Laptop turns on then shuts off on asus logo


I have a problem with my asus laptop X540S. It keeps turning on and off when asus logo pops out, but only when I put the charger in. If the charger is unplugged the laptop wont start at all. I did everything (remove the batterry and hold down the start button for 30s, then 1min. and 2.min, press f keys for boot....)nothing works. I finaly disconnect a ribbon cable from keyboard and I can get into bios, but I can't do antything. When I put the cable back in into socket, the computer shuts down and keeps turning on and off. Please I need your help, couse I'm running out of ideas.

Best regards,

Try the following...

1. Power off the laptop.
2. Power on the laptop.
3. As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
4. Repeat this process a few times until you see the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen.
5. Now you want to let the laptop boot to the "Automatic Repair" screen.
6. Click "Advanced Options" and then select "Troubleshoot".
7. Here you want to select "Refresh your PC", if you do not wish to erase data, or "Reset your PC" to erase all data and restore your system.
8. From here just follow the screen instructions until the recovery is completed.

NOTE: You will need to get into the "Advanced Options" in order to get the "Refresh Option". This choice will keep your data, but any programs installed will be lost.

Do not do a "Reset" as that will wipe all data you have on the laptop.

Another version of this is the following...

1. Power off the laptop.
2. Power on the laptop.
3. When screen turns black, hit F10 and ALT repeatedly until the computer shuts off.
4. You shouTo fix the computer you should choose the second option listed.
5. When the next screen loads, choose the option "Reset Device".
6. Now choose which ever type of reset you wish.
7. Your computer should now restore itself to "Factory Settings".

NOTE: If you get a message saying "Error Resetting Device", then you should have the computer looked at by the manufacturer (if still under warranty) or by a tech.
