I decided to restart it.  However, once it turned off, it will no longer turn on and boot up. 

The power button usually lights up, but now it does not. But, the decorative words "Asus" at the bottom of the tower still lights up. The DVD drive still opens, and a few lights blink on start up as usual. 

Please give me some advice about this problem

Hi Blackjan,

As I understand your Asus power is on but nothing comes up on the screen.  I have encountered customer's having this problem.  There could be two possible causes, either your monitor or your graphics card.

Check if your monitor is on, loose cables and stuff.

Check if it is your graphics card.

If your computer or system is still within warranty bring it to the shop where you bought it, they would usually give you a discount or replace parts for free, and the service is free too. 🙂

Hope this helps.

Hello Blackjan,

This seems to be an issue of your system’s physical memory or more specifically RAM (Random Access memory). Open the exterior case of your system and check for the modules of the RAM. If it has more than 1 module then try removing one another and test with the remaining one.

Hopefully your issue will be resolved.

If the computer no longer turns on when you try to restart it, check if the hard drive cable is not loose. Turn off your computer then open the CPU case. Next, disconnect all the cables from the hard drive. After this, connect the ribbon cable or data cable back to the hard drive. For the power supply, connect a different power supply cable to the hard drive.

This is for an IDE hard drive. If you have a SATA drive, disconnect and reconnect the SATA cable on the drive then connect the cable to a different SATA port on the motherboard. If you have an optical drive, disconnect the optical drive temporarily then start the CPU. Once the computer starts booting again, turn it off again then connect the optical drive back.

On the other hand, if your computer is beeping, try reseating the memory modules. With the CPU turned off, remove all the memory modules from the memory slot then insert them back. Try swapping their position like insert memory module one to memory slot two then memory module two to memory slot one.
