You might try the Delete or all the F function keys also some computers use cntrl +alt +delete Finding lost application install keys is quick and simple with this handy executable, a complete rewrite of a well-received earlier version.

Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:

"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer." If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.
b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.
Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.
c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.

Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"
d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.
e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.
f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option. g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands: bootrec.exe /fixmbr bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message) bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd
h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.
i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".
These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.
J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window.

Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.
This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.
Hope this helps. Keyfinder Thing's simple, easy-to-understand interface has Wizard-like efficiency. This application quickly scans your system registry for 90 supported software titles and displays product names and icons in the result window. Single-button clicks copy all keys to either a text or HTML file. b> Product Key Finder is a single function utility that executes in a GUI, but displays a Command window result. You merely double-click it to display the 25 character Microsoft Windows Product Key. then store it away for safe keeping not on your computer

OK, here is what you need to do, you need to get a USB - DVD dongle, either SATA or IDE. Similar to this at this link. Get your recovery DVD, put it into the DVD. Then, set the eeepc to "BOOT" from removeable media. The PC should then boot of the DVD and you can then install OR repair the install. I have included a link that gives you a step by step.

SOURCE: following instructions for factory settings on

ASUS netbooks have a Boot Booster which renders all activity obsolete, you need to disable the boot booster first.

First you need to access the BIOS/Setup Utility, on an ASUS machine/Motherboard you need to hit "Del" or "F2" not F9 at this stage.

Once in the Setup Utility, using your arrow keys navigate to the Boot options page. Using down arrow key navigate to Boot Booster option and hit Enter to disable. Once the option is disabled navigate to the last tab Exit, and using down arrow key to navigate to Exit and Save Changes.

Your laptop will then reboot and as soon as it does you may start to hit "F9" which will start the Factory Settings utility. You can then follow the on screen instructions to continue wit the resetting of your machine.

    Asus computer freezing up

    Windows vista is a large operational system that caused the very complaints that people were talking about and that is why window 7 came in because it is lighter and faster and takes less resources. But to address your problem sub out the ram memory one at a time to see if there is a difference, quite often reseating the ram will sometimes fix the problem.

    Hi i have a asus 2gb surf and it wont pick up windows i tried the f9 reboot but it doesnt work, whats the best way for me to get it back to original factory state, i do not have the recovery CD im not sure...

    Best ways would be the following
    • Contact Asus for the recovery disc OR
    • Google TinyXP and install that. It's basically a highly modified version of XP that is very small and a good idea for a surf. Only takes up about 390MB of space.

    I want to reset it

    Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

    Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

    Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

    Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

    Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

    Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

    Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.
