Preferred Solution: Samsung boosts SSD 850 Evo and 850 Pro to 2TB capacity

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

Hi I've stummbled across something very strange when I've just tried to install my samsung F3 drive in my new computer with windows 7 64-bit installed. It used to be fine and worked in my old windows xp 64-bit machine but in this it says its a drive of 31MB when it should be 1TB. how can that be I formated as it said RAW originally to NTFS, when I click properties in disk management and go to volumes tab it tells me its a Master Boot record partition stle, what does this mean. it says the capacity is 31MB. how can this be, anyone know, but as I say the drive worked fine before.

Answer:Samsung F3 1TB drive saying its capacity is 31MB,

Check the Partitions on the drive using click here and create your own partition(s).

Question: Speed Boosts

I am currently running Road Runner at 10mbps and I am looking for way to increase the speed.
I have used Dr ping ( a program that allows you to tweak registry items such as MTU and RWIN but im not sure if im doing it right. For the program to work you need to know the connection speed in Kilo bits per second, no one at the road runner tech support knows what that means. Question #1 10mbps = ?kbps

I also came across a patch on this forum that allowed you increase the number of incoming TCP IP connections from 50 to a 100, i was pretty drunk that night and im not sure where i found it. If someone could show me the light, that would be great.

also any other reccomendation would be greatly accepted
thank you for your input

I previously had no problems with the website WWW.marketwatch.com. However, after I fixed my trojan horse problem with the help of a security analyst here, I have been having problems with that website when I am using IE7 (No problems when using Firefox though). If you refer to the first screenshot I took, I should be able to get an automatically generated list the moment I type in the ticker of a certain stock. Now, I am unable to do that. I am also having problems seeing the European and Asian indices graphs (if you see the 2nd screenshot you'd know where it is cos I marked it with a red arrow).
I installed IE-Spyad and the MVPS HOSTS file on top of updating my Java to Java update 13.

On a separate note, after doing all these, I find that my browser (more so for firefox) takes forever to open, and it takes like a gazillion years for Java applications to run when it ran perfectly ok without the update....I'd gladly prefer thigns to run faster!!! Is there anyway to fix these problems I am encoutnering?

Hello guys,
i'm having troubles on my old PC with win XP SP3. After log on it becomes very slow and loud, i'va spotted that a process named services.exe takes all the memory slowly and than it releases it slowly after 10 mins or so. I tried some mallware removal programs, but when i'm logged on it allows me to start them just once, then they are blocked and i can't run them any more. I used mallwarebytes in safe mode and it always find two backdoor bugs in flash memory, which are removed, but they reappear after normal log on. In the end i tried with combofix, but i can't read its log. Im sure you are experts doing this, so please see it below. I need to live with this PC for a couple of months, so i would be glad if you help me solve my problem, if there is any left of course. There is also my hijackthis log below combofix's log, created before combofix was aplied.

Ok, so I bought my Yoga 910 (4k/i7/16gb/512ssd) just a few days ago and, besides the fan noise (which I am currently working on) as well as recently discovering the issue I am about to discuss, I absolutely LOVE this machine! It is a workhorse and the build quality is amazing. That's saying a lot coming from a previous Mac user... Anyway, I was looking around today while trying to get the fan issue resolved and I noticed that the Full Charge Capacity (FCC) of the battery is only 75410mwh, while the actual Designed Capacity is meant to be 78000mwh. It is about a 4% performance decrease basically right out of the box, is that normal? I only ask because I originally bought the FHD/i7/8gb/256ssd version, before exchanging it for the upgraded unit due to liking it so much, and noticed that the FCC on the original one was actually 80102mwh, quite a bit higher than the designed capacity. Not sure if there is a setting preventing the PC to charge to the full amount or what? Maybe I just got a battery with lower ratings? Any help would be MUCH apppreciated!

I have an X230 with 6 cell battery. The OS is Windows 8. I've noted that the design capacity and full charge capacity are both lower with 9 cycle counts. The design capacity is 57720mWh and the full charge capacity is 57420mWh while these two figures should be 62160mWh for the new battery. I know that the full charge capacity will be reduced after use while I have two questions: 1. Considering there are only 9 charging cycle, now the figure are too low for the full cycle charge. It means 7.6% loss after 9 cycle charge. It is so ridiculous. 2. Why the design capacity is reduced? Is it should not be changed, right? I noticed a knowledge base lead abt the design capacity. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/Design-Capacity-appears-to-be-changing-on-m... While my OS is Windows 8, there is no Power Manager, so I can not understand the explanation exactly and do not know how to recovery the battery. Pls kindly check my questions and help me to figure it out, thanks!

