    Asus is only the motherboard maker. I need to know what brand the laptop is. But anyway,here's my take on it. First is it under warranty? Should be if you just bought it. Second, try hitting delete,f1, or f12 & see if you can access the bios or boot menu. If you can get into bios, then check all the hardware to see if it shows up. You should see the hard drive,hopefully,the ram & it's specs, the video(type & ram). If all is good, which I doubt, then try re-installing the operating system by using the supplied disks that came with the laptop. You can do this by going to the boot menu using ,usually f12, or in the bios options them selves under "boot menu",select boot from cdrom or dvd or if it wasn't selected,the hard drive. Save & exit,usually f10 or it will ask you if you want to save & exit. Now, if the hard drive wasn't selected by default,that's probably the problem,once you select it & save it should reboot & work fine. If not, go back into the boot menu & select the cdrom or dvd drive,make sure the install disk is in the right drive, save, exit & reboot. Follow the on screen instructions to re-install the operating system. You will need the cd key for the operating system. Btw,f8 only works for windows operating systems,so if there's nothing on the hard drive,well... you gotta buy it. Then the same steps apply,except you don't need to check everything in bios,just change the boot sequence,make sure the operating system disk is in the right drive & you're good to go. If you don't have the driver disk,you may need to use someone elses pc to access the internet to get them & burn them to disk. Installing those is a seperate question though,lol Just ask again! Good luck & peace!

This just happened to me today. My notebook is the same model. I was logging into a game and all of a sudden it blue screened. After that every time I restarted it would go to the Asus logo screen (I think that's what is referred to as the splash screen but could be wrong). No keys worked. Nothing I could do. So, I called Asus and they had me unplug the power, take out the battery and hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Now it's fine. Apparently it just needed to be reset. I hope that helps. Good luck.

Black pixels on my sreen that are speading

If they are dead pixels, and there is nothing you can do. Get it replaced. If it is a stuck pixel, then you can gently rub it or wait till is unfreezes. I would contact ASUS or vendor being that it's new.

Problem with my asus password

restart your computer and keep hitting "F8" over and over and over until a black screen comes up with a list of options of how to start windows. pick the one that says "safe mode with networking" go to control panel, then user accounts, then delete the password, then restart your computer and see if everything goes back to normal. If so, then go back to user accounts and make a new password and then restart, and see if everything works guess is that it will. Sometimes it's just weird that way...let me know what happens

Asus a7V8X- X stucks in the main screen of ASUS that's all

Does it come up with any warning messages in POST? if not try removing all unnecessary components, eg all cards except for video, use only one stick of ram in the last DIMM slot and all usb cables from the back except for keyboard and mouse(if usb). Boot it up then if it goes right through switch off and add a component then try again, use this process until it stops responding, then repost what caused it to stop. Otherwise if removing all those components didn't make it respond properly try updating your bios, on your motherboard it has the Asus EZ flash utility so you can do this straight from the bios screen, all the instructions and software you need can be found here

instruction links on the left, downloads on the right just make the appropriate selections from the drop-down menus.

hope this helps.
