Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Where can I get a technical manual for an ASUS laptop K50IJ (2010)

I'd like to open up the laptop to see what my "upgrade" options are, if any. I notice that according to System/Device Manager the laptop uses PCI Express. Is there a way to upgrade a USB port or more from 2.0 to 3.0? Being able to replace a bad hard drive (once "cloned") would also be nice. I've been able to add USB 3.0 functionality on a 2002 PC via a PCI (old style) board with USB 3.0 ports (though obviously not running at full capacity, but still much faster than USB 2.0 would provide.) I would think adding USB 3.0 to a 2010 laptop via PCI Express would be possible unless ASUS just doesn't like to play nice. I'd rather not simply hear another sales pitch from/about ASUS to simply buy a new one. Besides, I like the challenge!

Every thing on a laptop is chip centered, you cannot upgrade hardware.

SOURCE: USB ports not working Acer Aspire laptop

Two solutions would be to either restore your pc to before the problem started,using system restore on accesories menu, or use the recovery cd or the recovery folder Acer laptops usually have on the 'D' drive and re-install usb controllers and drivers.

SOURCE: HP laptop - usb ports

USB ports require drivers to Run, if you do not have a driver for a usb port, windows will try to install them automatically, has this happened with your machine?

if this has not happened, then it could be a problem with the BGA controller chip(this happens rarely)

anyway to check if there are any issues with the hardware go to HP.com and run a live diagnostics from the site

SOURCE: usb does not recognise external hard drive

Your drive is being recognized. However, your computer only has USB 1.1 so you are being notified that USB 2.0 is faster. This message is FYI and will not prevent you from accessing the drive.

After you see that message you should see your external drive in "My Computer" If you don't see the drive you probably need to assign an available drive letter to drive.

Open Windows Help and Support.
Search for "drive letters" and find "assigning drive letters"
This will walk you through the process.

If this helps, please vote for my solution.

Go to a hardware store.
Either that or order a new one online and hope that a guide will be shipped with it.
Sorry for the slightly rude answer, but I cannot recommend trying to change your laptop keyboard unless it is either designed for it or having multiple support/technical experience.

My ASUS K50IJ sound comes from only one speaker. I've tryed everything and the balance seems ok


One of the speakers failed or it has a bad connection.Most likely the non working speaker will need to be replaced.

After update to windows 8 - drivers not working for asus k50ij.


Windows 8 is brand new and they may not have the drivers that you need for your computer on line. You may need to call them and ask them to send you a cd/dvd with the drivers for your computer. It is not always wise to upgrade your computer immediately when a new program such as windows 8 comes out. My advice to you is to reinstall your last windows back on your computer for now and if you want to upgrade to windows 8 check to see if all the drivers are available ahead of time, before you upgrade.

How do I remove the keyboard from Asus K50IJ ?


Try these steps:
1. Place your laptop on a clean, flat surface and remove all power sources from it. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.
2. Use the flathead screwdriver to pop open the hinge cover. Slowly and carefully pry it open from the right side to the left side, exposing the Asus keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Asus K50IJ Keyboard in place. Keep these screws in a safe place.
3. Gently tug the Asus K50IJ Keyboard component toward your laptop screen. You are trying to pull it out of the slot that is located near the palm rest and mouse pad. It doesn't take much force, but you must be firm. Once you have pulled it out of the slot, you can lift it up and remove it from your laptop.

I have the same problem with my laptop Asus K50IJ, and apparently we're not the only ones. It seems that the only solution is manycam.com, as lifeframe utility or driver installations don't solve anything. Hope it helped!
