Hi all,

I have an Asus EeePC 1005Pe which I bought something like 6 months ago. Until now, it has been running without problems. Yesterday when moving files I noticed that no change within the opened window was visible, i.e. after deleting a file, its icon remained in the folder. It disappeared as soon as I exited the folder and re-entered it.

I usually set the laptop to "hybernate" and only rarely shut it down completely. I thought this may be important to mention.

Today the icon anomaly persisted. Then I thought to shut the laptop down with hopes to remove this anomaly. When shutting down the "disconnecting" screen remained up for several minutes and did not show any signs of progress, so i manually shut it down by holding the boot up button a few seconds.

Now here is the problem: when Hi all,

Now here is the problem: when attempting to boot up again, the computer freezes up with the eeepc logo and does not react to any command. It only reacts if I press f2 before the eeepc screen appears, and it brings me to the recovery screen, only to become unresponsive again. So basically I cannot do anything. I have already tried removing the battery and reinserting it, and then holding the boot button for 10 seconds, which allegedly should solve the problem, which is not the case unfortunately.

Does anyone know what I can do? Thanks for your help.

Hi there, yes indeed I have tried with just the power cable just now and the problem seems to be solved, thank you! At the time of my original post I did not have the ac cable with me. Do you know why this affected the computer not being able to boot?
