Hi Guys my friend has a Asus K52F SX065X Note book which was working fine this morning and now won't fire up.... Normally they turn on power at the wall and then power on button and a white light comes on but not any more.....there is a green light on the power pack and a green light on the note book............ Any ideas guys???

I use to be confused but now I'm not so sure..

If it will not power on then something has died, I mean with a laptop it either turns on or not. If not then something has died, you could try removing then replacing the battery, make sure the ram is seated. Does the cooler spin up or is there no sign of life at all ? But if it is still under warranty then RMA it for repairs.

Pull out battery and put it back in. Had to do this once to my ASUS K52 at home.

Hyper AIDS... Uber 1337 Hyper AIDS. Or, more realistically, if it was working fine yesterday and not today, laptops love to have faulty power buttons, and if your PC isnt configured to wake on LAN, there isnt much to do without pulling it apart. Protip for all: Set your laptop to wake on lan (especially if you use it wirelessly) that way if the button fails, you can power it on via network cable.

Try pulling the battery out and turning it on with just the power brick plugged into it, had a laptop that wouldn't turn on, turned out the battery was faulty.

Thanks guys for looking at my post and for all the great ideas but it's fixed, I'm in Adelaide and she's in Queensland so I couldn't look at it myself but someone else said look at the Ram...

So over the phone I told her to remove the battery and the back cover and how to open the clips for the ram and it would pop up to about a 45deg angle do that for both sticks of ram and put them back in and then the battery and try it... fired up straight away and very happy now, so weather it was the battery removal or the ram removal that did it who knows and she's thrilled as it's the 1st time shes ever looked in side a PC ;)

Also the

is a top idea too...
