Q: Solved: SOLVED: Samsung Gusto Picture Download

I have figured out how to download pictures from the Verizon Samsung Gusto. I saw pedroguy asked about this November 2010, but the thread died.

1) Download BitPim
2) Under "BitPim Settings", for Phone Type, choose "SCH-U750 (Alias 2)"

I don't know anything about BitPim, I just played with the settings until it worked.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


My samsung PS50C680G5K has developed a pink screen with "islands" of green, picture outlines can be seen, sound is ok.
On connecting to the mains I get the usual click and solid red light, turning on produces firstly a blue screen then seems to decay to black then quickly to pink and green, where it stays consistent. I get a perfectly normal PC Media picture via VGA input. The logic board LED Flashes it's normal green.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

This is the third laptop I use with a Sumsung LE32B450C4W monitor. The other two plug in with VGA and look superb on the monitor. I have connected this HP laptop with HDMI and the picture quality on the monitor is really poor - colours are all wrong and text is pixellated.  Do I need to install drivers onto the laptop for the monitor? I'm at a bit of a loss!  Thanks so much.

Hello all,

This Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook has been returned to us for the 4th time because the customer consistently complains that the notebook apparently shows graphic issues, even though we have tested it with every testing tool we have and these issues could not be reproduced. The specs are:

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook
Intel Core i5 2537M @ 1.40 GHz
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

The Notebook was sent back to us and was tested for almost 2 weeks and the problem could not be reproduced. The steps taken so far:

Graphic test with FurMark - 3 times for 8-10 hours
CPU test with OCCT - 3 times for 8-10 hours
RAM test with Memtest - 1 time for 7 passes
BIOS updated to the newest version
Intel burn-in test - 3 times
Daily normal use tests - 7 days
Graphic drivers - last 2 versions used and the customer says the problem still happened.

The Notebook runs completely stable when it is with us, but as soon as it returned to the customer for the second time, this problem appears its nasty little face. I have included a picture from the customer showing the graphic problems she has experienced. This problem we have not had at any time it has been with us for testing.

Maybe someone here can point me in the right direction, because we have all but expended our testing options.

*Pictures attached*

A:Sporadic graphic issues ; Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook w/Picture


I can think of two possibilities:

Could this be an unstable power (wall socket) issue? Has the owner tried to run this laptop just from the battery, and maybe a different wall socket/outlet, to see if the issue still occurs?

How is the laptop used? Is it possible it is being used on a blanket/lap where the air vents are being blocked, causing the GFX card to overheat?

I've done this before, and have searched, searched, and searched and can't find a way to do it again.
For example, I was downloading updates for Studio MX this morning. Only 2 downloads at a time would be active, and the rest would just sit there waiting. I know there is a registry tweak to fix this, but I can't find it. Google+Forum Searches=Nothing


And I know that some people who read this thread use download accelerators. I used DAP, but didn't like the ads. I used FlashGet, but didn't like the ads. Anyone else know of a good accelerator/leecher?

I have a Samsung 840 Pro 512Gb SSD.

The Samsung Magician software recommends:

"Over Provisioning (OP) helps maintain performance and lifespan.
A certain amount of disk space will be allocated for use by the SSD controller.
Note: using a raw partition may cause damage to your data."
Trying to follow the recommendation, I allocated 60 Gb for OP by shrinking its partition accordingly.
This left me with 60Gb of unallocated space.

I opened up Samsung Magician and found that the "Note: using a raw partition may cause damage to your data." warning was still there.

I interpreted the warning to mean that the 60Gb space allocated for OP, is not properly prepared and needs to be formatted; so that is what I did.

Opening up Samsung Magician again I noticed that the warning never disappeared, but is still there.

At this point I have a suspicion that this warning is not meant as an indication that my OP is not set up properly , but is meant to be a general warning to make sure your SSD primary partition is formatted and not raw.

That would of course make no sense either, because your SSD primary partition could not cause damage to your data because being unformatted, no data could ever get onto it to be damaged.

I am totally perplexed.

Maybe Samsung's instructions are deliberately designed to be ambiguous , so that people in their mid 70's cannot use their products?

Can someone explain what I am doing wrong if anything?

I bought a Samsung YP-U3 mp3 player the other day. it came with no driver what so ever and it is not recognised by my computer. when i go to control panel> Add/Remove Hardware [ it comes up on the list and when i double click it, it says its is working normally.

could someone give mem adequate information for my complication?

A:Solved: Samsung YP-U3

you need to goto Samsung's website and find there download page and enter your exact model number of the mp3 player (there are quite a few that start with YP-U3 so you will need to figure out its exact model number) and enter the number in the search box and click ok, once it brings you to the page for your model look for a tab that says software and click it then download the program samsung media studio and install it which should install the appropriate drivers for your mp3 player.

