I recently replaced my gpu in my g50 because it overheated but it would till turn on. Now with the new GPU in place for about 2 months I'm facing the same issue, where it won't power on and the leds only light up for a second.
I'll put my old GPU back in to confirm your diagnosis. Any luck on fixing it?

I have the same issue with my G50 where it won't power on and the LEDs will only light up for a second. THis has been happening for a few days now. I replaced my GPU about 2 months ago due to other issues. Back then the laptop would always power on, but the screen would stay black about 60% of the time. I'll put the old GPU back in and see if the problem if still the same. If it powers on it's definitely the GPU. Any luck with fixing it yet?

Posting an hour later with the same thing generally doesn't do much good.

When components start to die on you, it's time to move on and update. They're too costly to replace usually and the effort would better be used to simply fine a suitable replacement machine.

Thanks for the notice! Actually posting it twice was a mistake and not my purpose. I just accidentally navigated away from the page when trying to post and I thought it had not posted it, because I could not find it.
Sorry for that!

I think that figuring out what's wrong with your machine is worth it though, cause only then you can make a rational decision about fixing it or moving on.

Finally found the time to put my old gpu back in. Powering back on! So it's the graphics card for sure. Really sucks for me cause I just replaced it, but I hope it helps.

I wonder if FloatingDinosaur's issue ever got resolved.

I'm facing exactly the same problem right now. Grabbed my laptop, took it to the Asus service center, they said my GPU was faulty. I switched the original GeForce 9800M GS with GeForce GTX 260M. No progress, except the fan now starts without a delay on startup.
