Customer Question

I bought a ASUS desk top computer in march 2016 and now it will not boot up. I get a screen saying ASUS INSPIRING INNOVATION * PERSISTENT PERFECTION and at the bottom it says Please press DEL or F2 to enter UEFI BOIOS setting and neither works. This is as far as it will go. Is this a soft ware or hard ware problem? Thank you Laura

Did this PC came with windows 10 or did you upgrade it to windows 10 ?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
it came with windows 10
Expert:  John replied 1 month ago.

When you selected the wipe hard drive it removed all including the OS that most like had caused the issue.

Let me see if there is a hidden recovery partition available on this model.

I did not select the wipe hard drive, I just turned it off and turned it on this morning.

You had already tried the going to bios using the F2 and del but the screen wont go past that am i correct

Expert:  John replied 1 month ago.

Sorry for the delay i was checking what all possibilities are there but it seems like this is a hardware issue mainly the hard drive which needs to be replaced but before that i suggest you remove the hard drive from the PC and then see if it goes to a blank screen which shows no bootable device error.In that way you can make sure its a hard drive or not.

Even after removing the hard drive it shows the same screen then its a motherboard issue.To check the motherboard in details you need to take it to a service center near you.

Are you clear?

Expert:  John replied 1 month ago.

Did you understand what i mentioned above ?

Is there anything else you like to know?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
thank you. I was thank it was a hard ware problem.
Expert:  John replied 1 month ago.

You are welcome.When it comes to hardware issue there is much we can do other than take it to a local service center sorry about that.
