    When installing a USB flash stick into either the front or back ports then a new USB device is recognised but not as a flash drive. Instead of then using standard XP drives which are use with this device on other XP machines, it tries to install ned drivers, but fails to find any suitable. This is the same on all ports and also any USB flash device.

    • I know that they use to work! Now they don't ! How do I reset them on my system!

    I have the same problem and it would seem that the updated BIOS, A03, do not address the front USB ports. The old one did, it's in the manual for this unit in the BIOS section. One would think that going back to A02 would solve this?

Is it just Memory Stick, or everything that you plug into USB?
Try following:

  1. plug in other USB device into ports
  2. if it does not detect any USB device on any port on your computer
  3. if both front and back USB do not work it may be taht USB is turned off in BIOS, or USB driver is corupted
  4. If you have front USBs and they just do not work there is wire connecting them to the motherboard since it may be loose, if connection is OK than they are dead.
  5. If just back USB do not work than they are dead>

I have an emachine T5026. Emachine tech swears this machine only supports pc2700 ram but the stickers on the factory installed ram says pc3200 256mb x 2 so i bought 2 memory masters pc3200 1gb x 2 sticks....


PC3200 is backwards compatible with PC2700. Meaning you can install PC3200 into your motherboard but it won't run any faster than would PC2700, however it will not cause any harm and should work fine.

Emachine's would say you need PC2700 most likely because they're trying to sell you some.

One of your new memory modules or the memory slots on your computer may be defective. I recommend installing a single stick of memory and booting your system. If it is successful then shut it down, disconnect the power and install another stick. Boot again and keep doing so and by process of elimination identify the bad memory stick or the bad memory slot.

This is the "likely" cause and isn't too uncommon.

Good luck.

I ADDED NEW MEMORY AND THE COMPUTER WONT BOOT I JUST KEEPS RESETING AND DOING THE SAME THINGHOW CAN I FIX THIS.


There are several things that could be wrong here: 1. You didnt install the memory correctly, open it back up and remove the memory sticks and reinstall them 2. Try putting only one memory stick at a time, maybe one memory slot is bad. 3. One of your memory sticks could be defective 4. You got the wrong memory sticks for your computer and they are incompatible with your pc, contact your computer manufacture to find out the exact memory sticks you need.
Please leave me a good rating.

What are the slots on the front panel used for?


Those are card reader slots.

Various types of memory cards can be used.

A memory card, (Or can be stated as Flash Memory Card), takes the place of the old Floppy Disks, for one.

It is digital. There is no disk inside, just hardware electronic components.

Due to the size of trying to explain every type of memory card that is available, and the memory card itself, I would like to give you this link,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_card

Here it explains the basic format of a memory card.
You can click on the titles of the memory card/s, (in blue), to get a deeper explanation, of that particular memory card.

The specifications for your eMachines ET1810 Desktop PC, state that you have the following card reader slots for,

1.Compact Flash (Type I and II)
2.CF Microdrive
3.MultiMedia Card (MMC)
4.MMCmobile
5.MMCmicro
6.Reduced-Size MultiMedia Card (RS-MMC)
7.Secure Digital Card (SD)
8.miniSD Card
9.xD-Picture Card
10.Memory Stick
11.Memory Stick PRO
12.Memory Stick PRO Duo
13.Memory Stick Micro (M2)

Look above each slot for an abbreviation.
For example on my computer,

I have one card reader slot that is approximately 1 inch wide.
It looks like a T that is stretched out.
It has SD/MMC/SM/MS/MS-PRO, above it.

This means that the card reader slot will support, (Use),
[In order as printed above],

1.SD Card - Secure Digital Card
2.MultiMedia Card.
3.Smart Media card
4.Memory Stick
5.Memory Stick Pro

I have one more card reader slot. It has CF-Microdrive above it. A wider slot than the above, and looks like a upside down stretched out T.

This means of course that it uses, (Supports), a Compact Flash Microdrive card

I've tried to explain the various card reader slots, on your computer's front panel, without being too technical, or being offensive in nature.

If you want, I can explain as technical as you wish, or simplify my solution more.

This is the Specifications page for your eMachines ET1810,

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/emachines/et/et1810/ET1810sp2.shtml

Scroll down, and look to the right of the heading - Card Reader.
These are the cards your computer supports, (Uses)

Looking at the main support page for your eMachines, it looks as though you have four card reader slots.
Three grouped together on the left side, and two in the middle.

The two slots to the far right are USB ports, with probably a headphone jack port, and a microphone port to the right of them.

This page gives a little more detail, as to what your card reader slots support,

I inserted my memory stick and an icon popped up and I click it since it said overloaded. It gave me an option to reset it, then removable disk is gone. so I can't use my USB now.


Do you have many other items plugged into additional USB ports? You can "overload"power on a USB hub, i would try to leave your memory stick plugeed in, and restart your computer to see what happens. That or unplug other USB devices that may be in use such as scanner, printer, camera, etc. and try it with those unplugged. A longterm solution if this works is to pick up a powered usb hub, you can pick one up online for around 15-20 bucks.

Try putting your memory stick on a usb port on the back of the cpu. It may work. Usb ports on the front of the cpu and card reader may not work with all memory sticks
