Hi,

I have an ASUS ROG laptop and have recently bought a VGA cable to connect it to a TV monitor. When I disconnected it today from the monitor, and went and turned it on without the monitor it does not turn on. I normally use the Extend function with Control + P. And it seems it won't go back into the normal display setting. How do I reset the display settings or something like that?

It will not go past the black screen. I got home and I hooked it up, and it didn't start up. I need a reply as soon as possible, as I need it for homework.

Hello Rabss,

It could be a loose video cable that is preventing you from receiving video signal on your laptop display. If you possess knowledge of the laptop hardware, you could open the laptop and see if the cable is ok or the backlight tube is working. If you don't, then you must bring your laptop to a technician to make the tests of the LCD cable or the LCD inverter because they might get damaged.

Best of luck.

Hi,

I got it working a while back and haven't had a second to reply to this post, I believed it is the LCD Cable however it has had the same problem for the past couple of days and is now fixed. It starts up, and has the Windows login sound, but nothing is displaying. Is there a button I can press to make it go into the primary screen as I have had it hooked up to a VGA cable and still do.

Hi again,

It should be something like Fn key with F8 or Fn+F9 but it depends on the model that you have.
From what you have written I assume that you already have tried the cable thing? How about the LCD "tube"?

Let me know what happened with the key combinations.

Hi,

I am not sure what the model is and and unsure on how to check. Also it correct I have used a VGA Cable but it doesn't seem to work. And when would I have to press the button(s) is there any certain time on startup?


I have found the model number it is: G75V-T1443H

Please reply when possible.

Hi,

I think you should press the combination of keys immediately when the PC starts, but since you can't see a thing on your display, it would be very difficult to distinguish the exact moment. If you have an option, you could try the HDMI output.
Unfortunately, I ran out of ideas and this is all I could provide as help. My suggestion is to contact directly the Asus support to see what they could tell you as a troubleshooting step.

Good luck.

Hi,

Unfortunately the laptop is dead according to a technician, thanks for the help anyway.
