Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have bought an eee pc 4g linux, and have a 3 mobile broadband usb stick... I eventually managed to load this on to the machine and get it to recogise it, however when I now try and connect to the internet, it either tells me operation has failed or freezes the laptop altogether. Please help!! Should I take this back to the shop or is there something I can do differently!

    Problem being it was bought from Toys R Us and I can't see the 16 year olds that work there being able to help!!

    Does it sound as though just swapping it for another one would help??? I am not very technologically minded, it all goes over my head a bit, but really want to sort this out quickly.



    Thanks

How to make bootable USB Flash Drive with puppy linux installed on it


Hello!Almost everyone has problems with booting up. Sometime we have some valuable information on our hard drive and we can't boot up, can't start windows and can't transfer our files. There comes question: Can I somehow save my files in safe place? What can I do?One of the easiest way to solve this problem is to create USB Bootable Flash Drive. So we can boot up. then we have to transfer files from our corrupted hard drive to USB Flash Drive.
All you need is:1) USB Flash Drive2) Health (other pc) running on windows3) Software
So let's start!START HEALTH PC.First of all you have to download same small linux distribution. Puppy linux is excellent for this job. And it's FREE, simple, and exremally SMALL. You can Download Puppy linux from the following link:http://puppylinux.org/main/Download%20Latest%20Release.htmNote: When I wrote tutorial latest version of puppy was 5.2.0. But don't panic if our version differs from the 5.2.0. The principe of installing is Same
After downloading we have to download software to make USB Flash Drive bootable and to install Puppy Linux on USB. This software is UnetBootIn(Universal NetBoot Installer). You can download it from here:http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetbootin-windows-latest.exe
Plug in your USB.Now start UnetBootIn.Take a look at picture below:mirushaki.png
Note that Drive letter Is the letter for USB you plugged in. For checking go to My computer.
And click OK
wait a while and you are done when it asks for rebooting click Exit. rebooting isn't necessary.
FOR DOWNLOADING AND INSATALLING PUPPY ON USB WE USE HEALTH PC.
Now plug usb in corrupted PC and start the corrupted PC.When it starts, immediatelly press repeatedly ESC for (for asus EEE PC), F8(for some other computers) or F12. Try these keys. Then there comes window that askes you to select bootable device. Choose your USB.then there will come up Puppy Linux boot manager. Don't press anything let's see if puppy starts aotomatically, If not, restart pc, repeat the procedures above and when Puppy boot manager comes up press F3.Then type text below and press Enter:"puppy PMEDIA=usbflash" (or "puppy PMEDIA=usbhd" for USB Hard Drive).And puppy linux will start.NOTE: if it asks about language and time zone, also resolution select with your mind, but make sure that 22" LCD monitor resolution isn't too small(800X600)!)mirushaki.jpg

Now browse for files you want copy them to USB by Drag and Drop method and you are DONE! Now your info is in safe place.
Thank ou for viewing my tutorial.

Setting up a computer as a wireless internet router


for windows xp you man set up the connection via cable or bluetooth and ms active sync - the htc (windows mobile) is able to use the hosts network connection.
you may also set up an ad-hoc wlan on you eee and turn on internet connection sharing for your mobile broadband connection. if you connect your eee to the ad-hoc wlan it should be able to access the internet

Hi i have a asus eee pc laptop and i just bought a sierra broadband wireless but im not able to istall it can you help me/


eee pc has no Optical DIsk drive. hence either you need to buy a External USB Optical Disk Drive (costly) or copy the driver to a USB Pen drive using another PC.

This will be the best solution.

Anyone know how to get ASUS Express Gate to go online with Sprint's mobile broadband connection? It works great whilst in Windows but will not connect whenI try to use the Express Gate...Really appreciate...


The problem is that Express Gate uses a cut down installation of Linux embedded on the motherboard to allow you to boot the computer in a very basic mode to access the internet to check email etc. Linux supports most network cards but it will not natively support your USB mobile broadband device. I managed to get my Vodafone aircard working in Linux, but you need to add drivers and kernel support for it and i'm pretty sure that won't be possible with the embedded cut down Linux that Express Gate uses.....

ASUS 7 INCH 4G SDD 512MB DDR EEE PC 4G SURF PEARL WHITE (MODEL NO. 701) is this a good pc buy? also does this have a port where I can have an external dvd rom if I wanted to? a printer? is linux easy...


http://event.asus.com/eeepc/microsites/en/index.htm
Here is the specs for this unit, and it is XP compatible.
if you seriously want one of these, I would go with the 4g and not the 4g Surf. You get much more battery time, and after all this is for battery time, or you would get a laptop. Its a nice SMALL machine, but has VERY limited capability. Honestly its a glorified PDA. If you want a Computer that can do it all, invest in a laptop. You can get a very nice one for under $450 and get much more out of it.
