Question about E-Machines T3092 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Will not boot up!!!!

The pc turns on runs thru its normal process, and then a screen saver appears but none of the icons on the desktop appear. It will just hang there. Any suggestions... I have tried using the system's recovery disk, and no luck. I tried reinstalling the MBR and then restarted the pc and still nothing. There is an option to reinstall everything but most files will be lost. If that is my last resort I will do that, just thought if there was something to prevent losing files? Please and Thank you

Re: Will not boot up!!!!

If you have your Windows installation disk then you need tp press 'R' for repair instead of a full installation. This will repair all the system files and you will not lose any documents or settings. But I think maybe you have a bad sector on your hard drive, so when you get up and running go to your HDD manufacturer web site for a diagnosis and repair.

My GX520 pwr light is green, on the board is an amber Led, the somputer boots up, it goes the full process, until the arrow appears on the monitor. no Iconn are displayed on the desktop

If your computer gets to that stage, then I would guess you have an OS ( Operating System ) problem. Try booting from your XP installation CD. If that works then you may have to re-install Windows.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....

It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Do you have any icons visible on the screen at all when it starts up, or just the picture on your desktop?

Emachine desktop shows screensaver but no icon tray below

Okay here we go. Click on the start button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen then click on control panel. Make sure your in Category view and if your not then click on where it says on the left hand side of the box "Switch to Category View".

After this click on "Appearance and Themes" then click on where it says "Choose a screen saver". From there you should be able to choose a different screen saver or to disable it. Try it out and let me know.

I have a dimension E510 and when I turn it on i can log in as the administrator or my guests but it goes directly to my screen saver. It appears to be in a sleep mode or idle mode. None of my applications...

If it goes to screen saver immediately after loading. Then run a spyware/malware scanner to remove the infection. Since no applications are showing up this is mostly likely what is happening.
