Fujitsu Laptop Keyboard Problem

Question: Fujitsu Laptop Keyboard Problem

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi2515 Laptop Running Vista Home Premium.Am finding that after about an hour being switched on the keyboard seems spongy and keys need either double pressing or extra hard press to respond.Am currently in Spain and because of the high temperatures we are experiencing at the moment I bought a laptop cooler tray, which runs off one of the USB ports. Which keeps the machine pretty cool.Doe's anyone else with a Fujitsu Siemens laptop, or any laptop for that matter, have this keyboard problem ?Thanks in advance for any help or advice.Expat1

Answer: Fujitsu Laptop Keyboard Problem

Through looking in the Vista forum this morning, that this could be a problem with Vista compatability with this keyboard. Don't think it's likely but it's a thought. Anyone have any views on this please!Expat1

I have a fujitsu C310 lifebook. I was using a benQ wireless keyboard and mouse. after i installed the benQ hardware and started using the keyboard my laptop keyboard started to display "4" when i hit the u key, "5" when i hit i, and "6" when i hit o, most of the other keys seem to be working fine tho. i have tried uninstalling the benQ hardware as well as uninstalling the drivers in hopes when xp restarts it will install the generic driver to run the keyboard. Any help on what is wrong or how to fix it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Chris

Any help to correct this problem would be appreciated.
I don't know if this is a hardware issue or a software issue. Whenever I press certain letters I get a numeric stroke. For example:

m=0
j=1
k=2
l=3
u=4
i=5
o=6

The only reason I'm able to type this is because I've connected another keyboard up to the laptop.
 

Answer:Solved: Fujitsu laptop keyboard showing wrong characters

Most likely you have some kind of number lock feature on. It's so you can use the letters as you would a number pad on a standard keyboard.

Try to find a key on your keyboard labeled "Num Lock" and press it (you may have to hold down something like an "Fn" key while pushing the Num Lock button).

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.

Apologies for a vague title.Just been to a friend who has bought this laptop about a month ago. click hereHe is upset that when he opens a photo from his digital camera via a card reader it is very wide and narrow. Nothing like how it shows on his Desktop PC. He is asking me how to keep the Aspect Ratio. I know nothing about laptops and even less about Win XP. I have suggested that as this Laptop is "Wide View" and his desktop is "standard" that is the problem. He won't accept that and is adamant that there must be somewhere on the laptop that can show a photo that is, say, 6 x 4 as that and not 8 x 3.Can anyone help please?

Alright, I have been all over the web looking for anyone with the same problem and I can't quite figure out wether its a software or hardware related problem. I have a laptop thats about 4 years old. It runs a Centrino 1.6 ghz processor and 1 gig ram.

It boots and runs fine. I can run all the heavy programs I want with no problems. Its quite stable. When I go to shut the computer down after running heavy loads it freezes at the "Windows is shutting down" Screen. It stays there and I have to pull the battery out to reset it. When I put the battery back in it will not boot for about 5 minutes or so. I can press the button but there is no response. Then all of a sudden it will boot after some time has passed. I am on windows xp pro.

I have completely disassembled and replaced the silicon on the processor. I have also tried switching out the ram. Can't figure for the life of me what could be causing it.

It doesn't have the problem unless it runs a heavy load. Boot down right after bootup is fine. Once its running for a while though, it wont boot down. Has anyone ever experienced this? Any thoughts? I would really appreciate any ideas. Thanks a lot.

Answer:Strange problem with Fujitsu Laptop

you could try Dtemp, it's a small program that monitors your hard drive temperature. See if the temperature is much higher when it won't shut down.

Hi,
I have a problem with my Fujitsu laptop keyboard where some keys don't work at all or sometimes give random characters.

This issue gets fixed temporarily when I run an anti virus scan which performed some general fixes and also checked the keyboard software which seems to be up to date.

But the problem recurs again in a day or 2. And it gets fixed again if I repeat scan, reboot etc.

Can someone please suggest a solution to this recurring problem.

Answer:Fujitsu Amilo m1425 keyboard

Normally on laptops you pry up the part of the case just above the top of the keyboard (be careful, the little clips can be fragile), underneath there are usually a couple of screws holding the keyboard down. If you get that far, there's a little [ribbon] cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard, ease that off the keyboard and the keyboard should come away.

