I just recently bought a used Asus Q501LA laptop. It will power on, but it wont show anything on the display.The power light, front LEDs and caps lock light up.Here is what i tried out so far.

 

removed battery and held power button down for over 2 minutes

tried multiple sticks of ram

replaced fan (the original one wasnt spinning)

replaced wifi card

removed cmos battery then reinserted it

connected to an external display via HDMI

tried fn + f8 to switch to external display while hooked up via HDMI

 

None of these things worked. Any help would be appreciated!

unplug it, pull the battery, then press & hold the power button down for 30 seconds then plug everything back in and see if it boots.

how about if you turn it on and shine a flashlight into the screen can you see any text or graphics dimly lit?

 

If you can then it's probably a bad backlight.  and you will need to replace the screen itself to fix the problem
