Laptop problem Asus Vivobook Q301LA

Q: Laptop problem Asus Vivobook Q301LA

Until recently my laptop, an Asus Vivobook with an i5-processor, touchscreen and a 500 gig harddisk, worked just fine, no problems whatsoever. But when I started playing GuildWars 2 it developped a nervous 'tick'. Let me explain: of course the battery of my laptop doesn't last forever, so sometimes I have to plug it in while playing GW, and as soon as I do that the screen starts to black out randomly, as bad as sometimes every 3 seconds. It turns itself on again, and there's no loss of performance (at least not a noticeable one). It gets worse: when I stop playing it continues to flicker on and off. I know that it's not a heat problem, at least I don't think so. SpeedFan detects temperatures up to 67 degrees while playing, but that's it, my laptop should be able to handle that.

Can anyone help me?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

...ok, here's an addendum to my post: at the moment the screen goes blank every time I plug in the charger, and the core temperature is around 51, 52 degrees, so in my humble opinion it's definitely not a heat issue.

Try installing the updates in small batches, say 5 or 6 at a time, then if you do get a failure you should be able to go back to a previous restore point instead of having to refresh.

I have an Asus VivoBook S400CA that I was thinking about selling. I got it for Christmas. It has never had a virus, and it's in perfect condition. Everything works great. I'm going to sell it with a stylus I got for it, along with the charger. I'm selling it because it's not the laptop for me.

Does anyone know how much I could get for it?

I might also include a detached CD-drive I got from Best Buy... I think it was like, 60 bucks. I've used it once or twice, and I won't be needing it when I get rid of this laptop.

A:Appraisal - Asus VivoBook S400CA

Depends highly on what specs it has. CNET says the price range is $695 - $1142.

Considering this laptop is used, has 6mths warranty left, and isn't factory defaulted (I highly recommend doing this, we can help), I'd be looking at $550 - $950 max as a private sale.

This actually isn't directly Windows 10 related since it also affected Windows 8 and 8.1.

A couple years back I swapped out the mechanical drive in this notebook for an SSD. Device Manager shows a lot of unknown devices that have no drivers, even after I installed as many of the drivers as I could find on ASUS's website. Does anyone know if there is a bundled collection of drivers somewhere for this model so I have everything originally bundled with this system?

A:ASUS VivoBook X202E Drivers

Have the same system with all the drivers, the total size is about 4 gig. Will pack them up and put them on OneDrive for you to get. Will let you know when they are there. Send me your email address for the invite.

Seen as my Windows 8.1 installation may be completely useless, I am going to need help booting up from BIOS. I have been putting Windows 7 (32-bit) on my USB drive and when I boot it with my laptop it shows up and says "Reboot and select proper device or insert boot media and press key". I really need help with this as like I said in my other threads, I have some important exams coming up and I need to do some revision - plus this is my only laptop!

Just bought a new laptop, ASUS VivoBook S551LB. The guy told me that everything is fixed, battery non-removable, graphics card can't be changed i.e upgraded, the same goes to RAM. Everything on the shop is fixed so I decided to buy this one since it is affordable and can sustain enough performance to be used in gaming.

My question is how do I take care of the battery ? At the moment I'm plugging in the whole day but it says 99% available (plugged in, not charging) so I think it is kinda safe to be plugged in rather than keep charging until 100% and discharging it and use it and charging again, repeating the sequence.

What do you think? Can it be harmful ?

A:ASUS VivoBook Non-removable battery question

safe yes ,but,what I think is all battery's of this type are meant to be charged and discharged, for loner life of the battery

I have ASUS vivobook s550cb with windows 8 in it (OEM). It has 1 TB HDD+24GB SSD. Previously, before I reset all drives in this laptop with the OEM OS, the SSD seems to be fully allocated. After reset, the SSD is offline and unallocated. Though, I have made it online in GPT disk, it is still unallocated. How can I utilize the SSD back to its previous condition? I have read all instructions in several forums and I can't seem t find solutions.
FYI, I have not installed anything yet in this laptop after reset.
Here is the disk management status:

