Question about ASUS Vintage-PH1 Barebone
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.
