My Fujitsu laptop wont turn on after updating failure of vista home


1) Try restarting the laptop and press the F8 key a few times while it is rebooting.
2) When you are prompted, move the arrow keys and select "Safe Mode"
3) After the laptop has fully started up in safe mode, just power down normally and restart.
4) It may take a little longer first time but hopefully the system should either roll back to the pre-upgrade state or it may complete the upgrade process sucessfully this time.

Windows did not open sucessfully

You most likely need to re-install Windows using a Dell Recovery CD to get your computer operating again. This process will delete your data unless the data is stored on another partition on the hard drive.
To recover your data before re-installing Windows, remove the hard drive from the computer and attach the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this as an external haed drive, you can then open the various folders and files to copy and back them up. After you have completed this task, return the hard drive to the Dell computer and try to fix the computer.

How to fix operating system not found?


You could have a corrupted boot.ini or ntldr, in that case the computer
wont 'see' that you have an OS installed.
Because you can't even boot into safemode, it'll be very hard to fix if anything is corrupt.

A way to fix it would be to boot XP CD and try repair, although I'm not sure if it'll work.

If that isn't sucessful, I'm afraid you'll have to reinstall Windows.

TW: Is there any CD/DVD in the optical drive or floppy in the fdd during boot-up? If there is, remove them.
Make sure you try to set HDD as the first boot device and see if that helps.

Try to turn off the pc and remove the cables and battery on the laptop. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds, then reinsert the battery and the cables on the pc. Turn on your laptop and check if the screen will finally splits sucessfully...

Power light comes on but nothing happens on start up

Press F8 during the boot sequence and select the last known good configuration, this should negate the updates and allow you to boot sucessfully.

Then apply the updates via the windows update website don't use autoupdates for this very reason use this reg tweak HERE to disable autoupdates for future reference

Sounds like the charger board has a short or the ac adapter is malfunctioning.The battery itself may be the cause but not likely.
