I wish my ASUS Laptop to be 'on' 24/7 as an Apache Server. It works perfectly now but after several hours, I cannot visit my web site hosted on this Laptop. Altho the Power Lite is lit, the machine cannot be accessed from my router.

I looked over all the power settings (and there are *many* of them), but can't find suitable settings that:

a. Will allow access 24/7 to my site visitors, But,

b. Let the display go blank after several minutes of *my* not using it.

What are the detailed Power Settings for 24/7 operation without my attendance at the machine, and web site visitors get immediate access to my site ? I don't mind the display going black as long as the machine springs into action when a client visits.

Thank you

I recently purchased an Inspiron Gaming Series Dell laptop and since yesterday when I open it/turn on the power button the screen displays green/white vertical triangle lines (can provide an image). It DOES NOT display the Dell logo at all and doesn't even give me the opportunity to sign in, it just stays stuck on the screen. 
This laptop is fairly new, purchased back in August, so it should still be under warranty, but it worries me that it is having issues when it is still fairly new. What could be the cause of it? Any way I can fix it?

So recently (problem just started about 2 months ago),my laptop has been experiencing extremely low FPS while gaming (WoW), spikes between 10-25 FPS with me already running the game on the lowest possible quality with ALL possible background applications closed. I've tried all possible solutions including running anti-virus/malware scans, CCleaner, Defraggler, updating all drivers, etc. EVERYTHING SHORT of a system wipe which I feel is not something I want to do unless all other means have been expired. I have run some tests and know that this is not a connection issue.

Computer Specs:
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit

I also have GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M
Hard drive capacity are also no where near full.

I can take the laptop back to ASUS for a system wipe but it is not something that I want to do because they would require 5 working days as well as needing to back-up everything on my laptop.

Are there any possible explanation to why this problem occurs? Perhaps some settings tuned wrong or some other hardware issues?

A:Asus ROG G751JY-DH71 gaming laptop review

Sold! As in.. I've been in the market for over a month to buy a gaming laptop and couldn't find one worth wasting money on.

I say this for two reasons:

1) GTX980M - this thing is a whole other beast to the 970M. Forget about the 960M altogether.
2) 1920 x 1080 - THANK F%^&ING GOD!! Stop offering me "gaming" laptops with 4k screens and GTX960M/970Ms that can't possibly drive them! A vast majority of gamers are still playing on 22 inch 1080 res desktop monitors and this thing is only 17". It sounds pretty having that 4K moniker in there.. but.. stop it already!

Hey, I have ASUS K53U

and no AV

My problem is that my computer is so slow :S. I'm running w7 about 4 days, before I had w8, but I thought that w8 is problem what takes much cpu. But w7 is same slow, I can't even play NBA 2k13 normal fps, what should I do? I close all unnessessary apps in task manager but it still hanging. Please help.

And I'm using old windows theme, my search is disabled etc.

A:Poor Windows and gaming performance on Asus K53U

That's not a gaming laptop, by any stretch of the definition.

If you want to play games, here are some options:
- Turn down all graphics settings on games to minimum, and use 800 x 600 resolution. Pray that works.
- Go back to the store you got it from and see if you can return it as store credit to buy a more expensive machine.

So I'm looking to buy a laptop in the near future for university and I want to get the best deal I can for the least money possible. I've researched this a fair amount and I have come up with a few ideas but it would be nice if I could get some other suggestions as well. My price range is between 900$-1500$ but I would like to keep it on the 1300$ side. I want it fast, possibly with the new i& processor and it needs a good video card..

First I saw that the Dell Studio XPS 16 was a decent all around model. I saw that I fix it up with a nice new Intel Core i7 Processor and a good video card for with 500GB memory and 4GB of RAM, I than noticed that i could get a Dell Studio 15 with the same hardware for quite a bit less. (All of this is running on Windows 7). What I'm asking for is a few suggestions from people who have possibly been in the same situation, I want the best deal possible for an affordable laptop that is fast and good for gaming. I don't want to spend 1500$ on a laptop that is okay when I could get an awesome one for 1200$. Any ideas would be much appreciated: Websites, models, manufacturers etc. Any info is something i can look into. Thanks very much

So I have an Asus laptop and every time I restart the computer, when the computer boots up, the wi-fi drops. This isn't just my laptop. My roommate just got an Asus as well, different series a lil cheaper but a lil newer. My laptops only about a year or so old, but his does the same as well. When we boot up the wireless drops and seems to restart because if we wait long enough about 2 mins or so the wireless will come back up. BUT when someone comes over with any other computer like a mac or something it doesn't do it. They just can connect no problem. I'm not sure if its Asus or the wireless router we are using which is a Linksys N. Also it will just randomly drop, not as often but still annoying. If you could help that would be awesome. Thanks

A:Wireless drops with Asus laptops

Welcome to TSG:
Some things you could try.
Go to the Asus site,download any current adapter drivers.
Download current firmware for your router.
Disable encryption on your router.See if that helps.
Make sure that you only have 1 wireless manager active.Windows default or the adapter manager but not both.
What is the description of your wireless card from device manager ?
For the random drops,try changing the wireless channel.1/6/11 in US
Another thing to try.
Boot up in safe mode with networking.Any change ?

