Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Emachines w3609 My emachine w3609 was working fine one night and when I turned it on the next morning, it would turn on but my monitor said no signal and it wouldn't do anything. I got online with tech support and they said to reseat the ram, which I did, still no go. Then they said I would have to buy new memory which I did, a kit of 2 x 1 GB of ram. I put it in and still nothing for a total of 12 times. Then they told me my motherboard ram slots were dead, and I would have to get a new motherboard. Is this the only solution? I am still under warranty, but they said if it was caused by a power surge, I would have to pay them for checking it out. I am not going to spend the money to send it to them, then pay them for checking it out( if a power surge was the cause) and then pay them to fix it. Could there be something else I could do before I spend a lot of money I might not have to?

    It has inbuilt Intel Graphics Media Accelerator with available PCI-Express slot, which we did put a pci-express video card in it and it still did the same thing. Any more ideas?

Hey iluvyakatu

Does your emachine has inbuild video card or AGP or PCI card? if one it has AGP or PCI card try to reseat it. If it is inbuild try to use AGP card or PCI card and see what happen. Also try to check whether you have an inbuild video and AGP or PCI both installed, if you have both try to use one of them.

good luck

Problems with my emachines monitor. I have an Emachines monitor as my second monitor E17T4 monitor. When the machine is on sometimes it is fine othertimes the screen goes black but the power light stays...


youmight remove your graphics and check the socket for dust restart your computer this should activate the found new hardware wizard
if you run an extended desktop this will tell you if the monitor has gone bad
use a vga lead to attach it

click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system you should a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on


the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes
i have read some reviews on your monitor
So the ex-hubby calls me with his woes - his eMachines T3124 is having problems. Seems that when he cold boots in the morning it hits the "E" splash screen and then just goes to black screen. No bios boot screen, no boot to windows. Everything sounds ok though. After a few restarts it boots ok. So, first trouble shoot is to replace the 180w Bestec power supply with a salvaged 300w Hippro from my T6420 (which was replaced with a 500w) - the one I replaced the mobo on. Works great ... for one night. Next morning I get the frantic call - now he gets nothing after the "E" splash but white wavy lines, but the computer sounds like it's running fine. Ok - ok ... think, think. First thought was maybe the onboard graphics have gone, next thought maybe the mobo is going ....

What is the next thing we do after trying a known, good power supply? Try another working montior. I had him try using a trusty older CRT monitor and Wha-Lah! After less than 3 years the E17T4 LCD monitor had failed. Most recent crisis handled. This little incident has made him realize though that he needs to burn all his picture and videos to CD. Scared him to think he could have lost them. Today's reminder? BURN your pictures and videos now! You never known when something might happen. And eMachines monitors are ****.

hope this helps

Worked fine last night, discovered it this morning still turned on but no signal to monitor. Rebooted and it began a consistent beeping with no signal to monitor. Unplugged several times to no avail....


the beeping is coming from the cpu.

1 unplug pc
2 pull out ram chips
3 use an eraser to clean the gold, yes thats gold

what happens is the gold on the ram oxidizes and does not connect properly and can go bad but cleaning it with an eraser sometimes works. take a cpu that is working unplu it pull the ram and you will see the same thing your other pc is doing.

4 reinstall ram (correctly)
5 boot up cpu
6 please vote.

Computer not communicating a signal to monitor


You can fix that by getting a new graphics card
I'm assuming you have a T3830 emachine.
here's the link to replace video card

Won't turn on


Seems that your CPU-Cabinet is not giving the video output for your monitor. Please check the powercord and other internal assembly (if possible) that runs in and around the cabinet and restart the machine.

No - that is, not unless you replace the motherboard. It isn't designed for the new processor.
