005.jpg - there appears to no change, boot menu exactly the same with new CD inserted

007.jpg - this photo was taken from another laptop, it's just the program on the CD

Many thanks

Ok, on your working PC, install partition wizard and run it. Once it is open, find the bootable media button (I am not home to provide any more detail). Insert a blank CD and make the media. Put the media in non-booting one and restart, press any key if it asks to to boot from CD. Select defaults if being asked.

Once the program loads, take a photo of the screen (try not to shake it, make sure text is readable).

I have installed partition wizard on my good Samsung, but sorry I do not understand how to make media as I have no experience of this tool and somewhat nervous as I do not wish to damage my daughters laptop

The one thing I did attempt was to select the Bootable CD option from partition wizard it took me to this website:

Bootable Partition Manger | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition

I downloaded the software(pwfree9.iso) from this website on to a CD and inserted the CD into my broken laptop

Unfortunately no progress, albeit I was not sure what I was doing

Thanks again

Mega Progress, thank you so much..........!!!!!

Please see how..

Which is the best way forward now, rather than waste more of your time, shall I learn this program via Youtube

Or is there a simple way forward in partition wizard to setup my laptop..

Thank you so much once again..

Don't get alarmed just yet (yours doesn't say read only) but see How to Fix external HDD bad disk, unallocated, not initialize

Download link in Jumanji's post, select the Windows DOS version, and follow the instructions to make it bootable. Then run an extended test on the drive. If it makes it, then try:
- Select the drive in Partition Wizard and start the Partition Recovery wizard, whole disk, quick scan
- See if your files/folders will show up, double click the partitions (that may show up after scan) and take a photo of them and post here, quit out of the wizard.

I am afraid that your drive for all practical purposes is dead.

You may have to replace the drive and reinstall the OS. If you have the recovery disks supplied by Samsung or you had made the recovery disks yourself as per insructions in the laptop manual, you may use those disks to reinstall the original OS on the new HDD. If not contact Samsung Tech. Support for Recovery Disks.

GokAy in his last post has advised you to check that HDD with the HDD manufacturer's Diagnostic/Repair Utility. Of course you have to download the DOS version and make a bootable CD with it to run.

Windows 7

Hi Guys,

I am now positive I am fighting a lost cause with my laptop,the cost of a refurbished hard drive is approximately $60, one month guarantee,a new replacement from Samsung is approximately $270. You may also be aware Samsung have droppedout of the laptop market

I have taken the decision to purchase a new laptop

My goal on joining this forum was to hopefully fix my harddrive and assist future members with similar problems, unfortunately it has notbeen achieved

I wish to personally thank GoKay for his assistance, he hasmade a great effort to help me

Sorry, it turned out to be like this. However, I feel a new laptop is overkill :)

You just need this (250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD) - SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E250B/AM 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) -
(doesn't need to be from Newegg of course) Many do use Evo's and Pro's over here and I am sure all will vouch for them. I have the 512GB Pro by the way.

Best thing you can do, and do consider this even if you get a new laptop!
