I think there may be a driver missing, because it does not recognize the storage partition on the same drive as the operating system as well. I wasn't sure if this could cause indexing problems and the search not to appear. It works fine on my big computer. Also has reduced display support. It wont use the full resolution.
Just so you know what I have tried, I have all the current drivers installed from the Asus website, current bios, and all the Windows updates are current. Any help would be appreciated. I would really like to be able to find files on my netbook once again.
Hi mistergrieves, Welcome to SF,

This will help you to see whether the search option is disabled in control panel.
If that didn't help you could do a Startup repair
