This is because of
The Human Interface Device (HID) is not configured to wake the computer when you press a key on the keyboard or mouse.

RESOLUTION

Use Device Manager to troubleshoot possible hardware configuration problems on your computer
In Device Manager, look for marked problems with devices. If there is a problem with a device, it is listed in the hardware tree under Computer.

Additionally, the problem device has a symbol that indicates the type of problem, for example a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device is in a problem state. Note that a device that is in a problem state can function.

A red X indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device that is physically present in the computer and is consuming resources, but does not have a protected-mode driver loaded.

A blue i on a white field on a device resource, in Computer Properties, indicates that the Use Automatic Settings feature is not selected for the device and that the resource was manually selected. Note that this does not indicate a problem or disabled state.

At the top of the property sheet, there is a description of the device. When you click the Resource tab, the window in the middle of the tab indicates which resource types are available for the selected device.

The list box at the bottom contains a Conflicting Device list. This list indicates a conflict with an error code. If any devices are listed as having a conflict, disable the devices in Device Manager. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
2. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box, and then click OK.
3. Restart your computer

If no devices are listed as having a conflict, follow these steps to disable devices in Device Manager:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. On the Hardware tab, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
3. On the Device Manager tab, disable all devices under the following branches:
• Display adapters
• Floppy disk controllers
• Hard disk controllers
• Keyboard
• Mouse
• Network adapters
• Ports
• PCMCIA socket
• SCSI controllers
• Sound, video, and game controllers

To disable a device in Device Manager, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box , and then click OK.
c. Restart your computer.
4. If the problem is resolved, enable the devices that you disabled in step 3, and then verify that no devices are conflicting.

Note Enable devices in the following order:
• COM ports
• Hard disk controllers
• Floppy disk controllers
• Other devices
To enable a device and look for possible conflicts, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to enable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to clear the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box.
c. Click the Resources tab, and then verify that there are no conflicts listed under the Conflicting Device List.

Note that the Resources tab does not appear for each device.
d. Click OK, and then restart your computer.
If this resolves the issue, contact the manufacturer to update the device driver. for the keyboard

Hi there guys, Well i bought an asus VX2S laptop a few years back and haven't had any problems with it since until last night. When i power her up she boots up sweet as always, revs sound clear, cpu...


Hello,

I'm currently using an Asus K42F laptop. I had that same problem. If your computer does not show anything on the screen like the Asus logo, then it's probably a hard drive issue like mine. So you really need to use some $$$ for that.

If you see the ASUS logo or something on the screen and it just goes blank when it's going to windows, then you can do this.

Restart the computer and tap F8. You can find an option that says "SAFE MODE". Use your arrow key to highlight it and let it boot to safe mode. When you are inside safe mode, do a system restore so that it can go back to the date when it was still working great. (I'm reffering to the setting date). Let it restart and check.

If it works after doing the troubleshooting, I suggest that you install Radarsync so that you can avoid from getting that same problem or any further issues with your computer (driver related).

Thank you very much for posting.

If you have any questions or if you need further assistance, please drop me a line.

Reset asus eee top to factory setting


Open the display on your Asus and click the "Shut down" tab in the lower-right corner of the desktop.
Click "Yes" when prompted, to confirm.

Power on your laptop, and press the "F9" key when you see the logo screen.
A menu will pop up with a list of three options.
Select the "Restore Factory Settings" option (which is the last one in the menu).

Select "Yes" when prompted, then hit the "Enter" key to confirm the reboot.

Wait about 30 seconds for the system to restart, then agree to the licensing agreement when prompted.

Confirm your name, password and time and date when prompted.
Then wait as your computer configures.

hope this helps

On my asus Eee Pc 1201HAB the display shifted to the left so the left side is partially cut off, how do i fix it?


1) Looking at the User Manual right now, and do not see a Hot Key on the Keyboard, that shifts the display.

[ Hot Key is also known as Special Key. The F1 through F12 keys at the top of the keyboard, and also for your model, colored keys on the keyboard ]

It could be the Screen Resolution is messed up. Not set at the correct settings.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
At the bottom of the drop down list, click on Properties.

