Asus laptop wont turn on (no display and sound). I was just playing then suddenly it hanged. Then I shut it down by holding the power button and when it was off, I tried to turn it on again but it didn't. No display and no sound from the hard drive. No hard drive led even, only power and battery led. I tried taking out the ram (I have 4+4gb, took out the extra 4) but it still did not work. The battery is not removable. Please help me. My laptop is an Asus x556uqk
this is your own risk if it voids warranty. Be careful when removing back panel and before getting battery out not to touch anything with metal cause motherboard has power in it when battery is in place
Hey Faggeti it did turn on this morning but it hanged again and about half the screen turned blue and the rest was black. Tried it two times and same result. Then I inserted a windows 8 installer and it prepared for automatic repair, then it displayed nothing (it still is turned on, just no characters or text whatsoever)
If bsod or whatever black screen happens when you load into Windows or start startup repair / go safe mode = DRIVER ISSUE MIGHT BE
If you sometimes cant see ASUS screen when you bootup and cant get to bios/ crashes in bios = HARDWARE ISSUE
you might be using HD intel Graphics if your main gpu failed or bad drivers. Go device manager and upload picture what Graphics you have there and is it disabled ? download gpu z and send picture from it
yes its better to use normal uninstall can leave leftover files which interfere
download from here : https/www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-Vivobook-X556UQ/HelpDesk_Download/
Select your os and right system. Go VGA, SHOW ALL and select NVIDIA driver Graphics driver
download unzip and leave to desktop
Boot into safe mode and run DDU (select NVIDIA and run recommended clean and restart, ít will boot when done) go normal Windows and install your new drivers u just downloaded
Also whjen installing new drivers select custom (advanced) and click x to clean install. Then install
So i just uninstalled it but when i try to install the drivers, it says it couldnt find compatible graphics hardware. In bios, the 940mx is still there but for some reason the driver still cant find it.
If even original drivers wont work from manufactor site with DDU then its probably solder under 940mx graphics chip or whole chip defective. You would need to disassembly and try to reflow it, that would make it work for a while but it will eventually fail anyway. You can still use intel HD graphics atleast.
Another option is to add external gpu, this might not work depending on your model but mostly yes.
Anyway if you want to invest more to this laptop like egpu, you need to disasssembly and clean all dust and change thermal paste for something like gc gelid extreme for cpu and gpu. You dont want motherboard destroyed by heat
