[Pa 2663] Boot problems

Postby asciimonster » Tue Sep 01, 2009 21:54

I've been having trouble with my Scaleo Pa 2663. I'm having a variety of problems including:
- Sudden system freezes.
- Sudden system resets.
- No BIOS start.
- Unexplained kernel exceptions/BSOD while startup. However, after a reset, the system loads fine.

Looking back this has always happened now and again since I bought it. But it got steadily worse. In fact, this is my third attempt to create this post. The computer crashes almost every time I try to boot. Eventually, when the system warms up it does work without problems.

A typical "cold" boot would go something like this:
- Switch on PC.
- System boots fine
- After a few minutes (approx. 5 min.) the system freezes. (Even mouse will not move across screen)
- Ctrl-Alt-Del DOESN'T WORK. (doesn't work as in no response from the system...I mean it's really frozen)
- Press Power button -> No change.
- Keep Power button pressed -> It switches off.
- Press Power again -> Now several of the following can happen:
* Fans start spinning but nothing else happens. Even the monitor stays in low-power mode.
* BIOS welcome screen is shown but will not go to second screen.
* BIOS goes to second screen but will not load any further.
* BIOS completes successfully but OS fails to load with odd message or BSOD.
* BIOS and OS load successfully, but either locks up or reboots itself after a few minutes.
- Switch off power and try again
-> This cycle repeats a few times, with varying degrees of success.
- For nu reason the system suddenly boots completely and works flawlessly until I switch it off for the night.

To rule out software failure I've tried:
- Reinstalling OS.
- Trying different OS (other than Vista) from boot disk.
- Installing other OS and run that.
=> All the OS's have the same symptoms. This indicates that this is hardware related, not software related.

Other things I've tried:
- Switching unit on with power cord detached. Then plug black in and start -> Didn't help.
- Install BIOS update -> Didn't help.

I sincerely do not hope any of you recognize these symptoms. But if you do please help me, I'm out of ideas.

Browsing through this forum I noticed other people have posted boot/freezing problems as well. I see at least 5 messages on the first page alone. Perhaps Fujitsu could look into this.

I'm going to replace this unit. It's a shame, it's just be 1.5 years old.

go to http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/com/suppo ... loads.html

you can download most of the drivers from there, then after installing, backup or image your disk.
Use anti virus, backup your data, use google.
POST BACK EVEN IF THE HELP DOESN'T HELP.

A Thank You would be nice if I have helped.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags

Hi there,

I'm currently helping a friend, who has these exact same symptons.
Has anybody found a solution to the problems?

Thanks,
Richard
