Question about ASUS A6U Notebook

1 Answer

My Asus A6 Entertainment Series Notebook Won't Boot Up/ More...

Firstly, im not sure if that is the right product but it'll have to do...

Right, I was recovering my Asus A6 Notebook after my brother got a string of virus' and other bits and pieces only to have the power go out and my notebook to loose power. As this happened I tried to repeat the process only to have it not work.

It said there was insufficient memory to complete the restoration.

I then inserted the drivers CD which came with the notebook nothing happened.

After the notebook had been switched off for about 15 minutes I pressed the 'turn-on' button and it turned on.

I was wondering if there was possibly a 'hold' switch or something which I've been pressing without actually knowing it... or what else I could possibly do?

Anyway, thanks and many thanks if you can help me.

    It sounds like it was overheating there, you say you left it for 15 mintues then it turnt on ok, how far did it get.

    also where were you recovering from, a DVD or from it's own HDD?

    as you tried it again, and it failed, stating the plain, it could be a memory error, but overheating will cause all sorts of other problems, so check with your hand the bottom of the laptop near the fans.. if it's really hot it's overheating, also if you can leave the laptop on.. just turn it on and see how logn it stays on for... again checking to see when it does turn off, if it's hot.

    let me know how you get on.

    If it wont boot then wipe the drive ,ie ,Format it and reinstall a Fresh New OS Install,ie,XP or Vista

    This will effectively wipe the drive and any virus's as well,

    But you lose your info too,so.......

    With that in mind,back up your important stuff before you wipe the drive.

    Good Luck with the reinstall,

My camera in my notebook a6 entertainment notebook sieries seems to not be working. i dont think the driver is installed... and where can i get an usable app to take vidio's with it?

Check to see if the driver is installed. Look in the Device Manager then look for Imaging Device. Click the + sign next to the Imaging Device to expand and see your camera.

You can always download and reinstall your driver.
You can always download Manycam and install it. Go and in the search box type: ""(without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When thesite opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says FindSoftware. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the whitesearch area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your resultslook for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it andinstall it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs itwould like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additionswhatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use,and you will always know where your webcam software is.

I need a sound driver for my asus A6R series entertainment nootbook... Model:A6R mb ver: A6RP i do not know much that all information i got from the notebook..thank you..

Sound driver and Audio driver is one and the same thing. I do not know that which Operating system you are using (like Windows xp, Windows Vista and Windows 7). To check this out go to "Computer" or "My Computer" and right click it and then point the mouse pointer to "Properties". A new windows will open and you will be shown the version of Windows (either XP, Vista or Windows 7).

For windows XP download from the following link by copy pasting it in your internet browser

For Windows 7/Windows Vista 6.305 download the

"Realtek AC'97 Drivers for Windows 7/Vista 6.305"
from the following link

For older version of Windows Vista 2.50 use the following link

Good luck and take care!

I need audio driver for my ASUS A6 Series laptop

There's the place to start; unfortunately asus makes it a pain to get direct links to files so you'll hafta navigate their selections, the A6u is found in there:

Notebooks > A6000 > A6U

From there they request your operating system version, and that's about it... the drivers are laid out right in front of you.

I hope that goes well for you.

I downgraded my pc from vita to xp and rebooted but the sound drive seem not to work. my notebook is asus X58cseries


Go online and download a 'sound driver'
try some, but very little as there are you'll easily find a decent driver that''ll restore the contact between your system and the speakers in it.

I hope this is useful, and greets,

Asus a6 series notebook problem

After pressing the power button to boot up your unit, immediately tap (just keep on tapping it) the F2 to go in to bios and set your boot priority.
Try tapping F12 to load boot menu and bootit from the disc but I'm not sure if it is the same as Toshiba laptops.

Hope this helps

Asus a6 laptop keyboard problem

your number lock is on. Since there is not enough room on a laptop for the right hand number pad you find on many desktop keyboards, they incorporate it into the text keyboard. Generally there is a key in the upper right side to toggle the number lock, also if you enter the bios mode and check that number lock is not enabled on boot.
