Boot up problem

I have a FUJITSU PI 1536 with a boot up problem, this machine as been working flawless up until about a week ago, then all of a sudden i have to keep pressing the on off power button to try and boot up, sometimes it could be half an hour pressing the button sometimes 10 mins, the led lights come on for a few seconds then go off no beeps, hard drive does not boot and a blank screen, if i keep turning on and off eventually the laptop boots up and loads with no problems, and it will run as long as i have it turned on, but when i turn it off i have the same problem again, i have removed the battery and the hard drive to try and boot to no avail same problem, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Back up your data from the hard drive and then use your xp disc and go into recovery console and run

chkdsk /r

and fixboot and fixmbr and try again.

Also if you find out the manufacturer of the hard drive and go to there website you should be able to get diagnostic utils to test your hard drive.

Also if you go to you should be able to burn an iso disc to boot from to test your memory.

    I would go to start --> run and type cmd and click on ok

    Then in the command prompt window type

    chkdsk /r

    it will prompt you or should do and say it cant do it properly and do you want to run chkdsk on reboot press the y key / letter and press enter and reboot and it should run the chkdsk when windows manages to reload

    Is it a sata drive as it may not be loading the sata drivers when trying to boot the cd or when going into recovery console so you may have to get the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disc or slipstream the sata drivers into the hitachi disc ( might be able to use nlite to do this )

Fujitsu N6420 upgraded to Windows 7 Professional. Ran fine for a month or so until it hung in middle of automatic Windows update. Now can not boot from hard drive or CD--gets to Windows logo splash screen...

If you still have the install disk you can put that in, hold F12 as the computer is booting up, and choose to boot from CD. The setup disk has a repair option that might fix the problem.

Fujitsu amilo simens Pi1536 and Pi1556 bios password chip locatio

Hi ,
Replacing the existing BIOS chip with a new one you can buy from your specialized electronic shop or your computer supplier. It's a quick operation if the chip is inserted on a base and not soldered to the motherboard, otherwise you'll have to unsolder it and then put the new one. In this case would be more convenient to solder a base on which you'll then plug the new chip, in the eventuality that you'll have to change it again. If you can't find the BIOS chip specifically made for your motherboard, you should buy one of the same type (probably one of the ones shown above) and look in your motherboard manufacturer's website to see if there's the BIOS image to download. Then you should copy that image on the chip you bought with an EPROM programmer.

Whether is the method you use, when you flash the BIOS not only the password, but also all the other configuration data will be reset to the factory defaults, so when you are booting for the first time after a BIOS flash, you should enter the CMOS configuration menu (as explained before) and fix up some things.
Also, when you boot Windows, it may happen that it finds some new device, because of the new configuration of the BIOS, in this case you'll probably need the Windows installation CD because Windows may ask you for some external files. If Windows doesn't see the CD-ROM try to eject and re-insert the CD-ROM again. If Windows can't find the CD-ROM drive and you set it properly from the BIOS config, just reboot with the reset key, and in the next run Windows should find it. However most files needed by the system while installing new hardware could also be found in C:WINDOWS, C:WINDOWSSYSTEM, or C:WINDOWSINF .
