Samsung r40 not loading xp

\015 My daughters laptop is suddenly not loading windows XP. The XP logo comes up, with the green travelling bars, then the screen goes blank and it just sits there. The HDD light is working, suggesting the machine is doing(or trying to do something). I have enabled all the black and white shpiel at switch on and it says HDD not detected.HOWEVER it will start in safe mode, and all files are present.Any ideas?Driver problem?ThanksTim\015

Answers :

If the computer boots in to safe mode fine, you more than likely have a virus or spyware interfering with the boot process.

Windows also could have corruption on it.
Insert your windows XP CD and boot the computer, you may need to set your boot order in BIOS so tht CD is first.

Once the CD loads Run the recovery console Select 1 for the C: drive if it asks for a password this is generally blank or will be the password on the "Administrator" account you see when you boot to windows in safemode

Once in the recovery console do a chkdsk /f command
This is will check for errors on the disk and can fix a lot of boot issues
I would also suggest typing the command mbrfix to replace the master boot record.

If it still will not boot you may need to reinstall windows xp

DISSAMBLING SAMSUNG R40 Hello there, SAMSUNG R40 I got the same problem. I don't know how to dissamble my SAMSUNG R40, and the cooler seems to be clogged with dust, so I'm afraid I'll fry my laptop. I've been able to get the keyboard off, and I've removed every single screw I could find, but no luck... I can bend the case apart slightly in some places, but other places are still held firmly together, particularly near the display hinges and near the audio connectors at the front. I suspect there

Invalid media My new computer loads only to C:Windows/system/mup and freezes. Further checking reveals the message Invalid media reading C: I figured out that the partition table must be fouled.
