Hi there, My Eee 4g pc 8.9 with Linux does not start up anymore. The power is there but the screen just flashes with odd graphics after "starting system" appears on the screen. I can not enter the bios or proceed any further. Is there anything i can do? Many thanks Martin

So windows 7 replaced with Linux, ok , cool.
as poster said , BIOS is first, PCs run with no hdd or ssd even present, BIOS is in ROM, (EEPROM flash and does not forget)
what fails on PCs or tablets are the batteries. first always first
batteries have short lives, chips can go 20 to 50 years,
your NVRAM is rated for 100 years, (have proof)
so we look at age first on any
Battery: Li-polymer Battery PC.
remove that battery , and run on AC pack first. (only(
BIOS ok now?
Some tablets the NVram inside may not have its own battery.
(it has one for sure but where it is IDK)
some Eee have what they call the CMOS reserve battery
we look first to find them and the voltmeter check them.

spec, helps no>?]]

    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.

    I've forgotten my password for Asus Eee PC 4g


    One of the advantage of any Linux OS is its tough security. Im afraid you have to reprogram you machine so that you can use it,  . and then maybe later you run a File Recovery software so that you can latter on recover your important files.
