Top 20 ASUS Eee PC 1000HE Netbook Questions & Answers

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.

Hi Ali.
you could try this or go to the link at the bottom and have a read up of what else you could try.
Push the computer's F9 button until the Recovery System window appears. Choose the option for Windows Setup and select Recovery. You should see a message disclosing that you will lose all your files in the process as the Recovery puts the machine back to its original factory settings.

You can only disable the master password within the BIOS. Select Master Password when in BIOS, type the password and then change it to a blank window. That will remove the password.

First thing I would do is pull the battery and the ram chips out. Wait a few seconds then reseat the ram chips and the battery. 9 times out of 10 this will fix your display problem. If it does not than you are looking at a more serious problem such as , motherboard, LCD display or ribbon cable.
