Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

The computer started to act strange after adding (2) 1024 mb ram

And a geforce 8400gt video card. The computer is used for mlp games World of Warcraft. It started going off in the middle of play so we ran AVG and MS ONE CARE to find the problem and it said there are several viruses and tracking cookies. I am afraid we have done more damage to computer now and need to re-do software or start with a fresh hard drive.We took the video card out but left in the ram. I was reading some of the comments and now am wondering if it maybe the battery on the motherboard. Help it is an emachine t6534.

    I will try that this afternoon. I did not even think about trying one then the other.

    By going off do mean total shutdown of the computer? After removing the video card, is the computer still going off? If so remove the ram you added and use the computer again. If you have no problems, reinstall the video card. If you are still having no problems then the problem may be with the ram that was added.

Thanks for the idea, we took everything out and started the computer after adding each piece back we found that one of the new ram cards caused a lot of problems. I have taken it out and am going to call tiger direct to see about a replacement. We also have a couple of error messages now and I was wondering if anyone knows what theyt are, One is pcst.Tray.EXE is missing and the Second is BigFix has caused a runtime error, both are saying that they need to be reinstalled. Do you have any advice on these.

My pc was initially restarting when ever i started a game but now it restarts even when i open a media player.i have hp d330 motherboard 1 gb ddr1 ram 160 gb hard disk geforce fx 5600 (256 mb)...


I have a PixelView NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 (click on the link to see it) graphics card and my computer started doing very strange things with my video and was locking up my computer. I pulled the card out and looked at the capacitors on it and saw the tops of them were bulging and stuff was leaking from them. The capacitors are the green cylinders with the silver tops and the gold/yellow writing. I replaced the capacitors and that fixed the problem but it would be easier to just replace the video card.

Still lagging in WoW!


Answered originally by TimIsHectic:

Assuming you mean a bad framerate and not actual 'lag', the problem would appear to exist in your processor, as it is old and outdated. and only just fits the minimum requirements to RUN THE GAME, not run the game well.

Answer: You should upgrade your CPU to a Pentium Dual-core at least.

Minimum: Intel Pentium 4 1.3 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 1500+
Recommended: Dual-core processor, such as the Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2
Memory: Minimum: 512 MB RAM (1GB for Vista users)
Recommended: 1 GB RAM (2 GB for Vista users) Video: Minimum: 3D graphics processor with Hardware Transform and Lighting with 32 MB VRAM Such as an ATI Radeon 7200 or NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or better

Video Card PNY VERTO GEFORCE 8400 GS stop working


adcg,
the world of war craft is played online through servers, not just on your computer. the version is needed to see if there are issues with your video card, Do you have XP home or XP pro?
you have more than 1 mb of ram
at this point I am going to say that you have issues with the video card take it back and get an ATI to replace it, they are better and have less issues.
you could also be having an overheat problem with the CPU and that means you need a new heat sink and fan assembly to keep the CPU cooler when you are running this game.
That is about all the help I can give you , my advice is to take the computer to a service center and have them look at the CPU heat sink and fan assembly to see if it is working properly.
hope this helps

More Ram for graphics


You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.
