    Thanks for your help

  • ryanjones745 Jan 11, 2009

    There is no text at all, if I press a key the screen doesn change colour to the blue it normally is on xp - so it appears to be trying to do something. But it always goes back to the pale blue with yellow and black lines

  • ryanjones745 Jan 11, 2009

    Sorry, not very pc literate - whats an external display connector?

  • ryanjones745 Jan 11, 2009

    just tried to connect the pc screen and it was just a black screen?

  • ryanjones745 Jan 11, 2009

    Thanks - I tried the pc screen again, pressing Fn + F5 with no luck, still a black screen.

    I have a number for Asus service, will call them tomorrow. I only purchased the pc last october so it is still under warranty.



    Thanks again for your time.

Have you tried to enter to safe mode in boot option ?

If not go to safe mode have a virus check with latest antivirus software and try to remove the virus . But mostly it is not due to virus .
The yellow and black lines indicate that the capacitor is faulty in your monitor . You need to replace the capacitor to solve this problem .

It sounds like a hardware faulure, thats not normal operation of the laptop. if there is a problem you should see a error message if you only see lines and random stuff you most likely have a video card failure or other failure, I suggest you contact your dealer or asus for repair service.

    just to make sure my diagnosis was correct.. do you see anything when you turn it on? do you see any text? does it go to the random lines etc right away when you turn it on?

    does it try to start up?


  • Ekse Jan 11, 2009

    Okey, that definitely sounds like either a Display problem or the video card has a problem, does the small laptop have a external display connector? could you try a external display and see if you get anything on that?

  • Ekse Jan 11, 2009

    there should be a monitor connector on the right side of the laptop, you could connect a normal monitor / display if you have a desktop pc you could connect the monitor from that to the laptop and see if you get any picture on the other monitor.

  • Ekse Jan 11, 2009

    But, it wont fix the problem, it might give some more insight into the problem. You will still have to send this one to repair.

  • Ekse Jan 11, 2009

    theres a special button combination you need to press to enable to other display, hold down the FN button and its one of the F1-F12 keys, I don't know which one, one of them should enable the external display.

    If you find the button and you get normal picture on the extra display then the lcd display on your laptop has failed.

    you may need to restart the laptop to get picture while extra display is connected to the computer.

    If you get the same lines and so on, on the extra display the problem is in the Video card or the motherboard, I suspect the video card is build into the motherboard in this case so the repair would require to replace the whole mainboard.

    The price of a new mainboard is around or more the cost of the laptop when its new, so unless you got warranty you may get a big repair estimate on it.

On my asus Eee Pc 1201HAB the display shifted to the left so the left side is partially cut off, how do i fix it?


1) Looking at the User Manual right now, and do not see a Hot Key on the Keyboard, that shifts the display.

[ Hot Key is also known as Special Key. The F1 through F12 keys at the top of the keyboard, and also for your model, colored keys on the keyboard ]

It could be the Screen Resolution is messed up. Not set at the correct settings.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
At the bottom of the drop down list, click on Properties.

In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

The screen pixel resolution should be set at 1366 X 768,

http://www.screentekinc.com/Asus_EEE_PC_1201HAB--12.1-inch--1366x768-wxga_hd-laptop-lcd-screen.shtml

In the middle of the Display Properties window, you see the blue subheading - Screen resolution

Right under this small subheading is a Slider.
The Pointed 'arrow' with the green tip, and top, slides back, and forth on the 'line'.

It should state 1366 X 768.
If it does not;

A) Left-click on that green tipped Slider. Hold the left mouse button down. Move your mouse, and move the Slider. (Drag)
Move it to the Left to Decrease the screen resolution, or to the Right to Increase the screen resolution.

Can't set it to 1366 X 768? Post back in a Comment.
ALSO, the Color Quality should be set to -
Highest (32 bit)

If not click on the blue down arrow to the right of this box.
In the list left-click on Highest (32 bit)

Now go below to the right, and click on Apply.
After go below to the Left, and click on OK.

Still no joy?
Believe the problem is hardware related.

Could be something as simple (?) as a bad Video Cable.
(Goes from the motherboard, up under the left Hinge, and then up into the Display Assembly)

Could be the screen Inverter.

However the Eee PC 1201HAB is supposed to use an LCD panel, that has qa series of LED's for backlighting.
Newer backlighting that uses a series of LED's for the Backlight, doesn't require a screen Inverter.

There were some LED backlit LCD screen, that DID use a screen Inverter. Mostly the older models of laptops.
This is what makes me think your LCD screen's Backlight, (And LED), may use a screen Inverter,

http://www.batterystyle.com/asus-eee-pc-1201hab-screen-p-168219.html

Scroll down,
"5. Disconnect the power cable and video cable from the Asus EEE PC 1201HAB Lcd panel. The power cable connects the screen's power source, the lcd inverter, to the backlight lamp attached to a side of the panel."

Probably just a generic form, and didn't take in consideration that the Eee PC 1201HAB netbook, uses a series of LED's, as a Backlight.

May not have a screen Inverter.

To explain;
Primer:

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

(Click on the window with the computer monitor in it )

It needs an additional light source. A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.

[ LED = Light Emitting Diode.
CCFL stands for Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

{Average thickness of a CCFL bulb is 2mm. That is a a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
The average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height]

A screen Inverter is used to CONVERT the power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

Do not see any listings for an Asus Eee PC 1201HAB netbook, for a screen Inverter. Believe the LCD screen uses LED's for a Backlight, and does NOT use a screen Inverter.

Which means if the problem is in the Display Assembly, the LCD screen itself will need to be replaced.
The LED backlighting is built-in.

[Hmmmm, I see a trend going on here that I do not care for, and just woke up to it. Have to replace the entire LCD screen, and cannot just replace the Backlight, or screen Inverter? Sounds like Ka-ching $$$$$ for somebody!

A screen Inverter usually averages from $20 to $40+.
A Backlight ( CCFL) usually ranges from $10 to $15.
An average LCD screen can range from $80 to $300+.]

How to know if the problem is in the Display Assembly?
Use a VGA monitor, and connect it to your laptop.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF. Connect a VGA monitor's cable to the VGA port on the laptop.
(Left side rear. This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector { Port on a computer },

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

You can use an older CRT type of VGA monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable attached.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should automatically show, on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least three display options:
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press the Fn key down, and hold it down. At the same time tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
(Give it a few seconds. Sometimes it doesn't happen right away)

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F8 key.

Is the display off to one side on the external VGA monitor?

Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.


It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Asus eee box eb1501p I've got a problem with Win7 so i've deleted the partition on wich was win7 and i've installed winxp. At the first startup of winxp i've had the blue screen error and when i restart...


If you have deleted the Win7 partition then you will require a Win7 disc to start up and repair the system with.
Win XP will not run on this type of machine as there are no drivers for the VGA or main board.

I have asus 901 Eee PC that came with asus linux, tried to install windows 2000 or XP. i keep getting a blue screen stop error. any suggestions ???


To install windows on the Asus Eee comoputers, you need to install one that is built of linux.

This can be gained by paying an extra $50 when you make your Eee purchase, it is already installed to the computer.

The reason your are getting the blue screen is because these Eee computers are made specifiacly for linus and they cannot cope with your general Xp distro
