    Hello, I need some help. I hit a virus that crashed my computer. I turned the slate off by holding the power button. Now, whenever I turn my slate back on, the screen is just black. The back light is on but the screen is black. The fan and power is working properly.

    I tried hitting the windows + P, right button.
    I tried the reset button
    I tried running in the recovery cd
    I tried hooking it up to a TV via mini-HDMI

    I'm not sure if windows actually start up because i disabled the start up sound.

    I want to remove the CMOS battery but I don't know how. Do i cut the wires? or do I have to remove the whole metal frame that is attached to everything to get at the connection point? or do I open up the black plastic around the battery and disconnect the wires?

    HELP!!!

    Try reset hole first.

    Got your Win7 repair disk?

    Reinstall from ASUS recovery win 7 disk.

    Hi, you should try to boot your tablet and enter the Bios (plug an USB keybord and hit F2). If it doesn't work, your video adapter is probably dead.
