Power down the eMachines computer and unplug it from the power outlet. Remove the left side panel from the computer case by removing the two screws or thumbscrews in the back and sliding the panel toward the back of the computer. Should the panel not move, check to make sure that there isn't a latch or switch on the rear of the computer case that needs to be slid downward in order to remove the panel. Not all cases will have this feature. Locate the hard drive; it should be in a 3 1/2-inch drive bay located beneath the computer's CD and DVD drives. If your computer has a floppy disc drive, the hard drive will most likely be located in a bay beneath it. Check the position of the floppy drive to make sure that you know which 3 1/2-inch drive it is. You should notice two cables plugging into the back of the hard drive; one of these is the power cable that comes from the power supply, and the other is a data cable that is connected to the computer's motherboard. Unplug the power and data cables from the rear of the hard drive, leaving nothing else plugged in to it. Remove the screws that hold it into its mounting bay, setting them aside until you need them for the new hard drive. Slide the old hard drive out of the mounting bay, being careful not to drop it or hit it against any of the motherboard's components. Set the drive aside and pick up your new hard drive, then slide the new drive into the same bay that you just took the old drive out of. Line the small holes in the side of the drive up with the holes in the mounting bay. Secure the new drive by screwing in the screws that you had previously removed, then plug in the power and data cables that you had unplugged from the previous drive. The cables will only plug in when oriented correctly, so you won't have to worry about accidentally plugging them in wrong. Once the cables have been plugged in you can put the side panel back onto the case and plug your eMachines computer in once again. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQToRwe74P8

Things to try:
1. Remove and reconnect the hard drive.
2. Remove all USB attached devices. Like other hard drives and anything non-critical.
3. Wipe and reinstall Windows once the hard drive is properly installed.
4. Replace hard drive if bad.

Emachines D4362 starts only after many button pushes


Sounds like you might have corrupt window system files or the machine might not be recognizing the hard drive.
Press the DEL button to go into the BIOS. Go to the section that shows you the hard drive. If it doesn't show you a hard drive model and shows none then your hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced. If your hard drive is recognized in the BIOS then you'll need to try and reinstall windows. If you can't get windows reinstalled then the hard drive is bad at that point as well.

I have an emachine t2885, when i hit the power button, i dont get any power to the computer, but the keyboard, speakers and monitor lights go on, but no power to the computer, help


I'm going to guess pwr supply 12 volts side. The 5 volts side lights up keyboard and mouse; both get replaced when they fix (replace) the power supply.

The hard drive and dvd player us the 12volts side.

Check 12 volt supply side if low disconnect hard drive check voltage again,, if 12 volts hard drive bad,,, if low disconnect dvd,,, if 12volts connect hard drive,,,if 12 volts dvd bad. of course this scenerio can go the opposite way. Do you know how to use a multimeter? Black box maintence is exciting.

Emachines pc keeps saying hard drive is failing


What kind of resources are you pulling on the pc everyday? For example are you doing heavy writing to the drive everyday such as video editing, ripping etc and how much air flow is your pc getting. If the case gets too hot or warm for long periods of time it can cause the hard drive to fail quickly. Lastly check your power supply male sure its pputting out the proper voltage to the computer specifially the connection to the hard drive. If its not stable the nit will cause your hard drive to fail.
