Question about ASUS A8Jm Notebook
Sounds as though it is turning on but the screen is blank. I have tried reseting it but nothing happens
I'm assuming your screen shows nothing at all, even the bios or boot screen as it turns on.
If you can hook it up to an external monitor then your video adapter is working. Try using the vga output on the laptop. If it doesn't show anything use you display select feature. I'm not sure what button it is on your laptop but on mine it is Fn+F8 (look for a button that shows a laptop and/or a rectangle).
If you can see it with an external monitor, you should try to uninstall and reinstall the video adapter. After you reboot the computer hopefully it will work.
However, if it still does not work, you will probably need to reseat the monitor cable. Do this by opening the screen panel. on the back is a flat cable tat plugs in to the LCD. This is usually covered by tape. Carefully remove the tape, unplug the cable and plug the cable back in. Don't forget to replace the tape!
I have fixed two computers in the last two weeks by reseating this cable.
Hope this helps and good luck!

Don't know what to tell you, I looked this up today because I was having this issue... I let it rest for about 8 hours and then it worked just fine.. in my case I hadn't dropped it. Noone was home for the last week to do such a thing, but I could hear the windows chime so the comp was definitely booting. Sorta just resolved itself.
