Windows 8 wirelss connectvity issue. HELP!

by thewalruschild / November 19, 2013 9:46 AM PST

I bought a asus x4014 and from the first day started experiencing wireless connectivity issues. On the first day I connected to a friends wireless network, it worked fine until I let the power die. When I turned the laptop back on, the wireless wouldn't connect "Can't connect to this network" my phone was working fine with the wireless. I tried changing the power saving setting of the wireless adaptor ectr. Later when I went to another friends home, the same thing happened but it resolved itself. It worked fine for a good 3 weeks now it will not connect to my home network via wifi, I resorted to a full system restore. nothing. nada. I'm currently connected via Ethernet. I am at my wits end. Please help. I have tried everything I can think of.

And it was doing very odd things till he removed the supplied antivirus. It seems to want to shield us from too much. No power settings or anything else was changed so let's hope you can put it all back to stock.

If not, just call it in and let them fix it.

No such trouble here.

In reply to: Nope.

We have at the office over a dozen Win8 laptops and a few Asus so to make a claim it's W8 is a little bit of a stretch. Since it's new, just restore it to the factory load and don't take candy from strangers or drivers from Microsoft.

Take it back for another fast before you have to deal with the maker's repair system.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
