I suspect you have a failed update program or a virus ,

possible solution.

check samsung site to see if they have any such firmware update program that launches automaticaly , if so attempt to find removal proceedures.

removal proceedure if you can find no other help
1. check the add/remove to see if the update program is listed there and uninstall it.
2. if that fails or you don't see it , start suspecting a virus
3. have your computer scanned for viruses and spyware.
4. if that fails start looking through the registry to remove all instances of said program/spyware

if all else fails use a program called killbox to kill it.

show that computer who's boss !

shalom :-)

If windows vista has failed on a samsung laptop is it still possible to retrieve files from the hard drive, if so how is this done?

Yes of course.
However the procedure is somewhat advanced and is better be done by an expert professional.
Also please note that if your laptop is under quarantee then trying the following steps can void your warranty.

However, you can try the following:
First of all you will need an external hard drive casing.
Turn your laptop upside down and unplug it from the power and remove the battery.
Then unscrew the screws where the harddrive is.
See this link for an image of where the harddrive might be and look like
After you unscrew the small screws remove the plastic cover and you will see the hard disk. Genthly remove it and place it in the external hard disk casing for 2.5" drives.
Then you can plug in the casing via usb cable in another computer and transfer your data.
