Vista is a SLOWWW OS, not much you can do about that other then go to a different version of Windows, i'm actually surprised anyone would be using it anymore. I would either go down to Windows 7 or up to Windows 8.1, as for the other causes, if its a Vista machine its getting pretty old, and with laptops and notebooks they see a lot of bumping around and over time the hard drives in them just start going bad and acting slower and slower. If the hardware was decent in it otherwise, good amount of memory and fast enough processor, i would put in a SSD and install a better version of Windows. Thats the long answer..

For the short answer, it sounds like you need to reinstall the drivers for your WiFi adapter. Should be able to download it from Asus support website. If you can't get internet on that computer at all, no wired ethernet port to plug in to get online, then download the driver on another computer and toss it on a thumb drive then take that to the laptop and install to get the WiFi working again.

SOURCE: Reformat and Start new

Unfortunately, you cannot download the OS. You can, however, download the drivers directly from the Gateway website.

Gateway usually sells restore disks after asking you some basic questions. The disk should run you ~$20. Go to and click on "Chat with Technical Support" and tell them your situation and what you need.

Good luck!

I'm trying to reformat my sister's notebook due to various problems. When I put in the XP install cd, which should give me the options I desire -after changeing boot sequence-. Just boots up Windows...

I have seen this b4 but only with a hard drive that was formatted with a third party partioning software like "patition majic" U can try using that software to add the new layering and retry your Win7 cd for another go.

AMD Puma-based Asus M51Ta stalls at power up, screen is blank.

Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios?
If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first.
Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.

If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.

Laptop shutting down

Leave your laptop on, without doing anything.
If it shuts down , you may be having an overheating problem.
If that is the case, remove the accumulated dust from the fan or fans, and try again.
(A vaccum helps here)
If no improvement, a deeper clean may be needed, which requires opening the laptop, and get to the heat sink area, clean and apply fresh heat release compund to the processor.

Vista Wont Boot.

the cause of this is because the devices connected from your machine was not been remove properly.

boot up your machine and hit F8 to boot into safe mode. if it doesn't work you need to reformat your OS because I suspected it has been corrupted. Before doing so, back up all your files because everything will be wiped out and will load to default factory settings.

you can use your hard disk as an external drive connected to other machine so you could back up all your files.

BOOTMGR is missing error, Tried reformatting, but computer shuts off randomly.

Your problem is not your OS its your hard drive, when hard drives go bad (bad sectors) they will almost always corrupt the OS. You could pay someone like 50 bucks to run a diagnostic on your hard drive but that is about half the cost of a new one. I would replace that and I am positive it will fix your issue. Unfortunately there is no way to see this coming.

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?

I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.
