Re: emachine 5210

Hi, The only way I can think off here is to re-install the O/S. Assuming its XP then run your XP disk and as setup runs choose the SECOND PROMPT TO RUN A REPAIR TO WINDOWS. If you choose the first prompt It wont do anything, if you choose to just reinstall you will loose all your data. the second prompt will appear to completely reinstall but you will save your existing files. Goodluck mistyman

I put new ram in my emachine 5210 why won't it work

If it was working before you put the ram in, then the ram you put in is the problem. Maybe you put in a ram that is not compatible or is bad.

Put the old ram back in to see if it works.

Go to 4 All Memory to make sure you get the memory that is for your computer.

Emachines 5210 wont start up - monitor goes to power saving mode - no beeps but all fans & mobo powere active

Sounds like you have some type of hardware failure. If you are comfortable taking apart the system, start by removing the memory. If this system beeps then you know that your motherboard is still OK. But right now I am thinking that you may have a faulty motherboard.

Is the keyboard a USB Keyboard or PS/2... If it is a USB keyboard try plugging it into a front USB port and see if it works. If it does you might have a lose usb cable going to the back of the computer.

Emachine t3092, no video, can't find certain desktop files

If they're not on the drive, they're not on the drive. Your only other option is to search the free disk space for the remainder of those files. For that you can use the free trial of O&O Unerase Personal. I hope you get those files, never fun to lose memories over a peculiar computer issue.
