Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook

1 Answer

Eee 900A goes through fast start then blacks out

Eee 900A goes through very short starting computer and then screen goes black with - (dash) displayed in upper left of the black screen. If keys are pressed the screen displays three unknown characters per press. This condition offers no way to key any command to the computer. If turned off and on again, the results repeat. Shutting down message appears at shut down.. Two Eee computers responded the same way.. Must be common problem. Linux is the operating system.
Any suggestions from blessedbe2all@yahoo.com

    Helpful answer to my black screen problem on my 900A eeepc. I have DVD player with USB cable connected to the eeepc. Problem is, how to get the restore information transfered from the DVD player to the eeepc? The setup just sits ther and refuses to respond to any attempt to transfer data.

yes you just lost linux, it needs re-doing but with an external CD ROM drive unless it has a partition
for recovery in which either F10 key will do it or another key check the manual for RECOVERY of operating system its not a big problme but it takes few hours to solve

Asus Eee pc 900. Boots up but after booting only shows black screen. How do I fix this?


If you are only getting a black screen and you are sure it's booting (how do you know?), then the problem would be the incorrect video settings in Windows. In this case, you might try starting in safe mode and resetting the video adapter.
If you see stuff on the screen as the system boots but then it goes black, then it's definitely a Windows issue.
If you see nothing at all but hear the system starting, then it's a hardware issue involving the video card.

Hi my laptop turns on and goes to the windows


Hi,

If it starts to load the operating system and then the display goes black then chances are that the dispay/video drivers are corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode by restarting the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key as it starts. This should bring up a sub menu with safe mode at the top. Use the cursor keys to highlight safe mode and press enter.
You will see white boot information scroll up the screen, be patient and wait for it to load up.
Click on your account and you will see a message about system restore. You don't want to use system restore so click on yes to work in safe mode.

Right click on My Computer/Computer and click on manage from the list. Then select Device Manager.

Look in the list for display adapters and click on the + or > next to to expand the list. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and it should load up the operating system and reinstall the drivers for the display.

Regards.

Asus EEE PC 900A Linux- boot problem after downloading updates


Consider downloading a specific release of Ubuntu; eeebuntu. Download the ISO and then conenct an external DVD device to it, during the BIOS screen, choose the ESC button and boot from the external device.
This Ubuntu-specific group offers three kinds of ISO's (simple, super basic, and a loaded release), all of which allow all parts to work out of the box:

If this does not work, check the informal eeepc forums

Blank/Black Screen Asus PC 4G


When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.
