Question about E-Machines T6420 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Monitor on Standby / NO picture / all fans ON highest level

The programs would end after 10 seconds---if you opened programs/application one coud see them for 10 seconds then all applications would shut down--2 days later--- now--i am left with just a blank screen, fan and hard drive powering up, main fan that usually turns after after 10 seconds- stay on permanete, monitor= yellow buttin, blank.

Is this the video card and if so how do I purchase a new one or used one?

It sounds like something is making your system to overheat thats why the fan stays on. Yes it has nothing to do with a video card. If you upgraded or made hardware changes make sure your CPU heatsink is properly seated and make sure case vents are free of severe dust as it will help to cool cpu.

MONITOR WILL NOT TURN ON. FLASHES RED RED ORANGE GREEN ECT AT POWER BUTTON


probably itz either minor case of improper ground/cpu fan/faulty power cable..
or major case of faulty or defective main board/ram/daughter or addon card(s)..

..plz do check the following as in order:..
the Hardware part:..
1)a)in power on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from cabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if so monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..
b) in case of laptop try to get output from external display unit/monitor using vga port..if there's proper display in there..the problem is probably with either the 'lcd'or 'ccfl' or 'inverter circuit'..

2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..

3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..

4)see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby n see..

5) a) see if ur hdd is noisy or emitting any 'ticking' noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr')..
b) or if the system is not supporting either the newly installed device or itz software/driver /firmware
if so, u need either a fresh os installation or ur hdd is likely to b replaced..

6)remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase in heat..

7)open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market)between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..

8)on main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(espabove1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)..

9) [in case of desktop] the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v(yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg& grey~sb); -12v (blue);-5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic',or pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective protector-transformer/resistance (esp 4.7k)/mosfet..
check the battery n adapter [main power], in case of laptops..

if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....

Linking photoshop and canon MP700 for best quality photos


If your pictures are shot at the highest setting on your camera, you should not have to do anything in Photoshop.

When you go to print make sure the print setting on the printer are set to the highest level.

Some possible causes: a slow card...purchase one rated for faster speed. Picture quality level set to highest level...pictures look great but take time to process. Some brands of cards are slow, especially the cheap ones. Stick with the big names. If your card is full of pictures, it will be slow.

Status Monitor isn't hihglighted so I can't check


This can only be done by getting a new status monitor software . Follow my instructions:- STEP 1 - Install the Epson StatusMonitor software. This program comes on the CD included with the printer. It can also be downloaded from the Epson Web site ( http://download.cnet.com/Epson-Status-Monitor-2/3000-2116_4-10024738.html ).
STEP 2 - Open the Epson StatusMonitor program in any application (such as wordprocessingmag-glass_10x10.gif, spreadsheets or Web browsers) that allows you to print. Click on the "File" menu tab in the control bar of the application.
STEP 3 - Select print or page setup from the "File" menu. A dialog box will open. In that box, click on the "StatusMonitor" icon, which will open the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box. Also, you can click on the "Utility" icon and then the "Epson StatusMonitor" button from the "Utility" dialog box.
STEP 4 - Click on the "Update" button to update the display (if you do not think these levels are accurate) when the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box displays the relative ink levels for each cartridge in the printer.
STEP 5 - Go back to the "Print" dialog box to change the way that the StatusMonitor utility monitors your printer and ink levels. Click on the "Utility" button again.
STEP 6 - Click on the "Configuration" button in the "Utility" dialog box. The open "Configuration" dialog box will let you adjust settings such as ink level warnings and ink level monitoring before each printing.

Most likely your video card is broken. To check if the motherboard isnt broken either, I would suggest you test usb, sound, and other features of the motherboard.
 If your motherboard isnt broken then you have to buy a "pci-e graphics card" at your local store. Shouldnt cost much, about $40-70. Hope that helps.

Computer powers off about 2 times during a session


Look for a heat problem first or RAM problem second.
For the heat problem, blow out the case, fans, processor heatsink and fan. for memory testing get memtest and run. If these dont work look at the power supply.
