Preferred Solution: CLONE FAIL SAMSUNG SSD to Samsung SSD Fails on every PC

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: CLONE FAIL SAMSUNG SSD to Samsung SSD Fails on every PC

Create a recovery CD with Macrium(Win PE Rescue), back up your current SSD to an external HDD, install 500GB SSD and boot with rescue CD( Win PE) and restore the image from the back up with Macrium Reflect.
Or
Try this utility, I have cloned with this a while ago: AOMEI Windows Backup, Cloning, and Recovery Software

A:Laptop Problems; Samsung Ultrabook Series 5

This sort of problem is tough to troubleshoot over the internet. It could be quite a few things that could cause the symptoms that you're experiencing. With that said, I'd probably start with updating the discrete GPU drivers. Since you did switch from integrated to discrete, this could be the main cause for the graphic glitches which is probably crashing the system.

Moving forward, I think you should download something like CPU-Z to monitor the CPU load and temperatures during the crashes. It could be that your CPU is overheating and could use some attention.

Hi guys,

I have been trying to access a website for the last few days, and each time I do, I recieve this error message.

ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

The server at [...] can't be found because the DNS look-up failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chromefrom accessing the network.

I tried changing my browser, but the website still didn't open.
Then I switched devices to my mobile, and the browser wouldn't open.
I turned the wifi off my mobile, and the page DID load with mobile internet, so it has to be a problem with my home internet.
My friend has the same provider as us, but the page works perfectly for her.
I'm not the most technologically advanced, so I was wondering what the next step would be to fix this problem?
 

A:DNS lookup fail - specific site.

Three test techniques other than a lousy browser:

get a command prompt and enter PING 8.8.8.8
follow that with PING google.com
this tests your tcp routing and name resolution

then try
get a command prompt and enter NSLOOKUP whatever_domain_name
download http://www.gena01.com/win32whois/ and enter the whatever_domain_name there
and this tests if your ISP dns is worth $0.02.

A:Samsung addresses slow 840 EVO SSD performance with another patch

I have bought several 840 drives myself, and our newest machines at work have 120GB 840 Evos. After installing Magician 4.6, I was presented with the option to upgrade to the EXT0DB6Q firmware. I then disabled rapid mode, and ran the benchmark testing(with rapid mode enabled, you're basically measuring your RAM). I saw about a 200 MB/s increase compared to my lowest score for Sequential Write, and more modest gains elsewhere. Note that with Magician 4.6, Standard performance optimization is not supported on Windows 8 or higher. However, a new "advanced" option is available, that performs a complete rewrite, refreshing data and alleviating access delays. It took about 10 minutes to complete on my system with about 60 GB used. I'll be doing more testing, and anxiously awaiting a Mac compatible ISO, as Magician is not available for OS X.

The Samsung rv510 laptop I have has a rubber plug blocking the HDMI port.
I assume it's because they use the "Case/Shell" for multiple models and this one does not come with it.
My questions:.... Are these built into the mobo or is there a Video card I could replace inside?
I'm assuming it's onboard in which case I will need to get a VGA+3.5mm audio to HDMI adapter in order to make this work?

A:Laptop Fail to save any data to harddisk

You need to say whether you are new to computers or not and which Windows operating system you have. I remember when we first got a computer many years ago the wife thought that I'd deleted her work. In fact we didn't know whereabouts it was saved and couldn't find our way around. If you are a beginner using Windows 7 try clicking on the Start button and then Documents in the menu that opens to the right. By default that's where things are saved but you can use the Save As option and choose a different location.

