Hi guys (and gals),
I need some serious help!
I have Samsung R519 with Windows & Home Premium.
After a 'minor' bump it stopped working. It allowed me to boot in to safe and told me recent software / hardware may be cause. I had updated iTunes a couple of days prior.
I tried Repair Centre diagnostics. Nothing found.
I tried to run Samsung Recovery Solution.
I have tried Basic & Complete restore - no joy.
I then got 'No Operating System Found'. I shut down and used a separate laptop to search for info. When I booted mine back up,it brought up 'BOOTMGR is Missing'. I have created a Recovery disc following guides on here (I don't have OEM).
When starting up again I get Boot From AHCI CD-ROM:
1. NO EMULATION System Type- 00
Then the press any key to boot ... message.
Loads from disk. No Operating System shown in System Recovery Options.
Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically = Bad Hard Disk
I tried to run Samsung Recovery Solution again.
I tried Complete restore - no joy.
On BIOS I have made the primary boot device my DVD/CD drive instead of the normal HD.
I checked SATA Port 1 (as advised by Samsung),it does not show 'none', it shows a drive?
On command prompt, chkdsk:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Volume Label is Boot.
Warning! F parameter not specificied.
Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.
Completes stage 3 of 3...
..Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log status 50.
chkdsk /f /r C:
Completes stage 5 of 5...
...Windows has checked the file system and found no problems.
Ok, so short of buying a new hard drive and re-installing windows 7 (presuming I can get OEM disc), can anybody help?
If I missed anything, ask me and I'll try me best.
