Question about NZXT GUARDIAN ATX Mid-Tower Case

Eee pc won't turn on

For the 8 days my asus eee pc 4g surf hasn't been turning on. I hit the power button, and two lights come on (the hard drive light and the wireless card light) then the lights turn off. Also, when I plug it into a wall, those same to lights blink every 30 seconds or so as if I was repeatedly hitting the power button, but I never even touch the power button as it is doing this. I opened it up 3 days ago, and found a broken red fan wire, I soldered the wire back together, but it still won't turn on. the LCD screen is broken, so I unplugged it from the motherboard and tried turning it on again, but it still won't turn on. I have tried almost everything, including removing all the wires and pressing the power button. the power supply is fine, so is the battery, I checked them both.

here is a list of what i have tried doing already:
-unplugging lcd screen then pressing the power button.
-unplugging fan, speakers, mic, wireless card, RAM, bios battery ( i removed it then plugged it back in after a minute) then pressing the power button.
-i tried removing the laptop battery(not the bios battery) then pressing the power button.

After I did all of the above, I got the same result after pressing the power button, the hard drive light and the wifi light turn on for a split second, then turn off.

So what is wrong with my computer? and can I fix the computer?(if it can be fixed, please tell me in detail exactly what to do, because I am not that good with computers)(note: I already know that I would have to buy another lcd screen)

Sounds like you have a virus. Until you get it going again or remove the hard drive and run a good anti virus programme to check and clear the problems, try F9 at boot up.

Need restore disk plus for eee 4g surf

There is no restore disk, there's a hidden partition on the drive that you use to restore the computer.

Here's a link to your model, check out Asus's support page for help.

That link is for the linux version but if you go to the top left and search for "4g surf" you'll get an option for the XP version.

Hope this info helps.

My PC does not turn on

first, remove any external device as well as the ac adapter and the battery. while the ac adapter and battery is out, press and hold the power button for about 15seconds. then reconnect any power source and turn on the system. if it still doesnt turn on, remove memory, expansion cards, hard drive and optical drive then turn on the system. if it's still not turning on, the motherboard is faulty. but if it do turned on, reconnect the removed components one by one so you will determine which component is causing the issue. hope it'll help. good day. =)

Nothing happens when I hit the ON Button

Could be the power supply. With a bad power supply it will often shut down unexpectedly and then not turn on at all.

My eee pc 4G surf won't turn on. It started having problems when the power cord was bumped - causing it to immediately shut down. Then it just stopped booting all together. I replaced the power cord and...

Most likely, either the power jack inside the machine (jack itself or solder joints) or the plug on the power cord was damaged; obviously the plug is only a few dollars to replace, the jack also only a few dollars, but much more labor intensive. My experience tells me it's probably the power jack. If you have any way to externally charge your battery and, using it, find the machine operational, that pins it down pretty well. When the external supply is used, the internal battery is supposed to be switched out of the load circuit and into charging mode.

Eee pc won't turn on (I think have already posted this,not sure)

Sounds like a classic case of hardware failure!!!!!!! possibly your motherboard, start by removing the battery, hard drive and optical drive.
disconnect the laptop monitor and connect the laptop to an external monitor.
remove the memory modules clean the brass contacts with a eraser and place back in the machine 1 at a time to check to see if they work, remember to plug in the AC power suppy, if you see the post screen then its a memory issue and you can then reconnect your laptop monitor to see if it lights up, if everything works but the monitor then its the inverter or backlight that has blown and is easily repairable saving you money on a brand new screen
