Having problems with your ASUS Eee PC 900 Notebook ?

Asus will open the bios page with F2, but wont boot

\015 If F2 is not pressed after turning the computer on the bios message flashes on then the message 'error reading disk' is displayed and the xp operating system is not launched. The Asus minilap top is about 2 years old and has just started behaving this way. Should I just replace the Solid state Hard Drive and re-install everything?\015

Answers :

I wouldn't quite yet. Here's a solution that should fix this...First, I'm assuming that the BIOS is recognizing the hard drive in the first place? The BIOS should have a utility option to "auto-detect" the hard drive. If it does, then you most likely have a corrupted MBR (Master Boot Record).
\015\012
\015\012Here's my advise: Obtain a DOS-disc (windows 95 installation disc would do just fine) and once at the DOS command line at C: type the following command after the C
\015\012
\015\012C: fixMBR (then hit enter)
\015\012
\015\012this will move the MBR from sector 0 to the next available sector - 1.
\015\012
\015\012Now install the windows installation disk that came with the computer and perform a "repair installation"
\015\012
\015\012It will load all windows sys config files and boot files. It will seem as though you are totally reinstalling windows but you will not.
\015\012
\015\012At first, you follow the simple onscreen prompts to install windows and when you get to the point of entering R for repair...you don't want that yet...continue with install. on the next screen you will see a prompt for a repair installation - this is what you're after. Do not format any partitions and you'll be fine. If you cannot locate a dos disk, here's a link to download one and burn on a CD:
