Try removing your battery and main adapter, hold power button down for 10-15 seconds (nothing should happen). Then plug in your mains adapter ONLY and press the power button. If the laptop powers up ok, re-insert the battery, the laptop should be fine for the foreseeable future.

If not I would then try re-seating your RAM/Memory, if that doesn't work and you have more than one stick remove one at a time to see if either one is causing the problem. If you have only one stick find a replacement to test your laptop with.

If you are still finding the same issues with the laptop I would then proceed to reseat all components of the laptop, including the CPU.

If the issues continue I would then remove all non-essential components one by one, each time attempting to power the laptop. At worst you will eventually end up with just the mainboard, CPU, RAM and an external monitor plugged into the mainboard, that still doesn't function correctly. I would then conclude your mainboard needs replacing.

Possible cause:
1. Battery is charged less than 6%, and the ac adapter is unplugged,
2. The laptop is shutdown due to blocked fan outlet and inlet (by dust), or the fan does not spin (damaged cooling system),
3. Motherboard is damaged.

Want to factory reset my asus g71g laptop

So I assume "blue screen?" If so, you may have a memory error. Or it could be a number of won't have to redo your computer to fix this. We just need to methodically go through the steps to correct the problems. First, are you able to go into safe mode? Press the "F8" key over and over and over during start up until you come to a black screen with options for starting the system. If you can do this, then choose "safe mode with networking" let me know if you are able to do this. Plus, what Antivirus program are you currently using?
