I have an ASUS X200CA Notebook PC. Today I pulled it out (haven't used it in months) and attempted to do a factory reset. At first I just turned it on, to make sure it was working before I performed the reset, and it came on just fine. Then I shut it off and turned it back on, this time while holding the F9 key. I may have been mistaken, but at the time I thought that was the correct way to do a factory reset. A menu came up and the options didn't match the instructions I was reading so I shut the thing off again. Then I tried to turn it back on, and this time it didn't come on. A few lights below the keyboard lit up and the notebook beeped, and then they went dark again. It does this every time I try to turn it on. Lights/tiny beep, then nothing. It's like it's starting to turn on and fails. The screen remains black the whole time. I've tried holding the button down for thirty seconds with the adapter plugged in, with the adapter not plugged in, taking the battery out, putting it back in, etc. Nothing works. Thanks in advance.

It isn't clear to me that you removed the battery and the power adapter together, if this is not what you did you need to do that.  Once you have removed both of these press and hold the power button for thirty seconds to dissipate the capacitors in the computer.  Then replace the battery and power adapter, then restart the computer. 

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
