Easiest fastest way is to enter BIOS – restart and press ESC and then diable internal pointer, forget disabling drivers etc it doesn’t work, well for me
So much easier this way and easy to reverese if required by simply doing it all again but re-enable it.

Asus S300 has been great since I upgraded the HDD to SSD but the trackpad went mental so wireless mouse is back in action.
2.38am on Sunday morning and as always I’ve got a tech issue in my head, this time its HDD and how slow its been transferring files from my sd cards to hdd and then making movies with Windows movie maker and then saving them.
If you watch any youtube videos it looks like if you running max ram in your notebook SSD is the next best upgrade especially for large file transfers BUT what do you buy ?? go here for reviews US site but offers good info
The asus looks easy to work on with just the back panel to come off and no major issues with unplugging etc good work ASUS !!!!!

Purchased the 5ghz dongle RaLink RT5572 did the job till I swopped it out for my old internal wifi card found in the loft, always keep your old tech for a bit 🙂
Next project is seeing if I can get it to work on the my new android tv box
My new virgin broadband service started 11th March and having bought the 100mbs service I’m running around 58mbs at present, so I as always I’m trying to grab every last mb from the service, £33.50 a month.
Virgin tell me that I can get the full 152mb service yet I can’t even get 100 so I’m starting to dig into WHY ! today infact as I type I’m digging STAY TUNED !
*** HERE’S THE ANSWER AND ITS BAD NEWS ON 5GHZ ***
The WLAN adapter of the S300CA comes from Qualcomm/Atheros (Model AR9485) and belongs to the entry-level category. Only the usual radio standards are supported (802.11b/g/n) and it doesn’t come with the latest high speed version 802.11ac or support for networks in the 5 GHz band. In a short test, we were able to establish a stable connection with excellent reception and a data transfer rate of 150 Mbit/s over a distance of 5 meters and through a wall – a sign that the metal case doesn’t impact negatively on the WLAN reception
So the next option is a 5ghz dongle from ebay around £8 a worthwhile investment as my nexus 5 is running 100mbs and the mipad is 72mbs so the 1 year old laptop is outdated with a POOR WIFI CARD well not poor just not the best option available. #SpeedUp #KeepUp
