Hi all, Hving problems with my laptop. I had an issue not so long ago where, upon startup, the pc would be very slow and wouldnt load up at all. I tried the samsung recovery option which took a very long time, but then crashed and turned off. I took it to my works IT guy to have a look at, but he couldnt work out exactly what it was. Now here is the message it displays upon start up: "Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer. this error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external usb drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or cd rom drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer" as far as i can see, everything is connected as it should be. Does any one have any knowledge of this problem or any tips on how to diagnose what it is more accurately please? Thanks a lot.
