Question about Fujitsu M2010 Notebook

1 Answer

Hello, I have a fujitsu M2010 netbook and while I was installing an external dvd writer software i was asked to click for the computer to restart. Doing this, the screen went total black and only the little mouse arrow could be seen. The only little blue light on, is the one in the middle between the three on the left side of the mouse control pad. Fn + F10 does not help. In order to turn the device off I have to remove the battery. After I switch it on, I can see the windows logo for a while and then, black again except the little arrow. Can you help me please? thank you Nikos

    the computer can be started and be put on and off by using Ubutnu but windows is idle. I have to remove the battery to put it off power.

    No I do not have important files on the computer. It's ok even if I loose them all. It looks like it happened because it is time for me to know all the goods of Ubutnu as well!
    Ezrahite, thank's a lot for your assistance.
    be always well

    Hi - when you tap F8 do you have an option to select safe mode? Can we try power drain.Can you try to remove the batter for 3-5 minutes to drain the power then after that plug it back in then try to check if you will be able to boot normally or with safe mode

  • Rofel Lantican

    Do you have important files on the computer? can you do a backup incase you have using ubuntu? If it wont work after the power drain it seems that the operating system got corrupted after installing the burning software and the solution is to do a OS reinstallation on the computer

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything

If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.

It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

Trying to use Pioneer DVR-XD10 USB 2.0 external DVD/CD writer to install win7 and getting no driver error


this is a usb drive, the computer does not know you have an external drive, cause there is no operating system to be able to read it.

if you need to install a new Windows 7 on your computer, and you don't have an internal CD/DVD reader, i suggest you try to install it from a USB.
refer to these links for more information:

Then, after you install the Windows 7 first, then you will be able to install the Pioneer DVR-XD10 and use it. I don't think you can do it the other way around.

good luck.

I have a Nikon L22 coolpix camera, i have the cd that came with it but i have a netbook and can't use the cd to Download software. where can i get the software for free so i can put it on my acer...


Nikon doesn't offer the software for free download.
But there are many ways to get your software installed from disk. I also have a netbook without optical drive:
1.The simplest way is to ask a friend to copy all CD content on a memory stick, then you can install the software from this stick.

2. You can also use a USB external CD/DVD, and connect it to your netbook.

3. Other way is more complicated but also works: if you have another computer with CD/DVD, you can share this drive via network and map it on your netbook. Then you can use the CD/DVD drive as connected directly to your netbook.

Hope it helped.

External acer dvd rw drivers required


if you are connecting a external dvd writer assumably via usb i dont think you need drivers as
windows should normally find and load the dvd writer when connected to the usb

if this is the case
please try at least 2 different usb sockets

leave the writer in the usb and do a restart
if windows still do not reconise the writer
please go to device manager
go up to the top to the tabs
and hover your mouse over them until you find the one that says
scan for new hardware
then click the scan for new hardware
windows may or may not at this stage reconize the writer
then leaving it pluged in do another restart
and hopefully windows should now reconize the writer

hope this has helped you
many thanks

I checked up on it a little and it looks like netbooks don't come with the required codecs for DVD audio. I think this should do the trick though:;contentBody;1d Either that or try to find the correct codec manually.

Had to roll back my computer now i cant find the install disc for my hp 940d dvd need the nero and light scribe disc any info would help

If the DVD-writer was factory-installed, then you can contact HP, and order a replacement CD that will contain the NERO and LightScribe software.
Cost will be under $20 for the CD, and about $20 for courier-delivery.

Or, instead of NERO, access
and download "Ashampoo Burning Edition 6". It is _free_ software.
Version 9 of the software is better, but it's not free.

I don't have any substitutes for the LightScribe software.
