Please have patience with us.  I have a job, a family, pets, and a house to take care of.

This is a strange error and will take a lot of work for us to help you fix it.

If you can't wait, I'd suggest taking it to a shop where they will help you right away.

 

Try tapping F2, F4, F10, or F12 at the system resuming message

If it let's you pick your hard drive, select it and see what it does.

What operating system are you using (Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10)?

Lot's of posts regarding errors in your Samsung due to Android software:  https://www.google.com/search?q=samsung+error+16&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

 

Ensure that nothing is plugged into the system via the USB ports.

Force a reboot at least 3 times - you're trying to get into the repair functions (if using Win8 or higher)

If unable to get into Windows, can you boot from a bootable disk (if using Win7)?

Have you tried removing the battery and the power cord -then holding down the power button for 30 seconds?

Then put the battery and the power cord back and attempt to start

If that doesn't work, then I'd suggest that you post over in the hardware forums for some more expert advice:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/

If you installed Android, most likely you messed up your boot loader. Were you trying to dual boot Android with Windows 8? There is an error 16 that is grub related, grub being the linux boot loader. Android is based on the linux kernel. Error 16 in linux means Inconsistent filesystem structure.

 

I think your best bet would be to recover all your personal data and do a clean install of Windows 8.1. If your computer came with 8 then your key is embedded in firmware. The OS will automatically activate.

 

Edit: You may want to ask in the linux forum. They may be able to help recovering the grub boot loader. There is a Boot Repair disk you can download and boot. It will try and automatically repair your boot loader but I am not sure it would work if your error 16 is a problem with the filesystem.

 

And you have the problem of your HDD being GPT. That complicates matters further for recovery.
