Question about Fujitsu LifeBook Computers & Internet

Can't get into safe mode

When i turn my computer on it goes to a screen that says 'American Megatrends' at the top with multiple options below. Shorty after, it goes to a black screen with a white blinking horizontal line in the top left corner. I cannot do anything after that, it just stays there. I have tried going into safe mode by pressing F8 and F5 but neither of them worked. Help is greatly appreciated!!

Have you tried rapidly tapping F8 as soon as you press the power button or did you just press it once? Dont wait for it to get to the blinking cursor page.

    Also try F2 and Delete / Del key. One of them should get you in to the bios and you can load the bios defaults just in case it's messed up in there.

    what do i do after i get into the bios?

    Depends which bios it is but usually there is an option to load in the defaults.
    I think it's on the Exit / Save menu. Just load them in, they are stored in the bios chip.
    Then save and exit.

    It seemed to work at first but then it went straight back to the black background with the blinking white line.

Please, try this test:

When you turn on the computer, press the F8 key multiple times to get to a menu (recovery, safe mode). If you get there, select Safe Mode. Once on Safe mode, restart the computer to see if it ever gets to normal boot.

It's a memory problem. One or more of your memory chips are destroyed and the computer comes to these problems. Sorry to said but you have to get the desktop at a technician. In case you are able to open the desktop cover and want to try yourself, post me back to give you more details.
