Bought an asus tp500L a week ago. Barely used it

Bought an asus tp500L a week ago. Barely used it and now I've pressed the power button and the 'getting windows ready,don't turn off your computer' screen has been on for at least 20minutes now and ongoing. Is something wrong?

If there is nothing moving on your screen chances are Windows crashed and you'll have little option other than turning it off despite the advice on your screen. Yours is a new enough machine that it should not have these problems due to hardware however. It may be that there is a software error that needs be fixed. Which version of Windows are you using?

    It finally turned on,I just turned it off with the power button and turned it back on. I thought that this computer was meant to have a quick start up?it seems like it takes too long for a brand new laptop. Usually takes like 1.5-2 minutes without complications to start up.
    And Im pretty sure it's windows 8.1

SOURCE: eee pc won't turn on (I think have already posted this,not sure)

Sounds like a classic case of hardware failure!!!!!!! possibly your motherboard, start by removing the battery, hard drive and optical drive.
disconnect the laptop monitor and connect the laptop to an external monitor.
remove the memory modules clean the brass contacts with a eraser and place back in the machine 1 at a time to check to see if they work, remember to plug in the AC power suppy, if you see the post screen then its a memory issue and you can then reconnect your laptop monitor to see if it lights up, if everything works but the monitor then its the inverter or backlight that has blown and is easily repairable saving you money on a brand new screen

SOURCE: Notebook won't start/lcd is blank but the power is on

You could have a faulty motherboard or RAM.
First remove the main battery and boot up the laptop without the main battery connected, if it boots up insert the battery, no need to power down. If that doesn't work, switch off/disconnect the adapter and insert the battery, then reseat the RAM modules and boot up.

If nothing works then you have a piece of junk. You can salvage the hard disk and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

SOURCE: ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.

You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

SOURCE: I have the identical problem as chrisdangelo

hello

I have read your problem and the solution to your problem may be following.

  • The BIOS setting may have changed.You can reset the BIOS settings.
  • The hard disk type may have changed..look for SATA and ATA.
  • Or your window got corrupt.Reset the BIOS setting and reinstall the windows using boot able CD.
  • if nothing work out then may be your hard disk connector is loose or your hard disk is gone.
thank you

Just had the same thing happen, and I thought it was the motherboard. Then a tech friend removed the battery and held the power button down. Then he replaced the battery, and it booted up fine! Good luck...

Is there a dvd player on the ASUS TP500L laptop?


You could connect the two devices by a network cable (Cat 6 RJ45) and use file sharing, but I prefer to use a USB-to-USB transfer cable, like the one attached. It is USB 3.0 compatible but is still very fast at USB 2.0 speeds.

This sounds like a common problem on these TVs (it's happened to both of my AOC TVs a couple times). Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

On laptops, sometimes your TouchPad is disabled for no apparent reason. To reactivate it, first try restarting your PC. If there's no good change just try:

We need the software driver and your mouse are installed

This trick works in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
  • Go to Control Panel> Mouse> Settings tab of the device
  • Click (or to disable)

Notes:
  • On some models, there is a keyboard shortcut to activate or deactivate the touchpad. For example, a ACER, just do Fn + F7.
  • You can click Reset device if neither of those solutions will work.
  • The official website provides synaptics drivers and software needed to run your TouchPad.
  • On the latest laptops, there is a special button to Enable/Disable the Touchpad.
  • HOPE THIS HELPS
