Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook

1 Answer

BIOS Crash My EEE PC was having BIOS problems such as not seeing the USB devices when attached and it would just start malfunctioning during use of the USB devices. It was in the process of a BIOS update and the entire system just crashed entirely. Now, it doesn't do anything at all. The power light comes on, sometimes the WIFI light briefly lights up, but I get nothing on the screen period. I followed some of the advice from form users that told me to download a BIOS to a flash drive and start the system with the flash drive plugged in and wait about five or ten minutes then restart. Nothing happens. When I first start the machine, the flash drive lights up a few times and then I still get no other activities from the machine. Since it has been modded (it worked after the mods) I'm assuming that ASUS will not honor the warranty. I would appreciate any help or advice. Thanks.

ASUS will probably not honor the warranty in this situation. And even though the computer worked for a short time after the mods there is a legit possibility that the mods did cause the computer to eventually fail (and during a BIOS Update.) Sorry man. It looks like you bricked your system from that last BIOS update. Your only chance is to remove the EEPROM from the motherboard and replace it with one that has the correct firmware flashed.

Good luck.

Free usb reboot


You might want to boot from a USB device, like an external hard drive or a flash drive, for many different reasons.
When you boot from a USB device, what you're actually doing is running your computer with the operating system that's installed on the USB device. When you start your computer normally, you're running with the operating system installed on your hard drive - Windows, Linux, etc.

How To Boot From a USB Device
Change the BIOS boot order so the USB device option is listed first. The BIOS is rarely setup this way by default.
If the USB boot option is not first in the boot order, your PC will start "normally" (i.e. boot from your hard drive) without even looking at any boot information that might be on your USB device.
Tip: The BIOS on most computers list the USB boot option as USB or Removable Devices but some confusingly list it as a Hard Drive option, so be sure to dig around if you're having trouble finding the right one to choose.
Note: After setting your USB device as the first boot device, your computer will check it for boot information each time your PC starts. Leaving your computer configured this way shouldn't cause problems unless you plan on leaving the bootable USB device attached all the time.
Attach the USB device to your computer via any available USB port.
Note: Creating a bootable flash drive or configuring an external hard drive as bootable is a task in itself. Chances are you made it to my instructions here because you know whatever USB device you have should be bootable after properly configuring BIOS.

  • Restart your computer.
  • Watch for a Press any key to boot from external device... message.
  • On some bootable devices, you may be prompted with a message to press a key before the computer will boot to the flash drive or other USB device.
  • If you do nothing, your computer will check for boot information on the next boot device in the list in BIOS (see Step 1) which will probably be your hard drive.
Note: Most of the time when trying to boot to a USB device there is no key-press prompt. The USB boot process usually starts immediately.

  • Your computer should now boot from the flash drive or USB based external hard drive.

Asus eee pc 900 netbook will not boot. Error message says remove disks or other media press any key to restart


Hi guys, i hope this could bring little light to this boot-stop error. First of all sorry for my english /slovakia/. So thi applies for asus eeepc 1005HA /maybe some other models too - depending on motherboard construction. In my case it was 2 parts motherboard which were conected via flex cable. Both parts contrains USB ports which is the think what stops you access to BIOS and all functions. If you hit TAB button during start up /best way to do so before pressing powerbutton/ you will see post messages, which stops on inicializing USB controlers. So what you need to do is
1. turn on computer
2.unplug flex cable which leds to usb ports
3. now you should see progress on your screen, so go to BIOS /F2/
4. visit ADVANCE tab
5. visit ide onboard configuration
6. check for usb controler configuration
7. mark it as DISABLED
8. hit F10 to save your settings
9.reboot

after this hint you will have full access to all functions like before, USB ports included.


hope this little research hlep u too, my eee1005HA is now glowing

I have a disk crash on an ASUS computer, 3 years old. The Disk is a SATA. How can I get my machine to boot ?


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

From the problem you describe, it sadly looks like the USB controller has failed on the motherboard. If ALL your usb ports are malfunctioning, there is no other solution than to replace the motherboard.
You can check in CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / DEVICE MANAGER and see if there is a yellow ! mark next to the usb controllers (there may not be, this is not guaranteed). I have had this happen on netbooks before and after trying to locate the problem, was forced to replace the motherboard

Go to your BIOS by pressing the delete key as your computer boots up.
Find boot disk priority and set first boot device to your hard drive.
