Question about ASUS F3SV-B2 Notebook

2 Answers

My asus F3SV-B2 laptop worked for me for 3 years but recently the display background colour turned pinkish. it was discovered that the cause is the Nvidia GPU 8600MGS which seems not well welded to the motherboard so after heating it with a heat dryer it can work for about a month and then the problem would start again. Is it possible to solve the problem permanently?

    thanks for the quick reply. but the problem is definitely not about the lcd screen but the video card. what i meant by pinkish display is actually vertical pink lines on the white part of the display content. and the problem disappears after heating the video card with a hot dryer but only for a month or so and then the problem occurs again.

    i consulted some professional who told me that it's not possible to re-solder the bga type video card so the only solution is to change the whole motherboard. is that so?

Yes, it is solvable, for that it is need to resold (reball) the chip- to pull it up, clean from the old solder the chip and the motherboard, to make new pins and to solder it back. There might be a cold solder somewhere under the chip, that causes that problem.

    IT IS POSSIBLE to resold the video chip, I do this job almost every day. You should search in your area who does repair Play Stations, there the most common problem is the same- the un-soldered GPU- graphycs chip, that is the same. Maybe they will help you. Changing the mainboard is the very last solution.
    P.S. Sorry for late response, I just received the email about your question.

If the screen has a pinkish streak across the screen then the fault may be a faulty CCFL lamp that is about to fail.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow myinstructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

My screen has a pinkish overtone, when I restart everything looks normal for a few seconds after I log into my name and then it goes red again. Everything works fine, but it pretty much hurts my eyes.

That means the backlight on your LCD display is on its last legs. I say that but I have had laptops with the pink screen that lasted like that for over a year. Or, it might go dark tomorrow. It is not the inverter, which is an easy fix. Only a replacement of the backlight (a flourescent tube built into the display panel) will fix it. So Replace the backlight at repair shops...THANK YOU

I recently uninstalled ms office 2007 program on my asus EeeBox B202 desktop pc, after rebooting the monitor displays orange color with graphical lines and mouse cursor, the computer actually stopped...

This is unrelated to the Office uninstall. Failing backlight can cause pinkish or orange coloration. I would suggest you take it to a professional to price replacing the backlight.

If you want to confirm that the computer still works and it's just the backlight, do the following:

Boot it and listen. Does it all sound normal?
Boot it in the moonlight and look at it from all angles (can you barely see the image on the screen? If so it's definitely your backlight.)
Connect it to an external monitor (google it).

How do I remove the disk drive out of my ASUS f3SV notebook?

Depending on the model, and I see you specified which one, you may or may not be able to. However, most all computers can be unscrewed and opened at the bottom, where you can then unscrew the versatile disc drive and remove it for replacement. Your best bet is to take it to specialists for that company to fix it. However, if you wish to save the trip and money, I'd give opening it up yourself a try after you make sure it's turned off.

Hi i cant seem to locate my built in camera i cant turn it on for video talk it says there is no camera connected what do i do

Here is the support page for your laptop. Unfortunately, there are 10 different camera drivers. You did not state Windows you are using and entering that info into the page may narrow things down a bit. In my Asus there are 3 programs for you camera. The virtual camera seems to have to be turned on in order for it to work in the other programs. Hope this helps.

Icons green tint to them

I'm not sure but I think this model uses an integrated graphics card which would then involve replacing the entire motherboard.

It may be that the screen backlight is getting old - they often age by showing a tint, usually it is pink but I have seen them go greenish.

Try an external monitor connected to the laptop via the VGA d connector. If the picture on the external monitor has a good colour balance then it is probably not a faulty graphics chip, and likely to be the laptop screen.
