The Asus Eee 901 XP is a notebook computer that has become popular because of its compact size. This computer is able to be made so small because it does not have a CD drive, which can be roughly half the size of a laptop. While resetting a computer to factory defaults without a CD drive may be a foreign concept to some, is it not difficult to accomplish.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Restart the computer and press the "F9" key on the keyboard during the boot-up process. You will have about one second to react and press this button once the first image appears during the boot-up of the computer. If you miss your chance, you will need to restart the computer and try again.

  2. 2

    Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to scroll to the "Start System Recovery" option, then press "Enter" on the keyboard.

  3. 3

    Answer the set-up questions when prompted. Check the status of the system-recovery process every couple of minutes because you will be prompted to answer some set-up questions during the recovery process.
