Whats your computer manufacturer? Remove all CD/DVD's and all USB devices. This usually happens when the HDD has failed. Do you still have your copy of windows 7? Can you boot into the recovery partition?

Samsung install a restore utility called the Samsung Recovery Solution which can be accessed by pressing F4 on startup.
you will lose all your files on the C: drive but it should get the system working again.

is the machine past its warranty? samsung are usually pretty good at fixing machines under warranty.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
