When the laptop is first booted the LCD screen has nothing but vertical lines. The reason i say that is because in the past when i was new to computers i incorrectly flashed a bios on of all things another ASUS laptop and found to my peril that i had screwed the computer completely. I heat the mainboard with the hot air station at the upper right corner both sides, of course and it works! Cant access you thru skype. There is no video on the screen.
