Still Having Problems?

by Code7526 / May 2, 2013 4:06 PM PDT

Hi All

When I leave my laptop(Samsung Rv510) on all the time and change when my computer sleeps,so that the
computer never sleeps, the laptop is fine, however if I put the laptop to sleep it won't start again, I have to put the Samsung recovery disc in and do a repair of the
operating system.

Why does this happen?

This morning when I put the Samsung recovery disk in, it just loaded the windows files and said there was nothing to repair and my windows operating system started operating fine again.

I changed when my computer sleeps to 'never' so that I don't have this problem again.

Best regards James

Sadly it's something I encountered.

This was noted from a few causes. The worst one was a rootkit and then I've encountered hardware issues. The worst was a new mainboard (due to cost) and others being cheaper drives or ram.

To test if it's hardware I have to slip in a new HDD, restore to factory and test that without making any change from default (BIOS or Windows.)

There is also one other area. I've see this error occur with USB things are plugged in. Odd, but simple to test for. Unplug USB things.

Thanks for the answers!

I press the power button to wake my Samsung RV510 up, however it doesn't boot, the screen is black and I have to put in the Samsung recover disk and reload the window files and choose the 'repair' option on the screen,once the computer loads window files again.

Now that I have changed the settings of my computer,so that it never sleeps and I never turn the computer off, the computer seems fine.

I have replaced the hard drive of this computer already as the old hard drive was damaged and I suspect I was sold a cheap hard drive. It won't be worth my while to replace my hard drive if my computer gives me trouble again because the money I would of spend on two hard drives will be close to buying a new cheap laptop. I can now actually get a computer tablet for about the price I paid for my new hard drive.

The office is testing some new machine and I gave the nod to that 99 buck 1TB Hybrid HDD and since that's pretty high end, and I don't see any computer tablet I'd go near at 99 bucks I can't guess what you are seeing in your country.

That's a new drive too!

I need to gently press the power button to wake it up. What do you do?
