    okay i will try and clean it. also when i turn the pc on TWO of the LEDs light up

  • Bean13 Jun 14, 2008

    Well the last time it started running it lasted for 2 weeks being turned off at night and on at 4 o clock-ish on most days. Also the LEDs are on solid but Im not sure wether they are just for decoration. I tried to get in to the pc to clean the fan but am struggling to get the pc casing off.. Also i dont know wether this could be a problem with dust on the inside of the pc. Thanks for the help so far.

    Hey thanks for all your help Mike. I have some great news. All i did was clean out the fan a little and left the pc overnight and now it is working again and yes the green red and amber lights are on. So i guess the fan may have been spinning too slow and maybe over heating the computer? All I know is it is working again and thanks for the help.

Try cleaning out the PC. Clean the CPU fan, remove all dust build up within the case. Canned air helps a lot. Blow out the power supply too. When you are able to power up the PC, do you see the case LED's light up / flashing?
I'm keeping in mind that when you loose the video display you also loose the use of the PS2 keyboard & PS2 mouse. If the CPU is over heating the system will shut down the PC.
If you're system is still under warranty, please call Fujitsu.
You may need a new power supply, CPU or board. Sorry!

Good luck!

    Bean, what color are the LED's? Are the solid or do they flash?

    Also the last time is did function, how long did it run? Do you recall the first time the PC started to screw up? had you possible installed any new hardware or software?

    The inside of a PC in no different than the screen on a TV. It attracts dust & dirt. Most PC's have four screws on the back side of the case. While looking at the front of the case, you want to remove the left side panel. If there are no screws there can be a small lever that slides up or down when pushed. At the same time you push that lever you would use the palm of your hand & push the side panel towards the rear of the PC to remove. Still other cases may have a similar latch located on the bottom of the PC. Bottom latches release the side panel outwards & not to the rear. If you have you're manual it should show how to get into the PC case. Every PC should be cleanned once every 4 to six months. The LED's I am talking about are located right next to the crom drive, floppy drive & near the power on & reset buttons. I see the Scaleo has three LED's at the front bottom. They are not the LED's I'm talking about. (Green, Amber & Red LED's).

    May I suggest swapping out you're power supply. To do this, you will have to get the case opened.

Wireless keyboard and mouse not working after reastart

Just a thought--try this. Go into the device manager and delete all the USB ports. Don't worry--they will be reinstalled on restart. Sounds like there is something having to do with them that is confusing the computer.
Just right-click on My Computer (or Computer in Win 7), choose properties and then click on device manager to get there.

I was dusting my acer monitor and microsoft wireless keyboard and i must have hit something because now my monitor is reading sideways and the mouse wont work with it either. Can you tell me what I need to...

Sounds like you changed the orientation of your display settings from landscape to portrait.
In Windows 7 you can go to the control panel, choose display and click "Change Display Settings" on the left side.

From there choose the "Orientation" dropdown and change to your desired setting (most likely landscape)

Good luck

Mouse Freezes


I have the same problem in Vista, I found a true and working solution apart of droping the mouse to the trash, ok, go to... go to the english version if you dont speak chinese, then find the driver for the mouse model ***-49Z, and there is the solution, GE isnt the builder of this mouse.

Take Care.

Mouse and keyboard not recognized on second computer

Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.

I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.

My Keyboard only works on one PC but the monitor and mouse works on both?

Plug the key board and mouse directly into the computer that doesn't work, let it recognize the hardware and then reboot. After reboot, plug the keyboard and mouse back into the KVM and reboot again. That solved the problem for me. Most likely, the computer that doesn't work has never loaded the driver for that key board and does not recognize the input sent from the KVM.
