You need to give me some more details to help you with this problem. What exactly happens when you try to use a CD or DVD? What do you mean by 'download a game disk'?

I have an Emachines ET1161-07 which freezes at the E logo. the only way to even reach the BIOs is to remove and replace the CMOS battery; doing this only works once and then the computer freez


This might be a dodgy stick of memory or memory slot. If you have more than 1 stick of memory, see what happens if you just use variations of just 1. Maybe try disonnecting all drives except the one you boot from. And, not sure exactly what you mean by works once and how far it gets after removing the CMOS battery. But does it get far enough to boot from a cd? If it does, try getting hold of a AVG rescue disk this will run a pre-boot virus check which may clear the problem if you're lucky. Obviously you would have to use a friend's machine to burn the disk. Unlikely, but could be a failing powers supply. Borrow one and try it instead. Otherwise, it really sounds like a terminal motherboard issue to me. Godd luck.

My emachines desktop ET1161-07 is randomly playing a high-low beep


A virus check might not get all malware. Download Malwarebytes free and do a scan with that. Check the add-ons installed in you browsers and get rid of superfluous or strange ones. Use msconfig to check which programs are loaded at start up. Uncheck unnecessary or suspicious ones. Good luck.

I recently bought Sims 3 for PC. So, when I open my IBM disk tray and put the disk in, the computer doesn't recognize it and I cannot install the game. This game was a little expenisve, so I would


Hi Elizabeth,

Depending on the model of your IBM PC, it could be that it has a CD drive and not a DVD drive. The Sims 3 game is on a DVD. If this is the case you will have to upgrade your CD player to a DVD player.

To test if your drive is working insert an original music CD into the drive and see if it plays. If it does play you most likely have a CD player and not a DVD player, which means you will have to upgrade to a DVD player/writer drive anyway.
These are relatively inexpensive and retail for approximately $20 to $50.

Feel free to reply should you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

I have an emachine t2984 with a factory video card. I want to upgrade my video card but read that there are no expansion slots (PCI-e) to do this. Does this mean i need to buy a new computer to play video...


A video card can use AGP, PCI, and PCI-E slots. If it is a older model it should have either AGP or PCI ( Mainly AGP ). Many video cards are still available for these slots.
If you want to play the top games of these day though, most of the time these slots will not work games like this. They COULD work, but the best cards of today is PCI-E. Good luck and do not forget to rate :)

CD/DVD Drive will not read discs


Did you check the specifications on the PC game? It is possible the DVD is bad; I have had brand new discs shipped directly from the manufacturer turn out to be unreadable. I would try it on another computer before I went too far. If you don't have one, try taking it to Best Buy or another computer store to see if they can read it.

I going to buy a emachine et116107 today and i


That particular model has PCI-Express slot for optional upgrades. So if you decide to upgrade the graphics look for anything with a PCI-E label or PCI-Ex16. If you do get a new card make sure to disable the onboard graphics in the system BIOS prior to installing new card. Instructions can be found via google search

Sound card drivers


SOLUTION #1: If you have a driver CD that came with your eMachine, look for the audio folder on the CD. If there is a "setup" program inside this folder, then run it. SOLUTION #2: Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, right click on sound device, choose Update driver, install from list, don't search, have disk, browse to the audio driver location on the driver CD, then okay it. SOLUTION #3: Download the file from the following URL, unzip it, then run the SETUP program inside the folder. http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/audio/T1140_50_Audio.zip
