Well, if you cannot get anything to happen except for hearing the fans spin up, then my guess is that the motherboard is probably bad, which is a fairly common thing for eMachines. You should at least get the POST (power on self test) screens, usually black with gray/white text, showing how much RAM there is and what drives are installed, etc, etc. I have unfortunately come across several eMachines where the motherboard had died within a 3-5 year time period, probably due to the cheaper components they use.

Beyond that, I know that on many eMachines that the restore CDs only contain the eMachine software and drivers, and not the copy of Windows itself. This is because they would put the original Windows installer and files into a separate partition on the same hard drive. (I've always hated it when manufacturers do this, because when the drive dies, so does the entire OS, forever.) So, in short, if your system restore CDs do not include a full version of Windows on one of the discs, then you are pretty much up a creek without a paddle.

Android vimicro logo stuck on screen


ANDROID Tablet Freezes at Android startup screen

For Superpad VI - 10.1" Android Version 4.03, this worked for me!

1. Press & hold START button
2. When "VIMICRO" appears, Then Press & Hold the MENU button
3. The Android System Recovery <3e> Menu should appear
4. Scroll down using the Volume Key to "wipe data/factory reset"
5. Press HOME Button
6. Scroll down to "Yes - delete all user data"
7. Press the HOME Button
At this point the system will do a recovery and hard start, and will be on "reboot system now
8.Press the HOME Button
Your system should reboot normally, but you will need to enter all new data, as it has been wiped clean.

I just unlocked my T509 and am currently using an att sim card. It works fine, but sometimes it will freez up and i either have to take the battery out, or hold the end button to turn it off, and then...


It might the problem of the software installed in the model...u will need to flash the handset(format) and reinstalled the updated version of the software
or might be the problem due to some virus transferring some data from PC to Mobile with USB data cable due to which the software or files may have got corrupted...also u can try deleting some files (images,music) for some free space

How do I reboot it? Compaq 5716 runs very slow Can't download anything paid for interent and the computer just freezes. I want to do a system restore where there is nothing on the computer like brand new.


There are different ways on how to reboot a computer. If your laptop is not operational like it's frozen or crashed with the mouse frozen, try the simple steps below:

1. The custom way to reboot your computer is to press and hold the power button until it shuts off. Then press the power again if you want to turn it back on.

2. If your computer is functional and you just want to reboot/restart it, click on Start then click on Turn Off and select Restart. It will restart your computer.

3. If you can't click on the Start button but your mouse is still functional, you can simply press the Ctrl + Alt + Del button on your keyboard to bring up the Task Manager. Then on the Task Manager window, click on Shutdown tab, then choose Restart.

4. If your computer wont turn off no matter what you do, like holding the power button and the steps above, try to unplug the power cable for few minutes then plug it back in. Try to turn on the computer again.

System Restore

Click on START > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

When you do System Restore, this feature will restore your computer's settings back to its normal or functional condition. You can just choose an earlier date where it was working fine. The good thing about system restore is it wont delete your recent saved files and data.

If you really want a clean hard drive/system like what you said (brand new), reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows Operating System is what you need. You need your Windows installation CD to do it. Click on the links below on how to reinstall your Windows Operating System.

Need help reboot my computer


Hi.. first of all when ur system gets attacked by virus or threats its difficult to perform delete operations. The only best way is to format ur system with the help of XP cd. This XP cd will reboot ur operating system so that all viruses and threats available in ur C drive will get deleted... So the only option is to re install ur OS with XP cd...

thank u
