Samsung Laptop - Acting weird suddenly - Page 2

Amazing idea, thanks. I'll try that out. Seems it might be totally fried, I'm hoping I can narrow it down before buying a new motherboard frown.gif

I doubt it's the iso or usb, have used them on other machines but it's worth a shot.

Update: I haven't tried linux bootable yet, keep forgetting the usb at work. I could remake it at home but happened to chance upon something.

I wanted to grab some files off my laptop real quick so I grabbed the 2x 500gb drives, plugged them into my PC.

What do you know, suddenly PC has exact same symptoms so I disconnected one of the two to see if it was the problem.

Keep in mind, I went to boot menu and made certain it wasn't trying to boot windows off either drive, with that first drive connected I cannot boot windows off my Corsair SSD. Essentially, the identical issues my laptop had happens on my PC. The minute I disconnect that HDD it boots up, other one is connected still.

The funniest part, the OS drive is the one that works. The data drive is the one that doesn't, and yet this storage drive has caused my laptop and PC to have identical issues.

I've never had an issue like this before where a specific HDD starts causing issues with windows booting on an entirely different drive.

Thanks for your help, I guess I'll need to replace the drive frown.gif Data doesn't seem attainable either, heck I can't even boot windows with it plugged in.

Ahh yes, a failed hard drive can cause these issues. Windows has a bad habit of getting stuck when the storage controller doesn't respond. Linux on the other hand will time out and should work and maybe even let you access some files.

I still have the drive, maybe I'll bring that linux USB key home now that I've fixed the laptop, boot into linux with it connected and see what I can do.

I would like to recover some things, but it isn't the end of the world. To go from thinking a $1000 laptop needs a $400 mobo (online its a ripoff) to just needing to replace a drive, feels good.

Also if it weren't for that, I probably never would've known how much my CPU was overheating. (96c during memtest86? LOL)

Now even under full load it doesn't break 80c, which for my laptop is actually a good thing (it always ran hot, I just hadn't checked the temps in over a year)

This laptop is put together nicely in terms of the casing, but the actual hardware isn't exactly put together in the most intelligent way, seems quite flimsy.

Not sure if it's just Samsung, or if it's all laptops, first one I've ever opened up to fix. Anyways all is well now!