In August I purchased one of the new Samsung Series laptops with Windows -bit I love the laptop However due to eyesight problems I need to connect it to an external monitor I talked to Samsung BEFORE I bought the laptop and asked if they had a docking station for it They said they did not but that I would be able to connect it to a VGA monitor When I received the laptop I noticed that it did not have a VGA connection only a micro-HDMI connection I again called Samsung debacle external monitor Samsung They told me no problem just buy a VGA to micro-HDMI adapter They told me I could find one at any electronics store I was in Phoenix at the time and could not find it at any electronics store But I found a VGA-USB adapter I tried it and found that it worked except for when I was trying my email or browsers Then it just did not work I decided to buy Samsung external monitor debacle a new monitor and figured I would buy a Samsung monitor because it obviously Would have no problems connecting to a Samsung laptop I found a good monitor the Series S A H Before buying it I called Samsung and asked them if it would work They assured me it would connect to my laptop So I bought the monitor and had it shipped to me overseas When it arrived it only had VGA and HDMI connections I called Samsung again and they told me they had a VGA to micro-HDMI adapter They would not ship it to me overseas but would ship it to a friend in Hawaii who would then re-ship it to me After weeks it arrived However it was not a VGA to micro-HDMI adapter but the charger for my laptop I called back to Samsung and then told me to order it from Samsung parts I contacted Samsung parts and they said they did not have such an adapter and just to get it at any electronics store same story I still could not find such an adapter so I ordered an HDMI to micro-HDMI adapter When that finally arrived I was able to connect Nothing but problems I got no picture on my external monitor unless I unplugged the monitor each time and plugged it back in When I finally got a picture I noticed that it had about a inch border all the way around it thereby making it only a little larger than my laptop picture I called Samsung again and they said something like because of the HDMI to micro-HDMI adapter I could not get the proper resolution on my external monitor This is driving me CRAZY I have spent over on long-distance international calls to Samsung they won t call me because I am out of the US but I must call them and get a call center which is usually out of the US Why would Samsung make a laptop that is impossible to connect to an external monitor Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can properly connect my laptop to this monitor Thank you nbsp

A:Samsung external monitor debacle

edit: okay, now I read it properly.

Your Monitor may not be scaling the resolution to match it's maximum output. Try setting the monitor to be the only active display (as in output to external monitor only) and adjusting the resolution in windows to match the maximum resolution your monitor will allow. If that works, you at least have a starting point.

Also, are they referring to the Samsung AA-AH1NAMB/US Micro HDMI to VGA Adapter??? I'd suggest trying to find an e-tailer that will ship to your location, rather than dealing with Samsung directly anymore, since it REALLY seems to be costing you unnecessary time and money.

Hi All,

I'm really struggling here. I've just purchased some Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Pro Series Red DDR3 Memory with the Specs CAS 12-13-13-35, 1.65V at 2666MHz. I got 2 sets (2x4GB per set, 16GB overall, all 4 slots are occupied). When I choose the XMP profile, the computer fails to post, it resets and then tells me "overclock failed". To get it to boot I set the speed to 2133MHz and it is now stable.

MoBo is an Asus Maximus Vi Hero (Z87) and a Haswell Core i7 4770K with a H60 closed loop on it.
Power supply is a Corsair AX750.

My question is, why can I not hit the advertised speed of 2666MHz? Do I need to send more voltage through them?

Thanks for your help in advance.

I am a beginner of hardware. I find two series of SSD to compare, 840 EVO and M500, because the specifications and the prices of them are approximate.

Both of them use SATA 3, so you need to compare with the read speed and the write speed, if you prefer faster one. The sequential read speed of 840 is 540MB/s, and the sequential write speed is 410MB/s. M500 is slower, but the performance of M500 is great as well, its Shock-resistant design makes it more durable than 840. The most important thing of SSD is the controller, 840 uses 3-core Samsung MDX controller, M500 uses Marvell?s latest controller, maybe the second one is better.

This is my poor review, how to compare them with more details, give me your advice.

We have a new Dell Precision laptop but cannot get two of our USB flash drives (both Lexar Jumpdrive SecureII Plus) to work. They work on our other computers. We can connect other USB devices to the new laptop, including an older flash drive. Strangely, if the problem drives are plugged in before the computer starts they will open properly - but I cannot remove them and plug them in again later.

They do beep every so often. USB Mass Storage shows up in Device Manager, with the warning exclamation. Disk Management will briefly show a disk (1 or 2) with "no media"; sometimes it will disappear then reappear for a second or so.

