Call it it ASAP so you get it attended to under warranty.
I've had an Asus z71v laptop for about 2 months and things were working fine until just a few weeks ago when I began experiencing a weird start-up problem:
When I press the power button, the power light and the harddrive light come on, but then nothing happens for a few minutes (or sometimes not at all). Usually, I have to press and hold the power button (turning the laptop off) and try again several times before it does start. When it finally does start, the resolution is 800 x 600 and I get all these popups saying "new hardware detected." So, I have to choose "restart" and finally this causes my laptop to start up correctly with the normal resolution. As far as I can tell, the laptop appears to function normally once I successfully start it.
Here's what's weird: the problem only seems to occur if the laptop has been off for a few HOURS. If I'm using the laptop, then turn it off and try to start it a few MINUTES later, it seems to start up normally.
Here are my laptop's specs: Pentium M 2.0 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 60 GB 7200rpm HD, Nvidia GO 6600 128Mb, DVD/CDRW Drive, Windows XP Home.
Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this and any thoughts how to fix it? Thanks, in advance for any help provided.
