Question about Samsung RV510-A02 T3500 2.10G 320GBDVDRW 15.6IN W7HP - NP-RV510-A02US Hard Drive

3 Answers

Hi, I just recently purchased a Samsung notebook (RV510-A02). My system was running great until it did an automatic windows update. Not sure is that caused my problem though. My problem is the following: Sometimes when I turn the machine on, the bios screen appears and it gets stuck there and doesn't move on to starting windows. I then have to turn the machine off again and then on, and only then does the machine startup properly. This issue doesn't happen every-time, but at least half of the time that I start up the machine.Please help. Thanks a lot. Regards Paul

I hate to tell you this, but one of two things is more than likely happening.....Either you have a corrupted windows partition or your Hard Drive is on the fritz
1. **windows partition corrupted A. Boot to recovery and try a full system recovery to before the problem began B. You can try a "clean" install of windows (will erase all saved data but you can back up important documents*****this method will require installing ALL windows updates and software from scratch)
2. Bad Hard Drive A: GO to "start menu" > "run" > type "cmd" > type "chkdsk" (let the process run and it will prompt you will any defects in the HDD B. Replace the drive if necessary

Not sure which update you did, and some can't be reversed, but you can try a system restore. Pull up the security tab and look to the left for a system restore option. Start system restore and choose a restore point from a date when your computer was working fine.

If you recently bought this laptop it should be under warranty you could take it back to be fixed or
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps

Download cd rom driver for samsung rv510 laptop

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Samsung download laPTOP MANUALS

For updates for your samsung laptop, you can go to:

However, it might take time for you to get it done because you need to manually do it. There is actually one software that works the trick in updating your computer's software.

It is called Radar Sync . It is actually a software that you need to download in your computer. Once it's installed, it automatically searches for outdated drivers in your computer, it searches for the available updates and it updates them. Sounds automatic right? You don't need to find any new updates or to stumble from one website to the other because the software does all those things.

I recommend you the software because I understand that you are looking for the right updates for your samsung system.
