Question about E-Machines eMonster 600 PC Desktop

2 Answers

E-Monster 600 won't shut off.

My brother-in-law has an e-monster 600 that just keeps running. Both the green light on the off/on swithch and the orange light above it remain on. Depressing the on/off button does nothing. Unplugging the machine shuts it off. As soon as I plug the power cord back in the machine starts running. How do I shut this thing off? While the machine is on in this situation there is no signal to the monitor; the DVD drive does not open either.

Re: E-Monster 600 won't shut off.

It would help if you indicated whether or not this exact configuration ever worked. I will have to assume that it was once working and that nothing changed (like added hardware or software) before the error condition presented itself. In that case, I would suspect a faulty power on switch. If you had a multi-meter you could set it to Ohms reading, disconnect the on/off switch from the motherboard and put one lead on each of the two pins. They should be open in the off condition. Try depressing the switch. The meter should change from the open condition to a short. I suspect that the switch is always shorted. As for the monitor and DVD problems, they sound like a different issue, or else the motherboard is shot altogether. In any case, you will want to find out first why the power-on switch isn't working. Once that is resolved, and if the other two problems are still present, I would remove one of them from the equation, preferably the DVD drive, by disconnecting from the motherboard AND power supply. If all comes up normal then the DVD drive is ad (not an uncommon problem, actually). If the monitor still doesn't come up, and if you are using a video card AND have onboard video available (if you have a 15-pin video connector on the motherboard then you have on-board video), try removing the video card and just going with the onboard video. If this works then it is likely you have a bad video card. If there is no on-board video, try using a different video card (a friends or one from another computer). If none of this fixes the problem you might want to try replacing the power supply as it could be under performing and just not giving the motherboard enough "juice". If even that doesn't work then I would say your motherboard is toast and needs to be replaced.

No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.

It is the power supply. EMachines have a long history of using cheap power supplies. I have replaced over a dozen EMachine power supplies with a 100% success rate. They are easy to replace and can be had for less than $20. Just write down the model number and take that to a computer parts store or remove the power supply and take that with you. Steve

My alienware 14 is leaking and it won't start

I trust you mean a ram leak and not that your younger sibling has poured a soft drink into your computer.

Here is a little information about a ram leak problem:

These new operating systems (post xp) are supposed to handle the RAM housekeeping. You certainly have a problem if the computer no longer boots! That might call for a restore to factory settings. How do you know it is leaking if it won't start? Did you just install some monster program that demands more ram than you have? If so, go into safe mode and uninstall it. Then install more ram.before you try reinstalling said monster. Run some diagnostic checks on the system before reinstalling any program you uninstall. --Particulary something that tests the RAM.

Go into the BIOS (watch your POST screen as you turn the computer on for instructions if you don't know how to get in there, it will say something like "press F2 to enter setup") and set your computer to boot from your CD drive. Put your restore or XP disk in the CD drive and reboot.
