Can you connect through a "wired" connection? Is your router connected to the Internet? If you're using wireless encryption, have you told your netbook what that encryption key is?

Cant start after BIOS update

It sounds like the boot sector on the hard drive and a bypass of the Bios. Pull the hard drive and try to set the BIOs. See if that works for you.

My notebook hardisk is too small (8GB, ASUS) can I upgrade my Hardisk?

Yes you can BUT the maximum size you can update the hard drive depends upon the BIOS.
Alternative you can use an external USB hard drive to store your data and this is not restricted by the BIOS.

Go to your BIOS by pressing the delete key as your computer boots up.

How to recover linux for EEE PC 4G

Simple, You need to get a USB - DVD Dongle, & your backup DVD that came with your unit. Inset the DVD, and boot of it, you need to access the BIOS and set the drive boot Up options, to boot from external USB connected, DVD, it MUST be all plugged in to show this. Then save settings and reboot. Follow instructions & then it will simply perform a complete restore. Now if you can't or don't want to use a USB-DVD, then you will have to make a Bootable USB Key, transfer the contents of the DVD to it and set to boot from that and do so, and install that way. There are a number of tutorial showing you how to do this.

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,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.

How to reformat asus eee pc

Normally laptops come with a restore disk(s). Simply put the disk in the drive, restart the pc and boot the pc to the disk.

If it won't say (boot to disk) automatically, simply press F2 when you turn on the computer till the BIOS loads up. Then change the boot order to CD drive first.

Once it boots to the cd the process will run automatically.

If this solution has helped you, please take the time to rate me.
