Question about Computers & Internet

My Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pa 1538 does not start up anymore, after I had to perform a cold reboot after it had gotten stuck. It does start producing a sound when powered up, and 2 of the LED lights on the front panel are lit, however the screen remains black and there is no response to any keyboard input. I cannot find any instructions on how to solve this, hopefully someone can help me out here. Thanks for your help. Wim

    Thanks for your assistance. Unfortunqtely it did not solve the problem. Pressing F8 during startup did not work, the screen stayed black. I have opened the backside of the laptop and have taken out 2 'chips' of 1GB, which I assume is the RAM memory and should be the cmoss cell you were referring to (please correct me if I am wrong, I do not know much about hardware). After roughly 15 minutes I reassembled it as it was before and tried again, however the screen is still black.
    Is there anything else I could possibly try?
    Thanks

    When powered up, the laptop starts making a normal noise, which seems to be the ventilator inside. Apart from that, the CD-ROM station makes a short noise twice, apparently it is checking whether a disc is inserted.
    That's all the noise it makes.


    Is there still value in removing the CMOS cell, and how can I identify this?

    Hi drifterK, thanks for the info. I cannot seem to find the cmos/bios battery though. I have been looking like razy and I tried getting info on the net, but I cannot seem to find it. Could you describe where I can find it and what it looks like? I read it should be like a roundish watch bettery, however I do not find such a thing.

In this moment it is closed without saving setings and to get it out you will have to reset the bios ..but cause it is booting in loop and do not initiate the only way to do that is to open it and try to get to the Bios battery ...if you locate it and have access (this is the main issue ) you just remove it for a few seconds..and that's all..this will get it out of the loop and will boot and ask you to press f1 to setup the date and time ..after that will boot mormaly ..its not necesary to set ittime in bios ..just get there and press f10 to save changes and after that will set from the windows...

For that When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to start menu ->Display->settings then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply.
But if you are not able to see safe mode and other menu then you need to open back cover of laptop then pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes reattach the RAM memory then check.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you see any display on screen then make sure your harddrive is recognized in bios.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

What sound do you exactly hear when the notebook powers up?
The 2 x 1 GB chips you refer to are the memory modules, not the CMOS cell.

My FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PA 1538 screen comes black ? HELP


Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor and see if all is working Ok with that, if it is, then you may need to get the laptop display serviced - if it does the same on the external display, then try booting the laptop from a CD or DVD such as an OS install CD (Windows or Linux) or a boot utility CD such as Hiren's Boot CD - this will allow you to test whether the problem lays with your installed operating system or with the hardware. . . .
Note: do not go any further than the initial displays if using an OS install CD unless you are using a Linux Live boot CD which will not destroy your installed operating system. . . .See http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ to download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD to burn to a CD. . . .See http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download to download a copy of a Ubuntu (Linux) Live CD.

If you Google the make and model of your machine there are loads of places to obtain your drivers from, even going to the Fujitsu site should supply them. Have you tried rebooting in "Safe" mode (normally the "F8" on boot up) it might just sort it.
