I was skeptical but this worked like a miracle. An old laptop but not ready to give up on it yet, I'm realieved there was a safety feature which worked. Thank you so much for posting.


I forgot to say it's an Asus UL50VT.


Worked perfect with ASUS R510C 25/06/2018. Thanks for the tip, I kinda remember this was the solution back in the day , still works today.
