6 months ago I put away my P4-533, carefully packing it and put it in the garage. It was running properly when I put it away. Today I need a file from it and have tried to restart it. When I hook it up and hit the button, nothing happens at all. No LED light, no fans, no nothing. Am I overlooking something trivial, or what?

Re: ASUS P4-533 won't power up.
Hi, Please disconnect all the connectors and put them one by one and try following DYI 1.Refix the connectors and the check the power is coming. 2.If the power is coming in the machine and the fans are moving then the issue is with the RAM refixing open the cabinet and then refix the RAM module and it will work.

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.
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.
Make sure the internal VGA cable is connected on both ends and that the scree power is plugged in a good rule to follow when building/putting back together laptops is to try to test it with everything plugged in before screwing hope that helps =]
There should ba a tiny hole on the front of the tray cover on the drive. Switch off, get a paper clip or something about the same thickness and insert it carefully in to the hole, push it in until the tray opens.
Shouldn't be hard to find one at your local computer repair store, just get specs from old one. Be careful and label your wires before taking them off to put on the new one so they don't get messed up.
Asus liveupdate, from everything Ive read, is very unreliable... Dont try to rely on it, try to go to the asus website if you need a bios update and take care of it there. theyll have read me's on how to do it-- it's not that hard, but you should have a good reason to update the bios as if you do it wrong, you could be in more trouble than you need.
Sounds like the HD (Hard drive) has failed you. That's the TICKing sound you hear.Hard drives used to hardly ever fail today its common.You can send the HD off to have the Information saved if its priceless information I would, if not then I would buy a new HD and install it fresh.
