Hi,

I am ArmyMason. Sounds to me you are getting a BSOD. This is most likely a hardware issue and I would look at downloading a "free Hardware Diagnostic testing software", (Google it). Their are many out there and some are better than others. If you can't find anything I would suggest starting with the RAM, remove a chip and try install, if that doesnt work try the other chip. Also try and remove unnessassary hardware like extra video card, NIC, Modem, or any other thing that could conflict with the installation. Best bet is to burn a bootable CD Hardware diagnostic tester and run it to find the issue.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

If I shutdown computer (E-Machines T5224 w/ Windows Vista), it won't boot up the next time I turn it on. Power on and fan runs but nothing else. I have to cut power or unplug it to boot and then system...


during the boot up process for a short time you will see a certain key to enter set up
press that key to enter BIOS scroll to PnP/PCI configurations the default is disabled
select enabled to reset configuration if you have installed a new add on and it has caused a serious conflict that the operating system can not boot
start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive

hope this helps

I have an emcahine T5224 it was given to me ive tried fixing it and determined its not the HDD because it loads the OS on my other computer and works just fine but for some reason it stops and says there...


Hi,

You stated that it loads that OS on the other computer. Is this by taking out the hard drive and putting into another PC? If it is, then I would have thought there is h/w issue elsewhere in your PC...

Usually if you have a message saying that it could not load windows properly, it is an OS issue which I would recommend you fix by using your emachines recovery disks.

Hope that helps

I cant get sound from my cpu when I click on the speaker icon It says no audio ouput device installed, operating on windows vista/ intel pentium D processor 820/T5224 desktop PC any suggestions


Hello,

That usually means that the drivers aren't installed properly.

I would suggest that if you know the manufacturer of your machine, go to their support site and download the appropriate driver for your model.

If you don't know the above information, I would suggest using Windows Update to download the driver. You will need to click the Custom optiond to download the hardware drivers.

Here is information on using Windows Update:

XP instructions here. Vista here.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Problem with my T5224


Try booting to "SAFE MODE" then see how much free space is left on the hard drive.
Also in safe mode, defragment the HDD if you have not do so in awhile.
You need a minimum of 15% free space for XP oe ME to run.

no computer is trash when you are dealing with a software issue.

boot up and tap on the f8 key... when you get to that screen... choose safe mode... if it successfully boots.... go to start menu... and restart again... it should boot... if it wants to do the update let it.... if still nothing.... f8 again and choose last known good configuration

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.

What,s the deal with windows updates in Windows XP,i have a dell laptop with XP home edition.How shoul'd i configure automatic updates,does it need to be turned on automatic download and update 24/7,or...


What I'd do personally. If you have a broadband connection. Just enable the update program to update during the early hours of the morning. Say somewhere between 1AM and 6AM. This can be set so windows will automatically download, install, and configure the updates for your system. Remember, for it to be able to do this; the computer must be on.

This way it won't be a hinder to your every day internet usage, and it will do it's business while you're not using the computer. I have mine set up the same way and it's really nice. A simple reboot on some mornings is all I ever have to worry about and my PC is always up to date.
