Hi first time user hope I get this write, I am using system mechanic pro latest version and on the hard drive monitor status it is showing a warning for the spin retry count.

My laptop is only 2 months old should I be worried? and have it looked at. Thanks in advance. Operating system is win8.1

A:My Satellite notebook shows "Spin retry count" warning

In my opinion there is no reason for panic. You are using third part software and they have own rule for reporting S.M.R.T values.

If there is no other problem I think everything is OK.

Open preinstalled ?PC health monitor? and check ?HDD Status?. What is reported there?
I hope ?Good?.

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

Thanks, Robert

A problem has recently developed with my Envy notebook.   About 2 weeks ago my entire wireless network began slowing down when on it.   Noticeable on all devices.    When my provider came out, checked and tweaked some issues it appeared to be ok.   I went on with my daughers HP laptop and was drawing 20-24 mbps all over the house. When I reconnected mine to the system I was only pulling 6, 3, 5, up and down.   It doesn't start right away but after a few minutes.   So I put my duaghers right next ot mine and low and behold, when I ran her's it pulled 3 - 6 also.   So I turned my wi-fi off and hers' popped right back up.   I have also tried this with an old XP mini, my i-pads etc.   As soon as mine gets on the network the speed crashes.    This also happens with no one else home and no other devies conncted. I have downloaded the latest up to date Intel driver for this network adapter and it hasn't changed anything. Any ideas?

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

I made a Google notebook to keep the minutes of a meeting my business partners and I held last weekend. I made them all collaborators on the notebook so they could all make any changes or annotations they felt necessary. However, when they go to access this notebook they are prompted for a password.

There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?

It has been two weeks since I discovered that my Lenovo notebook is unable to connect to the Internet. I think that it might be caused by a software I downloaded negligently, which is a ''hide your IP'' type of device. My Vista notebook is running as smoothly as before, but deprived of an Internet connection.

Can anyone suggest solutions on how to repair my Internet connection, or better still, reset my operating system? By the way, my manufacturer did not provide me with a Vista Recovery/Installation Disk. Also, a recovery manager software, unlike in HP, isn't installed. Thank you!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Yes do a system restore not a factory restore, you go back about 5 days before the problem started and it should correct the probelm, you don't lose any of your documents etc. Lets say if you did a restore 5 days ago you would lose any new software you have downloaded and then you would have to reinstall it.

My own notebook (Asus EEE PC S101), running Windows XP service pack 3) was twice redirected to an unknown website when I wanted to visit the Guardian newspaper website. I was using IE version 8. Then the notebook froze. When this happened, I had to switch it off without using Cleanup, which I have used safely for a long time. When I had switched it on again, I used Firefox to go to the Techsupport Forum. I followed the instructions to download dds.scr and began running it. Then the notebook froze again. It still tells me "Two logs shall be created on your desktop" Now the cursor does not move any more either. I write this from another notebook, but I cannot create a logfile,m as everything is frozen on my own notebook. Help, please,

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place.
My new notebook an M50-MX5 was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem, however that was not the case; it was the media.

Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level 2 tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it 2 days earlier, this was last month.
And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed, however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot.

While it was in the shop I used my 3 yr old toshiba satellite 2410 which I am now typing on at this moment.
I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba M50 on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn't take long to Ghost the Images back.

Well, in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this 3 year old satellite that I am presently using.
After the techie got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M50, it crashed.

He was using the wrong Ghost, he was using the one that was from this unit???
I was not happy, especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot. He said it was my Norton 2006.

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

Hi there :)

I just installed Windows 7 on a friend's laptop, she was using Windows XP and wanted to upgrade.
The laptop is a Samsung p500 model, 2-3 years old but definitely still works perfectly fine.
The graphics card is an ATI Radeon 1250 (or approximation - I had the exact model earlier but she's since taken her laptop home.)
On installing Windows 7, all of the drivers that automatically installed worked perfectly fine but the VGA drivers. Windows insists that the best driver I can get for the laptop is a generic video driver or something in not as many words. It basically means that the highest resolution I can get is 1024x768, and the transparency doesn't work. The coverflow features on iTunes doesn't even work and it was fine on XP.
I went to the Samsung website, and they don't supply Windows 7 drivers for this particular laptop, i'm not sure whether it's due to the laptop being pretty old or Windows 7 installing the drivers automatically.
I tried the Windows Vista driver, but the download is a piece of software that checks your driver to see if it is the best one available, and it didn't seem to actually do anything when running.

