Last night I experienced a short power outage after a sudden thunder storm. My PC was running at the time. When I start it up it boots as far as the Asus screen but will not go further to launch Windows.
It does not respond to mouse or keyboard. (both USB)
The drive indicator light remains on without any flashing although the drives seem to be running.
After a couple of restarts it did boot into the Windows sign on screen but the USB ports were dead and I could not get any further
Do I have to assume the motherboard is damaged and will have to be replaced? I currently have an Asus 8NE whic is no longer available. Can anyone suggest a socket 939 replacement for this board?
have you tried running it in safe mode.or maybe try pressing the windows logo or ctrl alt del buttons at the same time.You can maybe get to system restore that way using your up down buttons on the keytboard.
