Questions & Answers
My laptop keeps randomly shutting off.
Try turning it off, then upside down and checking the ventilation ports. My Toshiba will do the same over time if I do not reguraly clean the vents. Also check to see if your fan is working. The worst enemy of most laptops is heat generated but not expelled. Insure that you have adequate ventilation while using it.

My Laptop won't fully start/blacks out/won't recover
You are lucky that this issue is operating system based from what it seems, try to work the recovery option, let it be that way for hours. It will move at some point.
Did you have a AV installed? If not it is crucial to have an anti-virus software installed on PC.
If all the efforts appear fruitless, contact Samsung; it could be a hardware issue as well... although they are less frequently observed.

After adding ddr3 to my samsung rv511 its not starting
Hi!I just got my Samsung RV511 laptop up and running with OS X 10.6.8.The specs of my laptop:Intel HM55 Sandy BridgeIntel Core i3 2.53 GHz4 GB DDR3Nvidia Geforce 315M 512MBCurrently I've got ethernet, QE/CI, Bluetooth, Integrated Webcam, Trackpad with 2 finger scrolling, keyboard, Sound and HDMI with Audio working.For people who want to try it, this is how i installed it.
Multi Beast:EasyBeast InstallSystem UtilitiesDrivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Audio -> Universal -> VoodooHDA 0.2.1 (Newer version WON'T work)Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Miscellaneous -> VoodooPS/2 ControllerDrivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Miscellaneous -> VoodooPS/2 TrackpadDrivers & Bootloaders -> Kext & Enablers -> Network -> Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Ether...
- Change the ACHI settings in bios to "Manual" and "Enabled", as having it on auto won't work.
- Install OSX using iBoot
- Update to 10.6.8 using the Combo Update
- Install MultiBeast, List of drivers to select below
Some issues when i installed, with the fix:After entering sleepmode, system won't boot "Still waiting for root device"After i've entered sleep mode and forced shutdown the computer, the BIOS settings are reverted to ACHI auto. Change it back to Manual and Auto. The sleepfile is still laying somewhere not making it to boot, use the boot flag Wake=n to get it back running.Can't boot using iBoot after the first boot.Boot using the parameters -x -v and it should boot up fine.
Things that needs to be fixed:However, the "tapping" of the trackpad is not working, so i need to press the button to click on a link, open a program etc.The F5 key is not working on the keyboard, but the F12 for Dashboard and the special FN keys are indeed working.Sleep is not working at all, the screen gets black and then im stuck.Wireless is not working either, tried adding the IO80211Family kext but when i copy it to the extensions folder, i get an error message saying that the kexts we're not installed successfully.I have details from CPU-ID Cpu-z from Windows 7 which should tell the PCI-ID etc. Of the Wireless card, however i can't really find the maker and model of my wireless card.It seems like they got it with 3 different types of Wireless cards. This is from the driver download section from Samsung:Wireless LAN,BROADCOM (Driver) (ver.220.127.116.11)Wireless LAN,ATHEROS (Driver) (ver.18.104.22.1689)Wireless LAN,INTEL (Driver) (ver.22.214.171.124)Is there any way to figure out the make/model from the cpu-z specs?Any help would be really appreciated!
