Question about ASUS Eee PC 901 XP Notebook

1 Answer

Same as above I think

We bought 5 of these 901 20G models for our study group. Had to load XP (pro) in order to get 3 must have programs not supported by Linux. 4 of the 5 work fine, although patience is definitely a necessity. However, one of the 5 901's does'nt like to boot up. If the blue wireless light stays lit after power on is pressed, then that's as far as it will go. Same with recovering from hibernate. Have to hard shut down, then power on again, maybe 2 or 3 times before it properly boots or wakes up from hibernate. Funny thing though, if you try to come out of hibernate, and all the lights stay lit with black screen, (even after waiting and hour) and you hard shut down (press and hold power button til power off) then reboot, it actually will come out of hibernate! (Resuming Windows--------). Tried changing RAM card, but to no avail. Can't find a reset. Have wiped HD and reloaded XP 3 times now. I hope this unit isn't a dud. We haven't mailed in the warrantee yet. Bought from Amazon 2 weeks ago.

Display of icons lost after spontaneous shut down,couldnt get any icoon on screen after logging in.


Hello Pradeep,

Similar question for you below...Multiple choice questions when studying pertinent materials using programmed instruction, result in much high I.Q. scores than expected. On to Icons...

Regarding your Dell Latitude 13 Icon it can't display... hmmm.
Please stop turning the device on and off. It is at these events that most damage occurs to a computer.
What operating system are you using? Linux? XP H or Pro?
What programs do you use most often?
Are you willing to install several freeware programs that can help with a solution on your computer?
I've attached an icon with a png extension, at the bottom.. Please drag/drop to your desktop and let me know the result?

Assuming you are in Mubai it is early evening and a reply this evening would help me provide a solution more quickly although tomorrow is fine as well...

Thanks,

Jimm

Is there an updated Acer ScanPrisa 124Out driver compatible with Windows 7 anywhere?


Unfortunately, there are no Win7 drivers for this scanner. THe drivers are for Windows 98SE through XP. The support for the ScanPrisa 1240UT is available here: http://benq.co.uk/support/downloads/downloads.cfm/dtype/M/page/downloads/product/87 . Click on the Drivers tab.

The XP driver may work under Windows 7 32-bit in the Compatibility Mode. (To check your version of Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the Windows version title ends with x64, you do not have the 32-bit version. Otherwise, you do.) To use this driver in Windows 7 32-bit, download the .zip file and extract it. (Right click and choose Extract All.) Then find the installer (Setup.exe) and right click again and select Properties. Click on the Compatibility Tab and check "Always run this program as compatible with" and fill in XP in the drop down menu. Right click again and choose Run As Administrator.

If you have Windows 7 64-bit, you will need to use a computer with the older version of Windows. This can be a virtual computer (if your hardware supports it), a dual boot machine, or a physical second computer. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to them, you can run a virtual XP computer for free (again if your hardware is capable of doing it). In that case, download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install the programs in order. Then install the scanner using the drivers from the above link as if the XP mode is your regular computer. Other virtual computer programs include VMWare and Parallels. However for those and the other options, you will need a licensed copy of the older versions of Windows. (If you know a Windows User's Group member, you may have a source for older versions of Windows.)

I hope this helps.

I have an alps MD400 and am running xp pro with drivers for xp and can't get the thing to print and need a trouble shooter


There are WinXP drivers for the MD-4000. You can find them in the files section in the Yahoo ALPS Group. There are some conflicts with the Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and the ALPS printers. It is best to connect to a computer running SP2 and has a parallel port. The ALPS group also has the Twain for the Scanner. The MD-4000 does require a carrier to scan things.
