In most cases like this, you can try to un-install the device and then reboot the machine. Let windows find the new device and install the drivers for it and see if that corrects the problem. Control panel > system > hardware > device manager > go to the devive, right click on it and choose uninstall. DO NOT UNINSTALL THE DRIVERS....just the hardware. Now, reboot the machine and let windows do the rest. If it asks to search online for the best driver, click yes.

No sound on my pc!


step 1: check with the speakers on another computer to ensure the speakers are working fine.

1. Insert the CD-ROM titled 'Fujitsu Technology Solutions Drivers & Utilities CD' that came with the computer into the DVD tray and close it.
2. The Drivers & Utilities CD will start automatically.
3. Click on 'Driver Installation' option.






4. Click on INSTALL.
5. After the installation process the computer will automatically re-start. If not, for safety reasons (to not misinform/corrupt the information on the registry) restart the machine manually (Start Menu - Shut Down).
If you receive a message saying 'Found New Hardware Wizard' during the Drivers installation (Automatic recommended), ignore it and leave the Drivers & Utility CD to finish the installation. The D+U Setup is will detect the computer's hardware (it will not detect the drivers of any external devices you may have) and install the drivers needed. After you re-boot the machine you may get the Found New Hardware Wizard again, this will be your Monitor being detected, follow the on-screen instructions to install it properly (if you have a driver's disk, provided with your monitor or any other external device that you have connected, use this when prompted)

Check in your device manager
For XP, Start/Control panel/Performance Maintance/System/Hardware/Device Manager, go to CD/DVD, click on the + sign for the CD/DVD in question, right mouse the CD/DVD and go to properties, then check to see if this is working properly and also is this device enabled. If all of this is good, try updating the driver for this hardware.
If there is a problem with any of the hardware in device manager there will be flag by the hardware item. It could be that the driver is bad or missing or a variety of things.
If your using Vista go to Start/Control panel/device manager
If you cant find any problems in device manager and cant update the driver then the unit might be bad.
You can check all system drivers by downloading driver detective,
this can be found at http://www.drivershq.com/
Let me know if this helps.
Good luck

Dvd rom doesnt read dvds


Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "DVD/CD-ROM drives"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'DVD drive' icon there is your problem!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
Update the Drivers---

Cant read dvds, need new driver


You might get lucky by removing the drive entirely from the "hardware list" (start->settings->control panel->system), then letting the OS find it automatically. if it doesn't work try Windows Update and choose "Custom" to get driver updates, then restart if it tells you to. If that doesn't help, and if you're sure that the drive worked as a DVD before, try this KB from microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320553
