Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

Computer keeps crashing

It keeps shutting off I start my emachine up and use the f8 function key to restore the last working setting it gets to the home screen and then shuts off. I think we have previously replaced the power supply. I tried starting it in safe mode, debugging mode and using the lsat working mode. But it continues to shut off. There is a buzz inside after it shuts off and I have to turn the power strip off to get the buzzing sound to stop. I would like to fix this myself.

    I have the same problem. I had stopped using the computer for a few months then reconnected it and everything seemed fine with for about 3-4 then the problem started once again. I have noticed that I can keep the computer on and not used with it not shutting its self off but once you try to use it within 30 min it will shut off and buzz :(

Hi,
Open the case of your computer and try to find out where the buzzing sound came from, maybe from a fan that stuck up, or from a hardisk. Try also to feel the heat sink if it is hot, but with a computer off.
Thanks

I would suggest you to follow these methods.

Method 1

Last known good configuration
It's a Windows startup option that uses the most recent system settings that worked correctly. Every time you turn your computer off and Windows shuts down successfully, important system settings are saved in the registry. If a problem occurs, you can restart your computer using those settings. For example, if a new driver for your video card is causing problems, or an incorrect registry setting is preventing Windows from starting correctly, you can restart your computer using Last Known Good Configuration.
1.Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer by clicking the Start button, clicking the arrow next to the Shut Down button, and then clicking Restart.
2.Do one of the following:
·If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by shutting down and restarting your computer.
·If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.
3.On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press Enter.
4.If your computer has more than one operating system installed, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system that you want to start by using Last Known Good Configuration, and then press Enter. Windows will then resume starting normally.
Method 2
Chkdsk (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds.
1.Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on Command prompt.
6. Type the command chkdsk and press enter
Method 3
Offline system restore.
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

Emachine T5062 will not start, keep getting other user sign in screen


Using a very critical timing on Windows Startup, usually within about 2-3 seconds after powering on the system, press the F8 function key until you successfully have the timing right that enables you to start the PC in Safe Mode...(the exact timing will typically be when the first text on the screen disappears and BEFORE the next screen appears, but each system is different by a tad).


Look for the option to start the PC with the last known good configuration settings....


That should fix the problem!

Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen. Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice. To perform a system restore, follow these steps: 1.Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK. 2.On the General tab, click Launch System Restore. 3.Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next. 4.Calendar dates in bold are possible restore points. Click the most recent one to view system restore information. 5.Select a system checkpoint or an installation restore point, and then click Next. 6.Close all other programs. 7.To start the system restore, click Next. 8.Your computer restarts. Repeat steps 1 through 8 until you fix your configuration issue.

It is possible for the Windows operating system on your eMachines computer to have a critical failure. If the operating system on your eMachines computer is failing, you can use your recovery discs to restore your computer. Recovery discs come with your purchase of an eMachine, and contain your operating system and all your basic drivers. You can recover your eMachines W series in about an hour.

Turn off your computer and press "F8" to enter the BIOS menu. Tab over to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Order" menu. Move your optical drive to the top of the list. Press "F11" to exit and save changes. Insert your recovery disc into your optical drive, then restart your computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Select the "Full Recovery" option from your recovery disc menu. Allow the recovery procedure to complete. Hope this helps.

I tried to do a system recovery by restarting the computer and holding the f11 key but it wont go in to the restore screen mode


You have to keep pressing it during the boot sequence. Can you get F8 to work? You can try having windows restore your last known good configuration.

How do i use a emachine restore disk on a compaq


You could try booting into safe mode and restoring your computer to a time before the update was installed. Was the update KB977165? If memory serves, this update may crash your system when you are infected. Read more here:
http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=7377&tag=nl.e539

Try tapping F8 when you turn on your computer, select "Last known good configuration" and see if it will load the OS that way. If so, you will want to run some scans. I recommend Malwarebyte's Anti-malware to start:
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol

And then run an ESET Online scan
http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

If last known good configuration doesn't work, try F8 boot again, selecting "Safe Mode", and go into system restore to restore your computer to a point before the update was installed.
in XP it is START>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Did this resolve your issue? If so, please rate it. ty.

Computer crashed


Start wile pressing the F8 or TAB key and select the last time your computer worked properly, otherwise try to start in safe mode and restore it the previous day. If this does not rectify it or u are unable to even get there, best option is to Insert your OS CD and boot from CD ROM. Select install, but on the same partion that your OS is loaded on. The screen will display that another version of windows already exist. DO NOT SELECT AUTO REPAIR but go ahead untill u reach the option to repair by pressing the "R" key, do so and follow the instructions on the screen. This will not cause any loss of Data or programs installed other than correct the SYSTEM FILES of WINDOWS. Hopefully one of the above should work....sodeep

To start the computer using the last known good configuration
  1. Print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 2.
  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
  4. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  5. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

note.gif Notes
  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function
