Asus eee pc 4g error message grub rescue

This would imply a Linux distro.. What are you attempting to do, exactly? The error occurs when you install Linux and then it is removed;(sometimes incompletely other time when you remove the partition from the Windows Disk Manager). If you want to retain Linux, just put the disk/flash drive for it back in and finish the installation or boot to the recovery. If you only want a Windows system, follow the steps:
  1. You'll need a disc for the version of Windows on your hard disk drive. Place it in and select for whatever will bring you to your advanced options. (This is so you can get to your recovery command prompt).
  2. Instead of Restoring from Disk Image or whatever other standard choices you have, you'll want the command prompt.
  3. Using the following commands will restore the Windows Partition, if it's on there still.
    1. bootrec.exe /fixboot
    2. bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    3. bootrec.exe /ScanOS
    4. bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd
  4. Once you reboot afterwards, it should restore your Windows system if it didn't get removed during the Linux installation.
Hopefully this helps, if not; I'll need more information as to how it happened.

OS Hard drive missing

Using Recovery Partition
The Recovery Partition quickly restores your Notebook PC's software to its original working state. Before using the Recovery Partition, copy your data files (such as Outlook PST files) to USB storage devices or to a network drive and make note of any customized configuration settings (such as network settings).

About the Recovery Partition
The Recovery Partition is a reserved space on your hard disk drive used to restore the operating system, drivers, and utilities installed on your Notebook PC at the factory.

This computer is old. Can I help it run better?

If you bring it back to factory settings yes it will run faster. The only way to do that is to use the disk the computer came with to bring it back to factory settings

I need to restart the netbook to go back to factory settings

You will need the following items:

1. External USB DvD Drive; Can be purchased from local retailer
2. Your Asus Eee PC Restore Disk; This should have come with your netbook. You can order an additional disk by calling Asus, 888- 678-3688.

3. Once you have the above items be sure all your photos, music, documents, data etc. are backed up to a flash drive or dvd. A factory restore of an Asus netbook will ERASE all personal data on the hard drive. You must back up the data on another device in order to preserve it!

4. Connect the external DvD drive to your netbook and insert the Asus Eee PC Restore Disk.

5. Restart the netbook and boot from CD (usually the default key to boot from CD is F12).

6. Follow the onscreen instructions that are on the restore disk.

7. After installation of all software, update windows and reinstall all your necessary software.

8. Enjoy!

How can i bring asus G71G back to factory after i wiped the disk

Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

You will need to order the restore disks from the manufacturer. They usualy charge around $30.00 (US) plus shipping.

These are always great to have "just in case" you need them in the future. You can call the Asus support or visit them on the web.

How to reformat asus eee pc

Normally laptops come with a restore disk(s). Simply put the disk in the drive, restart the pc and boot the pc to the disk.

If it won't say (boot to disk) automatically, simply press F2 when you turn on the computer till the BIOS loads up. Then change the boot order to CD drive first.

Once it boots to the cd the process will run automatically.

If this solution has helped you, please take the time to rate me.

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?

I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.
