I have a Asus EEE PC 701 4G that won't go past the bios screen. The keyboard isn't working either so I can't access the bios. I've tried a live OS on USB but it fails to load. It gets stuck at this screen: eee pc boot screen

Any thoughts on why this is happening? And how to fix it?

Unfortunately theres not light for the caps lock so I can't test this, but I have plugged in an external keyboard and still nothing. I have also tried to reinstall the BIOS, but to no avail.

Have you upgraded the RAM or the BIOS lately? – user111228 Jan 9 '12 at 17:33
Yes to the ram. Although I was given it in this condition, I upgraded the ram as I thought it might have been faulty, and I've been pressing the reset buttons and things. – Dean Jan 9 '12 at 17:38
@hesse ^ sorry forgot to mention you in the comment. – Dean Jan 9 '12 at 19:12
Check to see if the capslock light still toggles when it sticks. That will tell you if the computer is stuck or completely frozen – ChargerIIC Jan 9 '12 at 20:33
