Caution those who have this kind of use!

Did you mean, why not or not use while charging the laptop?

Many, lithium-ion batteries of the battery being used in laptop battery. This battery, charging becomes violently degradation and followed by a state that is a 100 percent, I would shrink the life of the battery (?) is.


Attention also anyone who "every day, have a charge the laptop before going to bed." Battery has been said that the number of times that can be charged about 500 times. In addition, the battery as long as they continue to charge, tries to keep 100% of the full charge. However, in practice, always because it has happened discharge is in the personal computer, it is finely repeatedly that state because charging, the consumption ? battery charge the battery is 100% ? discharge.

The second is, that you do not blindly charge.

If you have to charge every day, it is will be increased, but the number of charges by that amount of course. And such as a battery is charged only when the cut 20%, you can reduce the number of charges to be decide my own rules.

Third, that the bear in mind as much as possible to 80% charge.

If there is an item that can be set the state of charge of the battery of the laptop power settings, it can be set so as not to be in full charge (?).

I have to try that "sub-zero beer" to drink at home, "Strong via cooler"

For example, in the case of certain laptop DELL, proceeds HP charging battery in the Control Panel ? Power Options ? desktop mode, you can set the use of the from the desktop mode tab, battery.

? Whether or not there is a power setting, it is more on the model of the laptop

The battery is a consumable. Please, let as much as possible long-lasting using it well!

If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

John, most monitors made have no service guide.
all are different, every brand and every model
some of this thin devices, like this are snap apart
and some are glued (using glue not unlike "stickynotes"
they do that also to make it water proof (limited) so that makes it super hard to repair, just like many notepads,
or both. they are all very tricky to work on, (that is the price for thin)
the users manual at asus has no facts here.
nor do they list a service manual on it. (sad)
google for it or youtube it is the only way.

ill looked on youtube, see nada
buy dead one on ebay,learn to take the dead one apart first
then work on yours.
other than that, call ASUS, ask for service manual
or google all week,

Wait until the installer prompts you. The generic mouse driver in bios is not good for the mouse you are using.

I just had a similar problem with the same Asus model. It drained the battery yesterday and today wouldn't start even after charging for 15min (the middle light was on so it was charging). The light bulb light was on though even when it wasn't charging. Tried pressing the button several times. Didn't help. Tried holding it for several seconds. Didn't help. But when I hold the button for around 30sec the light bulb turned off. And then another press and it turned on as normal. So the laptop must have been hibernated/sleeping. But it did give me a heart attack, especially when I realised that I will have to take it to Currys for repair where their very unknowledgable KnowHow don't know how to fix anything (send a laptop three times and still didn't fix the problem, they only know how to install software updates).

I think it is running a test mode. Some kind of button pressing combination might free it from this.
It might go away if you can plug it into a vga source (pc, laptop) and hopefully change it from there.
Good luck.
