    No POST at startup


    Hi, I am using an ASUS A540la ,with W10.
    At start I get no POST, just a blank screen, windows eventually loads and behaves normally, also if I try to access BIOS screen that also is blank and I have to restart to load windows.
    Does any one know a solution for this other than factory reset
    Thanx for any help

    Power On Self Test test all the hardware quickly to make sure it works and then allows you to boot the computer from a bootable device.
    If you are not getting POST then there is more then likely a hardware problem.
    Remove all external devices, USB drives, etc. restart and press F2 to load Setup (Bios) if the screen is blank after pressing F2, then press F7 next, this will load Optimized Default Bios settings. Press F10 to Save and Exit the Bios
    If this fails then Remove the Laptop Battery, and unplug the power adapter. Then try unplugging the CMOS Battery which will take disassembly, wait a few minutes and plug it back in, or better yet, replace the CMOS battery. .
