Yes, the F1 message you get is the system wanting you to go into the bios and reset the clock, You can go past that, its not critical.

I would remove the Video card and try using the onboard video ( if it has it). If it boots and you can get into windows, then try re-installing the drivers.

Since its not working, try removing anything you have in the PCI slots and booting with just the video card, if it works, than it means your system board is having port conflicts and you will most likely have to try and update the bios and chipset from the manufacturers website. try this and get back to me.

Oh, if you could, copy and past your problem as FIXYA only shows your recent reply but not the original post and i do alot of these and forget what i told you earlier.

No washing


Hi, mine was getting to this point. After cleaning the filter all went back to normal. If you have not tried it, remove the three phillips head screws on the front bottom panel. You will see a plastic piece on the right hand side. You can unscrew it with your hand (drain water into shallow cake pan). Once water stops coming out, remove filter all the way and clean the pens, pencils, change, lots of lint, etc... out and put it back in. All should work well after this. Thanks, Greg

BIG problem. PLZ help!!! :(


The Samsung YP-F1 has a reset button located under the black Samsung cover plate. It can be gently removed via a finger nail or mini flat blade screwdriver. Once plate is removed a hole labeled reset will be seen. Use something like a paper clip and press in. MP3 will power down/reset. MP3 data is also retained after reset.