I have checked for USB driver updates, uninstalled and reinstalled USB hubs shown in Device Manager (though I'm plugging directly into the side of the laptop). I do not understand what would cause these drives only to not work with this computer only.

A:What causes my network workgroup to fail

Hi Shelley123. If your router has at least 4 Ethernet ports at the rear, there is no need for a switch as you have 4 pc's. If your "router" only has 1 Ethernet port, what you have is a modem. Normally, your Internet signal comes in and goes to a modem first, and if you have more than 1 pc or devices that need wireless connectivity,you would connect a wireless router to that single modem port and connect your 4 pc's to the 4 ports found on most routers.If you had at least 5 devices that need to be connected by Ethernet cable, you would use a switch which you would connect to one of your router's ports, then connect the fourth pc and any other Ethernet device to one of the 4 or more ports on the switch. Are you sure you are using a switch and not a hub? Could you tell us what other hardware you have in your network besides your 4 pc's which you connect by Ethernet cable?

I am having a 650GB Samsung Hard Disk. Once I was transferring files from the hard disk to my PC and lights went out. Now when I connect my hard disk it is not being detected though it shows up in the Disk Management menu. I have tried formatting the HDD but it shows time remaining as 300 hours so I had to stop it midway. Is any other solution available for it...??? Please help...!!!

If you feel confident enough, Open it up and remove the hard drive from inside the enclosure and fit it directly in to your pc.

Hey techies I ve been looking into smartphones recently because I intend on getting one in July If I m honest I don t want to spend on the Galaxy S or the HTC One and I d still rather not the Galaxy S Looking around on Amazon there are a number of these flagship clones produced by Star or TTsims for about that on paper look pretty decent and a pretty good substitute to the real deal despite a few pieces of irremovable Chinese software apparently these can be removed by rooting but I have no idea what that is or how the majority of them boast quad-core A s or A s with a MK graphical processor and varying between qHD and fHD AMOLED screens But how DO they compare to the real thing if I m honest compare do real clone to smartphones How thing? the cheap I don How do cheap clone smartphones compare to the real thing? t need the best thing in the world but I d prefer at least p with a quad-core so if none of these actually are that good I may just settle for the Galaxy S Mini If anybody has any experience or knowledge on these matters please share nbsp

A:How do cheap clone smartphones compare to the real thing?

I never really go for clones. Go for something cheaper from a big name brand. There are plenty of smartphones here in the US that are cheap ($50USD-$100), some even free.

I need to know if the HDMI motherboard in a 60" Samsung Plasma TV can be used in a Sony Bravia 52" TV. The motherboard in my Sony died and I have access to one in a Samsung Plasma that's screen cracked.
 

A:Is a 60" Samsung Plasma HDMI motherboard compatible with a 52" Sony Bravia HDMI motherboard.

No, it would not be, in the past I had to repair a tv for a friend that had his board shorted that was an LCD Sony Bravia 52 Inch and its board was very specific as with all Sony Products. The Boards on the TV's are the hearts and the companies that built them don't allow for parts to be interchanged easily. Your best bet is ebay and finding the part number to find a board, that's how I got the one I used to fix it.

Hey guys,

I need your help. These two smartphones cost almost the same in my country, but I'm not sure which one should I buy. HTC has a better UI, but Samsung's specs are more powerful, especially the camera (even though they both have 5MP). On the other hand, I'm not sure what to think of Samsung's screen with weird contrast.

Which one would you buy? Thanks so much in advance.
 

A:Samsung S3 mini vs HTC Desire X?

Well I can only speak for the S3 Mini because that's what I bought a few week back. Personally I love it, think it's great. Not sure what to make of your "weird contrast" comment, haven't found any of that myself.

I'd be pretty confident you wouldn't be unhappy with the S3 Mini

A:Windows 7 Samsung computer will not ryecognize External HDD, "no media"

What Manufacturer and Model is the HDD? Also, on Windows 7, I believe the max partition size a computer can recognize is 1TB, so a suggestions is using Disk Management, seperate it into separate partitions of 750 gb or so, then just link them in a RAID configuration. This will allow Windows 7 to recognize it as a single drive, but will also allowed you to use the full 3TB of space.

