This could be a few things, but is most likely a defective system board. If your hard drive light (usually looks like a can) is fluttering and you hear the Windows desktop music when it launches, then you could just have a defective LCD screen or inverter. If there are no sounds or flickering lights (just a steady power light) you could have a defective board or failure in the cpu. If the computer cost less than 200.00 i would not get it fixed, I would get a used identical model replacement and swap the hard drives, because most computer shops would charge about 200 bucks to replace your system board.

My Asus X553M laptop is not booting up. Any ideas how to fix this problem?


Temitope, Hard reset. Open computer, remove battery,hold power button down (((1 minute))), reinsert battery, reassemble laptop, push/hold power button a couple seconds.
2nd fix, try to boot laptop without hdd.(hard drive). Remove the hdd, then turn on the laptop.. then it can get into the bios.. reset the bios to the default setting, turn off the laptop, and then turn it on again with hdd reinstalled. This seems to be what works in the forums with this issue found in Asus laptops. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Try turning off the laptop, unplugging it, pulling out the battery and holding power down for 30-60 seconds. After that's done, put the battery back in, plug it back in, and turn it on.
