Question about E-Machines T2682 PC Desktop
System running fine for over a year, I had replaced bad MB and Power Supply year ago,,, just sitting there as if it went into screen saver mode with video monitor lite going yellow, and the HD lite stays on yellow,, I tried to see if could access files on the system for other computer, no good,, my messengers lost connection also..It will reboot and run normal for a short period of time which seems to get shorter with each reboot.. also,, must hold on button in to get system to shut down so I can reboot? Not sure where to start? I do have a pci video card on top of the on board video,, thinking I should pull video card and go with on board video first to see what happens,,not sure if this could be a memory issue? cpu over heat? any to get me started would be great... John
The first thing you should do is remove the video card and try to boot
the PC using the onboard video (video on the Motherboard) and see if
that solves the problem. If it does, try putting the video card back
in in a DIFFERENT PCI slot and try it again. Sometimes Windows loses
its marbles about
cards inserted into PCI slots. My nieces eMachine loses its marbles
over the Wireless LAN card about once a year, so I just move it to a
different slot (swap it with the phone modem card). If that makes it
flaky again, try updating the video card drivers. If it doesn't help,
your video card is shot.
If it isn't the video card, try taking out one memory chip at a time and booting with the first one in. If that doesn't do it, swap the memory chip with the other one and try booting it again. If needed, replace bad chips....
After that, it is probably the power supply or the MB itself. Swap out the power supply first. If it is not the power supply, then it is probably the MB, and you are SOL.
