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 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.

I have a Tripp Lite G1010USB uninterruptible power supply that only powers the surge surge-suppressor outlets and not the battery-backup outlets. Unless the UPS is unplugged from the wall, and then i

You know they have a TWO YEAR Warranty ?

Sounds to me that it is faulty (one of the relays or switches is not providing 'through' power to the supposed 'backup' socket when the AC power is on.).

Have you followed the manual ?
available here

Have you done a 'self test' ?
'To Run a Self-Test: With your UPS plugged in and turned on, press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds. Continue holding the button until the alarm beeps several times and the UPS performs a self-test. See "Results of a Self-Test" below.
Note: You can leave connected equipment on during a self-test.' see manual

If the LCD does not give you the answer then it is faulty. Seems like something went faulty on restarting your UPS in the morning.

Seems like plenty of help available from this companys' website.

How to Avoid a Power Surge?

Recently my friend had a power surge happen on her laptop it was destroyed the power surge ended up cooking her motherboard. I would say and I think most would agree this is the most critical thing you can do to avoid a power outage that may damage your PC, Laptop or any other electrical component. <br /><br />Here is how I avoid this serious issue, first did you know that dust can conduct electricity? Not only does dust create a cooling barrier it can cause a fire inside of your computer. It is a good idea once a month to open up the case and blow out the computer. You can use canned air or a blower vacuum do this outside. <br /><br />There are settings that you can set to stop your computer from restarting after a power failure if these are not set the computer during a bumping surge which is on and off over and over again your machine will keep restarting during this time which can be a problem with shorting out components.<br /><br />To do this using Win XP simply right click on My Computer then Select Properties. Go to Advanced see in the graphic below where it says Automatically Restart un-check that. This way when a power failure happens the computer will not restart. <br /><br /><img src="jcrowder0027.jpg" /> <br /><br />I think you get the idea here. Although computers are less expensive these days, you still do not want to have to face a major repair due to a power failure. If you are using a laptop run it with the battery only during the rain and storm like conditions. Thanks for reading my articles and using FixYa!<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">John A.

I shut my computer down at night, but can't get on Internet next

There is no reason to shut down either the router or modem. My router and modem has power 24/7 with no issues for many years. Just leave them powered.

I think you should test your RAM module. If cleaning its edge connector with soft eraser doesn't work. But do this when unit is completely shutdown and no other power source is connected to it. Test the ram with a good spare module if this boot the system youre opt to buy a new one.

Internet connection

The problem may lie with your WiFi adapter on the 2nd computer.. these days NICs (adapters) have a Power Off capability and they will go to 'sleep' to save power.. you can try to resolve this through the Device Manager > Network Adapters > and the Properties of your WiFi adapter.. look for a tab on the Properties named Power Management..

Otherwise, it this is occuring on the WiFi Access Point, look for something in the interface to maintain Persistent Connections.. Since I do not use Netgear, I would have to find the manual to be sure.. but lets try the first option before we go on..
