Hi,
HDD S.M.A.R.T needs to be enabled in the BIOS, so just tap your Delete button or F8 through to F12, on bootup, to enter your Bios and enable it, Save and Exit.

Hope this helps

Pxe-mof exiting pxe rom


If you are not booting from a network, PXE-boot is the wrong boot option.

You have to change the boot order so that the PC will boot from your HDD. This can be set in the boot option in your BIOS.

Depending on the type of BIOS, you will enter F2 or Delete during the POST( when the white letters appear on the screen after you turned it on). This will enter you into the BIOS setup. boot options are usaully the last tab. Either disable the PXE-boot or change the priority so that it boots from the HDD first. Please, if you are unformiliar with this, reference the manual or ask someone with some IT background.

If the problem still exists after you configured the boot options your hard disk drive might not be readable. The BIOS just goes to the next availible boot device.

I have just aquired a emachines computer and im wanting to connect it to a wireless router but its not allowing me to do this.


If you are using an eepc with a linux operating system you will need a wireless driver, go to the eepc support on another computer and download driver, alternatively get a copy of puppy linux, load onto usb and run directly from usb, it may have the driver inbuilt into puppy, a third prob is having to turn the wireless key on but as its a desk comp this wont happen, does the computer have wireless capability.

I have a emachines s2485. Couldn't turn on one day so I replaced the power supply. Yhe power now comes on with the fans and light on the mother board but I see no activity on the hard drive light. Is it...


Try refreshing all the connections on the motherboard first like ATX power supply, SATA cables, RAM, etc. Then turn the computer on again, touch the HDD and feel if there's vibration, this means that your hard drive is active. Also, try resetting the CMOS, by removing the battery, but before doing this, make sure to turn off the PC and remove the power cable connected to the power supply. After approx. 10 secs attach the battery again, and turn on the computer, you may need to input the correct time and date. Hope this helps.

Comp not reading montor


It sounds like the on board video has failed. I would try installing a video card on the motherboard. Then in the bios at start up, disable the on board video, so it will use the video card instead.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa,

Emachine wont start, just beeps


This is probably a problem with your DIMM(RAM) Did u recently install an extra RAM?If yes then remove it because the beep sound is due to the mismatch of frequency of two DIMM's. If not open your computer and check if the DIMM is loose just push it in and powerup your comp..Let me know if its fixed..

Hard Disk and Booting issue


go into your BIOS and on the bottom of your screen there should be a (last good config) of (fail-safe config) value for one or=f the F1 to F12 buttons. also. are you running a 4gb hdd??? or is that a typo? anyhow, XP REQUIRES 2GB at all times free if your hdd is running at less that that (cause its full) your boot up could be messed around. finally make sure that the little plug on your hdd is across the Master or cable select pins not the slave as this can cause probs too. good luck.
