My laptop works fine only when I continuously press and hold any key on the keyboard or the frame near the touchpad.
Laptop type: Fujitu-Siemens Amilo M 7440G
OS: Windows XP SP3
If I (re)boot the laptop it always freezes in the “XP startup screen”. When I press any key on the keyboard, hold it, the booting continues… When I lift my finger and release the key I was holding, the booting stops, press down any or same key on the keyboard again and the booting continues, when booting complete, the touchpad and keyboard will not work, when I again press and hold any key I can use the touchpad and type/use the keyboard… to be short my laptop works perfect if I press and hold (doesn’t have to be hard, even when pressed gently) any key on the keyboard, or if I move and hold up or down the connection place where the battery is connected to the motherboard (it's possible only when the battery has been taken out ).
From visiting the Fujitsu-Siemens website/forum I know that there is at least one more user of the exact same laptop that has the same problem.
I’m very interested/curious on what you will have to say about this and by all means very much obliged for it.
