Question about ASUS Eee PC 900 Notebook
After having downloaded and installed updates, the computer will now show the starting system screen, will immediately go black with a flashing cursor in left top corner, and then switch between black and gray screens.
I tried resetting using the reset button to no avail. Then I tried using F9 to reset to factory settings. Upon powering down, then up again, I still get the same flashing black/gray screens.
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:
