Recently, I went to turn on my laptop to find the lights on the strip where the power button is light up,
the lights on the front of the machine light up, and the optical drive searches for a disc in the drive. But
nothing else happens at all. The monitor stays off, the hard drive/cooling fans don't kick on, the backlight keyboard etc.

So I'm fairly certain a main component is dead. Problem is, I can't identify which, and it's not blinking/beeping any sort of
code. Is there any known way to diagnose this at home? I posted on the ROG forums and one person replied stating
that the gpu was dead, giving no information to back his reasoning.

Lastly, is there any known place, other than ebay, to pick up replacement parts for these machines? I've had no luck in
finding anything myself.

Any help you can provide is VERY appreciated!

Thanks!

If none of the fans kick on, I'd think either the CPU or the GPU is dead. I'd put more money on the GPU being dead since I've only had one CPU die on me, and that was a desktop CPU at that AFTER overclocking it.

Any warranty left on it?

My G73 has a 2 year warranty, it would be easier and less costly to send it back if possible. Laptop parts are always much more expensive, not to mention you'd have to take it apart...pain in the bumm.

Yeah, disassembling just about any Asus G series laptop is a major PITA.
