Problems with my Amilo M3438G laptop

Q: Problems with my Amilo M3438G laptop

Hey all!
Ive been having some trouble with my video card.
Ive had this laptop for over a year now and its been working great.
Allthough about two weeks ago I formated it and I have been installing fresh operating system and software on it now for some days.

But when I tried to run Counter strike: Source the fps had droped from a steady 50fps to below 20fps.
Not fun!

So now I have been buting my arse of finding new stuff and drivers to clean the computer and all that s*** but nothing happens.
So I found this great place

Now I am wondering a few things since I am very new to tweaking my system and increasing its performance.

Some quotes and questions:

1.
"I have flashed GeForce with 39.60 rom and it went without a problem (this is a must for any Amilo 3438 / 4438 owner)."

What does this mean and how do I do it?
2.
"Or you might have vsync set to on in control panel. Set it to application preference in order to achieve best performance."

Same again, what does that mean and how do I do it?

3.
"Amilo M3438G, 1,73GHz/512MB upgraded to x1800 (stock settings)"

What does the last part mean (upgraded to x1800)?

There is so much that I dont know how to do and I dont know what is wrong.
Sorry for my incompetense...itas hard beeing a nebie.
So to all you AmiloM3438G users here...
What did you do to upgrade you laptop?
And how do you do that?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,

I have an Amilo M3438G.

I installed Windows 7 a year ago (originally with xp) and just realised that Sleep Mode doesn't work - it's greyed out:



How can I get it back?

Do I have to change a registry or change a driver?

Please help!

My husband's laptop is stuck on the windows error message (is this known as the blue screen) and whatever option you choose it just keeps repeating the same rubbish and rebooting itself. I dont know what he tried to do but I think he tried to connect to the internet with a wireless modem and somehow everything is screwed up big time.

a) Cant get it to function from the CD drive
b) Cant get into Windows to do any type of restore
c) When putting in Windows XP disk it doesnt read hard drive
d) When I change set up to read CD drive first still does nothing
e) Downloaded recovery disks from internet but laptop doesnt read them - work fine on PC
f) tried removing battery for 30 mins and pressing F keys to no avail
g) Manufacturer no help (Fujitsu Siemens) - want £50 for a recovery disk when we didt get one and bought laptop from new.
h) no vital info on laptop

Been trying for 3 days now to get it sorted but cant seem to get any further

Anyone got any ideas of what else I can do?????

Thanks

OS: windows XP home edition (5.1, Build 2600) service pack 3
BIOS: Ver 1.00parttblh
Processor: Intel Cerleron M CPU 430 @1.73GHz

the problem is one day the internet connection just died, it has built in wire less and for some reason the CD drive reads discs only when its in the mood for it...
the problem I am trying to address first is the lack of network capabilities.
there is a physical button on the computer which allows me to activate the wireless card, the light comes on but I am still unable to find any networks with this light illuminated.
If i plug in an Ethernet cable the laptop recognises the connection but simply stays in the 'acquiring network address; state. On the support tab its says
'invalid IP address' and on clicking repair its says can not complete because following action was cannot be completed:

The network is a home network run off a normal router and i dont think this is an issue as I have two other desktops workin with no problems, therefore i wont include details of that here...

with the wireless it just seems its not recognising the fact its turned on at all...
when i try searching for a network i get the generic:

I inherited an old xi3650 fujitsu laptop with the super spec [twin hdds , 18.4 hires screen, blueray, bluetooth, wireless, multi card reader HDMI remote control etc etc ]which is running superbly on win 10
Unfortunately it has an intermittent problem of a dark screen i.e. back lights turning off
I have stripped the beast and checked all connections and narrowed the cause to the magnetic lid sensor switch being sticky but does anyone know
Where it is sited ?[The small strong magnet is in the lid behind the screen bezel so I presume the switch will be mounted on the main board where the magnet meets the speaker trim panel]
Is t a magnetic reed switch?
What is specification ?
Could it be disconnected or short circuited [Is it normally open or closed]
How do I get at it ?
Is it possible to degauss insitu?

