Question about ASUS G1Sn-X1 Notebook

White screen that reads ERROR after failed recovery

After trying to push the manual reset button under my ASUS G1Sn labtop and the F9 option, my computer is unable to complete the recovery wizard. I am asked to decide whether to recover these optional partitions: first partition only, entire HD, or entire HD with 2 partition. I have tried all three options with no success. I have also tried inserting the recovery CD's and ended up with no success. About 8% through any of these processes a white screen appears with big red letters that read: ERROR.

I can tell you how to fix this but it would require a $80 investment on your part. There is an excellent program called Spinrite 8.0 . It comes from Gibson research company. It comes with FreeDos installed for just these kind of problems. go to your BIOS and set it to load from cd. insert the disk and reboot. Use option 5 to repair your HDD. Now this can take a few hours or a few days depending on how damaged your HDD is. But I have fixed countless pc's and laptops with the same problem. if you don't want to make the investment use a torrent site and DL it for free (although this does violate copyrite) it will save you the $80.

Factory Restore


Try F9 during boot.. I doubt you repartitioned that small partition when you reformatted the main partition of the drive. Then again, the F9 function might not work anymore, even though the partition is still intact.. From Asus Support:
Using the Recovery Partition(on selected models)
1. Press < F9 > during bootup.
2. Press [Enter] to select Windows Setup [EMS Enabled].
3. Select the language you want to recover and click Next.
4. Read the ASUS Preload Wizard messages and click Next.
5. Select a partition option and click Next. Partition options:
Recover Windows to first partition only.
This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two new partitions "C" (25%) and "D" (75%).
6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the recovery process.

How do I wipe my hard drive clean and restore it to the way it was when I purchased it


If you have the original disc drive installed (and the original OS), try pressing F9 repeatedly after turning on the computer. (Sometimes, it can be hard to get the timing right - the button press needs to be seen after the POST and before Windows loads. If you see Windows starting to load, let it finish loading and then shut down the computer and try again.)

This will access the recovery partition and reformat the computer and restore the machine to the factory state. Follow the on-screen directions and make sure that you have saved your personal data elsewhere.

However, if your computer has the ASUS boot booster, you will need to disable this feature to access the recovery program. Try pressing F2 or Delete (depending on your machine) to enter the BIOS with the same timing as the above use of F9. Then find the option to Disable the boot booster. Then press the F9 key on another start up cycle. My ASUS computer doesn't have this feature so I'm not sure where it may be in the BIOS (if on your computer).

Asus offers a WinPE wipe and recovery option for some of their computers that can be put on a USB flash drive. http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20091019013723218&board_id=20&model=Eee+PC+1005HA&page=1&SLanguage=en-us has the procedure for one of their other models.

I hope this helps.

How do I do a factory reset on my asus mk90? F9 doen't work!


Is F9 the correct key? It could be any one of the F1 thru F12 keys. You have to turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F? key repeatedly to get into the Recovery.

Recovery might be in your program list. Click Start/Programs and look for any reference to Recover. It might also be in one of the ASUS folders in the program list.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ASUSSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and Documents. Search the manual for Factory Reset or Recovery and follow the instructions.

How can i restore my asus laptop to factory settings. i have 3 recovery geek squad disk.


Just on phone with ASUS rep. We're getting error on boot on a new unit. Told me to remove battery and power line and hold down power button for 30 seconds then plug in power (not batt) and press power then immediately press F9 again and again until a recovery screen that would reinstall from partition on hard drive appeared. Sadly, F9 didn't work for me and its off to service dept with a brand new unit that worked for 2 hours. Not so sure about ASUS. Have Compaq, HP & Toshibas with only one problem Toshiba within first year of purchase.
