Hi, I have an unusual problem. I was given a used laptop and when I booted it up was shocked to see Chinese text. I've attempted to enter Setup/Bios but I'm not quick enough or something and can't decipher whats on the screen. Part of the prob is the keyboard is very different, and delete etc. aren't in their usual spots as well as Asian symbols on the keys. It's a FUJITSU- FMV-BIBLO NB9/95 Laptop w/ XP Home Edition OS. However I think there may be more than 1 OS installed/ unsure bout that tho. Now can I get software off the Net re: Win XP that will help, or should I visit the Fujitsu website? Please help!!! Thanx , Christa. Model is FMVNB995

Re: Laptop software written in Chinese
Your cheap way out would be to contact Fujitsu. They can sell you a Windows XP CD for that laptop that is in English. If you buy your own, it will cost you more. The one that they sell you will only work on that brand of laptop. It will be less than half the cost of a store bought Windows XP though. The problem with the Asian keyboard; You will have to have them sell you an American keyboard. I am sure that the laptop is at least worth the cost. I hope that this Fixed your problem.

A 1982 laptop is likely to be very slow and short of memory by today's standards. I have a laptop from those days and while it is capable of running software and animations that were written around that time and even accessing the internet at that time, it is ill-equipped to play video and quite impossible to upgrade. A 1982 laptop was great for word processing and storing text files, driving a printer and general text-based and line drawing based office duties but little else.
1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced. 2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop. 3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced. 4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work. 5. The power button could be bad. 6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
Hi, use your XP install disc (or Vista or whatever OS you use) to boot up your laptop and do a Repair Install. Usually you will get a prompt to "Boot from CD by pressing any key." during the power up of your laptop. If you dont get that option, reboot and go into BIOS and change your boot order ie have the CD drive as first boot option followed by your hard drive. Then try booting again with your XP disc in the cd drive. You can change the language to English during a Repair installation but you may have to re-enter your serial number and activate again on-line again. Cheers, Steve
Dear alyrian, this might be because of your line spacing settings. Go to formatting and reduce line spacing between lines and it should fit to 2 pages. You also might like to verify that font and text size is same in both documents.
Make sure you haven't written any additional text. Try to check spacing between paragraphs too.
