Question about eMachines T6534 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Motherboard failures. 4 times in 2+ years.

My T6534 e Machine's motherboard had to be replaced after 9 months. It had to be replaced again 6 months later then 6 months after that and now for the 4th time the motherboard was replaced again. That is 4 new motherboards in 2 years 3 months.

They replace the motherboard but not the processor chip.

Is there a component that is causing the failures which repair is missing?

    Hi maxcloud
    There are no cards added to the computer. It has a phone card for sending fax which came with the machine.
    The mother board replaced on 8-8-08 was part # 4006127R Description: NVIDIA GEFORCE 6100 939 UATX MOTHERBOARD - MSI.
    The computer just came back with repair on 12-31-08. The component replaced has the exact same part number and description as that of 8-8-08.
    Thanks for you interest in helping.

    Are there any extra peices you are putting in your computer if so, can you please list them. (i.e. Video Card, Ethernet Card, Sound Card)

    What motherboard do you have?, there might be a fix I can find.

No Offense rebeleyes1, but they are not looking for an explanation of what most people think. Maybe an e-machine was something perfectly fitted to their budget. Anyways..

Sy ellin, Ive just done about 2 hours of research and what Ive found, honestly, You might not like it. A bunch of other computer technicans curse your board and a couple other boards by MSI. The problem is unknown, some people claim their PCI-E slot just stops working (the slot on the mainboard where you can install a video card). Others claim if you do a BIOS update it might help the problem before it happends. This is quiet interesting to me because I have the same chipset on my mainboard, The Nvidia 6100. My Video card just went poof...So, You and I just might have found the problem. The best thing I can suggest is replace the mainboard in your computer. ASrock mainboards are good, reliable, and cheap. If there is anything else I can help you with, dont hesitate to ask.

Chipset - Provides the CPU functions for a computer.

CPU - Processor Chip

BIOS - Electronic set of Instructions that a computer uses to successfully start operating.

In my opinion e-machines are the bottom of the barrel and if they were giving them away I would have to pass, because they use the absolute lowest cost per unit parts = lowest quality parts in most cases... that is my opinion and not fact, sell it to someone and always buy the best quality you afford it almost always gives you more enjoyment for a longer period of time. Cheers!

Led with number 9 displayed is flashing


LED 9 flashing can mean many things. Here is the list of "flashing codes" for the vostro 1510.

Keep in mind a flashing led is going to blink 3 times. for example,

number one would look like this:

On (solid lit). Blink, blink,blink (paused off) blink, blink, blink... (paused off), (then repeat)


1. ON-FLASH-FLASH = No Ram or ram not seen
2. ON-FLASH-ON = Ram has a problem
3. FLASH-FLASH-FLASH = Motherboard failure (replace board)
4. FLASH-ON-ON = CPU Fault/failure
5. FLASH-ON-FLASH = LCD detect failure/fault
6. ON-ON-FLASH = MINI pci card (controller) failure/fault
7. FLASH-FLASH-OFF = Keyboard fault/failure
8. FLASH-OFF-FLASH = USB FAILURE
9. FLASH-FLASH-ON = Video BIOS or BIOS issue
10. ON-FLASH-FLASH = Modem issue

Depending on the blinking code, you might just need to re-seat or replace your RAM or your CPU. But then again, you could have a more severe motherboard issue.

the vga board has failed, its a very common problem in acer laptops, you can get a replacement part from www.acerparts.com im not sure if they ship into us but for europe thats where I get my parts.
my acers vga failed two times, ones within warranty and 12months after that, I have to say that acer products are really bad quality, I'm not sure about the latest models but from what I've seen the vga chipsets have real issues with the motherboards and keep failing over and over again.


I have not looked inside your model but the vga is either integrated into the motherboard = that means the repair will cost the whole motherboard, better to buy a new one.

if your model has a removeable vga like mine does, then you can consider changeing it to a new one. contact acer parts.

One of the covers in the bottom is the memory, one is network and last one I don't remember.
here are the contact details if your acer is out of warranty
http://www.acerparts.com/contact_us.php

The parts for your model are at http://www.acerparts.com/index.php?cPath=561_562_1064

you will have to contact acer parts directly, it may be that the vga is build into the motherboard or then the vga parts are not listed.


Hope this may help;
