  My Asus X551C can't turn on

Okay so I know it was here before but it wasn't solved. I have Asus X551C and it can't be turned on. It happened before but after few attempts it finally worked but now it's been dead for two days. It happened after I replaced CMOS battery. So when I press power the green light lights up for a second and I can hear HDD sound, like it's trying to run but cannot. Power cable is also pluged in and green light is on. I did the battery reset 100 times now so You can save that tip :) I put HDD in another laptop and it couldn't boot Windows. So I run it on Ubuntu and it said that the HDD is in a hibernation mode. I don't really remember if I shut it down or just folded, anyway HDD worms in Ubuntu I can browse it but can't run Windows from it. Any ideas?

I have the same problem. My computer is 7 months old. I left for vacation for 3 weeks so I shut it down before I left. I come back today and turn it on it won't recognize my password. After multiple tries I decide to reset. It says I need a USB flashdrive to do this. ok I connect it and everything goes black. It will not reboot and there are no power lights lit on the front even though it is connected power. Yes I made sure there was power - plugged into a different power strip where other things were working. No lights. No power. I'm stumped.

A few years ago, when I was using an XP OS PC I faced the same issue. But at that time I inserted the OS CD into the disc bay and opted for repair. It repaired the OS on HDD and after a restart the system started as a normal PC.

May be you should also try this step if you have a windows 7 OS or thumb drive.

Mine is Windows 10 - and they don't come with a CD. I have no lights at all - like no power. I checked the power cord and it works on another computer.
