Asus x51rl wont always switch on?

Hi

I have a new asusx51rl laptop.

when i switch the power button on, you can hear the hard disk spin and dvd drive spin (no disk inside), but there is nothing on the lcd display.

After about six attempts it will then load as expected with the display.

this happens with both battery and ac power.

is this a fault, or is there something that i can disable to get it to load up everytime?

many thanks

Resert CMOS battery location


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Powers on wont post but dvd rom


Eject any disk from the DVD device.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the "data" and/or the "power" connectors from the DVD-ROM.
Turn the computer on, and see if it starts when the DVD-ROM is not part of your system.
If it starts, then your DVD-ROM needs to be replaced.

hi,
most of the times if laptop or Desktop cpu falls then HDD is the very first part to be damaged.
You can try any third party software as partition magic or DM for formating the drive.

Computer wont boot


Try disambling the system. Clean it with a wind blower. Check BIOS battery capacity. Replace if possible. Power on the laptop. Do you hear humming sound from hard disk ? If you hear sssssssshhhhh sound from hard disk; it's OK. Replace RAM with new one. If problem still exists Than change main board. Hope that not happen. Keep informing.
