Question about Samsung R530 Notebook
I get boot noises and cannot boot messages. Someone told me the reader arm may be going. I did a Samsung recovery backup. message said I had a bad sector. The laptop did not come with a OS disc. If I replace the hard drive how do I add the OS?
Remove the HDD and test, replace if necessary. You can contact Samsung, with your laptop Serial Number, and purchase a Factory Recovery DVD. Or, you can buy a Windows Installation DVD and do a Fresh install on the new HDD.

See if you can download it from Microsoft. It seems to be related to the languge translators in Windows (NLS file).

Unscrew the screws that hold the hard drive, unplug the device, clean the header with some medicinal alcohol. Also clean the motherboard header(where the HDD is connected) in the same manner. Leave it for a couple of minutes to dry, then plug it again.
If it is not working try to test with a different hard drive. If it is working than your hard drive is broken.
If you need further assistance, or have further questions, just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa. Cheers

That is most likely the BIOS password, the best solution would be to ask your brother for the password so that you can boot to Windows and use it.

You may have a hardware error - hard disk may be going bad.
Run your computer's diagnostics by pressing continually pressing F12 (it's possible for your system that another function key loads the diagnostics) upon boot and choose diagnostics. Let it run but pay particular attention to the hard drive diagnostic. If you get an error, your hard drive is probably going bad and would need to be replaced.
If not a hardware error, it's possible that there is a system file problem. Boot your system again, but this time press F8 to access System Restore. Choose a date when your system worked OK and follow the process.
Hope this helps.

First disconnect any external devices connected to the computer except the mouse and keyboard.
This error usually happens if the hard drive is not getting detected by the operating system or due to bad hard drive.
First check if all the physical connections to the computer are set correctly.
If it is a laptop remove the laptop battery, wait for 5 minutes and then connect back the battery, check if it works.
If the above step does not work then you will need to run CHKDSK tool to check if there are any bad sectors on the hard drive would suggest running chkdsk which would scan for any bad sectors on the hard drive and if those errors are repairable if would repair and if it cannot at the end of the chkdsk scan you would see a message "found one or more unrecoverable error on the hard drive" which means the hard drive is damaged.
If you have a Windows Vista installation disc, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc. If you do not restart your computer from the disc, the option to repair your computer will not appear.
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer.
Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button , and then click Restart.
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
Note: If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You may need to change your computer's BIOS settings. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
7. On the System Recovery Options menu, click command prompt and in the command prompt typechkdsk /f and wait till the scan is completed and later restart the computer and check what happens.
Important: While performing chkdsk on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive when chkdsk tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be lost.
Hope this helps!
