    Thanks for the reply, I have had some issues with Emachines in the past...Motherboard on one and power source on the other, so bad capacitors would not surprise me. I was going to open chasse see if maybe heat is building inside and that is causing trouble even though the fans sound like they are performing fine....I will do the inspection and post an update.

    Well, Capacitors are fine with no visible leakage or failure. Lots of Dust, but temperature good inside. ...So now I am...I hate this...doing a Full Format and re-install...Emachines.......

    Some will state that you have a software issue. Corrupted system files, (Operating System) I would like you to check the capacitors on your motherboard, instead. (Computer unplugged from power. Touch the metal frame of the open computer case also, to relieve your body of Static electricity), BEFORE reaching inside your computer) What you are looking for: Also look for seepage of a yellow/brownish ooze, coming out of the top of the capacitor/s, and/or bottom of the capacitor/s.

This could be due to overheating. Check to make certain all the fans are turning especially the CPU fan. If you are not tech savvy then do not attempt to remove the case cover. Let a professional do it. Messing around in there could cause you to wind up replacing your machine.

Top Loading Washer stops abruptly at end of spin cycle or when lid is opened.

The ddc may not have been installed correctly. The tranny shaft and motor shaft should be flush with the new coupling gears.
If you laid the machine down to do the repair you caused additional problems with other components.

Emachine T5212 will not boot up unless operating system disc in used. Get direction to enter boot disc.

Restart, press DEL to enter BIOS and change the boot priority/sequence to boot from your HDD, second choice will be from CD-ROM and last from floppy. Next after saving the changes allow it to boot normally....sodeep.