Answer:Battery design capacity and full charge capacity are lower

I could think of one reason why it might be like that. Lenovo might have artificially limited the max full capacity of the battery in the batterypack firmware (it was suprising to me that battery also has its own firmware!) so that there is never a overcharge on one of the cells inside the battery pack. I've seen this in a Toshiba Portege R835 laptop too. It's nearly impossible to have exact same capacity for each cells (called cell balancing), so when you try to charge a batterypack with 95% charge all the way up to 100%, one cell might already have reached its 100% (this is the inferior cell) while one cell is only at 90% (this is the superior cell). The batterypack will try to keep charging all the cells resulting in overcharge for the inferior cell and degrade it even more quickly. By limiting the maximum capacity to less than 100%, it helps prolong the battery life, and similar effect can also be achieved using using the PowerManager tool in Windows 7 by restricting the charge threshold (configure the setting so it stops charging at 90% for example). I don't know why they don't create a Windows 8 version though. So in Windows 8 what I do is add a registry key which limits the max charge capacity. This needs to be done only once, but if you ever see it behaving differently, then you could re-add the registry key and it should work again.  Below is a .reg file that I use to set the battery charge only starts at 70% and stop at 90%. Windows Registry...

Is my battery in really good or need a change.Can someone please help me out.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:W530 full charge capacity is much less than design capacity

"Good" means it is unlikely to completely fail very soon. The electronics indicate that the cells are all working. However, battery cells have a limited life and they slowly deteriorate as they are used and recharged over and over. It is just wearing out. The reset is unlikely to help. The "fix" is to replace it. Be sure you get one that is designed for the T430/T530/W530. The earlier ones (T420, etc.) are the same size, but they won't work. Avoid aftermarket ones. I think they are junk.

Samsung updated my Tab2 7 and now Adobe Flash which i had installed and working previously will not play web downloads. I have updated to the latest Flash player for Android from version 11.1.115.36 to 11.1.115.69 but this has made no difference. I have also checked for solutions on web and installed several browser plugins suggested but these don't seem to work. Unfortunately I use my Tab for a study course which has video content which I now cannot use. Has anybody else had this problem and if so found a solution?

Answer:Samsung Tab2 Flash player stopped working after samsung software update

I don't use Android any more but my understanding is that Flash is no longer supported by Android. Your course designers should be moving away from Flash. I assume from your post that you have tried this installation. If that doesn't work then I'm sorry but I'm stuck. If the course is viewed using the browser then you could try Puffin browser see Flash on Android

Problems on initializing Samsung 80GB with Samsung's Disk Manager: Ontrack(tm)

Hi!

There is some problem on my 80gb Samsung HD. The situation is this:

I have had an old computer which have an ancient motherboard.. because of the limitations of motherboard it was initializing Hd as 8gb.. I installed Samsung's Disk Manager program named Ontrack. It does something with the MBR to make the 8gb initialized HD as 80gb! When you're in bios setup, it says your samsung is 8gb but when you reset and wait for the system disk error message Ontrack activates and then your hd is 80 gb, you can install OS after that.

Here is the problem: I bought a new computer whose motherboard to initialize my 80GB hd as 80GB also, but things didn't happen like that. On bios setup it says my HD is 33gb.

I plugged the HD to my other computer and its partition magic 8 says "33gb BAD" also..

A modified MBR by a program (ontrack) can fool bios setup? if so, can i use XP CDs system recovery console with fixmbr command? ?f it is not how can i make my hd back to normal (not for old motherboards, initialized as 80GB)??

New motherboard is MSI RS482M2-IL and because of this problem I cannot enable S.M.A.R.T. feature. I need help and thanks from now on!
 

