Question about E-Machines T1742 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Very slow processing time

I reused a e-machine T1742 that my daughter had not been using for sometime. I gave it to my mother to use after I got her dsl service. The processing time (I think that is the term I want to use) terribly slow. When I turn it on it takes a while to get to the point where I can go online. Also when I click on anything it takes forever for the page to load online or offline. It can take up to a couple of minutes for it to process after I click on something

    Did that change or has it always been like that. Does any other computer work better on that particular DSL line?

You should put Ubuntu on it. It's one of the fastest and easiest operating systems to use and best of all it's FREE. It's perfect for someone who will probably only use the internet and other small programs.

The bottom feed of my Elna 9000 which I bought about twenty years ago will not stay up, the plastic switch at the back of the machine appears to be broken.

The only to find out is to ask your service technician. Sometimes replacement parts are still available or they can pillage some older machines to find what is needed.

Someone gave me a emachinine tower model t1742 no cords

I have purchased many different computer cords from stores, flea markets, and yard sales. Sometimes, you can find a small computer repair shop in your local area that will help you with the cords you might need and if you are really lucky, they might give you one or at least have a used cord to sell you. I know power cables can run 10 to 25 dollars retail, but I have purchased them for a little as a dollar from yard sales.

Most motherboard used the button pin type of battery for the bios. Specifically, your board used the CR2032 , 3VDC battery. Just be sure that your PC is off when replacing the battery.
Good luck.

My new battery won't take a charge. HP Dv1170us

Are you sure everything is plugged in correctly? Look on the cord and make sure there are no "shorts" in it becuase sometimes it can have a "short" circuit to it, even if it's new!
