Intermittent blank on asus a43sa vxo22d

The problem may be in the video cord from the screen to the motherboard, sometimes the plugin works it's way loose from the main board, if the lid is extended back that is where the intermittent symptoms tend to appear.

It is possible you have a intermittent power on/off button that is not working properly, remove main battery to see if that will help, if not! unplug power supply from laptop and remove main battery, next press and hold power for 2 minutes to get rid of any residual voltage, now put everything back together and power up.

While playing farmville my Laptop powers off

1. check your battery , it may not be getting a charge from the power supply.
2. check the connector for the power adapter it could be damaged at the main board or intermittent due to stress at the solder joints on the main-board or mother board.
3. check the power adapter cord also it could have a break at the strain relief at the connector that goes to the laptop.
4. Unit battery age can contribute to early shutoff on a laptop also.
Have your battery checked. It may have a weak cell in it and needs replacement.

Will not power up unless I move the display back and forth

Sorry I lost my password. This is a common problem with the 610 and other laptops. This repair is not for a Novice. Please get the maintance manual from dell go to dell support its free and know the disassembly procedures for tearing your laptop apart. Remove the bezel on top of your keyboard. The start button is on a small pc board. The problem is on the connector on the bottom of this board that commects to the Mother board of your computer. Remove all external, and plug in devices to your laptop. including the battery. After removing the keyboard, the top plastic cover, the start pc board, ect. you can see the connector from the start board that connects to the mother board. Look carefully and gently see if this connector is loose. The mother board connector is supported by 2 silver looking braces on each end. gently see if they are loose. I bet that one end has broken loose from the mother board. re solder the loose end to the mother board. be careful not to damage anything as I said this is not for the novice. (with the laptop in pieces put the startup pc board back in, temporairly put the battery in and push the start button. If the led's glow, this is where the problem is. While your laptop is apart check for dust ect. You may need to remove the heat sink , and a back support brace to get to the mother board connector to re solder it.
This has been a problem on 3 of my friends laptops Pushing on a button harder and harder doesn't solve the problem. It's not the button .Now you know the rest of the story.

Hopes this helps just remember where all the extra screws go when you re assemble your laptop