Answer:Problems on initializing Samsung 80GB with Samsung's Disk Manager: Ontack(tm)

So I've done a little homework and have decided to purchase the new Samsung 128GB SSD and upgrade the 64GB SSD currently on my x300.  I want to image the existing hard drive and copy it in totality to the new hard drive via either Rescue and Recovery or Windows Vista Complete PC Backup (preferably the latter), then swap the drives to restore as I run a ton of application software and it takes me days to get everything installed and configured. With R&R I can't get that pig to run either under Windows or at boot from theThinkVantage button, always getting "Unable to copy file" error messages with "Access is denied." Windows Vista Complete PC Backup blows chunks with "Windows could not find backup devices on your computer.  The following information might explain why this problem occurred:  Catastrophic failure (0x80000FFFF) Please close the backup application and try again." I have an external Western Digital 750GB My Book USB with plenty of space and have successfully created an R&R startup disc.  If things get ugly I'm begrudgingly okay with re-installing all my apps (Office, Rational Application Developer, MS Visual Studio, SQL Server, etc., etc., etc.), but I'd rather not if I dont' have to and I DON'T want to lose the OEM install of Vista on the HD as I do not have my own media for that, though I do have a copy of the SWTOOLS directory off the root of the SSD for everything else, plus all my application software. Any advice appre...

(3) Just wanted to point out that Samsung Magician supports "rapid mode" for one SSD (even if more than one SSD is present).  And it does not support "rapid mode" for NVMe.  But that means it could support "rapid mode" for the 850 Pro in my machine, and in fact I have enabled "rapid mode" for my 850 Pro.
 
Rapid mode utilizes unused and thus available RAM in the machine as a cache for the SSD, improving benchmark numbers dramatically.
 
Here are the numbers for my 850 Pro with "rapid mode" enabled.

I have a Samsung SSD that I recently formatted and installed Windows 7 64 bit on. I tried to use Samsung Magician software but it tells me that "Magician cannot communicate with the below Samsung SSD. Please check with other compatible storage drivers and try again. 1. Samsung SSD 840 EVO (etc)"

Upon some investigation, it appears this is because the SSD is listed as SCSI in device manager. I was wondering if there were any way to fix this so that the Samsung Magician software can communicate with the SSD
 

Answer:Samsung SSD listed as SCSI; Samsung Magician not working

HI

What Motherboard make and model are you using and what controller do you have the SSD plugged into as if its the Marvell (JMicron ones can also cause this) controller then that maybe your issue as at times the Marvell controller will list in Windows a SATA drive as SCSI, pita!!

So if you can swap the SSD into a Intel controller then that should fix the issue, just make sure that the drive is listed in the BIOS and as 1st boot device.

Are you running in the BIOS RAID Mode and if so that could also be a source of the issue. Really need to be if not running RAID to be in ACHI mode in the BIOS.

... so I bought a Samsung EVO VNAND 500Gb.... (twice the capacity) and thought an easy clone was in store....

(I also have some additional drives I have just disconnected for the Clone op [as the Samsung clone software was being stupid [trying to get me to clone my documents drive to my new SSD]). With or without the other drives connected, it FAILS, FAILS, FAILS.

So; when I try to clone, It gets to about 33% cloned, and then fails.
Time after time.

Recent ERROR MESSAGE is:- "Failed to retrieve source information 205500(0322bc)"

I tried to clone the SSD to SSD on a CLONE machine/Box. A FAIL
I tried to clone using Macrium Reflect. A FAIL
I tried to clone using EASEUS. A FAIL.
I tried them all a few times including the SAMSUNG CLONE Software.
FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a problem with the 250Gb SSD I don`t know about (I am using this PC with it in now)...

Or will a SAMSUNG EVO not clone to a SAMSUNG VNAND ?

Do I have to try everything including disabling features such as RAPID MODE? And Disable Performance and everything?

After Samsung Recovery has loaded, I quit it and the computer shut off. I turned it on again and now it doesn't make it to the GRUB, it shows the Samsung logo, then "boot from ahci cd-rom", and then it reboots and shows the samsung logo again.

I quite fancy one of these BDD5500s as it states that you can get BBC I-player and others through it. However it says that it's wifi ready and that you can buy a wifi dongle for about £45. With Sky my free broadband only allows me 2gbs of download a month which is normally ok for me but -player etc., uses up too much so I don't want to use my Sky broadband wifi for this player.
I don't really understand how a Samsung wifi dongle works as far as subscriptions are concerned. Is a one off purchase sufficient or is there a monthly subscription required to some provider?
Thirdly does a 3d blue ray player work fine with an ordinary HD Samsung TV?

