Question about ASUS U Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have purchased an ASUS UX32VD laptop late December 2012. Ever since January, however, the maximum brightness is a lot lower than it used to be. While starting up it shows the true maximum brightness, but then immediately lowers its maximum brightness. The function keys work; they decrease and increase brightness, but never up to its original brightness. I have updated the NVIDIA drivers, removed Power4Gear, set the screen settings to maximum brightness/performance, but nothing seems to work.

SOURCE: How can I adjust me laptop's brightness?

You really cannot adjust screen brightness through windows unless you have calibration software that uses a light detecting frame... I had a Sony Vaio PCG-something and Vista really screwed it up as well. Here's the Sony eSupport website where you can enter your model and reinstall some originals drivers for the computer that may restore functionality to your function keys:

Some things you can do to save battery power: turn of your wireless if you're not using it (there's usually a wifi switch on most laptops, turn it off), set your screen saver to come on as quickly as possible, run as few programs as possible and try to avoid graphic-intense programs.

SOURCE: Blank screen using Vista x64 with Nvidia Forceware Drivers 8600GT

Most like the sound card you have is not compatible with Windows Vista. You need to check the manufacturers website to see if there is any patch for Windows Vista

SOURCE: Display resolution goes from 1024x600 to 800x600 at start up.

try reinstalling the drivers for the onboard graphics and for the monitor. Might be the monitor is not supporting the default resolution.

I've been debugging various backlight brightness problems lately, and I've learned a lot in the process. First lets take a look at how all the bits fit together. There are 3 parts involved in changing the brightness:

  • Detecting brightness up / down key presses

  • Processing the key presses

  • Controlling the actual back light

    Wattage limiter hunter ceiling fan

    As per the Energy Policy Act of 2005, all ceiling fans manufactured or imported into the United States must utilize a light bulb wattage limiter as of January 1, 2007. This limiter limits the capacity of the fan's light kit to a maximum of 40 watts per bulb. Not very bright at all!

    Put in LED lamps and save a lot of work. Go to: it will show you how.

    If the ASUS was purchased with MS Office 2010 then I suggest you take your Notebook back to the shop and ask then for the MS Office product key.

    Printer head for my cannon MG5220 wihich was purchased through amazon in December is not working

    Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
    Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
    After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
    A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.
