Question about Computers & Internet

What is the safest way to erase a hard disk in order to re-install OS afresh? Laptop is a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5535. Contacted Fujitsu and they gave me a link to a part of their website with a program to erase the harddisk. Tried link and it doesn't work. Tried to call Fujitsu again but office closed until next week Tuesday (so much for customer support!). Many thanks.

    Many thanks map9966 and delfo. Problem I'm having is that laptop refuses to boot from OSrecovery dvd. "press any key to boot from cd/dvd" does come up but after pressing any key instead of working from the dvd it reverts to a persistent screen which gives me a choice of either launching startup repairs or launching windows normally. No recognition of OS recovery DVD. That's why Fujitsu recommended that I erase the entire hard disk drive before attempting to reinstall the OS. They gave me this link - from which I was meant to obtain a program from them to erase the hard drive but everytime I've tried this link I get a blank screen, no program. Any other tips on erasing hard drive before reinstalling OS would be greatly appreciated. You guys have been more help than Fujitsu (called today and they say they cannot understand why screen goes blank when I use their link as it apparently works for them - won't send me program on dvd despite offering to pay and won't email program to me). Thanks.

    many thanks Mike. Will try those links.

  • rkpfunk Mar 23, 2008

    thanks again for links Mike. downloaded kill disk and burned as iso image but boot cd still ignored.decided to manually remove and format hard drive. now reinstalled os and all seems well (except a message saying "Team H20 CLEDX has stopped working" which seems to have caused a problem preventing usage of the launch bar at bottom of screen) many thanks for taking the time to offer advice - much more than fujitsu did.

    I've recently been getting that error message as you said, the "Team H2O CLEDX has stopped working". I just realised I installed Cubase aswell so I'm figuring this is why it's started happening, not allowing me to use my task bar or program tabs. I've scanned my computer but it doesn't find anything, anyone know what I can do?

Usually this error occurs when Syncrosoft-Emu (H2O) is installed twice, to
bypass the problem make ctr alt delete which willl bring up the taskmanager,
click aplications on top of the screen and choose new tasks type in
msconfig and enter. In the msconfig window click the startup botton.
Disable (unmark) apply and okay.

Reboot to check that your problem is gone.

When you start cubase you will have to start true emu manually to startup

Hi rkpfunk, the easy way is to let your operating system erase the drive since your going to install a new OS. Load your OS CD into the cdrom drive. Boot the system Press the F8 key ever two seconds until you see a boot menu. Using your keyboard arrow keys highlight the cdrom drive & press enter. You should see, to boot to cd press any key. Press the space bar. Follow the on-screen prompts. Read each screen. You will have the option to perform either a quick format or a full format of the notebooks drive. Choose a quick format. Than allow the OS to install.
The link below contains all the drivers & other downloads you'll need for the V5535 notebook. When you click drivers you'll need to choose your ver. OS to continue.

Please run windows update before installing any programs.
Execpt your network driver. (install first).
Many drivers & software need files from windows update to function correcty in cluding video.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

Any questions? Feal free to ask.
Thanks for using FixYa.

    Caught that rkpfunk, try this link: I'm not sure is this can be put on a CD.

    I have used that program at least 4 or 5 times & never received the error message. Also everything I download I scan. Never the less it's been troubling me, so I thought I try a wild search & this is what I cam up with.

    There is an icon for this program on the taskbar next to the clock. The program has a visible window. Program has no file description. File cledx.exe is not a Windows system file. Therefore the technical security rating is 27% dangerous, however also read the users reviews.
    Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as cledx.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the cledx.exe process on your pc whether it is pest.

    Bottom line, asap scan your system with a updated virus checker. Need one for free? Click here.

    Just in case here's the other killer. Great for formating a drive that keeps coming up with blue screen. Some times you have to run both each program twice before they do the job. aarrrg!

Hi dejandan1

Sorry to hear you are having problems. The very fact you tried an external monitor shows you have some good IT skills. As long as you know this monitor works it is a good test. As you have no image try toggling the video output signal by using Fn (Function) and the CRD/LCD (Cathode Ray Tube/Liquid Crystal Display) keys or Alt (Alternate) and the CRD/LCD keys.

If this does not workthen it is either
1. Laptop on board graphics failure
2. Laptop LCD panel failure
3. Laptop inverter failure
4. Laptop backlight failure
Turn on your laptop and look closely at the screen, can you see what you would normally see but very very dark? If so it is the backlight. If you cannot see anything, which is likely, then it is the inverter, actual panle failure or grahipcs chips on the motherboard.

philswift.gif Above is a link and flow chart that will help you.
It is most cost effective to send or take the laptop in for repair. You can replace inverters yourself but there is guarantee it is that. If the graphics on the motherboard has failed then all you can do is have the motherboard replaced. If the laptop is slow and old it may be time to consider a new laptop. If the laptop is under warranty, goto the Fujitsu Siemens website and log a under warranty repair.

All the best, Phil

Fujitsu esprimo v5535 boot up and keyboard failure

Try Safe Mode. Press F8 key during bootup and you will be presented with a black screen with multiple choices. Select "Safe Mode". This will load Windows with minimal drivers and with admin login option. If you can log in as administrator then create a new account in the Control Panel. Restart the computer and shut down. If it shuts down correctly then you are half way there, windows OS is not to badly corrupted. Boot up and if it comes up normally select the new profile you created.

If this does not work, then you will have to repair the system files, for which you will need a OS CD or restore disk.

Battery does'nt charge and has'nt since new

Sounds like a bad battery. Contact your resaller if it's still in exchange period, or Fujitsu if it's still in warrenty period...otherwise, you're gonna be out about 120 bucks for a new battery.
