Preferred Solution: HELP! need to turn touch screen off asus vivobook

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi!

I have a problem with the clickpad. I installed the driver and I get this message: This device is not present, is not working properly or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24) (Device Manager). I have also updated Asus PS/2 Port clickpad, but it still not working. Could you please help me with this?

I have an Asus VivoBook S400CA that I was thinking about selling. I got it for Christmas. It has never had a virus, and it's in perfect condition. Everything works great. I'm going to sell it with a stylus I got for it, along with the charger. I'm selling it because it's not the laptop for me.

Does anyone know how much I could get for it?

I might also include a detached CD-drive I got from Best Buy... I think it was like, 60 bucks. I've used it once or twice, and I won't be needing it when I get rid of this laptop.
 

A:Appraisal - Asus VivoBook S400CA

Depends highly on what specs it has. CNET says the price range is $695 - $1142.

Considering this laptop is used, has 6mths warranty left, and isn't factory defaulted (I highly recommend doing this, we can help), I'd be looking at $550 - $950 max as a private sale.

This actually isn't directly Windows 10 related since it also affected Windows 8 and 8.1.

A couple years back I swapped out the mechanical drive in this notebook for an SSD. Device Manager shows a lot of unknown devices that have no drivers, even after I installed as many of the drivers as I could find on ASUS's website. Does anyone know if there is a bundled collection of drivers somewhere for this model so I have everything originally bundled with this system?

Have the same system with all the drivers, the total size is about 4 gig. Will pack them up and put them on OneDrive for you to get. Will let you know when they are there. Send me your email address for the invite.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this and if there is already a solution posted somewhere, but I've been reading threads on many forums for 2 days and trying to solve this but nothing has worked yet.

I just bought an ASUS VivoBook S551LB laptop which comes with Windows 8. It has a 1TB harddrive and an extra 24GB SSD which is used for cache i guess. I wanted to reinstall Windows 8 because I didn't want to use the OEM version. Doing that took enough work. But after reinstalling i decided to check if the cache drive was still working. The Disk Management interface showed that the SSD was empty when previously it was completely full, so I guessed that the cache needed to be set up again.

I installed everything from my laptop's driver page and ran windows update until there were no more updates left. I looked in every ASUS and Intel application installed on the computer for options regarding the cache drive but there was nothing. The Condusiv ExpressCache program had no gui and the command line didnt help, and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology program wasn't showing most of the options which other people have. I read lots of threads and everything seemed to point to the need for RAID. I tried the registry edits, BIOS options (and with safe boot), and looking for RAID drivers for my laptop. The BIOS only has the option for AHCI, and there are no RAID drivers that I can find for my laptop. I installed different versions of the IRST program, tried deleting the SSD volume,... Read more

Hello please help me! I recently restarted my Asus vive book because it wasn't connecting to the Internet in this cafe. It was working perfectly fine and I was expecting it to come right back on. However all that I got was the Asus startup logo with the loading animation at the bottom. After like 5 minutes of this it eventually showed me the blue screen stating that my laptop couldn't come on and it was going to try to diagnose itself. After like 10 minutes it stated that it couldn't even repair itself. Idk what to do and would greatly appreciate some help or insight!

After reset, the SSD is offline and unallocated. Though, I have made it online in GPT disk, it is still unallocated. How can I utilize the SSD back to its previous condition?

Hello,

Just bought a new laptop, ASUS VivoBook S551LB. The guy told me that everything is fixed, battery non-removable, graphics card can't be changed i.e upgraded, the same goes to RAM. Everything on the shop is fixed so I decided to buy this one since it is affordable and can sustain enough performance to be used in gaming.

My question is how do I take care of the battery ? At the moment I'm plugging in the whole day but it says 99% available (plugged in, not charging) so I think it is kinda safe to be plugged in rather than keep charging until 100% and discharging it and use it and charging again, repeating the sequence.

What do you think? Can it be harmful ?

A:ASUS VivoBook Non-removable battery question

safe yes ,but,what I think is all battery's of this type are meant to be charged and discharged, for loner life of the battery

Until recently my laptop, an Asus Vivobook with an i5-processor, touchscreen and a 500 gig harddisk, worked just fine, no problems whatsoever. But when I started playing GuildWars 2 it developped a nervous 'tick'. Let me explain: of course the battery of my laptop doesn't last forever, so sometimes I have to plug it in while playing GW, and as soon as I do that the screen starts to black out randomly, as bad as sometimes every 3 seconds. It turns itself on again, and there's no loss of performance (at least not a noticeable one). It gets worse: when I stop playing it continues to flicker on and off. I know that it's not a heat problem, at least I don't think so. SpeedFan detects temperatures up to 67 degrees while playing, but that's it, my laptop should be able to handle that.

