Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I purchased an emachine desktop at an estate sale that had a note on the tower saying it had a new had drive installed and never used. So I purchase it and brought it home, hooked it up and turned it on. Much to my disappointment, it would not make any sounds and no lights came on either. I've already contacted emachines and they referred me to you. Can you help?

Is the 'New hard drive installed, never used' bit relevant? Open the tower, get hard drive...
PC bought at auction won't switch on ?? Anything is possible, from 'It's really an empty tower with a brick in it for weight' .. to any number of usual suspects.. The fact that most PC computer 's make a beep and light up stuff when switched on for instance relies on the presence of a working PSU.
Your diagnostic approach would begin there.

Someone gave me a emachinine tower model t1742 no cords


I have purchased many different computer cords from stores, flea markets, and yard sales. Sometimes, you can find a small computer repair shop in your local area that will help you with the cords you might need and if you are really lucky, they might give you one or at least have a used cord to sell you. I know power cables can run 10 to 25 dollars retail, but I have purchased them for a little as a dollar from yard sales.

Hi Nicki,
Sorry, this really sounds bad, it would seem that the hard drive is shot from your description. The data may or may not be recoverable. If you get a new drive, you will have to partition it first, then set it as your Master drive, then set the old one as a slave, install your operating system onto the master drive and try to recover the information on the old drive after you have that done. If you cannot successfully recover the information that way, you most likely won't be able to get it at all unless you backed it up onto a flash or cds or dvds.
Sorry for the news but that is what it sounds like

Luckily, eMachine uses a generic system board. You can purchase a case from any computer store. The only thing to watch for is the plate in the rear of the motherboard, make sure it matches your ports. Again I believe you can use the one from your eMachine.

This could be an issue of a video card gone bad. I have experienced the same issue firsthand. This could also mean that no RAM is installed. If you have been using this computer previously, the second option is probably not even an option.

If you have another computer available, please try plugging the monitor in to that machine to test. If it works, your Video Card is more than likely toast.

But not to worry, you should be able to find a new card for that machine. I believe it will be a PCI Video Card, which may run you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on what you purchase. Please consult with eMachines before ordering a new card. Some will not work with your machine.

I hope this helps you out. Have a great day and please don't hesitate to ask any further questions regarding this issue.

How do I factory restore an Emachine w3609?


Hi there.
If there is no option to press F11 as the computer starts then you are going to have to purchase a recovery disk for that machine or purchase a Windows installation disk to fully reset it to factory
