I have a problem with my Fujitsu – Siemens Scaleo 600.
Motherboard: Fujitsu-Siemens 1625-A
Bios: 4.06 rev.1.07.1625
OS: Windows XP Home Edition
I had two IDE hard drives:
The original Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 and 7200.7 Plus family 120Gb
a Maxtor 40Gb I took from an older PC and installed later.
Everything worked perfect for many years no problems what so ever.
Now I installed a SATA hard drive Western Digital WDC WD10EADS-00M2B0 1Tb. For this I took the 40Gb Maxtor out since the SATA had to be mapped to the secondary IDE interface.
In the bios I changed the hard drive configuration to S-ATA 1 / 2 + P-ATA 1 / 2.
At first everything appeared to work fine. The system starts up as it should. All drives are present and accessible. However once the system has gone to sleep I can’t wake it up again. I hear the drives start running but my screen stays black and when I switch power of the screen off and on again a message appears saying “no signal going to sleep”. The only solution than is to shut the PC power off and on and do a cold restart.
If I disconnect the SATA drive the not waking up problem is gone.
I looked (using my system ID number) for a bios update and found one on the Fujitsu site. However I am not entirely sure that it really is for my mother board. It is in an ISO file and my manual only gives a procedure for a bios update from floppy.
Also I understand that a bios update is a last resort since the system may die permanently if anything goes wrong.
Does anyone know what’s wrong here? What should I do?
