Just to let you know, that I came into possession of another of these crap Fujitsu-Siemens LCD's (model S7, I think) with the exact same symptoms, replaced caps and now it has been working as my wife's monitor for over a year now, without any problems. (The first one still works, too.)

I use Shock Bookmark.

http://www.docs.kr/e...ad-Shock-Bookmark-en

It is simple, can arrange your "bookmarks" into folders, has a "move to" and "copy to" feature, and can run programs, open folders and URL's too.

Mind you, I have no idea if it co-operates with OpenOffice, but I have yet to find a program that it doesn't.

This seems like a bad-caps problem. Not sure, of course.

I had a 2-year-old Fujitsu LCD that started to come to life longer and longer. In the end, it took about 15 minutes (only green led blinking) for the picture to appear. Then, it was all fine as long as I kept it on. Then I found this:

And voila. I replaced all capacitors (there were about 25, worth about 3 dollars altogether), and although it was a messy job (I'm not that good at soldering), the LCD was all well when I switched it on. The only problem is that I couldn't put the back cover on due to the taller capacitors I could buy. At least it will not overheat (the problem seems to be bad-design: too little space and the main board overheats and the caps dry-out, so they say).


Mind you, when the monitor miraculously came back to life (and now, 6 months later it is still OK), it made me wonder how many Fujitsu LCD's have ended up on scrapheaps around the world, that could have been saved by mere $3 (or better design)...
