Desktop won't turn on properly after coming from sleep
Ever since then I have had NOTHING BUT ISSUES. This is obviously a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", but I just don't get how an issue like this could result from it.
It's happened 3 times (basically everyday when I come out of sleep overnight), since I took it apart. I power on the Asus PC from sleep (when sat overnight or at least a good amount of hours) and nothing happens. My TV doesn't reconize the signal despite it being plugged in and the keyboard won't even be reconized. I unplug and plug back in the HDMI cable - nothing. Tried another cable, nothing. Tried unplugged from the TV - nothing.
Tried another wired keyboard to see if it would read it, nothing. But the PC still reads other USB stuff like my hub. Wierd. So I unplug the hub from the PC and plug the keyboard into thos same USB ports - nothing.
But here is the kicker, the PC is on, the LED lights are on, it's running and sounds normal.
So I do a hard shutdown and nothing. I power cycle it like how Asus told me - turn PC off (even if it's a hard shutdown by holding the power button until it powers off), then unplug the power supply from it to the wall and hold the power button on the PC for 30secs. Plug back in, power on. Well last night I had to do this 7 times before the PC finally showed a picture on the TV. Now it's happening again.
I also did a power cycle like Asus told me through the bios by hitting F5 to load default values.
Now this morning, I couldn't get the damn thing to show up again on my TV. USB keyboard doesn't light up either. I had to plugged and unplug the damn thing from the power cord like 10 times to get the picture to show again, honestly maybe even more! Frustrated. WTF?!
Here is the thing, when I finally got it working last night, I did some testing. I put the PC to sleep about 4 or 5 times, then started it back up again. I turned it off a few times. No issues at all. So it seems to be mainly an issue when the PC has been sleeping for a bunch of hours.
What do I do now? This is seriously a result of me taking the case off and taking off a few tiny screws? Nothing from the PC even got disassembled.
Should I just leave the PC on all the time and never turn it off or put it to sleep? Should I smash it to pieces?
Any idea what the heck is causing this odd issue? I mean I have power cycled it over and over and there is no way I am going to put up with having to plug and unplug and do 34 hard shutdowns each time just to get this thing on.
