I have an Asus W5F notebook computer, less than 2 yrs old, but, of course, out of warranty.

It works fine, and will continue to do so, until I move the screen toward me. Then the computer suddenly shuts down and automatically reboots.

I'm thinking it has something to do with the ribbon cable connecting the screen to the mobo. Does this sound plausible? What else could it be?

Unfortunately, I've searched the Asus website for some document that will tell me how to open the case, but can't find anything. Can some one either tell me how to open this computer, or direct me to an online service manual that will explain how?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Yes the ribbon cable can become loose for a better word from the Monitor to the motherboard ......you could try reseating it if you are up to it.......

Opening a notebook can be tricky but just be patient with it and you'll be fine. Start at the underside and remove all the screws. To remember where they go, draw yourself a simple picture and place the screws on the picture. Turn it over and start at the top where the screen is and there is a piece that runs above the keyboard that will pop off with a little force. Then you'll remove the keyboard. I know this was a very basic walkthrough but just work slow and know that it will take a while your first time.

This should be enough to see that the screen is properly plugged in and nothing is wrong with the cables.
