Fujitsu Siemens (v3515 Amilo Pro) laptop problem!

Q: Fujitsu Siemens (v3515 Amilo Pro) laptop problem!

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

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.)

All of the drivers should be available from the manufacturers website.

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 Guys,

Hoping someone will be able to help me... I read lots of post from people having a simillar problem to myself and have seen lots of suggestions but not definitive answers.

The Problem:
I have (had) Vista running on the laptop in question but it has crashed and is asking for the original CD. I do not have this CD nor do I have any form of recovery disk. I do have a copy of XP which I would like to install. However, I am unable to do this due to the fact that XP does not understand the SATA drive.

Thankfully I have a second laptop allowing me to get on to this site to ask you lot!

The Problem continued:
Having read several posts I understand that you need to make some form of CD with XP and HDD drivers on (??) BUT, I can't find the correct drivers nor do I really understand how to go about making such CD.

Is anyone out there in a position to tell me EXACTLY how I go about fixing this? I'm reasonably proficient with PCs but not when it comes to drivers and such like so a step by step instruction list would be ideal!!!

Thanks in advance all!

Adam

Hi - New to the forum!

I'm having a couple of problems with my laptop which is coming upto 2 years old in June and has had quite a hammering! I expected these problems to arrive eventually, although im wondering if they can be fixed before spending out on a new laptop.

My problem started when my AC Adaptor packed in - the end broken inside so I purchased a cheap one off ebay. The charger was rubbish - short wire and it never stayed on charge! So I purchased another cheap reconditioned one off eBay but it was a li shin one and has been working fantastic.

Then, one day I came to boot up my laptop, and I got a blue screen. So I did a reformat and this cured it. Although, doing this lead to other problems - such as the keyboard playing up, when I hit certain buttons such as 'm, v, c and x' they dont on the laptops keyboard. I also got a grinding noise from the laptop fan, so I openned it up and the casing of the fan was getting in the way of the fan itself. So I fixed that by bending up the fan casing (on the motherboard) so it wasn't catching - this worked. But im still faced by the problem of the keys not functioning. Sometimes the keys do work - when I say this I mean they work when the laptop has just been booted up.

Any help or guidence would be appreciated!

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 Member's
Is anyone experiencing problems with a Sagem [email protected] 800 modem when booting up into WinXP sp2 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo A.

I find sometimes the modem ADSL light will continually flash (hasn't syncronised), but the power light is on, even thought the desktop is fully loaded.

I find somtimes a quick flash on the modem lights , and then a flash of a 'Blue screen', then (a sort-of MS-DOS)'Safe mode' option screen appears of which i choose 'Normal Restart', then no modem lights are on when arriving at the 'Fully loaded' desktop point.

But the modem will always work if i unplug, and then plug it back into the USB port, after i'm at the 'fully loaded' desktop stage.

I have installed the latest modem drivers, and my pc is well up-to-date with 'MS Patches & Updates'.

I did visit the 'Sagem' support website page, they suggest turning 'APM' to 'off', but i carn't find where to do that in the 'Bios' (no 'Power Management' tab), or where to change a 'Plug and Play' setting also.

I did try the modem through a 'Powered USB Hub', this didn't make a difference.

I also wanted to update my 'Bios' version, and went to the 'Fujitsu' website, i found the webpage for this, but, i don't understand which link is relevant to my needs, is it the 'ACPI' or the 'Winflash&... Read more

A:Problem with Sagem moden & Fujitsu Siemens Amilo A

I've found that when i defraged my computer, the modem has a better chance of syncing, and then the USB drivers will load, but not everytime.

This must mean that the issue is not with the supplied power from the 'Laptop' or a USB 'hub', but more the order of which everything is loading at boot-up, is there a way to control this?

Is there a way of knowing what the model number is my Amilo A, i've lost my original receipt of purchase, i did look under My Computer > Properties > the General tab, and also Programs > Acessories > System Tools > System Information, and in the 'BIOS', i also looked under the base of the unit. The reason for wanting to know the number is:

a: So i can get more 'RAM'
b: So i can get relevant system hardware 'driver' updates.

