  1. hi, i have a fujitsu siemens laptop, model number MS2228. I can turn my laptop on and the screen to boot it up comes on (where it says f12 for setup), then that screen goes off, and then i am left with a black screen with a flashing dash. I have tried pressing f8 at the beggining to start a system restore, but this doesnt work and any other button i press it just beeps. My operating system is windows vista.

    Please try and help me,

    First things to check would be the operating system and the hard drive. You can try running chkdsk on the drive using the vista cd/dvd or try doing a repair from the vista install disc.

    thanks for replying,
    i was just wondering, with the vista install disc, did i have to install it onto my laptop for it work, or can i just use it for the first time?
