Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My W3052 e-machine shuts off with a two tone alarm...dee-doooo-deee---doooo-deee----dooo coming from the tower. Only unplugging the main power cord will stop the alarm. Then I can reboot.. From on line research I'm thinking the Power supply needs replaced. What kind do I need, can I order it on line and would it be difficult for me to replace?

It sounds like it could be your power supplie but with your description still hard to be sure.
the power supplie is fairly easy to replace.most come with directions.
start by unplugging all your power connectors inside the tower.then remove the four screws in the back your done.replace in reverse order.
your machine if it has a stock video card will not need more than a 500 watt power supplie,if you have upgraded the videocard you will need to check with the manufacterer of the card.
if your not sure whats wrong,you could always buy one from bestbuy.if thats not your problem, they will take it back no question asked.

Emachines W3052 Gets stuck on logo screen when starting up.


My computer does a similar thing, the issue with mine is the mother board which requires everything to be at a certain temperature. Let it run on the start screen for a couple minutes and hit the reset button. If it doesn't boot up you're going to have to get more involved with your PC. Turn off the power, unplug the cord from your power supply, open the case, look for the battery and the JP8 (CLRTC) jumper. Move the jumper from pins 1-2 over to 2-3, wait 30 seconds, and move the jumper back. Close the case, plug in the power cord, turn on your machine, and boot it up. If it still fails to boot check that all cables are securely attached (inside and out), check that the RAM is securely seated, and check the CMOS battery to be sure it is not dead. Beyond this you're looking at a component failure and should contact a repair tech.

P.S. if you feel up to it and can't wait for service, pull the hard drive out of the first computer and use it in a different computer. Be sure to unplug the hard drive from the second computer.

Tower problems


You may need to replace the cmos battery, its a cr2032 3v button cell
Make sure all your expansion cards and memory are reseated.
Make sure all cables are reseated.
your power supply could be bad

If that doesn't work try this


Here is my fix for the dell dimension 4400 amber light problem. It works!
replace cmos battery.
then unplug power cord form wall about 5-10 secs.
then plug it back in, wait 5 secs.
If amber light comes on, press and hold power button until it goes out.

(with light out, press and hold power button while amber light comes on and goes off again holding power button 2-3 secs after light goes out.) repeat whats in parenthesis until computer turns on
it should only take about 6, 7 tries.

After the computer boots, you may want to setup cmos or boot into windows.
After you shutdown, unplug power cord for 5-10 secs then plug it back in.
Press and hold the power button, computer should come on.
I found that's the only way to turn on the computer.
If you shutdown and don't unplug power cord the computer may not boot, mine didn't.
Strange I'd say

Montiors shut off


if the monitor goes into standbye when you plug it into the computer , it generally means there is NO signal coming from your video adaptor.
Plug the old monitor in , if it works, ide suspect the new monitor(s) are not working correctly.
if it doesnt work , you need to restart the computer in safe mode by repettitively tapping the f8 button as the computer starts, before it says "starting windows".
If you have a signal on your monitor in safe mode, then most likely you have a bad or corrupted video driver and it will need to be updated.
if you have no video in safe mode , you will need to remove the cover and physiclly check that all add-in card power cables and memory chips are squarly seatied in there slots. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE COMPUTER AND DISCHARGE ANY STAIC BUILDUP IN YOURSELF BY GROUNDING (TOUCHING) SOMETHING METAL BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE COMPUTER.

AFTER YOU CHECK THESE THINGS AND TRECONNECT THE POWER AND TRY TO START......POST AGAIN HERE

Check the power supply, if you don't hear any whir at all from the fan, power supply needs to be replaced.
