Question about ASUS F3Jc Notebook

1 Answer

Just bought a Eee PC 1000HA from a pawn shop, and when I charged it and turned it on, it goes to a bios screen that says at the bottom that the hard disk is locked. It ask's for user password or press ESC to switch to Master Password. I don't have either, so I call ASUS CS and they tell me that they need the SN # shown on the battery (no problem) and for me to fax over the invoice (PROBLEM). All I've got is the receipt from the pawn shop. They need the original invoice of sell in order to give me the master password. That or I've got to buy a new hard drive and have it installed. Hell I'm broke, that's why I bought it from a pawn shop and not brand new. It's a 2008 model so the F9 reset option won't work. If anyone has another suggestion PLEASE send it my way.

When buying things from a pawn shop, it is wise to check it out to see if it functions properly before you purchase it.
Hard disk passwords cannot be broken/hacked, and putting a new hard disk in the laptop may not work, this depends upon the BIOS password setup.
I suggest you try and return it and get a refund.

How to factory reset a eee pc 1000HA


One way to clear an Asus PC of problems or viruses is to restore it to its original factory settings. This will wipe the computer clean and give you a fresh start. The idea of restoring your laptop may be intimidating, but there is no programming involved. In fact, these laptops are designed to be restored in a short period of time.

Step Turn off the Eee PC. Press the power button or select the shut down option from the computer's main desktop screen.
Step Turn the unit on and press the "F9" when the flash (logo) screen appears. A menu will appear with a list of options to choose from.
Step Select the "Restore Factory Settings" option from the bottom of the list in the menu and type "Yes" when prompted to verify the reset.
Step Press "Enter" when prompted by the computer to reboot the system. Wait a few seconds for the system to reboot.
Step Follow the prompts on screen to accept the licensing agreement and configure your settings.

try unplugging from the mains, remove the battery, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. plug the mains adapter in and try turning on. if it doesn't work then it's either the power socket or the mainboard.
if it does work, then try it again with the batter in. if it stops working then your battery's shot.

How do i format my Eee pc 1000ha


You have to make a bootable stick with the desired operating system, or must have an external dvd rom and the operating system boottable disk. Make sure BIOS is set to boot from removable devices (press F2 when booting, modify: boot -> boot device -> boot device priority so you boot removable devices first, save the new BIOS settings).

To whom can help, The wireless is not working on my ASUS Eee PC 1000HA. It's working on every other laptop in my house so, it is turned on, it's just not working on my Eee PC 1000HA. Thank you, Dr.M.Seus


Right click the wireless icon in the lower right hand corner by your clock and click view available wireless networks. Then select configure advanced settings. Click on the wireless networks tab.
In the lower part of the screen select your wireless network and remove it. Reboot the laptop
Once back on, view available wireless networks again, double click yours and join it again. It may ask you for your password so make sure you have that handy.
