    Some ideas:

    Broken power switch?

    Power switch connector unplugged from motherboard? (Maybe by accident when you were checking for the number??)

    Bad power supply? (How old is the PC?)

The light on the motherboard will be on as soon as you plug the power supply in.
If, when you turn on the computer, the fan in the power supply does not start, your power supply is bad. In my experience, the switch in an ATX machine does not go bad--it's just a device to close a contact. If you really want to check it, though, find the place on the motherboard (lower right side as you are looking at the board with the top of the case away from you) where the wires from the front panel are plugged in--the ones that say pwr switch or something like that. When I do this, I remove the wires from the motherboard and short the two prongs where the wires were fastened.
In all probability, though, you need a new power supply.

Card installation


1) Turn the computer on. When Windows has loaded all the way, put the Installation (CD) disk in your optical drive. Load the software.

No disk? Go to the Sound Card manufacturers website, and download the software. Now INSTALL it.

If asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off.

FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions, and computer unplugged from power, open the computer case, and physically install the Sound Card.

Close the computer case, do not forget to hook up the audio wires to your sound card.
Plug computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

2) Doesn't have a sound adapter card, and is just Integrated Audio?
Download AND install the audio drivers from Asus for that motherboard, AND Operating System you are using.
(Win XP and Win 7, are two examples of an O/S)

Need further guidance than this?
Post the Sound Card manufacturer and Model Number.
Also post the model number of the Asus motherboard.
Post in a Comment.

Compaq 615 laptop just hung, i removed the battery then tried to boot again but showed nothing


Hi

Not enough information.

It would be helpful to know if this machine running XP, Vista or Win 7.

Can you hear the CPU beep during boot?

Do the lights come/blink on on the front of the laptop?

All this information is important if you want accurate advice to help solve your problem.

If you have a desktop PC monitor available, connect this to the laptop's VGA port and press the Fn (function) key simultaneously with the F5 or F6 key (the key showing 2 monitors) while booting, to send the image to the external monitor.

If you can see images on the external monitor, then your laptop may have (in ascending order of seriousness/cost of repair), an LCD panel inverter fault/failure, a cold cathode backlight fault/failure, an LCD panel fault/failure, a graphics card fault/failure, a motherboard power management system fault/failure, a motherboard fault/failure.

Sorrry to not be able to be more precise.

Hope this helps.

To make sure you install back again your Windows Vista and Windows XP is this.
First:
  1. Go to Bios Setup and change the setting of your Hard Disk drive from Sata to IDE mode.
  2. Boot priority the CD/DVD Rom to run your Bootable CD/DVD.
This setting are quietly working, good luck!

I have a DFI AM75-TC motherboard, 3beeps, no video


Hi richardbyers, three short beeps means there is a problem with your memory. (Base 64K memory failure). Unplug the power from the PC. Open the case & touch the bare metal on the case to discharge your self.
Remove the memory & reseat it. Leave the case opened & re-connect the power cord & try booting again. If you still hear three short beeps, shut the system down again as mentioned above. Gather some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Drip a drop or two onto a cotton tip & wipe the memory's contacts, both sides & do not touch the contacts with your fingers during re-install or cleaning. Blow the memory slots out with canned air or use a clean paint brush. Insert the memory again & connect the power cord. Boot the PC. Try this first. If everything works out than good. If the problem does not clear its self let me know.

Good luck richardbyers!
