Re: start up

Try to boot in safe mode, if you still get nothing try a dirrent monitor, just to rule out the monitor then we can work on the computer.

Computer idles high then shuts down

When you say "idles high" do you mean you hear fans spinning faster or louder? If so, a fan spinning at higher than normal speeds is indicative of components/chips being run aggressively causing them to run at much higher temperatures. You may want to look into getting temperature monitoring software like CPU-Z to monitor the temperatures of your CPU and GPU. These components are the most common ones to be running at high temperatures. If any fan has failed on them the secondary fans (if there is one) will run at much higher speeds to compensate. Your PC may have a safety precaution to automatically shut down if certain temperatures are reached to prevent permanent damage to the components. Are you getting any blue screens before it shuts down?

My modem blinks off and on , when my pc is idle. Is that normal? and where could I buy a book on info on e-machines? When my monitor goes dark, then my modem starts blinking off and on. My computer is...

your modem is always talking to your service even when not connected to your pc it is just showing that it is working. Emachine manuals are a little hard to find, your best bet is to contact the store where you bought it, I know Best Buy used to sell the, they may have a manual, and you could try contacting emachines directly.

Emachine model #3410 when I try to turn it on it just beeps but nothing comes on the monitor won't even come on. What can I do?

Sounds like a memory error, try this:
With the PC unplugged remove any new memory you have installed then plug it back in a power on.
If you haven't added any new memory than you have a bad memory module. If there are two sticks remove one at a time and check to see if the system starts up(unplug pc before removing ram.) If it starts up than that is your problem. You can purchase new ram relatively cheap.

Still having trouble with EMachines T3882

I feel your pain. I finally moved my pc to a room with no windows! But seriously, try a different monitor first. See if you can borrow someone's to just try it before you do anything else. If that borrowed monitor works fine, then you know what the problem is. (Which I believe is the problem.) By the way, what started all of your problems?

T5082 keeps abruptly shutting down

Sounds like it may be overheating. If you get warning beeps on startup that sounds high, low, high low, it is overheating. you should inspect and clean the fan on the processor with a vacuum or compressed air ans also clean the power supply area with a vacuum to clear all the dust out. Inspect and wipe any other dust away from the motherboard and card inside. After restarting, it still goes off, check that the fan is running during startup. If not, the fan needs to be replaced at a nominal cost. This is an easy fix. If this all fails, let me know so we can troubleshoot everything together.
