Preferred Solution: samsung kies on windows 8

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.)

A: samsung kies on windows 8

Hello David,

It shows Kies 3 as compatible with Windows 8**, so it should work if you don't have that version.

I've posted this same topic in the networking forum but I think this subforum might be better. Mods can delete the other one.

Yesterday I read about a new firmware update for my Samsung Galaxy S3, and I decided to install Kies on my laptop so I could get it (for many Galaxy S3 users in the Netherlands that day, Over The Air updates didn't work).

First I tried the browser version of Kies, saw nothing about updates so I downloaded and installed Samsung Kies, but that didn't work either. I watched a help video inside the program which was run with Java (I had to install that too, yet I believed I already had it, but I clicked ok anyway)

I didn't have my USB cable with me to connect my phone to the program and it didn't work via wireless either. So I uninstalled it and tried Kies Mini, that didn't work either so I uninstalled that one too, and then had to reboot.

Wanting to resume my work on a website, I wanted to see how it looked in Chrome, Firefox and IE but noticed NONE of them start up. The process starts and stops in half a second.

Here's a list of things I tried:

1. System Restore up to the point of AFTER installing Samsung Kies (unfortunately I couldn't go back any further)
2. Uninstalled Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Kies, Kies Mini and Java.
3. Reinstalled Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Kies, Kies Mini and Java.
3. Ran Spybot Search and Destroy, found nothing big, no trojans or anything.
4. Deleted as many mentions of the keywords Chrome, Firefox and Kies in... Read more

A:Chrome, Firefox, IE won't start after trying Samsung Kies and Kies Mini. Opera will

Because of forum rules we are not allowed to Analise Hijack this logs. Have you tried Revo Uninstaller? Also look into the add-on and exstentions in Firefox and Chrome to see if Kies still installed. If so disable them. Or try Firefox and Chrome in safe mode.

My Version of Win 10 is Home.

Tried to install Samsung Kies to update my phone/

But cannot due to being blocked due to "This publisher has been blocked from running software on your machine".

Been to properties of the file to unblock, with no effect.

Some say to run 'Group Policy Editor', but cannot find this and read that with 'Home' edition it is not installed.

Any one know of a fix, to allow 'Kies' to run with my 'Home' version.


Merry Christmas

A:Windows 10 Home - Samsung Kies

You should be able to install it this way :-

This allowed me to install Kies on Windows 10:
Windows key + X key
Command Prompt (Admin)
Shift + right click on program (e.g. Kies) do this in File Explorer
Copy as path
Paste in Command Prompt just right-clicking in the cmd window did the Paste for me
Hit Enter
Text in Italics added by me.

I hope this makes your Christmas Merrier.

I recently found that my Win 7 PC was only running Microsofts own default VGA video drivers.
My video is SiS760 on board so I downloaded the only drivers I could find but they were for XP.
On installing I found that whilst everything else seemed as good or better than before when booting Samsung Kies (Samsung Galaxy support software) that the program gave a mixture of readable, distorted and broken display.
If I reinstalled Kies there was no change and the problem was still there. It only went when I reverted to Windows generic video drivers.
Can anyone tell me if there is a correct Win 7 driver for the on-board SiS760 graphics device anywhere as I have hunted and cannot find one.
I have also found that using the generic driver the (atrocious) Windows media player 12 does not allow me to change the brightness/contrast/speed options which I was also hoping would be cured by the correct driver.
As this PC came to me as a 'dumper' when the previous owner screwed up a Windows 7 install I'm not sure if it ever had anything other than the default windows drivers for video.
I don't need a mega fast video card as this PC simply controls and reads data from workbench test gear so I'm not going shell out dosh to stick another card in but it would be nice to have full use of WWP12 as it's apparently not possible to downgrade to WMP11.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:sis760 video + Windows 7 + Samsung Kies problem


You are not going to find a Windows 7 driver for this graphics chipset.
The last release SiS made for that chipset was for 32-bit XP, which meant the laptop you have originally had 32-bit XP on it, and someone tried a Windows 7 upgrade to it (as you said).

If you want full use of the card, reinstall Windows XP on it. That's the only option i'm afraid.

Windows8 gives the following problem on start up ......well what's new?

after a short while a Windows warning shield advises "Server Busy" with the following useless information, This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose switch to activate the busy program and correct the problem.

Poor fool me did as the warning shield asked only to be confronted by that magnificently designed Windows start menu that I paid $5 AUD to get rid of and of course there was no program running.

A quick look at task manager showed something interesting. Somehow Samsung Kies had started a tray icon program without being requested to and which does not show up in the tray icon customisation area either which is making some kind of system call. If you end the task the problem goes away, at least for the present.

There have been three updates on the computer that may be responsible one by Microsoft for a driver, one by Nvidia graphics and the final one by Sun Microsystems for java. The problem has only presented itself since these updates and as they were all done in the one session it is not possible for a mere mortal such as myself to pinpoint the exact piece of wizardry responsible.

For those responsible I have taken a few screen shots so they can sit there and laugh and say we gotcha! and for their entertainment are attached.

