ASUS Eee - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Sounds like you have a cracked LCD screen. Cracked lcds can result in white/black/lines, etc. To be sure, hook up an external monitor and see if that shows a proper image.

hello hyjacker this post and OPS other identical post on why F2 repeats, this is COMMON !
first take out that relic and bad large battery.
run on AC pack only, still dead?

the PC is now 9 years old
the RTC COIN CELL BATTERIES, mostly do not go past 7 years, seen 10 happen, but is not PAR,
life span is 5 to 7 years.! facts.
so replace that first,
then reset bios next.
and test on AC Pack only, until the PC runs right again do not use the useless 9 year old HUGE BATTERY, oK?
then make sure boot order in BIOS
shows HDD , in the list.
or the HDD is dead.

the coin cells dead will cause many PC
to stick at BIOS screens, after all it cant find the boot order configurations with that battery dead.
once that is cured, you can boot windows
if the HDD still works.
on some pCs you can hit F2 and it loads BIOS defaults and boots.
but after powering down, all that is lost and all this above repeats.
the service manual on your PC covers this.
but I can not find that manual anywhere...
how to replace your RTC Coin cell.?
here it is, remove any hatches to reach it.
RTC is on the bottom
see yellow blob this is your exact mobo.
this is the bottom side of mobo
open hatches on bottom of PC to gain access.
I see 1 huge hatch in our manual, at asus.
no 2 laptops are the same unless they are exact model. so learn to find it using below photo.

check using the onscreen keyboard or you can also check with an external keyboard to see if the same issue occurs with those. if it does the issue could be a software related. you can go to device manager, under keyboards uninstall the Keyboard Device and restart the computer.

you replace them both, there is no magic reconditions on batteries like this. one is the big battery and other is the coin cell.
youtube has the 1005ha dismantle if you want to watch.

Notebooks are not the best computers for gaming, but if you have nothing else you can:
~make sure all programs are closed (including background programs)
~set the game settings to lowest quality
~if you have an external monitor unplug it and use just the notebook screen
~upgrade you RAM

Hello Machatsiduba, It's likely that the network card is capturing some radio signals phones close to your geographical location. Specifically, the Wi-Fi controller can cause this problem; I recommend you follow these links to solve this problem. 1)

If you have a Windows password reset disk, you can easily reset your Windows password with it. If not, you can follow the steps to create one. You just need an available computer linked to the Internet.

Step 1: Download and install
Windows Password Breaker with the available computer.

Step 2: Run the program and burn a Windows password reset disk. It could be burned onto a CD/DVD OR USB flash drive.

Step 3: Turn to your locked computer, insert the newly created CD or USB to your drive. Reboot the Computer and reset the Windows password.

It is easy and safe to use.

Are you still having the issue with the wireless connection?

ASUS Eee PC 901... | Answered on Nov 19, 2018

To reset my 901 XP, I remove the battery as shown on page 3-3 of the instruction manual.
The reset button can now be accessed: it is a small shiny metal
plate, about 3mm by 15 mm located on the left of the battery compartment (closest to the LAN port).
Press the metal plate once with a ballpoint.

Check the manufacturer website for you model laptop - verify if it's not an LED screen. If it is then you'll need to replace the screen - LED screens don't need an inverter.

ASUS Eee PC... | Answered on Nov 14, 2018

The BIOS are separate from the operating system. After a control/alt/delete you should be able to get a new fresh start up whereby hitting the Del key or F Keys above (10 or 12 usually) you should get to the BIOS Setup pages. If need to make changes to the computer, do so there. If you cannot bring up the Operating System, you may be required to put the OS Disk into the CD/DVD drive and restart the computer hoping the CD drive is recognized and go from there. If Linux fails, you will need Windows 10 operating system.

ASUS 8.9" Eee... | Answered on Nov 14, 2018

better list?
1: make sure wifi card is there first. or all this is a waste, ok?
2: reboot modem. if all devices in home using wifi are dead.
3: reboot router, if not part of modem above, for same reasons.
4:use Ethernet wired first. get that working first so you can connect to the internet and get drivers missing for you wifi card, inside.
now that internet works we may see XP actually find drivers automatically, using its PnP engine, but XP is dead, now at Microsoft dot com. dead as door nail. but hope springs eternal for XP (not)
The Device manager must show the wifi card is present and
not bleeding red errors, yellow errors or listed UNKNOWN.
IF is bad there, then the driver is missing bad corrupted or the wrong one loaded.
finding xp driver 99% of the time nets you a virus
most sites that say free drivers are malware sites feeding off the bones of the last few XP users on earth. (sad to watch)
I do have safe drivers. they are here. (I do not work there)
but takes skill to use. (I download them)
then I use on the package, it is clean !
ask for help or post the photo of you wifi card so I can read the sticker and tell you what you have and what drivers are possible.

here is the one known safe site for such relics. WLAN.
version 12 should have your driver but is stored in torrent free site.
as you can see there are vast wifi chips used.
that is why I use DM (properties IDs) to find the true name.

dev-id-1vbx0tmk5jh3hk3cmdz40urc-2-0.jpg there are 3 ways to ID the wifi card
1: read is label sticker (eyeballs do not lie)
2; use DM and details tab above.
3: run HWinfo32.exe portable, (free ) run it and it tells you if wifi is there and what chips it is, maker of chip and model.#

XP is dead forget XP
what do you do, answer upgrade, it or buy PC with w7 up on it.
end story.

run VLC, from makers site not others.
ok> VLC is the player that works, here.
avoid all others, unless paid for , PRO grade. ok?

XP is virus magnet, there will be no future with XP ever.
nothing but endless pain, labor, delays, and horror.

The fault may be a broken ribbon cable that connect the screen to the motherboard. Less likely is that the connector is loose on the motherboard. The connectors are normally very well seated and don't normally come loose.

One thing that you must do, is that if you can get the screen working, even once, save all your important files and pictures onto an external device, such as a USB stick.

ASUS Eee PC... | Answered on Nov 05, 2018

the ASUS box has a white sticker on the new box. clearly showing this fact.
the motherboard, has sticker to ,for the same thing,
same answer, in the BIOS info screens, the serial will bet there
and a UUID, serial, that Microsoft uses, to block activation.
there a mAC too.
you did not say why you need this, so lacking context we guess.
omg a gaming laptop...
ASUS Rog 750 g750jw
on laptops in general, its on the bottom of the case
on some remove the battery pack and its a sticker inside there.
on newer laptops, the deleted stickers (deemed ugly)
so is deep hidden. BIOS pages are it.

i look at your mobo, and see only stickers on the ram slots
so open the ram hatch and look?
i redacted it a bit, to make it neutered.
PN: not this.
PT? i guess not.
lower right, side is my guess, on SN. 69N-bla bla
