PC wont boot up after power cut

Hi I have a pc with an ASUS M2A-VM motherboard running XP Pro 64 bit with AMD quad core processor.
I know little about pc's but have used safe mode etc
Anyway, the other day my power went off for a few seconds and the pc was on and running fine. After the power cut when I switched back on the screen went to the screen which shows the Asus motherboard but gets stuck there. If I press tab or DEL nothing happens. If I switch on and in the second before it gets to the screen above I keep pressing F8 or other keys I get the black screen where it checks memory etc but again stays on this screen and I cant get into any other options like safe mode etc
Would removing the battery from the MOBO do anything ? I have disconnected from the mains and switched on and off approx 20 times but nothing changes
Any thoughts or do I need a pc repair shop ?

Thanks in advance

Probably the power cut shorted one of the components on the computer.

Did you try to connect it to another PC, different port in the same PC? Are all SATA ports enabled on the motherboard? It may be problem with fault motherboard, sata/power cables or the hard drive itself.
If it's a second drive for you can you try connecting it through USB bridge to see will it work that way.

My acer desktop computer screen is black, the power says it is on but no pic, keeps cutting off, tried to back up and restore, cut off, says problem with windows and it shut off as well, HELP!

  • When the computer will not boot up, it sound like it is booting as the CPU fan is running and the lights are on. It also finds the CD ROM but it won't boot from a CD either.
  • Sometimes when you have a computer black screen on startup and the power switch light will be green and then turns to orange or amber. Everything is running.
  • Everything seems to be running but you can't see anything on the screen, not even a flashing cursor. Your black screen in Windows has occurred before the Windows logo screen:
  • 1- adapter or video card
  • 2-RAM
  • 3-and Black screen on startup with an amber flashing light
  • Not enough power getting to the motherboard.
  • A dead power supply.
  • A bent pin or shorted out USB port causing a problem.

My Floppy, CD ROM, and Tape Drive do not respond to inserted media - Gateway 4000847 Quad Xeon Processor Server Motherboard - Windows 2000 Pro NT sees CD & Floppy

Considering this is three different devices it means that there is a problem with the way the IDE and parallel device are connecting to the OS.
I would try removing the cables for 2 of the devices, then uninstall the remain device driver and reboot letting the device reinstall.
Once reinstalled test again, this may isolate the issue at the very least and could get one of the device up and running.

Duo core motherboards will not support the bus speed or the power output to power on that processor. You need to upgrade the motherboard with the new processor.

Do this model supporsts win xp service pack 2


This unit has a Pentium 4 2GHz single core processor, and does support Windows XP SP2.

The standard memory installed on this unit was 256KB RAM, in order to run XP efficently you will need to upgrade the RAM. I suggest upgrading RAM to the maximum amount allowed of 2 GB RAM.

To upgrade the RAM to 2 GB you will need 2 modules of 1GB PC2100 184 pin DIMM ECC each.