I've looked through the forums to find ways of installing XP on my laptop as it has SATA drives.

The one that looked the best was to create my own installation CD, I installed Klite, ripped my XP SP2 CD, added the drivers from C:\DRIVER\SATA\INTEL. Burnt a bootable ISO. I thought this would be the end of my problems. Unfortunately the installation still doesn't recognise the drive.

Does anyone have any Idea what I should be doing differently?

You have to have XP drivers for the SATA drive. Go to the site of your motherboard and find the XP SATA drivers specific for your board. There may be a number of drivers included in a download package for a number of similiar chipsets, but you must choose the driver specific for YOUR chipset.

That is the driver you need to include in your nLite CD, and you have to add the driver in the TEXTMODE section of the nLite build.

Hi!

So I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li2732 And the old 250Gb HDD just went blank and now when i try to install windows xp pro on it the setup starts but it says:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
---Windows XP Professional Setup
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.

Make sure any disk drives are powered on and properly connected
to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is
correct. This may involve rinning a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic
or setup program.

Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.

I can see that the computer can find the hdd in the bios and when i ran a ubuntu live cd it also found the hdd..!

I have tried with an other (60Gb) HDD and I have also tried with Windows 2k and Vista Ultimate but I just get the same result with it...

So What to do..?

Good morning. Greetings from Cape Town

I have been using new 160 GB 2.5 IDE WD Scorpio Laptop Hard Drive 160 2.5" in an external USB caddy while I have been sorting out the programmes and data on my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo LI 1720.

The hard drive has been working well and I now want to install in the laptop to replace the existing 80GB WD Scorpio hard drive.

I've checked through all the necessary steps to be taken to physically change the drive and have used WD's Lifeguard to partition the drive as well as copy the boot information and programme files.

The one point which I'm not clear on and which I hope somebody can help with an answer is: How do I get Windows XP to recognise the new drive as the C:\ drive so that the programme settings and registry are retained ?

At the moment using the 160GB on a USB port Windows recognises it as either F:\ or G:\ and I seem to remember from some time ago that Windows will not allow a change of name or path for the system boot drive.

Is there a simple solution or do I have to start from a completely new Windows installation ?

Hope you can help.

Best wishes
BillPCT
 

A:Installing new hard drive on FSC Amilo LI 1720 laptop

You may have great difficulty doing this... Windows XP is controlling, and it may detect the hard drive as an install moved from one computer to another, and shut down as part of the Microsoft Anti-piracy security.
If it does that, you will not get it to do anything using a restore or recovery disc set. You need to install it as a new install after saving all the data to a cd or flash drive.

Hello guys, I got my Amilo Pro (Fujitsu Siements) v3515 laptop 1 or 2 years ago with Windows XP (SP2, non-genuine) installed on it (without getting any kind of CD/DVD) + all the drivers needed for my laptop!

Story:

I got a modem on my PC which has also wireless internet and connected it to my laptop also. Everything went well until I got a "genuine remover" since I got that stupid "You may be a victim of software enc...".
After I re-booted my computer AVG detected the whole Windows as being a virus...
I had to format the hard disk and install a new Windows (Windows XP Corporate Edition SP3).
Now I don't have any of drivers for my laptop.. (such as the Wireless internet icon at the taskbar) or sound card driver or video card driver etc.

I really need them and I tried lots of things but didn't work.


Please guys help me, I don't want to pay anyone to do that for me because I know I can do it by myself!



Thanks in advantage

Try going into safe mode. If that works then your laptop display setting is set to a too high resolution. Certain LCD external monitors won't handle beyond 1024x768.

Hello

I switched my operating system from Vista to Xp on my Amilo la1703 (After i checked that the drivers was available at fujitsus download page) everything works fine exept for the Wlan. I have tried the drivers from Fujitsu but they don´t work, Xp doesn´t seem to lokate the Wlan device. I tried to install the drivers in add hardware and I get a wireless con but it doesn´t find the wireless network, Had my Dad here with his comp and it finds it right away so it´s my comp that doesn´t work. I schuld probably just reinst. Vista and live with a slow comp. It can be that Xp doesn´t support the wlan device but then they should remove it on the download page.

since there isnt any settings for fans in BIOS then i was wondering if theres any ways to change fans settings. Speedfan shows Fan1-3 on 0 rpm.

any useful programs or tips on how to configure fans without cracking it open (not my computer) will be much preshieated..

