Re: starting up samsung x05
Sounds as if you have a motherboard problem. If you are not comfortable in taking the bottom half of the case to see if that "crackaling noise" was.. then you can send it into samsung for repairs and estimate. If you are comfortable, first put your nose near a heat vent and see if it smells funny, like a little bit burnt. if so, its a gonner. You can look around once you remove the bottom pannals for burn residue or any signs of problems and report back if you need further assistance

You are looking at a real job here. The socket is soldered to the motherboard. You will have to completely disassemble the laptop and de-solder the DC socket and re-solder it. Not a job for the faint of heart, not to mention someone without real soldering skill. I can't tell you the actual steps, but you'll have to unscrew the screws in the bottom of the case, remove the bezel that covers the display hinges, remove the keyboard, display, the palm rest, and then remove the motherboard. FYI, the palm rest is held to the base by little plastic catches--so you have to be really careful when using a screwdriver to separate the two plastic pieces.
plug in power cable and press power button ...wait a minute or so to see if theres anything...if nothing press and hold power button for 5 or 6 seconds you should hear some response..now press power as normal to boot ..if this dont do it remove power lead remove battery...insert power lead and try to boot ...if successful when booted up and windows running replace battery and restart(reboot)
I dont think its a bios prob but if all fails remove rtc battery for a minute or so then replace to reset bios and then boot.
Go to Avaira.com and download there repair tool,put it on a disk or a flash drive and run it in dos,thats before windows starts.
The tool will search for virus,rootkits,trojans.
Avira is the # 2 top anti-virus there is on planet, there tool is a free download. If this is a virus, avaira will kill it, this will do nothing if there are bad sectors on the hard drive and it won't boot.