I have tried to clone a HDD to a new one and neither Ghost or Acronis will finish the job. Ghost gets to 98% and just stays there for hours. Acronis gets to 75% and says error on sector .... The HDD that I am cloning is a 1.5GB going to a 2GB WD Black. All the info on the older HDD is there and works fine but there must be some type of error that won't let me finish. I have done a check disk already too. Anyone ever experienced this? What can I do?

A:Need some help understanding what happened with a drive clone

Problem fixed. Seagate chat indicated that I should use SeaTools for DOS and that it has an option to set max capacity. I ran it and it went back to 2TB. Then I did a clone with Seagate DiskWizard. It just made that 400GB drive I was cloning all in 1 big partition on my 2TB, which wasn't what I wanted to happen, but gParted resized it down for me. Things seem to be working normally now, but I'm doing a SFC just to make sure no Windows files got truncated/corrupted in the partition shrink, that shouldn't happen of course, but I want to be sure before I get too invested in this (and end up wiping the 400 GB drive at some point for additional storage).

Hey,

First there was resolutions 1440*900 resolution to select but now i don't see that option and all the resolution given doesn't fits the monitor

A:Samsung SyncMaster 943NWX resolution problem ATI

I'm not super familiar with ATI graphics settings, but I had a similar issue with my nVidia 560TI, my monitor was 1080 x 1920 capable, but I could not select the resolution. In my nVidia graphics settings (in the control panel) i had to change the aspect ratio. For some reason it was set to something like 4:3, after changing the aspect ratio to 16:9 I was allowed the 1080 x 1920 reslotion.

Check in your ATI settings (Catalyst Control Center) for the settings to either change the aspect ratio, play around with the settings a bit and see what happens.

A:Samsung Spinpoint HN-M101MBB/Z4 1TB cannot be detected

Since it is unlikely that your notebook/laptop has a floppy drive you will have difficulty installing XP on a SATA drive because of the lack of native SATA drivers supplied with the XP installation disk. No supplied drivers, no recognition of the SATA hard drive. During early Setup you are given the opportunity to hit the F6 key to install third party drivers (I.e. SATA/RAID drivers) but XP only recognizes a floppy drive for this process. These SATA drivers would have to come from the laptop's driver support page at their website.

An alternative is to make a slipstream disk which combines your regular XP CD with the appropriate SATA/RAID drivers to allow recognition of your SATA hard drive by Windows Setup. Perform an internet search for the procedure to make such a disk.

Another alternative is to enter the BIOS and set the controller mode to IDE instead of SATA, that is if your laptop BIOS has that option. Many or most modern desktops do but I don't know about laptops. When set to IDE mode, XP doesn't need SATA drivers to continue the installation.

So yea thats the drive I have on my computer, had it for about 9-10 months. Woke up this morning to play a game in my disc drive to have my computer say, "Hey enter the disc". Open the drive and the disc is in there, so I closed it and still nothing.

Looked on my computer and it shows now Blu-ray Drive under my HDD

Look in my device manager and nothing shows up there as well.

Downloaded the drivers from here only to be told there is no drive detected.

I checked all my connections tried them in different ports on the mobo. I tried different cables still nothing. There is power to the drive because I can open and close it and I hear it reading the disc it just wont send the info to my mobo.

Any advice here would be great.

Alright, so I'm currently tied between the Samsung 830 512 GB and the Crucial M4 512 GB SSD's, and after lots of review reading and internet research I came to the conclusion that the 830 is overall the better drive. The Crucial M4 however is available for me for ~520$ while the 830 goes for ~650$

Now if it was only for the speed difference I'd certainly go with the M4 but seeing as it is a rather old model and the 830 is considered to be the more reliable of the two I just can't make up my mind if it's really worth the price difference. Any help?
 