Answer:samsung tv and samsung bdd5500 smart hub player

A wifi dongle gets its data from a wireless network. You have to pay at some sites eg hotels to get access to their network. In the home it would be free. I don't think that there would be a subscription otherwise. But I note your download limit and I think that it would be using your Sky broadband.
No idea about the 3D. Suggest you enquire in a showroom.
ps 3G dongles have a subscription.

Hello Friends.  I successfully installed a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD as a boot drive just fine.  However, it looks like the Windows 10 NVME driver is being used in place of the Samsung NVME driver.  I saw this post here where it says: "Windows is indicating it is using the NVMe driver for this drive." https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Envy-750se-capable-of-M-2-NVMe-... However I do not know how to determine this myself.  I am using a utility called "AIDA64 Extreme" and it's telling me the driver provider for the 950 is Micrososft and the driver version is 10.0.14393.0.  So, how do I get the 950 to use the Samsung driver instead?  Thanks for any help. 

Answer:How to tell if Samsung 950 Pro is using Samsung NVME driver ...

After installing Samsung Touch Supporter on my non-samsung PC,I get this:

"This Program only runs on a Samsung PC.
Program will terminate."

I try to use some of the software that came with the Samsung Series 7 PC.
I will not let me open the program.
I have an Archos 9 PC and would like to use it.

Can anyone make it so that I can install this software on any other PC?
Sometimes it's a simple edit,can anyone look in to this?

Software can be downloaded from the Samsung website here(it's under manuals & downloads/software):
Support - Tablet PCs XE700T1A | Samsung Tablet PCs

May you please attempt to fix Play Touch App (Software) (ver.1.0.0.33),Play Touch Luancher (Software) (ver.1.2.0.32), and Touch Supporter (Software) (ver.1.2.0.10)

Note: Play Touch Laucher says the same message as above,but still manages to open, Touch Supporter does not though

Answer:Samsung Series 7 software on non-Samsung PC.

That software is only licensed to use on the Samsung PC it came on, so I don't know why you would expect it to work on any other PC.

Samsung is also the most difficult model to get the OEM software to work after a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is entirely legal and recommended for most users of preinstalled Windows to get the best Win7 performance.

But for Samsung it's especially important to back up the Recovery Image and make a secondary Win7 backup image so that if any features are missing after Clean Reinstall and the Samsung software won't work correctly, you can set it back to factory condition.

Hi,
I have a Haswell i7 PC with windows 8.1 running great. It has a Samsung EVO 250Gb SSD (30% free space); and I bought a Samsung V-Nand 500Gb SSD to clone to (via way of a failed attempt to clone to a Crucial M550 500Gb [which ended up in my olde XP PC])....
The problem is NO MIGRATION or Clone software will allow a copy of the existing hard drive to the new hard-drives.
Every program that tests Windows & SSD`s says my SSD is in great condition; except Samsung Migration clone; which cuts out after 35% of the clone /Migration process...
I have tried disconnecting my other Drives in the PC.
I have tried disabling RAPID Mode.
I have tried disabling some Windows Hibernation features etc...
But all to no avail.
I have tried other companies CLONE software such as EaseUS & Macrium etc.. It FAILED FAILED FAILED.
What am I doing wrong; as I have a complex set of programs and links to my other drives; so a compete re-install of Windows 8/8.1 to the larger drive is not a practical option...
SAMSUNG Migration software also prevents me Migrating the current 250Gb SSD to a standard hard-drive for a back-up copy.
ALSO; I bought a Clone-Drive-Box; and that FAILED FAILED FAILED to clone (even though I pre-formatted the 500Gb V-Nand SSD).
The Samsung V-Nand is working; as I put a fresh install of Windows 8.1 on it and it ran GREAT.
So BOTH Drives run great; but I cannot clone from the smaller one.
Anything I missed?
How can I CLONE it?

Answer:HELP: Samsung SSD to Samsung SSD Cloning Error

Could it have anything to do with the Samsung EVO Regeneration software from a couple of months ago; the Samsung UPDATE to restore the performance of the Samsung EVO SSD`s ???

