One day i left the computer plugged for the whole day. when i came back i plugged it out. then i tried to turn on again the pc but it freeze when the windows xp logo came out. then i restart it then freeze when it's doing the memory scanning. after that whenever i turn it on only the YELLOW light in front of the casing only lights up and nothing else happens no boot sound whatsoever.
by the way the ram and harddrive were ok. and i have a new power supply unit. the video card was not ok. the processor and motherboard i was unable to check. i unplugged every connection inside, i even unseat the motherboard from the casing, and tried to put back things in except for the video card since there is an onboard vidcard.
this time it's the RED light turns on and still nothing happens. my motherboard is ASUS P4VP-MX and my processor is a 2.4ghz p4. hope you guys can answer my problem. thanks!

restart your compter During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart or you might try During the boot process tap thef8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer hope this helps:
Yes it is a possibity that the battery has something to do with this.
Take the battery out and try boot the computer on AC power only. If it boots up let it get to windows and then shut the system down, reinsert the battery and see if it will boot up with the battery in.
If it boot up problem solved, if it doesn't then the battery maybe defective.
Hello there: please try this first unplug the power to the computer next open the case and unplug all of the cables and cords that connect to the harddrive cd rom ect ect now locate the power supply cord that goes to the motherboard and disconnect press the power button on the computer for 20 seconds and also if you have a reset button press it . what this hoes is releases any stored esd that is in the computer .. now plug in the power supply back into the board and plug in the power cord and try to boot the computer and see if it comes on if so great just plug in the cords to the cd rom harddrive ect ect and than reboot and you should be ok
you have the "blue screen of death" i had this same problem and the easiest way to fix it is to take the hard drive out and put it into another computer back up all files you want to keep on it have a boot disk for the right windows operating system on it use the boot disk with it once it is back in the right computer and then put all the files you saved back on it. the blue screen of death occurs when there is a registry error on your computer. if the blue screen of death appears again then you need a new computer.
Open the computer, and you will see near the bottom right corner a blue jumper on 2 of 3 pins. The pins are J9J4 and the jumper should be on pins 1 and 2.
Turn off the computer and the power supply, remove the little round battery from the motherboard, move the blue jumper to pins 2 and 3 and wait 40 seconds. Reinstall the battery, and then move the blue jumper back to pins 1 and 2.
Turn on the power supply, restart the computer and the BIOS settup utility should appear
LEAVINGYOUR COMPUTER RUNING ALL THE TIME WILL NOT MATTER.

SHUT DOWN THE SYSTEM, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS SEATED, REMOVE THE MEMORY AND REINSTALL THEM, REMOVE THE CONNECTION FROM THE HHD AND MOTHERBOARD RE INSTALL THEM, REMOVE ADDITIONAL BOARD AND CARDS, UNPLUG MONITOR AND PLUG IT BACK IN, REMOVE ANY EXTRA USB CONNECTIONS UNTIL YOU TRY RESTART THE SYSTEM.
why don't you try plugging strait into a wall socket, (make sure the wall socket is good). The power strip my be faulty. If your system still does not boot. Got a spare power supply? We've got to work from the wall socket back to the board. Some power supply's have a fuse internally. Your's may have blown. Almost every PC at one time or another encounters a system power failure, (lights out in the whole house deal). It's the spike that we all worry about. I'm not suggesting you run out & buy a new power supply but you can take your's apart look for a blown fuse. Post back your findings. Let's hope the power strip was the trouble maker.