A:Samsung 830 vs Crucial M4 at this price difference?

I should also tell you specifically that I also want to look at how the drive would stand in say 4 years because that's about the minimum I want to get out of it. That's the main reason that puts me off the older and supposedly a little less reliable Crucial M4, but I just can't decide if 130$ is really what the difference is worth...

Hi

What does the "basic" kit of the Samsung 830 include? nothing but the drive itself?
I got a Corsair Force GT 90 but I guess the mounting is different?

Would you recommend the Samsung 830 256GB over the Corsair Force GT 240GB?

Regards
 

A:Samsung 830 bulk

If you've already got the mounting kit, SATA cables etc. from your current SSD then the basic version of the 830 will be fine.

Yeah the 830 is better than the Force GT. Not as good as the Corsair Performance Pro but that costs quite a bit more.

I recently encountered some signs that one of the harddrives in my RAID0 array is failing and I was wondering if I can clone a RAID0 array to a single HD using Acronis True Image. I tried doing this once before but the OS files were corrupted and none of my drives would load the OS after the cloning attempt so I'm not sure if that was a fluke or possibly the result of trying to clone a RAID array onto a single HD. If it matters the RAID array is two 250GB HDs (only 160Gb used), my backup drive is a single 250GB HD, and I'm running Win7 64-bit. Should I attempt to clone my RAID array or should I just transfer over my important files and forget about cloning?

First of all hello everyone I m new to the forum but i m glad to be one board A couple of weeks ago I built a new desktop for myself but kept my old harddisk and therefore kept all my files I upgraded to Win Home Premium from Vista Home Premium as well When I turn on my pc I connect to my router as normal but it has problems identifying the network and usually defines it as a public network even though the network at on is definitely my private network and promptly doesn t give me internet access Occassionally I do manage to connect to the internet successfully however when this happens I get an error message when opening my browser and indeed all browsers saying that DNS Lookup has failed The issue with not connecting to the network successfully appears to be ip related as diagnosing the problem results in a message that my wireless network adapter does not has a valid rarely Connecting and but when lookup Internet, fails DNS I do to router ip I have renewed my ip address to no avail As far as the DNS Lookup Failure goes IP and DNS are both set to assign automatically although I have tried manually setting the DNS to Google s server just to see what happens nothing I have disabled my firewalls and made sure that the browsers are allowed through I have of course reset my modem several times which doesn t help I also flushed the dns just to see if that did anything I ve had a quick look at my router settings but Connecting to router but rarely Internet, and when I do DNS lookup fails I m hesistant to change anything since I don t know much about it and I have housemates that also connect through the router As far as my internet adapter goes I m using an old D-Link g- which hasn t every given me any problems I ve also made sure that the drivers for this are up to date Any help would be wonderful I m quite sick of having no internet Thanks nbsp

A:Connecting to router but rarely Internet, and when I do DNS lookup fails

Just a bit more info...

Just posting things while I remember them...

I had problems connecting yesterday so fiddled with my settings for a bit. Then restarted, and connected (but still got a DNS error). However, having done exactly the same thing today I haven't been able to connect at all.

I just tried to system restore from yesterday to see if I could at least emulate that and get connected to the internet, but no dice.

How frustrating...

Hello, my ex built me this computer about 7 years ago and have not had issues with it since. Currently when I start up the computer it goes the black screen that shows the PCI device listings along with First SATA> Master DISK LBA, SATA 1, 300GB. It has a underscore bar at the bottom left of the screen that blinks then after a few seconds disappears and the PC appears to freeze. Does it sound like my hard drive may have failed?

I have hit the del button at the start that puts me into the Phoenix -Award BIOS CMOS setup Utility and shows First SATA Master WDC WD300JD-00K. I do not hear any beeps at all when I start it up either.
I hope this is enough information, as I am not tech savey at the least

Thank you!
 

A:HDD fail?

