    it only displays a picture on an external when there is a picture on the internal lcd and the picture is perfect for the time its on for ,could the problem be because of the ram as when it doesnt turn on i changed the ram around it power up with a display,so is it worth getting some more ram to see if that works?

    thanks

This type of laptop has problems with its video chip. We have a couple of these and they all have to go to support and always the solution has been the change of the motherboard

Try using the function keys (FN + number) to try the switch forom an internal screen to an external and see if that makes a difference to the picture.

Also when you turn the computer on do you hear any system beeps (apart from the single beep at startup)?

If an external monitor is plugged in an the display is ok then the problem is probably an inverter board or bad/loose flex cable to the lcd screen.

If the external display is distorted then the problem is the video adapter on the laptop.

    It could be either a shadow ram for video problem or the video card on the mother board. I am not familiar with the life book. I had a similar problem on a dell and after I reseated the display adapter to the mother board and insured a proper ground there was no further problem. I believe the video adapter is on the mother board. since the external only works when internal is working this would indicate adapter problem. If the bios can be entered check the amount of video ram has been allocated. Limit it to lowest setting and see if this helps.

I have a fujitsu siemens lifebook E7010 laptop and the problem is this : When I switch on power the system goes ON but with a black screen and the small LCD is showing the start logos CD player is working...


Hi,


This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,


1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter


2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds


3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.


4. Check if you will see any difference.


5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.


If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

BLUE SCREEN STOP ERROR AND NO HARD DRIVE SHOWING


Sorry, but there's no real way to troubleshoot this without actually having the device. The problem you describe could be anything from a simple corrupted system32 driver or MBR (master boot record), to a hardware failure. The simplest thing you could try is to boot from your OS installation CD/DVD, reinstall the OS, and re-install your applications. Next would be to re-format the boot drive and restore your data from your most recent backup. Sorry I don't have better news for you.

My cd/dvd drive on my Fujitsu Siemens laptop doesnt work


Right click on my computer icon then click on property then ->hardware ->device manager

then check there is any cd/ dvd drive showing in list.
If you can see your cd /dvd driver then uninstall it.
then restart computer.
But if you cant seen then you need to refix your cd dvd rom.
For that pull your cd drive from laptop but make sure there is 1 lock system near rom just press that lock and pull drive then refix it.

Keeps freezing during installation of xp


Ok, lets start from scratch.

If you can, connect a different CD/DVD drive and change your Boot Priority to boot from here first.

Insert your XP disc, and using the CD's settings, delete all partitions and reformat the drive (NTFS). Start the installation and see what happens.

If you have already done this, or it doesn't work. Check how scratched the CD is. As long as it's not a manufacturer's revovery disc, you could ask someone if you could borrow their XP installation disc.

A good way to get rid of minor scratches on your CD's, is to spray them lightly with furniture polish (with beeswax). Leave for a minute, then using a very clean dust cloth, gently clean the cd from the middle to the outside. N.B. never clean the cd in a circle motion, i.e rubbing.

Hope this works for you.

3 beeps is generally a video card problem. Unsure if your laptop has separate video or if it is imbedded on the board, first make sure ram is fully seated in socket

check to see if lid switch is functioning correctly if possible.
if **thing seen,** change ,inverter board needs replacing.
you've tried changing moniter so it isnt cable connections internal or external.
you're **t hearing any beeps so it isnt video,mem or hd.
