Question about ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD-MU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (AAS1001PXDMU17BK)

1 Answer

Whenever I lower the screen of my 1001PXD too much, it blanks as though I closed it. I need to tilt the screen very far back in order to keep the screen from blanking! Is there any way to fix this?

One of the hinges has already become loose, and I managed to snap it back into place. That alleviated the problem slightly, but it's still not as good as it was when I first got it. Obviously this indicates a hinge problem. Can anybody help me? I'm running Ubuntu Linux 11.10, if that matters.

SOURCE: asus laptop - screen went blank and will not turn back on

I'm assuming your screen shows nothing at all, even the bios or boot screen as it turns on.

If you can hook it up to an external monitor then your video adapter is working. Try using the vga output on the laptop. If it doesn't show anything use you display select feature. I'm not sure what button it is on your laptop but on mine it is Fn+F8 (look for a button that shows a laptop and/or a rectangle).

If you can see it with an external monitor, you should try to uninstall and reinstall the video adapter. After you reboot the computer hopefully it will work.

However, if it still does not work, you will probably need to reseat the monitor cable. Do this by opening the screen panel. on the back is a flat cable tat plugs in to the LCD. This is usually covered by tape. Carefully remove the tape, unplug the cable and plug the cable back in. Don't forget to replace the tape!
I have fixed two computers in the last two weeks by reseating this cable.

Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: can i fix my broken laptop.

Well, if the display comes on at all, then it must be a loose connection in the wiring. Sometimes this is a simple reseating of the main cable to the mother board which comes down from the display near or around one of the hinges (in most cases). I would suggest, purchasing a cheap external monitor, and plugging it into the rear or video out port if you have one, and switching your display to go to the external monitor, this will work good as a desktop scenario. Otherwise, you need to take it all apart and see if you can find out where the loose connection is, this is no easy task, and should be done by a qualified laptop repair person who has experience.

  • Or your window got corrupt.Reset the BIOS setting and reinstall the windows using boot able CD.

I had the same problem and from other forums I found that you have to remove the memory and short cmos . To short cmos I use screw driver to connect two copper pads.

Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

My Asus Eee PC 1001PXD battery won't charge. The charges light is on but nothing happens and now the battery is completely dead and I cannot get my notebook on


Your problem is far more than the battery. Your problem is the power cord. Laptops for the most part will work off the power cord even if the battery is dead or even if the battery is not in the laptop. Your power cord charges your battery and if it is bad it will not charge it. You've been working off your battery even though you might have had the power cord plugged in, but if it's bad and not charging the battery, the battery drains and then you can't get the laptop to power on at all. Go purchase a ac adapter and power cord that is designed for your system. Don't buy one that some of the big box stores sell that has a an interchangeable plug at the end designed to fit just about any laptop. Those will eventually burn *********** board out.

How far from thewall should a freezer be anddoes it need to be level


It needs to be reasonably level (10 degree tilt and it will still be fine. I imagine it will look awful long before the tilt affects the operation). As far as how far from the wall it needs to be, it will have plastic spacers permanently in place at the top, or centre at the back that will stop you getting it too close to a wall.

Shortage?


There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.

Random restarts, possible battery problem


stdnm11-

You should see about getting a new back cover. Try ebay, they run only a few dollars.

It sounds like you battery is coming loose a bit. Without the back cover snapped in tightly, there is a bit of room for movement for the battery. so when you snap it closed, the battery pops up of the contacts. If you know any one else that has a razor, try their cover to make sure.

Blank Screen and faulty shutter blades


I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.
