I have a Samsung rv510 it was working fine now all of a sudden I switch it on and it goes straight to Samsung recovery solution I've tried restore and back up but still I can't load up windows this is

Okay... here's the situation:'re computer is booting JUST FINE...
Samsung "recovery" has been activated for "some" reason.

Now-- I'll assume your data is backed up, and/or if you formatted (erased) your hard-drive you wouldn't lose anything... that may not be the case..if its not--- find a local data-recovery-center to back your drive up to a CD-- your data is NOT lost. are booting Windows 7... Do this, try it- and come back..

Boot the computer... when it starts up.. hit the F8 key..over and over..and over..and over.. yes.. 1000's of times.. while it's booting.

It "SHOULD" give you a screen to boot to "Last Good Known Configuration"... Select that.

See if that works..and write me back.. if not, we'll work further... What you are experiencing is an application (from SS) that for some reason things you need to "recover".. You probably don't.

Try that..and write me back.

HP Dv5t laptop wont switch on

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Start it up in Safe Mode by pressing F8 as it boots up. Normally that will repair the corrupt file. When fully loaded press start and close the laptop.

Laptop works fine in safe mode but freezes in normal mode

Okay, easiest first. In Safe Mode, your sound won't work. Safe Mode means only enough drivers to make your PC more than a doorstop get loaded, so that's okay.

Second, if it boots to Safe Mode without difficulty, try running System Restore in System Tools. Go back to some date before when your issue started. That should get you going. Don't worry, your data files will not be affected in System Restore. I hope this helps.
