Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp

My does asus model k010 touchscreen not work when i touch something on screen


Hold VOL UP and then press POWER for about 3 seconds.

If connected to a computer it should make a noise that it has a new device connected. The TF screen will turn on but it will be black

That should get it to do something then just press hold power to turn off then press power to turn back on.

These features are normally turned on in the Bios. The bios is normally accessed by clicking the del key on the laptop at boot up. Once in the bios you should get a different screen normally black background with blue writing. Please read the options carefully on the screen as it clearly explains how to turn on and off different options.
you should have an option to turn off key click noises and also to turn the fan from high performance to compatibility mode to reduce noise,

Screen seems to be not working properly


try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.
