Hi all I have an ASUS laptop that will not boot. When plugged it with the adaptor the charging light comes on and when I press the power buttton the backlight turns on but the screen remains black. I do not see the asus logo or any screen for that matter. I try to boot into bios by pressing the f2 key multiple times but the computer is unresponsive. I noticed the hard disk light powers on and works for a few seconds and then turns off but the screen remains black. Also the caps lock and num lock keys are usually turned on.

A little background on the laptop:

**My battery is old and dying it only charges to 32% and it constantly says i need to replace the battery.

**It now does not run off battery power at all if the laptop becomes unplugged it loses power and shuts down

** I have experienced this black screen before when the laptop lost power when the adapter became unplugged from the laptop outlet.

**I have solved this problem before by removing the battery and adapter holding the power button down for 30 seconds and turning it back on

**Last night there was a thunderstorm and the power went out for a second do to the lightning. I was on my laptop when the power went out and the laptop shut down immediately. I have the laptop connected to a surge protector and the green light on the surge protector says PROTECTED so I think it is highly unlikey it received a surge


I am thinking the loss of power resulted in a short circuit. IS THIS POSSIBLE??

Connecting the laptop to an external monitor did nothing.

Anything I could do to try and save this laptop?

I know its not the battery because I have turned the computer on without the battery before and it was functional. Now even when the battery is removed I receive the black screen and it will not boot.


PLEASE HELP!!

You can try removing the battery, removing the AC adapter cable, and then press the power button a few times. This drains the current from the EC chip. Give the laptop a minute or two, then connect your battery and AC adapter again and try it.

If still no go, then try removing the hard drive and then booting the system. Sometimes shorts with the sATA port/connection cause the system to not POST either.

Good luck!

Asus laptops are notorious for this type of problem, which in older models is normally due to repeated overheating. How old is your laptop? If it is no longer in warranty, then your repair options can be quite costly. I had an Asus M51 which after 2 years use suddenly gave me the same problem.
