SOURCE: Power light turns amber after shut down

Firstly please install Service pack 2, there are too any security problems with service pack one and power settings problems, this can be ordered free of charge from Microsoft or downloaded. When you say it boots up when you plug it in do you mean it comes out of Hibernation and returns to the desktop saying programmes are running or does it do a full boot up. Sounds as if you need to go into the bios to enable ACPI, see this post on how it's done. http://www.fixya.com/support/t121839-monitor_turns_off_automatically. Go into control panel>power options and click advanced tab to make sure the power button at bottom reads 'when i press the power button on my computer' 'SHUTDOWN' Then on the hibernation untick enable to see if it cures it.

SOURCE: Not Booting

Hi, This is an old board trying to run a hungry CPU. From the symptom you describe the poor thing may be wearing out right in front of you. Anyhow, - In order of likelihood your problem(s) are probably:
1 - Defective motherboard. PC chips is well known as a maker of cheap mobos. When run even a little hot they have a short lifespan. A 3Ghz Pentium Prescott needs a lot of power. A faulty part may not always kill a session but it can ruin your life. Try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz. See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling the support chips may help. Best solution is replace this old warrior with a new mobo. You will also need a new PSU & CPU if this is the problem. Except for playing games, even slow dual core CPUs will perform better than a single core unit.
2 - Bad PSU. These also wear out, especially if run hot. Best solution is new PSU. If you do this, get a modern model that will handle a mobo upgrade should that also become necessary. Many options & prices here - be careful.
3 - Bad PCI card or RAM. If you already haven't - try removing all unnecessary hardware... then test for problem. Switch your DDR2 RAM in & out to test for defect.
4 - Bad CPU. Not likely but possible. try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz(if this mobo lets you). See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling might be the hot tip

SOURCE: # 1,3,4 light up for about 2 seconds but pc doesnt boot

Try a different monitor. If it does the same thing then the problem is with the computer. It could be a lot of things. I would first test the memory. Take out all of the memory sticks, re-insert one at a time and power up. If it boots with any one stick of memory then the problem lies with one of the other memory sticks. Also make sure the cooling fans are all working, especially the fan on the CPU. Some computers will not boot if this fan goes bad. These are a couple of easy things to test and beyond that it could be a lot of things: Power supply, graphics card, hard drive etc. You can find ways to test these things on these pages.

Why will my Asus transformer tf101 not boot up can it be fixed ?


Three possible solutions, from mild to drastic--hope one of them can help.
1) In my experience, the battery can drop below a threshold voltage quite suddenly and cause the boot-up to freeze, or not start at all. Before you do anything else, be sure it's *fully* charged by leaving the tablet switched off and plugged into the charger for at least 12 hours. Then try starting it normally. If it still doesn't start up,

2) Try holding the power button down for a long press, at least 10-15 seconds. Sometimes this is enough to kick it into action. If not, you could try the nuclear option--

3) --a hard reset, which could be achieved by pressing a straightened paper clip into a small hole (*not* the headphone socket), or by holding down the power button and pressing the volume-up or volume-down button and then following on-screen instructions (check your manual). Note that this will erase all your user data and you should back up everything first, but if you can't boot I don't see how you could accomplish this.

Good luck!

TF700 WON'T TURN ON


There are a couple things to try.

Possible Problem: The tablet may have gone to sleep and a newly installed app or update is preventing the tablet from coming out of hibernation.

Solution: The tablet likely needs to re-start.

The trick is to know whether your tablet is in hibernation (actually running but not screen is turned off) or if it is actually turned off.

Scenario 1, tablet is on but is in hibernation mode
1. Press and hold the power button until you feel the vibrate. Then release. Wait 3 minutes (to make sure the tablet shuts down). After the 3 minutes go to scenario 2

Scenario 2, tablet is turned off.
1. Press and hold the power button. Keep pressing even after you feel the vibration (for about 30 seconds).

Other possible solutions:
If that does not work, then ...

2. Disconnect the tablet from the keyboard and press and hold (same as step 1 scenario 2).

3. If the others methods do not work, connect the tablet to a PC (with internet connection). Leave the tablet connected for a minimum of 30 minutes, but upto 2 hours. With the tablet connected to the PC, press and hold the power button (same as step 1 scenario 2).

If none of those worked, connect the tablet to a TV or monitor using the HDMI connection. If the TV/monitor displays the tablet, then use the display on the TV to reset to factory defaults and force a re-boot. While it is shutting down, disconnect from the TV.

If that does not work, check the user manual for how to reset the tablet to factory default settings.

Last but not least, contact Asus support because you might have to send it for service. But I suspect scenario 1 will work for you.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Screen not displaying. and fun starts and stops, remains stand by when restarted the fun runs and stops stand by.


hello there,

I got the same problem but it came gradually...

In fact for a full month when I first boot the computer, the fans runs, no extra beeps, the light blinked correctly but no bios at the screeen. I remarked also that the fans run full speed doing a lot of noise. Then I stopped the computer and wait 2 minutes and then it always works correclty at the second boot with the bios screen appearing. Also, the fan calm down after 1 second with less noise. So when I start the computer and hear that the fan calm down with less noise after 1 second, I know that the computer will boot correctly. That happens always at the second try after waiting 2 minutes. But since yesterday, the fans never calm down and the noise still remains high with no Bios at the screen. I'm suspecting the Power Supply...

i hope my i dea can help you.

Most likley you have a fried power supply. Try this first unplug the computer from the power cord for 5 minutes then plug back in and go into safe mode see how to go into safe mode below.

To start the computer in safe mode 1.
You should print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2.
2.
Click Start and then click Shut Down.
3.
In the drop-down list of the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
4.
As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.
5.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
6.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

Laptop wont switch on fully


Did you press F8 as you boot up to get boot up options and did try the Last Known good Configuration and Safe Mode?
If these didn't work I suggest you re-install Windows.

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run


Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
