The fault lies with the graphics card which is no longer being integrated in the notebooks.

Hi, I have had a 1556 lying around for about 8 months that started playing up with the graphics. Couldn't buy a card back then for less than a couple of hundred so was going to strip it down and sell on ebay for spares. Never got round to it and was looking on ebay and found a card for £59.99 took a bit of a risk as it was an 8600M 'GT' and no one knew if it would work and said it needed a 'GS'. Took the chance and with a beta driver downloaded from Nvidia site glad to inform it works perfectly. Hopefully this later card has had the gluing problem sorted but i am going to do a bios upgrade or do the temperature fiddle to get the fan on sooner and faster. Must say the computer is one of the best I have had for graphics quality and speed. Maybe I will sell it on though while its a runner as it looks good machine. `

Fujitsu siemens amilo pro v200 problem!

this could be a corrupt usb controller or web cam driver; but before we get too deep when it is booting up press F8 and you will get a menu, one of which will say, start windows with 'last known good configuration', highlight line the press enter for a restart. If no luck with boot up come back.
