My emachine is beginning to take a longer time to come back after the screen times out and goes black. Also, when I tried to install a game or program from a disc, the screen goes black and I have to press the escape key to get the visual back.

I would suggest that you take this case seriously and perform some normal maintenance checks like these ones that I would tell you.
First, open my computer, right-click on your hard drive, and select properties, then select tools tab, then under the tools tab, you should see error-checking, then click on "Check Now", then select the 2tabs under this and click on start.
It will tell you that it will be done at the next system restart, so click on OK. and restart your system.
Next, Defragment your hard Drive, by going to
the same place, and instead of error checking, you should click on Defragment Now.
All these things are going to take you a lot of time to finish but I'll tell you the truth...they are worth it.
After all these, you can now optionally improve the performance of your system by going to this place : Right-Click on my computer, Properties, then Click on Advanced, then under the performance tab, click on settings, and select 'adjust for best performance'.
This will change the appearance of your system and significantly increase your system speed.
Hope this gives you a great solution.
Goodluck!

What makes my phone screen go black and go back to lock screen every time I tried to do anything such as message, make a call, or get online?


Sounds like a virus type of thing. If your son downloaded a game you need to uninstall that game and then you need to run a virus type scan to remove any thing that is left behind from that game.

Your computer -may- be out of date. The visual hardware need to run windows 7 must be up to date, and not made before 2003. Depending on how old your computer is, Windows 7 may or may not run on it. It may also just as well be a problem with your monitor. Is your monitor very old?

After click on the game title. screen goes black


It is normal for the screen to go black for a couple of seconds once you click on the game title.
Although, for some games, the screen goes black for a longer period of time than other games. Another important factor that determines for how long the screen goes black is the health of your disc.
First of all, it is advised that you exercise patience and wait for a couple of minutes before trying anything. During this period of time, the game is trying to load all the necessary files required to run the game.
On the other hand, if the disc you are trying to play is not very clear or has scratches on its surface, this could make the game go on a black screen for longer than normal. So to prevent this from happening, make sure that the surface of our disc is very clean and is free from dust or scratches.
If you wait for about 5 minutes and it still doesn't work, then you can try ejecting the disc to see if it automatically quits the game and returns to the home screen. If it does, this means that the disc is probably bad and you are advised not to try loading it anymore as it could cause damage to your console.
Although you can try resetting the console if it still behaves this way before you confirm that the disc is bad. Below is the instruction oh how to do this.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using Fixya.

Hi there - this appears to be a bug, but in fact is not. In the "maintain your manual" challenge in district 2, if you drop the manual (meaning, losing your balance and having the skateboard drop back down to 4 wheels on the ground) the challenge simply resets to the beginning with the clock resetting to 2 mins. Rock back and forth on the balance board to keep your balance. As long as you maintain it for 50 yards, the screen will not go blank and you will pass the challenge! If you drop the board back down before 50 yards, the screen goes black and the challenge resets.

Screen goes black and pc won't re-boot


You need to update your video card or your drivers software. Another possibility is you do not have enough RAM Memory installed. Look into how much memory you have and see if you need to upgrade it. I hope this helps.

Have T5026 emachine with boot problem


Sounds to me that theres a good chance that the windows files are corrupted. It is possable that its could be hardware, but software is free so start there.

If youve got the recovery disks then put them in and restart. Just attemp a repair of your windows. its worth a shot. you may need to go into your boot setting to boot from disks.

if you havnt got them and you havnt got warrenty them youll have to format the drive and install a fresh copy of windows, and find all the drivers from the emachines after.

1st get all the stuff off the drive that you need/want, take the drive out and connect it to another pc or use some sort of external connection.

then find a copy of windows that matches the licence sticker on the case of your pc. throw the hdd back in and boot the disk, format the drive and install windows.

youll have to get the drivers from

My moniters screwed


Sometimes this is due to graphics cards, but most of the time it is due to drivers. If it does not happen when you are using your PC for other things the problem probably just lies with the graphic card, driver, and this particular game or any game similar. Drivers are the most notorious! Check your requirements on the game for graphics cards recommendations! Let me know!
