Running windows 10, I let it update on its own. I hadn't used it for a week about 30 days ago. I came to my PC and noticed it was turned off, which after an update it does.
I powered it up. It hit the Asus splash screen, but no bios boot message following (press FN xx to enter bios or FN xx to get to boot menu). I never saw this screen. Following the splash screen, which stayed up for less than 2 seconds, usually its 5-10 seconds long, I saw a black screen. I didn't even see illumination from the screen but I heard the fan spinning.
I took it apart just to get to the CMOS, unplugged it and let it bleed off. I returned 5 minutes later, plugged it back in and powered it up. It booted!!!
3 days later, I'm right back where I started. So I took the liberty to replace the CR 2032 battery and I'm still at the same problem. Anyone have any idea what to do at this point?
An RMA is most likely not going to happen now since I've opened the unit.
