Asus Laptop Suddenly Shut Down


I was using my laptop yesterday and it just suddenly shut down. We all thought it was overheating or because the battery is flat. However, after like 2 hours, when we switched it on again, it wouldn't start up. I mean the system would start running for 5 s and then dead again.could someone tell me what's the problem with it. The more i try to start the computer, the shorter the system will try to run.

Computer Suddenly And Unexpectedly Shut Down

A friend of mine was using her computer, browsing the internet, when it suddenly and unexpectedly shut down. There was no error message - it just powered off. Now, when i attempt to reboot it, nothing happens. And when i say nothing, i mean nothing. I press the power button, and there is absolutely no change whatsoever in the behavior of the computer. No black screen, blinking lights, beeping noises, fan noises, hard drive spinning, etc. Imaging you tried to power up a computer that is not plugged in to the wall - that is what happens. I thought it had to be the power supply. So i replaced it. Still no change. Then i thought maybe the on/off switch was bad. So i checked it with a meter - its not. Also, there is 3. 3v across the wires heading to the power button. Any suggestions on what i should check next?

Computer Shut Down Suddenly, Now Not Booting

Does this sound like a blown power supply? How do i test for sure, barring swapping to a new ps immediately, since i don't have one lying around? I was just playing a game of left 4 dead and bam, complete shut off, and now when i try and power back on, absolutely nothing happens, no post, no fans, no leds. It sounds like a power issue, but i want to be sure.

Laptop Just Suddenly Turns Off When Playing Games

My laptop does this, i originally thought it was a problem with the cable and the wall socket and that it might run well on the battery, i dont get this. I have a gericom 3. 06ghz pentium 4 processor and 512mb of ram, ive only had it for like 4months and i play a game online called "americas army" this takes up approx 250mb of ram a big game yes, i never used to have this problem, i could play americas army anytime i wanted without turning off or anything and now all of a sudden i go to play it and the laptop turns off off, the same with a chat website i go on called "lycos chat" now you may think an internet chat? Why does that shut down?

Well when you run it the chat takes up 50mb of ram and yes you have guessed it even that shuts the computer down, i went on the chat today with only the battery in(not the cable) and it worked fine no problems and im on it now wioth the cable plugged in. If i went to play americas army now it would turn my laptop off, i can play other games perfectly ok its just internet games like that, it did it with some games within half life 2 as well(the ones which i tried out). I like 1st person shooters but if thats all what happens then whats the point in me having them, ive tried to reinstall the software and nothing happens i get same problem. I thought it might of been something to do with an error or a virus or something but other day i reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows and still happens. Both fans are working because i can feel air coming out, the laptop is very hot and now when i go to run something that takes up abit of memory the fans just kick in straight away even on little tasks(e.g over 10-20mb of ram needed to perform)

The fans never used to do this like kick in so much only once needed. I have downloaded the following software and here are my results from a few tests:

Mobile meter: frequency 3. 10ghz, temperature 75 degrees c, change rate 0. 00w, hdd#0 55 degrees c

Rightmark cpu clock utility: cpu core clock and throttle:1600, cpu load and os load: 8%

Cpu frequency id and voltage id(fid and vid): 23. 0

Problem With Asus Laptop

Recently my computer has been acting badly. My laptop is around 1 and a half years old and it is an asus m51v duo t9400. My battery has been going bad for a while know but recently it has been so bad that many times my laptop shut down due to power failure because the battery ran out. So a few days ago when i turned the computer on it said 'check disk for consistency' or something and i let it finish the check but then it frequently went to the scan every-time i turned the computer on. The computer also has now been running slow and when the computer loads i cant turn on the internet (not connection because the connection is fine it just doesn't turn on at all) and then the computer freezes. I then turn it off on the button and when i turn it on again the whole process begins. Once it also said something about this vista not being genuine but it is. However then around two days later the check disk for consistency screen didn't appear and the internet started working again but then again after around a day the problems started again. Now it sometimes asks for start-up repair when i turn it on and i did it but it later froze on a black screen so i had to turn my laptop off again on the button. My internet still doesn't work and makes other programs freeze when i tr to turn them on. So what could be the problem? Is it the hard drive or something else? Im not the best at understanding computers so please make it as simple as possible.

