Question about ASUS Eee PC 900 16G Notebook

1 Answer

Is this a common problem. Mine went blank yesterday with the F2 message. Can you boot it from the bios??? If so, how? I am going to take it to a shop when I can, I don't know much about these notebooks. Eee Machine900A notebook would not open yesterday. It has a black screen with a message at the bottom about F2, I got into some things with instructions (did not write them down and can't remember what they said), I tried to click on some of them but it wouldn't let me. Is there anything I can do?

It is telling you it could not process past BIOS to get to the windows power shell(windows actual operating system). If you do not have the factory windows disks follow the prompt and keep tapping F2 up and down until you see a window appear with usually options such as open from cd rom or hard disk.If you are not computer literate at this point power down the system and wait 20 seconds and power it back up while at the same time pushing the F8 key . This is considered SAFE MODE...can produce a list as well of options but look for -continue in safe mode- when you enter the computer will continue to windows powershell and will open to your main screen ..things will look a little different but it will function normally..when you are on go to the control panel and look for devices and click will populate a list of everything your computer needs to run ...if you see something in the list with yellow triangles red exclamation marks..these are things that must be order to correct the problem..At this point it is usually drivers have been lost to devices...but why? Usually you will find it is because of some crazy spyware or malware..which has infected your windows directory..if you have an Antivirus program run it ASAP..if not you can have one installed at a computer shop along wit h a complete new operating system which is the worse case scenario..40 to 60.00...easiest option get on the web and type FREE avg or avast and download it then run it...hope this helps some how...good luck

SOURCE: asus eee pc 900 notebook screen not working

Try plugging in an external monitor to see if you can get a picture. If you do, the problem is with your LCD screen.

It may be the LCD backlight. Shine a bright flashlight on the LCD and see if you can see your Windows desktop. If you can, it's almost certain the backlight is out.

Your best bet would be to pursue this as a warranty repair if so.

Press tab and see what message it's giving you. If it's date and time setup then go in BIOS (F2) and fix them up if it's RAM then reseat the RAM If it's no OS found then you need to install windows/Linux (else send it back to the person you bought it from)

How do I change the boot order on Windows XP? I

When booting, watch the screen. You'll see a message stating
"Press F2 for boot or DEL/F10 for set up"

If you choose F2, you'll update to boot priority for just the once, so if you want a permanent change, go for the set up option.

You will go into to bios, blue screen back ground. Read the instructions carefully, only change the things you know. You may have to go through a couple of screens until you find the boot order options.

Once changed press F10 to save and exit, the boot will then continue.

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen

I suggest you check the settings of your bios. Normally this happens if your Hard drive is unreadable. Change the settings of the boot function to first boot on Hard disk and try to disable all other bootable hardwares like CD or network card.

Hope this helps.

Need to get to setup menu

either the 64kb of bios memory is damaged and not allowing the system to pass the post check, or the processor is unable to find the boot.ini file because of a corrupt hard drive or file. The first thing to try is if you are using XP is to keep pressing F8 on start up and then when windows enters safe mode select the line 'Last known good configuration' and press enter for a restart, if there is nothing major wrong then the system will boot up. If it won't boot then you are going to need to set your notebook to boot from cd drive (F2 or del on boot up and enter the bios and change first boot device to cdrom) and boot up using your; or a borrowed Windows XP disc and perform a system repair. Post back for further instructions, as it may be the hard drive that is damaged.
