Also, this is a samsung laptop, correct?
You should have it the system off, hit the power button and then hit f4 to do the area you want to, thats assuming the harddrive is not bad. I'm still trying to reach you by phone.
f4 is for recovery, as in to completely reformat the system, you would hit f4 after starting the computer. F8 is for different options in the operating system.
what happens when you hit f8? does it give you a list such as Start windows normally, safe mode etc?
understood, when you DO hit f8, what happens?
Ok, can you try and select safe mode and tell me what happens please?
just restart it normally please
It should into windows normally now.
Hey there, you realize i don't live on this site right? I sleep, eat and do normal things. You still have not said what you want to do with f3, f3 does nothing.....were you able to get into windows last night? Or are you still wanting to format?
I am not sure why your system is not responding to f4 on boot up, thats what you were wanting to do is erase everything and start over.
