Hi All

Have a Fujitsu Amilo M7400 that will not power up with ac adapter plugged in. I have to remove charger pull battery start up then plug charger in when xp starts. Sometimes have to pull battery several times.

so i decided it was an XP problem.
Backed up important files.
Try to install XP home with supplied recovery CD
Kept getting stuck at 37 mins or shutting down lappy at same point.

So took out HD and connected to my desktop via adapter.
Installed DOS 7.1
Copied the I386 file from supplied CD
Eventually got it to run set up when installed back in laptop.

Now gets stuck at 34 mins when at the 'installing devices' part of set up.
Either gets stuck or shuts laptop down.

Been advised original problem with AC adapter is a bios issue so Ive updated bios but nothings changed.
I only have 4 hairs left on my head.

Anyone have a clue??

It would be gratefully received.
Thanks

Right the bios i used was B2I-S0J.WPH

Is there any other that might solve my problem?

I took the log of the install using setupapi and these are the last bits of the log when it hangs

Yes I appreaciate that, however I thought the copy of the log might point to what the problem actually was with the install as XP was working perfectly before i did the reformat.

Not enough info. The last line of your log only indicates that it is trying to install the ACPI for the CPU.

Sorry but there isn't enough information in that log file for me to be able to help you solve the problem.

Hopefully someone that can will stop in here soon.

Thanks for reply

I have managed to install XP by pressing F7 during initial setup.

After booting from XP setup cd you are asked to press F6 if you want to install raid controllers etc dont but press F7 instead.

This prevents XP from loading ACPI drivers.

Set up ran perfectly from there.
Phew what a pain.

Cant get wifi working now though

Is the device listed in device manager and if so is there a yellow exclamation mark or red x next to it?

No the card has installed and shows to be working.

Icon is in the bottom right corner near clock but shows not connected and cannot detect any networks.

Seems it is a problem with this intel 2200bg card but the fic appears to be a registry or startup file fix. But they are specific to each manufacturer.

Of course nothing out there for the M7400.

You could try removing the present drivers and disabling and removing the wifi card, clean both
sets of contacts and then replace the card and reboot, allow the hardware wizard to detect and
install the card and then install the drivers http://search.intel....ategories=72053

EDIT: Not sure if this will work but may be worth a try http://www.amilo-for...-wont-work.html
It is in German but the images are straight forward and easy enough to follow, good luck.

I have managed to sort the wifi issue by covering 2 pins on the wireless card with tape which bypasses the radio button. This means wifi is permanetly on.

Check post 17 here for a picture