I had a problem with my laptop which is certain key on my keyboard is not functioning. The weird is, it happened without a reason. because after I shutdown doing my work when I turn it on again, I discovered my "s", "d", "g", "h", "\", "m", " left shift", "caps lock" and "~" key did not work at all. I try taking the key off, cleaning underneath, but nothing seems to be working. After that I try to use usb keyboard and it seems the key can be entered. So I thought my hardware is the problem. than I replace into the new one, but still having the same problem. I already waste my money buying new keyboard. Does any one happen to know what sort of problem this is and how I would go about fixing it? Is it related to the registry. My laptop is Acer aspire 4740G, ram 4GB, processor i3 2.4GHz. I hope someone can help me to solve this problem.

I am not sure what the deal is with my laptop. I was downloading a torrent using utorrent and I left it on overnight, connected to the power because I was trying to download a very large file. Well, in the morning, I woke up in a hurry, ran out of the house and when I got home, I opened my laptop (which was still running) and I had a blank screen. I pressed everything and couldn't get anything to come up so I pushed the power button until it turned off. I tried to restart it and my battery and CPU icons light up on the laptop and then you can hear from the fan and then it just turns off again and tries to reboot itself once again. It keeps doing this maybe 6 or 7 times until my battery button stays lit (as if my laptop was turned on) but I don' t hear the fan anymore and my screen is blank and its basically still off.

Yo Guys!
Fujitsu laptop problem. The screen has a pretty specific backlight bug - when the screen is tilted at around 90 degrees or more, the backlight on the left side starts flickering A LOT. Sometimes, if there is too much flicker, the entire backlight panel of the screen may shut off, leaving the screen entirely dark. The laptop has went to repair several times and everyone reported that the issue lies in a single cable which connects the backlight to some main connection thingy. The results after each repair were always the same - when back from repair the laptop works fine for one week then starts going all mumbo jumbo with the backlight again after about a week. Someone told me that if I actually get out a bit more cash they could change some bigger component in the laptop and get it working again (possibly the actual screen, or some kind of matrix thing).

Queston: Is this laptop worth fixing and spending time with? It is currently on W7 Pro 32 bit with no SP1 instaled, it is pretty darn slow, considering the single core AMD @ 2.0 GHz, and the 1GB of DDR2 RAM. The screen itself sucks, it's one of those CrystalClear screens which makes you want to freak out when you bring it out into direct sulight. My original idea (since this is my mom's old laptop - she now has a new one) was to put Ubuntu on it and use it for testing, but the laptop itself sucks so I'm ot sure what to do.

If you have a Windows 7 DVD boot off of that and try the Repair My Computer. if the Startup Repair fails, then you should have the option to do a System Restore, or go to the Recovery Console. In the Recovery Console type in chkdsk /R and hit enter.

Hi
I'm a newbie to this site and would greatly appreciate some help, I have relative computer knowledge on desktop hardware however I have just received a Fujitsu l7320gw laptop and the dvd drive is starting to go bad, Basically it works but you can here it struggling to spin up, sounds like my old playstaion before it gave up. I would just get a external ( I have an old 1.1 memorex cd drive ) however there is no bios setting to allow booting from this surprising as there is usb, floppy, lan, obviously hard drive. So what I am wanting to know is whether there is alternative replacements other than a exact replacement which ive found on ebay but its second hand, Doesn't seem a good idea specialy at 30 quid. So I'm guessing these drives are not universal (good old desktops) anyway of replacing its internals or some cheaper alternative. Failing that how can i make it boot from external tried every setting thats there with drive turned on first. no luck. I use windows on it and need to know I can boot up a windows disk as booting it from usb looks way to complicated! Any help greatly apreciated. Thanks in advance.
EDIT TO POST
I have just noticed that my problem seems to be when it's booting up as when in windows it will work ok it does not have the original version of windows, Pro instead as recovery file got deleted could this be the problem ? However i have installed it's driver cd I'm confused1

Answer:fujitsu c series laptop no screen

Hi. I assume that you are pressing the key sequence to switch to external monitor (usually ctrl+ "key with pic of monitor")

