Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
I got this laptop as a gift. Windows Vista Home Basic was already on it, there was no installation disk. After the laptop crashed and wouldn't let me back into windows I installed XP. Now I have no sound. I tried resetting to factory settings but it asks for a bios password, which I also do not have. HELP? I'd like to restore to factory settings, but simply having sound again would be satisfactory.

Connect the two computers using the Ethernet crossover cable.
On the computer running Windows Vista, from the Start menu, click Control Panel. Then, double-click Network and Sharing Center. Note: If this doesn't match what you see, switch yorur control panel to classic view..
At the top of the main portion of the Network and Sharing Center window, double-click the Unidentified Network icon.
If network discovery and file sharing are disabled, the following message will appear:
"Network discovery and file sharing are turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change..."
Click the message to enable network discovery and file sharing; you may be prompted for an administrator username and/or password.
In the dialog box that opens, select No, make the network that I am connected to a private network. This allows you to initiate file sharing on the two computers without affecting the settings for any other networks.
Icons for both computers should now be visible in the Network window. Double-click a computer icon to share printers and other resources.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your prompt response which has helped a lot. I still have some problems which I am submitting as comments to your reply. Thanks again"
Bottom line- You can't. Unlike other electrical equipment there is no magic "factory reset" button. You need at least an OS install disc and a back-up of the drivers. At one time the discs were supplied with PC's but this very rarely happens and the paperwork supplied normally advises you make your own back up discs before you get carried away, but it very rarely happens.
It may be worth looking at why you wish to restore to original, is it necessary?