Hi everyone, I'm looking into one of these two laptops here on Amazon. I plan on using them for gaming as well as other things (school use, bits of encoding related stuff, etc) They have to be purchased via Amazon as I will be paying with a Store Card. Anyway, here they are:



MSI GX740-235US:

My dilemma is that one has an i7, and the other has an i5 with a better video card and higher resolution. I'm not sure if losing the 2 cores is worth the addition of the better video card.

If there's anything better on the site that I may have overlooked, please let me know. My budget is absolutely no more than $1200.

Thanks in advance

A:Trying to choose between two potential gaming laptops

OK so I'm trying to pick out a gaming laptop and I know very little about computers as I am just starting to get into playing online games. I'm going to be playing either Aion, WoW, or a FPS like CoD. My price range is $800 to $1100. I don't care about playing everything on the best settings I just don't want the computer to be really slow in populated areas or when I'm PvPing. I've read reviews on everything from gateway to asus then over to dell and basicly I have no idea whats really good and what is just ok for what you are paying for.


A:Which gaming laptops are worth the money?

you're not going to get a gaming laptop for $1100 - you'll get an all purpose business machine for that price.

Gaming laptops typically run in excess of $1800....

the best ones are around $4000 plus

I know both of them are not meant for gaming
But this is all I can afford
So plz tell me which of these laptops would be better for gaming

i3 7th gen
Nvidia Gforce 920MX gfx

Clock speed 2.4 GHz


i 3 6th gen
Amd radeon 520 gfx
8gb ram DDR4 expandable to 16gb
Clock 2 GHz

A:which of these laptops is better for gaming (poor edition)

You are right; neither one is designed nor intended for gaming. If you made me choose, I would go with the first choice. Do understand that when you use a part/component in a manner for which it was NOT designed, you are asking to have that part fail and/or be disappointed in the performance of said part/component.

hi to everyone. my asus laptop model is N53S and its been disconnecting the wifi connection about 3 month. i dont think the problem is from router because all other devices like android phones and laptops are connected and working properly. my laptop used to disconnect every time that it was hit or i moved it.but now it is disconnected randomly about 5 or 6 times a day even if i dont move it. when its disconnected sometimes the red cross or a yellow triangle appears on the wifi connection and windows functions so slowly and noises starts everytime i try to hear anything. i have tried re installing the wireless adapter in the device manager but it havent been fixed. do you think the wireless adapter should be replaced? what is its problem?

One thing I have tried and wondered how to do (as many other people I know) is to connect laptops with wireless capabilities together when there is no router and no internet. It seems like it would be simple, since you can transfer files, why can't you play, say, StarCraft 2-player with two laptops over their wireless cards?

Is there, say, a program that will let you set up a LAN-type connection from laptop to laptop. My friend and me want to play against eachother on some games on eachother's laptops, and we have a/b/g cards and Wi-Fi (I have bluetooth and N card but I don't know if he does). Oh, and of course, we both have a copy of each game. We're not trying to play with only one copy. This is just a matter of having two laptops with no internet or router.

Thanks for any info,

Have been having this problem for a while now.

Every so often, the headhphone jack on my laptop just stops working after hours and hours of the laptop being on.

The built-in speakers of the laptop work fine. What happens is that while the computer is in use (after some random amount of time), any hardware plugged into the headphone jack of the laptop will not playback sound. This includes headphones, speakers and the like. The sound device manager in control panel shows sound being output, and if the headphones/speakers are disconnected, the audio plays fine on the built-in speakers on the laptop.

I haven't been able to figure out what exactly causes this problem. I have tried resinstalling the driver several times. I am 100% sure it isn't the headphones of the speakers that I use as I use these speakers and headphones on many other devices (phone, tablet etc.)

The only way that this issue gets fixed is if the computer is shut down and then rebooted (a restart doesn't work, the computer has to literally lose power for the problem to be fixed).

It seems very intermittent and I'm not sure how to approach this problem

Any ideas?

A:Headphone Jack on Laptop Stops Working Until Laptop is Powered Off

One idea would be a look the power plan in use. If you are running with the default Balanced power plan you may be seeing that nterfere by conserving battery power temporarily turning the audio off being a constant drain. Another thought could be a result of the onboard audio chip itself getting too warm where the hardware protection circuit will then come in and deactivate all sound. That is usually seen as far as the cpu temp as well as other major components. The audio being onboard would also be monitored by the bios not so much by Windows.

The other possible cause of losing sound would be the headphone jack or the board end having a cold solder point getting warm and expanding just enough to break the connection until cooled off. The complete shutdown of power would tend to suggest a temp or regulation issue where either the power plan or temp monitoring would have to be watched. And one more thing would be setting the laptop on a fan cooled stand or effective notebook cooling pad to draw heat away from the unit if you are not already using one. Laptops are known to get quite warm with extended use since everything is packed into a tight space with the typical serious lack of air flow unlike the usual desktop with front, rear, and side or top case fans in use if not water cooled.

You have some things to consider in the list of things there. Increased overall cooling, not planning to use the laptop for extended periods of time which can allow for something to overheat i... Read more
