I have an old Eee PC Asus which although is useful to me and I wanted to give it a second life by changing the RAM memory.
Since this change, I can't restart the PC: only the electrical contact (blue led and fan on), the screen stay black.
Here are the details:
Eee PC ™ Seashell 1015PEM
Intel® Atom ™ N550 (Dual Core, 1.5GHz) Processor
Memory DDR3, 1 x SO-DIMM 1GB
Hard Drive 250GB
Windows 7 Starter (SP1)
Screen 10.1 "LED Backlight WSVGA (1024x600) Screen
WLAN 802.11 firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz
Original 1GB RAM change hynix 1RX8 PC - 10600S - 9-10 ==>change by B1 Corsair 2GB CMSO2GX3M1A11333C9 either PC3 - 10600 (1333 MHz)

The PC does not restart: the power LED is on, the screen remains black, the motherboard fan rotates. No sounds, no keyboard (no screen ...). It's like the PC was turned on but without BIOS or boot process. Or blocked because of hardware issue (bad link or motherboard out of order) ?
- Start with or without two sort of ram (1Go/2Go): same
- Power button down, battery removed and no sector energy: same
- Clear cmos via a contact screwdriver two golden arrows on motherboard (jumper equivalent) below the RAM slot: same
- Remove the cmos battery (the date would lose time, etc ...) same (the battery is removed to 3v: ok test battery)
- Test with an external monitor with RGB cable: same
Curious : as soon as you plug the computer sector plug without principal battery, the blue led power light on and the PC start automatically. Only turn it off by pressing 8s on power button or removing the charger.
- Irreversible shock on motherboard (hardware)?
- Mentioned in a forum, the bios would be blocked because it was in a Asus quick boost configuration option that would not allow for hardware changes. would it have taken uncheck before?
Bios is ancient origin and the site Asus we see that other versions have appeared that allow to find precisely the bios (mine have no emergency recovery bios ...)
- A part is missing / disconnected and the BIOS does not boot (RAM type that would be required for a start?)
- It must restart a process by unplugging somewhere or other?
What do you think of this case? Does he have a chance to start ?
Thank you in advance !
