That sounds like the GPU is cooked. The CPU is heating up trying to drive the GPU that is not responding.

SOURCE: The bios update failed on my 4g asus eeepc

What you need to do is to get the manual for the motherboard os you can reset the BIOS. On the other hand, you may not be able to preform that. This model is like a netbook and try this, remove the battery and the power cord. give it 15min. put the battery back in and reboot the system and than the power cord. that should help. if not, than a tech person is your next step.

SOURCE: AMD Puma-based Asus M51Ta stalls at power up, screen is blank.

Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios?
If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first.
Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.

If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

SOURCE: I have Asus Eee pc 901 installed with Windows xp

It sounds like you may have 2 problems. 1) as you've state you have a virus; this being the case I suggest reinstalling your operating system. 2) if it's blue screening at BIOS then you most likely have an issue with your memory\RAM. The virus shouldn't be causing it to blue screen while in the BIOS; although it's not unheard of. When you reinstall Windows you will lose everything. You can restore; if you have a recovery partition, by tapping F8 while booting up. It should go to a black screen with white text. If you see Utilities or Recovery, then select that and press enter. If you don't have a recovery partition then you will have to use a recovery disc to reinstall. If you don't have a disc or a CD\DVD ROM then you will be better off taking it to a repair shop where they should have what is needed to reinstall your operating system.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

My samsung n145 plus netbook was shut down during windows updates. Now when it's powered up all I get is the blue light to indicate this and nothing on the screen. It just stays black.


If it was shut down whilst in the middle of installing updates then you might have a corrupt start up file . Try to boot into safe mode --tap the f8 key while your computer is booting then on the menu select safe mode or safe mode with networking . If you can boot here go into administrator account and try to to do a windows restore .if successful you can then re-download the windows up-date and install it properly.. If you cant access safe mode then you might have to repair the boot records which is too technical to explain in detail here .

I hope this helps

Asus aspire laptop has black screen w 2 windows 1 has @ top says administrator:cmd.exe the other says safe mode in all corners how can i fix this


Your computer has booted into Safe Mode. A simple restart should fix and boot it back to normal. If it boots back into Safe Mode, Shut it down, then turn it back on while holding the Escape key. On the screen that comes up use the arrow keys to select Normal Startup, and press Enter.

PC shuts down while running Windows


Attempt to boot the machine in Safe-Mode.

While powering up continuously hit F8.

You will get a Boot Option Menu, Select Safe-Mode boot

If you can get into safe-mode I would suggest to try doing an online scan, as it sounds like your issue could be related to malware:

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.
