Media test failure

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

When i try to trun on my computer the fan doesnt stop so nothing goes to the screen

Sounds like the power supply or the motherboard. If you have another computer available, you can test the power supply. Just "borrow" the power supply from the other computer. If it still won't come on, then the motherboard might be bad and you'll need replacement.

If you swap the power supply and the motherboard is bad, you will not hurt the working power supply. The motherboard is already dead and won't feed back to the working power supply.

Also, if you have flashed your BIOS recently and it has not completed successfully, you might have a dead motherboard and you will need to replace it. You would know if you flashed or updated your BIOS chip.

Emachines t3958, bad ram, green stand-by only no boot

Are you saying you bought 2 more machines to fix the problem? I don't understand. Do you have the manual for the machine. How long did your system run before a Ram stick went bad? What brand and size are your Ram sticks. Are they identicle? As far as Clearing BIOS, your manual should show you the jumper position to do this, which you will leave in this ( drain ) position for a minute. Powering up from here you need to immediately hit a key to send you to BIOS most are <del> or F10 or alt esc. You must look in your manual for this and then all your boards should work. If you need my help in finding your manual, give me all numbers pertaining to your machine.

I have a Emachines w4682 and the monitor was showing no signal when I turned computer on. I hooked up a different monitor and that one worked so I re connected the original monitor and it worked I then got...

Possible reasons are bad power switch, bad power supply, bad motherboard, bad memory , device card is not seated properly. Suggest replace power cord to see if still no power, also you may want to remove cover and make sure all your memory and device cards are seated corrrectly. If you get a amber light at the power button, bad motherboard is likely cause

Hi... When I push the power button on my HP Desktop, just the amber light in the button comes on....nothing else. No noises (hard drive spinning-up, fan, etc)...nothing.

The amber light is signifying an error. Most common are the power supply, video card, or RAM. Worst case is motherboard has went bad. Try reseating the RAM without installing the video card, if it boots then it's the video card. Replace the bad part & you should be up & running again. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

EMachine T3406 wont boot

is there a post beep when the pc is switched on. check the memory if it is a beep beep beep sound , also disconect the hard drive, dvd drive, floppy, and any usb devices and see if it boots up. if that fails it does seem like the mother board, also check the cpu fan has it stoped. also find out the power switch conector on the mother board, from the base unit switch to the mother board. also chech the power connector from the power supply to the mother board , on newer boards there are two that go to the mother board its self , a big one and a very small one .

Emachine t2642 power supply

Apparently this model has a bad motherboard, which manifests as a power warning and eventually a refusal to boot up. You can replace the power supply (as far as I know, any generic one 250-watt or better will work) but it's unlikely to help. You can buy a new motherboard (and new power supply, if you want to) direct from eMachines, but it's also likely to fail pretty soon. Your best bet is to get a new computer (NOT an eMachines one) and put your hard drive in as a slave so you can get your data off.
