The CMOS Battery on the motherboard may need replacing. Also double check the monitors ok (Simplest thing first)

SOURCE: Dell optiplex will not recognize hard drive

Is it SATA or IDE? Have you tried another cable? If it's IDE, have you checked the jumper settings (usually Cable Select is easiest)?

SOURCE: eMachine T6522 monitor says

This could be an issue of a video card gone bad. I have experienced the same issue firsthand. This could also mean that no RAM is installed. If you have been using this computer previously, the second option is probably not even an option.

If you have another computer available, please try plugging the monitor in to that machine to test. If it works, your Video Card is more than likely toast.

But not to worry, you should be able to find a new card for that machine. I believe it will be a PCI Video Card, which may run you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on what you purchase. Please consult with eMachines before ordering a new card. Some will not work with your machine.

I hope this helps you out. Have a great day and please don't hesitate to ask any further questions regarding this issue.

SOURCE: Dell OptiPlex GX620 starts up then shuts down repeatedly

Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe

Emachine T 5212, when i turn it on,, a siren sounds,,then computer shuts off


In your computer (as well as other gadgets), the battery powers a chip called the Real Time Clock (RTC)chip. The RTC is essentially a quartz watch that runs all the time, whether or not the computer has power. The battery powers this clock. When the computer boots up, part of the process is to query the RTC to get the correct time and date. A little quartz clock like this might run for five to seven years off of a small battery. Then it is time to replace the battery.

This does not explain why your computer would not boot, however. You would expect the computer to boot fine but have an incorrect time and date. The reason your computer would not boot is because the RTC chip also contains 64 (or more) bytes of random access memory (RAM). The clock uses 10 bytes of this space, leaving 54 bytes for other purposes. The BIOS stores all sorts of information in the CMOS RAM area, like the number of floppy and hard disk drives, the hard disk drive type, etc. If the CMOS RAM loses power, the computer may not know anything about the hard disk configuration of your machine, and therefore it cannot boot.

Many more modern computers are not quite so dependent on the CMOS RAM. They store the settings innon-volatile RAM that works without any power at all. If the battery goes dead, the clock fails but the computer can still boot using the information in the non-volatile RAM area. I would change the battery and make sure unit is unplugged and my other hand is touching the metal frame on the computer to stop static discharge. Blow out the inside of the computer completely.Start computer with case off and make sure all the fans run and don't sound like a siren.Replace anything not running.It may not boot if the BIOS can't see the hard drives. You might have to start computer and watch the screen and when it asks you to hit a key to get into like the bios do it and see if you can reset it. If nothing seems be running right maybe the power supply went out they are real cheep at Tiger Direct.

ER 1402-05 Upgraded to 4GB RAM and 500 GB Samsung HDD Everything working fine for about a month. Now on Boot, BIOs will not detect my C Drive - not sure what to do next


Try looking in your BIOS, look for anything that indicates that it see's your hard drive at all. You should be able to see the hard drive size from the BIOS, if not, check the power and data connections inside your computer. Does the hard drive power up? If you don't feel it running, it could be that it has died.

Power to monitor but no images just ALL black


Hi,
For this issue you can try following

  • check if tower has power or not if there is no power on tower then it is a power supply
  • If the computer has power restart the computer and tried to get in BIOS if it has no display it could be video card.
If you can see the BIOS screen
  • make BIOS default.
  • reseat the ram
  • video cable

I need to reset the BIOS on a w2260 model. cant


The BIOS is the "Basic Input/Output System".
It is stored on a chip on your motherboard.
Generally, the BIOS _never_ needs to be updated ("flashed").

You can change hardware (amount of RAM, add/remove add-in audio/video/network cards, new hard-drive) and the BIOS will detect the new & changed devices, without needing to be "reset".

If you can press DELETE and get to "BIOS setup", then re-enable that "BIOS Guardian", save changes, and exit from setup.

So, exactly what "prompt" are you getting?

I have the same problem with my T3120 emachine.


could be a 'gray market' machine! i've run into this before- basically 'your motherboard/bios' doesn't exist- good luck! boot up should show what your bios version is, look for that, rather than your motherboard version!
'my computer'- 'properties'- should have your bios info on it. use that info to find updated 'flash', if it's available.
good luck!

CD/DVD drive on e-Machine T3120 reads disc, but won't write disc!


You can try going to Emachines website and update the drivers for that drive. If that doesnt work, it is possible the drive itself is going bad.

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.
