Asus Eee pc 904 hd how can i reformat my computor to original factory settings


Do you mean to ERASE everything on the hard drive and then re-install the OS and all the drivers from scratch?

Before you do any of the follwing, be ABSOLUTELY SURE that you have access to the drivers you'll need for your computer. If you don't have access to the original CD/DVD, you can download them from here:
http://www.eeeguides.com/2008/03/asus-eee-pc-drivers-download-windows-xp.html

You will also need the SERIAL NUMBER or "PRODUCT ACTIVATION KEY" for your copy of Windows. If you have misplaced this, you can try the following program, which will read the product activation key from your HD:
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/rockxp.html

There are several programs out there to erase the contents of your HD and re-format it.

A) One option is to use your OS CD/DVD:

1) Place your OS CD/DVD in the CD-ROM and boot from it (you may need to change something in your BIOS so that the computer does not boot from the HD.

2) After the CD boots, choose "install OS" (do not choose "repair installation").

3) You will be asked if you want to DELETE the partition in your HD that has your OS. Choose "YES". This will delete ALL information previously stored in your HD.

4) Proceed with the OS installation, following the directions on the screen.

5) After the OS is installed and your copy of Windows is validated, install all the drivers

YOU ARE DONE

Please, report back if you need further assistance

Pc won't let me reformat it i've no disc because it's built in on the hard drive please help


If you want to reformat a harddrive on your current computer, you need to remove the drive and plug it in as a secondary drive on another computer. Then formatting is easy.

Alternatively, you can use your operating system installation disk and format before re-installing your OS.

How to reformat the lab top


Instructions
  1. If you have the recovery cd, you can just pop-in the CD, select the reformat option and the installation process will continue automatically. Some laptop might have a special partition in the drive contains the operating system, drivers, etc. in case you want to reformat your laptop without the CD.
  2. If you don't have the recovery CD, you usually can request one from the manufacturer. Otherwise, if you want to do a clean install, make sure you download all the drivers for your laptop, this may includes: motherboard, chipset, graphic card, sound card, modem, network card. Once you do that, put in the OS CD and start installing.
  3. If you decided to do a clean install without the recovery CD, it would be best to create partition on your harddrive first, so you can have dedicated partition for operating system and backup. The next time you want to reformat your harddrive, you can just reformat that particular partition ex. C:\
  4. After the reformatting process finished and you have installed a new clean OS. Install drivers one by one and restart when it's required. Try to do it in order from basic function -> secondary ex. motherboard, chipset, graphic, sound, modem, networking, etc.
  5. Install back all programs that you might need. If you already backup the installation programs or have the installation CDs handy, you can do this pretty fast.
  6. Rearrange the look and customize your new operating system, refer to the screenshot you have taken earlier before the reformatting process begin if you want to get the same look and feel.
Do it and reply me.

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?


I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.

First things first my friend:

you sad it, you try to put a lamborgini engine on a volky of 1970! so you have to move for a new PC, since new DVD burners and DVD ROM, use more advance internal features, speed, IDE enhancesments.
OR you can refortmat your OS and install the new device, check your BIOS for LBA changes, and 32 bit acces modes. (it help)
