EMACHINES SPECS FOR A T3025


OK
We are in the motherboard category, so I will just list the specifications of the motherboard,

The eMachines T3025 Desktop PC uses the FIC AU31 motherboard.
First International Computers (Inc)
Also known as the FIC K7M-NF18G,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/OEM/eMachines/manuals/index.html

In the list on the left side, click on the blue -> FIC AU31
This is a Zip file, and the motherboard user manual.

[ A Zip file is a compressed file. It is used to send large amounts of information, more easily.
The file needs to be decompressed, or 'unzipped' ]

After you click on FIC AU31, a small window will come up -
Opening AU31_manual.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; click in the small circle to the left of Save File.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(Yellow folder icon with a zipper on it. AU31_manual(1).zip, to the right)

In the next small window go to the far left, and click on -
Extract all files. (Under Folder Tasks subheading)

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
(That's it. DO NOT make any changes in the second small window.
Just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

In the last small window DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

You are now looking at a PDF file, of the motherboard user manual.

1) Processor Socket:
Socket A.
Also known as Socket 462,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_462

B) Processor (CPU) Support:
AMD Athlon XP, and AMD Duron processors.

AMD Athlon XP processors that are 1500+ to 2800+, and have either a Front Side Bus of 266MegaHertz, or 333MHz.

(Front Side Bus = FSB)

AMD Duron processors that are from 800MHz up to 1300MHz. (1.3GHz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athlon_XP#Athlon_XP.2FMP

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors

C) Motherboard chipset:
Nvidia Crush 18G, plus MCP AGP set,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NForce2

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

D) Ram Memory:

Two ram memory slots. (The ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor, {CPU}, is ram memory Slot 1. Also known as DIMM 1)

TOTAL amount of ram memory is 2GB.
EACH ram memory slot amount is 1GB.

Uses either DDR Sdram at 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
That is PC1600, PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200; respectively.

Bear in mind;
Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the Processor's FSB.

Ram memory MUST be;
Non-ECC
Unbuffered
Uses 2.5 Volts.

(JEDEC set the voltage standards for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts.
This means the default voltage for ram memory, set by the factory for this motherboard, is 2.5 Volts.

I don't see any features in BIOS Setup, for changing the voltage parameters, for Ram Memory.

You CAN set the FSB support for the Processor, however.
There is a jumper to the Left of the Northbridge chip, and bottom/left of the Processor socket.

Set the FSB support for the Processor, at either 100/133Mhz.
or 133/166MHz.
See Page 7 (Adobe Reader page number box at Top)

Bear in mind that AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
100MHz = 200MHz
133MHz = 266MHz
166MHz = 333MHz

Also on Page 8 - Install the CPU, there is a statement;

"The mainboard has built-in Switching Voltage Regulator to support CPU Vcore autodetection.

That is, It has the ability to detect and recognize the CPU voltage,
clock, ratio and enables users to set up the CPU frequency from the BIOS Setup Screen.

Users can adjust the frequency through Frequency / Voltage Control of the BIOS Setup Screen."

That should be in the -Advanced Features Setup - menu.
Page 21.
The manual doesn't discuss it on Page 21, or anywhere else through the manual. (To my knowledge)

You'll have to go into Advanced Features Setup menu, and look around.
Or we can go through this menu together, posting back, and forth in Comments.

E) Graphics expansion slot:

AGP technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/AGP-Bus-Tutorial/155

Can support AGP cards that are either AGP 4X, or AGP 8X.

Doubt you will find an AGP 4X graphics card, and if you do you don't want to use it, anyway.

Use AGP 8X graphics card. It will be 0.8 Volts.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

What's your problem?i have a dell optiplex 755 (tower).. it was working fine.. but one day when switched it on,, it doesnt behave normal.. and no screen was showing on the monitor.. the pc was sho


Welcome to the world of Windows 7. Don't you miss Windows XP? LOL, Windows 7 is a nightmare just like Vista.

Anyway I think it's your Memory. You mentioned moving the memory chips around, but you didn't mention trying one at a time. I think one of them is bad.

Memory ChipRemove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.Try just working with one of them in Slot 1 and swap them out in just Slot 1.

Oh, I just thought of something else, Maybe you have bad Capacitors on the motherboard. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case. Take a flash light and look inside the computer at the capacitors. They look like little Battery Towers. If any of them are spewing corrosion out of them, they can cause the computer to go crazy just like yours is doing.

RAM PROBLEM ON INSPIRON N4010


Go into your BIOS and set it back to factory default. After you do that look at the page that lists your memory and see if both 2GB memory sticks are recognized. If one of them still isn't being recognized. You'll have to physically go inside of the computer and look at your memory slots to see how much memory is in each slot. Its possible you might not see both 2 GB memory sticks. If you do see both then one of them might be bad and you would need to talk to that tech shop to get it replaced.

My hp mini 1000 wont boot up. when i turn it on it goes right to a screen that asks how i want to start up windows ( safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, and start windows...


hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps
contact me for any updates

Laptop wont start windows xp pro. goes to a blue


Take one memory stick out and test. Then do the other. Also checking each memory slot.

If not solved. When the computer starts, continually press F8 until you get startup menu- select SAFE MODE and fix the driver or software that is in startup
or

Roll back to last known configuration that worked.

While you are there- disable Auto Reboot on Failure.

I have windows xp 64bit and iam trying to use 2 slots of 2gb memory ddr2 and instead of 4gb memory iam getting as a result 2.43gb how can i solve this? i have an asus pb5


It looks a little low - but two possiblilites... the motherboard's chipset does not support more than 3GB of ram or you have not configured your ram correctly in your BIOS setup.

Restart computer and press whichever key it asks you to so you can go to Setup or BIOS config.

Look in the memory section, advanced chip set section or if necessary just go through all the options until you see the map memory hole... this allows the BIOS to see more memory.

But I think you will find it is your chipset. You could try flashing the BIOS to the latest version --- but that's another story.

Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

1. If you go in the setup menu.
2. Push the right button once and scroll down to the menu that says format.
3. It will ask you if you want to erase all data.
4. Select No and everything should be fine.

Constant restarting with my asus p5n32-sli deluxe motherboard


Hi,

These boards have reknown faults, usually regarding Bios errors and memory slots on the motherboard. try removing ram, and trying in different slots. Or if your using a matched pair of memory modules. use 1 only in slot A1 or B1. Finally is to check the bios setup, to ensure that all the bios defaults are set.

If this advice resolves your problems, please rate as fixya.

Many thanks mike @ compurepair.
