Check the power adapter and the jack it goes into , if the pin moves just a little the connection could be bad and new jack may be needed, or if you just installed ram, check that aslo

Asus Eee 1005HA hangs on boot

This works for my Asus Eee PC
1. Shut down and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button 10 times, next 1 minute pressing down.
3. Remove the memory and at the motherboard you'll see a clrrst (clear reset cmos..)
4. Short these 2 tiny pads by placing a tiny screw driver for 5 seconds, plug the power adapter and turn-on the switch, next wait at least for 3 seconds. Remove the power adapter.
5. Place back the battery and turn-on. You'll see the same screen (Logo of Asus) then patiently wait for at least 10 minutes or more. That's it.Good luck.

Model: A8M ID: 1C75N0AS180174 please help me identify the problem why this model suddenly didn't boot-up. After pressing the power button switch there comes the power light and after a while maybe 3-5...

Test the power supply first as a bad Capacitor or Diode could cause this. To test it plug it in and turn the computer on, when it cuts out unplug the adapter and check for voltage at the computer. If you have none the problem is the AC adapter. If you have voltage your problem is something on the board, most likely the CUP overheating from the fan not working or the fan not working is engaging the safety system to keep that from happening. The only way to tell for sure is to open the computer up and start testing the circuits. If any liquids have ever been spilled near the rear of the computer you'll have to check for shorts on the main board. Your going to need a multimeter and cooling spray for the IC chips. If it's a hot chip condition you can isolate that by spraying the ship with the cooling spray and if the computer comes back on you know that is the bad chip.

Hi, my Asus a8m has 512 mb of ram. I'm considering buying a macbook, but wondering if it would be worth upgrading to 1 or 2 mb of ram and having a professional 'clean out' my asus. Would it be worth it?...

max supported memory is 2GB (2x1GB sticks replacing your current memory). Yes, it'd be worth it to add more memory of you were keeping the machine, otherwise restore it to original configuration and sell it "as is". Don't get a professional, just used your ASUSes restore option to set it back to factory configuration.

Asus A6Km, only powers up for 3 seconds

- check the Fan. sometimes if the Fan is not working or has some obstruction making it to revolve slowly then it powers-off like this.

- if fan is perfect in those 3 mins, then get your power adaptor checked and also the power section of the laptop.
