Does your EEE PC have Windows OR Linux on it?

On windows, install FFDSHOW and VLC media player, with these two you can play almost any kind of video file.

FFDSHOW http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=4786&s=50 You will need to save this file to your desktop then right click and extract all, follow the extract wizard to extract the files to your desktop or to a folder on desktop.

Then run the setup or .exe file to install the program, just press NEXT NEXT NEXT you don't need to change any settings.

you can get VLC media player from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ this will work on both linux and windows.

We could do a remote support session and I could sort it out as long as your using windows but remote support software I use wont work with linux.

please tell me more about the problem if this doesn't solve it.

Thanks,
Ekse

Asus pro31f series duoT2350 notebook does not boot up. Potential motherboard failure? How do I recover data?


A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
B) Remove the Harddrive;

According to specifications it is a 100GB SATA harddrive.

Harddrives are measured across their width.
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 Inches across in width. (2 -1/2 inches)
Desktop harddrives are 3.5

Install the Asus Pro 31F harddrive in a 2.5 SATA external enclosure.
The external enclosure has a USB cable. Turns your laptop harddrive into an external harddrive.

One example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

C) I believe what may be going on, is you have a failed Power MOSFET, or Power MOSFET's.

?O_O?

MOSFET,

Power MOSFET,

D2PAK surface mount,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D2PAK

(Requires using a clip heatsink on each lead when soldering.
After all, this uses Transistors )

Motherboard problem, yes I believe you may be correct.
Repairable? Yes.
Find a tech that can perform this? Isn't easy.
Most just want to replace motherboards.
Why? More $$$$$$$$.

(Ahem, I'm telling you about it, so I am not one of these noobs! Lol!)

I have plugged my lap top power into 'my book' and yes I have cooked a component on the PSB card, is the car repairable or can it be replaced?


It would be better to remove the harddrive inside the WD My Book, and install it into an economical external enclosure.
Suggest you forget trying to repair the interface circuit board inside.

If I am all wrong, and have misread your problem, please state in a Comment.

If I am correct so far, and if memory serves, the harddrive inside is a SATA model.
I don't know however if it is a laptop sized harddrive, or a desktop sized harddrive.

A laptop sized harddrive is 2-1/2 inches across in width. (2.5 inches)
A desktop harddrive is 3-1/2 inches across in width. (3.5 inches)

Once you open the case you will know.

By using an economical external enclosure you will have a external harddrive again.

This is one example of an economical 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

This is one example of an economical 3.5 SATA external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2145406&CatId=2780

This is information that may help in opening the WD's case, and extracting the harddrive,

WD 500G HDD suddenly un-readable; changed name to local disk, says I need to format in order to use it. I have tons of important stuff on there.


Could you confirm if the problem with the drive not being recognized is a problem with the USB cable? I have a 250GB passport and it worked fine with my XP. Once I decided to reformat it to NTFS and tried to do so by plugging into my new windows7 laptop the problems started.

ASUS SDRW-08D2S-U External Slim DVD-RW : Cannot play burned dvd on home dvd players (Sanyo & Magnavox). Have tried HP dvd+r, Memorex dvd+r, & Melody dvd+rw. This is the message I get when I try to...


what sort of burning software are you using it might be because you have not removed any copywrights
http://mac.majorgeeks.com/download4900.html
DVDBackup is intended to let you exercise your "fair use" rights under copyright law to either "time-shift" or "space-shift" DVD content which you may have purchased legitimately.
An example of time-shifting would be to temporarily store the data from a DVD you rented so as to watch it at a later time after you have returned the disc (and avoided late fees!). An example of space-shifting would be to copy one or more DVD discs to your laptop hard drive so as to watch them while on a long airplane flight. Another way that you could use DVDBackup would be to modify or excerpt sections of the DVD video and audio to create your own movies.

Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
