Hi

I have a Asus Zenbook laptop that has stopped working after a recent windows 10 update. I took it into rectron for assessment and i have just been notified that the whole motherboard has to be replaced, and that they will begin an RMA process on the laptop.

We purchased the laptop last year August and now just after a year and a bit of usage a windows 10 update makes the laptop inoperable. I am waiting on feedback from the Rectron technician for his analysis so i can forward it on to you here.

Any advice or assistance will be greatly appreciated

Did you try to reinstall Windows? Can you get in the BIOS and does it POST - this is a critical question to ascertain if it is the motherboard.

Sounds like it could be time co-incident.

Not sure what change the update would make that bricks a motherboard - possible I suppose but I think it's likely the motherboard failed independently of the update.