Anyone in Wizard class is invited to advise me how to get rid of this pain with the least work possible.

A:Samsung Kies problem

This may not be the answer you're looking for but here's what I did; In the first place, I found Kies to be one of the most screwed up pieces of bloatware I've tried, so, as soon as Kies installed the device recognition drivers, I uninstalled Kies and manage my stuff myself. That's about it!

I use to have Kies on my previous pc but it 'died' on me. As the pc was totally dead I couldn't even search for assistance from TSG or any other like you.
So I took it to 'Curries PC world' expecting to shell out to them to fix it, honestly I was quite willing to pay to get back online. Like so many things we attach our selves to, we don't miss it until it's gone. I was gutted to be told there isn't a damn thing that can be done to retrieve the info, personal stuff like addresses, phone numbers and a whole stack of info. The other thing was, when at one point I downloaded Kies, I couldn't make either of my mobiles to connect. What on earth am I doing wrong
Regarding the above, I would really like to hear from anyone who can furnish me with some advice, like if it is possible to remove a hard disk or what ever. I have a new lap top now so it's only the info, not to use it.

The above leads me onto another problem. I had Samsung Kies installed on my old machine, now though I am trying to install it again, I really do need it for photographic records. The snag is, for the life of me I can't recall who I used before,(that last sentence makes no sense does it), but I'm having problems and had to scan twice, to remove, do they call it 'Malware', something that my internet security found, quarantined and advised me that it wasn't good.

Recently I purchased a samsung galaxy sII, and I am attempting to connect it to my computer using Samsung Kies, and it is continuously failing to install the MTP driver, and I think this has something to do with the fact that windows update won't offer me any updates whatsoever, or even search for updates. And I think this is the process used for adding drivers?

I haven't posted on a forum for a long time, so if I left anything out feel free to abuse, i mean ask nicely for the information to help me.

Any suggestions are appreciated, thankyou

HD controller error. Please run a chkdsk as per below.

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
B- Elevated Command Prompt:

Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.

Double click on the Source column header.

Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).

Copy/paste the results into your next post.

Although all my drivers are up to date, I now get this.

Minidump files can be found here.

Additional information:

The blue screen happened right after I started up Kies to upload some photos.

These blue screens have been happening for some time now, perhaps three days. I tried everything from sfc/scannow to a system startup repair back with the system service exception problem before realizing I only had to let Windows Update do its job. (Last updates had been done on 6.6.2012)

What can I do now? Where does this problem even arise from?

Problems on initializing Samsung 80GB with Samsung's Disk Manager: Ontrack(tm)


There is some problem on my 80gb Samsung HD. The situation is this:

I have had an old computer which have an ancient motherboard.. because of the limitations of motherboard it was initializing Hd as 8gb.. I installed Samsung's Disk Manager program named Ontrack. It does something with the MBR to make the 8gb initialized HD as 80gb! When you're in bios setup, it says your samsung is 8gb but when you reset and wait for the system disk error message Ontrack activates and then your hd is 80 gb, you can install OS after that.

Here is the problem: I bought a new computer whose motherboard to initialize my 80GB hd as 80GB also, but things didn't happen like that. On bios setup it says my HD is 33gb.

I plugged the HD to my other computer and its partition magic 8 says "33gb BAD" also..

A modified MBR by a program (ontrack) can fool bios setup? if so, can i use XP CDs system recovery console with fixmbr command? ?f it is not how can i make my hd back to normal (not for old motherboards, initialized as 80GB)??

New motherboard is MSI RS482M2-IL and because of this problem I cannot enable S.M.A.R.T. feature. I need help and thanks from now on!

Hello Friends.  I successfully installed a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD as a boot drive just fine.  However, it looks like the Windows 10 NVME driver is being used in place of the Samsung NVME driver.  I saw this post here where it says: "Windows is indicating it is using the NVMe driver for this drive." https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Envy-750se-capable-of-M-2-NVMe-... However I do not know how to determine this myself.  I am using a utility called "AIDA64 Extreme" and it's telling me the driver provider for the 950 is Micrososft and the driver version is 10.0.14393.0.  So, how do I get the 950 to use the Samsung driver instead?  Thanks for any help.

After installing Samsung Touch Supporter on my non-samsung PC,I get this:

"This Program only runs on a Samsung PC.
Program will terminate."

I try to use some of the software that came with the Samsung Series 7 PC.
I will not let me open the program.
I have an Archos 9 PC and would like to use it.

Can anyone make it so that I can install this software on any other PC?
Sometimes it's a simple edit,can anyone look in to this?

Software can be downloaded from the Samsung website here(it's under manuals & downloads/software):
Support - Tablet PCs XE700T1A | Samsung Tablet PCs

May you please attempt to fix Play Touch App (Software) (ver.,Play Touch Luancher (Software) (ver., and Touch Supporter (Software) (ver.

Note: Play Touch Laucher says the same message as above,but still manages to open, Touch Supporter does not though

A:Samsung Series 7 software on non-Samsung PC.

