Machine keeps napping I guess is a good way to say it

My computer keeps napping and keyboard turns completly off. It is a emachines keyboard. I have never noticed before but in the upper right corner where it says emachines there are three smybols. The first one is Number Lock and when you turn it on there is a light that comes on. The second symbol is Caps On when you have it on it also has a light that comes on. The third symbol is what? Somehow I accidentally turned the light on and have been trying to turn off but my computer just goes to sleep and so does the keyboard. Can you help please? Janet

    Thanks Guru. I did quit touching it after it went to sleep on me about four times. I appreciate your help. I will check it out after I get back from running an errand. Thanks again. Janet

Turn the computer off and unplug it. If it is a laptop also remove the battery. Let the computer sit for at least two minutes then reinstalll the battery, plug it in, and turn it back on. Your problem should be fixed. good luck.

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.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.

Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Keyboard does not work

need to what? I'm not sure what the rest of the question is but it sounds like you need to keep your computer from going to sleep mode. You can do this by clicking on your start menu then going to control panel then inside power options you can turn sleep mode off. There really is no real reason for a home pc to go into sleep mode.

Keyboard doesnt work on my repaired emachine with win xp

Could be a couple of things.

First, try connecting another keyboard using the same type of connection as your keyboard. (PS2, or USB). If that one works in the machine; then it's more then likely that there is a problem with your keyboard.

If it doesn't work, it may be a problem with the system itself or possibly a software problem. To test a keyboard is very simple and this test is integrated in most of the BIOS startup systems today. Simply press more than 7 keys right when you turn your power on to the system. If it beeps after a few seconds of holding or brings up a keyboard error, then the keyboard is communicating with the system. If there's a keyboard error that actually states that there is no keyboard present; then there is a problem.

I hope this helps you narrow it down. If it's not the keyboard itself, and you can't get any keyboards to work, I'd have that shop take another look at what they did.

Not loading?

Your OS is messed up.
You will have to reinstall your OS and drivers.
If you have the CD's that came with your system you should have no problem, just follow on screen instructions, if not, you will have to install the OS and get the driver for your network card so you can go online and download the rest of the drivers for your e-machine, sound, video, usb and chipset drivers.
Good Luck.

JUST HOLD THE NAP BUTTON UNTIL IT NO LONGER IS BLINKING NAP, dont return it, its very good at waking you up in the morning, and is basically a good alarm clock, it just has a different way of turning nap off.