Hello,

My computer was always a bit slow, it didn?t bother me at first but recently it?s gotten worse.
It?s very slow even when I just watch YouTube videos and a couple of times when I had to many tabs open it gave me Bluescreen

So I checked the performance tab on the Task manager and even though I have 16GB RAM installed it only uses 2-3GB max. while the CPU usage is around 100%

I checked and my RAM is fine, its pluged in properly and gets recognized by the BIOS, I checked msconfig, I tried making the cache for physical memory bigger but it still stays the same.

I don?t know what else I can do.
I don?t want to mess with the BIOS too much out of fear I might break something while adjusting the voltage or whatever

If one you could help me that would be great

Answer:Satellite Pro M30: new HDD - What is max capacity?

Hi

As far as I know the notebook has been equipped with a IDE ATA-100 / ATA-6 HDD controller.
In this case you have to use the IDE 2.5? HDD.

I know for sure that this notebook would support 80GB HDD but usually a bigger HDD should be also possible because the controller is able to handle the LBA 48bit.
The LBA 48bit can handle HDDs bigger than 120GB.

In my opinion you could try a 120GB and also 160GB HDD should be possible?.

Question: Memory capacity

Hi!
I newly installed a set of RAM, however it does not allow utilization, I found out that it is because I am using Home Premium version of Win 7.  I learn from other source that I must use Enterprise or Ultimate, but I think that i can only find Professional
version on the market.  The question is if Professional version can utilize RAM the same size of Enterprise? Any suggestion on how I can upgrade from Home Premium to Professional or Enterprise?  Thanks.

Answer:What is the maximum capacity of my RAM and my HDD?

Maximum RAM is 16 gigs. Maximum storage is not an issue. You can install any SATA hard drive or SSD you can buy, which is within the physical size limits.  Supports 6.35-cm (2.5-in) SATA hard drives in 9.5-mm (.37-in) and 7.0-mm (.28-in) thicknesses   The max capacity exceeds the hardware available to purchase. A 500 gig SSD will be no problem at all.

I have just upgraded to windows XP from ME. Before the upgraded I had 17gb free space on my 40gb Hard disk (C:)
During the 1st atempt at installing XP the system kept crashing and would not let me log on even in safe mode, but gave an error message
(0x00000007e and VSDATANT.SYS).
I had to reinstall ME to let me get a basic system up and running to get internet access etc to find out what the error message meant.
After reloading I was able to get into XP in safe mode by using the installation CD disc in the CD drive.

I uninstalled XP which brought me back to my origional version of ME and then uninstalled Zone alarm Pro which was giving the error code.
I then reinstalled XP and it all works fine except my had drive is nearly full.
I tried to fragment drive c: but there is not enough free space to let it work.
Can any one help?

Thanks in anticipation.

Stewart

Answer:Where did my disk capacity go?

when you were installing,it would have asked if you wished to backup your previous installation
if it is running ok,you can uninstall it from add and remove
you need an update to run zone alarm in xp

Hello, i have a pc running XP with an AMD athlon 3.2 I have a Hitachi 250 gig HDD installed which is holding the operating system. The only problem is that its only being read in partitions one is 120 gig and the other is a 50 gig partition. i was wondering if there is a way to gain access to the remaining 80 gigs. (this is like having money and not being able to use it) i have been looking into converting it to a dynamic disk but am not sure if this is the answer. I am also trying to avoid having to buy a third party piece of software to do this. Any insight on dynamic disks and ways to access this remaining space would be greatly appreciated.

I'm new to burning DVDs and am having some issues with how much data they can hold. I'm using a Iomega External DVD drive. I'm not sure what model it is, but it shows up as LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1635 USB Device in my Device Manager. I'm using Philips 4.7 GB 1-16x DVD-R discs, and I have both Iomega Hotburn Pro, and UltraISO installed for burning. (I previously had Nero 7 on this machine, and it didn't really run so well.) When I use the Iomega software, I get a message that there isn't enough room on the DVD if I try to burn more than approximately 4.2 gigs. With UltraISO, I get a message that says "Error Reserving Zone for Burn" when trying to burn a 4.67 Gig DVD. (I'm trying to burn 28 rar files that total 4.67 gigs.) My question: if the DVDs say 4.7 gigs, why am I having these issues? Are there some burner settings I need to adjust? Do I have the wrong drivers installed? Is there some kind of index that takes up half a gig, and if so, can I eliminate it?
