Asus K52F Since last night

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Yes, Microsoft sent some recently

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you today.

First, please HOLD down the Power button on the ASUS laptop for atleast 30 seconds, and then release the button.

Next, press the Power button one more time - does it boot up all right this time?

Please reply at the box below; thank you.

No

OK, I see that you had opted out the previous expert earlier. Let me open up your question to our other experts who will be able to assist further; you will be automatically notified by email when another expert picks this up. Thank you.

Before that, please try one more thing:

Disconnect the power cable from the laptop and remove the battery from the back as well.

Next, HOLD down the Power button for atleast 60 seconds this time.

Next, re-connect the power cable and press the Power button again - does it boot up now?

This guy is worth the fee, but the others I dealt with only wanted to charge an additional fee to remotely log in to my computer. As I stated to them, the computer in question was locked on a black screen. I wouldn't have been able to log in to the remote internet site. Bryan had the correct answer to my problem.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
