How To Fix ASUS ROG Strix G15 Won’t Power On

There’s nothing more frustrating than hitting that power button on your trusty ASUS ROG Strix G15, ready for some serious gaming, only to be met with…silence. Before you start imagining the worst, let’s walk through some common fixes. Most of the time, it’s a simple issue that’s easy to resolve.

How To Fix ASUS ROG Strix G15 Won't Power On

Before we dive into the techy stuff, let’s rule out the silly-but-surprisingly-common culprits:

  • Is it Really Plugged In? Double-check that power cord! Is it snugly in both the laptop and the outlet?
  • Outlet Issues: Try a different outlet, just to be sure the one you’re using isn’t faulty.
  • Battery Blues: If you’re running on battery, try plugging in. Sometimes a completely drained battery can prevent the laptop from turning on.

Power Problems

Okay, if the basics are good, let’s look at the power supply itself:

Inspect the Adapter

Look for any damage to the power cord or AC adapter. Frayed wires or loose connections are bad news.

Try a Spare

If you can, borrow a compatible ASUS adapter from a friend or try a different one you have lying around. This helps pinpoint if the issue is with your charger.

The Hard Reset

Unplug the adapter, remove the battery (if accessible), hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put things back together and try powering on.

Screen Issues

Sometimes, the laptop might actually be turning on, but the screen isn’t cooperating, can you hear fans spinning or lights coming on? Those are signs it might actually be booting up. Try connecting an external monitor. If you get a picture there, your laptop’s screen might be the culprit.

Final Words

If none of the above worked, things get a bit trickier. If you’re comfortable with tech, opening the laptop to visually check for loose connections or obviously damaged parts might reveal the problem. But do this carefully, and refer to your manual! If your ROG Strix G15 is still under warranty, contacting ASUS support is usually the best and safest bet.

Be patient and methodical! Troubleshooting takes time. Don’t panic if you’re not tech-savvy. Many repair shops can diagnose laptop issues quickly.
