My computer shut down while installing updates
Hi, my brand new Asus ultrabook was installing updates, got to 30-40% and the screen turned off. I waited for about 30-40 mins but nothing changed so i turned it off from the button. Tried holding it down several times, and turning it back on and off but nothing changed. I can hear it loads windows and i have blindly managed to type my password and i've even heard skype load so it must be working properlu besides the dark monitor. Please help out!

This sounds like a hardware problem - or you've accidently flipped the switch to put the signal to the VGA output for an external monitor.
What happens if you press Fn+F8 ( a common key combo to switch between the onboard and external monitor)?
Do you see the BIOS POST screen at all?
If not, then you have a hardware problem, and need to contact the manufacturer for assistance.
