Hello,
i have a samsung np-r540 yesterday i turned it on and it stuck on the windows logo then i forced it to shut down by holding the power button after that i tried re powering it, the power button lighted up blue (showing that its on) but nothing else happened except the spinning radiator. i have tried resetting ram, removing all charge but nothing is working what can i do?

I agree with all except draining the flea by holding power down, doesn't require 2 whole minutes although doesn't hurt. I would say 30seconds should be fine.

connect as: mass storage, webcam, com port
but the laptop still remains blank with nothing else working except a blue light on the power button and a charging led indicator

Hi :) 

As an example my shops charge 1/2 hours labour for diagnosis (£27.50)

i just managed to repair it, the laptop needed a ram resetting but not just any ram resetting.the laptop had one ram so i had to find another ram and reseated both ram in the modules after that i powered it and made a bios reset as well then i shut it down removed the other ram and powered it again...and it worked.
thanks for all the help.
