SOURCE: Notebook has not booted up

priorites for booting is OK but I assume the problem is with bootable disc. Maybe it's damage or it's not bootable at all.
good luck.

SOURCE: my dell dimension 4600 will not boot from cd drive first

Go back to the Dell BIOS screen and change all setting back to the default settings. Put in a Bootable CD and press F12, this will give you boot menu. Then you can boot to any device that you need to.

SOURCE: asus Eee PC 2G series will not boot up

Try to unplug the battery, wait 10-15 seconds and plug it again. Sometimes it gets stucked with hardware issues and this is a kind of "reset". It doesn't affect your data.

You don't need to access bios to change boot drive just hit escape key a couple of times when you power on and it will give you options for which drive to boot from.

I need to restart the netbook to go back to factory settings

You will need the following items:

1. External USB DvD Drive; Can be purchased from local retailer
2. Your Asus Eee PC Restore Disk; This should have come with your netbook. You can order an additional disk by calling Asus, 888- 678-3688.

3. Once you have the above items be sure all your photos, music, documents, data etc. are backed up to a flash drive or dvd. A factory restore of an Asus netbook will ERASE all personal data on the hard drive. You must back up the data on another device in order to preserve it!

4. Connect the external DvD drive to your netbook and insert the Asus Eee PC Restore Disk.

5. Restart the netbook and boot from CD (usually the default key to boot from CD is F12).

6. Follow the onscreen instructions that are on the restore disk.

7. After installation of all software, update windows and reinstall all your necessary software.

8. Enjoy!

When my asus notebook Eee 900 starts up it says WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ CONFIG\SYSTEM file is missing. How can i fix it?

Do you have your own copy of windows with the unit..
Ifyou do.. put cd in , reboot, F12 or delete while booting to get into bios. once in the bios. look for Boot Sequence.. CD should be #1 Hard drive the last...Reboot again... the scrren should say :press any key for cd boot"
As the cd boots sometime it asks thrre things Install windows
Copy files only
do you wish to repair
If you don't get the repair mode copy files only
It will tell you already have, do you want to overwrite.. Yes to all
Hope that helps you

Since that laptop doesn't come with a dvd drive your going to need to get one in order to install it. You'll go into the BIOS and change the boot order to the external dvd drive, your system will boot up off of it and then it will install it.

Problem regarding booting the laptop

first, check if the hard drive is detected on bios. if it's not then try reseating it. restart computer and enter advanced boot options (by pressing f8 upon restarting). select last known good configuration then press enter, if it still doesnt load windows, restart system and enter advanced boot options again and select safe mode. if it still doesnt boot then you need to reinstall windows.
you will need to get an external cd/dvd rom in order to reinstall windows.
you can try copying the windows disc content onto a flash drive and boot from it but that method is not guaranteed.

How to reformat asus eee pc

Normally laptops come with a restore disk(s). Simply put the disk in the drive, restart the pc and boot the pc to the disk.

If it won't say (boot to disk) automatically, simply press F2 when you turn on the computer till the BIOS loads up. Then change the boot order to CD drive first.

Once it boots to the cd the process will run automatically.

If this solution has helped you, please take the time to rate me.
