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.

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

I have AMD Sempron 140 on ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 motherboard, Strontium 1GB PC800 DDR2 RAM. But in system properties, the RAM is showing as 768 MB instead of 1024 MB (WinXP 32 bit). The dealer is saying the RAM...


Yes the dealer is correct that the 256 MB of your RAM is allocated to the video card of this computer since the unit has a built in NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Shared video memory (UMA)that uses 256 MB of your RAM , so if you like to maximize the use of your RAM you need to install a expansion video card.

It is lagging for certain games like World of Warcraft. I checked bios, and in only allow for 8 mb of the CPU to go to it. How do I allow more ram to be used?


It configures the system memory allocation reserved for the integrated video controller. Settings are 1MB and 8MB. The most effective solution is disable onboard video and put any Radeon 8 series with 256 or 512 MB RAM, they are cheap now and WOW will be fine, I confirm because use the Radeon 8600 512 MB card. Your computer has PCI Express slot and any Radeon fits perfectly onto it. Good luck!

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!
