My personal laptop has gone a bit awry. Receive the following when trying to start after a system crash, no new hard ware fitted, computer left on with screen off, had to hard reboot as screen control would not work. I have had a flickering screen so would like to know if it will be the invertor which I have been told would be easy to cahnge.

Samsung R710, 2009, running Centrino2, Vista. On start up, req Boot password, truecrypt, passes that then the screen has the sliding green line above Microsoft Corp, this continues for about 3 minutes, then there is a flash of BSOD, then the next boot asks as there was a start up fault do you wish to run recovery or start normally. normally just loops again, start up recovery goes into samsung recovery tool, but fails with the following message. "unable to locate x:WinClon\Manager1.exe" and just powers down after ok button pressed. Help!

Thanks Stan

I would put the dive into a caddy and extract the data to another source

and fit a new drive

Do you have a windows DVD to install from?

Yep, Vista DVD. Will take the laptop to the local pc shop. Not PC World! Will get another HDD and re-install OS Will update on here what happens next.

Cheers for now. Stan

Thanks all.

HDD failed.

New larger HDD fitted, upgraded to Win7 and working fine, however the old HDD fails, asks me to re-formatt. I know there are loads of files/programmes on it, so how do I recover the data. My PC can see the two partitions but that is all.
