Screen has turned completely white. Computer turns on and off via power button, but cannot see anything except white screen!!!

Not 100% sure, but this happened to me a couple years ago, it was called something like white screen virus. Basically you need to get a good virus cleaner. I went to staples. Took a day or 2 as I recall.

How to remove bios password np900x3a-b01ub?

Remove BIOS password by finding the CMOS battery and removing it (very carefully) for about five minutes and then reinserting. Steps:

(1) Disconnect A/C power and remove the battery.
(2) Remove bottom cover with a phillips head (+) screwdriver. There are 3 screws in a line in access holes across the wide front and
(3) remove the plastic or rubber feet at the corners on the rear side. There are screws hidden under them. There may be screws hidden under the rubber plugs at either side of the smaller access plate in the back edge. Pry plugs out carefully and check.
(4) Then split the case by carefully inserting a very thin stiff piece of plastic or metal at the right back corner and seperate the case halves. (5) Life up the cover and set it aside.
(6) Look for a round battery that has a red/black wire going to it that is just to the right of the cooling duct from the processor and chipset.
(7) Uplug the little white plug that has the red/black wire (very carefully) and let the PC sit for about 5 minutes or so.
(8) Replug it and reassemble in the reverse order and your CMOS password should be gone. You may have to set up CMOS again but that should be covered by your Manual. It can also be downloaded from Samsung.
In working with laptops and notebooks be very careful of static electricity (use a grounding strap) and be very careful and deliberate in your removal of hardware---do not overtighten screws etc.
Good luck...

Want to print black and white. How?

Setting the font type color in a Microsoft Office Word document to black will ensure that the document prints the text in black. However, if there are images, graphics or photographs within the document, they will more than likely print in color or hued colors similar to black. To ensure that the entire document prints solely in black ink, you must set the color settings on your individual printer to black-and-white

1.Click "File" and then "Print." To open the print dialogue box using keyboard commands, press "CTRL" and "P" simultaneously.
2.Select the printer you are using at the top of the dialogue box under "Printer" and "Name."
3.Click the "Properties" button next to the selected printer. The dialogue box that appears is different for all users, as it depends on the type of printer being used.
4.Click on a tab, button or selection box indicating "Color." Most options include high-quality color, grayscale and black cartridge only. Choosing grayscale will print the document using various shades of gray and other tones such as blue or green that match the actual hues in the document visible on the screen. A photo or picture that may look black or gray could actually have blue undertones. To print purely in black and white with no undertones, you must select either "black cartridge" or "black and white only."
5.Select "OK" to return to the Microsoft Word printer dialogue box. Press the "Print" button to print the black-and-white document.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Hi i just bought a m\b MCP61PM-AM,did not come

FIXYA has several "solutions" for your motherboard, at:

Take a close look at the motherboard; each pair of pins at the "far-end" (furthest away from the keyboard/mouse connectors) should be labelled, e.g., 'PWR/power', 'HD LED', 'Power LED', 'RST/reset'.

Push the on button and nothing happens

I believe you are using a new power supply now.
Before you start, first check if your Power button is OK.

To do this, first unplug the power cord from your PC.

Remove POWER-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) from you Motherboard
Remove RESET-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) and put it on the place of POWER-Button. (polarity for these buttons is not important)
Plug the power cord back and press RESET.
Does it change things ?
If it starts, then your Power-Button is broken.

If not, remove the power cord and then put te POWER-Button and RESET-Button on their places on the Motherboard.

Now do the following:
(please remember the position and polarity of all cables/items you remove/unplug, Use Digital camera if necessary). Be patient, don't hurry!
- Unplug the power cord.
- Press power button few times (power cord is unplugged).
- Remove the Battery.
- Unplug the Monitor cable and remove VGA card.
- Remove RAM module(s).
- REMOVE any PCI cards(Modem. Lan, Audio etc.).
- Unplug any HDD/FDD/DVD cables from the Motherboard.
- Unplug Power from all your HDD/FDD/DVD devices.


- Put the batery back (be careful to the polarity)
- Put the Computer power cord
- Turn on your PC.

Is the Processor Cooler running ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If not, then your Motherboard is broken !

If there are some beeps, then your Motherboard is OK, but some component(s) is broken.
Turn Off your PC by pressing the Power button for about 4 sec.
Unplug the power cord and press Power button few times.
Put your VGA back, and connect the monitor cable, too.
Put back ONLY ONE memory module (if there are more).
Connect the Power cord and press Power button.

Do you have a picture now ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If you have a picture, put back all other memory modules and PCI cards, connect Data and Power cables to your HDD/FDD/DVD units, but ONE at TIME.
Do not connect and put everything back all at once!
After each change, see if there is a Pcture and (one) beep.
It needs some time but that's how you will detect which device/cable is maybe broken!
And remember:
Before you do any change, AALLWAYS do that with power cord unplugged and power button few times pressed !!!
If there are Beeps, try another memory module.

Again if there are still beeps, you have problem either with your RAM or VGA.
If there are infinite long beeps, than it is your RAM.
If there is one long and many (8) short beeps, then it is your VGA

Replace it!

Connection between emachines case and motherboard

Most likely the wires are for power, reset, and hard disk light. Touch one pair together momentarily, if your compter comes on then connect those wires to the power button. After the computer is on, connect the other two pair to the hard disk light one pair at a time until you see the light activate when the hard disk is running. Then connect the remaining pair to your reset button.

Generaly, the little connectors on the printed side will face the bottom of the case. Also, typically, Black is negative, and white/colour is positive (except on the power sw, it doesn't matter). On the motherboard, where the connectors go, there should be some kind of print saying where to plug them in. (IE, POWER SW, would go into PWR, and HDD LED would go into HDLED and POWER LED would go into PWRLED).

It may look different than this, but generally the same kind of layout, as you can see, it shows the positions, as well as positive and negative.

The fact that the fans are running indicates that your power Sw is connected properly.. Make sure that you didn't accidently pull out/loosen anothe connection to the motherboard/harddrive.

Hi infofreak,
Try to follow these steps one by one.
1. Remove the power supply cable from the hard disk, CD/DVD, floppy drive or any other device you might have.
2. Check the wires that go to your front panel ;pwr sw, reset, hdd led, pwr led, speaker etc. Make sure there are at the correct position.
3. Now turn on your computer, if ok you should see some info on your monitor screen.
4. If ok, you can put back the power cable to hard disk only left the others open. Turn on the computer , if ok then proceed with other device one by one. If something wrong in between then maybe your power supply isn't deliver enough power to your system. Get a larger rating power supply.
5. If step 3 is not ok, then take out the power cable on the motherboard from the power supply. Wait a few seconf and place it back to the connector. Make sure it is securely fit, you should hear a click sound once it is fitted in. Turn on your computer.
If Ok repeat step 4.
6. If still not ok, as step 5 this time take out the CPU.

Try the above steps and see whether they can solve your problem. Good Luck
