SOURCE: Starts to the Fujitsu Screen then nothing

No Actually its fixable

There are a number of issues that can cause this but all of them are hardware related.. Mostly its eighter the hard drive or them main board (bios)

1.) Open up the laptop
You do this by removing the hinge covers, then removing the
face panel(part with the power button)
remove the kwyboard and you wiull have axcess to it..
2.) there is a battery on the main board, simply disconnect it, then remove your laptop battery and hit the power button(switch now) seven times.. Hopefully this will discharge any remaing power and reset your bios..

now try booting, if that works, simply enter your bios(setup) and load the optamised defaults then save and exit..

If that fails, Open back up the laptop again and try disconnecting the hard drive.. If it boots and says no boot disc, then your hard drive is defective and needs to be replaced..

If all that fails you will need to replace your mainboard.. if you are not qualified enough to do this i suggest you take it to a technician,,, Let me know what happens and if you need additional information, just post your question here and i shall reply asap

To enter the CMOS setup BIOS you hit f2 during the power on. After you enter the bios to the boot up screen and select first boot up = CD ROM. Save the configuration and reboot. Now pop in your windows XP cd into the CDROM, your computer will bootup from the CDROM. You can now reinstall windows.

You do not say what OS you are running. You could try F12 at bootup to see if you can get to the boot manager that way.

Bios fw140e reset vgn vergine

Follow these steps to access the BIOS on a VAIO computer.
WARNING: Other than resetting the BIOS to the default values, making changes to the BIOS is an advanced procedure that can produce unintended results if not done properly. For instance, if you set a Machine Password and later forget that password, it will require advanced technical support and possibly service to regain access to the computer.
  1. Turn off the computer.IMPORTANT: If you are having difficulty accessing the BIOS, or are doing so as a step in troubleshooting an issue, it is recommended that you remove all media or any peripheral devices connected to the computer before trying to access the BIOS.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. At the black VAIO logo screen, press the F2 key.
If you are accessing the BIOS as a step in troubleshooting an issue, you may need to reset the BIOS to the default settings. While the exact steps will vary slightly based on the version of the BIOS installed on the computer, these general steps will allow you to reset the BIOS to the factory default values:
  1. In the Setup Utility window, use the arrow key to select Exit.
  2. At the Exit screen, press the down arrow key to select Get Default Values, and then press the Enter key.
  3. At the Get Default Values prompt, use the arrow keys to select Yes, and then press the Enter key.
  4. At the Exit screen, with Exit Setup selected, press the Enter key.
  5. At the Exit prompt, use the arrow keys to select Yes, and then press the Enter key.
  6. The computer will restart.

When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?

Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

not too sure what you mean can reset bios to default or can set bios to factory set default ...when you turn on pc ,message at bottom left hand screen indicates which key to press to enter setup(bios setup) note...its very brief;mines f 10 for startup press this key and select load default then select save settings and exit;then ur pc restarts with default settings.
To reset bios to factory requires disassembly.
you locate rtc and remove battery(looks like large watch battery)for 5 minutes then replace,reassemble and restart dont need to know what rtc means(real time clock)or what it looks like cos the battery is right next to it.
