Step 1: A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately. Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGp5AiyJInI repair memory slot
(No, not advertising. Just a good photo of the motherboard, if you slightly scroll down)
Look at the chart below the photo of the mobo. (MOtherBOard) Expansion Capabilities:
A) Two PCI slots (Two PCI Conventional bus connectors. Long white slots)
B) One PCI Express x1 bus add-in card connector.
(PCI Express x1 slot. The longer PCI-Express x16 slot is on top. Then the two long white PCI slots. Then the shorter black PCI-Express x1 slot)
You can use a Sound Card in an available white PCI slot, or if the black PCI-Express x1 slot is open.
Yes, I know, I'm getting to it, lol!
The Onboard Audio -> Intel High Definition Audio, doesn't have an output mixer feature.
My onboard audio - Realtek, (And on an Intel mobo), does.
[ Intel 915G (Southlake) motherboard. Has a Realtek audio chip, ALC860. I use the Realtek Audio Manager. Has Sound Effects, and an equalizer. What happened from the Intel 915G to the Intel 945GCL INTEL? Sheesh! ]
Suggest this if you have an open, available PCI slot,
But it could be just a Driver or Software issue. I would update the Audio Driver... go to: http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html and locate your PC Model the Download the Audio Driver. It shows 2... use the first one. If that fails try the second one... the second one will write over the first...
If both fail... then if you want to do it youself... head to a PC store. If you are mechanically inclined and can read directions... I would try it youself. You will need a PCI Audio Card... Install it at the very bottom or last Slot in the System. Of course Power unplugged and again follow the instructions.
I'm sorry to say this but your hard drive may be faulty and need a replacement. Your files might still be retrievable but you will need to take it to a repair center to get it retrieved or plug it as an external hard drive and try to retrieve data yourself. But nevertheless, it seems like your hard drive gave in and will need to be replaced with a new one..
