Please check the power cords if it is fitted well. also, if the problem is your battery pack, try to remove the battery and plug your laptop to the AC power.

    Since your battery still have 20% charge, it seems that the power adapter (charger) is defective. To isolate the problem, remove the battery and plug in the adapter and power on your laptop. If it powers on without the battery, then the battery could be the problem. If the laptop don't power up on adapter alone (without the battery), then the adapter is defective. YES, your laptop could open without the battery on it, just the adapter connected to the wall outlet.

    your laptop is a deadset. so the problem is hardware not software. the hardware part that involves or is related to power. so it should be the battery, the adapter cords, or the motherboard. you can troubleshoot the first 2 items but thenician later should be a replacement from a qualified service tech

Samsung r40 reset to factory settings

hello there Start by pressing F4 when the BIOS "Samsung" screen is showing. This will allow you to restore the original operating system from the recovery partition, if is there. (Also try the other Fn keys - F6 and F8 may do something).

Otherwise you will need to beg, borrow or buy an XP Home installation CD and use that for a new installation. You can use the Samsung key on the bottom to activate it. You can get the R40 drivers from SamsungPC.

Hi i have a Samsung np-r40 and it dosnt charge or get any lights working, it works fine with a full battery so comp is fine but cant get it to charge or come on useing the mains ive brought a newcharger...

Something, a component, in the laptop may have fried the charger. I don't know for sure. You would have to trace the circuit with a multimeter to locate the bad power component.

Samsung r40 shuts down after running for about 20 mins, was told cooling fan was not working so stripped down laptop cleaned fan (was full of dust) reasemmbled and ran all day yesterday, switched on this...

The CPU fan may be faulty and not spinning freely.
If you had removed the heatsink off the CPU did you place new thermal grease/paste on the CPU before installing the heatsink back on the CPU?

Blank Screen

ccfl ( cold cathode flouroscent lamp ) is the backlit feature of the lcd panel. If you see a blank screen but do see the output on the external monitor then you sure have to take it to the hardware tech to get the inbuilt LCD panel checked. it seems to be a electronic failure. Thanks Ashish.
