Emachines T3410 won't boot, black screen, no cursor

WinXP - when you plug it in, it immediately comes on, no pushing the power button to start. Both fans run, power button lights up, LED flashes yellow once or twice and goes dark. Screen never changes from black. Cannot get to BIOS, safe mode, etc.
Have tried: Took out the hd and slaved to another machine, copied all documents and reformatted. Hd now works in another tower.
Blew out dust from tower & motherboard, checked and reseated RAM and CMOS connections. Removed CMOS battery for 10 minutes.
I believe the MB has gone bad, but would like to know for sure that it's not something easily fixable. Any suggestions?

    Thanks ashu-jsh,

    From what i can tell, the computer is not loading the bios and therefore not looking at the harddrive. It won't boot from a cd or floppy either. If I remove the ram module, it does not beep to indicate an error. Not my computer, so not sure how it happened.

    The system does not go to bios or any other screen, monitor stays black. Monitor works on a different tower, but nothing shows at all when I turn on this tower.

I had this same problem, none of the posters above have no clue what there talking about. With the K8M51gc MB, if the dust builds and then the system heats, it can and will blow a cap. Nothing you can do will make the board work again without replacing the cap and there are too many to test on the board and need an experienced tech to fix this problem as soldering the components are extremely small. Your best bet is to get another board from ebay and not emachines or gateway. Their site will charge $150 bucks when you can get it for $75 on ebay. You can also use a board from the T3304 as its the same system basically. It sucks I know but this would be your best bet as I had to go through this myself. If you decide to change out the board, run more fans in the system and use screens in place of the fan to prevent dust. Once every other month, use a can of air to blow out any dust on the board as duct can conduct electric through the board. Hope this helps...

When I push the power button, the main dell start up screen comes on followed by a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. It uses Windows 7


Remove any CD's or USB drives 1st.


Sound like its trying to load and can't find hard drive, CD, or USB device. You need to go into BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key to press during boot. Make internal hard drive first. Save and restart. Reseat hard drive if it does not show up in BIOS.

Hi,

Some of the emachines coming with Recovery image. You need to press F11 key on starting to check whether the image is available or not. If it is there proceed with restore.

Otherwise you need a recovery CD to do this. If you don't have any CD then you could purchase the recovery disk for your emachines from the link below by entering the serial number on your computer:

Imac powerpc g4 will not shut down or restart properly and will not recognize external hard drive


1. Press the power key and immediately press and hold shift-option-p-r until you hear a second startup ****. (This resets the parameter RAM).
2. Press the power key and immediately press and hold command-S. The screen should go black and show a verbose listing of the boot process in white type. When it stops, you will see a flashing cursor at the end. Type the following: fsck -f, then return. This will start a check of the file system, and the fsck program will attempt to repair any errors found. Wait until the program displays the results (it can take a while if you have many files). Post your results here. If it finds errors and corrects them, your problem may be solved.
3. (Don't do this unless the file system comes up OK and you are still having problems.) With the computer off, press and hold Shift-Cntrl-Option+Power for 5 seconds, then press the power key. This should reset the power management unit.

Turn the computer off all of the way by holding in the power button until it shuts off.

Turn it back on and immediately start tapping the F8 key. It should bring you to a menu that has an option for going to "Last Known Good Configuration". Choose that option and see if it boots up.

If pressing F8 doesn't bring you to the menu - you may need to run diagnostics on the computer. To get to the diagnostics, attempt to boot to the Boot Menu by pressing F11 or F12 at the boot screen and see if it gives you the option to run diagnostics.

Wont go into phone mode


Assuming you've tried pulling the battery and booting it again, you could try doing a hard reset on the phone (this would erase all data on the phone), by starting up the phone while holding down the volume up button while turning the phone on, waiting until you get a white screen with 3 skateboarding androids on it, and select clear storage (use the up/down volume buttons to move the cursor, power button to select), then volume up to confirm. If the phone still won't boot up after doing that, you're going to have to take it to a store, as that boot menu is the only thing that you can get to come up if it won't boot all the way up.

Black screen with blinking cursor upon start up


You don't say what Windows are you using.
Anyways, it seems like you have a corrupted BOOT problem.
On Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can insert your Windows installation CD, and choose the "Repair my pc" option.
Windows will do it automatically fro you, and you'll be up and running in a couple of minutes.

Dell Dimension 4600 stalls during boot


Turn the computer's power on.
Immediately put the original Windows XP CD into the drive.
Tell the computer to boot from the CD (not from the hard-drive).
Does it start to boot from the CD?
Do you get as far as the "repair/install" boot-screen?
If so, your basic hardware is OK, and turn your computer off,
rather than choosing "repair" or "install".
Then, it's probably either the hard-drive that is failing,
or the installed copy of Windows XP is fuddle-duddle-ucked up, so that it cannot finish the "Windows startup" processing.

Use the WinXP cd and run a repair on the unit.

When you boot the XP cd, do not use the reopair on the first page. Click on install, then choose the repair option .
