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!

How can I get my computer out of safe mode?


With the machine unplugged from the wall remove the battery from the motherboard. Then with the machine still unplugged press the On button for 30 seconds to dissipate any remaining electrical charge on the motherboard. Then re-install the battery, plug the machine back into the wall and see if it will boot normally.

Beep Code Manual


(I'm Computer Technician, I use these codes to trouble shoot hardware issues at my job. Enjoy.)

BIOS Beep Codes

When a computer is first turned on, or rebooted, it's BIOS performs a power-on self test (POST) to test the system's hardware, checking to make sure that all of the system's hardware components are working properly. Under normal circumstances, the POST will display an error message; however, if the BIOS detects an error before it can access the video card, it will produce a series of beeps, and the pattern of the beeps indicates what kind of problem the BIOS has detected. Because there are many brands of BIOS, there are no standard beep codes for every BIOS.

The two most-used brands are AMI (American Megatrends International) and Phoenix.

Below are listed the beep codes for AMI systems, and here are the beep codes for Phoenix systems.

AMI Beep Codes

Beep Code Meaning
1. beep DRAM refresh failure. There is a problem in the system memory or the motherboard.
2. beeps Memory parity error. The parity circuit is not working properly.
3. beeps Base 64K RAM failure. There is a problem with the first 64K of system memory.
4. beeps system timer not operational. There is problem with the timer(s) that control functions on the motherboard.
5. beeps Processor failure. The system CPU has failed.
6. beeps Gate A20/keyboard controller failure. The keyboard IC controller has failed, preventing gate A20 from switching the processor to protect mode.
7. beeps Virtual mode exception error.
8. beeps Video memory error. The BIOS cannot write to the frame buffer memory on the video card.
9. beeps ROM checksum error. The BIOS ROM chip on the motherboard is likely faulty.
10. beeps CMOS checksum error. Something on the motherboard is causing an error when trying to interact with the CMOS.
11. beeps Bad cache memory. An error in the level 2 cache memory.

1 long beep, 2 short Failure in the video system.
1 long beep, 3 short A failure in the video system.
1 long beep, 8 short display test failure.
Continuous beeping A problem with the memory or video.
BIOS Beep Codes

Phoenix Beep Codes

Phoenix uses sequences of beeps to indicate problems. The "-" between each number below indicates a pause between each beep sequence.
For example, 1-2-3 indicates one beep, followed by a pause and three beeps. Phoenix version before 4.x use 3-beep codes, while Phoenix versions starting with 4.x use 4-beep codes.

The PC does not start.Only it beeps and a red light blinks,also fen is not working.


here are some of the basic codes, depending on which BIOS you have...

Also you do not indicate which fan? I would guess you mean the main Power Supply (PS)? In which case it could just be you need to replace the PS.

Here is a link to some other codes as well...
http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

AMI BIOS ERROR BEEP CODES
  • 1 Beep - Memory Refresh Failure (check memory)
  • 2 Beeps - Memory Parity Error in first 64KB block (check memory)
  • 3 Beeps - Memory Read/Write Error in first 64KB block (check memory)
  • 4 Beeps - Motherboard timer not functioning (possible motherboard replacement)
  • 5 Beeps - Processor Error (may need replacement Processor)
  • 6 Beeps - Gate A20/keyboard controller failure (possible motherboard replacement)
  • 7 Beeps - Processor Exception Interrupt Error (may need replacement Processor)
  • 8 Beeps - Display Memory Read/Write Failure (reseat or replace video card)
  • 9 Beeps - ROM checksum Error (replace BIOS chip or motherboard)
  • 10 Beeps - CMOS shutdown Read/Write error (possible motherboard replacement)
  • 11 Beeps - Bad Cache Memory - test failed (replace cache memory)

Phoenix BIOS ERROR BEEP CODES
Phoenix BIOS beep codes are a series of beeps separated by a pause, for example:
beep --- beep beep --- beep --- beep beep would be 1-2-1-2
  • 1-1-4-1 - Cache Error (level 2)
  • 1-2-2-3 - BIOS ROM Checksum
  • 1-3-1-1 - DRAM Refresh Test
  • 1-3-1-3 - Keyboard controller test
  • 1-3-4-1 - RAM Failure on address line xxxx (check memory)
  • 1-3-4-3 - RAM Failure on data bits xxxx of low byte of memory bus
  • 1-4-1-1 - RAM Failure on data bits xxxx of high byte of memory bus
  • 2-1-2-3 - ROM copyright notice
  • 2-2-3-1 - Test for unexpected interrupts
I hope this helps.
