Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook

Number issues on screen

Hi

I have a eee PC G surf/Linux and the keyboard is suddenly acting a little strange. When I hit the 1 key its displays on the screen 21, and then I hit the number 3 key and it displays 43 and most number keys are acting like this.

Plus the backspace key is not working.

Can anyone help?

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

Asus 1005ha down arrow suddenly began toggling full screen


Try this:
Go to your computers manufactor and download the systems frimware drives (BIOS,Motherboad, etc). look to see if they have any drivers for the keyboard. This could be the result of corrupted drivers gone heywire.

Good luck!

Keyboard unresponsive only 5's on screen


Sounds like your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus. Try booting into safe mode and see if the keyboard acts the same way. Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal. If it is ok in safe mode then run your virus scan.

Keyboard mapping


Your numlock is turned on. There is more than one way to turn it off.Find a USB keyboard, and plug it in. Then push the numlock key on the USB keyboard to turn it off.OR, if you don't have access to one of those, hold down the fn key (lower left hand corner of the keyboard) and press the key with numlock or number lock written on or near it.

Hi there, My Eee 4g pc 8.9 with Linux does not start up anymore. The power is there but the screen just flashes with odd graphics after "starting system" appears on the screen. I can not enter...


The BIOS are separate from the operating system. After a control/alt/delete you should be able to get a new fresh start up whereby hitting the Del key or F Keys above (10 or 12 usually) you should get to the BIOS Setup pages. If need to make changes to the computer, do so there. If you cannot bring up the Operating System, you may be required to put the OS Disk into the CD/DVD drive and restart the computer hoping the CD drive is recognized and go from there. If Linux fails, you will need Windows 10 operating system.

Where is the "tm" symbol


There is no "tm" symbol key on a keyboard, you need to enter an ALT key to type the trademark symbol.
Hold down the "ALT" key while typing 0153 and it will enter this: ™ when you release the ALT key

I have an ASUS netbook that runs linux. I don't know linux, but was told to upgrade to ubuntu. I don't know how. Anyone know how?


1. I would suggest finding out which model Eee PC you are using and the hard drive size & type (4GB SSD, 160GB SATA, etc...). If you have less than 4GB, I would probably recommend using another Linux distro, as the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu is pretty heavy.

2. Next, I would probably suggest plugging in the Eee PC (Software/OS installation is very power intensive).

3. Download your distribution (Ubuntu Netbook Edition or Desktop, etc).

4. Download a copy of unetbootin for your PC (unetbootin.sourceforge.net -- There are Linux & Windows versions available.)

5. Using a USB thumb drive (USB Memory stick), you will want to wipe the drive (format using FAT/FAT32 filesystem).

6. Run Unetbootin, selecting the proper USB thumb drive & ISO image from the Ubuntu website.

7. After Unetbootin is finished, close it and safely disconnect the USB drive.

8. Next, plug the USB thumb drive into the Eee PC.

9. Turn on power to the Eee PC & after seeing the initial BIOS splash, hit the ESC key on the keyboard. This should bring up a boot selection screen. Using the arrow keys, select the appropriate USB drive and hit Enter (Return).

10. If all goes well, you should be running Ubuntu Desktop/Ubuntu Netbook Edition as a live desktop. (The installer is a link on the desktop.)

11. There are several step-by-step guides out there, so check them out, if needed. The installer should be very simple on this type of hardware, etc.

Good Luck!

Hi, Linux is a free distributable operating system. You can download and burn it on disk like Ubuntu. You can go ahead and install the OS on your computer once again. The installation of Linux is very easy and you can go through the wizard and complete it.

Same thing here


There is nothing you can do with stuck key/s, the keyboard needs to be replaced.
Replacement keyboards are available from stores on the Internet (not very expensive), I purchased keyboards from Yall Store WEB site - use this link :-

Must be common problem. Linux is the operating system

yes you just lost linux, it needs re-doing but with an external CD ROM drive unless it has a partition
for recovery in which either F10 key will do it or another key check the manual for RECOVERY of operating system its not a big problme but it takes few hours to solve
