Question about ASUS Z71A Notebook

My Asus Z1A Laptop is not starting up

The other day as i was moving my laptop i hit the back of the laptop against an object. The collision was not hard and there is no evidence on the shell of any impact. But the piece inside the laptop that the adapter would insert into is not there. I dont know the name of the piece. The adapter is still working, the light is coming on. How bad is the situation?

If the peice you are refering to is the PCMCIA slot, as long as you don't need to use it you'll be ok, but if you want to put in a wireless card for example you will have to use a USB type wireless dongle instead.

I fixed visual problems with patch but often my guns don't work. Enemy stands right in front of me and not one bullit hits them. Any idea why?

There is a disparity between the object (soldier) and the collision box that surrounds him. This could be a programming fault but is more likely some form of file corruption.

I would try a complete uninstall reinstall then apply the patch to see if this cures it.

I have a 2006 mitsubishi galant es. I was recently in a rear end collision. The following day my brake lights went out. A couple hours later while reversing out of a parking spot, I went to put my car in...

here is what the code means.

P0705 Mitsubishi Description The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

When is the code detected? The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position and sends a signal to the TCM.

Its back firing and keeps cutting off cleaned the filter

Hi: Did you hit a rock or other solid object ,Some times if you hit a hard object it will Shear or partly move the Flywheel Key and throws the timing off which will cause kick back and back firing. If it is back firing through the carburetor it is probably flooding cause by a dirty or faulty fuel jet and seat, if so clean and check the jet in the carburetor. Hope I have helped you AL

Could Rear end damage from a wreck cause my speedometer and gas gauges to stop working?

You must understand that collision stresses the ENTIRE vehicle. Just because it was hit from behind, does not mean that there is not collision damage in the front. I had a vehicle in my shop several years ago that was hit from the rear. The engine began knocking shortly after. It turned out that the collision had jarred the engine hard enough to cause the crankshaft to crack. This type of damage is extremely rare, but can happen. Trying to convince the insurance company that this was collision damage was a real trick.... On the other hand, fuel sending unit failures are quite common (without any collision) and can cause your fuel gauge to stop working.

The only way to determine if your problems are caused by the collision would be to first diagnose the problem. Only then can it be determined if the current failure is caused by collision or possibly caused by a more commonly known failure type.

I ran into the back of my mates moped at 15mph and since then my steering has been stiff when riding.. its almost as if someone is pushing against they way i want to turn... any solutions please? thanks!

sounds to me as the stearing spindle is bent due to the collision, that or the lower bearing race is damaged, it doesnt take a hard crash to do this .

My hardrive fell off my bed (2 feet height) and is now refusing to work. i plug it in, then it makes a weird noise. after a few seconds, it feels weird like its magnetic or something. if you are holding it...

Unfortunately, your hard disk drive is now dead... A large fall or shaking a hard drive can cause the reader head (think of a record player needle going along the grooves) to break. (No needle, no sound)
I doubt you'll be able recover data especially if shook it and it maybe feels like a piece broke off inside or something. (It could have been platter collisions or something else technical from the fall; point is it is now broken.) You might have the tiniest chance of recovering something if you use a USB enclosure for Hard Disk Drives, but I would guess 98% against it. I'm sorry about your loss. In the future be sure not to shake the drive or move the computer while on and you hear the spinning of the drive. You of course know not to drop it... I'm sure it was just an accident. Remember to always back up. Again sorry and I hope this helps, thank you.

Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel

this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

How much force would she experience if she stopped in 0.2 seconds because she hit a brick wall?

Newton's law of action/reaction

The force would be the same is the answer

In any collision, there are always four quantities which are the same for both objects involved in the collision. Each object experiences the same force (Newton's third law) for the same amount of time, leading to the same impulse, and subsequently the same momentum change. Only the acceleration and the velocity change can differ for the two objects. The object with the least mass always receives the greatest velocity change and acceleration.
