Question about ASUS F3SC-B1 Notebook
Yesterday, while I was just doing normal stuff on my Asus F3-JR laptop it just shutdown instantly. No warning or anything. At the moment, there is no response at all, not even a light to say that the power is plugged in. Although, when the main is plugged in, a very very quiet noise can be heard from it, and it slowly heats up as if it were running. It was plugged in when it turned off and I'm fairly sure it was fully charged, I haven't had battery problems yet. I've read around the net for a solution but nothing has worked so far.
I've taken it apart and cleaned it out a bit (hdd, ram, processor, fan, little round battery, wireless chip), nothing;
I've taken the battery out for a while, nothing;
I've held the power button in for +30 seconds with various hardware setting, still nothing.
I need it working, mainly because I have some important things not backed up, ie: uni assignments that are due soonish. This one has me stumped! I'd rather not send it to a pro, too expensive for me at the moment.
Thanks loads if you can help!!!
Removed the battery and unplug the power supply. And then held down
the power button for 45 seconds. Then reinstall the battery and the
power supply, push the power button and it should work. Try it a couple of times if wont start after this method.

It could be one of 2 things. Dead battery or hard drive is dead. Your biggest problem is you never backed up your info.

Sounds like you have got a serious problem.
Check the adapter with a multimeter, the output voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter, if not then you have got a faulty power adapter and needs to be replaced.
Get the RAM checked out by inserting it into another computer or take it to your friendly computer shop.
Try powering up the laptop without the main battery connected.
If these don't appear to be the problem then from your description it looks like you have got yourself a large paper weight.
If your hard disk is OK and you want to retrieve your data, then remove the hard disk and plug it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect this USB adapter into a working computer's USB port.
If this computer see the adapter and hard drive as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of the hard drive, you can copy your data to what ever storage device you want.
If you use an USB hard drive adapter case then you have got an external USB hard drive.
