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)

Computer wont turn on

Make sure the tower is getting power. There will be a green light on the back of the tower where the power cord goes. Make sure the cord is snug and that it is securely plugged in to your power source - I'm hoping it is a power surge strip and in which case, make sure the surge strip didn't get unplugged or turned off. If you have it plugged directly in to the wall then make sure that outlet has power by plugging something else in to it that you know works. After doing all of this, make check to see if there is a light on the back of your pc. If not, unplug the power from the back of the tower, wait 30 seconds at least, and then plug it back in. Hit the power button on the front just once, if it doesn't power up, press and hold the button in for a 2 seconds and release. If that doesn't work, your power supply may have gone bad. That happens from time to time. Good luck, hope this helps!

make sure your computer is set to boot from your hard

Restart you computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the F2 or the Delete key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the navigate to advanced bios features using the arrows keys press enter change your first boot device toyour hard drive press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master

or the operating system might not be detecting the hard drive
make sure all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive have secure dust free connections

hope this helps

I've inserted PC/system hard drive into enclosure and connected by USB port to my stand-alone computer . . .How do I recognize or where do I find the menu to allow me to access the attachment/enclosure...

You do not have to do anything out of the ordinary for it to recognise. Connect the USB cable to the PC. If the hard drive is above 250Gb in capacity, connect the external power supply to it. Turn on any switc/buttons in the casing. Your PC should detect it as a Mass Storage device or as a regular hard disk.

Read the labels for the connectors on the motherboard.

Polarity does not matter for the POWER and RESET buttons.

If the lamps for AC-POWER or HARD-DRIVE-ACTIVITY do not light-up when you expect them, then reverse the connector.

Try the PC SPEAKER connection one way, and then shutdown
the computer, reserve the connection, and start the computer.
If the "beep" at start-up is better, leave it as-is.
If the "beep" does not happen, or is quieter/distorted, reverse the connector.

Power supply lighting up but when I push the ''On'' button there is

Most if not all pc power supply’s have a short circuit protection feature that will not allow themselves to turn on if there is any type of short in the system

Example being : one day on my pc here one of the extra power plugs for the cd rom drives (the ones that are there for adding more drives with red,2blk,and ylw wires) was hanging down in the back of the case out of view and some how managed to make a perfect connection with one of the positive wires and a little notch on the metal case resulting in pc not turning on.

Also i have seen some rare times where a screw that was lose in the case had fallen between the motherboard and the metal panel that the board is mounted to causing a short which prevented the computer from turning on.

If you have gonna as far as changing power supply’s then you might as well remove the whole board and then putting it back in but only connecting the power supply first to see if it turns on with just the board and the power button connected and if it does then install each component one at a time testing it in between until it stops working again to be able to tell which device it is.

if it does not turn on with just the power supply and the board by it self then check the capacitors on the board usually the ones closest t o the CPU to see if any of the tops of them look like they are popped up (they should be perfectly flat on top and the lines perfect and if one of them are even the slightest bit rounded on top like they swelled up a little then the board is history...Hopefully this is not the case and to make this easier for you here is a pic I uploaded to my website for you so you can see the difference