It's not the biggest issue in the world, and I understand if there is just no Windows 7 driver for this graphics card, its just a pain in the **** to be stuck on a low res.

I can always roll her back to XP, just defeats the point of upgrading (and no, I won't subject her to Vista :p)

Any help is appreciated massively! :D

Here is the ATI driver page and their explanation of why they don't have a Win 7 driver for it, basically the older cards/chips only support DX9 so they have chosen not to update past Vista.> http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...4&lang=English

You need to get your display driver from the manufacturer website.

If you do, that is a driver that you need to get. Search for your computers display driver first in order to get your hd graphics. What is the make and model of your computer?

I have a windows 7 Samsung recovery media disk and a Samsung notebook model-NP-N110 with windows xp home edition. Obviously my notebook does not have a disk drive and I want to install windows 7 on it using the disk. I am ok with computers but not very technical so if you could explain things and describe what I have to do it would be good

A:Need help installing windows 7 on a Samsung notebook

The simplest, most direct way would be to use an external USB DVD drive. You will need to access the Boot Options in the BIOS to set the computer's boot order to USB as the first choice. Once you do that you can boot from the recovery disk and proceed with the restore.

Have you tried to do a restore from the hdd using what Samsung refers to as "Recovery Solution 4"? From the Samsung website here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/Su...224&fm_seq=392 (scroll down to the sections describing how to do a restore) It seems that you should press F4 when you first see the Samsung logo to access "Recovery Solution 4".

HI,

So, you are planning to install Windows 7 but you are getting an error when it restarts...
Make sure if you install windows, that you completely format the drive, So that all the partitions are gone (or at least a clean partition to install windows on.)

Otherwise you could try activating the installation within (asuming) windows xp. and install it that way.

Seems like it started after loading Norton. The touchpad works, but wont let me select anything with the left or right buttons. I have put in a usb mouse and that seems to work. The buttons work when I am in safe mode. What would cause it to not work in normal Win 7? To be specific, the pad seems fine, the buttons do not work in Win 7.

Does your Notebook have a specific key on the keyboard that enables/disables the touchpad? I know some Dell models have this. (It's kind of like a Caps Lock or Num Lock key that lights up. You may have to use the Function key to get at it).

I think my first step would be to check out the hard drive using either diagnostics built into the bios or a bootable CD with something like Seatools for DOS. If the drive is on it's way out all other attempts to boot or repair are ultimately futile and it's time to get started on file recovery.

Smartsense is pretty well implemented on my hp m6 notebook using windows 7.
but on my Samsung NP365E5C, the driver Samsung allowed it to have was dated back in mid 2012, and lacked Smartsense [or Palmcheck]. I can download the later package from synaptics but it will bios [or something] check and not install. cannot force it via device manager either.

any ideas other than using generic mouse driver and good 'ole "Touchfreeze" ???

anyone with a sammy notebook: could I download a later synaptics package for a later model of samsung notebook and install that? if so, how? since sam's "swupdate" util controls the show?

Not sure where to post this question...New Samsung laptop has 99gb of space on c drive and 350 gb on d drive and is almost empty. Shouldn't most of my space be on the c. I thought that the d was just to save system back up???

Thanks, Joe
 

A:Solved: Samsung notebook drive space

Yes, you are correct, but I would check with the OEM (Samsung) and/or the place you bought it.
It could be a "Returned" machine and was not cleaned up right.

