I have just bought an Asus K55V. I have removed the Optical drive and replaced it with a caddy and a second 2.5inch Sata HDD.
I re installed windows 7 64 Bit on the main SSD and installed all the drivers.
The problem is when i come to Shutdown, Restart or Sleep the laptop starts shutting down and the screen goes black and the everything appears to power down except the laptop still stays powered on. The white LED is still lit next to the power button and i physically need to hold the power button in for 10 seconds to get it to manually turn off before i can turn it back on again.
Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong. I did some research and though its maybe because the second HDD was a master as well but SATA drives down have a MASTER and SLAVE does it? And i cant seem to find any options in bios which can be changed to sort this out.
Thanks for your time and help!
1. Start up windows, hit the start button on your keyboard, click on search.
2. Next type control panel
, once you did that change the view of your appearence to small icons.
3.Now locate a tool called power management
, click it and see what you got.
For a laptop netbook or even portable devices such as tablets.
I choose my power plan to turn off the "display" after 10 minutes.
I disable sleep because some laptops or netbooks are kinda hard to get out of that mode at times.
4.I need you to disable hibernation if windows enabled that by default for your laptop.
5. Next I want you to choose in windows power management when you close the lid to keep it on.
That way it will prevent any mishaps of improper shut downs and lead windows to not start up correctly.
If your on the go, you can choose, when you close your lid have it power down to hibernate.
Click one key on the laptop and it will come back from you left off at.
Lastly for your drives, check the bios again and check your drives there.
If both show up, have your main ssd/hdd be your main boot.
The optical drive always comes second and lastly boot off any fat32 formatted usb drives.
