Question about ASUS A6U Notebook

3 Answers

Booting Trouble.... Hi, i went to turn on my Asus A6 Laptop today only to be met with the Asus logo as per usual.....followed by a black screen with a white cursor in the top left corner and that's as far as it gets. I've tried pressing F8 as the system boots so it'll load in safe mode but with no luck, Any of you guys got any ideas?

I also think that your hard drive could be dead but if you have important information on it that you need to pull out go to www.grc.com and get a copy of SPINRITE it might be able to recover the hard drive and data.

Also make sure that there is not a cd in the drive that it may be looking at, also remove any flash drive, or card from card readers if applicable. Then restart and see if it wil load then.

Sounds like the hard drive has crashed and needs replacing. Go into system utilities or bios at start up. See if you have a disc scan or check disc, some machines do not, this will do a hard drive test.

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

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Why is my screen blank when I turn on my computer?


Before starting your laptop up... try to remove and clean the connector surface of the memory card/s with pencil eraser,soft cloth or tissue paper. Then insert the memory card/s back properly. check the unit if it is booting up nicely.

It sounsd like your GPU may be BGA chip and would require a re-flow/re-ball if your laptop shows graphical distortion on both monitors.

However I would first try taking the laptop apart again and double check you have connected everything properly.

Take disk out. Power down. Restart. See if will start up without a disk in it. Might be confused by your disk.

Powering up but black screen


backlight on screen doesnt work

Apr 05, 2012 | ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My screen went totally black, I have taken out my battery and reloaded it, and there is still nothing displayed on the screen total black screen


Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6430776-troubleshooting_laptop_power_failures

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine. The main indicators in these cases are the sound, and the hard drive LED on the laptop case. If the laptop sounds just like it always does for a minute or two after being turned on, it means it's going ahead and booting the operating system, but the video processor or part of the motherboard circuit for video output has failed. If the laptop just sits there and beeps when you turn it on, or if you hear the fan but not the hard drive chuckling with its active LED flashing away, it means the laptop isn't getting as far as trying to boot the operating system. While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the most common and easiest to
troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like Crucial.com.