If you can see that everything else works and that there is the usual disk activity at boot up and you cant get an external monitor to work on it. then you need to take it to a specialist for diagnosis or return it to the shop or manufacturer if it is still under warranty.

seems like your graphics adapter has failed and as it is part of the laptops mainboard means you cant just remove it and test it, so you should have specialist diagnose it for you>

I have a Fujitsu Siemens laptop, running XP Home Premium, that now freezes after a few minutes from power-up. This happens with any application; Word, Excel, Firefox, MS IE etc. I can then only continue by switching off, using the power on/off switch. When it powers up again, it does so without trouble, as if Windows had been turned normally. There is plenty of free space on the HDD since I have few programs installed and all my user files are saved to a network drive.

Hi, I am looking for some advice on upgrading the memory on a F/S Amilo Pro v2010 laptop. I have worked on desktop systems, replacing memory, hard drives and DVD / CD players and writers but have never tried it with a laptop.I can get the correct memory from Crucial but what I need is either information on how to access and exchange the memory sticks or a site that can give this info.. I have tried the official F/S site but that only recommends getting the job done by an approved dealer, and I cannot see the point of paying to get some thing done when with a bit of help I should be able to do it myself.All and any advice would be gratefully accepted.Wotan.

Apart from upgrading the memory and perhaps the hard drive theres nothing you can do to a laptop.I don't know the one you have but if its like the ones I have worked on theres only 2 slots and these are underneath one of the screw off panels and you just remove the panel and install the memory and thats it.Its really not differcult, if you have a search for a video on the subject you can easily find one.

Hi There,

Was wondering if anyone can give me some advice. Basically I have a Sony laptop that needs a new LCD and I have a fujitsu siemens laptop with charging issues at the moment. The LCD's on the laptop appear to be the same size, the only difference being the Sony is glossy and the FS one is Matte. Is it possible to put the FS one in the Sony? It may seem like a daft question but I just wanted to check if they'd have the same connections ect before I take everything apart.

Any advice appreciated.

Try getting into the BIOS, When starting the laptop press the F2 key. Once your in the BIOS go to the Boot Menu, the change the boot order so you CD-Rom is first in the order.

Then try to boot from the recovery CD. You will also want to go to Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool download memtest then burn the .iso image to a cd using a image burning software like imgburn; The Official ImgBurn Website

Boot from the memtest CD, then let it run for at least 1 hour or more. If any errors show up you will need to replace your RAM.

Answer:Fujitsu FMV BIBLO NB50K Laptop

Hi Alberni and welcome to the forums

I think we'll need the full hardware specs and serial number of the laptop to be able to track the drivers down accurately as I think these were sold outside Japan using different family names.

I think you have an Intel chipset with maybe Celeron 1.3 and 256Mb of RAM - not sure though, maybe P4, if it is similar in spec to this, try here for the chipset driver.

Maybe here for the graphics.

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo laptop and amd trying to record audio with it. I have two main problems that I'm hoping someone can help with. The first is that, when attempting to record through the microphone jack using a Plantronics headset (which I have used for some time with no problems on my other laptop), I find that the audio has a (to me) rather annoying 'hollow' sound, as though I am recording in a tiled room or, as my father says, in a recording studio. This is all well and good, but I prefer the sound I am used to, which is a more solid sound without echo or hollowness. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to do this. Can anyone help me out at all?Also, I do have a USB adaptor for the headset which I can use, but although this gets the 'solid' sound I'm looking for, there is an annoying buzzing sound over the audio that I can't find out how to get rid of. I have tried with Audacity and the buzzing is very pronounced, but it isn't as loud when I record using Windows Sound Recorder. However, I really don't like using Windows Sound Recorder at all, because I don't like the interface nor the fact that I can't 'tweak' it like Audacity. Is there another program similar to Audacity that I can download as freeware?

Hey,

I have a Fujitsu N Series Lifebook laptop whose monitor is not working. I have hookup an external monitor and it is working just fine. After doing this I opened the montor cover and checked all the connections to the LCD panel itself and unplugged and reseated every connection and also wiggled wires and connections when the system was booted up and found nothing that changed my problem. Also the switch that puts the laptop in standby when the monitor is closed, I could press it down and the monitor would light up for an instant then go back dim. This would also cause it to go into standby mode.