A:Amilo Pa 3515 fans

Unless the fans are connected directly to a fan header on the motherboard and not connected to a molex connector from the power supply, there isn't anything Speedfan or any other software can do.

If they are connected to a molex connector, then there are basically 2 options,

1. replace it/them with fans that do connect to motherboard fan headers

2. use a fan controller something like this,

Hi all

I Have an Amilo L7310GW which will not boot. When I press the power button the battery indicator light comes on, green, the hdd light flicks for a split second, goes off, then a stable wireless indicator light comes on for a few seconds, the hdd clicks, hdd indicator flashes, then the cycle starts again. This will happen 10 times before the Amilo remains stable with just the wireless indicator and the green battery indicator (cable not plugged in). During this time the lcd remains blank.

Things tried:
1 Tried an external monitor.
2 Removed battery, did a hard reset, plugged power cable in.
3 Reseated Ram, swapped modules around.
4 Tried to enter bios.
5 Tried to boot up from DVD (with a linux type boot disc).
6 Checked for dust and fluff in cpu fan (working).
7 Turned on without the hdd.

NOTHING

What I neglected to say is that a friend gave me the laptop unworking but can shed no light on how it got in this position. Strange. When I look inside the wireless card compartment, the card appears to be missing with a loose antenna cable dangling inside.

Any help with this would be extremely appreciated.

Hi guys/gals.

Sorry if I've posted in the wrong section as there is no other heading that fits this problem. Mods please move if inappropriate.

I have a Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO Li1818 laptop. Everything has been working ok for the past year that I've had it until a week ago. I generally turn the laptop on so its starting up with I sort the charger and leads out. A week ago I pressed the start button but nothing happened I plugged in the mains and pressed the start again and it would start. I noticed if you check the charging it says 0% available, (plugged in not charging). If you unplug it, it just dies no power. I checked the charger which is 20v DC and it showed 19.8v for a split second then open circuit. I checked it a few times and it showed the same reading. Now it must be getting a feed from the mains because if you unplug it goes dead. I have a new 12v charger that I bought so I could use it in the car and that shows the same result (plugged in not charging).

I've had one reply back from Fujitsu Technology Solutions - Forum where I first posted this problem.

A:AMILO A7640 drivers

Hi there,

Yes, XP Home and Pro use the same driver layers. All drivers that work for one will work for the other. And in most cases where you cannot find a driver for XP at all, Windows 2000 drivers use a driver layer that is almost identical as well. The XP Home drivers will work fine.

Hope this helps.

Suppose to say
First post here hope its in the correct place.

Anyway the other day i downloaded sound card drivers for my Fujitsu Amilo pro, everything was working fine until i went to turn it on the following day and i got a error message saying
HDD not detected...
I then tried to install Windows XP and this was saying that it couldn't detect the HDD either. I called Fujitsu yesterday and was told that there was a problem with my HDD and that i would need to get a new one. I have taken the HDD from one of my previous laptops (booted fine) and tried to boot of that but when it starts to load windows a blue screen pop up for a mila second and then it restarts.

I have since tried installing XP on my new HDD but after the part where it copys file the system restarts and tries to boot the old version of XP and i am now baffled and dont have any idea on where i should go from here.

P.s. both hard drives are Hitachi.

Thanks in advanced for any help

Try removing the battery. Aside from that, hardware issue (ie: motherboard and/or power circuitry).

Hi

I'm looking at buying the above but not found much in the way of reviews; anyone any thoughts on this? Anyone got one/heard anything?

It's stand out choice it seems for a sub-£500 laptop with 4gb ram, 2mb l2 cache, intel dual core for photoshop, but anyone any thoughts let me know!

