Asus laptop won't boot
I've got a laptop Asus X71SL and it won't boot.
When I hit the power button, the screen stays black and the fan does not spin. The first time I boot it, the HDD led is always on (it does not flash). The next times, the num lock, caps lock and HDD leds are always on. If I unplug and plug the power cord and then start the laptop, only the HDD led will be on. And if I start it again, the three leds will be on. Etc.
The only hint I have is that the fan spins when I remove the graphics card (it does not spin when the graphics card is plugged to the motherboard). What does it mean?
What can I do to boot the computer?
Thanks for your help.

Seems to me that the mobo chipset circuitry is faulty.
Have the chipset reball may help.
Try replace the small Bios battery, that may help.
Also reseat the CPU as well.
Hope this helps a reset on the mobo.

Thanks for your response.
I did everything you wrote and one of them did something.
I removed the BIOS battery and connected it again (I'm sure I've already done that, but this time, something happened).
Then, I was able to boot the laptop.
I saw the Asus screen and I was even able to access the BIOS setup.
When I was in the BIOS setup, I kind of see the screen flicker twice with a delay of about 10 seconds between the two flickering.
Then, I powered off the laptop.
However, the fan still did not spin.
I saw a couple of errors during the POST.
Here is one that I remember:
CMOS battery low
CMOS Checksum Error
I should be noted the the fan only spin when no graphics card is connected to the motherboard.
Then, I put a new BIOS battery, but it did not changed anything (still unable to boot).
After that, I tried to reproduce this without any success. I am now unable to boot the laptop.
What do you suggest?

Either replace the motherboard or the laptop.
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards!
