Hi! Please check the motherboard for blown or corroded capacitors. If the capacitors are faulty it can result to a sudden reset or no boot at all. YOu can determine a blown capacitor if it has a whitish powder on the top or theres a leak on the top. Once replaced you'll be good. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Asus Eee 1005HA hangs on boot


This works for my Asus Eee PC
1. Shut down and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button 10 times, next 1 minute pressing down.
3. Remove the memory and at the motherboard you'll see a clrrst (clear reset cmos..)
4. Short these 2 tiny pads by placing a tiny screw driver for 5 seconds, plug the power adapter and turn-on the switch, next wait at least for 3 seconds. Remove the power adapter.
5. Place back the battery and turn-on. You'll see the same screen (Logo of Asus) then patiently wait for at least 10 minutes or more. That's it.Good luck.

Welcome to Fixya.

I see that you're having boot issues, here are some other things that you can try :
  • Ensure that the computer is turned off
  • Unplug/disconnect all USB connections
  • Unplug the ac adapter cable
  • Carefully remove the battery
  • Press and hold down on the power button for at least 10 seconds
  • Connect the ac adapter without the battery
  • Turn on the computer
If the above procedure works,then you may reconnect all devices once the computer is up and running. Otherwise, I am recommending a full operating system re install.

I hope this helps, Thanks for using Fixya.

Blue power cord light is on, but computer does not power up or charge battery.


Hi,
you can try the following:
  • Remove the battery and connect just the AC adapter and try to boot up. If it works then install the battery, if not
  • Remove the battery and AC and press the Power button for 30 sec
  • Under the netbook, ( when turned upside down) on the right-side near the windows key sticker you will see small hole use a pin to press this button. This will reset your HW.
First 2 solutions worked for me. I had issue with my battery calibration. After leaving it 24h on the AC all back to normal.
Hope it helps

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
