Question about E-Machines -T1840-CELERON-1.8GHz,40GB Desktop Computer System (1000000127)

1 Answer

Won't power on while keyboard is plugged in.

A few weeks ago I was playing on my computer and the keyboard fell off the desk and it pulled the wire. Didn't think that was such a big problem at the time but it instantly restarted my computer but it wouldn't boot up properly. When i disconnect my keyboard from my computer it will boot up normally though.
I have no idea why its like this but I would like to have my computer back. Hope someone can help. Thanks!!

Sounds like you did some damage to your keyboard cable. Try using another one if you have a spare or barrow one from a friend and try it on your computer. Make sure you connect it before you start up your computer. If it works fine then replace your keyboard. Fairly cheap fix... Good luck

Dell Dimension 3100 won't boot; keyboard fell off the table onto the tower; am getting 1-3-2 beep codes. Is this fixable?


Just because they hit the tower should not have hurt anything.

But, you should turn it off, pull the power plug, then hit the power button, then again and make sure the lights don't turn on or flash.

This make's sure that all the power is gone from the motherboard.

Before you touch the inside, make sure you touch metal, so you don't static shock the motherboard.

Now open the the side up. I would remove the two power connectors, one should be a 20-24 pin and another 4 pin.

Reset them to make sure they didn't come lose.

Check the HDD, hard drive plugs, fan plugs, the CPU fan plug.

Then check the monitor connection, and any on the back.

Try the monitor on another PC, or a monitor from another PC on this PC.

A hard shock to the power supply unit (PSU ) can kill it, it can still turn on the lights but not have the voltage to run it.

If you do all this and are safe and careful checking inside and out, then you might have to take it to someone who can test it.

You can also download the manual so you know what it looks like inside the PC and what the motherboard looks like and how you would set it up when new.

Good luck.

Usually when you hear long beeps coming from your computer it telling you that there is hardware loose . You may have knocked something loose. Check cd roms , ports and cards , memory to make sure they are fitted in correctly . good luck

Hello..just moved my desk top to new desk..everything is fine..but mouse won t work..while it was unplugged i cleaned keyboard..monitor with soft cloth..can u tell me why my mouse won t work


IF it's a serial mouse (meaning green round connector) it's probably not plugged in correctly. Now these are not plug and play so you need to reboot your system in order for it to work. Try that.

No start up - constant fan - no mouse or keyboard working


Update drivers for the mouse and keyboard. I also recommend installing "Glary Utilities" which is a free registry optimezer and corrects and registry errors in the system

there may be a software update for the powertrain control module for mis-fire monitor. check with your local dealer. but if thats not the case,these engines are known at least in my experience of having the heads crack between the valves and cause mild mis-fires. try compression testing all the cylinders and performing a leakdown test on them as well.

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

Wont post.


Try a few things for me OK? From what you typed, turned on the psu "the toggle switch on the psu", pc seemed to be starting up. I need you to keep the toggle switch on the power supply in the on position. Press and hold the start button on the PC case to shut it down. Give it a few seconds & power up by pressing the power switch on the case. Notice a differance? Next, unplug everything connected to the pc expect the monitor, mouse & keyboard. Try to boot. Still no? Remove the side of the case exposing the board. Turn the psu off by flipping the toggle switch on the psu, wait till the green light on the board goes out. Grab the Mb ( I know it's tight in there) and see if you can move the board in any direction. Not loose? Re-check all data & power connections for a solid connect. Re-check your case to Mb connections. Also check the PSU, there is a red slide switch it should be set to 115v. Post your findings..
