V2300 cto follow up 16 nov 2008

Hi FRCS68,
I wrote earlier about my HDD brand. I donot know whether you got that mail? It is Fujitsu MHV2060AT PL 60 gb . I downloaded a software for fujitsu hard disk diagnostics and tried it on my v2300, I tried the bios hdd test. It passed all both the quick and extended hd tests in both the software. I also noticed this time, a whole list of software which used to install automatically on windows xp home reinstall, like PCI device, Mass storage controllers, 1394 and especially the intel pro 2200 dont get installed. When I try to uninstall the improperly( with the yellow question mark next to it) installed intelpro wireless card I get a new warning that windows could not uninstall because it may be needed for boot up.
That kind of confirms my suspicion this card is preventing normal boot up leading to the f1 f2 error..
As I said in my post, the blue tooth device is enabled all the time but the wireless is not many times. Now I am trying to install the xp when (if) the wireless card is also enabled in bios. The problem is when I save settings and restart I donot know if the wireless card is enabled at that time.
Is there any way I can force the xp installation without rebooting when I am in bios display and I know that the wireless card has been enabled? or make the laptop go to directly boot from cd? (I have changed the boot order to cd rom anyway.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Wireless card enabled in BIOS is only telling the machine there is a wireless card other than what was buildin on the mother board.
The wireless will not work without the driver. I don't think you need to worry about the wireless when you installing the XP operting system.
first download the wirelss drive and store it on a CD of other media.
once you have finished the installation. You can install the driver for the wireless, then goto and download the drivers as you needed them.
My suggestion is install XP as fresh installation, it is much easier and faster, if you don't have any thing on the machine you need to save.
the change you made is fine, the machine should boot up from the CD. it may not happen the first time,but it will the second time.

Install the following applications in order, all of which are available through the Drivers & Software link on this page.

I am searching for a used motherboard for my fujitsu C1110 if you can provied it for me please send me an e-mail on my address. Best Regards luisco Louis Hobeika

Check ebay. Fujitsu parts aren't easy to come by since it's a Japanese brand. Also they're not easy to replace either. Unless you know what you're doing I would think about getting another laptop.

HI! Yes you can upgrade your Hard drive from a 30GB (std size) to as much as 120GB. The only thing yu need to be sure of is that you need to buy a IDE 2.5" HDD which is a little bit hard to find but is still available. Try to google some suppliers online.

Hope this Helps.
