Question about ASUS Eee PC 1000H Laptop

1 Answer

Desktop theme changes at startup

- Dual boot windows/ubuntu eee
- In windows, I have changed the desktop look from 'windows xp' to 'windows classic'. Every so often at startup it goes back to 'windows xp' for no apparent reason.
- In ubuntu eee after startup, log in, etc, it takes about three minutes for certain features to work. Namely, the shutdown button and a Huawei E220 USB Modem I have managed to install, which works fine in windows as soon as the system has started.

Thank you

That's not supposed to be a problem... When you log in to your account windows loads your personal settings, as well as other programs, so it's supposed to take time. Windows probably has the theme set on default so it would show that while your settings are loading. That or you've got a virus... But... if you think your computer is unusually slow then that's a different problem. Try cleaning up your hard disk space and doing other sorts of stuff, like scanning for viruses to make it run faster.

HOW TO DELETE AERO FROM MY WIN 7 HOME


Windows Aero Glass is Microsoft's 3-D high-end interface for Windows 7. In order to get this interface, you must be running a video card that supports running Aero Glass. Some video cards barely support running Aero Glass and performance suffers and the computer will lag. By simply disabling Aero Glass, you can take a crawling computer and bring new life into it. In any situation, if you want to increase performance, disable Aero Glass.

Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize. Select Windows 7 Basic theme and a "Please Wait" icon appears and changes your theme. Select Windows Classic theme if you are used to a Windows XP look and feel. A "Please Wait" icon appears and changes your theme. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproui/thread/ce96731f-8f7a-4d13-ba9b-7826cb595e3d

We have a isusputer which has ubuntu installed .


Seeing as it didn't come with it from the factory that is considered piracy. So assuming you go out and buy a legal copy of Windows XP with a Key you would need to get an External DVD drive and boot from that. As for the drivers you would need to go to ASUS and see if they have the ones for XP. Once you format the system it will be blank so there may not be any drivers to make the computer do anything but boot to windows desktop. In the end it would be better to take it to someone who works on computers and can do this properly. Or else you may be left with a blinking paperweight.

I have a hp pavilion 2120tx with windows 7 and i want to dual boot windows 7 and windows xp [windows 7 first]


You can create a Dual Boot in ur machine....
C: XP
D: or E: or F: as Win7

You need to re-format your disk, back up all critical data in your disk....
once done...boot with XP disk in CD drive....
after format, create multiple partitions....C: , D: , E: etc as per your preference
install XP in C:
once done...start PC and let the machine boot from C: XP...once you get Desktop in XP
install Win7 in D: or E: as prefered....once done..
in the startup screen you will get these 2 options
1 load earlier version of Windows
2 Windows 7
to make Win7 as default, right click on My computer (Win7), Properties / Advancd System Settings / Advanced Tab / Startup and Recovery / Under System Startup - Chose the Default OS by the down arrow and the time to it must be displayed in the startup to chose the OS....by this method you can chose Win7 or Xp to load...make your choice as prefered...
reg

Ubuntu installation


Relax Sairam -- you don't have know all these answers.

First step, download Ubuntu and burn to a CD .

Second adjust your bios if necessary to change the boot preferences on your machine, so that it will try your CD/DVD device first before trying to boot from a hard disk.

Third, let the Ubuntu Live CD execute and bring up a desktop. On the desktop, there should be an icon to actually install Ubuntu. It will guide your through all the decisions that you need to make.

You may find it advantageous to have a "dual boot" configuration on your machine... i.e., having the choice of running some windows operating system, or ubuntu.
