Question about ASUS M51 Series M51TA-X2 NoteBook AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM-82(2.20GHz) 15.4' Wide XGA+ 4GB Memory 250G

2 Answers

Hi i have the asus m51ta-x2 laptop, when i try to turn it on it, the on light flips on and you can hear the hardrive or dvd drive flip on for a min but nothing else, i tried to plug it into a external monitor, replacing the hardrive, replacing the ram, and replacing the ram, nothing helped. i am sure it's the motherboard but i just wanted to check.

    thanks for the reply, i have been fixing computers for a bit here and there. i wasn't sure if it would be the video card, if the video card is burnt out wouldn't there still be some response from the computer, a flicker on the screen or something, also the little yellow light the indicates the computer is doing something never pops on. also if you still think it could be the video card isn't it integrated with the motherboard or is there a way to remove it and replace it. thanks for the help so far.

Hi, I've had a similar problem with this notebook. I've managed to bring it back to life by resetting it's BIOS. To do that you'll need to completely disassemble it and remove the CMOS battery from it for about a minute or so and then put it back. CMOS battery is located at the bottom of the motherboard, below the touchpad.

    hey thanks for the comment, i have been repairing computers for a while, but i am still learning, i haven't had to replace a video hard yet so im to sure what too look for, but i thought that it might still do something, the little yellow light that indicates it's doing something doesn't event turn on, i also replaced the cpu.

    if you still think it's the video card this is a laptop so is the video card integrated or is there a way to remove it.

Where dvd slot?


It should be located on the left or right side of your laptop.
If it is not present on those locations it is possible
that your laptop does not have a dvd drive.
You can of course still enjoy dvd's by
buying an external dvd player if you need this.

I just bought an asus tranformer book flip tp 500L and can not find the place of the dvd rom?? can anyone help please ???


You could connect the two devices by a network cable (Cat 6 RJ45) and use file sharing, but I prefer to use a USB-to-USB transfer cable, like the one attached. It is USB 3.0 compatible but is still very fast at USB 2.0 speeds.

In most cases the screw is on the bottom, flip laptop over, there should be one or two screws located in that square, remove them, "sometimes a button release" open tray door and pull out until driver slides right out.

AMD Puma-based Asus M51Ta stalls at power up, screen is blank.


Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios?
If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first.
Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.

If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.

When I turn my V6000 on, I have power lights and the fan starts for 5 secs then shuts off. Nothing appears on the screen!


Sorry to hear about your V6000 problems.
If this problem has just started and all was OK before this happened.!
1. Remove all media from drives.
2. Remove battery and A/C power input.
3. Flip unit over and remove the memory.
4. Disconnect the CMOS battery.
5. Remove the Hard Drive.
6. Flip unit over and Press the Start Button for 30 seconds.
7. Flip unit over again and re-install the Hard Drive, Memory and last, the CMOS battery.
Note ...
8. Reconnect the unit to the A/C input supply voltage.
Leave the battery out for NOW !.
Flip unit and try to start with the Touch Pad Led's. This should bring up Quick Play.
If your unit starts and you here several beeps,
Don’t worry, !! You should be able to access the BIOS screen. You can reset your date and time.
If you are still not able to start unit, drop me a email and I will try some other ideas.
Hope this works for you. !!
Try it, It may work !!
