The problem is that one of two antenna wires, consisting of a black and white wire, will brake with the closing and opening of the laptop screen. That is why you only get 3 bar, instead of 5 bar reception. Poor design by Asus!

No. Modern batteries are not affected by long-term charging, especially only 17 hours. And you can't really harm your laptop by leaving it plugged in either (unless it gets struck by lightning, or something similar).

I found this link, which lists 4 possible ways of tackling the problem. The last solution (router problem) can be discounted, as everyone else is working fine. The first (forget/reconnect) seems worth trying first, then the third (Windows Network Diagnostics). If all else fails, the second (reboot) is always a good last resort, but make sure it is a full ...

Had this problem and solved it myself. I opened Task Manager first and then opened the Device manager and I noticed had a yellow triangle next to Nvidia graphics card. I used the Task Manager to open Firefox.exe and downloaded updated graphics drivers. Installed and hey presto! We have a full gui again :)

There's not really an answer to this question. It automatically detected the external monitor after the Installation was done and the external monitor was plugged back up and turned on. Patience is the key!

Before the Mac, I had a Dell. The batteries stopped to work something like 1 year later (yeah, scandalous). That's because I use the laptop keeping it always in charge. However, I read that Apple prevents this possibility. When a MacBook is in charge, but the battery is fully charged, then it's like you're not charging it at all. Is it right? Can I ...

Feel free to leave it on charger and just periodically discharge it, say once a month or so. These days computers will use charger and fall back to battery power when you unplug it. Also removing it to prevent (over)heating may be a valid point, but in your case it's not possible.

I will quote StBlade's comment, since his solution worked for me: Try unplugging the laptop from the power, pull the battery out and then press the power button on the laptop a couple of times, This will discharge the mainboard and remaining power in the PSU. Plug everything back in and see what happens. Thanks again, StBlade.

You could try installing a driver for the card from the Intel Download Center. Or you could try downloading a driver from Dell; at Driver issue Centrino Advanced-N 6205 & Windows 7 Intel recommends "using the drivers specifically from Dell since those have been tested with your system configuration and may have been customized." Go to the Dell Support ...

It might be possible. Open the Device Manager and look for the Batteries category. If its there, expand it and remove all the devices. This may work until you reboot and it autoinstalls those devices again. Its a slim chance, but it could work.

First of all, more information on configuration would be a great way to start your question. Then describe where you expect performance increase, overall system speed, multitasking, choppy YouTube playback - try to be more specific. A simple Google search will give you a few things to try. However in my experience your problem is most likely old hard disk ...

When you load a default copy of Windows on existing hardware, the built in Windows drivers have a limited set of resolutions. Go to Lenovo's Support Site and get the drivers for your laptop.

The clue is "However, it's become very slow, after a few weeks of usage." What has been done to the laptop over that time? What does Task Manager show as running processes in the Details tab? The most likely cause of any slowdown is one or more process competing for CPU time. Installed apps, though "bloatware", do not slow the machine unless they are ...

I would try and run it off the battery till its completely drained, reseed the battery and see how you go. For a test I would try taking the battery out and just running off mains and see if the issue persists.

Hi I had a similar issue and I'll tell you how I fixed it. I was on steam and tried downloading a patch for a game. It wouldn't connect to the steam server. My wifi was working fine at this point. I decided to restart the computer, and see if that made a difference. If did... I couldn't see any networks on my wifi when it came back on. There were no ...

Turning on through a docking connector Some ultrabooks have a docking connector and some of them allow to turn the computer on using a button on a docking station (i.e. through the docking connector).

This wouldn't be the easiest solution, but what should work is using the task scheduler. First, check the event logs, I would imagine that something as significant as a dock connecting or disconnecting would be logged somewhere there. Once you've found the event for the docking, click on it, and you should have the option to attach a task to this event. ...

I don't think the problem because of cord, it could be a power supply itself. Try to get any new one on ebay (It less than $10) The most common problem on laptop - it is dusted cooling system. Blow with air compressor (no more than 60Psi pressure) the radiator holes. If CPU/GPU got hot and there not enough cooling, computer will automatically slow down ...

You just need to take care about battery only. Nothing wrong would happened if it isn't in use even for a longer period of time. Make first full discharge(but not lower than 2%) of battery then give a time for battery to cool down (a couple hours) then charge it 100% level and discharge then approximately to 75%. When it is done, remove battery from ...

You don't need a high spec laptop to do audio recording. As a standard I'd suggest an i5 processor and 4gb RAM minimum. If you want to manipulate the audio then you may need higher specs. The most important thing you'd need is a microphone, if you're on a budget then i'd suggest a blue yeti microphone. For software if you're on a tight budget then I'd ...

