Question about E-Machines W3503 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can not reboot computer.

I haven't been able to reboot my emachines W3503. I keep getting flashing screens that say the monitor is sleeping, a screen of the emachines logo with Bios settings and Boot menu F2 and F10, and a screen that apologizes for the inconvenience and offers options like reboot in safe mode, safe mode with networking, and so on. All options I've tried have resulted in the previous screens.

Emachine ET1161-05 desktop...monitor keeps going to sleep...comes back on only if i move the mouse...very annoying, i don't want my monitor to ever go into sleep mode...pls help


This may be something that Windows (or the computer is telling Windows) to do. Everyone wants to reduce the power consumption in the computer, so be default your monitor may be going into 'sleep' mode and turning off.
1) To change this, RIGHT click on the Windows desktop. 2) When the menu appears, select PROPERTIES, then select the SCREEN SAVER tab. 3) There are 2 things to check here. First at the top, make sure that your screen saver is selecting something beside BLANK. This will cause the monitor to blank out and appear to have turned off. 4) The second thing to check is the POWER settings. Click the POWER button at the bottom on the screen. 5) Now, you will see 2 rows of power options, one for when the computer is plugged in (which is all the time with your desktop) and the other is when on batteries. We're concerned with the PLUGGED IN settings. 6) Make sure the TURN OFF MONITOR setting is set for NEVER. This will ensure that your monitor never turns off on you. 7) Now click OK and OK and now your monitor shouldn't turn off on you.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

My emachine monitor doesn't want to come out of sleep mode. it keeps flashing on and off. the geek squad was here yesterday and said there is a button or code that can fix the problem but it didn't come...


I ran into a similar problem with a dell screen. The problem was that the DVI cable wasn't receiving enough electricity. Once that was changed this problem never happened again. If is new, you can probably get a new cable from your warranty.

I just bought an SVA monitor i wanted to know if it is compatible with an Emachines CPU? The screen keeps saying "Unknown Mode" and :Entering Sleep Mode" what should I do?


Yes, if the plug fits into the video card port then it will work. Did the monitor you had before work? Sounds like a video card problem not a monitor problem.
Try hooking the monitor to another computer to test.
Let me know what happens.

Where is the disk drive for a floppy disk located at on the tower


Sorry, but it appears that the EMachines model W3503 does not have a floppy disk drive installed. See this link: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/emachines-w3503/1707-3118_7-32178774.html

Floppy disks are obsolete at this point. If you have data on a floppy disk that you wish to retrieve, see about getting help from someone you know who might have one on their computer system, or visit a public library (you might be able to offload the floppy disk contents and e-mail them to yourself).

Most people use USB flash drives now. They are far more reliable and have enormous capacity. Definitely get one if you don't have it. The W3503 computer has several USB ports on it.

Amber colored power light on eMachine W3503


The amber power light indicates that your computer has been "sleeping" or "hibernating" and usually all it takes to restart the computer is tapping a key on the keyboard. If this is not the case, try holding the Power switch down for 6-10 seconds to force the system off. Restart in Safe Mode and try to find the settings for Sleep/hibernate, open the control panel and open the Screen Saver. Select "Change Power Settings" and set it for "Never" on sleep and hybernate.

Ok, i have two things to ask 1: Where is the video card on a emachines W3503? 2: Could a video card swap be done between a W3503 and a W3052? Thank you for viewing :)


1. The emachines W3503 has an integrated ATI Radeon™ X300 based graphics card. It has also a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available.

2. The emachines W3052 has a NVIDIA® GeForce®4™ MX graphics card. I'm not sure whether it is integrated or not, but I'm sure that if it is not, it will be an AGP graphics card. Since The emachines W3503 has a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available for installing a graphics card, the swapping of graphics cards between the 2 machines is not possible since they support different types of graphics cards.
