to make this as short as possible, first off I don't have access to this laptop at the moment, but its an asus gaming laptop, from a couple years ago or so, I remember the model name is very short, like 3 letters and a number or something. Red and black colored.
At the time I didn't know of this, but anyway I am wondering now if starting with one or the other RAM stick removed, or holding down the power button with laptop unplugged, etc. could solve the issue its having. I've heard these can work for when a laptop does these things. Basically, it seems to be completely dead, but if you plug it in, the computer turns on and sounds like its running normally, fans kinda loud I guess, but the screen is just black. Thats it. However, if you try to reset it like this, I believe it then starts the thing where it powers on and off repeatedly, still same black screen either way.
What do you think? can you tell from the symptoms if its definitely one of the more serious problems, like the power unit being shot, I hear the cost/labor behind that its basically done for, or still worth giving one of the simple fixes a try?