Hi, I have a amilo Li1718 and when i boot it up nothing shows up on the screen, i have tried connecting it to a stand alone monitor but still nothing show. When booted up it shows the power is on as the light is on, the hard drive light comes on for a few seconds then goes off again. i cant even get into the bios settings. Once or twice it has booted up fine but after about 15-20mins of using it, the screen just goes blank.
please help asap
your help will be greatly apprecaited.
 

A:Amilo Li1718 Screen problem

Have you checked the RAM? If you have 2 sticks in there, try removing 1 and boot. If that doesn't work swap RAM over. It could also be a faulty memory module....
Other culprits.....wireless module and CPU. (I've been brief as you say experience is advanced!)

On my Toshiba laptop the stripe at the top of the keyboard pops off and the 2 screws are there .....however yours may not be the same but have a look at the top and see if there is a plastic cover that pops off.

Here's a site but only for Toshiba but might give you an idea

Just thought I'd share this as it took me while to locate everything to do this.

This applies to a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi 2528 - you can probably figure out how to get the correct drivers for other Amilo models from this information.

Installing Windows 7 onto an Amilo requires SATA drivers to enable the installation process to see the hard drives - otherwise you wont see any at all.

When installing, you are given the option to browse for the correct drivers, and if you put the correct drivers onto a USB flash drive - either before installation, or during (using another computer) you can locate them during the install and you'll then be able to see the hard disks, and choose where you want to install to.

I previously posted this in an Amilo forum, so I'll just c&p it here:

=======================
I found the correct drivers here:
ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/jmb36x/XP_Vista_Win7/

I downloaded this particular file (this was the only one with Win7 in the title - although there was one called Win7 eSata, but that's for external sata drives):
JMB36X_WinDrv_R1.17.47WHQL_WIN7.zip

Unzipped it all onto a USB flash drive, then when W7 installation asked where to browse to, I browsed to this directory on the USB stick:
JMB36X_WinDrv_R1.17.47WHQL_WIN7\R1.17.47.14\Driver\x32

I don't know if all of this information will apply to every Xi2528 model but it works for me, and I hope it works for you too.

I've also made the zip file available here, for your convenience:

Thank you so much Curt.

You saved my laptop from reboot loop hell. While attempting to upgrade to 7 it failed and the MS remedies would not work as the Repair function couldn't see any of the hard drives ... until i used the drivers you posted.

Cheers!

hi im new so not to sure if this is the right place but..... i have an amilo la 1703 for almost 2 years which worked fine up until recently... since i have been unable to watch videos on youtube or any other media type site, the videos are very glitchy and behind the sound which seems ok.. i have always used it for this purpose without a problem. My memory was getting a bit full so deleted and moved alot to free up space but did not help, i also read on other forums about updating bios which i did but did not help either.. has anyone experienced this and fixed it- it is extremely bad in full screen. i run on windows vista basic and an AMD sempron processor..

Hi I have just install Windows 7, I updated the graphics driver through windows update to Via Chrome 9 HC IGP WDDM 1.1 . After restarting once Windows has loaded I can only see a black screen and nothing else.
I have had to go into safe mode and uninstall the graphics driver.
I am now running standard VGA drivers, just wondering if any one else has had this problem and if there is a solution .
Thanks

you shouldn't update drivers through windows update...go to the mfgr's website... i.e realtek,intel.ect

Hi. My keyboard is suffering from a peculiar perversion: the function key seems to be thought to be pressed down all the time, so when I type the 'u' key it comes out as a 4. However, if I hold down the function key it types the correct letter. My operating system is windows 7 and the model is fujitsu amilo 3560.

I just got myself a 2nd hand Amilo Pro V2010 and installed Windows XP. I downloaded the audio and video drivers, installed them and everything is honkey dorey...only problem is that when I insert my flash drive nothing happens. The little light on my flash drive doesn't go on and it looks like the notebook is not even aware that there's something plugged in...I read up on it on the internet and apparently I have to upgrade my BIOS, which I did, but still nothing. My flash drive works on my desktop at home and at work perfectly, no problems...do you have any suggestions?
