Question about ASUS Eee PC 4G Surf

ASUS 4G Surf

I received the ASUS 4G Surf while in China as a gift. Very nice but one small problem....it is programed in Chinese Linux-OpenOffice-Firefox.

How do I get this unit converted to English?

    Thanks for the help. I've talked with ASUS USA and was told they have a recovery disk but may not be able to sell it to me because the unit was programed in China under some sort of license.
    I'am still waiting for their "official" response.
    By the way, this is a nice little computer. Linux is so much better than that lousy VISTA that is on my VAIO!!

One of two ways. A reload of the entire operating system may do it. However, I just encountered a similar issue involving a laptop from spain, the only way to get it to english was a setting in the bios and a translator. I hope the reload works for you, because I know the spanish translator we found was easier than finding the chinese translator you will need. You might try contacting Asus, they may be able to walk you through it by telling you what column or line to scroll down to and where to make the change, without the translation.

Need restore disk plus for eee 4g surf


There is no restore disk, there's a hidden partition on the drive that you use to restore the computer.

Here's a link to your model, check out Asus's support page for help.

That link is for the linux version but if you go to the top left and search for "4g surf" you'll get an option for the XP version.

Hope this info helps.

What internet browser can i download for linux , i need an updated browser but when i download firefox 3.6 it says its download but then it wont work ??? what should i do ???


Hi,

Try downloading Safari for Linux. Use Linux's Package installer to install it. If you download a Windows version then it won't install as Linux doesn't support EXE files.


Regards.
