Question about Samsung R Computers & Internet
When i hit my power button it comes on for a few seconds then shuts back down
The most likely cause is that you have picked up a virus in an email and unless you have a clean backup of contents all is likely lost without expensive intervention at very high tech level within Microsoft and even then it may not work. Can you boot to safe mode? If so, try to run spyware to seach the disk. I'm not optimisitic that you'll be able to boot to safe mode even.
Do you have the rescue disk that came with the system? Try rebuilding the system, although you may well perpetuate the virus regardless of using the factory rebuild disk because it is extremely difficult to delete even with multiple reformats.

This could be a bad power adapter or bad power jack. If so, the battery will fail to charge. When you attempt to startup, the battery has too little charge and the system shuts down before fully booting. To check, remove your battery, plug your power adapter in and look for a panel light. Or, with battery in, look for a battery charging light. If no lights, your adapter is probably bad. Or, you could have a bad power jack.

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

does it run with the power cord plugged in? if so your batterys dead, otherwise harddrive/bios/motherboard fault? is your power supply charging the battery?

I'm sorry to say this sounds like a system board failure. On my HP DV200t, a very similiar issue occured, eventually only the led where you plug in the power cord would turn blue. I replaced the system board and all the issues went away.
Hope this helps, and I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
