    Power indicator

    Hey guys I currently have an electrical problem in my house that causes the electricity to go out every few minutes for a few seconds. My asus g71g always slows down and slightly freezes for a sec, then the power supply logo and text saying Battery Mode shows up. I was wondering if there is a way I can disengage this option. thanks!

    You can remove the battery and just use the power adapter. But then when the power goes off, you lose your work and likely corrupt your files. If I were you, I'd WANT the battery backup.

    In fact, I'd would limit my laptop use in an environment with such an unstable power supply. You're just askin' for trouble!

    would assume Power 4 Gear is saying that message? if so remove power4gear and use windows power settings..... but with your current environment you might want to avoid use

    Weird just found out that it was my power supply and not the outlet. Either that or it is my computer. Anyone had a problem like this before?

    Check your power supply first, to either peg it or eliminate it as the problem. Grab a multimeter (if you don't have one, go to a place like The Source or an electronics shop and get one: they're cheap and come in handy), set to DC Volts, plug in your computer's adaptor and touch the meter's probes to the end, one inside the cylindrical plug (that goes into your computer) and the other to the outside of it. Should read the voltage that your supply is rated for (look on the sticker on your supply) and the voltage should be steady and unchanging. If it does then unfortunately the problem is more likely with your computer.
    Just for assurance set the meter to AC Volts and stick the probes into the outlet on your wall. Again should read a steady RMS voltage of 110V (+/- few), and this should not change either with time.

    Oh, and does the power LED on the power supply stay on and constant even when the power to the laptop seems to be down?