Which Laptop Is Better, Asus Or Gateway?

I plan on getting a new laptop with three things in mind: price, speed and gaming. A refurbished asus model: ux50vrf-rx05

$399. 99

Intel centrino processor 1. 4 ghz and 4gb ram

Nvidia geforce 105m graphics card (an amazing deal considering the low price)

Windows vista (upgradeable to windows 7 for $65)

The other is a new gateway model: nv5390u

$479. 99

Amd athlon ii dual-core processor 2. 0ghz and 4gb ram

Ati radeon hd 4200 graphics card (not that bad but not as good as nvidia)

Windows 7

So the problem is, the asus is cheaper by $15 with the windows 7 upgrade and it has a much better graphics card according to http://www.Notebookcheck.net/mobile-graphics-cards-benchmark-list. 844. 0.html

However, the gateway has a better processor. Which would be better for gaming? (I am well aware neither would end up being a top-notch gaming machine, but they're the best in my price range. My current laptop is a toshiba satellite l455 with pentium t4400 2. 2ghz, 4gb ram and intel gma 4500m graphics card. )

Software To Use Asus Laptop Camera

Do i need to download software to use my asus laptop camera?

Answer:- the answer to this depends on a few different things. Did you wipe it clean and reformat it with a fresh install of windows, and not use the recovery media that came with the computer? Then you might need to download the drivers for the web cam from asus and their support site at http://support. Asus.com

Are you just looking to have a web cam conversation with people, where they can see you on your cam and you can see them? Then you would need to download the same software as the people you want to talk to like skype http://www.Skype.com or yahoo messenger http://messenger.yahoo.com or windows live messenger (msn messenger) http://windowslive.com/desktop/messenger

Are you looking to perform for people in front of your webcam, and have the images sent to your web site? Yes, you would need to download software for that too. And there are hundreds of different software suites for that, like camupload. http://www.Spanto.com/shareware/camuploaŚ but of course, you need your own website for this to work. Do you just want to take pictures with the camera and edit them? Then you can do that online. http://www.Cameroid.com/ is a site you can go to that will access your camera, and allow you to edit the pictures online. No downloading of software necessary. So. Do you need to download software to use your asus laptop camera? It all depends on what you want to do.

Replacing Asus A6f Laptop Keyboard

Problem replacing asus a6f laptop keyboard - can't find any good guide? I've been trying to replace my a6f keyboard but i get stuck when it comes to the part where you're supposed to remove the ribbon. I just can't seem to move the white corners, whether it's up, down, left or right. What i did find on the 'net is: "to unlock it, carefully pull up on the two tabs; one located on each corner of the connector". But i'm not sure if it's regarding the a6f model because my tabs are just static, they look attached to the board. If anyone can advice, or point me to an illustrated guide, that would be great.

Power Supply Adapter To Use Asus Laptop In Uk

What do i need to buy so i can use my asus laptop in the uk? I am a uk citizen visiting my finance in the usa, we bought an asus ul50v laptop whilst here as i intend on moving here permanently. I have to go back to the uk for a little while and i wish to take my laptop with me, what can i use to convert the wattage or what power supply adapter can i buy?

I previously asked this question here and it has remained unanswered for 3 days so by power adapter is it the 'entire assembly including the ac adapter', or just the cord leading up to the ac adapter with the correct end?

If i need to buy a whole new assembly would this work with my laptop: http://amzn. To/f6gwht

If not where would i find somewhere that does sell what i need?

