I have bought a laptop while ago from Samsung that came with windows 8.
Due to software problems i decided to reinstall the windows.
When accessing the hard disk in windows installation i deleted all Partitions on HD. Inclusive those from factory.
When i try to install windows now , he''s asking for drivers and he will not continue without. I tried to download the sata hd drivers, wich he finds, but it still keeps screaming for drivers. Did i delete the wrong map? is it possible to recover this?
I was on my samsung laptop last night, and I found a folder called "Searches>Indexed locations". I saw it was taking up some space so i went through some of the files seeing that some were Type:Shortcuts. So I deleted them to free up a bit of space thinking "it's only a shortcut, can't harm it". Now some icons are missing from my windows 8 start screen and some programs have become inoperable because of missing files. I tried System restore to bring some of it back, it was going ok, then when it tried to restart, showed the samsung logo, then just blackscreened for 4+ hours. It was on , but blank. Haven't been using the laptop long so I don't really know the specs on it.
It came with no DvD/CD for me to use to format the laptop and I cant get it on to boot it up right for me to format it to begin with.
I atleast do know the graphics card was an AMD Radeon HD 7460
Can't seem to access Bios either.
One thing I forgot to mention which might have something to do with it, is I was using a custom windows 8 theme, because microsoft, being as stingy as they are, from what i assume does not enable you to have your own theme, so I had something called the "ribbon disabler and UXTheme Cracker" to use a custom windows 8 theme.
I have two laptops, both Samsung, one mine and one my sisters. My one is Windows 8 and her one is a slightly older model so Windows 7. Now both are are very similar in spec, being 4GB and Intel Pentium 2.3GHz models. She recently asked me if i could sort out her laptop with Windows 8, so I said yep should be no problem.
I went and bought a Windows 8 Pro 64bit and was at first going to just do a plain install. But then had a bright idea and thought why not do an image of mine and recover it to hers, and then when started up just enter the key of the new one. that way she gets a full original Samsung install along with all the apps and everything.
At first I tried the samsung built in Recovery software but had no luck as it was just a complete nightmare. Not booting the USB I put it on for the first few times, then eventually after changing the BIOS setting to UEFI and formatting her Disk to GPT it started but then said no image found. In end I tried the old way by using the Windows built in File Recovery Image tool which made me a repair disc and 3 discs for the image itself.
This booted first go and went all way through the recovery, and then did the usual "restarting in X seconds ..." But after it rebooted to my horror the Samsung Logo screen appears and then after that it just stays blank.
It does every few seconds momentarily flicker on the screen but then just goes bank again. I cant even get into the BIOS anymore or boot from anything.
I was having problems with my new computer (HP Envy m6, running windows 8). It was not signing me out properly and would not shut down. I thought that maybe I just needed to update the windows software. But upon updating the software and turning my computer back on it gave me a black screen with one blue box that says "Selected boot image did not authenticate. Press <Enter> to Continue. If I press Enter the computer the computer turns off (turning back on displays the same message). If left on nothing changes and it will continue to run the computer.
My windows 8 laptop will not connect to the wifi hotspot of my samsung galaxy s3. My windows 7 laptop connects just fine & the windows 8 laptop connects to my broadband router ok so it doesnt seem to be a physical problem.
I've got a Samsung NP550P5C laptop with the following specs :
-i5-3210M -6 GB RAM @ 1600 MHz -1 TB HDD @ 5400 rpm -2 GB nVidia GT650M with Optimus -Windows 8 Single Language 64-bit
It came with Recovery partitions. Now using the Samsung Recovery application I had copied my recovery files to another external HDD alongwith a backup of C drive. Now all these are in some weird extensions. I refreshed my PC and then the problems began. The problems were :
-No Fn key working -Samsung recovery did not recognize factory condition recovery point,i.e,Factory reset option was gone. -The backup on external HDD was showing up on Samsung Recovery, but after clicking on it, it would go on a restart and recovery never happens.
Totally new to W8, why I cannot simply transfer video from my W7 Samsung laptop to my W8 HP Touchscreen 11.6 netbook? Picture, docs, all okay, but with video it will transfer the sound but not the picture.
For some reason when I go into BIOS or press F10 on boot up to look at the boot options menu my Hitachi internal drive appears twice. This as only just happened after upgrading the BIOS, my machine is operating normally. How or do I need to remove one of the options.
Samsung NP365E5C-S05US laptop. I just did a hardware check and found that my USB 2.0-CRW card reader doesn't have a driver. The fix provides for a Realtek driver to be downloaded from Realtek, which I have done. The first stop is in my Downloads file and I need to know how I can install it from there.
