Hello, Long story short: my computer won't start up (properly). I'm running Windows 7 Starter on an Asus EEE 1005PE netbook. I've made no hardware or BIOS changes since purchase. The only peripherals I've used is a USB mouse (currently unplugged). The events so far: After a short period of inactivity, my computer appeared frozen on the desktop. No applications running; neither the mouse nor keyboard were responsive. After a short period of waiting, I did a hard shut down (held the power button). The next parts are hazy, as I have manually powered off and on a few times over the past hours. (I have also removed the battery and attempted to flash the BIOS by holding the power button while the netbook is unplugged, as well as letting the computer rest without the battery and unplugged). Upon powering up, the computer will run into a couple of different scenarios. What causes each scenario to occur, I am unsure. Typically, I will run into a grey ASUS EEE PC screen. I am given the options to "Press F2 to run Setup, Press TAB to display BIOS POST Message". Hitting either F2 and TAB provide no response. Either one or two events will transpire from here: 1) Nothing, at all. 2) After a few minutes of waiting, I will move on to a black screen which allows me to either Start Windows Normally or run Startup Repair. Both lead nowhere. I will either hang indefinitely on the "Microsoft Corporation" loading screen (with the green progress bar) or have the screen completely black, also indefinitely. Other times, I run into a black American Megatrends screen, which seems to list a few of my system specs. I know the RAM is deemed "OK," and nothing "BAD." However, it does state "Boot booster doesn't work at this time" at the bottom. This screen leads nowhere. I was able to load the BIOS once; not sure how, though. (As you can tell, I'm quite the amateur). I did not change any settings. I've attempted to load Safe Mode by hitting F8 after powering on, but no menu ever pops up. I should also add that I do not have a Windows disc, as this is a CD-ROM-less netbook with Windows 7 Starter pre-installed. Apologies for the hazy and possibly confusing recap. Hopefully, though, we can come to a solution! Thank you.
