Sounds like the hard drive may have been damaged and is no longer reading correctly, or there may still be some moisture in the system... if possible, remove the hard drive and blow a hair drier into the space, then try re-fitting hard drive...

If it still doesn't work, you could try re-installing the operating system... if that all doesn't work, you may need to take it to a specialist, as the mainboard may be damaged

Did you restore from a set of CD-ROM disks?

One of the disks should have the device-drivers for the Samung-specific software.

Or, access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com and choose "custom" scan.
Then, after the scan, choose "optional hardware updates", to see if Windows Update
will offer device-drivers for the hardware.

It sounds to me you have BIOS password problem. When powering the computer up, Widows I'm guesing,.It probably very quickly has an option to F@ and F12. Press F8 to put the computer to safe mode. From there run a regerestry fix.

I hope that works for you. P.S. That is free too!!!!!

Got tea on my laptop


As i understand, the system seems to be working fine after the spillage ... there shouldnt be any issues other than the keyboard being sticky .
If the tea had seeped in then it could have fried the Motherboard. However , you could reach HP for support incase of any issues , if you tell them that the tea was spilled on the system then they might not cover the issue under warranty.

I spilled tea on my packard bell easynote


Two things to check.
Open the laptop up and re-connect the keyboard connection. It has a locking mechanism so be sure to unlock that first. Also when you're doing that you can see if there's any water (tea) still in there to dry off.
If that doesn't work, then plug in an external keyboard mate, cause the only other way to fix this is to replace the keyboard, the parts to open up the laptop keyboard itself are intricate and it's much too compicated, plus I've never done that (Seeing as that it's all glued together).
Hope this helps, be sure to rate!

You could try removing the keys out of the keyboard and cleaning it with a damp cloth and a can of compressed air. If the tea hit the circuitry of the board though you may have to get a new one.

Laptop receiving message: No operating system found


That error usually indicates one of two things, your file system is corrupt and the master boot record or partition tables have corrupted.... or, in light of a liquid being spilled, some possibly got into the laptop.

I'm not sure right off the top of my head, but I think the hard drive has an access door on the bottom. Which you can remove a couple screws to remove the cover. I would visually inspect under that cover, and other covers if any while your at it, to check for any signs that liquid got in it.
