I had the exact same problem, what helped me out was restoring to factory settings.. When turning it on, press f9 repeatedly right away until a screen pops up with 3 options. choose the option "restore factory settings" or whatever its called and then type in yes. This is restore your eepc to the way it was when you first bought it. It will erase all your personal data, and changes, but it will give you your desktop back!!

How if my Asus Eee PC 1215P there is no bluetooth but i want have it?


Asus manufactures computers, notebooks, motherboards and other PC components. Some of their machines have Bluetooth capability. You can use prompts in Windows to make sure that your Asus's Bluetooth capability is up and running.

Open Bluetooth Settings
In the task bar, right-click the Bluetooth symbol, then select "Open Bluetooth Settings." If there is no Bluetooth icon in the task bar, go to "Start," then "Run" and type in "bthprops.cpl." Click "OK" to open the Bluetooth Settings window. b> View Options b> Click on the "Options" tab, and select the "Turn discovery on" check box. Click "Apply." b> Allow Devices b> In the "Connections" section, select the check box for "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" so that Bluetooth devices can connect to your Asus. Click "OK." b> Testing for Bluetooth b> If you are unsure whether your Asus is Bluetooth capable, try typing in the "bthprops.cpl" command in the "Run" box. If it's unsuccessful, your machine isn't Bluetooth capable. Hope this helps.

Display not centered, no access to vertical scroll bar


That's because the LCD screen is going bad.

I would have said the screen Inverter, but the LCD screen uses LED's as a Backlight, and uses no screen Inverter.

The above is just an example. Shop around for a better price, but advise make sure it is a reputable dealer. (I do NOT advertise for anybody)

Found this recently. I feel number 2 adds to replacing the LCD screen, and number 3, also adds another idea for those who may be interested,

Tool bar moved t right and is large


Right click on the task bar (I assume you mean the bar that is typically at the bottom of your desktop?)
Make sure "Lock the Task bar" is not checked
Click on the border of the task bar
drag directly from where you clicked to the bottom
Adjust height accordingly

Sounds like you have a virus. Until you get it going again or remove the hard drive and run a good anti virus programme to check and clear the problems, try F9 at boot up.

Wont display the desk top


Try rebooting, tap F8 to get into the multi-boot options. Scroll down and choose "Last Known Good Configuration" windows should boot up normally. If you have made any hardware changes or if windows perfromed a corrupt update, that will require some additional help.
