Question about eMachines T6534 PC Desktop
WHEN I WAS ON THE COMPUTER OR INTERNET THE SCREEN WOULD SMEAR OR HAVE ZZ LINES. THEN IT WOULD SHUT DOWN.I THOUGHT IT WAS THE VIDEO CARD ON THE MOTHER BOARD.( EMACHINES T6534) SO BY THE TIME I WAS WAITING FOR THE CARD IN THE MAIL. I WAS HAVING PROBLEMS BOOTING MY SYSTEM.I PUT THE CARD IN AND WAS DISABLEING THE OLD ONE IT SMEARED AGAIN AND SHUT DOWN NOW I CANT GET IT TO BOOT. I PUT IN THE RECOVERY DISK IN,NOTHING.HOW CAN I GET IT TO BOOT TO FINISH. IS IT MORE THAN THE VIDEO CARD? EVERYTHING POWERS UP.I HEAR THE HARD DRIVE TRY TO START, KINDA A TICK TICK NOISE AND THEN NOTHING.I HERE THAT FROM DAY ONE AND IT USELY KICKS IN GEAR.
A number of things here should be checked.
First shut down and remove all cards, and power connections to all the drives such as cdroms, hard drives.
The power supply should also be looked at and tested for correct voltages on each wire. This can be done with a voltage meter.
Turn on the power and see if you can get the machine to start to the bios screen. (this will work if you have a video processor on board, if you have a video card, you will need it to use the monitor).
If that will not work, then you have more problems than you thought at the beginning.
If the mother board will not work at this point, then you have problems with either the mother board or the cpu processor. There is a possibility that there are problems with the memory modules.
So, if you have only one memory module, then I would remove the memory, carefully clean the contacts, (a clean pencil eraser can work, if you are careful, and do not press very hard) and then plug the memory back in and try again. Also if you have extra modules of the same type, try one for testing.
If you are still having the same problems, then the mother board or the cpu is the problem. At this point you should consider if you want to continue and repair or buy another mother board of the same size. If you buy another kind of mother board, remember you will have to re-install your operating system over the original one to get the complete setup and the bios to work correctly with it. Many times this can be done, but you risk losing data (you will lose all data in MY DOCUMENTS), and may have to completely re-install the OS. You may want to install the drive in another computer as a slave and back up any data you want to save before you proceed.
If you decide to continue with your original mother board, and still have problems, then the cpu or the mother board is suspect. To test the cpu, either test your board with another cpu which is compatible, or check the mother board with another mother board of the same exact model.
Hope you find the problem.
