Default Help with my ASUS A8JS Laptop

Nov 1st when I turned my laptop on it would do fine until the Asus logo would appear then my screen would go black and I'd get beep beep beep. I tried it again last night and it doesn't turn on at all now.

Any ideas what I should try

3 beeps for an asus board / laptop generally means bad video card. Since yours is dedicated you cannot reseat it which is generally what you would do. Is it still under warranty? It has the famous nvidia go 7700 so your warranty may have been extended. Check with the company you purchases the computer from or contact asus directly.

I do not accept support questions via PM
