Resetting a standard laptop to its original factory settings can be a highly technical and time-intensive process. But because the Asus Eee PC is a netbook that is smaller than most laptops, and with fewer programs, the process of restoring it to its original settings requires fewer steps and technical knowledge. No disassembly of your computer is required.


Step 1

Open the display on your Asus and click the "Shut down" tab in the lower-right corner of the desktop. Click "Yes" when prompted, to confirm.

Step 2

Power on your laptop, and press the "F9" key when you see the logo screen. A menu will pop up with a list of three options.

Step 3

Select the "Restore Factory Settings" option (which is the last one in the menu).


Step 4

Selct "Yes" when prompted, then hit the "Enter" key to confirm the reboot.

Step 5

Wait about 30 seconds for the system to restart, then agree to the licensing agreement when prompted.

Step 6

Confirm your name, password and time and date when prompted. Then wait as your computer configures.
