Hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Then press power again- this should allow the system to boot up again

    No workey. Its just boots to the failsafe and asks for a 16 character key

    At this point, you will need to contact Samsung and get the unlock password from them- they generally have a master password that they can give to you once you prove ownership

    I would approach the company you purchased from- this would be actionable under Lemon Law.

Computer will not boot up

OK,so there is nothing wrong with the computer, is justthat the BIOS is asking for a password in order to boot up from the HDD.
If your computer is under warranty or brand new, call Samsung. This is nothing but a security method just in case somebody steals the computer.

Will not boot up I believe the boot has been locked

what you need to do is take the phone to a mobile service center and have them fully service the phone, then reflash the firmware on the phone this will fix the issues.

My Samsung WB100 turns off after switch on. Got new batteries and same problem plus 'old' batteries are still good even though camera said they needed replacing after a few days minimal use.

Make sure you are using name brand high quality batteries and not some generic from China. Camera require a great deal of power to boot up.

I have forgot password for parental control on my daughters samsung np r519 laptop how do i take the lock off please.

You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :-

My brand new samsung netbook wont boot, it just appears with a black screens saying windows cannot boot because it cant communicate with a device that was connected?

Do you have a USB drive hooked up? some systems will not boot up with the driver left in, if that is not the case, have you added anything to your computer recently when the trouble started? such as USB DVD driver or download, or was this a problem when you first bought it? if the answer is yes! the item should be returned for exchange.

Hi there, have a strange problem with a brand new DVD SAMSUNG SH-S223C. Installed a few days ago and running latest SB05 firmware (Even I reinstalled twice this firmware). Now on boot with my WIN XP PRO...

Start up BIOS and perhaps change default boot drive to your hard drive because i think your default boot up device is the dvd drive.... try to put that last on the list... F2 should get you to BIOS if not try F8 Just keep tapping right at beginning of startup before the logo screen shows. Once in BIOS go to boot menu and change default device :) Hope that works for you