Hi there I just got my new Asus Vivobook s ca running Win a few weeks ago It really runs great although I managed to find one problem Since this is a laptop without a detachable screen I didn't really find any good reason for having the touch keyboard toolbar in my task bar since I was pretty sure I'd never need it So I disabled the keyboard which worked out fine but the toolbar was still there I then went on to try to remove it by using one of EightForum's reg files for that purpose This did as described remove the toolbar but apparantly it stopped the mouse pad driver as well even though the mouse pad itself basically works no gestures or scrolling though As you can see here There's no driver running And pad work Asus driver Vivobook Mouse doesn't - in the ASUS hub it's also impossible to turn it on It just keeps saying it's off So I decided to use another reg file that I found with the initial one that should basically just rollback the effect that the other one had but to no avail It just made the toolbar come back So I don't really know where to go from here Any suggestions Also if there is anyone who knows what to do about that toolbar please do tell Thanks in advance

You mention, "hard disk/failure," but does that mean you've actually had a warning of a failure with the hard disk? I'm asking because if that's the case, then it's pretty obvious what's probably happened: you'll have probably had a hard disk failure. In this unfortunately event, backup your files and take the laptop back to the shop from whence it came, so they can replace the HDD free of charge. (assuming it's within the ream of possibility) If this is a no-go, you'll have to brave it yourself, or get someone else to do it.


In the event that you can't do all that, and it is the HDD, then it's maybe possible to "workaround" this issue (not recommended due to possible, nigh-on-likely data loss) by flagging the bad sectors on the disk, but Scandisk should have done that really, unless you didn't do a thorough check; the one that takes an eternity.

Check the S.M.A.R.T status too, which you can do by downloading and running this tool: HDD Health failure prediction for hard drives and ssd drives (scan before running)

Good luck.

Guys, i have a weird problem with my laptop. I was running my laptop on windows 8.. two days ago, i decided to upgrade to windows 10. So, i formatted hard disk and installed windows 10 from usb drive, everything went well! Then i installed all updates, drivers. But i met this problem.

PROBLEM: Sometimes, when i want to turn off computer, as everybody, i click on "Shut Down" button in start menu. Blue screen appears, and it says "shutting down"..then screen goes black, so it seems that it's already turned off but here it the thing! power light indicator below keyboard won't turn off, it means that computer is still running. The only way i can turn my computer off is to hit my finger on power button for several seconds. Any ideas???

I don't think it's cause of video card's missing driver, because when i enter to bios, the same shit happenes. wtf?

when I bought it, I installed win7 ultimate x64 and installed drivers from CD and it was working great.
recently I deleted windows and installed the win7 from the same DVD again and installed drivers from the same CD.
but now WiFi driver doesn't work. What should I do?!

A:Asus laptop WiFi Driver problem

Is it turned on? Fn + F2 I believe turns it on and off. Does the wifi card show up correctly in device mnager, with no yellow ! after it? Have you tried the driver available for that model on the ASUS web site?

I'm having a super annoying problem with my gaming notebook. when i go into almost any game and have it set to full 1900 by 1200 with high detail and stuff every couple seconds my screen goes white with some lines in it for like half a second, almost like the LCD's FFC cables were half connected. It makes it virtually impossible to play a game. I have a full replacement warrenty with Memory express. But i just wanted to see if maybe it was a driver issue or not. I used the original restore discs when i installed vista last. The video card is a ati Radeon HD 2600. This is really annoying as i bought it for a gaming laptop and i can't even game cause i get white screens all the time.

Asus g2k-a1
2.3ghz duo core amd
2gb ram
Ati radeon HD 2600 vid card
17" 1900 by 1200 LCD

Thanks any help would be appreciated!

Hi I have a asus x52f laptop the volume is at 100 per sent and with the correct drivers installed but the sound is still low can anyone help with this problem.

A:asus x52f laptop sound problem.

Has it always been like that? Looking around it seems the volume level might be a problem with that model. Might be worth some external amplified speakers - you can get some small units these days that are quite good. Even the ones on a phone dock can be way ahead of those on a laptop and they have an inbuilt amplifier.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hello all,

Just purchased a ASUS K55 model laptop with Windows 7 64 bit. Whenever I start the machine, I get a message that tells me I have to install the ATK0100 driver.

I googled it and found out that its a touchpad driver, and I've found it on the ASUS Downloads section for my model. The problem is I download it from the first server listed, and I download a folder, unzip it, and then get stuck. I've run the setup icon, and ASUS installs something and tells me to restart. I do, and then get the same ATK0100 alert. Can anyone assist me?


A:[SOLVED] New ASUS laptop - ATK0100 driver problem


What is the complete model number?

Go to the ASUS Support site for your model and look under Utilities.

There should be an ATKACPI driver listed. You can download and install this.

Instead of using the Download Manager (DLM) jusat choose the Global file and download and run it.

