Re: firewalls

If you want to disables Vista’s FIREWALL then you need to go into your Windows Security Center (you can easily turn ‘off’ the firewall from there).
Click Start and click Control Panel.
Click Security and then select Windows Firewall.
Click Change Settings.
From the window that appears, click the Advanced tab.
Remove the check beside the connection that you want to disable the Windows Firewall for.
Click OK.

Laptop unable to connect wirelessly to new BT Home Hub (it was fine with the previous Homehub and works OK with fixed cable). BT say the wireless adapters on my laptop are out of date. Laptop O/S is...

Have you tried going to device manager in the control panel find your wireless adapter driver and click on update driver? hopefully this will then find a driver update if not you could try the manufacturers web site for the latest driver.

Asus notebook windows 7 totally frozen..."not responding" Can't even exit without holding power off.

This is due to the fact that your ASUS Eee PC 701 PC does not offer minimum System requirements to run windows 7

Microsoft has published their minimum specifications for a system running Windows 7
  • 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) / 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available disk space (32-bit) / 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

But I suggest following as min to run smoothly

  • A Dual Processor (AMD or Intel) – you can use a lower Celeron or Pentium Processor, but you will regret it

  • 2 GB RAM (operating memory) – you can use less, but you will regret it

  • 16 GB available disk space and another 20 to 30 GB if you plan on running applications

  • A Vista compatible graphics card (DirectX 9 graphics process with WDDM 1.0 or higher)

  • A Vista compatible sound card

  • Vista drivers for any other unique hardware you have on or connected to your computer

If this helps please do leave a vote and rate for the solution.

Unable to connect EEEPC 701 to BT HOME HUB 2

sometimes the best thing to do is start over.

reset any hubs, routers, switchers, etc.
then (just fro now) remove any firewalls,
or software that may get in the way.
You want to start with a bare minimum configuration and build from there.

eeepc works well with windows networks, the ethernet connection should just work, without additional software.

does eepc connect to other networks?
can other laptops connect to your network?
check all settings: ip address, dhcp or static, passwords, etc.

Try a "wired" ethernet connection, then try the wireless connection. if all else fails, use F9 (or DVD disk to reset/reload the system. i.e. start over.

Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

I have a asus eeepc notebook i cant access it i forgot my password can you help me

Eee PC's use Windows XP and Linux, if you tried Vista on one it would almost kill it :P

If it is Windows XP, restart it. When it turns on keep presing the F8 Key until it asks you to Choose between Safe Mode etc.

Choose Safe mode. When it starts up, click the Administrator Account. From there you can change your password.
