I have a Samsung V20 for many years and I know it doesn't support a wireless connection built in. But if you connect a USB like myself you can have access to the internet wirelessly. The flikering on the screen are you sure you haven't got a screen saver switched on, you may have it set to a clear black screen and like you say have to tap the keyboard and it comes back to life. It may also have hibernation switched on which will automatically turn off the screen have so many minutes you can change all these setting by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties and under the screen saver tab there will be a power btton you should see hibernation and other tabs across the top these can be altered to whatever you want.

Hope this of use.

After adding ddr3 to my samsung rv511 its not starting


Hi!

I just got my Samsung RV511 laptop up and running with OS X 10.6.8.

The specs of my laptop:
Intel HM55 Sandy Bridge
Intel Core i3 2.53 GHz
4 GB DDR3
Nvidia Geforce 315M 512MB

Currently I've got ethernet, QE/CI, Bluetooth, Integrated Webcam, Trackpad with 2 finger scrolling, keyboard, Sound and HDMI with Audio working.

For people who want to try it, this is how i installed it.

  • Change the ACHI settings in bios to "Manual" and "Enabled", as having it on auto won't work.
  • Install OSX using iBoot
  • Update to 10.6.8 using the Combo Update
  • Install MultiBeast, List of drivers to select below

Multi Beast:
EasyBeast Install
System Utilities
Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Audio -> Universal -> VoodooHDA 0.2.1 (Newer version WON'T work)
Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Miscellaneous -> VoodooPS/2 Controller
Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Miscellaneous -> VoodooPS/2 Trackpad
Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Network -> Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Ether...

Some issues when i installed, with the fix:
After entering sleepmode, system won't boot "Still waiting for root device"
After i've entered sleep mode and forced shutdown the computer, the BIOS settings are reverted to ACHI auto. Change it back to Manual and Auto. The sleepfile is still laying somewhere not making it to boot, use the boot flag Wake=n to get it back running.

Can't boot using iBoot after the first boot.
Boot using the parameters -x -v and it should boot up fine.

Things that needs to be fixed:

However, the "tapping" of the trackpad is not working, so i need to press the button to click on a link, open a program etc.
The F5 key is not working on the keyboard, but the F12 for Dashboard and the special FN keys are indeed working.

Sleep is not working at all, the screen gets black and then im stuck.

Wireless is not working either, tried adding the IO80211Family kext but when i copy it to the extensions folder, i get an error message saying that the kexts we're not installed successfully.

I have details from CPU-ID Cpu-z from Windows 7 which should tell the PCI-ID etc. Of the Wireless card, however i can't really find the maker and model of my wireless card.
It seems like they got it with 3 different types of Wireless cards. This is from the driver download section from Samsung:
Wireless LAN,BROADCOM (Driver) (ver.5.100.82.95)
Wireless LAN,ATHEROS (Driver) (ver.9.2.0.439)
Wireless LAN,INTEL (Driver) (ver.14.1.1.3)

Is there any way to figure out the make/model from the cpu-z specs?

Any help would be really appreciated!

SAMSUNG V20 SCREEN WONT RESPOND AFTER I OPEN IT TO FIX A PROBLEM WAT SHOULD I DO NEXT


I have come across this issue before. I believe it was with a dell or Gateway laptop. The screen had been stepped on. I wanted to check the computer out before I replaced the screen. I connected an external desktop monitor. It worked fine. You just have to hope that the dual monitor feature is enabled. There's no way to do it without a monitor or active screen. I hope that helps.

The Samsung V20 Notebook doesn't have screen Output after Start. One button clip of the keyboard button --> is missing. Is there a dependance between keyboard function and screen?


no, but if it got knocked hard enough to mess up the keyboard there is a good chance that something has happened to either the gpu or the screen itself as well.

Reformat my samsung v20 back to factory conditions


You pc has a hidden recovery partition. You need to press F11 at boot up to launch recovery. But before you do make sure to back up all your data. the recovery wizzard will walk you though the whole process.
