I cannot start my eMachine ET181003r. Every time I try to start, just hear humming sound for one second and then stop. I am not sure it is the FAN problem or not.

What you are most likely hearing is either one of the fans within the computer case, or a Hard drive. The problem could be many things and would most likely need to be inspected in person. I am sorry I cannot be of more help in this situation. Good luck!

How di do a hard reset on emachine t6410

A hard reset means that you press the reset button that is next to the power button on the computer case, as opposed to a software reboot, start > restart.

Emachine t5026 on and right off

Hi maybe you could try these steps I'm always doing when I experience the same problem as yours. This is only according to my experience fixing desktop computers.

1. Try to disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower then press the power button of your computer for 15 seconds to drain the remaining power.

2. Reconnect only the power button and the monitor cable then turn it back on. (If the same thing happened go to step 4 if not go to step 3)

3. ( From step 2 ) If it turned back on, most probably the problem is one of the devices that you just disconnected is causing the problem. Try to reconnect then one-by-one and each time you connect them turn on your computer, let's check if it's gonna turn on or not, just proceed until you finish connecting all of the device or until you pin point the root cause of the issue.

4. (From step 2 ) If it didn't turn on, Open up your computer tower and reseat the video card, then turn on the computer

5. If still the same problem, remove your hard drive and turn on your computer, if it turned on, meaning that the hard drive might be the problem, if not, just put it back in

6. If still the same problem, remove the memories from your computer, if you have more than one memory installed remove them all, test the first memory to the 1st slot and to other slots one-by-one, see if it turned on. Test the second memory and so on, to the 1st slot and so on. Do it only with one memory testing each memory.

7. Reseat the power cord coming from the power supply, the 21 pin and also the small one that is plugged into your motherboard,

8. Reseat the CPU

9. If all of those things failed, most probably that the power supply is causing the problem. it's also possible that the motherboard is affected, I hope not.

Emachine T6410 turns on but the screen says ''No Signal''

This problem is very common when you have a bad ram/ memory module or it is not making sufficient contact. Remove them and clean with a piece of dry cloth and reseated properly. Try it again. If it is still not coming on, the ram may be bad. Get them tested and replaced.

Emachine wont start

remove all external and internal peripherls.

example for external: mouse, monitor, keyboard, printer.

Internal: hard drive, memory modules, video cards, modem (if there's any), optical drive or dvd drives.

just leave the motherboard, power supply and processor intact, try turning on the computer with out those components mentioned. see if you get a beep sound before it turns off, but if not the most logical part that needs to be replaced on this type of problem is the power supply if that doesn't work the next thing to do is replace the motherboard. hope that helps

hit me back on the results. thanks!

Emachines shuts down by itself all the time

There are a lot of problems with Emachines as far as motherboards go. Since you've already replaced the power supply, it's safe to say that it's not causing your issue.

Since you seem comfortable with the inside of your machine, go ahead and take out all unnecessary components. If you've left your machine the way it was since you've bought it, start with the modem card that's in the bottom PCI slot. Often, those can cause issues with the computer not starting up, staying on, etc.

Also ensure that the machine is free of dust, and that all cables and connections are secure. Try not to let things float freely, and make sure you're plugging the machine into a surge protector, and not directly into the wall.

Emachine help

Hi. could be a few things
1st thing if theres no power going to the base unit, the power supply is gone will cost about £20 for a new one.
2nd thing it could be graphics card, memory needs refitting. ie take them out and refitting them usually fixes it.
theres a few other things it could be but less likely. i suggest trying the above..

have a great new year

Emachine wont start, just beeps

This is probably a problem with your DIMM(RAM) Did u recently install an extra RAM?If yes then remove it because the beep sound is due to the mismatch of frequency of two DIMM's. If not open your computer and check if the DIMM is loose just push it in and powerup your comp..Let me know if its fixed..

Could be a power Supply fail. It is well known in the trade that Emachine power supplies are very poor. A new power supply is easy to fit and cheap.
