Hey guys, was wondering if you could lend me a hand here.
I purchased a G53sw notebook for gaming and I was quite happy with the product until a fault started appearing. I took my notebook for a trip abroad and after shutting it down, upon restarting it, the screen went completely black, I tried connecting another monitor through the VGA and HDMI ports to no avail.
The laptop booted up and I knew it was working as I could see it in my network and the windows startup sounds were there as well.
I RMA'd it and after a couple of weeks they returned the notebook stating that they didn't find any faults. Sure enough, I boot up my laptop and everything's working fine.
A week later on another trip, same thing happens, screen dies for a couple of days and won't turn on no matter what I do, after 4 or 5 days of this it comes back to life and nothing's wrong. Rinse and repeat.
I'm tired of the unreliability, I don't know whether I can RMA again as the fault might be gone by the time it gets to the support people.
Does anyone have the same problem or have a possible fix? I think the video card is to blame here.
