Question about eMachines eM250-1915 Netbook

1 Answer

Emachines Em250 has a blinking cursor after bios menu

I start it up and it shows the main startup, after that it goes right to a blinking cursor in the upper left hand screen. I hit F2 and switched it around so it would boot from an external cdrom but that won't work either.

May be a bad HDD. Can you access the recovery software at boot? Remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, with one habd push the on/off button, with the other press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly. Here's the procedure: http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4300/DX4710faq6.shtml

SOURCE: eMachines%C2%AE eM250-1915 CANNOT CONNECT TO

Maybe the cable is broken?
You should try another cable.

If thant won't work, maybe your router block the traffic between the router and the pc. But it is a bit difficult to explain that. When you tried anoter cable and it still doesnt you, you can send me an email with the details of the router (brand, type etc.)

Good luck!

Default boot order for emachine laptop 732


Step 1:
All computer systems go through a set of instructions called the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) when they are turned on. The BIOS checks all of the hardware and software installed on the computer to make sure they are working properly before loading the operating system. You may need to access the BIOS menu periodically to find out the current version of the BIOS you have if there are upgrades available. The command you use to access the BIOS settings on an Emachines computer will vary depending on the specific model you have.

Access the Start menu and click "Shut Down." Select the "Restart" option. Wait for the Emachines logo to appear on the screen as the computer begins booting up again. Press the "Tab" key when the logo appears and see if the computer switches to the BIOS menu. Press the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys if the "Tab" key doesn't take you to the BIOS menu screen. Use the right arrow key to highlight the "Main" entry and press Enter. Scroll down to the heading labeled "BIOS version." Check the long string of numbers and letters under the "BIOS version" heading to locate the current BIOS version your Emachines is using. Press the "F10" key to exit the BIOS menu screen and finish booting up the computer's operating system.

I need to press a key on my keyboard to start factory recovery


Hi and welcome to Fixya!

In order to revert the machine back to its factory setting, you need to have the recovery disk (if you don't have it, call the warranty support line of e-machines so they can provide it to you).

To restore Windows from your recovery discs, you will need to
insert the first backup disc and enable the F12 Boot Menu via the BIOS Setup
Utility.
1 Turn on your computer and insert the first system recovery disc into the
optical disc drive. Restart your computer.
2 During startup when the eMachines logo shows, press the F2 key to enter
BIOS Setup, where you can set system parameters.
3 Use the left and right arrow keys to select the Main submenu.
4 Use the up and down arrow keys to select F12 Boot Menu.
5 Use the F5 or F6 key to change F12 Boot Menu to Enabled.
6 Press the ESC key to enter the Exit submenu, press the ENTER key to Exit
Saving Changes. Press the ENTER key again to select Yes. The system will
reboot.
7 After rebooting, when the eMachines logo shows, press the F12 key to
open the Boot Menu. Here you can select which device to boot from.
8 Use the arrow keys to select the IDE1*, then press the ENTER key. Windows
will be installed from the recovery disc.
9 Insert the second recovery disc when prompted, then follow the onscreen
prompts to complete the restore.
10 Remove the recovery disc from the optical drive once the restore is
complete. Do this before rebooting your computer.

Hope this helps!

What does it mean when your screen says error while initializing the NIC? Computer will open to desktop page. Only get black screen with blinking cursor.


Ouch, it sounds like your laptop cannot recognize your operating system. When a computer boots up it looks for an operating system (such as windows) on differnet devices. For example: 1. hard drive, 2. dvd drive, 3. network card. You may have a dead latptop and need to reinstall the operating system.

sounds like the CMOS memory is currupt, or you got a virus that worked its bay to the BIOS. I would first try to unplug the computer open the case and find the cmos battery. It looks like a big watch battery. Pull it out and leave it out for a good minute or so, plug it back in, and see if you can't get into the BIOS. If you do not find the battery. there should be a little jumper near the corner of your mainboard the says "CMOS" next to it. pull that out and leave it out for a minute or two. then plug it back in. This will clear anything in the bios and set everything back to factory defaults.. (this does not erase anything on the hard drive, just the options and memory in the BIOS)

Screen is black and only shows cursor blinking in upper left hand corner. Keyboard not responding. Changed the keyboard 3 times.


Start the computer up and repeadetly keep pressing DELETE to access BIOS menu, Once BIOS menu is aquired make sure that BIOS can see your main harddrive, If that checks out then you may need to set your booting device order to boot the harddrive that contains your Operating System. If that still does not work then you may have a bad motherboard.

Press DEL on startup and select "last best known config that worked" If that doesn't work you have probably corrupted the Win registry.Will need to take back to store, beware that if its a software fault you will have to pay and may lose all your data n the HDD!!!