Hi,the notebook of my wife entcounters problems when booting. Seems like ony part of Windows is started.Make of Notebook: Samsung NP305E7A (from nameplate)no additional hardware (except mouse of course :-)OS: Windows 7 Premium Home Edition, Automatic update enabledVirus Protection: WSE, but I do not know when the last scan took place. My wife does not do much on the internet.Problem:When starting the computer the boot option screen appeares (for the shutdown was not done properly before, see below)Starting 'Normal mode':Stratup procedure seems normal, maybe a little slow, but this might well be a deception.The buttons in the bottom bar (is that the navigation bar? not so sure about the terminology) however are not responding to moese-action. Clicking the start button should open the menu, but only a tiny white space appears, I'd guess 1 by 10 pixel, above the button.Clicking an icon, say adobe reader, this prog starts, but it seems, all windows-input is gone. No directory, no file selection, no menu bar, just a stripped version of it. After some time the screen deteriorates and the computer crashes to a BSOD. But this does not last long enough for me to take note of the information there.Could not make out how to start Windows Explorer.Starting safe modeOccasionally I managed to have windows explorer opened, but the view is much reduced in size, size of a postal stamp. Whenever a window could be openes, it looks that all the text messages, button texts were missing.What I did... Read more

I'm not clear on this, can you boot into Safe Mode?
 
By tapping the F8 key immediately after pressing the power button you will open the Advanced Boot Options where you can choose the Safe Mode.  Another option there is Last Known Good Configuration, if you can get to the Advanced Boot Options click on that option.

Hi Tech Support Guys - the best in the world!
Until recently, I have been able to see my notebook PC screen on my TV thru an HDMI cable. When I tried it recently, the TV just showed 'No Signal.'
I tried the same HDMI cable connected between my DVD player & the TV & it works fine.
I selected 'Duplicate Displays' in the control panel & when I apply, the notebook screen goes blank for a few seconds then redisplays in a smaller format but nothing appears on the TV - still 'No Signal.'
I have one graphics driver - 'Intel HD Graphics Driver' version 8.760.0.0.
I am wondering if, during a recent Windows 7 pro Update, something got changed/reset/screwed up.
Can anybody help me with this?

Thanks in advance, Rich.

So I recently bought a Samsung Notebook, Model Code: NP-RV515. It came installed with the 32-bit version of windows starter so naturally I went on to try and install the 62-bit version of Windows Ultimate. Unfortunately, my network drivers were lost and upon trying to install new drivers from the manufacture site a prompt appeared telling me that "The Device may not be present or could have been ejected/unplugged from the system". I know this is impossible because I had wi-fi on the starter version.
Secondly, my monitor resolution, which was at 1366x768 on the starter version now has 1024x768 as its highest option.
Please help.

A:Samsung Notebook Network Adapter and Screen Resolution Problems.

You may need to download and install the 64-bit drivers for the problem devices from Toshiba's Africa website. This is the drivers page for your model:
Support for NP-RV515I SAMSUNG

Where it says "Select your language", select "English".
Then click "Driver" in the downloads table.

I purchased a used Acer Aspire 5516, it has a replacement HDD with W7 Home Premium 64, originally it had Vista 64.
There was only a 500GB HDD with a C partition and it showed up as an ejectable media in the system tray. I have partitioned the HDD to 80GB(OS) and 420GB(Media).
Now, both partitions show up as ejectable (USB) media and I cannot assign D to the media partition.
D does not show up as an assignable letter for partitions, I have named it E, this conflicted with my external HDD storage so I renamed my external storage to K.
I have read several possible fix's, bit most opinions on them are that a reg edit is a patch not a fix. Other answers leave a broken system by making the icon dissapear.
I do not have recovery media or the W7 install disk. The W7 serial is good and it regularly updates.
I can't find the drivers (ACHI) on the Acer site and I'm unsure of what INTEL drivers to use.

Can someone help me with this ejectable media issue?

That is typical when using the Microsoft AHCI driver. The Intel AHCI driver is Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) and should be available in the driver downloads from your Laptops Driver downloads page at Acer. The Intel IRST is a raid driver but also includes it's AHCI driver and is the only way to get it. That does not mean you have to run Raid. It will do nothing if you don't run raid except use the AHCI driver.
