i have had my asus laptop for a little over a month, and so far i have had problems with my sound (left speaker keeps popping on and off), my keyboard(doesn't allow me to type at all), and most recently i go to turn my computer on and the screen automatically goes black after start up. my brother even did the whole pull the battery out count to thiurty thing and still nothing happend. i just want to know what i should do for future information because it cost over thirteen hundred dollars and has been giving me nothing but heart ache. for the record i don't know what model asus it is but it's the one promoted by the republic of gamers and has a silver keyboard layout. please help. my email is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. thank you very much.
