Question about Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook C2230 Notebook

1 Answer

Auto shutdown and troubled startups.

Ma Fujitsu Lifebook c2230 occasional crashes or shutsdown on its own. Usually while doing something relatively processor intensive, but nothing it hasn't been able to do in the past. Startup is also an issue. The Fujitsu screen will appear, then it will often just shutdown again, before booting windows. I usually need to try 3 or 4 or more times before it finally boots up properly. It seems to be more of a hardware problem than a software problem, but I don't know. Maybe a good old fashioned reformat will do the trick, but I wanted to check if this is a known issue.

Yes it sounds as if it's a hardware fault, maybe a processor overheating by the sound of what you say, just check around all the vents and gently hoover them incase there is a circulation problem and the processor is shutting down. It could also be a failing memory module, you can download a programme to test this called 'memtest' if you do a google on it, but alas not a processor test.

I have dell laptop.Cursor is showing. caplock on

No display? but you have an mouse cursor showing? So you must have an display and it is locking on startup of the OS. Do you have an bootable cd? If not lets try to start it up in safe mode..
1: power down system
2: on power up hit the F8 key keep taping it till you get display saying startup in safe mode.
3: start up in safe mode no network.
4: if it starts up to an desktop then its an driver or software which you have installed causing normal startup to stop.
If it doesn't start in safe mode we will have to boot to an OS CD.
Let me know how these first steps go..
