Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My Fujitsu Siemens Pa 1510 laptop is constantly freezing randomly, with white/blue/black vertical lines.I have taken it to repairers who replaced inverter cables to no avail. How can I fix this problem once and for..Is there any programme I can download and run that can give me a guaranteed solution

    When you say freezing do you mean as in the whole system freezes?

    or just the video (external monitor could answer this question)



    What Operating System are you running?



    But my first thought would be to immediately check the processor fan for dust build up on the heats ink since a pretty common issue with allot of laptops is that a small layer of dust builds up on the heatsink sort of like a thin blanket that prevents the air from cooling the heatsink like it is supposed to and that of course causes the cpu to overheat at first and one of the first signs of overheating is the whole thing freezing up.. And at first it may just happen when doing something extensive that requires allot of cpu power but after a while as the dust layer gets a little thicker it will happen more frequently and could result in a dead cpu after a while. (I have seen this situation countless times)



    Only problem is that if there is not an access door (removable piece of plastic) on the bottom that allows direct access to cpu fan and heatsink then you will probably have to take apart the laptop somewhat to be able to see if that is the problem (if you do not feel comfortable taking apart the laptop then I would suggest mentioning it to them the next time you take it in) since there is really no way to shine a flash light into the vents and see the dust because the layer of dust builds up on the other side of the fan and is usually impossible to see through the vent.



    NOTE: if you’re going to be attempting to do the repair yourself try to make note or which screws you remove from where since some of them are different lengths for a reason And be extra careful of ribbon wire connections when separating panels and so on

Hi dejandan1

Sorry to hear you are having problems. The very fact you tried an external monitor shows you have some good IT skills. As long as you know this monitor works it is a good test. As you have no image try toggling the video output signal by using Fn (Function) and the CRD/LCD (Cathode Ray Tube/Liquid Crystal Display) keys or Alt (Alternate) and the CRD/LCD keys.

If this does not workthen it is either
1. Laptop on board graphics failure
2. Laptop LCD panel failure
3. Laptop inverter failure
4. Laptop backlight failure
Turn on your laptop and look closely at the screen, can you see what you would normally see but very very dark? If so it is the backlight. If you cannot see anything, which is likely, then it is the inverter, actual panle failure or grahipcs chips on the motherboard.

It is most cost effective to send or take the laptop in for repair. You can replace inverters yourself but there is guarantee it is that. If the graphics on the motherboard has failed then all you can do is have the motherboard replaced. If the laptop is slow and old it may be time to consider a new laptop. If the laptop is under warranty, goto the Fujitsu Siemens website and log a under warranty repair.

All the best, Phil

Fujitsu siemens esprimo E3510 PC, screen goes dead at random intervals, PC power light still on, reboots ok sometimes (after pulling power cord)_, then goes dead again


Be sure all fans are working and blow out dust so system can cool properly. If clean, may be power supply or video card. Ensure cables inside are connected properly. Use caution when entering case. Voltages are present so make sure to unplug unit.

Video freezes up to vertical lines or blue or white screen


Clean the CPU cooler and everithing else from the dust!

Turn off,open the case, use air spray to clean.
(I use vacom cleaner and a small brush, but you risk your component if you do the same! I'm professional.)
