    on the hard drive how did you set it up? Master? Slave? Does it have an operating system or is it piggy backed off of another hard drive?

Did your laptop support 300gig hdd? If it is, do the new hdd had OS. If not, try to replace the hdd. Also try to check the hdd from your bios and also check the booting priorities.

Probably if you can hear the hdd runnng and lights are switching on and off then, the display cable is undocked. Try openning the machine side if not, then the screen side cable.

When I turn on my laptop pc every couple days a black screen will come up and the laptop stops processing. Why? How to fix it?

I would suspect a glitch in the MBR/software, a black screen with a white cursor in the top left, BUT, Try this , when you shut down always unplug, remove battery when you use at home connected to AC. At boot in BIOS, BOOT sequence, change to Boot from HDD first. Also remove DVD's, CD's from the DVD/CD rom drive, if the machine has boot from DVD/CD rom as a default, it will try to read the disk in the drive first, delaying a switch to second HDD boot. This is a general idea in the Boot sequence procedure:

When I switch on power, system will ON but black screen some times its ON with Fujitsu logo then a strip of white line & afterwords black screen

At boot up press F2 and enter the BIOS. Here from the first Menu see if the HDD is being read as that seems to be the problem that you are facing. The control is not reading the HDD and hence it does not go beyond the Fujitsu Logo. If the HDD is being read then probably the Windows has gone corrupt and would need re installation.
If HDD is not being read then you must show it to a professional.

Check all you cables etc.. If this does not correct the problem it is most likely the video card integrated on the motherboard.
