ASUS A52J dos not turn on

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello!
My new ASUS A52J does not turn on when i press the power-button. I do have a yellow light that indicates that the charer is charging the battery. Also when i press the power button the battery light goes away for 1-2 sec and then comes back on again. I've tried the 15-30 sec trick when i unplug the battery and charger, without succed.

Thank you for all answers!

Sounds like something is shorting out when you press the power button, Is there any buzzing noise coming from the laptop

No, i managed to get to the ASUS logo screen, then it turned off. And there is no sound what so ever from what i can hear.

Hmmmmm A tough one, Can you reset the cmos? try removing the cmos battery and leaving it out for 5 mins then trying again

Should give it a try, though im afraid to break anything. This just happend without any notifications. Suddenly it would not turn on at all ... Strange.

It could just be the board is giving up the ghost, Laptops are random like that, was it acting up strange before, High temps? glitches? slowness?

Laptops are simple to take apart just take your time with them and dont lose a screw for god sake

Nothing, everything worked perfectly before this, not even a single blue-screen since I bought it. Hate the "Warranty void if..." stickers btw .. tongue.gif

It's out of warranty, yes. Though it's a little scary to break these stickers .. It's just scary. Will update when I have got the time to open it up fully. Thabk you so far!

Well, did not seem to work. Strange thing that when i press the "Power On/ Off" button, the light goes on and then goes away just half a second after? Look's like it SHOULD work, though it does not rolleyes.gif
