Hello pistolingo, I am now experiencing exactly same kind of problems with the graphic booster.
Fan goes wild everytime I plug power in the unit. Not even connected to laptop the fan starts to blow air as crazy.
Edit: That is not a problem, but when I turn off the laptop, the graphic boosters fan stays on for ever. It wont stop until I unplug the power.
Now going to Fujitsu service, lets see how long my booster repair takes time
Yeah the fan also got me freaked out :P
Fujitsu fixed that one just fine. Didn't even take two weeks
Got my Booster back today. They say the Booster isn't broken, but changed the Booster's "mainboard" anyways. They claim to have put the Booster to a 72hour stress test and say they didn't find anything.
Still got the same issues with my PC locking up when plugging in. And I noticed that if I have the Booster plugged in the PC will get a "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE"-Bluescreen after about half an hour... wierd the Booster worked for 2 days the last time they changed the "mainboard" and now it doesn't O.o
Either it's really some kind of driver issue and I should reinstall Win7 or my cable and/or Notebook is fried :-/
Going to call support once again maybe they have some advice.
Now I have to send the Notebook to Fujitsu. Seems like the DVD Drive is broken. I would like to throw that piece of !*#? out of the window .
Just wanted to reinstall Windows 7 when the Setup froze and I had to interrupt the setup with rebooting. Since then it does no longer recognize ANY! DVD and makes unhealthy noises :-/
Also the discs have a strong resistance when pushing them in. Think there's something wrong with the mechanism.
Luckily I bought myself an other notebook a few days ago which should arrive next week.
If Fujitsu can't fix it this time this will be my last Fujitsu Notebook ever >_<
whay I managed to install Windows7 via an external DVD Drive my brother bought some time ago.
And now the Graphicbooster actually IS working again. It seems like it has been a software problem after all O.o
Hopefully it keeps working.
What is the least Catalyst version you guys mnanaged to install while maintaining the ability to boost the internal screen?
Tried to combine the newest 10.12 driver with the Catalyst Control Center of fujitsu's "internal-display-boosting"-Driver. Since then CCC is lacking most of the options, but the xgp option worked. At least till I rebooted, then it was gone.
I guess the missing options are due to the different arrangement of the CCC files in the new version :-/

I got something for you folks you could try for me.
I merged 10.12 for internal boosting.
You might try if it works for you.
Please READ and FOLLOW the instructions included in the download.
It's for 64bit only and the driver is still displayed as the old even though it should be the new: DL (INCLUDING INSTRUCTIONS)
The installation needs a little bit more then just running the installer, so please read those instructions
Basically I wrote the instructions the way I got the driver to work. Could also work with a different procedure. Just give it a try...
Anyone got it working?
Noticed some stability issues with the merged drivers. Had 3 or 4 bluescreens until now. None while gaming though :P
Think I'm going to get the normal drivers since I don't really need internal boosting.
