Need help w. getting my display and/or drivers back to work...SOLVED!
Been about 15 years or maybe even more ago since this has happened. So it was about to happen any time soon, I guess;
Friend of mine asked me if I could clean his newly purchased Asus E200HA netbook. He's not a big fan of the preinstalled WIN10, so I offered him to put a stripped down custom version of Win7 Ult. 64 (UEFI) on it, instead.
That was some 15 hrs ago, and it's still not operative... While waiting for my stripped USB to be converted to a bootable .ISO, I decided to "make things faster" on the current setup.
Not being used to working on Windows machines for quite a while (mostly OSX for quite some time), I decided to uninstall some features/drivers in the list. When all of a sudden, when still in removing , I think it was a Nvidea-driver, the display turned black. And hard-reset will not return any of it's colours. I would have thought that there should be at least an error notification/warning, when you're about to remove one of these critical parts.
Before updating the bios, (Stevie Wonder-style, that is), I would like to know if I can do some sort of reset on the bios, which get's me back to the factory defaults, and of course brings back a more vivid, lifely display monitor.
Anyone out here familiar with Asus' Vivobook netbooks line (11"), and got an solution (i.e. removing CMOS underneath mobo, and removing power; and holding the power on/off for 30 secs.)? A half solution just unveiling the availability of the presence of an actual CMOS will get me a lot further than Google brought me the last 20 searches...
Speaks for itself that in return you'll get my thanks, gratitude, and fame. And next to this you'll have another 15 years of simple and straightforward questions, instead of these long irrelevant write-ups. That's just me for now. Deal with it. And thanks again :).
All the best,
PS: just thinking out loud here; would installing everything on that 32GB eMMC-drive provide a solution (being done from a Virtual Machine, since my own gear is osx native...
Almost get things back to working again. Just got out to get myself a micro-HDMI to HDMI connecting plug. My TV is now my first screen, so I can see again what I'm doing. Next step; roll back all the drivers by using the device manager.
