Had the same problem, took it in (tried all the solutions above) to get it looked at. I was told the mother board was defective and the machine was useless and should buy a new one. I have only had it for a two and a half years. So, of course it is off warranty. Will never buy an ASUS again.

    Oh yes I should mention, ASUS doesn't make that mother board anymore.

You could leave it off for a few hours, but there is a much faster solution that does pretty much the same thing. Turn your computer off, unplug ur AC and battery. Then press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds. This will drain all of the power remaining in ur computer. Then plug ur ac adapter back in and it should be fine.

I sent mine in (still under warranty) the report read out that the RAM was defective and replaced. Mine was only two years old when it happened.

I guess this is a bit late and hopefully you have solved your problem by now, but I just had the same problem with my G1S and the following solution worked for me:

Turn off your laptop, take out the batery and remove the AC cable. Leave the laptop just like that for a few hours. I left mine for 5, but it may work with less. This should clear out your CMOS and take it out of the stuck stand-by mode, since that seems to be the problem. Afterwards just plug in the AC cable and turn it on :)

Hope this helps,

Try to do this:
1. Open and close laptop.
2. Push the PWR button at the front. This starts windows and launches media center. Now it should be back to normal.

Note that the problem will keep reappearing.

Hi I am from the Philippines. I have a ASUS G1S-X1. While I was working my screen went black. I suspected of a defect on the video card. I tried to to boot my laptop, I can here the sound of booting but on...

I've seen this problem a few times with laptops my family/co-workers have. If it's like their problem, you should be able to plug in an external monitor and see on the screen. If that works, it's either your LCD screen or your LCD backlight inverter...One of the ways to tell whether it's one or the other is try to shine a bright light directly at the screen. If you can see anything on the screen, it means it's the backlight inverter. If it's still completely black, it's your lcd screen. Both can be replaced fairly easily, just be sure to look really well, because if you purchase the (more expensive) LCD screen, replace it, and still have the problem, you'll need to do the backlight inverter anyway. You can typically find instructions for replacing them online somewhere.

When plugging in the external monitor, wait for a while to see if it will boot to your desktop, then if there's nothing on the screen look at your keyboard. There should be a button on there to swap projection modes (usually have to hit fn+f5). Try hitting that a few times just to be sure. If you still can't see anything on the monitor, it doesn't mean it's not necessarily a software issue. Download/burn a live CD (any linux version will work) and try booting from that to rule out any possible software issues.

I forgot my ASUS windows 7 computer password. And when I put the my SanDisk in the computer and hit password reset it says I can't reset because it don't have a reset thing in it. What do I do?

Login any available computer which can allow you download.
Insert a blank CD . Find out Windows Password Key and download it, burn the iso image file to the cd. When finish, insert the disk to your computer, restart your computer, set the
bios so that the computer boot from CD. Then you can clear
your account password without knowing the current password.

Password fogotten

If you are using windows you can press ctrl + alt + delete
twice at the login screen and it will give a login screen that looks a little different. Type in the username box administrator
and leave the password blank and hit ok/login.
This should get you to the point when you can then change your password, if you get in and change change your password post back and I will gladly assist you with doing that.

Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

Blank/Black Screen Asus PC 4G

When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.
