Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
My desktop will work ok for a week or so and then out of nowhere when I try to turn it on it will beep non-stop and nothing comes up on the screen. When it does this the fan comes on but then beep..beep..beep..beep. If I leave it unplugged for a week or two and then plug it back up one day it will resume working as though nothing ever happened. It is very aggrivating since I don't know when it is going to happen. I had a friend look at it and he checked the power supply and said he doesn't think that is what it is. He says it is working fine for him but I know that when I get it back it will start doing the same thing again. I have read some of the responses to similar problems on here but would really appreciate any advice you have to offer.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium, and the specs on the pc are : emachine w5243
serial number GC575C 400 06852
athlon 64 processor 3800+ 2.4 ghz,512 kb L2 cache,
2000mhz system bus

You might be having a minor dust particle situation going on. Take the memory out of the system. Get a can of air and blow out the slots on the motherboard where the memory would normally go. Then take the can of air and blow the connectors on both sides of the memory. After this then put the memory back into the slot firmly. Don't worry cause the memory can only go in one way in the slots. It should snap into place. After this then turn the computer on and it should boot up fine. If you keep having intermittent problem after this then replace the memory.
