Samsung n150+ bios is corrupt , how do i flash the bios out of windows as i am unable to load windows and the samsung installer is through windows

Hi I have a Samsung n150+ and it will not load o/s. I believed it to be the hard drive so I swapped with my daughters n145+ and it was the same. I then thought possibly the sata lead, so I swapped that aswell , still the same. now I tried the memory, still the same, I started to believe the mobo at fault but on checking the bios to check the settings I noticed that some of the letters are incomplete or incorrect leading me to the presumption that the bios is corrupt,i reset the bios but this made no difference , I then removed the cmos battery and reset by earthing the pins and this did not cure either. how do I flash the bios from usb as the Samsung way of flashing is from within the o/s . I made a bootable usb stick and stuck the latest bios from Samsung but I couldn't get this to work . could you point me in the right direction on how to flash the bios to the latest version outside of windows as I believe the bios to be the problem

Your BIOS is very unlikely to be at fault.

Try booting from a USB stick, or onto a Windows/Linux installation CD/DVD.

Samsung N150 Netbook w/Windows 7 Starter. Several of the keys are not working even while in the BIOS menu. I ran the basic windows recovery option without success. I am unable to load in safe mode...


Try pressing f4 during boot at bios this should take you to the recovery partition with options to back up to removable media then restore to factory image.

Laptop says no operating system found wot do i do as its a samsung notebook


Hi,

Check if the harddrive is detected in BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) setup by pressing F2..or F12 (depends on what key is designed for the BIOS setup).

- If the harddrive is detected in the BIOS (usually shows the harddrive name or values beside "Drive 0"), your operating system is corrupted. You need an operating system disc to install it.

- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS ( no value beside "Drive 0"), either the harddrive cable is loose, the harddrive is not inserted properly or is defective. Check the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop and use screw driver to reveal it. Try to reinsert it or use a good known hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Samsung N150 ntldr is missing, how can i fix that problem


Common Causes:
  1. Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
  2. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
  3. Corrupt NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM file.
  4. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
  5. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
  6. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
  7. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.
Windows XP users
  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.
    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

I HAVE NO SOUND ON MY SAMSUNG N150 NETBOOK.


Hi.
Based on the information you have provided it seems that the issue might be due to the Audio Driver, which might be un-installed or corrupted.
However, re-installing the Audio Driver should resolve the issue.
You may download the Audio Driver from the below link:
Windows 7 32-bit:
http://www.samsung.com/ph/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP02&prd_ia_cd=05080100&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=NP-N150#
Windows XP:
http://www.samsung.com/ph/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP02&prd_ia_cd=05080100&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=NP-N150#
Please click on the above link to download the Driver.
Please restart the Computer after installing the Driver.
It is required to restart the Computer after the installation for the settings to be enabled.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

I am trying to format my laptop, i insert Bootable CD in CDrom, machine boots, loads all the drivers, while loading windows setup. machine shuts down..please help me with this problem.


There are many possibilities that would create this problem.  Can you try to install Windows on a seperate machine with the same disk? This would tell you whether the disk has been corrupted or not.  If this option is not available, I would suggest cleaning the disk well and trying again.  Again, there are many possibilities.  Your power supply may be inadequate or beginning to fail, you may have hard drive errors causing the shutdown.  The possibilities are numerous and hard to pinpoint without more information.  Check to see that your installation CD is not corrupted first.
