    You have a Samsung with Windows 8 pre-installed is my opinion and the computer has what is known as a UEFI - (BIOS) system
    That boots from a file on the hard drive in a partition created when the O/S was installed and in which are the files to boot to Windows

    Try both Windows boot manager, there should only be ONE, it has the indications at the moment, although it may be other causes, of someone changing settings and trying to boot from a DVD etc.

    It would help if you could post the full model of the Samsung, and indeed any details in respect of any attempted boots, installations , changes, use of registry cleaners, boosters etc., BEFORE this problem arose.

    Was it by chance left powered on, on battery only and the battery failed, whilst it was running, if so it may be a corruption of files caused whilst updates were being installed. Not a likely cause , but possible.

    Finally HOW OLD is the Samsung please
