There can be a couple problems that can cause this, here are a just a few.
Safe Mode: Try booting to Safe Mode by pressing F5 when the computer starts up. Select SAFE MODE when prompted, and then hit ENTER. If you computer starts up it may be a driver related issue. Try un-installing the last driver you installed and remove that device. Restart Windows normally and see if they fixes the problem. If it does, simply check for a new driver for your devices that you had removed.
Some Virus can also cause booting issues. If you were able to get into Safe Modem try running your trusted virus program and Quarantine or remove any found virus(s).
Hard Disk Drive (HDD): Often HDDs are the cause for not starting up. They sometimes get knocked when they are running and that is very bad sometimes. It likes putting a scratch on a CD, it may or may not work afterwards.
RAM: Try re-seating the RAM. Simply remove them and reinstall them. You can find videos on YouTube on how to do this, just look for your model and search for "K53 disassembly" (but don't follow the video further than necessary!). If no change, try installing one stick of RAM at a time. (one, then swap the other, then both again).
Boot it, and take it into a darkened room.
Do you see a very-dim image of your Windows "desktop" ?
If so, then a $20 part (the "inverter") has failed.
Pay $50 to $75 for a technician to disassemble your computer, replace the inverter, reassemble your computer, and test it.
If you attach an "external" LCD/CRT monitor to the SVGA port, does your "desktop" show-up on that screen? If so, then Windows has booted normally.
sounds like your boot record on hard drive is bad or hard drive turn on computer and hit like f10 or f12 it will tell you right after asus screen what key to hit for restore, if this doesn,t work hard drive is bad. hope this was helpful
Press F8 when you turn on the computer and from the list of options select safe mode and boot into safe mode when you are on the desktop screen go to the device manager ( you can use this path : start-run-devmgmt.msc) in the device manager go to display adaptors right click it and uninstall it.
after that restart the computer.
if this doesnot work again boot to safe mode and try to do a system restore (start-all programs-accesories-accesibility-system tools-system restore)
select a date when your system was working fine, that should fix it.
If it starts to load the operating system and then the display goes black then chances are that the dispay/video drivers are corrupt.
Boot the machine into safe mode by restarting the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key as it starts. This should bring up a sub menu with safe mode at the top. Use the cursor keys to highlight safe mode and press enter. You will see white boot information scroll up the screen, be patient and wait for it to load up. Click on your account and you will see a message about system restore. You don't want to use system restore so click on yes to work in safe mode.
Right click on My Computer/Computer and click on manage from the list. Then select Device Manager.
Look in the list for display adapters and click on the + or > next to to expand the list. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.
Restart the computer and it should load up the operating system and reinstall the drivers for the display.
Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu. When the window pops up select Device Manager. A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.
Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode. If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it. I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Dell support website.
If it still won't display in normal mode please post back.
Press F8 as the laptop boots up and then select Start in Safe Mode.
Then Click on Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore and click on a restore date before you add the SD card and follow the instructions.
This may return your computer back to where it was before your problems started.
