My EEEPc 900HA has been experiencing this exact problem: http://wiki.eeeuser.com/bugfixes:fixbios

And it is not responding to any of the suggested fixes (except the one about jumping the jumpers, which I cannot see on the 900HA).

Any suggestions?

No experience with a EEEpc, but I will diagnose like a regular laptop.

General power on but nothing loading, no beeps or anything else usually means faulty/currupt bios or hardware failure in general.

Have you changed any hardware recently or tried flashing your bios? Generally I find that on most laptops, rather than having beep codes, they just fail to start. If this was me, I would try reseating the memory, and also making sure the hard drive is firmly in (a few times I have seen it come slightly out the sockets)

If this does not help, This sort of problem should not randomly occur and the cause of it, unless known, is more than likely to happen again. If it is still in warranty, I would take it back / have it repaired.

Thanks for the response. Nothing seems to be helping it. This is the best response, so I'm going to mark it as such. –  th3dude Aug 28 '09 at 12:38

Thanks for bounty! Sorry id didn't help, but as I said, Forget the fact that it is a EEEpc, nothing you do (other than a failed reflash of the BIOS) should cause this error. If it occurs and you somehow manage to fix it, it is more than likely to happen again before to long. As much as I only listed RAM and Hard drive, it is worth taking a look to see if there is anything else that can be re-seated... however, if still in warranty, that is your best bet! –  William Hilsum Aug 28 '09 at 12:59
    
Unfortunately, I don't think it is under warranty. That's why I'm trying to self-fix. This may explain more to you what happened: The computer went to sleep with low battery. As it was sleeping, the battery died. That's exactly when the problem started. Let me know what you think. –  th3dude Aug 28 '09 at 14:52

reboot:

hit f2 - bios

  • Try disabling boot booster
  • Try restoring factory defaults

hit f8

  • Try booting to safe mode
  • Try loading last known good confirmation

It could be your Power Supply has failed.

Doesn't seem like it. I've tried both battery power and AC power and I get the same results. –  th3dude Aug 24 '09 at 18:59
