PC, Laptop or Asus Eee PC suddenly doesn't start up anymore

General Gaming News

by Claire Claws

My Asus Eee PC netbook suddenly kept hanging, at start up,  in the black screen with blinking block.

So I searched for hours why my Eee PC only wanted to start up after the battery got removed and Unplug+Plug in external power.

A lot of Eee netbook users have the same problem, that I know now, but I couldn't find an answer on how to fix this. But I didn't give up....


 

For Windows users, a blue or black screen at boot-up can be an indication that their PC is infected with TDSS.

And because the Eee PC could still start up after the battery removing etc. I could use the free Kasperky's TDSS Killer

Plus I removed this qtplugin.exe file that was hiding in my C:|Windows|System32 folder. I spotted that one by having a look at the running processes with Window's Taskmanager.  I stopped it and removed the file from the System32 folder.

My Asus Eee Pc is now fixed and I hope this helps to fix yours as well.  GL !

General Gaming News

by Jonas

Move all your Steam Games to an other drive and they all carry on working !  You no longer have to uninstall games to get enough disk space on drive C: for that latest game.

Steam Mover v0.1 is a Free software application.

Have you run out of space on your C: drive? Or do you have a super-fast SSD that is too small to hold all your steam games at the same time? Then try Steam Mover.

Paul Traynier has created this little app to make moving the files and creating the junction points much easier !

Example Use

A Steam folder in the default location and Steam Mover finds it.  If not, select the |Steam|SteamApps|Common| folder yourself, and a secondary hard disk D:, where you have created a new folder.
