ASUS notebook gone inactive

I have a new ASUS PRO31F series, loaded with XP Pro 5.1 SP2. While trying to set up so that I have dual screen display when attached to an LG digital projector, and when exploring the graphics media accelerator driver properties, I may have unintentionally...

a. pressed cntr alt F1
b. pressed Fn Zz
c. or something else!

The notebook immediately seemed to freeze with a black screen. I cannot find out how to start it moving again. Has it gone to sleep? What does the Fn Zz do?
The green power light is still on, and the notebook is probably still running on battery power after 8 hrs. Maybe when the battery power runs out the notebook will close, and then I can use the start button (with mains power) to start up again.
Where can I find a User Manual for this ASUS notebook that gives me information about Fn Zz etc?
Any help appreciated.

Re: ASUS notebook gone inactive

I had a similiar problem. My laptop ran an external monitor perfectly but main display was inactive. I re-loaded the display driver, which re-actived the laptop display but it was so dark I could hardly see it. No back-light. Further research indicated that the switch for the laptop cover may be stuck. I pressed it a couple of times and voila the display is back functioning as normal.

Re: ASUS notebook gone inactive

It is possible that you switched off the internal video display, enabling the external adapter. If this is the case, you should be able to plug in an external monitor, get your display back, and change monitors back to the internal one via software (display properties).

I have ASUS EEE PC 900 series (White) netbook. I have formatted it and loaded it with Windows XP and within 4 days of use, my netbook was working slow and on the 4th day itself i tried to switch it on but...

This notebook is not designed to work on such an outdated platform. XP was for year 2000 not 2010/11
If you load Win7 and the motherboard drivers you should have no more problems.

Linux is running but windows sp2 is not loading.

Check your Grub loaders settings and i am pretty sure the windows partition has to be fat32 not ntfs to have a dual boot system.

VGA Driver Not Found for Asus X95GL WinXP 2002 Pro SP2

I think perhaps that should be X59GL.

The GL suffix suggests that the graphics chip is made by nVidia.

Please try downloading the GeForce for Notebooks driver for your relevant Operating System. You did not mention whether you run Windows XP, Windows Vista, or whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit - you need to know this.

If you check the System Properties in Control Panel, you should find this information.

Here is the driver download page:

I hope this solves your issue.

Touchpad not working after re-install windows XP SP2.

You can't load Windows XP over Vista. Microsoft has it in the BIOS that it cannot be overlaid with an older system. The only way to use XP is to attempt to dual-boot but that will take you some research. Load vista back...don't blame me Microsoft screwed us..

Pls rate solution.

Display resolution goes from 1024x600 to 800x600 at start up.

try reinstalling the drivers for the onboard graphics and for the monitor. Might be the monitor is not supporting the default resolution.
