We've frequently had issues with surge protectors and replacing with a new one can save the day. Computers can be finicky and in situations where all other devices work fine on the power strip, the computer simply doesn't. Try a new/better one. And if that doesn't get it done, then install a new power supply in the computer.. They also can have issues, EVEN IF the computer is new.
Hope this helps.
I am at a loss and don't know what my next step is. Asus ET2300INTI new computer purchased with windows 8.1. Worked fine for approx 1 month and than i moved it to a different room in the house for one night. When attemptiing to move it back, the computer no longer receives any power or turns on in the old location through teh surge protector where i have everything else running. I have tested other electrical products in the same location and the computer is the only thing that will not work. It will not work in the room entirely and is as if it is attempting to pull too much power from the outlets/ surge protectors in that room. I thought the issue may have been the adaptor/ transformer box so i got that replaced. The computer will work in other random areas where there is no other inputs. Right now I am connected in the hallway directl to the outlet with no problem but if I attempted to run this through and extension cord or into the office, it will not turn on. I am at a loss and odn't even know what else to test at this point. iT is so confusing.
