Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

My E-Machines desktop just stopped working. A few weeks ago, my user was corrupted so I had to do a system restore to get to my data on hard drive. Did that and backed up to external drive and it worked fine for about two weeks. Just this week, I booted up, the screen had lines all over it and discoloration. Turned computer off and back on and now it won't boot. It just beeps when I try to power it on. Fan starts and CPU sounds as though it will power on, but all it does is beep. No display on monitor at all.

    Thanks for the response. I've been told a million different things. Best Buy said it sounded like the video card, a computer guy at Wal-Mart said it sounded like the mother board or a corrupted hard drive. Someone else said RAM. I had no idea where to start. Since I can't get it to boot at all, I don't know how to back up anything on the hard drive. I've got most of what I need on an external so it wouldn't be horrible if I lost any data. How do I reinstall the OS when it won't boot and I can't see anything on the monitor? All it does literally is beep when I try to turn it on. The fans start and it sounds like the CPU is running, but I can't see anything. Should I just put the disk in and then turn it on. Will it auto-run?

That beep means POST.. your computer hardware is fine .. please just re install the operating systemm... before that you might want to back up the hard drive data using bartpe or some tools similar to that.. if you dont have that expertise. just re install the operating system .. you should get back to work...

remember beep meaning POST meaning your hardware is fine.. the operating system is just corrupted / broekn

If it worked a few days ago then you could restore your system to a week ago and it should recognise again
i see no mention of what oprerating system you are using so I will assume XP.Vista or Windows 7

Using XP then follow these steps

Go to Start
Then All Programes
Then Accessories
Then System Tools
Then System Restore

This will give you a calendar to choose an earlier date
select one and click accept or continue and wait for the machine to shut down and restart
Once restarted a message should appear saying if the restore was completed.

Plug in your drive and test for fuctionality.

Let me know if you need the procedures for Vista or Widows 7 because they are a little more envolved.
All tho the steps are simalar I would much rather give you the correct infomation.
Hope this helps,Cheers Misterdj

My pc


Usually when it gets caught in a restart loop it means the Operating System is corrupt. Sometimes an .ini file is missing or corrupt, sometimes a hardware/software update causes a stop error. If the data on the hard drive is not critical use the e-machines recovery dvd and reload the OS. If you need all data on the hard drive I would suggest downloading a "Live CD" like the Linux distribution of "Puppy"
this will load an os into ram and you can then "mount' the hard drive and back up all data on the hard drive to cd/dvd.
