eeePC questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just bought a 1000HA (loving it so far ), and I have a few questions:
- How can I get the on-screen volume display to turn on? It was on the first time i booted, but is no longer shown when i use the FN keys.
- How can I get the first two hardware shortcut buttons on the notebook working again? again, it worked the first time, but no longer after
- How do I do a full system restore to the default asus modified windows xp? I have no recovery CD from asus, but i have my own xp cds.
- Would it be very difficult to install vista on this laptop? Are there drivers available?
- Can I use Dell Webcam Center with the Asus eeePc to get the special effects?

Thanks in advance

:: make sure you have all drivers installed, and also make sure you have not disabled asus processes and services from the startup

- How can I get the first two hardware shortcut buttons on the notebook working again? again, it worked the first time, but no longer after

:: again check the drivers, and reinstall if necessary (check asus website for the latest) and same as before, check that you dont have asus processes and services disabled

- How do I do a full system restore to the default asus modified windows xp? I have no recovery CD from asus, but i have my own xp cds.

:: im not too sure here, as i have the Linux version 901 with installed XP, but you could check that there is no hidden partitions on the disks (eg. "ASUS recovery" or smiliar.. if so it could be possible to just run a "restore" wizard like running safemode.. i dont have much experience on branded XP's so..

- Would it be very difficult to install vista on this laptop? Are there drivers available?

:: you can check the asus webiste for drivers, atleast on the 901 people have had vista installed and running, the graphics accelerator is even enough to run vista Aero

- Can I use Dell Webcam Center with the Asus eeePc to get the special effects?

:: as far as i know, the webcam acts as a standard USB webcam, so im pretty sure it should be possible

Thanks for answering

Anyways, I restarted my system, and what happens is the FN buttons work again. I searched around and have found that the CD that comes with the asus has a factory image on it that can get restored in case my computer is FUBAR'd. Also, I installed the Dell software and no go it will only work with a dell webcam sadly.