In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

The screen pixel resolution should be set at 1366 X 768,

http://www.screentekinc.com/Asus_EEE_PC_1201HAB--12.1-inch--1366x768-wxga_hd-laptop-lcd-screen.shtml

In the middle of the Display Properties window, you see the blue subheading - Screen resolution

Right under this small subheading is a Slider.
The Pointed 'arrow' with the green tip, and top, slides back, and forth on the 'line'.

It should state 1366 X 768.
If it does not;

A) Left-click on that green tipped Slider. Hold the left mouse button down. Move your mouse, and move the Slider. (Drag)
Move it to the Left to Decrease the screen resolution, or to the Right to Increase the screen resolution.

Can't set it to 1366 X 768? Post back in a Comment.
ALSO, the Color Quality should be set to -
Highest (32 bit)

If not click on the blue down arrow to the right of this box.
In the list left-click on Highest (32 bit)

Now go below to the right, and click on Apply.
After go below to the Left, and click on OK.

Still no joy?
Believe the problem is hardware related.

Could be something as simple (?) as a bad Video Cable.
(Goes from the motherboard, up under the left Hinge, and then up into the Display Assembly)

Could be the screen Inverter.

However the Eee PC 1201HAB is supposed to use an LCD panel, that has qa series of LED's for backlighting.
Newer backlighting that uses a series of LED's for the Backlight, doesn't require a screen Inverter.

There were some LED backlit LCD screen, that DID use a screen Inverter. Mostly the older models of laptops.
This is what makes me think your LCD screen's Backlight, (And LED), may use a screen Inverter,

http://www.batterystyle.com/asus-eee-pc-1201hab-screen-p-168219.html

Scroll down,
"5. Disconnect the power cable and video cable from the Asus EEE PC 1201HAB Lcd panel. The power cable connects the screen's power source, the lcd inverter, to the backlight lamp attached to a side of the panel."

Probably just a generic form, and didn't take in consideration that the Eee PC 1201HAB netbook, uses a series of LED's, as a Backlight.

May not have a screen Inverter.

To explain;
Primer:

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

(Click on the window with the computer monitor in it )

It needs an additional light source. A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.

[ LED = Light Emitting Diode.
CCFL stands for Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

{Average thickness of a CCFL bulb is 2mm. That is a a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
The average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height]

A screen Inverter is used to CONVERT the power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

Do not see any listings for an Asus Eee PC 1201HAB netbook, for a screen Inverter. Believe the LCD screen uses LED's for a Backlight, and does NOT use a screen Inverter.

Which means if the problem is in the Display Assembly, the LCD screen itself will need to be replaced.
The LED backlighting is built-in.

[Hmmmm, I see a trend going on here that I do not care for, and just woke up to it. Have to replace the entire LCD screen, and cannot just replace the Backlight, or screen Inverter? Sounds like Ka-ching $$$$$ for somebody!

A screen Inverter usually averages from $20 to $40+.
A Backlight ( CCFL) usually ranges from $10 to $15.
An average LCD screen can range from $80 to $300+.]

How to know if the problem is in the Display Assembly?
Use a VGA monitor, and connect it to your laptop.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF. Connect a VGA monitor's cable to the VGA port on the laptop.
(Left side rear. This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector { Port on a computer },

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

You can use an older CRT type of VGA monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable attached.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should automatically show, on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least three display options:
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press the Fn key down, and hold it down. At the same time tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
(Give it a few seconds. Sometimes it doesn't happen right away)

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F8 key.

Is the display off to one side on the external VGA monitor?

How do you clean a keyboard from an ASUS laptop without breaking the mechanism?


Compressed air works well, blow it sideways across the keyboard, so that particles are not blown into the laptop.

If the keys needs cleaning, use a alchol soaked cloth and wipe light over the keys.

Bootup problems


AS you boot up, try tapping the F8 key until you get a window giving you the option of multiple types of boots. Use the safe mode boot.
Then do a system roll back found in your system tools.

Hello.


First thing, is the laptop getting very hot very fast? possibly dust in the ventilation blocking airflow or other component level issue causing overheating.


2nd, have you tried using the recovery discs? does the problem remain even after a fresh install?



Check these two things and report back.


Thank you,
