Need HD Caddy for Emachine M5312. Not System board, Not HD but on

I posted this before but the solution pointed to an ebay site offering a system board. The system board DOES NOT come with the caddy but only a slot to insert the caddy and HD in. Any ideas or polaces to order a caddy from would be helpful.

I would like to add a hd-port to my emachine T1641-02w. What is compatible for the computer?
Above is a link to specs for your system. It comes with a PCI Express port which would allow the install of a graphics card. Reading the specs, it mentions the NVDIA GeForce 7050 which if installed on your system, would allow hd output. If you can't gain HD at this point you may want to consider insatlling a garphics card in the PCIe slot.

How do I clear the BIOS drive lock on eMachine notebook M5312

you can't. you need to replace the hard drive, that's the solution. there's no easy way around this feature.. it's specifically desiged so if the computer is stolen the drive becomes inaccesible.

My bios speaker will beep on startup but nothing more. What avenue should I approach to get past this part of startup?

First you need to know which BIOS you have and how many beeps it is producing... these beeps are the POST - Power On Self Test. They tell us if there are problems such as missing keyboard, video card not working, memory faults etc...

Then you need to go to the appropriate BIOS site and see what the number of beeps mean.

If it is a single beep - it means all is well...
As you are not getting anything more you should check to see if the Hard Drive (HD) light flashes - if so - the HD is probably operating ok and loading your system but there is either a problem with your monitor or video card... borrow another monitor and see if that helps...

But it all depends on the number of beeps you get and what kind - long and short beeps (like morse code).

If this helped you at all please vote!

My laptop, emachine m5312 shuts down by itself despite the power settings to stay on, any ideas?

it may be set to hibernate in the bios. if it's randomly shutting down while you are working then you probably have an overheat issue.

My usb 120 gb hdd not eng. say to me that pcb of that hdd is not can i get new pcb

You can get a new PCB board for most drives but ask your engineer if he's tested the drive with a different caddy first. If not ask him to try that, if the pcb board in the caddy is failed it's just easier and cheaper to buy a new caddy/enclosure for the drive than to find and purchase the board.

That being said if he's tested it already or does and confirms it's the PCB board for the harddrive that's failed, buy a new caddy anyway just to be safe and hit ebay. There are several reputable vendors who sell used boards from salvaged drives that you can purchase to get the drive up and running long enough to get you files off the drive.

If you have trouble finding one, get back to me with the HD, not the enclosures, PN, S/N Batch Number, Date Code and site code if available and I will see if I can locate one and direct you to it. If not your next best option will be to send the drive to a data recovery firm for salvage. In that case, provide me with your Country, State, City and I will recommend a nearby site that can accomodate you.
