Question about Fujitsu Siemens AMILO D-7830 Notebook
Hi. I unfortunately have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo D7830 laptop bought from new about 4 years ago. The whole thing is breaking up on me faster than I can mend it (failing hard disk, keyboard needs replacing, plastic cracking etc).
After having just replaced the hinges (lid is too stiff and the struts broke over time), I put it all back together again and when I switch it on I am faced with a black screen and a fan that whirrs. There are lights but it doesn't even boot up the BIOS. I remember that it did occassionally get into this state when I left it processing all day last year and it probably got too hot.
So I opened it up and replaced the CMOS battery (CR2032) , screwed it all back together and the computer boots up. Wahey! So I go into BIOS and it asks me if I want to load optimal default settings. I say yes and it asks me again. I say yes again and it freezes. So I unplug it and switch it back on only to have the the black screen, the whirring fan and unable to boot up the BIOS. I don't want to waste another CMOS battery on it if it's going to do the same thing again. Anyone got any ideas what the problem is? I am completely lost as to what to do now. Laptops become obsolete quickly enough, I didn't need it to break apart even more quickly.
As an update to this, I've been able to boot it up a few times since posting this, but it never gets as far as being able to boot up an entire operating system before freezing.
