Dear cobbsl00,

Whenever a system takes up to 30 minutes to boot, you may have a problem with the boot loader files, the Master Boot Record or the NT load files. If you are able to boot, immediately try to salvage any important data before it gets lost for good. Then try reloading your OS from scratch,

Good luck!

dear sir, for this problem you have to update your bios First you have to download the latest bios version of your Eee pc from the website of Asus( http://www.asus.com/ ) then select your country and go on service and click on support and then click on download.And then you have to select your product and download the bios of your Eee Pc and upgrade it by using Asus utility service software

Its an asus pc 1018series need to re boot how can i perform it


Your asus netbook should have come with a White restore dvd. You will need an external dvd drive to use it.
Just put it in and it will boot to the disk and begin the restore process. Follow the instructions and you should do fine.
If it didn't come with a restore disk, You can Load XP or windows 7 from new media. Every driver you will need is provided at asus' website. You will need to load the xp version of the touchpad utility, as well as the chipset and acpi drivers, even if you choose to load windows 7.
I'm using I Eee PC 1000HE with 2 gig of ram and a single core Intel Atom n280 processor, and it runs windows 7 just fine. If you need more help, reply, and I will help as muh as I can.

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!

My Asus Eee pc 900 is very slow booting. I disconceted the cmos battery and this helped for a few weeks but am now back to taking a good 20 mins to boot, Now the cmos trick wont work. Anyone got any ideas...


Sounds like you disconnecting the cmos and it helping was just coincidence.The hard drive may be bad or your OS needs to be repaired or reinstalled.Alot of times when it does as you indicated the boot sector maybe corrupt or your hard drive has bad sectors where the boot info was written on the hard disk

Asus Eee PC 2G Surf netbook fails to boot into OS


 Unfortunately Xandros is a paid (yes, you have read correctly , PAID) Linux distro. You will have to pay to get a Live-USB to reinstall.
Instead you should go here
http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,46097.0.html
  and follow the instructions to create your own PCLinuxOS (the one i use) Live-USB. You will need another pc for that. After booting from it all you're gonna have to do is to click on the Install icon on the desktop.

ASUS Eee PC 90 XP. Wont boot only displays vetical lines.


Did you try a external monitor to see is it works mine is doing the same think so I hooked up a external monitor and the computer is booting correctly i had to hit fcn and f5 for monitor to display. I think it might be a loose connection in the laptop.
