Tip & How-To about ASUS Eee PC 1000H Laptop

Get an EEEPC to start up when it won't power on.

A common problem with Atom based netbooks is with their power management hardware. This hardware allows the computer to be automatically overclocked / de-clocked when you plug it in or unplug it and when you manually change it. Sometimes, through use of third party software or otherwise, this will get set too high or too how, or just with a completely useless configuration, and won't be able to boot.

The simple fix to this is to unplug your laptop from the power supply, pull out the battery and press and hold the power button for ten seconds, then put the battery back in and try to turn it on. Hopefully this has solved your problem, and anybody who was using third party overclocking software on their EEE will now know better :).

i can't find my built in web cam on my start menu its like it is no longer in my computer, how can i find it?

First try to check if your system is detecting the hardware, go to Device Manager and check if there are installed drivers under "imaging devices". if none, check if there are yellow marks under unknown devices.

My Toshiba nb505 netbook run with the AC adapter, but will not run on the battery. The battery shows that it is charging but the charging percentage does not increase. Any advice?

I own the Toshiba NB505 netbook and the very same thing was happening to me. Here is what I did to fix my issue:
Step 1: Shut down the computer and remove the battery. Then turn it on but now with the battery out. It should say "battery not detected".
Step 2: Open control panel and open the "device manager". Under "batteries" (the first one), uninstall the one that says "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery". This is the battery driver.
(Don't worry. The computer will automatically re-install it)
Uninstall the driver and shut down the computer.
Then reinsert the battery and power on the computer. The driver should have re-installed itself. Check to see if the battery is now charging.
(It will take awhile for it to fully charge to 100% Best to shut it down and let it charge. The far left indicator light on the front of the Netbook will turn green when it is fully charged)
Hope this helps. Yeah I had to figure this one out on my own. Toshiba support staff over the phone were useless!
Good luck!!

i want to enhance my hp mini in order for me to be able to play pes 2010 and other games

Try setting the resolution and other settings of the games very low and it might work.
I wouldn't expect too much of the ability of a netbook to play games, seeing as the processor (Intel Atom) isn't very powerful.. Not to mention the graphic processor. The hardware just isn't powerful enough to play recent games.
