Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Samsung A10 laptop with a wiped hard disk and no copies of software. If I buy Windows XP/Vista will I be able to load it or will it fail to load because there are drivers missing etc? What would I need to rebuild and where can i get it?
I assume you have an optical (CD or DVD) drive that is functional on that unit. Yes you can run a fresh install from the disc. Be sure to get the full version and not the upgrade. If your optical drive will not read DVD's you need to watch very carefully the format that the operating system comes on. I believe Vista is on DVD so make sure your drive will read it. As far as drivers go the OEM operating system will load enough drivers to make the PC operate. You may however need to go to Samsung's website and download specific drivers to make everything work to it's full potential. There are other sources for drivers as well but the factory drivers will be my overwhelming choice especially if you choose Vista.

Windows XP and Vista should have most of the drivers for the operating system to load. If any are missing after that and your internet connection is ethernet, then you should be able to get the rest of the drivers free from the samsung home site to make your laptop run properly.
