It's not the issue of what i choose for best performance or let windows choose or for best appearance.before it was all right & all options were just set as now.
But i don't know what went wrong...!

You might want to try the Power Saver option from this tutorial Power Plan - Select

I don't see in your 1st post where you said you tried power saver settings.

Do you have software that came preinstalled with your Asus laptop that's for the battery?

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to 3 times with a reboot after each scan.

or
Install Power 4 gear utility again and see.