I had this problem too, i have ASUS k55VM-SX102 laptop, 2.5yrs old, i bought a new adapter half a year ago (ASUS one, but higher power than original). Symptoms were the same, cursor was jumping like if it was crazy, but calmed down when i pulled adapter plug out of computer, put pc in my lap or touched other metallic parts of it. So i started unplugging ...

Li-ion batteries tend to deteriorate faster if left 100% charged (and of course may be ruined by complete discharging). "Overcharge up to 5.2 volts leads to the synthesis of cobalt(IV) oxide... The cobalt electrode reaction is only reversible for x < 0.5, limiting the depth of discharge allowable." Also, when left fully charged, the lithium ions, ...

I've solved the issue by adding a "ScanWhenAssociated" key in the registry that disables background scans when you are connected to a network. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} Next, locate the children path that has the correct AdapterModel. In that path, create a new REG_DWORD key ...

Short summary The lags and interruptions appear to be associated with background scanning by the wireless card. Background scanning is a normal process and occurs on all cards but it should not be noticeable and definitely should not be causing packet loss. The duration and impact of said scanning varies according to operating system, driver, access ...

This might be a hairline crack on your PCB, which might have been produced by stresses on the power button. Sometimes, when the conducting copper itself has a crack, thermal expansion of the PCB will break the connection when it's warm, and make the connection when it's cold.

By my experience: You can run multiple VirtualBox guests (I don't know about VMWare) and have then working side-by-side with host sleep mode. I have a Dell Inspiron running Windows 8.1 as host with 1 Windows 7 guest and 2 Linux guests (Ubuntu and Debian). When I close the lid of my laptop all the guests still on without adding extra power consumption ...

All professional use laptops should use SSDs, especially with 250GB versions going for $160 now. The gains in performance and battery life are phenomenal. My mid-end Asus Flip Book boots cold to windows login off SATA in literally two seconds.

I put an SSD in my i7 laptop with 6GB ram and the biggest difference I notice is in startup times. It went from minutes to seconds. You'll really notice a difference after a windows or AV update. Well worth the money in my opinion.


1

I can tell you that buying an SSD will definitely not hurt performance. It will absolutely improve boot times (that is, booting will be faster). The "maybe you'll notice/maybe you won't" performance boosts will come from how many files or apps you try and load or save concurrently. The more multitasking you do, the more you'll notice. Another thing to ...

Depending on the laptop that you have, the only option you would have would be to replace a detachable CD-rom with a hard drive bay. You would probably have to remove your internal hard drive, install the SSD (make it bootable/clone your existing system HD onto it), and move the 1T HD to the external bay. Something similar to this ...

From that article, it states that it can be: coupled with an optional 16 GB SSD cache module. This is usually a M.2 form factor (mSATA) SSD, but it can't be used for anything other than caching frequently accessed files. To install that ADATA SSD, you would need to replace your current OS/boot drive. UPDATE: If you wanted to have both, then if the ...

This laptop has 2 SO-DIMM slots. One of them has a 4GB module fitted in the factory. The other is empty. The maximum RAM size, for each slot, is 8 GB. So you can add a 8 GB module for a total of 12 GB. And you can replace the current 4GB module with a 8 GB module giving you 16 GB total. Having 2 identical RAM modules allows use of them in dual-channel ...

As said before, on an lcd screen you can only choose multiples of your native resolution to avoid the blurry effect. So for your 1920*1080 screen you should lower your resolution to 960*540 which is much too low for you I guess.


5

LCD monitors will only ever look nice and crisp when set to their native resolution. In your case, 1920x1080. If things are too small to read, you're best bet is to keep the 1920x1080 resolution and adjust the screen "DPI" setting in your OS. You haven't specified what OS you're running, but assuming it's Windows: Windows Vista Windows 7 Windows 8/8.1


4

If you select a non-native resolution, the driver has to calculate every pixel value from the original image where it corresponds to a fraction of a pixel. The interpolation error of up-sampling results in the blurry impression you have noticed. The error can be reduced if you select a resolution with the same aspect ratio (width / hight) as your native ...

This is normal for some AC adapters right out of the box (old dells commonly had this problem) and sometimes it occurs only after extensive use. No harm is being done as of now. If it bothers you too much or if it starts to take to long to charge or no change at all, just replace it. You can pick these up off eBay for pretty cheap. Just make sure you look ...

Two things: 1- I've come across this issue several times in the past and in my past experiences, it's always the motherboard or graphics card. In which case if it's the graphics card, you'll have to replace the motherboard anyways because it's not removable like a standard desktop PC. To be sure though, try plugging in a VGA or DVI (or HDMI/DisplayPort) ...

Firstly, are you using a 64 bit image of Ubuntu? I am not sure if this is going to work since your PC probably has secure boot enabled, but, try burning the image again using the dd command. Sometimes (idk why) ubuntu isn't burned correctly and it doesn't support UEFI BIOS. Had the same problem once. What I did (had access to BIOS though) was disable ...
