Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Try to reset your BIOS by removing the button cell located at your motherboard and put it back. Check the SATA connector of your hard drive and make sure it fits right. Boot the machine and set-up to "boot from CR-ROM". And install new WINDOWS XP.

How do I turn on my wifi switch on my Asus F555l


Hi there,

Usually hold the [ fn ] key and the [ f2 ] together or just the [ f2 ] key depending on how your "Hotkeys" are setup. If you've had a fresh install of windows or the drivers aren't working properly you can do it manually by going into the bios like so:
Step 1
Turn on your Asus Netbook. If your netbook is already on, click the "Start" button, click the arrow next to the "Shut Down" button and then click "Restart."

Step 2
Wait for the Asus Netbook BIOS screen to appear, then press the "F2" key.
Step 3
Press the "Right" arrow to scroll over to the "Advanced" tab.
Step 4
Press the "Down" arrow until you reach the "Onboard Devices Configuration" option. Press the "Enter" key.
Step 5
Press the "Down" arrow to "Onboard WLAN" then press the "Enter" key.
Step 6
If the "Disabled" option is highlighted, press the "Up" arrow to highlight the "Enabled" option, then press the "Enter" key.
Step 7
Press the "F10" key. Press the "Enter" key to save your changes and exit the BIOS. Note: If you are missing your hotkey drivers you can find them here under the ATK section (Use the latest version) http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=3&s=670&m=F555LA&os=&hashedid=n%2fa

usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

Enable PS2 & USB in BIOS You can enable PS2 and USB settings in BIOS by entering the BIOS setup screen when the computer boots. You will need to changes to the appropriate settings in this screen. The exact procedures vary by system, but there are a few common methods that may work if the motherboard manual is not available for guidance. The general procedure is the same for any modern computer system, but the menu arrangement and keystrokes to enter the setup program can vary greatly from one machine to the next. Power on or restart the computer and watch the initial boot screen to find the keystroke required to enter BIOS setup. This is often shown at the bottom of the screen. Typical keystrokes include pressing the "F1," "F2," "F9," "F10" or "Del" key. Press this key when the prompt appears on the screen. You can find the proper key in the computer's motherboard manual or on the website of the motherboard or computer manufacturer. Enter the BIOS setup screen and look for the "Advanced" or "Onboard Device Configuration" menu. Use the arrows to select your choice and press "Enter." Change the settings for the PS2 port by moving the menu choice to the "PS2" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with the options to enable or disable the PS2 ports. Select "Enabled." You can also use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the PS2 port. Change the settings for the USB port by moving the menu choice to the "USB" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with options to enable or disable the USB ports. Select "Enabled." Alternatively, use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the USB port. Save the settings and exit by pressing "F10" or using the "Esc" key to back out of the current menu. Choose to save and exit from the main menu if needed. Follow any additional instructions on the screen to save or navigate the menus. Hope this helps.

Need to reset to factory defaults



Restart your computer. Press F9 key immediately when the ASUS logo appears. This will start the recovery procedure, including the installation of all the drivers and utilities. Follow the instructions. Your computer will be restored to the factory settings.
1. Recover windows to first partition only. this option will delete only the first partition, allowing you to keep other partitions, and create a new system partition as drive "c". 2. Recover windows to entire HD. This option will delete all partitions from your hard disk drive and create a new system partition as drive "C". 3. Recover windows to entire HD with 2 partition. This option will delete all partitions from your hard drive and create two new partitions "C" (60%) and "D" (40%).

Usually, the brand new ASUS notebook computer hard disk is with 2 partitions. So, it is suggested that you select “3. Recover windows to entire HD with 2 partitions”.

HELP! I can not access "setup" (by pressing the delete key). When I press the delete key it say, "entering setup", then shuts down. I have tried barebones, 1 stick of ram in each of the 4 slots, nothing...


Have you tried clearing the bios? there's a jumper in the motherboard that let's you erase all settings done in the bios and return it to its original state. Some motherboards even include a password erase jumper for the bios. Check your motherboard manual for the location. Just place the jumper in the clear position and return it back. Some motherboards may require you to turn on the pc while in the clear position and then turn them on again in the normal position to perform a through clearing.

If this isn't working you might be dealing with a corrupted bios... data on it might have got altered by a virus or some error. So now it doesn't work as it should.

If you can't boot your PC and enter windows or browse the internet, then you must work from another computer and download a bios image from the manufacturer web page and look for an alternate method of bios update that lets you update your bios from a floppy disk or maybe from a pendrive.

If you can access windows and the only problem is that you can't access bios, then do a bios update through windows directly, downloading the new bios image from the manufacturer's webpage.

Take note some motherboards won't boot up if there's a problem with the CPU fan, to protect the CPU from burning.