Any help would be greatfully received

Hi!

First of all: sorry for my poor English

I have a little problem with my laptop (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v3505 with Intel 3945ABG Wireless adapter):
The WLAN driver installed successfully, and it worked for 1 day - but after a reboot stopped working.
The WLAN LED is black, no activity, and the Network and Sharing Center didn't see any available network.
I tried to solve the problem on the Windows 7 control panel, but it said "try to switch ON the hardware".

I installed the Launch Manager (downloaded from the manufacturer's page, Vista version), and it's running, but when I push the WLAN button nothing happening.

Any idea?

Problem with Fujitsu Siemens Amilo XL SERIES 3220W LCD Screen I have a really annoying problem with my 22 inch Fujitsu Siemens Amilo XL SERIES 3220W LCD screen and I can't seem to find what is wrong. It is only really noticeable in games then in Windows but still can be seen when scrolling a page fast.

Its a defect where when objects on the screen move fast, trails of colour (usually weird colours of purple and green) trail on the edges of the objects. It is perfectly fine with still images or slow moving objects onscreen. This is a really annoying problem and I am not sure whether to take it back in and replace it or if there is some way to fix it. Is there some setting of colour i need to set or what? Please help me

In the main section of your C drive (in theory) is a folder containing all the drivers - if you open the WLAN folder within this, you'll see a list of files and another folder, either called Software, LM or LaunchManager. Run the executable program within this folder. Once all disk activity stops restart the computer and you should find that Fn+F1 has come back

For some reason known only to themselves FS have decided that to gain access to wireless internet on their Amilo laptops (I have an Li2735) you have to turn it on via Fn + F1, it is not automatic.
I have got around this using a .vbs file which runs via Startup (actual file is in Prog Files with a shortcut to it in Startup). Basically the .vbs file runs automatically and conects up the wireless without the need to use Fn+F1.
The .vbs file content is as follows:

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")
do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop
WScript.Sleep 100
WshShell.sendkeys("{TAB}{TAB}{LEFT}~")

My question is this, on occasions this runs fine and the wireless hooks up no problem, the GUI displays momentarily then disappears. On most occasions though the GUI hangs and I have to manually select WLAN then click to connect.
Any advice on how to stop this happening? I thought maybe it has something to do with when Startup actually runs in the start up sequence but don't know how to check this or alter it.

Hi!

I have a problem installing Ultimate on my laptop. When I get to the part of the install where I choose wich hard drive or partition to install it on, the installation doesn't detect any of my hard drives.

From what I've gathered from browsing different forums my problem lies in that I have to install drivers for the disc controller in order to detect the hard drives as I belive the drives are in a RAID-setup, but I can't seem to find the right ones.

From the information in the Controlpanel in Vista (wich I'm currently running) I've gathered that I have a:

* Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller
AND
* Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA storage Controllers - 2850

I've tried to load the drivers for these that I got from Fujitsu-Siemens, but I get the same problem. Could it be that these drivers are just for Vista? And in that case where do I find some for Win7? I've seen posts from people running Win7 on the same laptop so it should be possible to preform the install, but how?

Help greatly appriciated!

When I tried booting my laptop, it signals that Windows has failed and gives me two options: 'launch repair' or 'normal startup'. The latter brings me back to the Window failed position. The former proceeds to show 'windows is loading files' which then goes to a blue screen (maybe what you call BSOD) that shows 'Fujitsu Siemens Computers Recovery'. After that I have the option to 1. Backup recovery default setting or 2. Restore default setting which, of course, would erase all my data.

Since I never backed up my factory default () I insert a dvd and choose the first option which brings me back just there. I've looked at reviews on this laptop and saw a complaint about it's inability to boot from this point. I want to purchase the recovery disk for Windows for this laptop to boot and gain access to my data but I'm afraid it may be a waste as the laptop may not boot from the disk.