I have a samsung laptop and 4 days ago the internet access stopped working. I normally use it via wireless and I have tried it hardwired - no luck. I have restored the internet settings. The response I get when trying to connect to google is 'waiting for google.com' and it just hangs.
I swapped out a HDD in a samsung NP355E5C-A01AU laptop which i cloned all the recovery partitions from the original to the new HDD. Its a windows 8 partition and everything seems to be there but the laptop wont boot from it at all, it just goes into bios. I did get it to try and read from the recovery partition but get a "MBR error 1" when it tries to boot from it. I used aronis disk director 11 to do the cloning if that works. Also the original HDD was a GPT partition and thats wat i have formatted the drive as. Ive done some reading and acronis can be difficult when cloning recovery partitions and it will give u this MBR error.
I recently bought a Samsung ATIV Book 8, and the screen just stopped working. HDMI out works fine. How can I fix this? I have read to remove my battery, but I cannot do that on my laptop. Should I reinstall my graphics card driver?
I've had a lot of trouble with my samsung laptop. The HDD has been replaced but I now cannot do a refresh or reset. I get the message"Some files are missing. Your Windows installation or recovery media will provide these files". The laptop came with Windows 8 installed so I do not have the installation discs. I can do a factory restore by pressing f4 on start up successfully but still shows the above message trying to refresh. What caused this and what can I do about it?
I just bought a windows 8.1 Dell laptop and I am having horrible issues with Malware. I have installed a malware removal tool that I pretty much run daily because the issue keeps coming back. I cannot turn on my firewall because it is being controlled by McAfee and I have to purchase it to turn it on, same issue exists with Windows Defender, it has been disabled which really seems ridiculous to me. Basically my browsers are being hijacked to use a different search engine and it opens extra tabs on every load which makes browsing slow.
I had a BSOD on my week old Samsung 350E7C laptop. It was a Power_Drive_State_Failure. It has since recovered but now every time I try to go on Youtube, my internet connection just stops working. No pages will load and I have to disable my Wi-Fi and re-connect. I have tried several browsers, but the same issue happens.
I have a asus k53s that i recently upgrade to Windows 8 (from w7). Sometimes when i leave the laptop on but don't use it(idle), the fan will be constantly on even if its not doing anything like running a virus scan, and the screen will also shutdown going completly black. I can't move the mouse or press keys to "wake" the computer and i have to reboot the computer by pressing the power button.
.I have everything updated with the latest drivers, so i really don't understand the reason for this.
I just totally lost the sound of my laptop running on Windows 8. It was okay yesterday and the only thing I did today was checked my email and noticed I kept getting full page of junk ads like your software is outdated, need to update whatever... etc. etc. I ran malwarebytes and avg and found nothing. I ran these also yesterday. Checked my connections ok, and volume not muted.... Where did the sound go? My laptop is only 6 months old.....
I have an Asus laptop running Windows 8.1. I have an hdmi cable connected to my tv with a wireless logitech keyboard and mouse. Is there anyway to turn the laptop without opening the lid by using the keyboard? I have searched and people suggested getting some external button which I am not looking for while others suggest hibernating the laptop which is also not an option as I use it only few times a week.
I have a problem with my fresh install of Windows 8.1. In the settings menu I have enabled the option to play a slideshow on the lockscreen and that when my PC is inactive it will show the lock screen instead of turning off the screen. For testing purposes I have set the screen turn off timer to 1 minute, but here's what happens:
After that one minute, the screen will dim slightly for a brief moment as if it wants to turn off the screen/go to the lockscreen slideshow. Then one minute later, it will do the exact thing again. Like it's being waked the second it wants to turn off the screen.
I have a laptop running Windows 8.1 and the start up has become very slow. Glary Utilities tells me it took 2m39s and only 1% of users are slower. I've tried cleaning it with CCleaner and Glary, removing unnecessary start up items and defragging.
A couple of days ago, I was on steam on my ASUS X550L Notebook when it suddenly blue screened and shut down. I waited a couple of minutes and turned it back on, and it went to the ASUS automatic repair system. After 6 hours of my laptop being stuck on the repair system, I shut it down. I waited around a minute and turned it back on and ran it through login, where it blue screened again and has not turned on since. If I go to try to turn it on, the lights in the bottom of the laptop flash for a couple of seconds, but it never turns on. I am okay with wiping the computer if I can get my files on an external hard drive, don't want to redownload them steam files.
