Emachine T5234 beeps 5 times and won't turn on

5 Short BeepsYour motherboard is complaining. Try reseating the memory and rebooting. If that doesn't help, you should consider another motherboard. You could probably get away with just replacing the CPU, but that's not too cost-effective. Its just time to upgrade!

Make sure the computer is turned on then Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then kneel in front of the desktop facing the cd drawer. Look closely at the drawer and you will see tiny hole where you will insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) and at the same time Press the Button on the cd drawer while applying pressure by pushing the paper clip (Gem Clip). The drawer will pop open. Don't worry about breaking something, that's why that tiny hole is there.

PCV R44G, won't boot, no fans, won' turn on.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My disc is stuck in my harddrive i have a dell xps one and everything is together

Here is a easy fix and all you need is a small paper clip. Turn your computer completely off first. Take the paper clip and open it up so its straight. Now look at the front of your DC/DVD drive. You will see a pin hole that the paper clip can fit in to. Put the paper clip in the hole and give it a push. The drawer will pop open, then with your hand pull it out the rest of the way and remove your disc. Start your computer back up and either the drawer will pull in by itself of just give it a push and it will pull back in for you.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please give me a YES on the page you received this response on. Thank you
