How can i recover my eee pc asus notebook to factory settings


Restart your computer and hit "F2" as the black screen appears. This black screen only appears for a short time, so pay attention closely.

Use the right-arrow key until you see the "Advanced" option.

Select "OS Installation" by scrolling through the options with the down-arrow key on the computer keyboard.

Change the option from "Finished" to "Start" by using the "+" key.

Go to the "Exit" tab by using the right-arrow key. Do this step while making sure that "Exit & Save Changes" is selected as well, then press "Enter," or "OK," to give administrative permission to perform the request.

Press the "F9" key whenever the EeePC starts back up, then select "Restore Factory Settings" from the list of options.

Give confirmation for proceeding with the Factory Restore by clicking "OK" and "Enter." Your EeePC will be taken through the process for installing a fresh image on your machine.

hope this helps

Windows is not loading have black screen with white cursor then goes to acer and fast out again to white cursor


Hello, doing a "last known good configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:

1. Make sure your computer is powered down.

2. Turn your computer on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot options.

3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.

4. Press Enter on your keyboard and cross your fingers.

Good Luck!

INSPIRON 640M WILL NOT GO INTO SAFE MODE , IT GIVES OPTIONS BUT NONE OF THEM WORK , THEN IT GOES TO THE BLANK SCREEN.


Try going to safe mode manually. The steps mentioned below will help you accessing the safe mode

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.

Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option".

The Screen turns black when I attempt to start windows normally. It sounds like windows is starting, but nothing appears on the screen


Hi,

It sounds like windows has been set to a screen resolution beyond the limits of the capabilities of the built in LCD. Luckily windows has a menu that allows you to change to a highly compatible low resolution mode. To select this mode, start tapping the [F8] key just after the HP/Compaq screen when the computer switches on. Hopefully if you pushed the button in time, you should be presented with a menu. Use the up and down arrows on the keyboard to select the option that says either "Enable VGA Mode" or "Enable Low Resolution Video (640x480)".

Windows should now load, but everything will look extra large. To fix this, go into your display properties (right click on desktop and select either "properties" or "screen resolution"), and choose the recommended screen resolution.

My computer will turn on go thru all the motions like it is working it says windowsxp then goes to welcome screen then goes to my screen it wont show any programs or the start


It seems the Explorer.exe is not running properly or isn't loading. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete (when it shows nothing on the screen) on the keyboard, the Task Manger will pop up, click "File" and select "New Task (Run)" and type in "explorer.exe" (without quotes), wait for few seconds, it should open up all the features properly, if this fails, go into Safe Mode and try again. To go into Safe Mode, restart the computer and keep tapping the F8 button on the keyboard until you see the Advanced Boot Options with Safe Mode as one of the options. Select Safe Mode using the arrow keys on the keyboard and press enter, you will see white texts in the black screen, wait until you see a warning to confirm whether you want to boot into Safe Mode or not, give a positive input and proceed forward, once windows is loaded, you better run a full system virus scan or I would also recommend System Restore.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
