Hi, I recently adquired a laptop ASUS E402S and I decided to install Fedora in it. Fedora runs very well but I have many issues:

  • Touchpad deactivates itself every so often, so I have to reboot
  • Network disconnects and I have to turn off and on again to solve
  • When I try to turn off or reboot it goes normal until screen keeps black and never shutdown.
  • (This last isn't very important) When I connect a display by the HDMI input, screens not shown correctly, except in screen mirroring.

If someone knows how to solve any of these, especially the touchpad, I would appreciate your help.

When I type lspci this is the output:

Touchpad there should be something related to your touch pad in your syslog. Try searching for touch or input in journalctl -b -1, which shows logs from last boot (-1).

Network: does lsmod list a module named rtl8723be ? This driver should work for your wireless network adapter. Does the disconnect happen on every network you are connected to or just on special ones? If it happens on every network, you might want to report a bug at . Also have a look into the journal here.

Shutdown: Looks like an ACPI issue to me. Can you find anything related to ACPI or power in journalctl?

HDMI: You have to be more specific on that if you want to get help.
