Go to device manager and choose your wireless device which would be the Atheros. Click properties>power management>disable the allow windows to turn off this device to save power(or something like that).
I've been having a very specific problem with my x202 model and I'm wondering if anyone here can help.
In a nutshell, sometimes, about 5 minutes after waking from sleep, it will simply turn off. No bluescreen, no "windows is shutting down" routine, just off. It happens even though the battery is fully charged and it's plugged in. It occurs very randomly. No problem for weeks at a time and then one day it just happens.
While researching the problem I found that the exact issue is not uncommon for zenbook users, as described in this blog post:The Technologically Inclined Theologian: Zenbook Prime and the Unexpected Shutdown Problem
Has anyone else experienced this?
For some reason, the third party AC adapter I've been using was the cause of the problem! Of all the damn things... I was browsing a forum, and someone mentioned that their AC adapter caused mouse jitters. Desperate for a solution, I unplugged the third party AC adapter (iTekiro, from Amazon if anyone cares) and sure enough, running on the battery, the touchpad behaved perfectly. I plug in the original ASUS AC adapter, touchpad still works perfectly. I plug in the iTekiro adapter, touchpad gets the jitters. I plug in the ASUS AC adapter, jitters go away. Repeat this about 5 times, and it is very clear that the AC adapter by iTekiro causing the problem of the mouse jitters.
I take back all the bad things I said about ASUS. I highly recommend people do not use iTekiro AC adapters.
I picked up 3 S200E for the family. I need to make recovery disks. Will I need to make 3 sets of recovery disks (one for each laptop) or do you think I'll be fine with one set for all three?
I remember with Dell, the disks used to be interchangeable as long as it was the same model. Thanks.
Hi all, I'm new to this owner's lounge. I had a quick question I couldn't find an answer to. (Apologies: I haven't searched entirely through this thread, so I apologize if this has already come up). I purchased the Q200E yesterday and ran the ASUS updater and now the touchscreen is no longer working. Is there a way to enable/disable it? I don't know if I accidentally disabled it somewhere.
Looking at the OP, I noticed the Q200e is said to have a 2nd generation I3. I picked one up yesterday and although I haven't opened it yet, the store tag and box state i3-3217U which is a 3rd gen. Any thoughts on what else may be different from someone who recently bought from Best Buy?
If I put the antenna into the AUX connection on the card, bluetooth works, wireless N works, but wireless G(my network) does not work, very low signal. So I couldn't test Widi under wireless N. I wonder if you can just split the single antenna or just short the Main and Aux connection together. I am just going to send the 6235 back to Amazon and pick up the 6205 since I know for a fact that it works with windows 8 and Widi. Bluetooth is not a big deal to me on the laptop.
So no one else has experienced the random shutdowns I mentioned above?
