Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
My ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 motherboard suddenly started sitting on the full-screen motherboard picture for long time periods (about 1-2 minutes) and then doesn't load up my operating systems. It seems as though my hard drives are listed out of order as well - even when I manually change them to the correct position in the bios.
Try taking out the harddrive and putting it in another computer. Boot up the computer and see if window does a scan disc for errors before booting the system if it does then you know that something corrupted your system. the next step is to allow the other computer fix the hard drive with repair disc tools in the properties of the harddrive.Do a scan disc and automatic fix errors scan. Also do a scan disc and restore bad sectors fix. Do a complete of the defrag of the disc.If this is not the problem.You will need to check the bios ans see if it has become corrupted. check all the functions and see if anything has changed from your original settings. If it has do a restore by loading default settings.Try to boot up your computer and remove any new programs you may have downloaded just before you started having the problems. If you cannot boot go into the bios again and change the boot sequence to disc and load the windows disc to boot in safe mode to try to remove the programs.See if the system restores to normal operations. If not use the discs repair function to fix problems with windows that may have happened from the corruption.This problem could also be a hardware problem like a bad power supply or motherboard. These should be tested for problems before doing all the windows and hardrrive testing. Just to make sure you are not going in the wrong direction with the repair. Check the power supply with a power supply tester to see if it is working correctly, check to see if its is full of dust and dirt tha maybe affecting its operation. do a check of the condition of the motherboard for bad components like capacitors that maybe causing a problem with voltage regulation to the boards processors.Check the main processor and its heatsink and make sure that it is seated properly and the fan is working correctly.If all this look good and working, then work on the harddrive and windows problems.Be sure to test the operation of the system after each fix or repair to see if you have foun the problem.I hope this helps you with your problem.
