Asus Reports First Ever Quarter Loss

The struggling global economy continues to hurt the computer industry as people find themselves less wanting of expensive computers.  For the first time ever, component manufacturer Asus has posted a quarterly loss to the tune of just over $100 million.  However, unlike some of the big names, such as AMD, who have resorted to layoffs, Asus has chosen to weather this storm with a more noble method.  Until things are back to normal, all Asus executives above the level of vice president will take a 30% pay cut.  That's not all.  Members of the board of directors will be taking a massive compensation reduction of 60%.

Asus, for taking such a commendable action in these hard times, I salute you.

I was at uni now i'm on my laptop.

It's something to do with drivers cause it works in safe mode just not in normal mode

Sorry didn't see the safe mode bit, was on a sly because at college (BANNN)!!

Try removing the controller from Device Manager within Windows, NOT SAFE MODE.

Vista crashing every 2mins didnt help :(

Well sadly I jumped the gun a bit, it still doesnt fully work.

any ideas?

I see this a lot on vista in work, one thing you could try is:

right click on the local area connection
internet protocol ipv4 > properties
assign a valid ip and default gateway
leave subnet mask blank (will fill in itself)
assign your ISPs DNS servers (if using a modem router with no dns settings in)
disable and re-enable the connection

Also for good measure go into internet options > connections > lan settings and untick automatically detect settings (and anything else ticked that you have not assigned yourself)

I always find that renewing the connection helps.
In the run bar type CMD
then ipconfig/release

That normally solves my problems.

I think it may be Vista's problem coping with IPv4 & IPv6?

Any solution to that?

Hi Sleekit
Dont know if you have solved your problem yet but it sounds like you have the dreaded apple bonjour software installed on your system. This software installs its own default gateway which windows will then more often than not use instead of your routers ip address, the result no internet. Try running ipconfig from the command prompt when you have no internet, if this is your problem your default gateway will be another tell tale sign is uninstalling your network adapter then re-installing will make your internet work again. Obviously this is installed with some Apple software but also with some Adobe software too. I have had this problem myself drove me crazy removed bonjour and have had no more problems so I was glad to say au revoir to bonjour :) Have a look here for more info http://www.techsuppo...sresponder-exe/

TO connection you have to change your personal ip address or getway link. Alternate you have to turn off your for modem for system matching live junctions.
