Have you tried another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Has there been ANY damage?

Hi guys, i hope this could bring little light to this boot-stop error. First of all sorry for my english /slovakia/. So thi applies for asus eeepc 1005HA /maybe some other models too - depending on motherboard construction. In my case it was 2 parts motherboard which were conected via flex cable. Both parts contrains USB ports which is the think what stops you access to BIOS and all functions. If you hit TAB button during start up /best way to do so before pressing powerbutton/ you will see post messages, which stops on inicializing USB controlers. So what you need to do is
1. turn on computer
2.unplug flex cable which leds to usb ports
3. now you should see progress on your screen, so go to BIOS /F2/
4. visit ADVANCE tab
5. visit ide onboard configuration
6. check for usb controler configuration
7. mark it as DISABLED
8. hit F10 to save your settings

after this hint you will have full access to all functions like before, USB ports included.

hope this little research hlep u too, my eee1005HA is now glowing

If you can try Stephan's solution first.
If that does not work try looking at the actual manufacturer's web site for your wireless card. They may have them out before Asus does.

From the manufactures site, they only have VGA driver to support Windows XP. Did you upgrade your system from that OS?
It may work but if it doesn't, its best you downgrade back to xp. Here's the link for where to download it http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=Eee+PC+900HD%2fXP&p=20&s=1&os=29&hashedid=n%2fa

If you have just re-installed the operating system without installing the manufacturer's drivers from the CD that should have come with your computer, you do need the drivers. Some viruses disable network capability. Otherwise, the drivers originally installed should be there. Have you verified that the wireless is turned on? Most laptops have either software or hardware switches to turn off the wireless for battery power conservation. Verify that the wireless indicator LED is on. If it is not, find the switch and ensure it is in the on position.
If you are missing the drivers for both wired and wireless networks, go to the Asus support site (on another computer), select Downloads for your computer and download the drivers. Save them to a USB memory device to transfer them to your netbook, then install from there (you may have to copy the files from the USB device to the netbook's hard drive to get the installer to work properly). I would have given you a direct link to the driver, but you didn't tell me what your operating system is.

Hi Amanda.

When it is like that you usually need to reinstall the operative system (Windows or Linux). Try first turning off the netbook and removing the internal battery for one minute. I don't think that will work.

You can also try accessing the RAM modules in the internal slot and checking they are well in place. Do this with battery and power off. Do not touch the chip contacts. electrostatic discharge from your fingers can damage them.

If that does not work, then the system must be reinstalled. The unit does not have internal DVD player. The system is reinstalled using an external DVD player and an operative system install disk or using an USB disk where the OS install files have been previously copied. The system setup is commonly done at any local computer shop for a small fee.

Welcome to Fixya. Can you please provide the exact error that you have received and the operating system of the computer? I would like to know the changes made on the computer before this happen like did you run windows update or install a new software? Can yo check if you will be able to go to safe mode by restarting the computer and press F8 and see if you will still receive the error. Please provide the information needed to be able to fix the issue.

Make sure your mouse and keyboard are close to the receiver (the thing you plug into a usb port). Also make sure you plug the receiver into another usb port because maybe some of those ports are incompatible with the receiver or some ports may be failing. Last, make sure you install the driver (program that came on the cd for your equipment) on the computer.

To speedup your netbook follow these steps;
1. Remove if any apps in the 'startup' (like instant messaging, dictionary, world clock openoffice etc (just remove it from the startup folder) Make sure programs like these are not starting up when you boot up else your netbook will feel slow.
2. Be sure that you are running your spyware and virus scanners are working, updated, and have fully scanned your system. These malicious pieces of software can slow down a fast system. They will wreck the speed on your netbook if you aren't careful.
3. One upgrade that you can do to your system that is cheap and easy to do on your own is to add RAM. It's best to maximize your netbook's RAM for best performance.
4. Uninstall unwanted or heavy load softwares.
5. Don't have open programs that you aren't using minimized. If you aren't going to use a program, shut it off. Try to only have a few programs open at once.
6. Use cloud based applications. These are software that you can use that are being processed on a server versus your machine. This is a better way to multitask on your netbook.
7. Consider adding Linux or buying a Linux netbook versus a Windows netbook. Typically the Linux netbooks do run much faster as they are designed to take up less resources making your netbook run much faster.
8. Delete temp files.
9. Running heavy loaded softwares will make the battery hot, that way the battery life is shortened which causes a slow running netbook.
Hope this helps.
Please rate if this solution was helpful, thanks!

Try to boot to the BIOS screen/ system setup screen. Tap on F2 on the splash Asus splash screen. If the BIOS still shows this problem, it is a hardware failure. You will either need to replace the LCD screen of the video card of your laptop. To further isolate the issue, you need to connect an external monitor on the portable system while you are on the BIOS screen and press on Fn+F8. If the issue is seen on the monitor, then it is the video card, if the external monitor is clear, then it is the LCD screen.
However, if the issue does not occur in the BIOS, it must be the video card. Hopefully it is just a corrupted video card driver. Try to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver. If it does not resolve your issue, then it is the video memory of your computer. You still need to spend some money to have it serviced.
