Many of the newer machines for sale now unfortunatly do not include a seperate and powerful video card. The machine comes with an internal video card that shares the machine's memory for video loads; iy is built into the motherboard to reduce the selling price. Many of the current games out there require a very large amount of video power and these onboard video MB's just can't keep up with the software and the game slows to a crawl or fails to work at all. All games sold retail come a minimum requirements list. Make sure you PC has all the requirements the software needs to run. Remember this is a minumum list and this is NOT the best hardware to make the game run well. Games today for the most part require a huge amount of power to run favorably and these sale machines usually don't cut the mustard. Check that the CPU is fast and you have at least 1 to 2 GB of memory installed. Check to see if you have a video slot available to install a decent video card. If it does'nt forget the whole thing a get another PC built to play games on it. If yes, install one immediatly and a good one should cost around $150 or so. The machine's manual should tell you if you can or not.These can be expensive however, so pray the machine you have will take a videocard and good luck.

TV picture burned out


Sounds like you got a bad Capacitor inside the TV that popped and then smoked as the capacitor got extremely hot. Now the power board will need to be replaced on this and your right this should have lasted longer then what you came to expect from the unit when it blew.

Things to do when buying home eletronics and I know walmart asked you "Would you like a exended warranty with your purchase today?" its $29.95 for 3 years and your answer would have been NO i'll take the 1 year fro mthe manufacture. Now you got to purchase the part that went pop and smoke. Upset at the store? Upset at the manufacture? or upset with yourself for not taking advantage of walmarts 3 year warranty for pennys on a dollar? However it is it is.

Fixya is here to tell you what the problem is and how to fix it if your good at Tv repair oe eletronics to boot.

You need a new power supply or you need the componet that popped and smoked, straight put you need repair. Is there a recall? No, but there was a warranty option see these days TV's do not last long why? It would put the manufactures out of business and would set back tech support its all a money grubbing game is it my falt? No I was born in 1974 where the first TV I had was the tube Tv only the best!!

www.partstore.com is where you purchase the new part from. Good luck and Merry Christmas

Emachines t5230 & no power Working fine one day and then no power the next?


Your eMachines features the cheapest power supply in the industry. I have personally replaced 6 of these. You can replace it with a factory unit for $20 or go to your local compter shop, and get a $40 unit that will last until you need a new computer.

( It says... 480Ws but I dont believe it )

$20:

If you have various devices showing yellow exclamtion marks, then you may need to update the drivers for them, or the drivers for the devices are not installed.

Write down the make and model numbers of the devices then do a google search for the relelvant drivers to download. If you have trouble finding the drivers, let me know and I will see what I can do

I hope this helps
