Hi, My friend has recently had all sorts of problems with his little Eee netbook running XP. He is wiped everything off there and installed XP from an OEM CD so now has no sound and no wireless capability, i suspect down to not having the right drivers? I would like to use a recovery partition if it had one. Am i right in thinking that if i go to 'My Computer', the recovery partition would show there? Please help if you can- B

"Have you tried turning the wireless on by pressing the FN key plus F2? When you do, does the on-screen display show that it's enabled and does the wireless LED to the right of the touchpad come on?"

Ok, when i do that it shows a message saying 'Wireless LAN on' but nothing actually happens regarding wireless. Also, no LED apears to the right of the keypad as there is no LED there.

"That's a Linux page so you need to manually select your model on the Asus site and then choose XP. I think you've already done that though" Yes, that's right, i chose 'XP'.

What am i to do? This is driving me crazy!!

"Also, no LED apears to the right of the keypad as there is no LED there.."

I got that information from the Asus Eee PC 901 user manual. Never mind.

"What am i to do? This is driving me crazy!!"

In that case perhaps it's time to throw the towel in and get a USB WiFi adapter. Onthelimit1 recommended one recently:

"Posted January 18, 2012 at 1:07PM.......I've supplied a number of these. They only stick out about a quarter of an inch, and their performance is quite satisfactory."

Sorry Secret-squirrel, There is a wireless LED under the right hand side of the keypad and it is lit up light blue!

Ok, here is what SIW says: http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa214/craigten/NetbookSIW.jpg

Ps- the person im helping with this netbook may have messed with the bios, that wouldn't change anything would it?

Once you select XP in the box all your drivers show up.

Hi, I tried those drivers at the very beginning but had no luck im afraid. I've just tried them once again and still no good.

Having looked on google there seems to be various models of the Asus Eee PC such as the 1000H, 1000, T101mt etc. Which model do you have just in case there might be different wlan chips used?
