Question about Samsung N150 Netbook

2 Answers

I am happy with my N150 but is there a single button to switch off the computer other than going to "start" and "shut down" which may last several minutes in the process and more if there is an "update" to load? Thank you, Geoff

The default action for the Power button on the start menu in Windows 7 is shutdown, and in Vista is Sleep, which isn't necessarily useful for everybody, so we'll explain how to change it here.
Change Windows 7 Shutdown Button
clicking on the start menu and choosing Properties.All you need to do is change the drop-down for Power Button Action to whatever you would prefer.
Change Windows Vista Power Buttons
You can configure this setting easily by using the advanced power settings panel, which is a little tricky to get to normally, but we'll take the shortcut.
Open a command prompt (type cmd into the start menu search bar), and then type in the following:powercfg.cpl,1You could also take the long route (Control Panel \ Power Options \ Change Plan Settings \ Change Advanced Power Settings)

Go to control panel and go to power options. There should be a setting for what happens when you press the power button. You can set this to sleep, hibernate, shutdown, etc.
Alternatively, you can create a shortcut icon on your desktop that runs a shutdown script. Instructions for making one can be found here:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-the-shutdown-icon-on-your-desktop-and-others./

You should specify what operating system you are using.

Windows updates will still be downloaded and installed unless you turn them off through the control panel.

How to Reset BIOS on the GA-X58A-UD3R<span style="font-style: italic;">Motherboards often include hundreds of settings in the BIOS to adjust the performance and stability of your computer. Many of these settings, when improperly configured, can prevent the computer from booting. The traditional way of resetting the BIOS when it doesn't boot is to open the case and place a jumper on the motherboard or remove the battery for several minutes. Most newer motherboards include a reset button near the peripheral ports. The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R uses this more convenient method.</span><br /><br /> <span>Instructions</span> <ol style="font-style: italic;"> <li>Power down your computer by selecting "Shut down" in the Windows task bar or press the power button on your case for four seconds.

The button is located with the peripheral ports between a USB port and the coaxial S/PDIF port.</li> <li>Press the "Delete" key when your computer starts up to enter the BIOS setup.</li></ol> <ul style="font-weight: bold;"> <li>Pressing the "Clr CMOS" button while the computer is powered on could result in data loss.</li></ul><br /> <span><span>References</span></span><a href="http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-x58a-ud3r_v2.0_e.pdf">GA-X58A-UD3R USER MANUAL</a><br /><br /><br />*please leave a ratings if this information is helpful and beneficial to you.<br /><br /><br />Regards<br />MultilinkEnt. <br /><br /><br />

Enable Hibernation in Windows 7 Starter on Samsung N150


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity Your Computer in sleep mode b> First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby. From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management. Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button. Push the Power button. b> Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby b> Save all work before leaving your computer. From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel. Double-click Power Management. Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks. Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered. b> Putting Your Computer in Hibernation b> From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel. Double-click Power Settings. Click on the Advanced tab. At the When I Push the Power Button On My Computer screen, click Hibernate. Click the Power button. Hope this helps.

Put all your settings back to the way they were and check the time and date on your computer (also on the router), WPA uses encryption, if the time difference between the two is too great it can break the encryption (seen this often).

Hello,

Press and hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and this should shut down the computer. If not, you may want to switch the power supply on the back of the computer to off to shut the computer down.

Hello there,

All rivers are must for the issue which you are facing. Once you are clear with all the installation. Open the yahoo messenger or any other messenger which supports video chat and try to activate the video option if you see the video. BINGO for it. if not then there is a hardware malfunction in your system. Need to get it checked.
Happy Computing all the best
Thanks