Pc Is Suddenly Laggy

This problem started suddenly. My pc seems to boot fine, and all the programs run as usual except starting any program is really slow now. The pointer jumps around, and the system is generally laggy while any program is starting (browser, im client, word processor, media player). I can still play video and mp3 files, but video files are slightly choppy - still watchable. No viruses or ad-software has been detected, nothing strange seems to be running. I don't have a lot of processor usage. Only lags when starting programs. I have about 11gigs free space. I have defragged, run norton systemworks, memtest86. I haven't been able to do a full chkdsk, because it was going so slowly - it would take about 48 hours straight to run to completion.

Joystick Suddenly Switch Off

I have a strange "problem" with my thrustmaster topgun afterburner 2 joystick. The problem is when i for an example play h. A. W. X. It suddenly switches off the assistance mode, or fires the missiles by itself. It even switches targets randomly. I have tried everything so far, from updating the mobo drivers and directx. Don't ask me why it started to behave like this, it just started one day. I haven't tested it with dcx9 yet (no fly zone mission) or any other game. However, it responds normaly (no jerky motions or similar).

Games Suddenly Laggy

I've got a p4 3. 06ghz, 786mb ddr-i ram, 845e max( old mobo), in my old rig. This setup used to run hl-2 , doom3, gta san andreas, swat4. At 1024x768(low-med settings), getting 20-60 fps in all. Problem started when i uninstalled these games when i wasnt playing them for some time, but since re-installing, games have become laggy and unplayble at even 640x480 rez, at lowest setting. I checked my cpu temp which was 62c- 66c at idle, i dont know if this could be a problem since i think p4 temps are usually around these, or am i wrong? I've googled around but coudnt find any answer to this kind of problem.

Mouse Suddenly Freeze

It's been almost a week that i'm having this weird problem. All of a sudden, i can't get *any* mouse to work. It seems to work fine when i boot up, but it's just a matter of time till it stops responding!

The first time the problem showed up with my regular ps2 mouse. I was browsing some site and the mouse suddenly froze. After a while it comes back, the cursor goes berserk for a few seconds, and from then on no response. It just wouldn't work. The whole system seemed to work fine though. I restarted, and the mouse was dead right from the start. Luckily enough, i remembered i had another one somewhere, a newer usb optical mouse. (Ms intellimouse optical with a cable) so, i swap mice using usb this time, boot up, the mouse works fine for a couple of minutes and suddenly "dies on me" too! The red light under the mouse disappears too. If i restart, sometimes it will work (but -again- only for a minute or two) but usually it doesn't even flash its light as it's supposed to do when it's being initialized. If i shut down and switch on, it always works in the start, but it's just a matter of time till it stops responding again. The problem is very weird because it happens with 2 different mice on two different kinds of ports (ps2 and usb), so this leaves no room for the chance that either one of the ports, or any of the mice, is broken! Other devices work great on the very same usb ports where the mouse hangs!

Sometimes when it stops working i get a notification from windows that a usb device has malfunctioned and is no more recognisable. No matter what, the mouse disappears from the hardware list. Of course i've tried uninstalling the mouse and let the windows reinstall it, and updated the drivers but it's no good. The problem persists. I've also noticed that it stops working only if you're moving it around. If you don't touch it at all, it seems ok. The red light works, it will point, it will click. But after a short while it dies again - as if some buffer overruns or something. Furthermore, if you were holding down one of its buttons when it hangs, windows is tricked into believing it's still down, and won't even allow certain keyboard keys to work too! I hate this when it happens!

I wrote a dos-based program that calls the actual hardware interrupt to access the mouse directly, it seems to initialize successfully, displays the pointer but it's dead again as usual. However it's not in real dos environment, (it's only xp's console mode dos) so i don't know if this is actually mapped to the windows driver instead. Sorry if this was long, but i'm really frustrated; i can hardly use my computer. I've tried virtually *everything*. I want to avoid a format because the problem looks so weird, that i'm not quite sure if it's going to help. I found a few threads describing similar problems, but no solution was found in any of them. My hardware is an intel p4 at 2. 4ghz on an asus p4pe m/b, running xp pro sp2, 512mb ddr in one bank. I've never had any hardware conflicts whatsoever and i haven't installed any new hardware lately. Doublechecked for viruses/spyware etc, nothing suspicious. All i can think of is my power supply box (350w, got it a month ago) but mice generally require minimum power, i don't see how it could be an issue. I also downloaded a freeware program that monitors voltages/temperatures and stuff, and it all looks perfectly regular. No weird spikes in the graphs when the mouse hangs or anything. Anyone got any idea?

