Re: samsung p28 laptop will not boot up

If you have one of the following Motherboards
OSCAR BA92-03113A or OSCAR BA92-03114A
then forget ist. No way to fix it because the whole
production series has a severe layer problem near
the CPU.

Looks like the boot manager file could be damaged or a driver is missing. Use your windows disk to boot from and choose the repair option.

The boot configuration data for my pc is missing or contains errors

Unless you took the time to create your own boot/recovery media (CDs) when you first got the computer, your only option would be to get on another computer and check for the availability of them on the vendor's website. (A real pain due to the many different models and configurations)

Have you tried a boot-up in *Safe Mode*? This will only be possible if offered as a failed, boot-up option screen, though. Sometime, if the boot files that are missing or have error are not too damaged they can be rebuilt when booting up in Safe Mode.

It might be possible to boot up into the BIOS - power it on and then repeatedly type the correct function key. (Check your manual for the right one.) Some BIOS configurations have an option to run Checkdisk - a DOS program which can sometimes rebuild boot files.

Booting suddenly shutdown when entrying windows

If we are talking about Windows 7 or Windows 8, the next time you boot your laptop, it will display an option to fix the booting problem. Please make sure that you plug in the ac adapter, and the battery is charged around 10% (please charge it for 1 hour).

Starting problem

Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

My laptop is at a black screen that says windows boot manager......under that heading it says that windows failed to start due to a hardware or software do i fix this?

does it offer you the option of pressing F1 to continue?

try that if you can, if its not there, it means the Windows Master Boot Record is broken and needs to be rebuilt.
Windows itself is likely to be ok.
If you have a Windows disk (if you are running Vista, the vista cd, and likewise with Xp, using the XP CD) - start the computer with the CD in the drive, and press any key to boot from CD when offered.
If it doesnt offer this, you need to change your boot order in the BIOS.
the BIOS is the screen right before the screen where you are getting that error.
it is the screen that counts up the RAM, around the Time the PC beeps jsut after turning it on.
there should be a prompt on that screen to get into Setup or BIOS by pressing a key. on Dell machines, it is F12, on IBM is often F2, and on my PC (an ASUS) it is DEL key you press to get into the BIOS.

once in there, you need to find the boot order sequence entry.
ensure the order has CD Rom before the primary hard disk.

save that and boot the PC, hopefully the CD will boot this time . when the CD starts up, you get an option to repair Windows, Install Windows, or enter the Recovery Console.

Press the key (i think it is ' R ') to Select Recovery Console.

once it loads up the DOS screen and is waiting for your input, just ype


this does assume your Windows installation is sitting on your c:\ partition. refer to the following site if your windows install is NOT on c:\

Press Y to confirm and reboot the PC.

it should now load your copy of Windows.

Microsoft site has an article on the Recovery Console, so please refer to this for more information.

I would just run a full reinstall if I were you but try this first:

Boot and insert Vista install or recovery DVD (any Vista disc will do for this)

Reboot and hopefully it will offer the option to boot from the DVD. Take this option and follow it through until you are offered the option to install Vista or repair your computer. Just follow things though from there and it MAY repair the problem.

If it does not offer you the initial boot option then look on the initial boot screen for the boot options key - probably F11 or F12 - and press that during initial boot to obtain the boot options screen

After that its a full reinstall by the sounds of it - save your data to a stick or DVD first though
