i have a new samsung laptop running windows 7 64bit.when i first set it up the 1tb hard drive partitioned. that was ok, everything worked fine. a couple of days later i couldn't start windows, no idea why. as it was new and not a lot of files on it yet i reset it to when i first recieved it. now the hard drive shows 2 partitions ,one of 360gb and one of 54mb. how do i get back to 1tb of hard drive?

You can do it two ways - Windows 7 has its own built in Disk Management Partition Tool or you can use a 3rd party Free download (EaseUs) - this link provides instructions for both - enter link description here

Should have added that the 54MB probably contains your factory restore files but that should show up as a partition and is normally protected.
