Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook
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)
(i just realized I accidently posted this in the wrong category before i posted it here, sorry, new to the site)
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

Can you connect through a "wired" connection? Is your router connected to the Internet? If you're using wireless encryption, have you told your netbook what that encryption key is?
