So, here's my problem. Might as well start at the beginning..
Woke up yesterday, tried to turn on my computer, it turns on or so I thought and all I had to look at was a black screen. I always power it off when I go to bed, so it was not stuck in sleep mode.
I also wanted to note that when looking into the case while the computer was on, everything seems to be running and starting up fine. (everything was lite up where it should have been, fans running, hard-drivings a humming, keyboard and mouse are all lite up as well, ect.) There was one red light lite up on the mother board named "Boot Device LED". I have no idea if that was lite up before this all began but I wanted to mention it..
After trying to hook up my computer to two different monitors, as well as trying different cords and outputs, alas still nothing but a black screen. I could tell that the monitor was on, it was just projecting black and the monitor never said anything like 'no sync' and it never went to sleep. I tried taking out my video card and using the build in video card, but the same problem persisted.
Then, I tried moving the RAM to different parking spots - also tired only using one stick. To see if maybe one of them was corrupted or something. Still nothing but a black screen when trying to boot. I took apart my roomates computer and tried using his RAM in the many different combinations. Still no success.
It was suggested to try a CMOS reset. SO when taking the battery out, leaving it out for 10 minutes, putting it back in - this time when my computer booted it would show me the Asus logo but would not let me past it or into the BIOs. It just hangs there showing me the logo and says "press F2 or Del to enter BIOs settings". Pressing F2 or any keys I could think of would not let me into the BIOs. I tired plugging my keyboard into different USBs and never had a successful attempt. I also tried using a different keyboard as well.
It was also suggested to me that maybe I had a bad battery on my mother board and to go replace it, so I did just that - making sure to replace it with its exact same type. No success there ether.
My computer will not load past the Asus logo now. Nor can I get into the BIOs. blah. Any suggestions for me?
Asus Z87 A
intel core i5 (Not positive on this one)
Cool Master Hyper 212 Evo
Nvidia GeForce Gtx 770
RipjawsX - F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL
intel ssd 520 series
Windows 7 Professional 64bit
And from this morning...
My computer will not load past the Asus logo still. Nor can I get into the BIOs.
Now when I reset the computer a new issue comes forward...
The computer no longer recognizes the keyboard or mouse and a new red light now lights up on the motherboard called "CPU LED" and the previous red light "Boot Device LED" is no longer on... This started to happens when I hit the reset button and now sometimes happens even when turn the computer off and on again.
If I turn the power off and then turn the computer on again the old issue seems to come forward or this new one, seems to be random? ... its one or the other. (Old issue: The computer seems to recognize the mouse and keyboard and just the "Boot Device LED" light comes on.)
Thought I would add this update... Any thoughts?
