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.
