Problem with boot

Sir, When i first put together this pc, I had issues intially with the ram. The pc wasn't booting so I experimented and found that I could only get 1 stick of 512 to work. Soon after that, I noticed that the PC wasn't detecting my CDROM drives. It now recognizes them, but once I got the system to recognize the drives, it goes to a screen that says "Wait..." and it does not go any further. The entire system locks up. I can get my windows install disc to boot, but it notifies me that it does not detect an IDE drive. I let the pc sit on the "Wait..." screen for 2 hours with no success. Any help would be great.

    It does detect the cd drives and during post it says it detects the hard drive. All the jumpers are fine. I just tried flashing the bios and it doesn't even boot now. I spoke with asus and they are going to send me a new bios chip.

Is your jumper setting in your cd drive correct? during boot up, does your computer detects your cd rom drives? cd rom drives must be in slave. Check also your ide cable, be sure its not connected reverse.

How to fix a Sony Vaio that has a black screen?


Try removing the ram chips and if you can get to it the button battery. Wait a few minutes then put it all back together and boot. If the issue was with the BIOS that will reset it.

Motherboard will power for only a split of a second


The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Not booting


There may be many issues, lets start with the most common one,
When the notebook is starting up press the button it states to "Enter Setup" (I mean BIOS). (May be F8 or DEL) {differnt for diffent machines}.
When entered, there find the Boot sequence under the boot ot boot order menu (This may also be different for diferent machines).

When found, there set the "First boot device to be "CD/DVD" not the IDE/HD/Hard Drive.

Not put the CD, it will boot hopefully.

If the problem prevails, or there is already CD as the 1st boot device.

Then don't hesitate to contact again, and also state the error you are getting when trying to boot.

It this was helpful, kindly do rate!
Always here to help!
Regards.

Powering On Issues


With the power not staying on, its a motherboard problem. Try another ac adapter just to be sure just to rule out a faulty ac adaptor.

Memory installation


bev,
all the DIM's must be of same type and same size to work, otherwise it creates problem, like no boot, boot with lowest memory etc.

There is no problem in your PC, its technical issue you can not use two ore more different type RAM at the same time in a motherborad.

Thanks

System cannot boot


huh that is odd, you might want to try f8ing the start up and running "Last know good configuration that worked" or you could try booting it in safe mode. You also might try reformating the drive you installed the updates too. Another thing that can cuase it is your RAM you might try booting with only one stick of RAM in. Try thoughs and let me know what you found out
