Question about E-Machines T4155 PC Desktop
A few years back, I bought a secondary hard drive and tried to install it. I followed the directions and my computer never came back on.
I just tried to install the original hard drive, alone, and still have the same problem. The fans are running. I can hear the hard drive. I believe I have all the cables connected properly. I even reinstalled my old video card, in case its a video problem, but still nothing.
The monitor still turns on, when the video is unplugged, it says "NO SIGNAL", normally.....but when I plug it in, it goes blank and the LCD goes orange, as if the computer is off.
I don't know what's going on. Maybe something is not connected right? Are there any cables I may have disconnected or reconnected wrong?
I appreciate any help.
See the hardrive cables and also check that jumpers in hard drive just connect one hard drive at a time first ok set jumpers to master settings and then try if the problem persists
Try changing RAM it is the main culprit if ur computer is unable to boot and ur vga is ok as u told me
pls do rate me if it helps or fixed ur prob

Basic jumper settings for Maxtor ATA Hard Drives
Thank you for purchasing your new ATA hard drive from Other World Computing! Please
review these jumper settings prior to installing your new hard drive into your computer.
You may want to review more detailed information about the installation process, or
the location and configuration of your existing internal ATA drive before proceeding.
Your manual that came with your computer can be of assistance in both of these
A few notes about installing an ATA hard drive into your existing system:
Your existing drive is normally configured one of two ways, Master (single drive), or
Cable Select. You will want to determine this before installing your new drive, the easiest
way is to remove the existing drive from your system and visually inspect it's hard drive
jumpers. Most hard drives have a schematic either silk screened onto the case of the
drive, or the schematic is on a label near the jumper pins. If you have difficulty locating
this information, visit the hard drive manufacturer's website.
If your existing hard drive is configured as "Master", then set your new hard drive
to "Slave". If your existing drive is set for "Cable Select", then set your new drive to
"Cable Select" also. You can change the existing jumper settings on the original drive
to suit your needs, but we recommend following these instructions first to verify proper
operation of the new hard drive.
Installing jumpers on the new drive is a simple process, follow the schematic to
configure your drive.
Please note the configuration of
the internal ATA cable already
installed in your existing system.
If your internal cable is configured
differently than pictured here,
you may want to replace it before
installing a new hard drive to
achieve maximum performance.
