    I have a fujitsu lifebook ah 530 core i3 processor 15.6 screen, its fair condition, few screws missing one corner a little warped from heat ( put down near the camping stove in the back of my discovery ) not horrendous just a small bit on the corner, the hard drive has died, but it has a windows COA sticker for Win 7 ( home premium ) has a few scratches and marks, as it was used a lot for digital OS mapping on the move , it does work perfectly though, the screen is ok, the battery is fine, comes with a charger and I don't want a lot for it, 50 quid delivered if its any good to you

    Hi jaspermycat, if you pm me an e.mail address I will send you some pics, the warp on the corner is so small a pic may not show it, the hard drive didn't actually fail, it was working fine, I booted it up one day and it automatically started updating to windows 10, which I didn't want, so foolishly not knowing about the roll back facility, I powered it down, which has corrupted everything, I have tried everything to recover it, but have had no success, as I can't get it booted to wipe the hard drive of all the documents on it, I would remove the hard drive for that reason.

    by the way the hard drive caddy would be in the machine

    Cheers Chris

    No, as i can't get it to boot to wipe it, the only way i can not let it go with sensitive documents on is to remove the drive, unless you know something i don't as to how it can be wiped without first being booted to windows, i am no expert

    I am in Plymouth Devon, I have looked at the Hirens thing, I don't have a blank cd, I tried to get the usb stick version, but it was to complex, if you can e.mail me a file I can just drag and drop to a usb stick, I will give it a go, bear in mind though I priced it sans hard drive, if it comes with a working 500 gb drive, I would like to clear £50 on it, I have PMd you my e.mail address.

    Cheers Chris