No I don't think that your HDD failed or else it wouldn't even list in the BIOS CMOS setup utility. You also mentioned that it doesn't beep when you boot it up at all either that is a sure sign that your HDD didn't fail because it would make some sort of beeping noise. Just to be sure however I would pull the side off of the computer and listen to the HDD to see if it makes in peculiar sounds or beeps. I also need to know does the computer still boot up after the black screen and the pci device list?

I'm considering buying a new SSD, because I could always use faster speed to boot up Windows and load programs and such. I'd like to keep my old OS partition intact but I'm not sure what kind of performance hit would I suffer from cloning my partition to SSD?

Is it worth getting an SSD in light of this or is it just better to start over fresh?

My Specs are:

Acer Aspire x3200 w/ AMD Phenom X3 (TripleCore) 8400 2.1 GHz (Stock speed & HS)
4 GB G·Skill DDR2 800 PC2-6400
Onboard NVidia GeForce 8200/9200
Asus Xonar DX
WD 500GB (30 GB OS partition w/ 9 GBs free space)
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Build 7600
 

A:Clone partition to SSD?

What you are proposing should be fine but the partition you are cloning must be smaller than the capacity of the SSD, the increased speed of the SSD should be noticeable and you won't get a performance hit from cloning the drive.

Acronis True Image is excellent software to use for this and it can shrink the partition you are cloning to make it fit on the SSD, obviously with some limitations.

A:Hard disk detection fail

This sounds like a dead or dying hard disk. What brand is your disk? Most hard disk manufacturers have diagnostic software that can be downloaded and burned on a CD to be booted from. They can run all kind of tests to see if you hard disk is in good shape.

But if two different computers are unable to even detect the hard disk, I'm quite sure it's faulty.

My father recently bought some more RAM (4 gb for a total of 6gb). Since he put it in his PC has been acting funny. Now he is getting hard drive fail messages during the boot up. His HD then started making clicking noises which in my past experience means the HD is done. Now he can't boot up at all. I didn't think RAM could do that. The RAM is identical to the other RAM, they're both DDR2 and both PC5200. His HP is upgradeable to 8gb of RAM.

Thanks for any help.

A:Samsung S24A350H problem

My guess is that your monitor has some kind of "Store Demo" setting. Both my LG monitor and my Samsung TV has this, it took me some time to find out. It changes your settings automatically to predefined settings that look good when showing the monitor in a store.
Look for settings like "Mode setting", "Quick start" or "Plug and play", and change to home use.

Edit: Find these settings on your monitors menu, not in Windows

Motherboard type: Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L

Tried to connect all 3 together in any possible way but my PC wouldn't start or
reboot before windows gets to load.
I tried to pull out the old 2x1GB sticks and just put the new 2GB one and it
worked perfectly.
Now i installed 1GB+2GB and it works great but
i bought the new stick in order to have 4GB total, not 3.

Any way i can fix this? maybe i'm doing something wrong?
or could it be a bios problem? my bios version is F8 (2 updates behind the latest version)

A:Logical disk manager fails (among other things)

You need to specify your OS and SP level. I am suggesting you could try system repair. Here is the Vista method. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936212 XP is similar. I am not familiar with the Win7 version.

In the case of XP this wont be very effective unless you actually have the install CD with slipstream SP level as well.

Other possibilities are system restore to before the original error; and/or a deep scan for malware.

Failing all that, a complete system reinstall might be advisable, which is a pain in fundamental anatomical areas.

Hiya

I've just been browsing on the internet through my wireless router.
Now its not working, its saying i'm connected to the router but not letting me go online.

I did the cmd winsock thing and that made no difference. I then connected through the cable and it was working fine, now i've unplugged from the router and its loading reallllllly slow/un usable.

Whats happened? it was saying it couldnt connect to dns server 192.168.1.1, but then it started working... but now its not :/
 

A:Samsung Vista laptop wireless now playing up

This sounds like either a fault with the routers wireless transmission or your wireless card in the PC.

Start by resetting the router, there should be a reset button somewhere on it, usually you will need a thin wire to push into the whole and hold it until the router responds. This will reset it to default so any security settings will need to be reset.

