Question about Computers & Internet
I have a samsung np300e7a-a04uk totally black screen flashing dash top left corner. Ive tried total system restore but it wont reboot and when I turn it back on just shows press f2 or f4 then goes black again,,help please
If its only 3 mnths old should still be under WARRANTY take it back During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually delete or the F2 key this will differ depending on which bios you have Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart hope it helps
if its not under warranty
Turn Off the computer now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding Alt key & keep on tapping F10 key ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer) or

SOURCE: wont load windows got a
Most likely a hard drive issue. Might have a corrupt boot sector, might be a failing hard drive. Remove HDD and see if you can boot to a windows CD, if you can then the issue is with the drive.

Well I have the same problem, I think it is a BIOS problem because after the acer screen it says Windows did not start succesfully. I saw start Windows normally but it has that "blink of an eye flash" as well, then it goes back and tries to boot up again. Maybe take it to a shop to get fixed.

I had the same problem after running an update to my Norton anti-virus software. When booting the laptop, press F2 to go to the setup menu. One of the options allows you to change the order that is searched when booting up. I moved the boot from hard drive to the last option, allowing it to boot from a network first (which it doesn't find), then from a portable device second (which it doesn't find), and finally from the hard drive. When I boot up, after it doesn't find the first two options, it boots from the hard drive with no problem.

The most common reason is memory. Try reseating (remove and reinsert) the memory, first.
Power off the computer and disconnect all cables. Flip the laptop to the back. Remove the battery. The memory cover has 8 screws. Remove the memory modules at a 25 degree angle and reinsert them by pushing them down firmly by the ends.
If reseating the memory doesn't solve your problem, one module may be bad. So, remove and test each module one at a time.
Hope this helps.
