Why won't my notebook shutdown while being charged?

  1. I'm using Windows 7 and a ASUS X54C Notebook.

    While my laptop is charged, no matter how I shutdown, whether it be on start command or closing the lid, the laptop refuses to shut all the way off, the power just stays on. I already set the options to shut it down whether the power is being charged or not when closing the lid.

    Try doing a factory restore, after backing up your important files

    I watched the video, but it turns out mines doesn't have the factory options. It says I need the CD to re-install and my notebook
    didn't come with one.

    Looks like it's a pretty nice laptop... If you don't see any recovery options when the laptop starts up, you can contact ASUS for help

    Yeah, I've been having a hard time finding the recovery options and I don't think there's any. I probably do need to talk with Asus about it.

    Honestly I don't think it's a much of a big deal, so I'll just let the laptop play it's course from here on out. But thanks for the help anyways guys.

    You might try another AC adapter... Just for test purposes
