Uninstall the dispaly drivers and see if the problem persists, if it doesn't then vista has installed the wrong drivers, try download from the latest drivers for your machine

Do a simple test - Try connecting it to an external monitor or LCD monitor (at work, a friend or neighbor's) - if you get the same thing on the LCD and external monitor, then you've got bad on-board video (MB); if you only get abnormal output on the laptop's screen and the external video is fine, then it's likely a bad screen...

Power management software in Windows Vista

Understanding battery charging issues
If the notebook battery is not charging or the notebook does not indicate that the battery is charging, the most likely scenario is that the battery itself is operating correctly, but its power management software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by using the Device Manager. This document will explain how to uninstall and reinstall the ACPI Battery listings in Windows Vista, as well as how to obtain and install updated BIOS files, if needed to correct other battery issues.
Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows Vista
In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.

1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .

2. Expand the Batteries category.

3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.

4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes .
Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes .
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.

It was working and suddenly when I press togather the key Fn and F1 on my laptop Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727 ms2228 with windows Vista it does'nt swith on The WIFI. Thanks to answer me at the adress...


I had that problem, i couldnt switch on my wifi with the fn/f1 keys. The cause was i think a vista update, though im not sure which one it was because the laptop was given to me, and id not been privy to the update history... so i reinstalled vista from the image on the harddrive, pressed fn and f1 and the wifi was activated fine.. a million updates latter i tried it and>> nothing...I tried everything and still nothing lol...I then reinstalled vista (again lol), and then tried it, and>> bingo :) bottom line, find out what update is causing this and uninstall it (if that's possable) or just reinstall vista...now here's the key, there's a new bios update for the amilo ms2228 which rememebers the state of your last wifi comand, and maintanes it, in other words, update the bios, then activate the wifi, and it should stay on, (it did on mine) then go to windows update and reinstall all your updates (assuming you have just reinstalled vista or located and removed the offeding update) a final note, after i had updated the bios, reinstalled vista, , switched on wifi, and then completly updated vista, i could no longer switch off the wifi, which is suppose is better than not being able to switch it on in the first place lol :P

Blue screen of error with memory dump message and Vertical line


try to use an external monitor, plug it on the system and let it work with it for an entire day, it the problem occurs on the external monitor, it can be the video card, but if the problem doesnt happen on external monitor, its the lcd. try also to go to bios, by pressing F2 when the computer turns on and you see the dell screen, it will go to the bis an let it stay there for hours, if the problem happens in bios, video card is indeed bad. you said you have tried the diagnostics? is it by pressing Fn and power button? if the diagnostic looks fine, its a software but you mentioned you have reinstalled the operating sytem already,so focus on the hardware part. i believe your video card might be intel which is integrated or nvidia,for nvidia, lots of issues for it. so better try the external monitor or go to bios.

My laptop monitor is stuck in full screen mode after a game malfunctioned and the computer shut down. I did a system restore but it didn't change. Operating system - Vista.


Firstly, uninstall the game. then reboot the PC in safe mode. Right click on the desk top and select properties. Then select settings. From here give new settings to your monitor. If this does not wirk then Control Panel->System->HardWare->Deivce Manager. Select Display Adapters. Uninstall it and reinstall.