I have just bought a 2nd hand Samsung Jet. I logged into the mobile facebook page and it worked fine. I installed the phone software to my PC and proceeded to update the firmware to the latest version.

Everything updated fine and everything works, however when I now try to log into the mobile version of Facebook all I get now after I have entered my login details is a box that keeps coming up saying it is redirecting to fb something..... and no matter how many times I click okay to redirect the box keeps coming back up.

Every other site works just the facebook site. Also does anyone know the gmail IMAP settings for this phone? I really don't want to use POP3 if I can help it. I have read that samsungs have problems with IMAP.

When I find a picture in internet explorer and I save it on my desktop it says no preview available. But when I save the Picture to a folder it shows me the picture. Is this normal???

A:Solved: Picture

The problem is that you are trying to use a thumbnail in an icon only
area. This does not work. The desktop will only display Icons. It
will not display thumbnails.

If you want to change the folder icon to something else then you have
to change the icon in the customize area. Changing the thumbnail
image does nothing to the icon on the desktop. However once you
change the thumbnail image and then go to the desktop folder in
Explorer and choose to view thumbnails then you would see your custom
folder there. But you would still only see an icon on the desktop.

A couple of nights ago I tried to turn on my comp and their was sound and everything, just no picture whatsoever. It's a SLI setup and I've tried starting it up with each card by itself. I've made sure that it's plugged into the monitor well, and used two different cables. My question is, Motherboard or Video Cards?

This is certainly a new one to me. I'm trying to watch a few videos I downloaded. RealPlayer is playing the sound, but there's no picture! Could it have some to do with my settings? Or is this a new form of DRM? They are personal movies, not copyrighted stuff. So I doubt that's the problem. But you never know. Any ideas?

A:Solved: No picture

We can definately rule out the whole DRM thing. Because I just downloaded and watched the videos on my father's computer. And he has the same OS as me (Windows XP SP2). It's obviously my computer that's causing this. Incidentally, I'm also having trouble getting my AOL media player to play video. Again, it plays just fine on my father's computer. I've tried the obvious stuff (making firewall exceptions, changing preference settings within RealPlayer itself). What else can I check?

It seems to be mostly WM files that won't play the video (only sound). Please help me! This extremely frustrating for how much I've spent on this computer.

Does anybody know the parameters for a 7200rpm, 80 GB Samsung HDD? My bios is set up to auto detect a new hard drive, but it sort of freezes and won't do anything, including let me out of the bios. When the computer first starts to boot it lists the new hard drive. If I let the computer continue to boot, the next page has the configuration and instead of having the primary master, primary slave, secondary master, etc. listed, it stops at the primary master and has no info about it.
I had hoped that just in case the bios wouldn't recognize the whole 80 gigs, I would download a drive overlay from samsung, unfortunately they have an endless loop asking me to register. (Please register before downloading, I register, try to download, and it sends me to the register page again.)

I have an RM Professional P10 laptop, I think I'm right in saying it's actually a re-badged Samsung P10.

The hard drive failed recently and I replaced it and re-installed XP Pro but the Video Controller (WGA compatible) and PCI Modem are highlighted in yellow in the Device Manager. I did require a wireless driver but managed to find that. I presume Samsung drivers would be ok - if I could find them. The problem I have is that if I go on the Samsung site I'm asked for an actual model number, I think P10 is merely a series identifier not an actual model number.

I've looked underneath the laptop and about the only numbers I can find are 1700-256, P/N NV200 and S/N W037939502. I presume the 1700-256 refers to the processor speed and the RAM fitted.

There's an RM telephone number underneath the laptop but it comes up as number unknown...

No, and there may not even be any.

Could be a Mini-HDMI port: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882678052

Or DisplayPort: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort

Or Mini-Display Port: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini_DisplayPort

Any of those can be easily converted to regular HDMI unless the TV has a native (mini)DisplayPort

If I had to pinpoint what just preceded the failure of my dvd-drive, I had been installing some firmware for the drive itself. There were two firmware updates, so I installed the first with what seemed like no problem, then after reboot, I did the second one and walked away since it seemed to hang a bit (if I remember correctly). The computer restarted and nothing with the firmware program was there... so I figured that it installed. Generally, since that point, I've been having trouble with the drive.

The drive read properly in the Device Manager, with no yellow caution signs, and it shows a CD Drive with my harddrives in the Computer (formerly My Computer) window. The green light on the exterior of the drive is light, but it doesn't flicker with activity. Pressing the eject button does nothing (not even an interior whirl of a motor). Paper-clip ejecting to manual put a disc in does nothing as well; the disc doesn't read, and again, it's silent.
