    Anyone here have any idea how to remove the bezel around the LCD screen? Not sure if it just clips on, or is glued on. I am having an issue with the backlight, sometimes it does not turn on and if I torque the screen it comes back on so must be a loose connection that would hopefully be an easy fix, don't want to jack up the bezel though. Would prefer not to have to send in for warranty repair if I don't have to.

    This thread about Linux on a Series 7 may help.

    Also, you might want to give Linux Mint a try...

    I upgraded to a Samsung 256 SSD and am having some problems. I would appreciate any help.


    Using Samsung's Recovery Solution, I backed up the System Software (drivers and applications). I did a fresh install of Windows 7 using the included System Recovery Media disc and then re-installed the drivers and applications.

    I had changed the boot priority to the CD drive so I could do the fresh install and wanted to change it back. When I press F2 I can't access the BIOS, nor can I access Samsung Recovery Solution when pressing F4.

    I can't re-install Samsung Recovery Solution as it appears I've lost the recovery partition.

    Lastly, according to system info, I only have 4 GB of memory. Where's the other 8 GB?

    How do I --

    1. Get the recovery partition back?
    2. Access BIOS?
    3. Find the other 4 GB of memory?

    Thank you!

    1. Try EASEUS partition recovery. This will work unless you formatted it, in which case it's gone and I don't believe you can get it back.

    Edit: Oh I forgot about the SSD. If you want the recovery partition from the HDD to reside on your SSD, you will need to clone the disk. Unless you'll be using the HDD in an external, I'd forget about having the recovery partition on the SSD and install the regular version of Windows 7 Home Premium x64
    You want http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso 2147483647 X17-58997.iso Windows 7 Home Premium x64 English
    - Windows 7 Digital River direct links: Multiple Languages; X86 & X64 - Page 60


    2. Power down then try "semi-spamming" F2 if you're long pressing

    Edit2: BTW, if you push F10 during boot up, it will allow you to select which disk to boot from.

    3. Download and run HWiNFO64, go to motherboard > SMBIOS DMI > Memory Devices then check the first and third Memory Device. The first will be the 4GB soldered to the board and may or may not be an Elpida stick like mine. The third will be the 8GB stick you replaced the 4GB with.

    Also, can you link the 8GB stick you purchased?

    Tried cloning, but it wouldn't work. Did clean install.

    Downloaded BIOS and F2 works. Samsung's website, IMO, doesn't have the best update section. I'm use to Toshiba's site where they call a BIOS a BIOS, not Firmware.

    3. Download and run HWiNFO64, go to motherboard > SMBIOS DMI > Memory Devices then check the first and third Memory Device. The first will be the 4GB soldered to the board and may or may not be an Elpida stick like mine. The third will be the 8GB stick you replaced the 4GB with.

    I didn't buy an 8 GB stick. The laptop comes with a total of 8 GB of memory. One soldered on the motherboard and the other you can replace. I'm just wondering why it only shows 4 GB instead of 8 GB.
