Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
OK, I have an E machines desktop.
3.2 GHz Intel celeron D
whatever all that is..
It came with 512 Ram DDR2
I'ts supposed to be able to have up to 2 gig of ram.
I bought two 1 gig sticks.
Put em both in, and the computer fan kicks on high, and never slows down, and the monitor acts as iff its not connected to the PC.
Take one stick out and put the old 512 in, and it all works fine, the comp says it detected new RAM and the system stats show 1.5 gig RAM.
I tried installing the other stick again, and had the same problem.
I then reinstalled the old 512, and replaced the 1gig stick that was working fine with the other 1 gig stick.
It all works fine.
But it will not work with both 1 gig sticks.
Whats up with that?
Am I just not holding my mouth right or what?
You should ask Hokuwho. He and I had an informative discussion in the lounge involving eMachines just before the Holidaze. I tried to find it so I could put the hyperlink here, but no joy.
The good news:
He supplied many e-references. He probably could rattle them right off for you.
The bad news:
Most of the references were eOwners who were real ePissed at eM. So much so that they were organizing a class action eSuit.
Really, Steve is a good bet on this one

Try to update your bios. It's possible that the motherboard cant handle 2GB or reseating the jumpers may do the trick. Look for a set of 3 pins sticking out of the motherboard with a plastic wrapped around 2 of the pins. The pins are about 3mm long. There should be a label near the pin. You may find 2 sets of 3 pins. Just post back the labels you found for both.
