After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working

I installed a new SATA hard drive on my computer. Emachine T5026. Only 160 Gig. I turn it on but there is nothing on the monitor, the keyboard and mouse do not work.
I went ahead and put in the installation DVD I purchased from eMachines for this computer but nothing happens. After about 10-15 minutes the computer shuts down by itself.

    I have checked all connections. Even unpluged and plugged all connectins back in. Also opened another computer I have to compare it to. Many similarities. All looks OK. I know I am missing something I just can't figure it out. I will have to take it in to a shop. I appreciate your help, anyway.

    Take the hard drive out again, does the pc boot up as normal?

  • SoleAngelus May 11, 2010

    Check your connections inside the computer, nothing coming on the screen at boot can somtimes tell you that you connected something up wrong.

  • Aaron Daub May 11, 2010

    Open the case and check to see if all connections are well... connected.

Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

New DQ45EK gives blue screen during XP setup


You may have a bad sector(s) on your hard drive. Best bet is to run a low level format on the drive to clean it up and then do the install.

Emachine come up where it ask for me to hit f10 or f2 but it wont do anything. My keyboard or the mouse wont work. My emachine is a w3050. Looking for a diagram of how to hook hardrive cd and just to see...


Are you using a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so try using one that you plug in. As for the cd rom and hard drive all you need is one cable for each device hooked to seperate connectors on the motherboard. Ususally the hard drive will be sata which is a red cable and can only go onto one connector on the motherboard. the cdrom is an ide cable(grey usually) and there is a seperate connector for that on the mainboard.

How do you change the hard drive in an Emachine W3609?


how to Install a new hard drive
Do you have the original operating system on CD or DVD? also you need the new HD to be a "SATA" if you do read on

1. unplug all cables from computer (power, Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, speakers, etc.) try to remove static from body and ground yourself.
2. place cpu on a confortable work table (if possible)
3. on the back of the cpu there is 2 screws that hold the side cover, remove those you may have to do both sides.
4. pull the cover towars the back of the cpu to remove.
5. there you would be able to see if you can remove the tray holding the hard drive or if you can get the hard drive out by itself
6. Unplug the 2 cables on the back of the hard drive (power and data)
7. There should be 2 screws on each side of the hard drive remove them.
8. Now pull the hard drive out of tray (that is a go)
9. insert new hard drive in tray and attach side screws
10. connect data and then power to hard drive (can go in in one direction only).
11. place both side cover (don't forget screws) and make sure the covers go in to the tabs so it would not rattle.
12. connect mouse, keyboard, speaker, monitor and power.
that is it
now you just have to reload your operating system with your cd's turn pc on, insert cd's and restart computer, you may have to press on/off switch to turn it off or ctr+alt+del to restart. if the cd is in it may restart and ask you to press a any key to start from cd if not you have to change boot order from BIoS


if it works for you don't forget to rate
me
thx

WD Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 not recognized at install


Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

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.

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.

Emachine boots to bios with a new hard drive installed


Go inside to your BIOS menu then set the BOOT sequence to CD as the first boot so when your PC with the operating system installation disk inside it will load the installation wizard.
Good luck hope that helps........

Install hard-drive


Sata drives don't have an option to be master/slave like IDE drives, b/c the Sata cable is per device. If the computer's not pulling up the sata drive, open device manager (right click  my computer, properties, hardware tab, device manager) and look for a yellow question mark. You'll have to install drivers for it more than likely.
