Re: PC WONT START ASUS A7S8X-MX
So if i'm getting this correctly your computer will not boot even with just the basics. Have you tried directly shorting the pins on the mobo instead of using the power button? Unlikely problem but it would be an easy fix. You might also want to take your power supply out and get it tested. The geek squad at best buy will usually do that for free, or you can buy your own tester, or buy a cheap power supply. If both the switch and power supply are good and you get nothing trying to start it up it means you probably have a bad mobo. If your memory or cpu was bad and nothing else it would still boot up just without anything on the screen and might give you a series of beeps. Well I hope i've helped and that you can get this fixed soon.

HI there it sounds like your bios has reset if you download the quick start guide from the link bellow and set up your cpu type and set your hdd to auto detect hopfully that should get you booting .
If when you turn the pc off it looses the setting that you have put in and it fails to boot again you will need to replace the bios battery this can also be found in the manua and ony cost a quid or a cuople of dollars from you local pc store
Before you started disconnecting everything, did you notice whether the CPU fan was running or not?
If it failed for any reason, the CPU is fried; none of them will tolerate the lack of cooling for very long.
Also, bad memory can freeze a system for sure; if you have friend using compatible memory, beg him to let you swap yours into his board and vice versa. I've found failed memory more times than I can count and finally learned to substitute early and save a lot of time troubleshooting stuff that wasn't broken.
It pays to own a cheap multimeter so you can check the individual voltages from the main supply since they can very surely fail piecemeal and any outputs used must be there otherwise the train won't leave the station. Most supplies will have the available outputs lised on them.
Don't know in which country you reside but in the US, you can buy a usable digital meter for <$20 US any time and if near a Harbor Freight, they often have them for 3 lousy bucks.
BTW, the CMOS backup battery is way too young to have failed; three years is pretty much a minimum and I have replaced 8 year old batteries that finally couldn't hack it any longer.
I hope you know to take precautions before touching anything inside to discharge any static charge you might have from carpets or clothing.
Touching any part of the bare metal chassis after gaining access is adequate.
If you are using Windows XP:
Right click on "My Computer";
Click on Properties;
Click on Hardware Tab;
Verify that there is no Red or Yellow marked entry;
If there are, then drivers are not installed or there is a problem;
The drivers for the Asus A7S8X-MX are available at the Download pages of the Asus site. In "Input Model to Search", type "A7S8X-MX", in Select Category, choose "Drivers", click on "Search Info". On the new page click on link"A7S8X-MX", click on the "All" tab. Listed are all the downloadable drivers.
Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
