Hi all!


I've recently encountered a problem with my laptop. I'm now using a Samsung laptop that I bought in Apr 2012. Recently, my laptop has been getting more and more slow, it lags and hangs more frequently. Just yesterday, 08/07/13, my laptop is unable to boot up. It just hangs at the Samsung logo and no matter what I have pressed, it just does not startup. Plus it gets hot easily when I switched on it yesterday night.


I have a lot of important school assignments that I have to hand in. And most importantly, I did not backup my data. Therefore, I did not dare to reformat. What can I do??? I really need help!!! Please!!! Anyone???


I need to retrieve my data asap. Can anyone help??


Sorry for any inconvenience caused.


Thank you.


Best regards,

boot from bootable usb or CD/DVD that can browse to important files and copy (save) them if you need them right away. then you can access them on a working system.

or take the hardrive out and connect it to another computer through a usb adapter and browse to important files and save for use elsewhere.

fixing the samsung will be time consuming if you want to do it yourself since there is so much to learn.
