is the samsung 1.5tb an external hard drive? if it is then make sure all your usb ports are working by pluging your external drive to the various ports. if it still does not connect then try updating the drivers using a driver pack solution. if that does not solve it then take your laptop to sservice center to fix it.
You need a repair/reset CD, and you may need an USB external drive to read it if yours doesn't work or isn't available. The CD may be obtained by Samsung tech support. For Windows XP and Vista you just select OS installation and hit 'R' for repair.
Alternatively you can note down the name of the missing file, locate and save it on a USB key from a computer with the same OS version, and boot the PC using Universal Boot CD (UBCD). Then just copy the file where it should be. Unless you're short a specific driver or VXD, most other files are drop-in compatible.
In cases such as this, your only option is to re-install Windows from scratch with the device drivers and programs.
If you have data on the hard drive that you want to keep, then remove the hard drive and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see it as an external hard drive, then backup and copy your data files.
Return the hard drive back into the Samsung and re-install Windows.
I have had the same problem with laptops and USB drives. The external drive simply is not getting enough power.
The two solutions that seem to work are:
1) External power adapter for the USB Drive. Many external USB drives have a micro power plug next to or near the USB plug. A 5 Volt adapter (which plugs into the wall OR one that plugs into your cigarette lighter plug in a car) will cure this problem.
2) Some external USB drives come with a plug which has (2) USB plugs which plug into your laptop (laptops typically limit the power for each USB port) and one plug on the other end for your USB drive.
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.
Hard Drive requires lots of power to load. If you have purchased only the IDE cable to connect it to USB port, USB port will be unable to initialize the Hard Drive. To make it work,you require an external casing for IDE Hard Drives with external power support. Like this one -- http://shopping.rediff.com/shop/productdisplay.jsp?3.5Inch-USB-2.0-EXTERNAL-Casing-For-SATA-/-IDE-Hard-Drives&prrfnbr=10209520&source=browse&frompg=Hard%20Disk%20Drives
If you already have this casing with external power support, please let me know.
