Asus Eee PC 1005HA - Windows won't Start

I own a Asus Eee PC 1005HA. When I try to start it, a black screen always pops up tellin me that 'Windows did not start successfully.' It gives me the options of: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration, and Start Windows Normally.
However, no matter which option I choose, it keeps taking me back to the same black screen with the same 'Windows did not start successfully' and those five options.

Please teach me how to fix this. Thank you!

Same problem here. I know on most Windows XP installs, you can just boot to recovery console using any method you like and run "chkdsk /r" which typically fixes the problem. However on my Asus eee PC 1005HAB, I haven't found a way to load the needed SATA drivers during a boot. I've tried custom BartPE's on USB Flash drives that include universal storage drivers, I've tried UBCD4Win. The furthest I get with both of these methods is the BartPE or UBCD4Win gets to the desktop and the mouse pointer can move, but the Start button never appears. The only bootable that seems to even detect the hard drive is the WinPE.iso that comes with the Asus, but this only gives the option of a complete factory restore which will delete existing data on the hard drive. Does anyone have a way to run "chkdsk /r" for a Asus eee PC 1005HA or 1005HAB if you cannot start Windows? How about, does anyone know a way of editing an existing WinPE ISO so that it can start a command shell to allow the running of chkdsk?

The Blue screen you see is a BSOD from XP, which is set to automatically restart on that kind of error. Unless you can pause the screen or read what the error is, it may be hard to see what the problem is.

I suspect that you can NOT get into the Safe Mode option?
On that chance that you can, go into Control Panel and go to "System" and then the "Advanced" tab. Click "Settings" under Startup and Recovery. Then UNcheck "Automatically Restart".
This will let you see that Blue Scree so you can research the error. Then restart.

The first thing I would do is remove any new hardware that might have been installed, unplug any external devices like printer, scanner, camera, etc... and then try it.

If that doesn't work, put in that XP CD again and go into the CMOS setup and make sure the Boot Order is set to try that BEFORE the hard drive. With the CD in, when you restart, you should see a message "Press any key to boot from CD...". If you DON'T get that message, change the BIOS.

Once in the XP setup from the CD, go to Recovery Console. Once logged in there, run "CHKDSK /R /F" and see what happens.

good luck

Each time I start my eeepc 1005HA, time/date has gone. This sounds like a CMOS battery dead. I expect you give me what I must buy and how I can replace the battery. Thanks a lot.

you should change your cmos battery. the model is ML 1220. don't buy the CR 1220 because it is not rechargeable. I hope this helps. I also have the same problem with my asus eee pc 1005HA.
