It all depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a Gaming desktop then I'd recommend Alienware If your looking for producing and editing videos I'd recommend an HP or Sony possibly Mac. For an all around PC go for a Gateway, Acer, eMachine or any other lower branded computer.

T2042 emachines audio problems


It's easy to fix this problem.

Stop using the audio chipset on the motherboard, and install a Sound Card.

They are economical, and will surpass the audio quality of that eMachines motherboard, by a mile.

The eMachines T2042 Desktop PC, uses one of these TriGem Imperial motherboards,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket478/imperial.shtml

Scrolling down you can see the audio is AC'97.
Not worth writing home to Mom about.

The Sound Card you obtain will go into one of those long white PCI slots.
(There are 3)

Any available PCI slot that is open, with no adapter card in it.

Here is but one example of a sound card that will work,

Is there a windows 7 driver for an e machine t2042? where can I find it if there is one?


Windows 7 always find the best drivers better than the other versions of windows. Make sure you have windows updates enabled and it will find all your drivers. This is an older machine originally designed for XP but Windows 7 will work make sure you have at least 1 gig of ram(memory). It has very common components like Intel Vga(video) and Realtek audio and Lan(network) and Windows update will find or already have the drivers. I have attached the link for you unit but emachines(gateway) does not even have Vista Drivers for it.

Emachines T2042 does not power up. what could be the reason? a faulty switch or a faulty power supply? The power cord is fine. There is also some spark when I plug the power cord into the cpu whiles its...


Not usually, what you need to do is see if the fan in the back of the PSU, runs at switch on... If it does NOT, there is a good chance your PSU has "Blown" this is a simple replacement, and quite cheap. You need to troubleshoot the PC, you need to also see if the fan on CPU goes at all, even a "Flick" at turn on? To see whats what, remove all Drives DVD and cards, then power on, if No GO then probably PSU.. IF OK replace things until, it stops, that is your problem.. Also remove a stick of RAM, and swap about if two to test them... A machine will boot with just RAM, but will complain..remove and introduce things one by one until you find problem, if you do all that and it is NOT, the, PSU, RAM, CARDS, HARD DRIVE, DVD, then it is your Motherboard. Try that see how you go.

*.GHO files are Norton Ghost images that are used by some OEM's to create a factory defuault image. When you restore this it should set the pc back to the same condition it was in when u purchased it however this will erase all your personal data on the drive.

If you are getting this error it means that the ghost image you are using to restore the PC is corrupted and cannot be used. eaither the CD is trying to read this data from a corrupted restore partition or the restore disk you have is bad (sometimes the disk may look fine- no scratches or anything and still be bad)

Try checking the disk for scratches or smudges but if you dont find any you can clean off the disk you will have to contact e-machines for a replacement disk.

Remove the cover to look at the power supply fan while it is powered on ( if needed). The fan should be spinning at a steady rate. If you observe fluctuations in the rotation, these are early indications of a malfunctioning power supply unit. As for the knocking sound, can you hear it better or determine its source if the cover is removed? It could be the fan hitting the side of the power supply or wiring. The good news is that if it IS the power supply, they are relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. Your sister may not be out of luck!
But if the light is blinking- and orange - this is definite indicator that the power supply is going. Still a good idea to replace the p/s unit and let her use it. With RAM being as cheap as it is, I'd also recommend bumping it up to 512 minimum if not a 1 GB.

Factory setting restore


If you have a Cd Rom called a Recovery Disk that usually comes with the computer. You can reformat the computer to it's original configurations. You will lose all data. It will be as if you took it right out of the box. Or on some computers you can do a Recovery only withour reformatting the PC. you will have to reinstall all updates , programs, etc. you turn off the computer and install the disc then you restart the computer. The disk will give you the option to Recover Only or Recover and Format.

Power button on front bezel broke and 2 of the little spider legs broke off. cannot turn computer. need oem button or replacement button. wires are fine. emachines T2042


dude it's probably simpler to get a new case (with a working power botton) that you can use with the internal components than to get a replacement for your power bottom (for which the only feasible option would be emachines and chances are the product could discontinued)
you have a midtower (more than likely is an ATX Case) and you may be able to get one for less than 40 bucks at tiger direct.
putting everything onto the new case may take some time and may cost you extra (get a friend to do it for ya for a few bucks, it's not hard at all but it takes care and patience plus above average knowledge on computers)

This has nothing to do with the power supply, its just a coincedence!

If you have the system disc that came with the computer, use them to reinstall the drivers and mixer software for the audio.

if you dont have the disc then regester for free at http://members.driverguide.com/

The driver is available from them.
