Asus X54C-RB92 Troubleshooting

This is the troubleshooting page for the Asus X54C-RB92.

Computer Dies Easily ¶ 

Computer powers down quickly after charging.

Faulty Battery ¶ 

If the computer turns off after disconnection of the adapter, the battery is most likely faulty. A reason for this may be due to the declined use of battery supporters. Despite the Li-on battery for the Asus computer, the battery is “self-discharge” and damages the battery memory.

To fix this:

Remove the Li-ion battery and directly use power supply to charge the laptop. Remove all portable external devices, such as USB, memory card, internet cable, HDMI, and CD-ROM. Then expand partition of hard drive or memory card.

Error in Device Manager ¶

Go to Start, enter Sound, and select Sound Control Panel from the list of results. On the Playback tab, right-click (or tap and hold) the Default Device and select Properties. On the Enhancements tab, select the Disable all enhancements check box and try to play your audio device. If that doesn't work, select Cancel and, on the Playback tab, select another default device (if you have one). Select the Disable all enhancements check box, and try to play audio again. Do this for each default device.
