What is it and why does my Asus netbook EeePC 1005 PEB say it "doesn't work this time" when I open up my netbook?

You have got me....I have never heard of it. What OS are you using?
I'm using dual boot...W7 and Linux

Would your son like to explain why he thinks that?

I don't know, but he has extensive experience with computers, and he has never run across anything like this before, I haven't either, and I have been working with computers since '95..never heard of "boot booster" unless it is a subroutine in the boot sector of your OS...Take it to a tech, find out what is going on and please get back to me on this... Matt's and my hunch is a virus..

With respect, it seems like a bit of a leap to go from "I haven't heard anything about this" to "It's probably a virus." Not that I really know much...

Thanks for your help. I'll let you know when I figure it out.

A few things come up in google but I don't really understand what BIOS or partitioning is: https://www.google.com/search?q=boot+booster+doesnt+work+this+time&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Annski, sometimes a virus hits before anything is known about it...it is possible you know.

so it is a part of my second thought...a subroutine...something that the average user wouldn't really know about...virus is out of the question then...

keep going to Asus's web site..if they are aware of the problem, it shouldn't be to long before they issue a fix..
