Bought this laptop from a carboot for my children and am trying to put XP Home on it (OEM bought from ebay) but keep getting the following error:
'Setup did not find any hard disc drivers installed in your computer'.
I did not get any other discs with the computer.
Could someone please help me with this.
Am a complete PC idiot - sorry :-/

It's possible the (internal) hard disk is broken or missing.

P.S. I have the 7010 model and if it's anything like mine the hard disk is held in a caddy at the front secured by one screw. Remove the screw and push down in the little 'dimple' and then pull the caddy out. It's easy to replace and I upgraded mine from a 30GB to 100GB hard disk for just over £50.

It is definately working. It turns on and boots to windows already on it, but has lots of errors. Was advised to buy new software and reload new system as didn't get any discs with it.

In that case if you can get to Windows Explorer, right click on the drive and select Properties then the Tools tab you have the option to run Error Checking. Select Check Now and place a tick in the two check boxes. You may have to reboot for this to run. If the disk is failing this might break it though.

It won't let me do anything really..!
I've been told that I may need the drivers and utilities CD which should have come with the laptop ..!
Have been to the fujitsu website and can't see that I can get one.

If you go here click here you should be able to find the relevant drivers and software.

Now i'm really confused ..!!
Definately don't know what I'm looking for :-/
Sorry - I am a complete PC idiot.
Might be easier/quicker for me to put it in a shop to get it done.

I've downloaded this, told XP to use them and now i'm getting:
'the file txtsetup.oem could not be found'
What have I done wrong..?

Sorry - i'm a REAL PC idiot.
What does that mean..?
I've downloaded the file straight to a floppy. Was this wrong..?
