ASUS screen problemas

So I just got my ASUS G53S laptop via pony express today. I get off work all excited and ****. I plugged it in, open the screen and turn it on. It powers up, and the lights turn on (power button and whatever the other three buttons mean on top) and the keyboard lights up for like 2 seconds and turns back off. I can tell the computer is on cuz I can feel the air coming out of the back just no screen.

Anyone know whats going on? I called support and the foreigner on the phone said it might have gotten tossed around in the mail and my graphics card got messed up. But, I'm in Japan and **** so I don't wanna send it back if I don't have to. Any help would be good I got some RO2 to be hitting up in about a week so......

look at the user guild online. take the battery out of the unit first then try and reseat the ram and video card.most of them have places on the bottom of the laptop to get to them.

Couldn't find a user guide. However, I get in from work today and plug it in and it turns on seems like nothing was wrong with it in the first place. So it's starting up and doing all its **** and I take a shower and come back and its off again. WTF IS HAPPENING

google the model number and see if they sent the unit with the most up to date fix and drivers.see if anyone has the same issue as you and what the fix was.sounds like you have a sleep issue with the laptop or it set to shut down after a set time.
