Question about Fujitsu LifeBook A3110 Notebook
Can you get the machine to boot up from a USB stick? create a bootable usb stick with instructions below and transfer everything from the DVD to the stick. you need around 4GB stick.
On another machine, open the cmd.exe or command prompt with administrator rights.
In the prompt write diskpart and hit enter.
Then type list disk, note the disk number of the flash drive.
lets say your pendrive is disk 3 (replace it with your own number)
Then enter the following commands in diskpart and hit enter
Select Disk 3
create partition primary
select partition 1
Next insert your windows disc in the drive, find out what is the drive letter of your dvd drive and what is the drive letter of your usb stick then go back to the command prompt
Enter the drive letter of your dvd drive and hit enter like this for example if it was D drive then below (and don't forget" : " without the quotes)
Next enter CD BOOT
write bootsect.exe /nt60 F: ((Where the F is your USB Sticks Drive letter))
Copy the DVD content into the usb stick by using the normal explorer, no need to do that on the command prompt.
Change your laptops boot order so it boots from USB-HDD or USB-XXX (replace XXX with any other available usb option...) Hopefully this does it.

You should go to the BIOS. Make a note of the boot order. Set the first boot device to cdrom.
Once you see a prompt that says press any key to contintue to boot to cd press the Enter Key Once
When you have a prompt that says welcome to windows press R to Repair press F3 to quit and press Enter to create a fresh new copy of windows.
Follow any prompts as required and when you have finished don't forget to change the BIOS boot order, back to as it was.
There you have it, a fresh operating system. All it may need now is the drivers installing and the software re installing.
I hope this is the information that you require.
