when i turn on my laptop {samsung a10) it shiows the samsung logo then the system info but when its going to boot into windows it turns black and nothing comes up its stange.

If i put an xp disc is it will say press any key to boot from cd and then inspecting systems info then its goes blank just like when i try to boot into windows now i cant get logged in nothi9ng comes up

I tried another ctr in the laptop and its the same so it doesnt look like there is a problem with my laptop screen

any help would be great.

Can you take it to a friend with a monitor, and see if you get the same display on an attached monitor?

Ah - perhaps you did that - I thought ctr might mean CD - but I suppose on refection you may have mean CRT.

If that's correct, then it looks like you might have a problem with your graphics, or more generally that the laptop in not booting correctly.

If you boot in Safe Mode (keep pressing F8 when booting) - what happens then?

Reset graphics in BIOS or reset BIOS to default settings and retry.