If there is no change take a look in Device Manager for your wireless card under Network Adapters, right click on the device and select properties, check to see if it reports any problems. If no problems are reported try uninstalling the device and then reboot so that windows will reload the drivers.

Let us know how you get on.

A:How can I install new Samsung multifunction printer onto wireless network?

To set up the printer for wireless use you need to assign it an IP address which it will transmit for the PC's in the network to log on to. If the printer does not have its own screen it will need to be connected by cable to a PC in order to do this.

If the setup disc will not run get a replacement as you need to install the printer drivers in all your PC's.

If you cannot replace the disc you will have to go the the Samsung site and download the drivers from there that are for your OS's.

As you now have the printer running off one PC you will need to install the printer drivers on the other PC's and then activate printer sharing. If I new what OS you are using on all the PC's I could give more details.

So yesterday I was on my computer and my monitor started displaying a "check signal cable" message on my screen. First thing I thought was oh snap my video card took a crap on me. So I plugged the monitor into the built in vga port. Still same thing. Then I thought, I would try plugging the monitor into my laptop. So I plugged it into my laptop. The laptop registered it was there so I set up duel screens. The laptop knew that the monitor was there, you could scroll of the laptop screen to the desktop screen, but still the monitor reads check signal cables. I then decided that my VGA cable must be faulty, so i replaced that. Still same error. I really don't want to get a new monitor, I have fallen in love with this one.

Any Ideas?

Hi to all (and happy new year!)

I want to buy a 2.5" external drive, but as you can imagine i don't know which one.
I have already opened a thread like this in tom's hardware:

[ I can't post the link due to rules, please google username gouzou in tomshardware to find the thread ]

but i wanted more like a debate on this matter.

The competitors are:
1) WD my passport Elite 5400rpm, 750gb
2) Seagate Goflex Pro 7200rpm, 500gb
3) Samsung S2 HX-MTA64DA, 7200rpm(i think..), 640gb

WD and Seagate come in same price, Samsung $20 more.
Please consider rpms, density of data, reliability and only usb3.0 or esata for your verdict.

I mainly want the drive to have high write rate.
 

A:Western Digital vs Seagate vs Samsung External 2.5"

Well for the start all those have preloaded software on them, if you like them or no thats up to you (for backing up your media).

the Seagate Goflex Pr haves some nice features, but only if you have a device to use it, ill say its between the WD and the Samsung, obviusly the Samsung will be faster but the WD haves 90Gigs more,its up to you if you want more speed or those 90Gigs more.

Hi all,

I just added a new Samsung DVD writer to my system and when I booted into Windows the drive cannot be seen. I rebooted and checked in the BIOS and the drive could be seen. So logged back into Windows and still nothing could be seen.

I have a SATA HDD which the OS runs off so didn't think it was the drivers. When I checked around on the internet the only thing that I could find was to upgrade the firmware, but in order to do that, Windows has to be able to see the device. Device doesn't appear in device manager so I'm now at a total loss. Any one got any ideas?
 

A:Samsung SATA SH-S223C cannot be seen in Windows

Some motherboards include SATA controllers made by two different makers which need different drivers. Maybe you have such a second controller and you plugged the new optical drive into one of it's ports. If so, you can just install the appropriate driver.

A:Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB hard drive--making me feel ill

Make sure your motherboard is not touching the case chassic and instead is screwed on properly.

Make sure of all your connection turn off computer and turn off PSU switch.

Wait 10 seconds turn switch on and turn on computer and let us know what happens.

I have tried updating several times my ATI drivers with no success. The catylist software installs fine but the driver fails. I have tried uninstalling first, rebooting, then installing with no luck, even tried an older driver with no luck. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

What are you updating; a PC or a laptop?

I have a Compaq laptop and I want to upgrade to a larger hard drive but my Restore Disks wont work when the new drive is in. The old drive has 2 partitions- the Windows partition and a Restore partition. I cant figure out how to transfer these to the new drive. I tried Drive Image but it just creates a backup image on the new drive.

