Hi,

Remove all external devices, CDs, AC Adapter and battery from the computer. Keep the AC Adapter and battery unplugged.
Hold the power button down for 20-30 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
Plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
Normally power on the notebook.
If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.

If the issue persists, or you have any questions, please be back and let me know.

Hi,

If it is a desktop, remove all external devices, CDs, all cables including power, monitor, keyboard and mouse from the CPU. Then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After doing the same, reinsert power, monitor and keyboard cables, and turn on the computer.

Thank you.

Hi,

How old the computer is? Is it under warranty?

Can you open the cover, remove and reinsert the RAM sticks?

I opened up the drive, took it out and put it back in. Turned on computer and its still on the same screen.
Expert:  Shefin replied 9 months ago.

Hi,

Follow the instructions in the link below. Instead of upgrading the RAM, remove it and replace it after two minutes.

Try both hard drive and RAM.

Thank you.

Expert:  Shefin replied 9 months ago.

Hi,

Have you tried turning On without connecting the hard drive. Check if you get the same message without the hard drive.

Thank you.

it says REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE OR INSERT BOOT MEDIA IN SELECTED BOOT DEVICE AND PRESS A KEY
Expert:  Shefin replied 9 months ago.

Hi,

That means the computer is working fine without the hard drive. Try connecting the hard drive and check if you are getting the same response.

Thank you.

Hi,

Are you getting the same Asus logo with the hard drive in?

Thank you.

Expert:  Shefin replied 9 months ago.

Hi,

It seems that the computer is unable to detect the hard drive and unable to boot. The issue may happen because of a bad Hard drive or RAM. I would suggest you contact a nearby repair shop and check the issue. Most probably, it will be the hard drive.

I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

Thank you.
