RESOLUTION

Use Device Manager to troubleshoot possible hardware configuration problems on your computer
In Device Manager, look for marked problems with devices. If there is a problem with a device, it is listed in the hardware tree under Computer.

Additionally, the problem device has a symbol that indicates the type of problem, for example a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device is in a problem state. Note that a device that is in a problem state can function.

A red X indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device that is physically present in the computer and is consuming resources, but does not have a protected-mode driver loaded.

A blue i on a white field on a device resource, in Computer Properties, indicates that the Use Automatic Settings feature is not selected for the device and that the resource was manually selected. Note that this does not indicate a problem or disabled state.

At the top of the property sheet, there is a description of the device. When you click the Resource tab, the window in the middle of the tab indicates which resource types are available for the selected device.

The list box at the bottom contains a Conflicting Device list. This list indicates a conflict with an error code. If any devices are listed as having a conflict, disable the devices in Device Manager. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
2. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box, and then click OK.
3. Restart your computer

If no devices are listed as having a conflict, follow these steps to disable devices in Device Manager:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. On the Hardware tab, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
3. On the Device Manager tab, disable all devices under the following branches:
• Display adapters
• Floppy disk controllers
• Hard disk controllers
• Keyboard
• Mouse
• Network adapters
• Ports
• PCMCIA socket
• SCSI controllers
• Sound, video, and game controllers

To disable a device in Device Manager, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box , and then click OK.
c. Restart your computer.
4. If the problem is resolved, enable the devices that you disabled in step 3, and then verify that no devices are conflicting.

Note Enable devices in the following order:
• COM ports
• Hard disk controllers
• Floppy disk controllers
• Other devices
To enable a device and look for possible conflicts, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to enable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to clear the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box.
c. Click the Resources tab, and then verify that there are no conflicts listed under the Conflicting Device List.

Note that the Resources tab does not appear for each device.
d. Click OK, and then restart your computer.
If this resolves the issue, contact the manufacturer to update the device driver. for the keyboard

Asus Laptop Touchpad trouble shooting


Step 1:
Touchpad Not Working in Laptop b> Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard. The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color. Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop. The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it. Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop. Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.

When you were uninstalling the extra software components you might've uninstalled a keyboard driver that allowed the laptop to recognize those keys. To re-download your drivers and utilities do the following:

  1. Go to the asus site for your laptop model: http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=6afhPttZtPFCOfXG
  2. Go to the "Download" tab
  3. Select your OS
  4. Under Utilities find the driver uninstalled and download it (this might take some trial and error, i'd suggest trying "ASUS FancyStart" utility or "LifeFrame 3 Utility" under the "Utilities" category).
  5. Install the downloaded software.
Hope this was of use!

Dear Friend,
Have you try another combination of function key?, if it doesn't work it means that the touch pad FN key is missing and can be re-install by going to the Asus download web-page:

and select your model number as well as the operating system.

Good Luck!
