I have installed windows xp home edition, version 2002 with service pack 2.. It was originally set up with linux but I deleted it.
I have got a little problem now in that when I press the caps lock button I don't get the "caps on" icon showing in the the bottom right like before.
What can I do to have it showing again?..thanks for your help :-)

There's a program on the DVD that shipped with it that does that I believe, I can't recall what it's called though.

If you can't find that you can try http://www.binaryfortress.com/TrayStatus/
I use that on machines that have wireless keyboards and it works really well.

All the XP drivers are on the DVD which came with it. If you don't have a CD drive, use another computer to copy the drivers to a USB stick. The Fn sound keys do not work. We have 3 Asus 701's in the house. Two are on XP Pro, and the third has Windows 7 squeezed into it. Has 2gb memory because there is no room for a swap file. Also has a SD Card as a second drive which has My Documents and most of the software on it. The Windows 7 has been pruned considerably in order to fit, but it works well.

If you have the 4GB solid state drive you may have run out of head room. Remember there is not much puff in the processor either.
I run a slimmed down version of XP as supplied by Asus, you might like to try and borrow one.
