Emachines T6524 won't reboot after automatic update. I get the windows screen when I turn it on, and everything seems fine, then the screen goes black and I get the no signal message.


You should try to boot in safe mode without the card removed..If this got on after an update it is possible (almost sure) it messed up with your graphic card driver and now it needs to be reinstalled > To do so ..try to boot in safe mode...To do that press the key indicated on screen for boot menu and choose safe mode ...usually it is f8 key or f12 ..depend on the model .If it seams not to be able to find the safe mode boot ..try to stop the computer by unplugging it ..This will force it to stop improper way ..and will show the screen for safe mode and other ways to boot-up .select the first safe mode ..and let it start ..This mode will not load any drivers and work just with the minimum needed for to start .Go to control panel ...remove programs ..and remove the graphic card driver from the list ..after that if you have the disk insert it and run the driver again in original ..If you do not have it look for it on the manufacturer's site ..and download it ..
If you need help with the driver ..let me know exact model of the computer ..and if it is not an on board card I need to know the exact model of the video card ..

Computer Restarts.


Most probably windows is generating an error and your computer is set to automatically restart when an error occurs. Try disabling automatic restart. right click my computer and select properties. click on the advanced tab and uncheck the automatically restart check box.

The reason why we need to do this is for us to see the actual error so that we will know what to do.

Have you flashed the BIOS with either the original factory settings or a recent update? Take careful note of exactly where the computer restarts, either upon Windows start-up or from a cold restart. If the former, then there is no substitute for a reinstall, which is also a good time to make all the settings in Windows just the way you like them. I have reinstalled Windows at least 20 times and always have had changes that I learned from the previous installation. If the computer is restarting before Windows boot, then it is in the BIOS. Reflash from the original or update based upon your needs which can be found in the revision notes for each update. There is only one other suggestion. If per-chance, you have an AMD based machine and have recently tried to install Windows XP SP3, you have been caught in a freakish occurrence. Allegedly, Microsoft has been working, endlessly it now appears, a fix but I would not wait for them. f you can, back up your data and attempt to remove the Service Pack (3). If you cannot remove it, go ahead and reinstall. Pray for a working backup or successful backup attempt. I would suggest both knees.

Need large disc support for old emachine, flash bios? or try restore cds?


Hi,
flashing a bios, can render your machine/motherboard useless.
You should always ensure any bios download is from a trusted source. if you experience a power failure, or an incomplete bios file. your computers as good as dead.
Windows 95/98 only supports disk drives to a certain capacity. if you updated to windows 2000/ME/XP your problems may be solved. I,d certainly try that first.
Bios flashing Last resort, even after finding a reliable bios update. also ensure the bios file is 256mb-512mb or equivalent. as this is standard bios file size.
Finally check that your hard-drive does not have a jumper ( Small white/black ) plastic block restricting the drives registered size.
When you install windows XP, it will ask you if you wish to enable LBA ( large block Allocation ) Select Y ( yes )