Computer Monitor Suddenly Went Blank

I was working on my computer when the monitor suddenly went black. Nothing seemed to be different in the tower; there were no sound changes, no light changes. The monitor's power light stayed on. I recently acquired another computer and monitor from a friend and decided to hook both monitors to both towers to troubleshoot. Both monitors work fine when hooked up to the second computer, and both monitors stay blank when connected to the first computer. So, the problem has to be in the tower. What sort of problem does it sound like i have? What should my next step be? The only spec i have for the machine, since i can't access the hard drive, is that it's running xp.

Pc Suddenly Died While In Sleep Mode

My pc suddenly died last night and won't ever start up again! I was wondering if any expert could identify the problem. I don't get it, is the problem my hard-drive or motherboard? For 8 months this rig worked, and then last night after going into energy conversation mode (you know, when pcs are quasi-sleeping), it just never woke up!

Since then, i've never been able to boot up the computer. Obviously in bios, there is no harddrive recognized. But here's the weird thing: usually when a hard-drive fails in my experience, the pc at least still boots up. It's just that the drive won't be recognized. But in my case, it just puts a wrench into the whole thing (can't get past the sata detection stage in boot up, and freezes). I've tried to test if its the hard-drive or the motherboard. I plugged my sata harddrive into my brother's computer. Thing is, after this, i cant even enter bios! It also freezes, but to an -even worse- state. Once again confused; once we unplugged the hard-drive my brother's computer continued to boot. It's almost like, anything with my hard-drive plugged into it will fail. But i thought pcs would -at least- continue to boot. Does this mean it's my hard-drive's fault then? Does this situation sound familiar to anyone?

Green Drives Suddenly Disappear From System

I have 2 wd green drives and they both seem to have the same issue. After the computer is on for a while they suddenly dissappear from the system. Sometimes they come back and vista says they need to be formatted. I have 2 1tb segate drives that have been working flawless and a wd raptor that just keeps running. I like the cooler running drives for archiving, but i'm tempted to get more segate drives since they seem to be much more reliable. I want to get a replacement drive, restore from my whs server and then rma these drives back to wd, or thats the plan. But i'm a bit out of the loop on what i should look at buying. I always go for the deals!

Oh yea and wd diagnostics never detect a problem with these drives, they just simply stop working out of the blue and require a computer restart.

Internet Disconnects Suddenly And During A Phone Call

My internet always disconnects suddenly and during a phone call. Have 2wire modem from at&t? Everday, my modem suddenly disconnects from the internet and i'd have to wait a few minutes for it to connect again. Sometimes, it would suddenly shut off and turn back on, which i'd have to wait even longer for it to connect back to the internet again. Also, when i use the phone, the modem disconnects and has to reconnect to the internet. Same thing happens when i end a phone call. This is really annoying especially when i'm downloading something or watching videos on the internet. What's wrong with the modem? Could the problem be with the phone line? Maybe the phone line is old? It's been doing this ever since i got it, which was probably 2 years ago.

Itouch Screen Suddenly Stayed Black

My itouch is about two to three years old, i can't exactly recall. It worked relatively fine up until this morning. I went to watch a youtube video and the screen suddenly went very dull. I figured it was the brightness level so i went to fix that, the level was half way up. Then i figured i should turn it off. After i did that the screen stayed black. It would be on because i could hear the clicking noise of my password but it was totally black. Then i plugged it into my computer to restore it and the screen turned bright white. I did restore it, but it won't go back to normal. What is causing this and how should i fix it?
