Re: PC Will not boot
This flashing will indicate the problem to somebody who knows the flash code, the only people will probably be samsung, manufacturers are reluctant to publish these sort of things; for their own reasons.
My guess is a processor or motherboard fault, but these replacements can become more expensive than a replacement notebook in some cases.
It will probably be worth your while getting in touch with their support team

look at the bottom of the laptop where you install the battery, there's should be what looks like metal contacts where the battery connects to the actual computer. make sure that when you installed the battery you didn't accidentally bend 2 of them so they were touching eachother. you may have created a direct short which is what caused your heat and the smell. try to plug the battery back in and be careful that you don't bend the metal contacts.
I just fixed a D610 belonging to a customer. Before when i press the power button the caps-lock led flasshes 10X then goes off again. I opened the memory compartment beneath the laptop and replaced the memory and this time the power came on but the screen has lines and the writings can't be seen so i opened the keyboard and there is another memory there too so i removed it and this time the pc came on well and booted. So this problem is from the memory. Anyone having a 10X-CAPS-lock flash should check and replace both memories.
If the led on the power supply turns off after connecting it to your laptop, the problem most likely lies with the power supply especially if the machine will run on battery power. This can be tested by
1. Turn the laptop off.
2. Remove the battery and power supply plug.
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to reset the laptop.
4. Replace the power supply plug into the laptop without replacing the battery.
5. If the computer will not start and there are no lights turning on on the laptop the power supply is bad.
6. Replace the battery and attempt to start the machine both with and without the power supply plugged in.
1. Turn off computer and unplug power cord.
2. Disconnect all external devices(open up the computer tower and then )
3. remove battery
4. press power button and hold for 10-15 seconds
5. plug power cord back into computer and press power button.
6. Check LED’s and listen for power supply fan.
7. If LED’s are on or power supply fan starts spinning, watch for boot screen
8. If coputer begins to turn on, turn it off.
9. Reconnect battery and external devices.
10. Press power button and make sure computer starts.
This type of problem generally occurs when adoptor stops working and battery goes down. Show first of all check your power adoptor, its working or not, to check-out remove battery and use power adoptor then try to boot. If there is power led on means adoptor is ok otherwise try to reconnect and also check whether the power supply is ok for adoptor. For canfirmation use another adoptor.
If above not working then you can try to these steps:
1. Remove Power connection (Adoptor connection to Laptop).
2. Remove battery.
3. Re-Connect power to laptop.
4. Make switch on.
If above does not work then after step 2 try the followings
A. Press and hold power button for abt 20-30 secs. keep holding on and insert Power connection now if power led get on leave the button. After that it should on.
If all above didn't solve your problem, then its time to take tour of service centre.
