Hi my son has just bought his Samsung NC10 to me as its not booting up.
Getting the Samsung screen up is 1-10 times

When the Samsung screen comes up it stops loading. I hit F4 for recovery and that did nothing after waiting ages there was no movement or flickering of the HD

I have removed the ram HD and replaced it to make sure its seated.
The HD seems to be spinning but the Fan is not.

After disconnecting the above items I see the wireless connection light is not lit.

As it's a newly bought netbook don't do anything to it but contact the seller as it will be under warranty.

Hi rdave13 my mistake (brought) not bought its about 18 months old.

Sorry just re-read your post. Still if it is still under warranty then same advice stands.
How do you know the fan is not spinning?

I am typing this on the same Netbook. Try tapping F5 right after you press the start button. If you can get to Safe Mode. Try running System Restore to a old date

Taken the back off it.
I assumed I the fan would start up when the NC10 was powered up.

Also you need the DVD restore Disc and External Optical drive to do a restore

OK woodchip just going to put it back together first.

Don't think it as a Fan. Never heard one on my Netbook

I have changed the Ram back to its old 1GB Ram as I upgraded to two soon after it was bought.

The fan powers up when needed. If you started the Netbook with the back off then if the cpu is cool enough for a few minutes then it won't start. I'd replace the casing and take heed of woodchip's advice as he owns the same netbook. Good luck.
