How do I replace the hard drive on my emachines PC/


Power down the eMachines computer and unplug it from the power outlet. Remove the left side panel from the computer case by removing the two screws or thumbscrews in the back and sliding the panel toward the back of the computer. Should the panel not move, check to make sure that there isn't a latch or switch on the rear of the computer case that needs to be slid downward in order to remove the panel. Not all cases will have this feature. Locate the hard drive; it should be in a 3 1/2-inch drive bay located beneath the computer's CD and DVD drives. If your computer has a floppy disc drive, the hard drive will most likely be located in a bay beneath it. Check the position of the floppy drive to make sure that you know which 3 1/2-inch drive it is. You should notice two cables plugging into the back of the hard drive; one of these is the power cable that comes from the power supply, and the other is a data cable that is connected to the computer's motherboard. Unplug the power and data cables from the rear of the hard drive, leaving nothing else plugged in to it. Remove the screws that hold it into its mounting bay, setting them aside until you need them for the new hard drive. Slide the old hard drive out of the mounting bay, being careful not to drop it or hit it against any of the motherboard's components. Set the drive aside and pick up your new hard drive, then slide the new drive into the same bay that you just took the old drive out of. Line the small holes in the side of the drive up with the holes in the mounting bay. Secure the new drive by screwing in the screws that you had previously removed, then plug in the power and data cables that you had unplugged from the previous drive. The cables will only plug in when oriented correctly, so you won't have to worry about accidentally plugging them in wrong. Once the cables have been plugged in you can put the side panel back onto the case and plug your eMachines computer in once again. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQToRwe74P8

I have an emachine model 390 (possibly) which is in trouble. yesterday I found it with its power switch constantly flashing & making a clicking noise. I was unable to turn it off by the switch on the...


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

Start wont load window, just flahing light on screen. may have got virus


Remove hard drive, find out make and model of hard drive. Go to hard drive manufacturer's website and download testing software (if you have another computer with internet access). Should be a bootable ISO file. Burn the boot cd and run it on the host computer after reinstalling the hard drive. Sounds like a bad hard drive in my opinion.

When I turn it on, only the fans run. I cannot hear the hard drive run and the hard drive light on the bezel is solid yellow


look on bios to see if detects the hard drive ...if does not boot to windows...the hard disk has no reason to go on ....and the issues could be many ....check the Ram memory if do not appear anything on screen at all ...and just runs the coolers and clicks without boot at all...in this case its the Ram memory ...so check it ...get it out ..put it back ...and remove the bios battery to force it see them again .....if it is booting until the operating system should appear ...and after that nothing ...reinstall ...
Also .....if there is anything written on the screen ..read carefully ..usually it will say whats wrong ...and advise in same issues..like replace hdd ...or files missing ...or blue screen error from memory issues..

Computer noise


More likely one of the fans, but could be the hard drive. Open the case and listen. Fan on power supply, fan on processor, or hard drive are the most likely sources of the noise. Processor fans and power supplies are both cheap and easy to replace. Hard drive is a bit more expensive and you must back it up (which you already regularly do, right?) if you want to keep your data.

My computer wont turn on


Remove the power cable and hold down the power button for about 30 to 60 seconds. plug the power back in and see what happens. If fail look at the back of your computer ans make sure that the fan for the power supply is on. Also make sure that the red switch is set to 115V and not 220V. This is also located in the power supply.


If al has failed your power supply is no longer working and will need to be replaced.
