Yes you can use it anywhere. If you have a wireless router in your home you can use the internet there and use it at other wireless locations as well like the library.

Never go up one or two operating systems before researching what drivers are available for your motherboard on their site. Also see if 64 bit drivers are available. Once you find that win 7 is impractical to upgrade to then don't

To my knowledge it could be hibernate mode for laptops to save battery life when not plugged into the wall, try pressing the power button, my Compaq did that too. Also don't hold down the power button as after 5 seconds it just shuts off the laptop, unless you wanna do that.

Once / twice OK. Real problem only if recurring.

Sounds like a driver glitch, from the device manager, try uninstalling it, then do a hardware search, it will locate it and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't solve the issue, then the touch pad has failed and needs replacing.

If it ain't seeing the hdd then the hdd is likely a goner. I'd remove it and plug it back in just in case... These things use 2.5" SATA drives that are 9.5mm in height (or less), and they should be cheap - about 20-25 cents per gig retail. Yours should be a 200GB. Your local computer places should carry them, or you can buy 'em mail order on Amazon or eBay all day long.

The prompt is there to tell you that the hard disk no longer contains an operating system - the BIOS is fine. Try to reinstall using a recovery CD (order it from Asus if you don't have it) - if it fails then the hard disk itself has died and you must replace it.

Welcome to FixYa!
There are 2 process you could used when it come to cases like this:
1. If its the power settings causing this just follow this steps. Here are the steps:
  • Turn off your computer and unplugged all wires connected to it (including power).
  • Remove the battery from the bottom of the computer. There will be two tabs labeled 1 and 2.
  • Re-plug in the power wire. (the battery should not be in the computer) Turn the power on. The screen will work. Choose start windows normally. (if you get that screen).
  • Go to the start menu then click Control Panel -> (Mobile PC) -> Power Options -> Under Balanced choose change plan settings.
  • Choose Change advanced power settings.
  • Find Processor power management and change the minimum processor state from 5% to 100% for each On battery and Plugged in. Click Apply then OK.
  • Shut down the computer and removed the power cord.
  • Re-install the battery on the bottom of the laptop, plug in the power cord, and restart the computer.
2. If its the boot files being corrupted as the one causing this, you could used this as well.
First BACKED UP your files to an external hard drive using Puppy Linux. You could used this link: (
Once you are done backing up your file then follow this:
  • Booted up the computer and pressed and held down F12 (boot)
  • Insert the Toshiba recovery disc (there should be a disc one and two).
  • Selected CD/DVD from boot menu
  • Go to Toshiba recovery wizard then go to the second option (format/delete everything off of hard drive)
  • Restart the computer
  • Re-load the disc
  • Select Toshiba recovery wizard and then select the first option.
  • Once the wizard began, wait until it asked you to insert disc two. Continue from there.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like the graphics card inside the machine is over heating , i would check that all vents on the laptop are clear and unblocked , but if you have used this continually in this state then i doubt you will be able to repair it, as heating it up and then letting it cool down all the time will have done it no favours at all. The graphics gpu cannot be replaced so if cleaning the vents makes no significant impact then your laptop will need to be replaced

Grab a copy of :
EasyBCD is NeoSmart Technologies' multiple award-winning answer to taking control of your bootloader. EasyBCD extends and revamps the Windows Vista/Windows 7 BCD bootloader, and with EasyBCD, almost anything is possible. Setting up and configuring a dual-boot between Windows 7, Windows Vista, older versions of Windows such as XP & 2003, Linux, Ubuntu, BSD, and Mac OS X is a breeze. You just point & click and EasyBCD does the rest.
EasyBCD is geared for users of all kinds. Whether you just want to add an entry to your old XP partition or want to create a duplicate for testing purposes; if you're interested in debugging the Windows Kernel or septuple-booting your seven test operating systems, EasyBCD is the key.
  • Boot into XP/Vista/7/Ubuntu/OS X and more!
and if :

Your "BOOT" folder has been deleted, was not created, or has been corrupted; and the Vista bootloader will not show.
Solution Boot into a working copy of Windows and install/run EasyBCD.
Go to the "BCD Backup/Repair" page:


Select "Re-create/repair boot files" then "Perform Action" to begin recovery. EasyBCD will recreate (if possible) your boot files and re-configure your bootloader from scratch.
If EasyBCD fails, that means a process has locked your BOOT folder. Manually delete this folder with a Live CD, recovery console, or other method, then try Type Three again.

Since It starts OK in safe mode but not in normal bootup mode (which a lot or programs startup automatically and can be the cause of the normal startup problem). Did you install any new software before this problem happens? You may try using system restore to go back to the day before the problem started, it can be done in safe mode.
