Question about ASUS Vintage-PH1 Barebone

Unable to restart computer

I recently shut down my asus computer during a windstorm,thinking I'd spare it the shock of a power surge. The next morning I pushed the restart button to turn it back on and nothing happened, I checked the power source and it was working, unplugged it for a while but still nothing, there's a little green light that is blinking in the rear of the box so I know something is working, I'm not computer savvy for sure and am at a loss as to what may have happened, it was working fine until that time, help!

The little green light is telling you that there is power to the Motherboard (MB) I would reset the CMOS on the Motherboard...boot into the BIOS to check that the hard drive is seen by the PC.and go from there...
Here is a link to the Asus Manual which shows you how to Clear the CLRTC..(CMOS) Look for section 4.3 on Jumpers.Clearing the memory built into the MB just sets it back to the defaults so dont worry about hurting anything while you perform this task...I can also tell you that When you clear this that there is no bells or whistles clashing cymbals or otherwise signal that tells you you have accomplished the task...you have to have faith that its done...Simply move the plastic jumper to the prescribed location and count to three then move it back to its original location...Secondly these parts are small and the writing on the MB is smaller so sometimes a magnifying glass is essential...Let me know how it works for you..

Asus also has the Recover Pro utility which is an always available recovery tool. It stores user data, applications and the operating system in the host-protected area of the hard drive. Users can easily recover system to their original factory conditions or to a more recent state without restore CDs. No need to worry about losing data due to virus attacks.

Asus p5nd motherboard won't start when power button is pushed, but the motherboard light stays on..


Most probably your power supply. An SLI rig will draw a lot of power for the graphics and for a power supply in a system like this to have lasted 5 years is amazing. They don't last forever. You could buy a PSU tester (about 10 GBP) and confirm it. But if you have to buy a new one look for one that is at least 25percent more powerful than your old one and has at least a bronze efficiency rating. (silver would be better) and buy one from a known brand such as Antec, Chillmaster, or OCZ.

sounds like its an over heating issue,i would check the fans to make sure they are all working and clean.Check that the cpu has thermal paste and that it still good(if its stiff or crumbles when you take off the heatsink it needs to be replaced)also check the memory is seatted all the way in.

I have a hp computer that we recently moved from one room to another..and now..i can not log into it.."it" keeps asking me for original password and there is no way i can locate it..i tried calling hp...


Try to log in using the account name administrator and no password.
If you cannot change the account name press CTRL+ ALT+DELETE two times then type administrator for the user name. Do not type a password in the password box just click OK and hope that who set up the computer did not select a password. If this works proceed to the next paragraph, if it did not restart your computer pressing the F8 key during the boot screen until you can select the safe mode.
When you get into windows select start then run. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK. Select your user name which you forgot the password and select Reset Password. Type in a new password and select OK. You now have a new password for that account.

It is possible this is caused by overheating. Check the power supply fan first, probably in the back of your computer tower. Do you feel any airflow? If so, the next thing to check would be the CPU fan/heat sink. Many motherboards have a temperature gauge software nowadays, or you can download one for free online to see how hot your CPU is running.

2 Possible solutions:
  1. Replace Power Supply if there is no air flow.
  2. Put in a new Processor Heatsink/Fan