So far in my troubleshooting I have determined the the video card is working and also the cover switch seems to be working properly. You can see the the display on but it is very dim. I have also tried to adjust the brightness with no luck in fixing it.

Is their something that I may have overlooked? If not is their a repair or replacement that maybe possible?

Thanks

Answer:Cracked Screen - Fujitsu Laptop

If it's a newer model, it will probably cost at least a few hundred to replace the screen.
Cheaper option may be to check eBay for the same model that is being sold for parts.
Then either replace the screen yourself or take it to a local repair shop.

Hi All,
The laptop is a Fujitsu siemens E series lifebike:
Recently the wireless connection has been playing up, reporting "limited or no connectivity" or being connected, but not wanting to access the internet:

When left to be configured automatically, it comes up with some strange values:
It reports "Limited or No Connectivity" and when you look at the details:

IP Address: 169.254.203.253
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 169.254.203.253

Every other field is blank, that struck me as really quite odd, so I went and manually configuring it. Giving it IP address 192.168.1.12 (any number which doesnt clash) the default subnet mask and a gateway of 192.168.1.1 (the address of the router). I retrieved the DNS addresses from another computer (by accessing the rooter page from it)

It immediately say it is connected (not limited or no connectiivity) but it is only sending out data, not recieving any. It cannot access the router page or any websites and although it says it is connected, it clearly isnt.

I do not think it is a problem with the router as we have another laptop and it is working fine (on the wireless). It is a problem that has turned up very recently also. We have just got a new Vista PC but I think that is just a coincidence. (We are not totally sure when it started playing up)

We have tried restarting the laptop and the router, also.

Any advice??
Thanks,

Answer:dell laptop, fujitsu HDD, need to low level format

There is a diagnostic and an erase utility. Most manufacturer's put all the utilities on the DOS version but I'm not sure about fujitsu.

I'm wondering if you are having a problem with your RAM. Maybe remove one module and then try an install to see if it goes any further.

I have installed a Cruical 1gig memory upgrade to my laptop but it only shows up as 512mb in bios and windows. Cruical say that I need to flash the bios with the latest update. Is this right. I donot want to try this unless it will fix the fault as I understand if it goes wrong then the laptop will be a scrapper. The upgarde is a single module and fitted in the first slot after removing the original 256mb module. Refitting the original module the bios shows correctly 256mb. Any Ideas?

"Cruical say that I need to flash the bios with the latest update. Is this right."Probably - Crucial are generally regarded as a trustworthy and competent company.However if you want someone to confirm what they said, you'll have to post details about your system and motherboard.

Can anyone help? I seem to be having problems with what I think is my laptop overheating and despite speaking to various people cannot get the problem sorted. I think that is is a simple problem of the bios needing updating. I have downloaded the latedt bios update from Fujitsu however cannot get it to work. The file is a WinImage self extracting file which I have saved to a floppy and tried to boot from as the readme file says however my sytem just says 'starting windows 98 and indicates the a:\' (I'm currently running xp so now i'm really confused!) I have rechecked the bios information and it has not upgraded it at all ~ where am i going wrong? On the bios notes it says that it has been updated 5 or 6 times since I bought my laptop just over 12 months ago and the last 2 upgrades have been for overheating problems, if only I could get this upgrade to work I might have a system that would stay on for longer than 10 minutes! If anyone could help or point me in the right direction (perhaps there is a problem with the bios I have been supplied?) I would appreciate it very much.

I had thick white vertical line going through middle of the screen.
I thought it is monitor problem so I put my spare wxga screen to test it.
However, I could see nothing from spare screen and when I connected old one,
it only showed white screen.
The old one was xga screen and I found out it usees same 20pin connector but different cabling. I thought it might be cable damage so I replaced it with new screen along with inverter and video cable but I am getting the same white screen on boot up.
so I removed back light cable and left video cable to see if it shows anything and that did not show anything. I left back light on and no video cable and that showed same white screen.
Due to the fact that external monitor is working, I don't think video card is damaged.
I think connecting wxga monitor onto xga connection messed up the motherboard
but how can I fix the motherboard?
I read something about reflow soldering in the oven but will that fix the problem in the case like mine?
