Re: power fault samsung p28

Hello Robert C,

Man theirs a lot that can cause this issue,
First Remove the battery and try powering it with just the Power cable, if this works great you need a new/used battery.
Dose it make any "beeps"? Next try to Re-Seat the memory, and remove and Drives that you can. If none of these work it sounds like a bad motherboard.

Hi. My Elonex 37" tv has a black flicking picture. I watched a video on youtube about the same problem on a samsung tv, and the guy simply snipped one of the jumpers on the motherboard and it worked p

Every manufacturer designs the circuit boards in a different way. Unless you have the same make and model as the one in the video, that trick would probably not work.

Can I use my wired Samsung NC 10 netbook wirelessly in places such as library, hotspots etc? I currently use a wired router at home and wondered if I can tap into local networks wirelessly and uses...


thank you for your query

As long as your laptp has wi fi functionality then you can use it in local hotspots, the only 2 things you will need to do are

1) Switch ti on (normally a switch on the front of the laptop)
2) Once switched on you will get a message on your screen advising wireless connections found, simply choose the one you want to connect and click ok

Samsung p28 not srarting up

If the battery is old, it will not charge enough to power up the unit. Take it to a computer shop and have them test it for you.

Samsung P28 freezes or blue screens on startup


This laptop is kind of old to put much money into it. I'll have to assume that you're diagnosing an overheating problem - screen lock up. BSD's or blue screen of death is caused by drivers. Before going to all the trouble of diagnosing hardware do a Windows repair. This is part of the original CD. If this doesn't work then do an operating reinstall. This should clear up all possibility of a BSD. Now to the hardware. If your fan has failed then I suspect the CPU and/or the video chip. You can check solder connections around the power supply connector. Good luck

Hi I just got an acer aspire 4330 reconditions from Tigerdirect two days ago. It was working fine but tonight I brought it to a restaurant to show my friend some stuff on the internet. We tried to use her...

If You Have A Restore Partition On The Laptop, You Can Use An F Key To Take You To Your Restore Partition... the key is usually F10, but on some laptops it differs... Try Other F Keys if F10 does not work... Its Not The Boot Menu Settings Screen and Its Not THe Bios Setup Utility Screen, Its A Separate Route To A Hidden Partition...
You Might Need An Operating System CDRom if You Cannot access the restore partition, Run CHKDSK from the repair utility , and possibly FIXBOOT/FIXMBR to repair your Boot Config Files.

Wireless not working

First thing to do - check wireless is turned on. It sounds basic, but sometimes the switch can get knocked, meaning that the laptop won't recieve any wireless signal. If this doesn't work, play around with the settings for a while - if you're running Windows you can go to 'network connection' in Control Panel and right-click on your wireless connection; go to 'repair' and the repair wizard will go through it to try and fix it. Make sure both the wireless switch on your laptop is turned on, and that your modem is turned on too.
If this doesn't work, go to your modem's setup page (usually a web page - the address will be in the manual) and choose a different wireless channel - 0, 6 and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels. You may want to adjust your wireless signal power to make sure you have enough signal. You might also want to run a diagnostic on your modem to see if it is running properly. Some modems will display on the setup page which computers are active. See if yours comes up.
If this still doesn't work, you may want to go to an internet cafe or other wireless hotspot to check whether it is your modem which is at fault. If you get a signal and can connect, then it may well be the modem at fault. Check at some other locations just to be sure. If not, it sounds like the wireless card has a problem. If it is an internal wireless card, you might want to take it back to the manufacturer for repair. If it is an external wireless adapter, you may just want to replace the card or adapter to see if this helps.
Hope you work it out, and that you get your wireless connection back soon!

Wireless Internet Access

Hi, Normally there should be an Icon at the system tray (lower right) which is for the WiFi. Placing your mouse over the icons would tell you what the icon is for. Right clicking on the WiFi icon would show you whether it is enable or disabled. Double clicking on it would give you the WiFi access window where you can select which WiFi network you can connect to. Some of these wireless internet cafe would grant free access while others would need you to check-in with their admin or somebody and on certain cafes for a fee. Hope this be of some help to you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