Try connecting the laptop to the TV again, using the same cable you use for the monitor, and see if the lines show up on the TV or not. If they do the laptop is the problem, if the don't then the new monitor is faulty.

It sounds like the recovery partition is corrupted. It could be a failing hard drive to. You may be able to order a set of recovery disks from ASUS. They will likely charge you for them though. Can you read the entire product code from the COA sticker? You'll need to know the version of Windows installed too. If you can get that info off of the COA sticker you can use it to reinstall Windows.

I created a usb boot drive with Rufus and , plugged it into a windows 10 pc that I want to upgrade! to windows 7 and all looked good because the bootdisk was accepted and said it was loading files to install windows but then just froze with the windows 7 logo.

I cant imagine , what the problem is afterall I booted from windows 10 , restart in uefi usb mode . All started well and then froze like that.

Everytime i try again it freezes on the windows 7 logo after install has started.

Is it possible to reinstall windows 7?

Possibly I did not make the right rufus , settings. Who knows what settings in Rufus to make? Or is this another problem again.

The best RAM will be identical to the one that's already in there, just with a higher rating. If it has a 2GB stick in there now, buy another one from the same manufacturer with the same specification to put in the other slot.

If both slots are already in use - say, two 1GB sticks, buy two 2GB but again, the same as above.

Okay, I got a bitty problem: My Asus laptop got infected with a boot virus and is stuck in "Restart Restore." The place where I bought it (Microcenter) will fix it and save all my stuff for $60 if I sign up for their $30 anti-virus software (suspicous).

...I am dirt poor. A friend suggested I reformat it. I would have to do it in command prompt. All my important stuff is backed up save for three files, and they can be re-created (I am a freelance writer). I really don't want to have to type all that crap again, but I don't think it's worth $90.

Also, the computer did not come with any disks, and I did not make any boot disks. I have a Windows Vista disk from my last computer, but is there anyway I can still get Windows 7 on there when I reformat?

..Or should I plunk down $90? Thanks!

I have an ASUS laptop that won't hold a charge. I plug in to the outlet and turn computer on and it shuts off after about 30 - 60 seconds. I took it to a big box store and they told me it was my hard drive. Could it just be the battery inside the computer??

Please bear with me I have no technical knowledge whatsoever.

Wow funny...

I dont see what the hard drive could have to do with your power supply.

However I'm not that and can't see your machine so...

What you can do is remove the laptops battery from the laptop and then plug in the charger cord and see if it turns on. If it does turn on and STAYS on its working fine and likely either the battery is bad or its not quite making contact to charge

I'm new to the forum due to having an unusual question.

Here's the background.

I had my camera cable plugged into the forward rightside usb port, and the camera wasn't plugged in. My daughter thought she was being helpful by trying to plug the camera end into the next usb port while I wasn't looking. Of course it's not a usb on the camera end, it's a much smaller plug so it didn't fit.

There was the sound of an electrical 'crack' and all went dark and permanently quiet. The laptop now does nothing at all.

I am welcoming of any suggestions (other than using it as a boat anchor as it's not heavy enough) that might help resolve this, or is there no hope.

I'm considering buying this ASUS K501LX-EB7 which only contains a 256gb SSD. However, if I could add a 2.5" HDD then I would be much more happier and wouldn't have to settle for the i5-5200U model which has more storage. I was able to get a picture of the inside from someone who owns the laptop which is here. So I guess my question is, would I be able to add a 2.5" HDD, and would it be as simple as opening the back and sliding it in? I've replaced the HDD in a laptop before, but I didn't have to remove the entire back as they made the HDD easily accessible. Thanks in advance to anyone that replies!

You could use an external hard drive for extra storage.

Or buy a higher capacity mechanical hard drive fit that instead of the SSD.

If I were you and wanted to install 7 but be cautious, I`d pull the drive, install a ssd and dive into it. The most important driver and the only one I`d worry about now is the network driver.

There is no fool proof method for getting drivers, but I`d go right to the manufacturer`s website and punch in your model and start looking.

Once you have the network drivers installed just run windows update.

Ole, HI and Welcome to Seven Forums

The crashes are related to your Hard Disk (either controller, or HD itself) and some really old drivers. Please run the following:

1-A system file check
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

2-A hard drive chkdsk


Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
B- Elevated Command Prompt:

Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.

Double click on the Source column header.

Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).

