I was browsing on the internet yesterday looking for a spare part for my car, when the entire PC crashed. Nothing i did would work, ctrl,Alt,del etc. So i turned it off and rebooted it.

Upon startup Windows didnt load, instead Samsung recovery did, it set about trying to find the problem but to no avail, it was just on the same screen for ages. Once i managed to get out of it i tried to load windows but it just wouldnt. It got to the " loading windows" screen and did nothing.

So i tried to restore it, except this didnt work. During the full system restore it gets to 1443/10660mb then just totally stops and stays there.


Help[:(]

Anyone have any useful input? Seeing as it is totally knackered and won't even get to the windows loading screen now.

the message " BootMGR is missing, press CTRL+ALT+Del to restart" now appears

not a great pc technician mate but have you tried booting from a windows cd and wiping the lot? might lose some stuff but should be up and running, failing that get a cheap small laptop hdd and install that in your laptop then transfer any files you have from the other one so you dont lose it all

Have you tried booting from the disk instead of the hard drive, this might get you in again.

I don't have a disc of any kind.

What kind of disc? a Windows 7 disc?

How long have you had the Laptop Crowder as I was about to purchase
a Samsung R580 from Amazon.
What model is yours. [?] [:H]

You have me pondering now if my choice would be a good buy
or whether you have just been unfortunate.

I would imagine you would be protected by the guarantee.

Good luck anyway, Thanks. [:T]
