Is the battery charged. normally the battery need to be charged for 24 hours.
just put the battery in the laptop and charge it. if it still do not recongnise it after that. then you nee to go into BIOS had set the detection on.

    first shut off the computer, you will see instruction when you restart the computer. either on the top of the bottom of the screen. (it will diseppear fast, if you don't pay attention).

    some thing like (F2) for setup or any other function key. F2, DEL, F12 or other set of instruction to get you into BIOS. Once you are in the BIOS, scroll throught all of the tabs to find the battery setup. either manual or auto. (very few choice).

    if the mfger has their own BIOS, them you should have the choice, otherwise you have to going to the porgram to setup the bettery detection.

    good luck

    this may be a dumm question, did you reisntall the battery??? take it out, mak sure all the contacts on the computer and the battery are in good working order, and install it again.

    I am lost at this point. your computer is operating on Lunix. and is open software. you should be able to look on the internet and find everything you need (software). as far as hardware, you need to

    go to the mfger web site and see if they have updated software for the computer. or you can call the support and see they can give you a hand on this.

    where did you get the laptop??

    go to the vendor web site and download the utility driver.

    install it, then you can configure it in the control panel.

    option: if you have the installation CD came with the laptop. insert that and see if you can find the utility software.

    this is the best I can do for you.

    go to the site, some other people has the same type of problem. you might able to find some answer there.

My asus 250T will not power on. I just purchased it December 2014.

If it is still under warranty (and it should be) call ASUS immediately.

You can TRY removing the battery and holding down the power plug for 60 seconds with the computer unplugged. Then plug it back in and try to start it again. If it works, turn it off and replace the battery and go on your way merrily. But a new computer should not have this sort of problem.

Netbook Screen Turns to White Noise after Turning on within 1 Minute

Could be a problem with the flat cable (the connection from video to motherboard) but since your screen starts to fail after a little time could be a problem with the integrated Intel GPU too.
If your model has the second GPU (Like Nvidia Ion) try to disable it and see what happen.
A good test is to turn on you netbook and leave it on Bios settings page to see if the issue is software related or not.
Another test is to hook an external monitor (if you have a VGA or HDMI port available) and see if the GPU is ok.
If the problem is the flat cable you can try to replace it but if you have a faulty GPU and you are out of warranty you need th replace the entire motherboard because normally GPU is part of the chipset and can't be replaced.

I have a ASUS G73J and I cant get the lights for the keyboard to turn on.

Hello. This is what I do every time my keyboard lights go off. Go to program. Click open Asus Utilities, Click open e-driver, which will let you down load all the drivers for your Asus computer. You should see a number of options you can pick to down load or pick ATK Package for keyboard lights. I usually down load everything in case there was an update for my drivers.

Won'tt read my battery says it cannot be detected, jus bought a new charger today because i lost my old one, is it the battery or the charger?

No your charger is fine so long you got the proper replacement, even if the battery is low it should be detected, you may have a software issue in windows. Sometimes when people upgrade their operational system it will not detect all of the hardware causing all kinds of issues, but to be on the safe side I would have your system checked.

My bluray drive sometimes reads my dvds and sometimes it does not !!! wtf?? i just bought it today!!:(

i have issues from asus products MANY times from brand new desktop boards that were bricked to the issue you are currently having and i received little help from asus (more like non exsistant customer service)anyway, i am assuming you have tried checking the asus website for any driver updates, bios updates, and firmware updates. if you ahve and all of these have failed you may actually have to CALL asus (calling is about the only way to get any help from asus). hopefully you can get asus to take care of you because if you have tried all software firmware, and bios updates you may have a deffective BR drive.

My brand New Asus laptop keeps dropping off wireless network

try it on another wireless connection and see how it works. Belkin routers are usually not the best, that's why they are so cheap

If the prob persist on another wireless network than contact ASUS technical support
