Re: ASUS EZ-PLUG not plugged in?
ASUS EZ_PLUG is optional for SLI mode...this model of your motherboard has an SLI that connect 2 video card using pci express...if this is only you problem for bugging the EZ_plug not connected,you can disable that in BIOS setup...

Try this site scroll down a bit:http://www.insidemylaptop.com/how-to-disassemble-asus-ux50v-laptop/ Have you tried to do a system restore? Maybe a "Cold Start", remove the AC plug, remove the AC plug, hold doen the on/off button for 10 seconds, replace battery, plug into AC outlet, re-boot. If that fails try again this time repeatedly tapping the F-8 key so you have options to restore/recovery etc.
Upgrading BIOS is dangerous and can
cause fatal damage to your PC. If you are aware of that and decide to
take this risk, then continute.
1. Visit http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us, search 1001HA and choose DOS as operating system. Download latest bios rom file.
2. Save and extract the downloaded file. You will get a rom file named like "1301.rom"
3. Format a usb pen drive to FAT-16 partition. In my case I used a
32 MB SD card which came with my old Kodak camera, and I used a SD card
reader that PC can see it as a usb disk. Copy 1301.rom to its root
folder and rename it to 1005HA.ROM. The reason for renaming it to
1005HA.ROM is that EZ Flash on this 1001HA netbook looks up rom with
this name. If EZ flash failed saying trying to find a rom file with
another name, just shutdown the netbook and rename your rom file to the
required name and try again.
4. Plug in the usb pen drive and reboot the netbook. Make sure that
during the ASUS splash screen, press ALT+F2. Then EZ Flash will run
automatically and try to locate the usb drive and read from file
1005HA.ROM (in my case).
5. It takes around one minute for me to upgrade everything. DO NOT TURN OFF OR EVEN TOUCH YOUR NETBOOK DURING UPGRADE. Read the messages on the screen and when it says you can press the shutdown button, you can turn off your system.
6. Turn on your netbook again and enter BIOS to check if the BIOS version is up to date. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61awfpVe49k&feature=player_detailpage
it seems to be a hardware issue. to find out whether the bios or the handling of components is causing trouble, do as follows
when booting up, press pause-button after video-card and RAM check, right when the system components are being listed(screen will halt) now look if two or more components(like network card, IDE-controllers) are using the same IRQ. If so this could be your problem, because then internal handling on the hardware side fails. to fix it, enter bios(press F1 orF2 orDEL during booting), set all the IRQ handling to auto mode and if there is an potion available: plug and play operation system, then disable it.
Now the BIOS manages all components, not windows(it has the capability, though) now boot up and in windows left-click start, goto: settings - control panel - add/remove hardware - hardware wizard run the wiz and if it does not find any problems u did it.
you need to go into the bios of your pc.....usually pressing the delete key when you see the first logo screen after booting up....look for a section that relates to errors and what the bios is supposed to do when it encounters an error.
i.e if you see a line in the bios that says "halt on all errors" disable it and when you next boot up the bios will not stall.
Unplug the router, Don't hook it to anything but you PC you are have the CD in. Use the cable that came with the unit, plug it into your pc ethernet port and one of the 4 ports marked LAN. Make sure not use the port marked WAN. Make sure you use the ethernet cable, not the USB. Power up the router, and put the easystart cd in. Once it autostarts, press the Easy Setup button on the router for about 8-10 sec. The Easy Setup on your screen should respond. From there out, follow the prompts.
For the manual, follow this link. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx
The quick start should solve your setup connection issues, if you have any. Also, make sure you have your firewalls disabled. And re-enable them what you are done, to be safe!
Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted.
Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.
