Hi there and welcome

Can you please remove the power cable then hold the power button for 60 seconds down then release.

Then connect the power cable, power it on and tell me if it now starts correctly.

Let me know the results please.

ok, on the boot screen do you see HDD?

just done the esc method and its saying "windows boot manager or enter set up"
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.

Thanks

It is the hard drive that has faulted. The computer cannot see or communicate with it at all, and this is why it will not progress.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the Asus to have the hard drive replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
