EMachine T1840 Will Not Boot

Hi, I have an emachine t1840 that will not boot. The problem started when my mother tried downloading an update. She thought it was frozen so she started pressing a combination of keys (don't know what I think she was just pushing). Then she did a hard shutdown, when she turned it back on it went from the screen with the emachine logo then to a black screen with a cursor. I tried getting it to the safe boot mode but cant get it there, used F8 and F5 with no success. I can only get it to the set up menu. Went to boot menu and told in to configure default settings, has not done anything yet. We have the 2 restoration CDs but we are trying to save personal files. Do have any suggestions on how to go about fixing in it without have to erase all files?

Well sounds like you are in quite a pickle. If the restore is not functioning properly you have one of a few options. Continue with the restore without backing up, take it to a computer specialist and have them back up your information and redo the operating system, or simply do nothing preserving your files. Sorry to be so straightforward, but aside from being there and playing with it myself there is really not much that can be accomplished.

Well the first thing is first. Usually depends on the Operating system. If it is a later version of XP or even Vista. Try to boot it from the restore cd. They will usually tell you if your going to lose important information and ask you if you would like to back up the information. Based upon that you can move forward or not move forward.

I cant get my sound driver to work for my emachine t1840 all i get is a code 10


incompatable driver, try this one:

http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Audio/Audio_Realtek_5.10.0.3900_XPx86_A.zip?acerid=633930062807526656&Step1=Desktop&Step2=T%20Series&Step3=T1840&OS=X01&LC=en&BC=eMachines&SC=PA_6E

if this doesnt work, then your motherboard wasnt made by emachine, and you need to find the brand and model of your motherboard, then find the correct driver from the brands website

Hard Drive


You can replace it with a larger one, just make sure you buy the proper hard drive. If its and IDE hard drive, buy and IDE hard drive, if its an SATA Hard drive, buy an SATA Hard drive. also make sure after you install the new hard drive that you use the operating system cd to format the drive and to install the operating system.

Emachine cant find operating system


Hello,

If it doesn't show a HD in bios, that means that either the HD isn't connected properly ie you have 2 devices set as slave or master on same ide cable and it cant detect the HD. Try temporarily disconnecting the CDroms or other devices that may be conflicting and see if that helps.

Hope that helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

EMachines T1840 mother board crash


You need to get hold of a boot CD - BartPE is great for this. Put the hard drive in another computer, and you'll find it more than likely blue screens, as the Drive Controller Drivers don't match the motherboard. Run a program called FIX-IDE, reboot, and it should at least boot. You might find that all sorts of other bits don't work though, but your apps should. Download the drivers for the new board and you should be off and away.
