Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

The "menu," accessed on bottom of emachine computer monitor will not stop flashing on screen, even though it is not manually turned on. The "exit," button will not always turn it off. Sometimes it will remain on for seconds/minutes at a time, sometimes it will repeatedly flash on and off the screen. I do not believe the buttons to turn on are stuck, as they dont appear that way and sometimes I can work for half an hour on my computer without seeing it flash. This has been an ongoing problem with my computer for the past two weeks or so.

    The main menu for my monitor keeps flashing every ten seconds on the bottom right of my screen. It's the menu that appears when you hold down the 'menu' button for three seconds on the monitor, except i never held it down. The keys aren't stuck on mine either.

    have you tried unplugging monitor then resetting everything

    I think this person is describing a monitor issue, so a screen shot won't show anything. Sounds like the monitor's menu screen is intermittently coming up. This can be caused by the front panel switches becoming flaky or corrosion developing on the circuit board. These problems sometimes occur if spray cleaner is used on the monitor and it runs down onto the switches and board. Sometimes the switches themselves fail. But the trouble is not in the computer.

    I am having trouble picturing your problem. Is it possible for you to take a screen capture? You can do this by pressing the PrtSc button on your keyboard and then pasting into paint and saving the file. You can then insert the image into a post here by using the little picture of a tree. This will help me get a a better idea of what is going on.

How do i change boot order on emachine t3604


You will need to change the boot order in the bios set-up.
Turn your computer off, and turn it n again (alternatively Restart it) These things may be initiated by clicking the Windows button at the bottom left of tour screen, and from the shut down drop down menu selecting the appropriate option) As your computer is starting up, and the Emachines logo appears on the screen
"Press the "Tab" key repetitatively: If that fails to take you into the BIOSsetup, repeat and try either the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys instead of the Tab key.
Once in the BIOS setu[p, Look through the options until see Boot order, and then change that to CD first, HD 2nd. Exit the BIOS setup with save changes option. Done.

Brightness/contrast locked


All computer monitors, whether they are LCD or CRT style, have a built-in feature called the on-screen display (OSD) lockout that prevents users from viewing any images on the monitor. If your computer screen has accidentally been set to the OSD lockout setting, there are several ways you can remove the lockout.

Power off your computer and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lockout message is still being displayed. Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lockout message. Find the OSD lockout heading and read the method that your particular model uses to remove the lockout. Attempt generic lockout removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lockout message disappears. Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings. Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.

Sounds like the monitor menu is popping up. If so, it is not your computer but the monitor that is causing the problem. Is the monitor menu button stuck?

My monitor goes to sleep mode at startup & can't access safe mode


Turn the computer off, open the case and remove the RAM. Does the computer beep when you turn it on with no RAM? If not, your motherboard is dead.

If your computer beeps, turn it off again and try putting one stick of RAM in. If the computer doesn't turn on normally, try the other stick of RAM.

Also, try taking out the video card and putting it back in.

Good luck,
Jason

Emachine T2682 boots then dies


Nope, if the fan on any of the equipment stops, then its a power problem. Hightly suspect the motherboard is at fault loading down the power supply and even possibly burning out the power supply. I've seen it happen to many times.

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard. (sounds like a ram or CPU problem though) if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.
