Hi guys I really need help with this !!!. my netbook(asus Eee pc 1005p) just randomly stopped working one day. When I turn it on nothing happens all the light flash once and then it turns off. Please help...


Does the battery indicator on the laptop light up when the charger is plugged in? I have had a few laptops where the chargers had the light on but they weren't actually charging the laptops. Drop me an email with more info or reply on here and I will try my best to help.

Hey guys, Ive been having a strange problem with


seems to be a problem with the board (can't say for sure if its on hardware or firmware side). i don't think removing a cd while resuming is gonna do this but there are specific instances wherein removal of certain pen drives or other usb storage devices has resulted in a lost Hibernation session.even then you are usually provided with an option to delete the restoration data and start over. try resetting the BIOS settings if you are able to get into the settings page. otherwise try manual reseting by removing the BIOS button cell inside the laptop and replacing after a while only(say 30-40 seconds).

Compaq 6710b all 4 usb ports not working


Hi there.
Sounds like the iphone has overloaded the system and knocked the USB controllers out.
Reboot the machine and enter the bios (this is usually F2 on start up) reset the bios to its default settings, save and exit. The laptop should then reboot and hopefully you should have USB control back.
Post back if you still have no USB.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hard drive problem


I've been wrestling with tw IBM's with similar issues for the last three days, one of which wouldn't recognize the hard drive or the CD drive. I'm going to suggest flashing the bios, this worked on the ones I have. Here's a link to the bios download. I recommend that you use the one for creating a diskette. Try this and let me know.

Hi, When flashing a BIOS, you would need a bootable diskette (or CD) with basic DOS and the ROM .bin or BIOS update files plus the flashing software. In the CMOS/BIOS setup, you have to instruct the computer to boot first from the floppy diskdrive (or the CD as the case may be). Then run the flashing software/application and type in the filename of the new BIOS. Most modern motherboards no longer uses jumper switches to allow/disallow BIOS writing/update. If for some reason there are jumper switches, perhaps we can confirm if you would post the brand/model/version of the motherboard/computer. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.

Had the same problem with My Compaq M700 No Boot Or Post. Battery Light Flashes 8 Times, Have to Wait 24 to 48 hrs sometimes longer to get Laptop to Start. Tryed the DC Converter Board Change No Difference same Problem. Noticed When Laptop Did Start Clock Time Was always a Little Off 2-4 Hours sometimes more. So Figure CMOS Problem With Time Issues. Read About Battery Memory Transitor Voltage spike Detection Issues Corrected With Newer Bios Flash at HP Supports. So I Flashed Bios With Latest 686h. During the First Boot After Reflash Battery LED Did flash No Start, After pushing the power button again it Started. And has Every since.So Far Laptop Now Boots Everytime and CMOS Checksum Seems To Keep Time Correct In Windows. The Bios Flash Corrects a Voltage Spike Detecting Transistor In The Charging Circuit. During First Start after flash Bios will run system test on the charging system and Correct CMOS. Worked for Me Hope this Helps a Few.
