    Default WHOA!!!! Laptop shuts off out of nowhere and now wont turn on!!!!

    What was up with this? Just out of nowhere the unit shuts off, as it was only on for 45mins, so no way it can be overheating. And then I couldnt power it on, the light would flash for half a second and hear the fan start up for 1sec then stop. I finally removed the battery for 5mins and put it back in and it did it. What the [edited] is this bull[edited]? Seriously...I am not impressed, and if my laptop is [edited]ed then Im going straight to hell. Whos to say it wont do it again in 10mins?

    I am having big time problems here. BIG TIME PROBLEMS! For the last hour, this thing hasnt been turning on. Then when it does, it runs the fan, shows the centrino logo then crashes.

    And again, it boots the desktop and it freezes, mouse doesnt even move.

    I think im going to sell this piece of [edited] and buy new one tomrw. Im so fed up.

    Learning Asus,
    I concur with Johnny9ball.
    Are you having computer problems or just seeking attention. I am offended by the swearing in your posts and tired of the repeated drama.

    uhh i am not making this up. I have been trying to fix this for the last [edited] 3hrs, spending my entire night on it. Anyways im in a tough situation now. I have to send it in to the depot either way. So I could either...

    1) send it in, get it all fixed. Tommorow buy a desktop, and [edited] the laptops since i have so much trouble with them. Sell the ASUS when i get it back. Take the loss. Mind you the scratch will still be on the LCD.

    2) Send it in, buy another laptop (looking at either acer, HP or Sony), sell the ASUS when i get it back

    Either way no way im keeping it now. Even if i send it in for repairs, that will be up to 2 weeks, and then ill have to send it off the the USA for the polarization on the LCD, another 3 weeks...so that is a month just about sending this bloody thing out here and there. [edited] that, i have no time or patience for that.

    Its off to the depot tommorow, and I will buy another computer.

    i have owned many asus and all were trouble free. Just send it in and get it fixed be back in a week good as new. dont freak out its just a computer **** happens. first try taking the ram out and running one dimm at a time. if that doesnt work asus will take care of you or whoever your reseller is. no reason to be so dramatic though you and sexy beast seem to be one is the same when it comes to get overly excited with your laptops. you both have the same ones i believe as well. I have had like dozens of pcs over the years and had trouble with many it just happens with everything really dont see why you get so upset just get the warranty taken care of. Do you sell a car because it goes into the shop no you just deal with it.

    Well because what am i going to do without a computer at home for 1-2 weeks. And then what, ill have to ship it off to the states for the LCD polarization. thats a lot of trouble to me.

    If i sell it, i would get $1200 max.

    Learning_ASUS - please do not swear or curse on the forums, we don't allow that. And try to calm down, nobody's been able to help you because you are, no offense, frantic.

    I'd listen to the advice of the forum members and let them help you out if you do your part as well.

    Thanks,
