Welcome to bc. Windows 7 will do hyper terminal just fine. Sounds like you have a bad hard drive.

Does the ram count happen and can you get into bios setup? It's usually one of the function keys, f10 or f12, I don't know exactly on the eee pc.

If you can and you have a usb drive you can search google for guides on how to put xp or a rescue cd on the drive, boot to it, and correct the drive error.

System manufacturer and model?

Since you mention Win 7...are you running a dual-boot?

Typically, black screen with flashing cursor in upper left corner...indicates an MBR problem.
