Fujitsu siemens amilo m3438g

I am still not confident in fitting a second hard drive to this computer. I have got the drive plus an installation kit with lots of gits. I am not sure what goes where.

My Fujitsu AMILO M3438G will not startup. I,ve changed the cmos battery but it still says that the bios is wrong. I've tried pressing the F2 key but then the monitor displays a "wait" page...


The lines on the screen point to a failing graphics chip, faulty VGA lead or more probably, the screen itself beginning to fail.
The bios problem is most likely due to a damaged bios chip, this is usually caused by attempting to upgrade the bios by flashing and the flash process going wrong, resulting in a series of instructions on the bios chip being incorrect. Changing the Cmos battery will have no effect.

You need to reflash the bios with a stable version, this can be done via floppy drive or USB stick, but you will need to obtain a usb floppy drive (I THINK the bios on the laptop supports this). On the floppy drive, you will need to install a windows 98 type boot disc
http://www.bootdisk.com/

and obtain the bios and flash file for this laptop
http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/downloads.html ( dos version)

On another computer, copy both to separate floppies, boot to the floppy drive, let it load the OS then swap floppies and load the bios flash from floppy

I believe that you can also get the ISO (cd image) which, as long as the laptop can read the cd drive, will be a better option.

If you cannot even get the bios to recognise the floppy or cd, then the problem will need a replacement bios chip installing to sort it out

Hi, laptop will not start


Seems like your Operation System crashed. Find your reinstall CDs and reload windows.

If you find someone who can pull the hard drive and hook it to another machine and run a check disk that might save you from reloading it and losing all your data.

I have lost my recovery cd for Siemens AMILO Pr, how can i instal windows XP SP2 again on my system as it says there is no hard disk connected. Plz help me


If You're Getting That Message... Then It's Not Recognising The Physical Hardware... The Drive Itself...

Pull Hard Drive Out And Reinsert It... Then Go Into Your BIOS Setup... Ensure That Your Hard Drive Shows Up In There....If Not, Your Hard Drive Most Likely Is Faulty and Will Need Replacing..

You Will Still Need Either A Recovery CD Or Just An OS Cd..(XP/Vista etc..)

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.
