Help with my ASUS EEE PC netbook?

Postby thorndyke » Mon Jul 02, 2012 5:30 am

During startup, a black screen shows saying "check cable connection". I can't remember what else is written in that black screen but this shows every time I open my laptop. My laptop is functioning (although it's really slow. How can I fix this?) but I am still worried that there's something wrong which I am just ignoring. I need help. Thank you!

Help with my ASUS EEE PC netbook?

I am not sure I understand the problem. The normal "boot" sequence brings up a Gray page and then it goes on to the operating system. It sounds as if you are not "BOOTING" but returning from hibernation. If this is the case, many things can happen to cause issues. My initial suggestion is to actually "SHUT DOWN" the computer, unplug the power cord and remove the battery for about 60 seconds. Re-install the battery and then re-start the EEE-PC. If the error is gone then you're home free, if not we would need to dig deeper. Good luck!

(I am guessing that all you ever do is close the lid and never actually shut down the computer. )
