Asus EEE Seashell screen going blank.

by coolguy22468 / July 20, 2013 6:23 AM PDT

My sister has an Asus EEE Seashell and after it runs for a short period of time the screen on it just goes blank.

Does anyone know what the issue with it might be?

I have tried removing the RAM and replacing it again which makes it last longer before it fades to black. I have also tried using remote access to see if I can find the issue when it does that but it disconnects when that happens.

Cheers though to anyone who can help.

Did you use the usual canned air very few months over the years?

And if you ask what is that or how to use it, it's time to try it.

Cheers I will try that.

I noticed the CPU temp is 77'c even though the usage is only 33% which is worrying.

That's pretty hot. Please get out the canned air and if you are into repair, replace the heat sink compound.