Can anyone help me?
 

A:Laptop problem Asus Vivobook Q301LA

...ok, here's an addendum to my post: at the moment the screen goes blank every time I plug in the charger, and the core temperature is around 51, 52 degrees, so in my humble opinion it's definitely not a heat issue.

Hello,

I am new to this forum, so please bear with me if I ask some noob questions.

I have a problem with my ASUS Vivobook S550CM. It takes to boot for a very long time (literally more than 5 minutes). But once I get inside windows 10 (I just upgraded last year) everything seems to be close to normal or a little laggy but still useable.

details:

Asus laptop comes with core i5, 6GB RAM, 2gb Nvidia dedicated graphics, 750GB HDD + 24GB SSD cache (Kingston SMSM150S3/24G)


I was able to diagnose and come to conclude that the problem lies in the 24GB SSD cache. When I tried to recover it back to Win 8 (original pre-installed OS) it can no longer see the recovery partition. Upon checking with utility software (belarc) I found out that the 24gb SSD cache disk already FAILED under SMART.

So i believe this is the culprit and immediately i searched online for 24GB SSD Kingston replacement and only found a used working item on ebay Kingston 24 GB SSD Laptop Solid State Drive SMSM150S3 24g | eBay

Now, my question is. When i get the item from ebay and install it on my ASUS laptop, Do i need to do something with the replacement 24GB SSD or i just swap it directly with the old defective SSD (by the way they have exactly the same brand and model).


Please advice as i have no idea on what to do.. I read somewhere that there has to be a set-up for IRST and etc... but i have little knowledge about it.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Bleeping Computer. You've helped me effectively in the past and I come to you again in this time of need!
 
Last week I replaced my fried HP laptop with something new: an ASUS Windows 8 Ultrabook with a touchscreen (S500CA). After starting the machine and setting up Windows 8, I downloaded Firefox and noticed that it was running a little choppy. Shortly after I was prompted to install 80-something important updates for Windows. I tried to, but as the bar moved along to indicate progress the percentage of the procedure that was completed never changed from 0%.
 
I was then informed that Windows had encountered a problem and had to shut down. When it restarted, the opening ASUS screen read something like "attempting to repair" and remained that way for a while. Once it finished it said nothing could be done and gave me the options to troubleshoot (i.e. do the same thing again) or shut the notebook down.
 
After checking online to see if I could enter Windows 8 in safe mode, I read something about pressing F9 after booting to bring up some new options. I chose "Refresh" from those options and my apps were removed but my files preserved. Everything once again became accessible and I've been using the notebook for about 24 hours since without any problems. Firefox is even much smoother than before.
 
Now here's my dilemma: I'm once again being prompted to install 83 important updates from Windows. I have iTunes and Microsoft Word and all my things already... Read more

Try installing the updates in small batches, say 5 or 6 at a time, then if you do get a failure you should be able to go back to a previous restore point instead of having to refresh.

Hi there!
I just got my new Asus Vivobook s400ca running Win8.1, a few weeks ago.
It really runs great, although I managed to find one problem. Since this is a laptop without a detachable screen,
I didn't really find any good reason for having the touch keyboard toolbar () in my task bar, since I was pretty sure I'd never need it. So I disabled the keyboard, which worked out fine but the toolbar was still there.

I then went on to try to remove it by using one of EightForum's .reg files for that purpose.

This did, as described, remove the toolbar, but apparantly it stopped the mouse pad driver as well, even though the mouse pad itself basically works. (no gestures or scrolling though.)

As you can see here, There's no driver running.


And in the ASUS hub, it's also impossible to turn it on. It just keeps saying it's off.

So I decided to use another .reg file that I found with the initial one, that should basically just rollback the effect that the other one had, but to no avail.

It just made the toolbar come back.
So I don't really know where to go from here. Any suggestions?
Also, if there is anyone who knows what to do about that toolbar, please do tell! [:

Thanks in advance! [:

Hey guys,
I am very frustrated I really hope you can help me.

I have an ASUS Vivobook S550CB (Intel Core i7-3537u processor, 8Gb of Ram, 750Gb + 24Gb SSD hard drive) Windows 8 pre-installed. It used to boot/load Windows 8 and be ready to use it in 9-10 seconds. I updated to Windows 8.1 from Windows Store and everything was still perfect for the following 12-13 months.

Pushed the button, 2-3 secs ASUS logo, 2-3 secs Windows Logo and on the remaining seconds was loading the operating system
Now all of a sudden, after getting a message about a hard disk error/failure :
Push the button, 2-3 secs ASUS logo and then I see the "loading circle" under the logo "loading" for 4-5 minutes!! and after that loads the operating system just fine.

