White Dots on Black BG, but still have audio and operating system

I was playing a game and after I was done playing, mind you not a new game, turned it back on and got moving white dots in a diagonal direction on a black BG. I tried unplugging the AV cord from the system and the TV still the same. Tried new cables still the same. Tried resetting the display settings by hitting the guide button and holding the Y button and R Trigger, still the same. What is causing this problem. I still have the operating system and audio b/c cause I can hear it go through the menus and hitting the A select button audio and can still shutdown the console by holding the guide button and hitting up twice and then the A select button. Video Card problem?

if under warranty send it back as soon as possible, if not i wrapped mine in a towel so it overheats after 10-15 minutes then the system red lights and resets everything, turn off then leave to cool and turn back on, yea i was suprised when it worked to i thought someone was takin the wet when they told me how to fix it, this option will make it work again but i strongly advise if under warranty that you get it sorted by microsoft

Garmin 1100lm locked in press dot game?

Your unit is in calibration mode. There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.
Thanks for using FixYa

Instructions as to HOW TO PLAY DRAUGHTS

  • Set up your pieces on a black-and-white checkered game board with 64 squares of each color. Each player should set their 12 pieces on the 12 black squares closest to them on opposite sides of the game board.Decide who goes first by tossing a coin.Move a game piece forward diagonally along the black squares if you are the first player. You may move only one square at a time per turn and you must go forward on the board.

  • Take your opponent's game piece by jumping over it forward diagonally along the black squares if your opponent has one of his game pieces adjacent to yours and there is a vacant space beyond your opponent's piece. You may take more than one jump if you land on a space where you are able to jump another of your opponent's game pieces

  • Have a game piece crowned as a "king" if you reach the far edge of the board closest to your opponent. Your opponent must place one of the game pieces he has captured from you on top of your king piece to distinguish it from your other pieces. Your king is now allowed to move diagonally forward or backward instead of just forward.Win the game by capturing all of your opponent's game pieces,Hope this helps :D

    Black screen white dots

    This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

    Hope this helps.

    I need written instructions for EA Sports MVP Baseball for Gamecu

    hope these are the right ones

    MVP Baseball 2005

    Z Button Z + A Button = Square to Bunt (release to pull back)
    A Button Swing

    Control Pad Steal / Choose base destination (press toward base you are trying to steal)
    Slide Refer to EA SPORTS Big Play Control in Gameplay below.
    C Stick Left/Right = Increase/decrease leadoff.
    X Button Control runner at 1st
    B Button Control runner at 3rd
    Y Button Control runner at 2nd
    L Button Advance/stop all runners
    Z Button Advance/stop all runners
    R Button Retreat runner
    Control Stick Choose pitch location.
    A Button Throw a pitch
    X Button Throw a pitch
    B Button Throw a pitch
    Y Button Throw a pitch
    White Button (press and hold) + Directional Pad Up/Down (Left/Right to toggle between bullpens and dugouts) = View Bullpen/Dugout menu
    R Button Throw a pitch
    L Button + X, B or Y = Pickoff attempt. L + A = Pitchout. L + Control Pad Down = Intentionally hit the batter. L + Control Pad Up = Intentionally walk a batter.
    Z Button (Hold) + Control Pad Up/Down = Choose infield/outfield alignment (before pitch). Left/Right to choose a category. Z Button (hold) + C Stick Left/Right = View pitch history, to toggle at bats. Z Button + Control Pad Up/Down = View Bullpen/Dugout menu (Left/Right to toggle between bullpens and dugouts).

    Control Stick Move fielder
    C Stick EA SPORTS Big Play Control
    A Button Throw to home (press and hold to power up, release to throw)
    X Button Throw to 1st (press and hold to power up, release to throw)
    B Button Throw to 3rd (press and hold to power up, release to throw)
    Y Button Throw to 2nd (press and hold to power up, release to throw)
    R Button Throw to the cut-off man



    The Strike zone is divided into nine colored squares. Red squares mark the batter's hot zones. Blue squares are the batter's cold zones. Clear squares are neutral for the batter.

    Take unprecedented control at the plate by moving the Control Stick during your swing.

    -The results of your swing depend on your timing, the location of the pitch, and the direction you move the Control Stick.
    -For the best results, move the Control Stick towards the location of the pitch.
    -To hit the ball in the air, move the Control Stick Diagonal Up-Left / Up / Diagonal Up-Right while swinging. This increases the chances of hitting a fly ball, but also increases your chances of missing the ball if the pitch isn't up in the zone.
    -To hit the ball on the ground, move the Control Stick Diagonal Left-Down / Down / Diagonal Right-Down while swinging. Keep in mind that high pitches are very difficult to hit on the ground.
    -To hit the ball to the left, move the Control Stick Diagonal Left- Down / Left / Diagonal Up-Left while swinging. For the best results, use this when the pitch is coming in on the left side of the plate.
    -To hit the ball to the right, move the Control Stick Diagonal Right-Down / Right / Diagonal Up-Right while swinging. For the best results, use this when the pitch is coming in on the right side of the plate.


    1. Press and hold the button that corresponds to the pitch you want to throw. The bar inside the pitch meter begins moving.
    2. Release the pitch button when the bar reaches the end of the pitch meter. The closer your release point is to the end of the meter, the more effective the pitch is.
    3. Press the pitch button again when the bar is within the green accuracy zone near the beginning of the pitch cycle to determine the pitch's accuracy.
    -The effect of a bad pitch depends on the type of pitch. For example, ineffective fastballs are slower than normal, and less effective breaking pitches are flatter.
    -If a pitcher misses the green accuracy zone by a considerable amount, an indicator (red for hot zone, blue for cold zone, yellow for ball, white for neutral) appears to tip off the batter to the location of the pitch.


    Your pitcher's pitch selection appears on-screen. Not all pitchers have the same arsenal of pitches. A pitcher's four-seam fastball is always assigned to A Button. The remaining pitches are assigned to X, B, Y and R Button (though not all pitchers have five pitches).


    -If you power up the throw into the red zone, you throw harder, but less accurately, which could result in an error.
    -If you select to throw to either a base or the cut-off man before the ball arrives, the fielder begins his throw immediately upon receiving the ball.

    NOTE: The CPU automatically adjusts your defensive alignment based on the situation. However, you can override this by choosing the infield and outfield alignments yourself.


    Using the all-new EA SPORTS Big Play Control, you can climb the fence to rob home runs, make spectacular diving catches, slide around tags, and more.


    - To dive or stretch for a ball just out of your reach, move the C Stick Left/Right toward the ball.
    -To climb the wall to snag a would-be home run or jump for a ball over your head, move the C Stick Up.
    -To make a sliding catch, move the C Stick Down as the ball approaches.

    Timing is the key to a perfect slide. Use EA SPORTS Big Play Control to create havoc on the base paths.

    C Stick:
    Up = Head-first slide
    Diagonal Up-Left/Up-Right = Head-first slide to the left/right side of the bag
    Down = Pop-up slide
    Diagonal Down-Right/Down-Left = Hook slide to the right/left side of the bag
    Up = Dislodge ball from catcher.
