Now we're getting somewhere. They also may not be your fault, either. They could be from bad or missing drivers, hardware issues, etc.

My suggestion is this. Make a numbered list with each problem you mentioned, and give as much detail as you can. Then we'll go from there and try to get each one resolved.

You mentioned CD/DVD Autoplay - Start>Default Programs>Change AutoPlay Settings will take of that one.

Ok when I power up I get the Express gate w/ 6 choices-- F1 does not do anything.

Plz keep in mind that this is my first new laptop- and that I cannot go on-line until I buy a external modem- which are hard to find in stores theses days- I have tried.

The Start is not there-- no desk top either- just the Gate

ah Express Gate

this is an alternate OS that comes with Asus Laptops

For the most part nowadays it is useless. It was designed as a quick way to access things, but computers are much faster now.

There should be a button to exit to OS

That will take you into windows

On this ASUS there seems to be two power up buttons one on each side at the top rt and left. With Gate on the screen when I press the one on the right it just shuts down.

Ok found that -now resuming windows - there is an ADmin box in center 'logged on' what next plz--(sorry again for rant--my bad fellers!)


when I click on that i get "your account has been disabled. Please seeyr system admin"

Also, express gate can be uninstalled from within Windows by going to the Control Panel

Follow this tutorial when you want to uninstall it:

Oh sorry. Not a physical button

an icon in Express gate on the screen

There should be one that says Exit or Exit to OS

The Gate? That's not something I'm aware of.


Is it something similar to Dell's Dock?
