Black Screen

By DonDefy ·
I?ve posted this before but someone deleted it. So here I go again ^^

I got lots of replies to my lost post but none of them were very helpful.

I have an Asus G1S and the screen does not turn on when the laptop does. The roaring sound comes on and the led display lights up with the Asus logo but the bios doesn?t load. I need to get the data of the hard drive. Any suggestions?

I cannot remove the hard drive as that will void the warranty I need the data urgently.

Things suggested before, which didn?t work: Hooking up to an external monitor, using fn keys, looking if the screen button was stuck and so on..

Any ideas guys?? The last post gave me a solution I didn?t try to try and boot form the cd but the post got deleted before I had a good chance to read it thoroughly (

Any ideas where I can find my lost post?

Extenal monitor didn't work?

by seanferd In reply to Black Screen

If you tried all the possible keys to switch monitors, then I'd say your graphics card is bad.

Is that laptop a member of a network, by any chance? Would the files you want be on a share? If so, you can pull them off with another computer in the network.

Otherwise, I'd contact Asus support and explain that you have sensitive information on the drive that cannot leave your possession, and ask them what options they can give you.

Good news!

The "you can't remove the hard drive" freaked me out a little bit.

Glad it worked out for you.
