Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have a T5086 model, when I plugged in a USB cord for our GPS, both keyboard and mouse quit working, We have had no issues with the GPS and connecting previously, although I used a different USB cord this time. I've powered down and it does not fix the problem. I've connected them to my laptop and they work fine.
You have done an excellent job in test the components on a different system. If you want to use the items on the Emachine you may need to check with the manufacture of the GPS for any reported issues with certain manufacturers and find if they have any work around. You may also do the same with Emachine's. Personally, I purchased an Emachine unit when they first appeared on the market. I discovered that they had a tendency, like Dell, to build with proprietary rather than off the shelf hardware. I experienced compatibility problems with their hardware which I did not find elsewhere with either other manufacturers such as HP, Toshiba or from built-from--component PCs.
If you have found the workaround, ie. your notebook. You may be wise to save time and energy by limiting yourself to using these components on that unit.
