Dead sharp pc-ax40

Hi,
i left the laptop copying files to an external USB disk, and when i came back it had frozen, so i restarted it.Since then, the laptop refuses to turn on. The power led is on showing that it has power, but when i try to turn it on, i hear a small noise from the speaker and nothing happens. When i press the reset button underneath all green leds on top right corner tun on and still nothing happens. Any help on that? Did the motherboard died? or could it be something simpler?
Thanks

You can try reseating the memory and the hard drive if you can get to it, but it sure sounds as though the motherboard is shot.
You can take it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...


Hi,
You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

How to set sharp pc ax40 laptop bios to boot from usb flash drive?


Sad to say your model "Sharp pc ax40 Series laptop" does not support the "Boot from USB devices" options from the Bios.

It uses the "Floppy Drive 3.5" 1.44 MB floppy - External" ie portable FDD booting options.

Hope it helps.

Remove the disk-drive from the laptop, and connect it to another computer.
Copy all the files from the recovery-media onto the disk-drive.
Reinstall the disk-drive into your laptop.
Run the recovery software from where you copied the files onto the disk-drive.

Hi,
theres a couple of options.
1:) you could try using an external USB keyboard.
2:) you could try inserting a system restore CD, into the CD/DVD drive. when prompted use the repair console, or roll-back to a previous installation.
3:) obtain a replacement hard-drive, setup windows. to get the system up and running, then connect your original hard-drive, via an external adaptor. and copy any required files. From external to new drive. Finally. If you can access the laptops CMOS Battery. remove it, and clear the settings to thier default Values.

Want to use clone hard drive to run XP


Because the HP and Fujitsu have different devices, you cannot clone (or create an image of) the hard disk and expect it to work on the other laptop.
Your best bet would be to copy your data files onto a USB memory stick or an external USB hard drive and plug it into the HP. You can open the files on the USB memory Stick/hard drive to work on them or copy them to the HP's hard drive to work on them.
When your Fujitsu has been repaired you can copy the latest files from the USB memory stick/hard drive back onto your Fujitsu.

create a new folder in your hard-disk and first try to copy 1-2 files from the external hard-drive to the new folder (copy any data/work/images you have stored/created not any files of windows folder or root of c: drive)

if the above copy works then copy back all except the c: root and these folders - Windows folder, Document & settings, Program Files
