    Thanks for your help. No sign of any lights on the motherboard. Not sure of where the LEDs are, but there are definitely no lights illuminated inside the tower. All peripherals have been removed.

    On this occasion, all the fans are running and the lights on the front of the tower are illuminated. No beeps

    I have exactly the same problem fans working and case lights on with nothing displayed on the screen and no beeps when switched on. I have cheked the CPU fan which seems to be working quite fast although a little noisy would this be enough to cause problems. Several weeks ago I noticed that the CPU heat sink was clogged solid with dust and fluth because of the way the fan draws air directly down on to the heat sink could this be the route of the problem or is it still likely to be a fan or bios problem . Please let me know any clues would be most welcome .

I also have a Fujitsu-Scaleo P, yesterday I had the same problem exactly as described here. The issue is that the CPU fan does not work anymore. It is easy to replace, only four Phillips screws to be removed. I simply don't know if the new fan replacement can be bought alone, or if the air duct will be in the replacement kit, along with the aluminum block. It is a Cooler Master Model made by Protechnic Electric model MGT 9212ZR-W25. If it wasn't that the problem, when the computer is still cold, try to boot it, press DEL which will bring up the BIOS Setup Menu, and you can see if the Fan still works: in one of its menus shows the Fan RPMs and CPU Core Temperature. Good luck.

Hi Isabella07, your description sounds like a possible over heating issue. To confirm this, (while standing in front of the PC looking at the front of the PC case), please remove the case's left side panel. When you get the left side case panel off, start the PC & look at the CPU fan. (it's the largest fan mounted on an aluminum block with slits cut across it). Is the fan spinning? If yes, does it seem to be spinning slowly? When the PC started to shut down all by it's self, did you also start hearing high frequency beeps while the PC was running?
If you answer yes to any of these questions there ia a good chance the processor's fan is defective & needs to be replaced. On some models, the processor's fan can not be removed from the aluminum block & inorder to replace the CPU fan both items must be replaced. Replacing the CPU fan & heat sink should be done by a professional or by someone well versed with the internals of a working
computers. It is also unlikely for a PC to shut down because of a defective video card. So not getting display on your monitor (though you could have a problem with the graphics card), is not the reason your PC shuts down.
Does this look like your PC. (click the link).

My initial impression is that your motherboard or power supply is shot. Open your tower and check to see if the motherboard light is on and what colour it is, and if it is blinking and in what pattern. Also check the capacitors (little battery looking things) to see if the flat top of any has become rounded or peaked. This would indicate a problem with the board. Also if you have added anything new to the pc, try removing it and see if that helps to solve the start up problem. Keep me posted. Good Luck

How to remove the side panel from a Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo Home PC?

Need the model number Chiara. Look on the back near the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower. There are MANY versions of the Scaleo model series, and also case designs. Post back in a Comment. (Clarification and Comment options not available, at the moment. So I'll use a Solution box for that, and a Comment box for a Solution, lol!)

My fujitsu scaleo p tower won't display anything on the monitor! The monitor works fine with other devices.... everything spins and all LEDs light up just no output to the monitor :/ any...

Have you tried putting the Graphics card in a Different slot? If you have and it is still not working most-likely it means that your video card has gone bad and needs replacing.

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)

Fujitsu siemens scaleo 600 desktop just keeps shutting down any ideas

1) Bad Power Supply. Power Supply has a weak voltage power rail.

Electrolytic Capacitors are breaking down inside the Power Supply.

The capacitors build up a charge long enough to work briefly, then break down.

2) Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard are breaking down. Specifically the one's used in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.


B) Visually identifying bad capacitors,

C) Video showing what happens with bad capacitors (Electrolytic) in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit (Starts at 0:04)

Await your further diagnoses.

Onboard Sound Drivers and Video Controllers

Hi EsteG, found all your drivers for your SCALEO 800, these are also used for the SCALEO 800Si 2410 Silent+. They call it the 800 series, for XP. Click the link below.

Because it's the whole 800 series you'll need your manual to pick the correct Audio driver as noted in your manual. To narrow down the ammount of drivers in each area. There should be a sticker on the PC that has the serial No# . Enter that number on this link below. (Siemens Fujitsu) does not make this easy.

If I can be of more service, just ask.
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
