Question about E-Machines M5312 Notebook

No POST for eMachines M5312 laptop

I have an eMachines M5312 laptop that will no longer boot. When I push the power button, the main power LED and the CD-ROM activity LED come on and stay on. Otherwise there is no visible or audible sound that the laptop is operating. (i.e. the hard drive does not spin up, the LCD backlight does not switch on.) I'm assuming that there has been a hardware failure and that the CD-ROM light is some kind of indicator of what that error might be. Does anyone have any idea what the LED indicates? Anyone have any suggestions for reviving the laptop?

When i push the power button on my emachine the e screen flashes and it wont turn on what do i do to fix this?


If you just did a memory upgrade then the new chip is either not seated properly or the wrong type or even bad. Since it won't boot the problem is the ram in memory slot one. You need to rock it a bit to make sure it is seated before snapping it in. If it is the wrong speed or type you need to exchange it. It can also be bad but that usually means a counterfeit these days or you gave it a static shock and burned it out..

If you put your old ram back in you should be able to work again until you get the ram replaced.

Since reinstalling my emachine laptop it wont pick up any wireless network


The driver for the wireless is either missing or not working. Go to emachines/Gateway website and download the driver for your model/serial no.

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 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 Compac Armada M700 does not power up.


Had the same problem with My Compaq M700 No Boot Or Post. Battery Light Flashes 8 Times, Have to Wait 24 to 48 hrs sometimes longer to get Laptop to Start. Tryed the DC Converter Board Change No Difference same Problem. Noticed When Laptop Did Start Clock Time Was always a Little Off 2-4 Hours sometimes more. So Figure CMOS Problem With Time Issues. Read About Battery Memory Transitor Voltage spike Detection Issues Corrected With Newer Bios Flash at HP Supports. So I Flashed Bios With Latest 686h. During the First Boot After Reflash Battery LED Did flash No Start, After pushing the power button again it Started. And has Every since.So Far Laptop Now Boots Everytime and CMOS Checksum Seems To Keep Time Correct In Windows. The Bios Flash Corrects a Voltage Spike Detecting Transistor In The Charging Circuit. During First Start after flash Bios will run system test on the charging system and Correct CMOS. Worked for Me Hope this Helps a Few.
