Hey, I've had my laptop for some 12months now. When I booted it today I had some BIOS thing pop up and a quick read said something about erasing(I think) data, don't know what it was so I hit the power button. When I tried booting it again absolutely nothing happens.
When I boot it I can see the lights flash for HDD and so on but the screen never turns on. I can't hear any beep or see the BIOS pop up, I don't think it's loading up Windows(7-64, Ult) either. I have no idea what this is as I've never encountered it before. (I'm used to using desktops and know how to fix the most common problems and so on, only laptops doesn't really allow you to open it up as easy and look around).
Does anyone have any ideas or might help me (I hope you know Asus laptops too, I didn't see it in forum description :S)
I've tried removing battery, and empty static electicity. I've also tried reseating the RAM as well as booting without a HDD. However it makes no difference.
I really doubt it's a hardware problem as it worked fine the minute before I was stupid enough to shut it down while the BIOS was doing something.
Like I said the lights show up and so on, I tried the DVD Drive and it works too. It's only the screen never turns on so nothing really happens.
So does anyone in here have any idea to what it could be or how I could fix it?
Note: I read the guide about how to fix black screen, I didn't go past the reseat CPU part as I really doubt it's a hardware problem. Plus it being very hard to open up.