Copy/paste the results into your next post.

i'm trying to figure which bios i should be using from the asus website. the laptop is asus k52n running windows10 x64 pro. the current bios reads v2.13, dated 08/21/2010.

the asus website has nothing listed for windows 10. there is a choice between "windows 7 32/64" and "others". the listing for windows 7 x64 is described as v2.30.3 which would seem to be a newer version, however it is dated as 07/14/2010 which is older than my current version. the "others" listing is described as v3.12 and dated 11/24/2010, which is definitely more recent than my current version.

i'd appreciate some advice on which to choose. i've been having some bs(od) issues for some time and i'd like to see if a bios change would help. here's a link to the asus driver webpage:

This question may be totally newbie sounding but I just purchased an Asus laptop. The problem I'm having is that instead of typing out a closing speech mark, like " when typing shift & ' I instead get a @. Like wise, if I type shift & 2 I get "

Have I done something to switch the keys accidentally or is this a fault in the laptop?

I think this is the model information:-

Not sure if that helps. But could someone possibly help me with this? I'm getting rather annoyed at all the problems which seem to be occuring on it.

Were there any errors during the backup restoration (I assume you mean the one from the recovery partition)? It would be very odd if the restore went without a hitch and then the machine still could not boot, unless there were some hard drive problem. RAM, I suppose, too, but that seems less likely.

A:Asus z33 laptop runs hot

Could be dust build up.
This is a quote " The CPU is placed at the bottom of the system unit towards the rear with intake fan to help cool the processor (with exhaust air ejected out in the rear). However, the laptop's feet are too short to help provide good airflow. I would have to use an object to hoist the rear up a little bit to allow air to flow in under the unit. "

It's probably a driver issue. Go to the ASUS website and see if they have drivers for Windows 7. If they do, download and install them and you should be good to go. If not, you may not be able to get those special keys working.

This laptop refuses to generate a system image for recovery. The only thing ever achieved has been a system repair disk. It will never acheive writing to an external drive (multiples and always with major space - 1TB WD USB3 brand new and formatted) included. It fails at the 50% mark or before always.

I have done extensive hardware testing and worked with ASUS technical division on tests. I used their downloaded and recommended backup software, which also failed. The laptop was sent back to ASUS under warranty and was eventually sent back with no changes. I was told that the laptop had passed all hardware tests, and that I now had to approach Microsoft regarding their software? RMA# AUAS351243

I'm new to Windows 8 and so far it's been a headache compared to previous versions. It came with my new laptop which does not have a DVD drive. I have 8gb of RAM and it's slow. It's loaded with bloatware I want gone.

I created the bootable USB drive but can't figure out how to get the laptop to boot via USB. Its not even an option in the BIOS menu... unless I am missing something. The only option in "Boot" is to disable or enable Windows Boot Manager. I did a quick re installation but obviously it just put the bloatware right back on.

Hi all,

I have been thinking of getting the following laptop:

However, I have also seen these:

I am looking for opinions on which one to get.


A:Which laptop - Acer or Asus?

first question - what are you going to use the PCs for
video editing
the only difference in the asus is the CPU & harddrive and the RAM as far as i can see in the spec
the cpu is only slightly better on the K55VD-SX696H rank 273 in cpu passmark - but the cheaper one is rank 292
I would probably go for the more memory version K55VD-SX494H - if i was using any high memory programs like video editing etc
But i dont like Asus - the support site for drivers has not been good
although appears better now

the Acer V3-571G I'm not sure if the graphics is better in the asus then the acer , cant find a benchmark for the asus

I would probably look towards the K55VD-SX494H - but would want to find out more about the graphics - if you intended doing any gaming
also the Acer has bluetooth and a 5-1 card reader rather than a 2-1 card reader- not sure if that is important enough to make the decision and if you need bluetooth

Acer and Asus appear to be Taiwanese multinational and not owned by anyone else
for example Acer also make gateway

I am considering this laptop. ASUS G750JW-DB71 17.3-Inch Laptop (Black): Computers & Accessories

What I would like to do is install Win 7 on an SSD drive, set it to boot to that drive first, and then pretend Win 8 doesn't exist.

Potential problems? Recommendations? Better to Wipe HDD before install? Ideally Win 7 would store all data on HDD and just have OS on SSD.

What would YOU do? And why?

I would purchase Start8 and install that.....W8 will then look and feel like W7. You wont notice the difference....and W8 boots up and shuts down quicker than W7.

I would suggest MSE for complete coverage -

Supplement with on-line scanners if need be. I would not advise installation of Zone Alarm.

I wouldn't know, but a great market indication would be to check Ebay for similar poratables and see what people are paying.
