Netbook turns on blue screen appears but doesn't give enough time to read what it says and then restarts continuously


Hi there!
You can follow this simple steps so that you can determine the exact blue screen error that you are getting.
Start the computer and keep pressing the F8 key. It will lead you to Windows Advanced Option Menu (see picture):

highlight Disable automatic restart on system failure and press the enter key. It will restart the computer and will stop on the blue screen error instead of restarting your computer.
Hope this helps.

Blue screen on start up :( samsung netbook nc10


Performing a System Restore will solve your issue. And you need not worry about losing data. System Restore will not remove or modify any of your data except the recently installed programs and the exe files. This is to help remove virus or a problem that occured after installing a new software or driver.

Press F8 continuously while starting the computer. When black screen appears eventually (right before Windows loads), choose Last Known Good Configuration.

STOP: c0000221 {bad image checksum}


You most likely have bad RAM. If you have two chips, pull one out and run the laptop on a single stick. You may need to alternate the sticks just incase the non-working one is the one you left in the laptop.

Laptop switches off without warning


Take a look at the event viewer (Start -> Run -> type "eventvwr" and hit OK) and see if there are any STOP errors right before or right after the reboot time. The machine is probably set to automatically restart after a blue screen STOP error (aka "Blue Screen of Death", or BSOD), but that's making it reboot too quickly for you to see the actual error. Post a new problem with the STOP error code and we can help you out further!
