When doing a search for that beep pattern\code. Any reference I find points to a video card problem. Most likely a hardware failure. This would seem to be the case as demonstrated by the black screen.

When I visit the Samsung site I can not find that particular model though.

Seems to be a UK entry, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Laptop-Ath...m/dp/B001PQG6C4.

I can get to the Samsung UK website but I cannot get any support info on this laptop...IE crashes.

Hello I seen your last post with only a quote asking you if you can boot into safe mode.

Perhaps that is your way of asking what is safe mode?

If this is the case.

Safe mode is running Windows with a limited amount of drivers and programs running to trouble-shoot hardware problems or driver problems.

You can access safe-mode by booting up your computer, once it boots past the black and white POST BIOS screen and just before the Windows splash screen with logo would load, you repeatedly press the F8 key on the keyboard.

If this works, you should see a screen saying Windows is loading safe-mode to trouble-shoot your computer. (not the exact wording)

If it loads in safe-mode you'll know because the screen of the desktop will have the words SAFE-MODE in each corner.

Bruce.

The Quote button should only be used when it makes sense...it's not necessary in a topic where it's easy to logically see what is being addressed ~ Hamluis.
