My ASUS X44H laptop just turned off suddenly and now will not turn back on. No lights, even with charging cord plugged in, no response to pressing the power button what so ever. Any suggestions?

hi

Did it turn off while you were working with it?

Try this:

1. Remove battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds

3. Replug and start.

If the above fails and that it turned off on you while you were using it and that you can hear the fan run, then you have a major motherboard failure.

Good luck

Thanks for the help, tried your solution and it did not work. Yes, it quit while I was using it. I cannot hear the fan or any other sounds from the laptop, it does not show any signs of power or activity. Are there any other DIY solutions I can try?

Gee, I'm sorry but it seems that you are out of power. looks like your motherboard failed; only a hands-on technician can see to it.
