    Unhappy Help with G53sx not starting

    ok this weekend i spent most of my time playing the tera beta this weekend and everything was going well...
    anyways around sunday night it was going rather slow while surfing the net. things started getting slower and i started gettting worried i scanned for anything bad with my anti virus and malwarebytes, i even checked for performance issues with that windows thing and it showed up with nothing also.
    Today it froze while i tried to start skype, i waited for a bit and couldnt do anything so i held the power button down till it turned off. when i tried to turn it on the lights lit up but nothing on the screen just black.
    and it started running some automatic repair thing and that couldnt fix it (w/e the problem was)...
    well thats what happened, can anyone tell me wtf happened if something went wrong or did i do something bad?

    So what exactly happens now when you try to boot up? If it doesn't boot into Windows, are you at able to get into the BIOS? (Press F2 immediately after powering up.)

    If you are concerned that something got messed up, you may want to restore it back to a stable configuration.

    You could open up your notebook and try to take out the RAM, insert one at the time.... so if it is a dead RAM you're dealing with, then you can fix it your self without sending it in to Asus for RMA.

    Are there any Errors or Warnings in the Windows System or Application Event Logs that point to some troubleshooting direction?

    I looked for problems and it says
    Problem: video hardware error
    Files that help describe the problem:
    WD-20120320-0157.dmp
    sysdata.xml
    WERInternalMetadata.xml

    it gives me the option of viewing a copy of the files
    and warning saying if a virus or security threat cause the problem opening the files could harm your computer

    What is the a) EventID, b) Source, and c) Details of this error?

    Where were you looking to find this error? Is this from the Windows System Event Log?
