Installing Windows 7 On Asus Eee Pc 900a Netbook


I am pretty technical when it comes to windows and i was able to install win 7 on multiple computers from a flashdrive by using diskpart. The real problem that i have now is that i am trying to install windows 7 on a netbook. To be more specific it is an asus eee pc 900a which has a limited ssd drive of 4gb (actual formatted space of course is 3. 8gb) it came factory with a linux distro but windows is far more superior so it will do what i want. Trying to install it straight on gives an error from the install that there is not enough space. How can i make it fit?

External Monitor On Asus Eee Pc 1005ha-m

I just bought an asus eee pc. It has windows 7, intel atom n270; 2gb ram and intel 945 express family graphic card. I plugged my external monitor (packard bell 190 w ab) in it through vga port. It works fine, but the screen resolution is not optimal! The best resolution would be 1336 x 768 60hz; which is the maximum. But windows only gives the option to choose between 800 x 600 and 1024 x 600 !?

I tried updating the driver for the graphic card, since the intel website learns me that there is a newer version of the driver. (Driver now installed is: 8. 15. 10. 1867) but this didn't really work. I tried updating the driver, selected the folder where i downloaded the file from the intel website and windows says that there is no better or newer driver available. Then i searched for a packard bell driver, but didn't find one on their website. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

Installing Win7 On Virus Infected Netbook

I am trying to upgrade an infected eeepc running xp to 7. I don't care about any data on the pc. When running a custom install from an external dvd drive, it asks where i want to install windows. No drives appear in the dialog box. A note at bottom says no drives were found. Click load driver to provide a mass storage driver for installations.

The options are to refresh (no avail) or load driver. I have searched both the hard drive and the install disk but it won't find anything acceptable. Any suggestions? Can i just start the install by starting from the install disc? How would i do that?

So what should i do to install windows 7 home premium on my darned netbook?

Netbook Activation Key Invalid

I was trying out some other operating systems on my netbook and uninstalled the factory windows 7 starter and was trying out ubuntu, jolicloud etc. When i went to put windows 7 starter back on my netbook it says my key is invalid. The key that is on the outside of my netbook doesn't work and says its for windows 7 starter.

I was wondering if the netbooks didn't come with the "actual" windows 7 starter but a different one just for netbooks and thats why i am getting this key error? If that is true is there a link to that iso image or installer and i could install that? I have a toshiba nb205 netbook.

Hp Mini Netbook Will Not Play Sound

My new netbook will not play any sound i recently purchased an hp mini and after setting it up, i discovered it would not play any sound. I've tried to troubleshoot the problem, but a message comes up saying that no problem was found. Neither the speakers or the headphones will play any sound. I've tested both and tried to play videos, but still there has been no sound. I also restarted my computer to see if it would help and it didn't. I've made sure my headphones work and the netbook could not have been damaged because when i found out about this problem i had just taken it out of the package.

New Netbook - Reinstall And Upgrade Pathing

I just recently bought an asus netbook that came pre-installed with windows 7 starter. It is my current understanding that i cannot reinstall this program on my computer (even if i had a bootable usb key) - is this correct? If it is not possible to reinstall windows 7 starter, would it be possible by purchasing the upgrade path to windows 7 home premium? Basically, i'm wondering what the minimum path is to get to a re-installable version of windows 7.

Netbook Cannot Start - Safe Mode Stops At Classpnp.sys

My msi u130 windows 7 starter does not start, merely gets to the loading screen (where you see the green flash going above the words microsoft corporation). Launch startup repair shows a white bar and the message windows is loading files before going to the loading screen. Launching os recovery does the same as above. Using safe mode hangs at 'classpnp.sys'. A variety of other safe mode options stop at 'classpnp.sys'.

I downloaded the windows 7 recovery disk iso and put it on a usb. After some problem with "ntldr is missing press ctrl alt del to restart" downloaded bootsect.exe, used that, then got a message windows is loading files and a white loading which, which, when complete, put me back tot he normal windows loading screen, zero other activity. Have tried to boot to a linux system off a usb to replace the classpnp.sys file with one i found on this xp machine, but can't get linux to start off the usb. So any ideas? With my main laptop with my wife i desperately need this netbook working, not least because it has office 2007 on it.

Asus G51v Driver Problems

I have an asus g51v (purchased at best buy, which originally came with vista, but i upgraded to win 7), none of it's drivers install. The usb drives, ethernet, wireless, and audio don't work at all. I have no solution so far. It appears to be a problem w/ the registry, i think somebody messed with that.

What i have tried:
-System restore (doesn't fix)
-Uninstalling, then re-installing via device manager
-Windows repair (doesn't work since there isn't internet)

Any ideas as to how to fix this?

Asus P5vd2-mx Motherboard Audio Device Driver

Audio device driver required - windows 7 64-bit - asus p5vd2-mx motherboard - cpu: socket 775 - audio device "unknown". Ok, as the title says, i need the correct windows 7 64-bit driver (fyi. Asus do not have any win7 drivers for my board except for bios flashers)
 
Previous: new computer (to me its new, it was my brothers) worked fine for him but came with all drivers pre-installed (he also used win7 64-bit)
 
I formatted the drive and re-installed win7 64-bit. It showed the device as working including in the device manager, however, no matter what i did i got no sound. I tried to find drivers online and found one saying it was the win7 64-bit driver, it installed fine but had to reboot to finish the install, o nreboot it gave an error as i logged back in (cant remember what it was now) and now there is no device showing up at all anywhere not even in device manager and not even showing "unknown device"
 
I have been to asus website and tried the win vista 64-bit audio driver for my motherboard and it says it is not compatible.

Note: i have been through the entire faq on the asus website and they have no useful information what so ever, as with the forums.

Note: have also checked in playback devices panel and shown disabled hardware. Still nothing
I have tried using sis software "sandra-lite" and it cannot detect any audio devices
 
If this is a bios version problem and i have to flash it, please let me know and if possible provide a link to the correct flasher. Ive not flashed a bios since 1998.

Asus En 9800 Gtx Graphics Card Trouble

I performed a clean install of windows 7 on my pc and now i have some major graphic performance issues. At first sight the graphics seem ok, but they are very very slow. Resizing windows, scrolling on webpages, or starting up a game all looks like i have a 1mb vga card. Even a 2d game runs on less than 1 fps. I have tried various drivers for my graphics card, even physically swapped it for an old 6800gt (same thing, but then again also the same drivers).

There is no abnormal cpu or memory usage and other than the graphics the system runs fine. The very same system worked perfect on xp and vista.system details:windows 7 pro 64 bit, directx 11. Sus striker ii formula mbintel core2 duo e8400, currently unlocked at 3. 00 ghz asus en9800 gtx graphics card 4 x 2gb ocz memory - 4gb dual channel did anyone experience this, and maybe have a solution to it?
