Ok, last night I completely shut down my laptop through Windows and
turned it off. I unplugged it from the wall just to be safe in case if
a storm kicked up. Anyways this morning I go to turn it on and I get
nothing. No lights, no anything. Everything is plugged in how it
normally is but I can't get a response from the computer. So I flipped
the computer over and took the battery out, after messing with the
battery I slid the battery back in at an angle and for a brief second
the orange light kicked on but then it goes right back off again. So I
held it back at that angle again and the light would kick on for a sec
but back off. It won't even come on when the battery is put back in the
slot how it is normally. I'm trying to figure out if its my power
supply or a battery issue. Does anyone have any ideas? I've had my
power supply plugged in all day and its ice cold, usually its extremely
hot. I dunno, but if anyone does, please let me know.

Re: Power up issue
You may have a contact issue in the battery compartment.
I don't think this will help but you can try using a pencil eraser to scrub the battery pack's contacts and, if they are accessible, the compartment's contacts too.
The situation (brief flash of LEDs) you are describing sounds like a battery pack on its last legs but it may be only that it has not been charging for a while.

turn off the computer
-unplug the computer from the wall
-hold the power button down for 30 seconds
-plug computer back in
-turn the computer back on
-if you are prompted to start windows normally or enter safe mode - select start windows normally
You could have a corruption in the script or a process that won't stop. Try holding down on the power button until the screen goes dark and all lights go out. That is a hard shut down without saving settings. After it shuts down (finally) power it back up. Hit the F8 key on your keyboard the moment your machine goes to the black screen before it can load windows. That is the safe mode. Move the highlight up to safe mode or safe mode with networking and allow it to continue to boot up. Then, when it's completed the process and windows displays that it is in safe mode, do a normal restart. That should resolve the issue.
ok it's ok Start your pc once you get to the ASUS screen tap the button to get into your bios or "Setup menu" most likely F2 once done you should get a menu goto SATA DRIVE or SATA TYPE or just SATA either (achi or IDE modes) change from (IDE to ACHI) or from (achi to IDE) ok if that does not work please feel free to reply
You need to try booting in Safe Mode with Networking and if that fails then Last known good configuration should work. Below are the steps to perform Last known good configuration howver Safe mode with networking is also an option under "windows Advanced option". Now if you succeed logging in to Safe mode with networking then try performing system restore by going to Start....All Programs....System Tools and System restore.
Follow the steps below,
Step 1: Shut down your PC completely. Step 2: Turn on the Power button. Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.) Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration". Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER. Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows.
Shut it off, pull the battery out. Unplug all devices that you might have plugged into the laptop (anything USB, cards, etc). With the battery OUT, and the power cord unplugged, hold down the power-on button for about 20-30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and/or power cord and then boot the machine into safe mode (hit "f8" white booting on windows operating systems to get into the safe mode menu). Try booting safe mode NO networking (top choice). Still locks up? Possible issues are 1) Bad or failing HD 2) Failing RAM 3) Virus or drive issues.
Booting into safe mode should allow you to run a virus scan, then clean and defrag the HD and check for resource conflicts or "flags" for issues (control panel, administrative tools, browse until you find "Event Viewer" and click each icon in the drop down field on the left and read the "errors" in red on the right).
We'll need your OS and laptop model number as well as things like wireless devices or anything custom you've done or have installed.
Try booting the pc into safe mode with networking. If it will boot to safe mode then all is not lost. If it won't boot to safe mode, try to boot with the windows disc and go to the restore screen or go to the repair option and try to repair the windows startup.
Hi, by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.
Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.
