08-08-2014, 02:56 AM
I disassembled my G74sx-RH1 , I've owned it for about 2+ years and decided to clean it , I cleaned my table and such for static . After taking it apart and cleaning it and putting it all back together again , It boots and i see the lights of the keyboard show up , set me to bios and I just saved and exited. Now my screen is blank. The keyboard it self works , the lights turn on , but the screen won't turn on at all . so i decided ill turn it on and leave it on to see what happens and still the screen will not turn on. If anyone has any suggestions I'm more than glad to listen and try it .

Do you have video from HDMI or VGA ports?

I remember some people reporting on other models that if a cable is not seated properly it can cause problems like this too, so if nothing else works, you might need to take it apart and slowly check everything as you put it together again.

If you can do this safely, assemble just the minimum things to get video first before connecting everything, but you want to make sure things don't accidentally move around and short things out, etc.

You may know you can always try to send it back to ASUS for out-of-warranty service too if necessary.

Good luck!

I do not have video coming from either ports , tried the hdmi port on my TV and the vga on a small monitor i use when i code .... I'm guessing my GPU is fried now . and I;m running into another problem, I turn it on and it boots but turns off 10 seconds later. it is probably the whole motherboard now. I'm either thinking of getting a new laptop or sending it to asus and see if they can replace parts and fix it ... but I'm out of factory warranty and one i paid for at the store where i purchased it.

that sucks... I would disassemble and reassemble the whole thing again, nothing to lose at this point... Seems like you might have missed something or installed something wrong if your lucky.... If not, check out the Aorus X7 v2 .... Probably my next laptop series down the line ... My G74 is 3 years old now... would be great if I got another 2 years out of it at least