I checked the hard disks ( C: for the operating system, D: for the rest of my stuff, it was bought like this, with 2 partitions) with two ways:
1) Right Click -> Properties -> Tools -> Error Checking. Then "optimize and defragment "
2) I used the program Hard Disk Sentinel
Both ways showed no problem

So, having no clue about what happened I decided to reset my PC. I did that so I got the PC just like when I bought it... But with the problem still there! Updated again to Windows 8.1 and still there....

So now after all of this trouble I don't know how to fix the problem.

A:Slow start up / boot of Windows 8.1, ASUS Vivobook S550CB

You mention, "hard disk/failure," but does that mean you've actually had a warning of a failure with the hard disk? I'm asking because if that's the case, then it's pretty obvious what's probably happened: you'll have probably had a hard disk failure. In this unfortunately event, backup your files and take the laptop back to the shop from whence it came, so they can replace the HDD free of charge. (assuming it's within the ream of possibility) If this is a no-go, you'll have to brave it yourself, or get someone else to do it.

But...

In the event that you can't do all that, and it is the HDD, then it's maybe possible to "workaround" this issue (not recommended due to possible, nigh-on-likely data loss) by flagging the bad sectors on the disk, but Scandisk should have done that really, unless you didn't do a thorough check; the one that takes an eternity.

Check the S.M.A.R.T status too, which you can do by downloading and running this tool: HDD Health failure prediction for hard drives and ssd drives (scan before running)

Good luck.

I have an ASUS tablet that I don't know the model nor is it listed anywhere on the tablet. it originally had a detachable keyboard but the guy that gave it to me didn't have it. according to device manager, it has a generic touch screen driver. I have frequent unresponsiveness and sporadic automatic touches a with the touch screen, and I think it may be due to the generic touch screen drivers. If I had the ASUS one, I think it would work better. Device manager reports the hardware ID as: HID\VEN_ATML&DEV_1000&Col01 but no search engine can find it. Google had only two pages of results, all of which were dodgy. Many others like Yahoo only had one page of results of the same dodgy or other dodgy results. I was wondering if you can lead me to the right one. You have been so helpful with finding me drivers before so I am sure it would be no problem.

Hi
I've got a z20t-B-107. Lovely machine, upgraded to win 10, all working fine - I had to download a new Wacom driver to get the 'left-click' to work with the pen.

I'm using it in tablet mode to digitise some data points on a map, and to sketch with the pen. However, when I rest my hand on the screen it 'activates' the touch screen and makes things go crazy. I really need to be able to temporarily switch off the touch digitiser and have only the Wacom digitiser running, and if I can toggle it on/off somehow that would be useful. Otherwise i need to use the pen in a very unnatural position to avoid touching the screen with my hand.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note which uses the Wacom type digitiser - it doesn't seem to suffer from this, as soon as it detects the pen near the screen it appear to switch off the touch part.

I would be grateful for any help - I've tried search engines but they only seem to give results about touch pads, and that's completely different...

Many thanks in advance

A:Portege Z20t - can I turn touch screen OFF?

Hi,

I use a Z20t too (but with Win8.1) and have the same problem. I have decided to switch off the touch complete. It is not a good solution, but a good working with OneNote is only with switching off the touch functionality possible.
Maybe this is a possible solution for you.
In Win8.1 I switched off the driver in the device manager.

I found the following steps here:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d55591d?auth=1

1. Right-click and select "All Apps" at the lower right corner, then select Control Panel
2. Select Hardware and Sound
3. Select Device Manager
4. Select Human Interface Devices
5. From the list, look for the driver for the touch screen. This can be tricky since on my tablet they are all listed as "USB Input Device" and there are 3 of them. I found it by disabling and re-enabling one at a time until the touch screen stopped responding. You can also identify the touch screen by checking the Properties | Details and get the "Hardware Ids" then do a search online to see what the device is. In my case, the touch screen has the ID USB/VID_0EEF&PID_7302.
6. Once you know which is the touch screen, disable the driver and the touch screen should no longer work
Enable this device to make the touch screen work again.

A:How to turn off touch screen on Qosmio DX730?

Hi

Did you find out how to do that?
I think it?s not possible to disable the touch screen.
Did not find any info in user manual?. Maybe you can check the available BIOS settings. Power up the unit and press F2 to access the BIOS.
But to be honest I doubt that an on/off option would be available there.

