Question about Fujitsu Siemens AMILO D-7830 Notebook
When turning on the laptop the green light appears computer comes on when will not do anything, thought it might be battery, will a run down battery stop the laptop from booting even when power supply is connected. also trying to charge the battery there is no red flashing light, only a orange flashing light for about one minute. then is nothing.
Sounds like you have an exhausted battery. Even rechargeable batteries must eventually be replaced when exhausted. Try removing the battery and booting the laptop while plugged in. If it works, the battery is exhausted and you'll have to get a new one. If the laptop still doesn't boot with no battery, and you don't hear the whirr of the hard drive powering up and starting to spin, then you have a boot problem.

Try to use a boot floppy, or at least try to boot with the drive installed/attached to see if the laptop tries to access it. You can also look for the reset switch, sometimes an innocuous hole on the base or rear of the laptop - you stick a pen or paper clip in it. Remove any RAM upgrade chips. Frequent source on boot failure if they're the wrong size, speed, or chip config. - this will take it back to the default device settings, in case you changed something that didn't take hold until you tried to re-boot. From the manual: The notebook is prevented from booting by a disk in the floppy disk drive. Check whether this floppy disk is a system disk. Remove the floppy disk. Operating system files may be damaged or missing. Boot the notebook with a system floppy disk, via the floppy disk drive. i If the operating system is reinstalled, all data created up to that point will be lost. Make regular back-up copies of your data. Some laptops have an initialize mode - you press down some keys while booting to reset the setting back to default. I'm not sure what those are in your laptop, but you can check in your manual, or in the store you bought it in. Good luck

Check num lock key of laptop press num lock if numlock key is on and off when you press it then dispaly working fine only issue with screen resolution .
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to start menu ->control panel->display->settings.
Change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
But if num lock is constant when you press numlock key then you need to refix RAM memory.Open back cover of laptop then refix RAM memory.
Then check if still same issue then pull cmos cell from motherboard then check again if still same then try with another RAM .
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you are able to see bios screen then you not need to open back cover of laptop only make sure SATA is disabled and your harddrive is detected in bios.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Tips for a great answer:

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.
To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.
Press the power button if the screen remains black.
Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.
Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.
Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.
Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.
Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.
Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.
If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.
If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.
Hope this helps
