Question about PC Laptops

Third time with LCD problem after repairs.


W5G00AE Asus notebook, purchased about 1 year, 7 months ago. In Hong Kong and unfortunately I think I only get a one year warranty because of this.

Got some helpful advice for part of this topic yesterday, but now need more advice since contacting ASUS.

Long story short. Had horizontal lines and screen skipping violently on my laptop LCD. Sent it to Asus. They replaced the screen, and the DVDRW and AC adapter. They sent it back and it started doing the same thing right away.

Resent to Asus, they supposidly replaced the motherboard, (although I question this?) Sorry for my ignorance but how would I know if they really did? It was fine for a bit, but once again is doing the same thing. Output on another monitor is fine.

I am positive this is a issue with the laptop overheating. It happens when I watch a DVD, or burn a DVD, or if it is used for an extended period of time (several hours at once) If I put something under the four corners to raise it up slightly I can prolong it from happening, but it still happens eventually.

I have contacted Asus and I am awaiting a manager to call me back. It seems they may try to put blame on me by saying that the cause could be due to extra RAM being added when I purchased the laptop.

I would like to be as prepared as possible when the manager calls back. Since I have little computer knowledge can someone please tell me if this RAM installation could have anything to do with the problem? Or is this just a way to put blame on me now and wash their hands of it?

I have since removed the RAM and it has made no difference, the screen still does the same thing. Could the RAM have damaged something?

The laptop is no longer under warranty, the previous repairs were done under warranty. My fear is they are not going to help me now. Does anyone have input into whether it should still be covered because they have never fixed the original problem?

Thanks from one frustrated notebook owner:)

Re: Third time with LCD problem after repairs.

The original repairs should be covered. Check your paperwork . If they give you a hassle, tell them you are going to report them the BBB. and your states attorney generals office.
Who knows maybe they will cover it again...The extra ram should have nothing to do with it, unless you broke something.

ASUS U50F Notebook - since purchased January 2010 the date changes by itself sometimes going ahead other times back to November 2009. Wondering if they have a fix for it yet!! Best Buy where I purchased...

Check the timezone if it is right. Timezone must base were you live. For example, if I live in Hongkong, this is my correct timezone - (UTC+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi. Check also if the the settings of your date and time is set to windows. If it set to windows then the timezone is set to US then you live in Hongkong your date and time will always adjust to the time of US even if you always adjust your date and time to Hongkong. I hope my explanation is clear to you. =)

The backlight of the screen has turned off ,i dont know why this happened . How would i turn it back on ?

The symptom you encounter is usually caused by defective inverters for the LCD panel. These are driver modules that provide power to the backlight.

The repair needed is a very common case in notebook repair shops and the spare parts required are not super expensive. Ask for a preliminary analysis (small fee) and quotation on the full repair. My estimate is you'll get a full repair for under 100 US$, including spare parts, which is way cheaper than a full replacement of the LCD panel.

In fact, I had the same problem with an Acer laptop in 2005 and had it repaired by the Acer service station in Hong Kong for 65 US$, everything included.

If you purchased it new, you should be able to get the keyboard replaced under warranty. Dell's come with a minimum 1-year warranty. Give them a call and tell them the issue with the spacebar.

Please visit and follow the steps. Contact HP and see if you model is on the affected list, as it could be eligible for a free motherboard replacement to resolve the defective video card issue. If they say no, check out for other useful information regarding this Globally known issue with nVidia and HP.

They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
