Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet
Hi there i have an emachine 8230 and have been advised to try a new psu to see if this is the reasone my pc wont load up or go in to the bios page.
i have tried diff memory/graphix card with no luck can you please recomend a psu that is compatiable with this model machine
Firstly lets think why a Working pc would no longer BOOT. The boot process then. a pc starts the bios which POST's. this results in ONE BEEP which might be followed by messages(if you get several beeps then they are like morse code long/short and count out an error code). when you get your ONE BEEP the pc is working. when it then HANGS(appears to do nothing) its usually because of either a) the cd drive is duff so disconnect its cables. b) the hard drive is duff so disconnect its cables c) the hard drive hasnt quite died yet but has some very slow sectors and is making the Clackety Clack of the heads recalibrating every few seconds. d) there could be a a gpu card bios glitch and your pc is running but you just have a blank screen. some hints then 1) never start removing parts as that corrupts the CMOS(the battery backed up configuration for your BIOS) so you may need to clear your cmos. 2) never play with the idea of changing ram sticks as people usually end up putting them in any old slot(which may result in a non working pc). make sure a PAIR is fitted in slots 0/2 and a separate matching pair in 1/3 slots not in slots 0/1 which is two half pairs. Other factors. 1) a short circuit. your PSU has built in protection, if the psu fan(inside case of the psu) turns and kicks back and immediately stops you have a short circuit and its cuts the power to avoid a fire/meltdown, which could be caused by high wattage gpu(>60 watts) without its extra power cables fitted or wrongly connected front usb cables or removing a mainboard and fitting it into a new box where the board has its support posts NOT lined up with the holes fro the screws so the post is touching underside of the board circuits. hope some of that helps.

SOURCE: Not reading my memory card
You may have bent or broken contacts inside the card slot. It's tough to see, but if you look deep inside the slot, you may notice a contact bent or broken. If you're not able to see any damage inside, try taking a cotton swab with some alcohol (isopropyl, not rubbing or drinking type), and cleaning the contacts.

Have you checked how the BIOS is setup to recognize the added video card? You may have to change a setting in there. It could be that it thinks the old card is still there or you may need to uninstall the old cards drivers and then install the new cards drivers after reboot.

SOURCE: pny micro sd memory card
Most PCs are like that. I don't know what it is but the computer won't do it for mine neither. To put music and such on you sd card for your phone you must format the card while it's in your phone. Goto setting, Memory, Card memory, then click on opions. From there it will say "Format Card". Do it and the lock code is the last four digits or your phone number. After that's done to load music and such you put the sd chip onto you computer and transfer music to the folder on the sd card called "My_music", pix to "My_pix", and so on....