That software is only licensed to use on the Samsung PC it came on, so I don't know why you would expect it to work on any other PC.

Samsung is also the most difficult model to get the OEM software to work after a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is entirely legal and recommended for most users of preinstalled Windows to get the best Win7 performance.

But for Samsung it's especially important to back up the Recovery Image and make a secondary Win7 backup image so that if any features are missing after Clean Reinstall and the Samsung software won't work correctly, you can set it back to factory condition.

I just got prompted to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my Samsung Q330 laptop. The upgrade downloaded and I watched the upgrade process go from 0-100%. The machine then started to reboot and there was a "loading files" message, but it then hung with the new Windows 10 logo displayed. There was 15 minutes of no activity (i.e. no hard disk activity) so I forced a power down and restarted. The first 3 times I restarted it booted into the Windows 7 login screen, but powered off automatically before I had the chance to enter my password. The 4th time it allowed me to login (to Windows 7), and I'm now back to where I started (i.e. with exactly the same Windows 7 environment that I had before I started).

I just repeated the above process and got exactly the same result, with the exception that this time I did NOT force a shutdown after it hung with the Windows 7 logo (after the "loading files" message). This time the machine shut down by itself after about 10 minutes.
Any idea how I can get the upgrade done?

A:Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7 failed (Samsung Q330)

After 6 attempts to upgrade from Win7, it finally worked. The first attempts I got a different error code each time.
This time, it worked. Here is what I did:

Go to start menu, type "msconfig"
click on start tab and disable every non system program, especially antivirus and malware protection
Apply and close window.
Disconnect all external usb devices like printers and hard drives. eSATA ones too,
Reboot and try it again. Worked for me with a dinosaur 8 year old system.

I have installed Win 7 on my NC10. I used the drivers from Samsungs website. Everything seems fine except that in device manager I have showing a missing driver which comes under Other-Video Controller. I have tried everything I can but without success. Has anyone any idea what this could be please.

A:Windows 7 Samsung NC10

Acording to the Samsung site you have the Intel 945GSE 128Mb Integrated Graphics card.

From past experience if it shows "Other-Video Controller" in the device manager firstly install the Correct drivers normally which I gather you already have then delete the "Other-Video Controller" then click on "scan for hardware changes" It should pick up the drivers again automatically and install the controller correctly.

My mum has a Samsung lappy and this is how I corrected the same issue that she had ... hope it also solves your problem

So glad I found this website - definitely helped me through attempting to salvage data from the stock hard drive in my Samsung NP-XQX411-A01UB when it failed recently. I bought a new hard drive (Western Digital, good reviews on the HD) to replace it, and when it arrived today, I started the process of getting the laptop back to life. 
I have a system recovery CD, which let me install Windows7  just fine... but a slew of drivers are missing, of course. There was no second disc with such things as some people have suggested. I've been on the Samsung website looking at the list of drivers available to download.. but a) they don't match the list my laptop gives of missing drivers and they are all listed for Windows XP, not Windows 7.
So what to do? That laptop itself won't connect to the internet until drivers are installed, so I can't try auto updates yet.  And just directing me at that list on the Samsung site doesn't help! NONE of the downloads listed on the Samsung website are clearly matches for what my laptop says it needs.
Here's the list my computer gives of what is needed:
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller
Network Controller
Ethernet Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller
So which ones do I download, from where? 
Help appreciated!!

When I did the new clean install of Windows 10 on my XPS 9530, after applying the Samsung Magician software 4.6, i noticed that I could not enable RAPID mode because the software was unable to determine my OS Version.  I did some poking around and found this Microsoft forum posting about having the similar problem with Windows 10 Preview version.
Even though Windows 10 is out and legit, it doesn't look like Samsung is ready to release an update to its software that will fix this problem.  The posting has instructions but if you rather save time reading
[Back out Samsung Magician 4.6 if you already installed it before proceeding]
1.  Install Samsung Magician 4.4 from this link (the link is from Samsung) and reboot.  IGNORE any upgrade notification you get until you have completed the next step!
2.  Enable RAPID Mode on the drive you want and reboot.  Make sure that RAPID mode is working with a speed test, you will know when its working
3.  Now perform an inplace upgrade to the software.  For me, it only updated the software to 4.5 however I have the EVO 1tb drive installed so I wanted to get the lastest, 4.6.  So I did a series of 2 upgrades.   
I now have 4.6 running with RAPID Mode enabled.  The kicker is, IF I should require backing out of RAPID mode, I will be unable to reenable with the current version of 4.6.  I would have to downgrade and start these steps all over again.  However in the enti... Read more

I?ve got a Samsung NC10 netbook and how could I install Windows 7 home premium on it that I have pre ordered

A:Windows 7 on Samsung NC10

First, this machine is a poor candidate for windows 7. The lack of an optical drive means that you will need an external usb drive for installation. The advertised video ram is only 64mb, so you will not be able to run the aero themes. The factory installed memory is only 1gb and that is not enough IMO to run any version of Windows 7. While you may be able to get it installed and running, the experience will be less than satisfying.
