    ASUS Laptop won't turn on after BSOD and automatic repair!


    A couple of days ago, I was on steam on my ASUS X550L Notebook when it suddenly blue screened and shut down. I waited a couple of minutes and turned it back on, and it went to the ASUS automatic repair system. After 6 hours of my laptop being stuck on the repair system, I shut it down. I waited around a minute and turned it back on and ran it through login, where it blue screened again and has not turned on since. If I go to try to turn it on, the lights in the bottom of the laptop flash for a couple of seconds, but it never turns on. I am okay with wiping the computer if I can get my files on an external hard drive, don't want to redownload them steam files. Please help.

    I would try removing the battery for 5 or 10 minutes. Then re-install the battery and try booting again. May not work, but it's worth a try.

    Laptops do retain settings when the battery is installed, even after they are powered down. On a Dell Inspiron 1545 I use to have, all of the USB ports quit working after a Nook tablet tried to charge from them. I tried everything, and thought something had burned out the USB hardware. Nothing seemed to work to get the USB ports to work. As a last resort, I removed the battery for about 15 minutes, then re-installed it and re-booted. My USB ports were working fine again. The battery power must have made the laptop retain some setting that disabled the USB ports.

    I agree and also with the battery removed hold the start button down for a Minute or so this will discharge and stored energy remaining in you MB, RAM Etc.

    I've read about several similar Asus laptop problems on other forums.

    Sometimes the instructions below worked, but it had to be tried several times:

    1. Remove the battery and power cable cable from laptop.


    2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds


    3. Replug the cable and try to start your laptop.


    4. If this doesn't work after several tries, it may be a hardware problem.

    if you are comfortable with removing ram sticks ,you could try removing all ram and replacing them just to make new connection with the ram slots ,if no difference try removing all but 1 stick and try again ,changing sticks to rule out each one as having issues

    Before you do too much, if the laptop is under warranty, send it in for service. Don't do anything to void your warranty.

    You say you were running Steam. So you were gaming. While gaming the system was probably using a lot of CPU and creating a lot of heat. A component may have overheated and failed at that point. Nothing you did wrong, but if a component is going to fail, chances are it will under a load.

    I wasn't actually playing at the time, I was just browsing it at the time. The day before steam crashed, and I was able to restart it then my laptop blue screened. That might be the cause of the problem
