The power on password is stored on an EEPROM chip. There are no backdoor passwords. There is a hack but you need to have some electronic skills and you need to pull the laptop apart.

I have a R51 that when it boots up it only shows a white to gray shade screen


If it is at all possible, connect an external monitor to the computer. All laptops should have a port for an external monitor. If the external monitor works then you screen is most likely bad and needs to be replaced. If the external monitor does not work then your motherboard is probably bad.

This indicates a possible memory problem. Reseat the RAM modules and boot up, if OK then the laptop is OK.
If not then :-
If you have two RAM modules, remove both and insert one and boot up, if it is OK then repeat with the other one - this will determine which memory module is faulty.