I have a VAIO VPC computer with Windows 7 operating system. I was installing the software for my Palm TX Organizer, and when it came to connecting the device to the computer, I received the message that the system was locating the drivers for the device and then informing me that no drivers were available. When I tried to sync the device through the palm program it will not recognize the presence of the device. I uninstalled and downloaded a new version of the program from the Palm website encountering the same situation when I connected the device to the computer.

I have also experienced this same situation with the installation of Tunes Plus to allow for the uploading of my iPod music onto iTunes on the computer, I continually get a device not present message.

Can anybody out there throw some light on this problem?
 

A:Program fails to recognize devices after installation

Windows doesn't need drivers to detect a Plug and Play device.

So forget about drivers for the moment....

1) You don't say how you connect the device to your compute. I'll guess USB???

2) Then start with the basics: Are you hearing the USB ding/dong sound affect as you should when connect / disconnect a USB device????

Hello All,

I have an Adaptec 5405 raid controller (1.2ghz ROC & 256mb DDR2) with 4 Samsung F3s in RAID10.

I get a minimum read speed of 290mbs, and an average of 380mbs across the array with an 11ms response time.

I was going to buy an SSD - but maybe it's not worth it?

Intel XM25 says read speeds of up to 250mbs... and writes of up to 70mbs...

Any advice?

Regards,

Alex.
 

A:4 x Samsung F3 in RAID10 vs Intel XM25 SSD

Get an ssd for your os, they usually run faster on dedicated cards than through the mobo itself. Or maybe I should ask what exactly do you want to use the ssd for.

I got a gb SP C SATA HDD which I ve been using for some years now a week ago the harddisk started freezing like for - seconds etc and coming back and sometimes it froze so I needed to restart when I hooked SP2504C Samsung dead? up another harddisk for the OS and used the SP C as storage sometimes the harddisk would just go offline wouldn t appear in disk management mycomputer etc and finally now whenever I hook it up the BIOS into screen freezes up for a minute or two Samsung SP2504C dead? and it doesn t see my harddisk I tried all different SATA slots changed cables did everything but everytime I hook this harddisk up it just freezes bios for minutes and when I get into Windows the harddisk is of course Samsung SP2504C dead? isn t there I just need to recover some files wont even pass mb so I need a minute or two of an access to the harddisk what can I do about this Edit The harddisk also makes a clicking noise when it s hooked up Thanks already nbsp

A:Samsung SP2504C dead?

In nour experience, the lifetime of a Samsung hard drive ends at about three years... or even sooner on the 250GB model... so it is probably time to change to another... If you do it soon, you still have a good chance of rescuing all of your data... but that total failure could occur at any moment... once you start recovering data, do NOT turn off that old hard drive until done.

Hi there,

I just purchased a 1TB Samsung Story Station. I am backing up some files from my PC and get an error message before it even reaches 30gb saying that the hard drive is full?

When I first got the drive I connected it to my PC and put some files on it. Since then I have also connected it to my Mac and and takes some files from my PC and transferred them to the Mac using the Story Station.

Can anyone tell me why I am getting the error message saying it is full when there is only around 30gb being taken up?

Thanks.
 

A:1TB Samsung Story Station saying it's full at 30GB?

What do you see in disk management, especially partitions, space and file system?

I have a Toshiba Satellite A55-S6925 laptop. Several months ago I replaced the display monitor with another of the same manufacturer (Samsung), as the original monitor suddenly developed an internal crack (no trauma!).

The new monitor works, but my entire desktop is shifted 2 cm to the left and a couple mm down. So, part of my desktop I cannot access. I have tried several display settings and updated the monitor driver, both to no avail. Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks!
 

A:My Toshiba laptop monitor (Samsung) screen is off-center

You probably need to replace the inverter at the base of the screen as well. Your screen is a different model, and requires a different inverter is my guess.

What happen prior to this issue? Other than that sounds like the onboard HDD controller gone poof (bad) it can happen without warning. But in your case again what changes did you make to your system prior?