I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro v2030 which is slowly dying: I've already replaced the fan and now the hard disk has died completely. Considering the DVD-RW drive has now decided to stop reading DVDs, I've decided it's time to replace both the hard disk and the DVD-RW. I know it's probably cheaper in the long-run to just buy a new laptop, but I'm taking vengeance on this one's numerous shortcomings by refusing to let it die!

According to the manufacturer's website (http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/service...O/Amilo-Pro/Amilo_Pro_V2030.htm#Specification), the old hard drive - a 40gb Samsung disk - was SATA 150. I've been looking around for a new disk and I quite like the look of a Western Digital 320gb drive (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/136790) - however, this is SATAII and thus SATA 3 Gbit/s specification. I've read elsewhere that the new specification is often backwards-compatible, but that some older SATA controllers can't negotiate the speed and may require a jumper. Can anyone advise me on whether or not my Amilo Pro v2030 is such an affected system - or can I buy the SATAII drive and have it work fine without a jumper? Furthermore, will it run at at the old 150 spec or does my system's components support SATAII natively?

Lastly, in terms of replacing the DVD-RW drive: I know that my drive is a Lite-On but I'm not sure of the model number. Getting to the drive requires removal of all sorts of components and I&#... Read more

A:Replacing hard drive and DVD-RW on Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro v2030

I've been trying to repair a colleague's laptop for him, but I'm having a little trouble working out what my best move is.

The system suffered from a reboot loop - which was caused by data corruption. I booted into HirenCD and ran Chkdsk which fixed the majority of the errors.
I was then able to get into Windows, but noticed an awful lot of errors - some system files was unrecoverable and corrupt.
His software was OEM - no CD supplied with it - and me being an absolute idiot decided that using my retail of XP Home would fix the error.
I performed a repair install, which replaced the corrupt Windows installation from before. (I made note of his valid serial number!)

However, his serial number is not valid for my retail copy of the software. I cannot boot into anything other than Safe mode with CMD, as I get booted straight to the main screen with it asking for a valid CD key. Phone activation was also unsuccessful.

I'm trying to minimize data loss, having only intended to replace the corrupt system files.
What are my options for repairing this?

A:Repair installation of XP Home on a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop.

You are too far gone now to do much. Have you tried your XP Home serial key?
If that doesn't work, I would boot into Safe Mode and backup the users files to a USB HDD, then boot off of your Home CD and format the drive and do a clean install. Then restore the backed up files and reinstall their programs.

I've been around a couple of forums and not many people seem to want to help me . Anyway I've just installed windows 8 on this laptop, everything is working fine, it has all the drivers etc. For some reason it does not seem to be picking up wireless. When I press the launch key for wireless absolutely nothing is happening, no blue light nothing, however it can pick up internet with the ethernet cable from the modem. Had a read of this and tried to install the FSC Launch Manager from the Fujitsu website still to no avail. Cant be the operating system either as it the same problem remains when i installed a version of xp yesterday.

In a bit of hole with this so any help would be very much appreciated.

I was wondering if anyone could assist me. I am trying to install a new motherboard and cpu for my parents PC. They bought a Mainboard D1675 and I can not get the hardrive to power up to save my life. I have downloaded the manual from Fujitsu-Siemans website and double check the pin connection settings and the seem to be correct. When I power up the PC, the led ligths stay on, the CPU fan and case fan turns on but I get no reaction from the harddrive, no video from the video card, absolutely nothing. Also the holding in the power button doesnt turn off the system. I have to switch it off in the back. Im sure this is probably a newbie question, but what am I forgetting to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are the specs.

Motherboard: Fujitsu-Siemens D1675 Pentium 4 478 pin DDR333 (800FSB)

CPU: Intel Celeron 2.0GHz 128K 400FSB 478pin

Let me know if more information is needed. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Fujitsu-Siemens D1675 Pin Connector Problem

Looks like it doesn't support that CPU.

The ad at Geeks.com for the board says 'Northwood core only' and doesn't show the 2.0 CPU.

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
