  1. My laptop Asus f3t series
    will not show any thing when started up the on light goes on but nothing else happens
    It was working fine last night and really have never had any problems before
    any ideas how to fix this or why it may have happened?

    Please plug an external (PC) monitor, securely into the back of it
    And try turning it on again

    You will need to follow the above guide in more detail
    Remove battery\HardDrive\all externals
    Reseat Ram (try one card only)
    Possibly, open it up! (ie dimantle)

    Many manufacturers provide guides (including pictures) that you can download (by the way, I'm repeating on every post here, what's already written in the guide)

    But with all power out
    Turn the laptop over
    You should see a couple of covers (usually with one screw, holding in the cover it self)
    Remove the covers
    Reseat the Ram (they click in and out)
    Reseat the harddrive

    Did you at least manage to remove the battery?