Hello,

I tried searching this and found people with similar problems, but no clear solution. My netbook screen stopped working over the weekend. I'm actually writing this right now on the netbook connected to an external monitor. It came with Windows XP but I upgraded to Windows 7 a few months ago (whenever the RC trial version ran out.)

I don't think I did any Windows Updates or software installs prior to this problem (possibly microsoft security essentials update.) The screen appears to be lighting, but completely black. I checked in the device manager and it claims the generic plug and play monitor that represents the built in screen is operating just fine. I've used the function keys to try to disable and enable the screen, and while connected to the external monitor I've changed resolutions, as well as the behavior between the screens (duplicate, extend, etc) all to no avail. I'm pretty stumped here as to how this happened or what can be done.

It turns on but the screen doesnt. The backlight is not broken because when it does turn on (randomly) everything works. Pushing down on the screen works but only as long as I'm holding it really. So I've come to the conclusion that the lcd cable has loosened somehow or there is a problem with the program that starts the computer. I've only had the laptop for about 4 months and the problems started about 1 month after buying it.
And when it does turn on it randomly freezes I have no clue why I'm no computer expert and I've only built a single computer.

I have already ran defrag and c disk cleanup, ran Norton and turned off unnecessary programs. The vents are not obstructed and I've already done what I think is a hard reset. Removing the battery, holding the power button for 45 seconds and then putting everything back together.

I'm about to throw the thing out the window and I cannot afford any parts to replace or take it to any computer repair shop. I only make about 150 a week.

I have a hp pavilion touchsmart 15-n029so. Unfortunately my touch screen is defect, so 5-6 points on the screen is constant active. Until recently I managed to disable the driver for only the touch driver (not the screen) through device manager, but then a lately update for windows 10 activated the driver again. So now the 5-6 points is constant active, and I cannot login because the screen will not focus on the login field.  This means I cannot login to windows 10. I have also tried to start safe mode (turning off computer repeatly, so it starts up in safe mode), but here the touch screen driver is also active.  How can I disable the touch screen driver without login into windows 10?

My Ideapad S415 touch screen has suddenly stopped working.  I've had a tech connect to my PC and try a BIOS reload of default settings, plus unistalling all "HID" devices in Device Manager with no resolution.  I've also tried a system restore with no luck. The system properties does see the touch capability. Suggestions? Thanks.

hi Hersh,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
First do a Power Drain 
     (If the battery is removable)
            Remove AC and Battery and hold the power button down for 15 sec.
               Turn the computer back on and see if the Touch capability is now detected under System Properties,
                  If not
         I suggest you contact Lenovo Technical Team about the Issue as this may be a device detection issue.
       Lenovo Technical Team
 
Regards

My laptop automatically updated in Sept./Oct. It took about an hour and had multiple restarts, so I am assuming it was a Windows 10 update. I am not 100% sure though.

My Lenovo U410 Touch recently got damaged - the hinge broke causing the touch screen to **bleep**.I was told that a repair was not feasible as none of the repair shops near me were able to source the parts needed.I therefore bought a new laptop. However, there is a lot of data on the old laptop that I want to access, including sorting out the licensing of MS Office (by uninstalling from the old one).I cannot do anything about it as the old machine is completely unusable as due to the touch screen being cracked, it seems to think it is constantly being touched in multiple places on the screen. This means that I cannot access the laptop to copy the data or uninstall Office. Anyone know any way around this that doesn't involve taking it to a repair shop to "recover" my data. Cheers

Yesterday I was on my laptop and before I shut it down it went into what looked like a different mode. I booted it up this morning and it is still in this mode. It looks like touch screen mode but I do not have a touch screen.  The icons on the task bar are spaced out and there is a back button on the task bar too which is not normally there. When i right click against the task bar, one of the buttons says "Show touch keyboard button".  All of my files are spead out as if to have room for touching if I had a touch screen but I do not. I am finding this very annoying because I cannot get onto my desktop properly and is not in the right mode. Please help!

Hello, My Thinkpad Yoga is connected to a large display through ThenkPad docking station.  Its lid is closed.   During my work, from time to time I see random touch clicks on my screen, and random opening of menus.  It is clear that the touch screen is active although the lid is closed.  When I open the lid, and still connected just to the 2nd display (large screen) display the phenomena stops.  Worth noting is that although only the 2nd display shows an image, the laptop touch screen is still sensetive to touch.  This is I guess why the random touches show up on the screen -- it feels the keyboard not fingers. I expect the touch screen to be disabled while the lid is closed or when projecting only to the 2nd screen.  The solution of opening the lid while connected to the docking station is not acceptable.  Lenovo's local support suggestion to disable touch for the Yoga is also not acceptable -- people purchase Yoga to get Touch.   A solution please! Yaron
