Laptop(Samsung R510) does not boot anymore

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It just doesn't boot. I've tried to boot normal, in save mode and in debug mode. I have tried all the options in the boot menu(F8), it just does not load windows anymore.

It has Windows Vista 32 Bit on it. It has a recovery option(by pressing F4), "Samsung Recovery Solution III", but even that does not load. A blue loading screen saying "Samsung Recovery Solution III" is showing for about an hour now.

I don't have a recovery disc for it so the only option I can see would be to install the Vista 64 Business I have.

I'm afraid there aren't all the needed drivers on the "regular" Vista I have. After I installed a "normal" XP on my mothers old laptop the internet didn't work anymore, so I had to use her Vista recovery disc to get all the needed software. I don't want that to happen on this laptop, since I dont have a recovery disc to fall back on.

Any ideas what else I may try?

Thanks a lot.

You can download or torrent a genuine OEM Vista 32bit media CD. Your laptop has the license for it, the media isn't actually worth anything.

Boot from the Vista disc and try the repair options once its loaded. If that doesn't work, then connect your Hard Drive to another machine, back up your data and re-install from scratch.

Thanks, I have to remember that for the next time. It isn't my laptop and I was told there wasn't anything important on it so I installed my Vista Business 64-Bit. All seems to work without problems now, even the internet works.
