Asus Laptop stopped powering on
Last week my computer started taking a lonnnng time to start booting – power light on, harddisk light blinking, black screen. Sometimes it would take 30 minutes to an hour for it to finally show something on the screen, ultimately the asus logo would come up and boot. Now it won’t boot at all. Same symptoms – power light on, charging light functions normal (orange when charging, green when full), blinking harddisk light (once every 3 seconds or so), CAPSlock light is always on for some reason. I tried reseating the RAM. Nothing. Connecting to an external monitor, nothing, so that rules out a bad display or display connection.
I am thinking it could be GPU. Maybe I need to reflow the chips? I just don’t have the experience, so I don’t want to try that. Maybe the motherboard is going bad?
It sucks that this is 2.5 years old and the warranty was only 2 years. Now its broken…
Is this a good question?
