    thank you for your help. I rechecked the pc and made sure everything appeared to be plugged in correctly. I had the pc unplugged for a while as well. The beeping has stopped and the e machine symbol has reappeared, but it will not allow me to input using the f8, f2, or f 10 buttons. Do i have any other options or is this pc done for? Thanks again, lee

Yes, with that beeping sound that you're hearing from your hard drive is a sign of a bad hard drive , that's also the reason why the computer wont even boot because the hard drive is already bad, the best thing that you can do here is to get a new hard drive..

Hope that helps..............

Power light flashes but PC will not boot up following power outage


First off: Protection is important and the ONLY way to go is with a UPS (Battery backup protector). These devices allow the computer to SLOWLEY close down and protect the motherboard and hard drives. Simple bar protectors are of little to no use whatsoever. As for the Start UP; the Boot Sector on the Hard Drive has been compromised. If you attempted to start with the F8 key when you started up the computer and failed to Boot in the Safe Mode, you definitely lost the operating system.
You can try to do a Restore, but that may not be effective.
When a Computer starts, there is usually a Beep (called a Post) and one Beep indicates the motherboard is active. Several beeps indicate a mal-function of the motherboard and it was damaged. In some cases, the Memory (RAM) can be damaged from electrical surge, and thus the computer will not start and the monitor will not be active. Do not touch the internal leads as they are not the problem. In closing, a CPU is very sensitive to power surge and the CPU in some cases can be defective. All in all, with so may options or repair issues; only a professional has the equipment to search for the solution. Good luck: DaytonComputerDoctor@hotmail.com

Power outage now my e machines el 1200 01h won't boot saying no boot file name revevied?


Try to enter your boot screen, usually by pressing F8 when booting up. Then go to your boot priority list and make sure it is booting from your hard drive. I'm not a fan of e machines, it is very possible that the power surge caused some memory or physical errors.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

I hear two beeps when i conect power suply on my emachine t5212 model


Very sorry about your son.

If you can't find the real problem, you can always put that hard drive into another PC to get the files. If so, be sure to looking to a potential "jumper" setting on that drive for it to be recognized.

Most probably is a RAM memory issue, those beeps are issued when a RAM module can not be found, may be the machine sufferend a crash an the ram jumped out of it's slot (less probable) or just broke (Most probably) certainly a tecnician can save your data to another PC or even, fix the broken PC by replacing the broken RAM module with a new one

I haved a Emachine EL 1300G-01W that has crashed


Power it down, pull the power lead out, remove the cover from the base and check that all the leads (to the hard drive and the motherboard) are seated correctly - by physically pushing them in. Then push and hold the power button on the front for 10 seconds. Then replace the cover and power lead and try starting it up.

Power on emachine T6420 and moniter is blank. The moniter soon loses contact with the computer. The fan run and power is OK there is no beep code.


If you mean after the computer performs the self test the screen goes blank and stays blank, eventually turning off you are having a hard drive problem. When the computer boots you should see an E-Machines logo and/or a self test on the screen. That is done by the motherboard as part of every boot up. After that the motherboard passes control to your boot device and loads your operating system. If your computer stops booting at that point, your boot device is not working properly. That could be caused by many things - virus, hardware failure, power outage. If you really mean you see nothing at all on the screen when you press the power button your computer simply is not working at all. Open the case, blow all the dust out of it and reseat all components you can, then try again.

Won't boot up


Emachines are notorious for motherboards and power supplies frying after a power outage. Why? Even after 10 years of working on desktops from all manufacturers... this eludes me.

1)The power switching chip or chipset usually goes first. My best guess is be casue the power supplies in these desktops are VERY inexpensive. IT's amazing if they last longer than 1 year.

Replace power supply.. if doesn't boot still... replace motherboard.

2) If i'm waaay off and you get a boot screen or emachine logo.. but no windows logo... then hard drive crashed or file system got shot...

Replace hard disk and reinstall windows.. contact data recovery specialist. DYI data recovery .. causes more data loss... speaking from experience.

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


There could be a number of causes. Do you hear any beeps when the computer starts up? Try seating all the chips in the motherboard. That means, apply pressure to each individual chip on the motherboard with your finger or thumb. The goal is to make sure each chip is securely attached to the board. Sometimes, heat or new h/w installs partially "pop" some of the chips out of the motherboard - causing the circuitry to be disconnected...
