Viet - Computer Tech :

Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com.

Viet - Computer Tech :

Is this a new computer?

Viet - Computer Tech :

Even though this is a new computer, windows is corrupted (or there could be hard drive issue), and the recovery option did not work either.

Viet - Computer Tech :

Did you burn the windows / recovery disk when the computer was working?

Viet - Computer Tech :

Unfortunately, since the F4 recovery option did not work, then you will need the windows / recovery disk. But since this is a new computer, you can return/exchange it, and/or contact Samsung to fix if needed:
