Question about eMachines W3619 PC Desktop

Open Question

About 2 1/2 years ago, I attempted to install a 500gb hard drive on my eMachines. It didn't work. Although, I can virtually swear I had the pins in the right place for a slave drive, the result is "No Work-ee". When I try to turn on the machine, the fans engage and I ge 1 short beep. The fans continue to run, but nothing else happens. This machine was 3 months old when this happened...I know,I know why didn't I return it for an exchange? At the time I was vigorously trying a new home business when this happened and I bought another computer to pacify until later. Well, you guessed it...later never came. Please help.

SOURCE: EMACHINE T6534 COMP. WANT BOOT . TRYING TO CHANGE V-CARDS

This could be a few things though if you have already checked the memory and HD. The next thing I would tell you is that you should check the cpu. Also make sure that everything in the BIOS is set to the default settings when you start it.

SOURCE: emachines pc keeps saying hard drive is failing

What kind of resources are you pulling on the pc everyday? For example are you doing heavy writing to the drive everyday such as video editing, ripping etc and how much air flow is your pc getting. If the case gets too hot or warm for long periods of time it can cause the hard drive to fail quickly. Lastly check your power supply male sure its pputting out the proper voltage to the computer specifially the connection to the hard drive. If its not stable the nit will cause your hard drive to fail.

SOURCE: e Machine T6534 fails every 6 to 9 months

This could be caused by the processor or fan,But very unlikely to be the mother board.

Either of the two yellow USB connectors labeled R in the picture should work.

Hi , i have a 500gb hardrive i bought a few months ago, full of family memorys and although it powers up the computer has stopped or failed to regonise the hard drive , pleaser can you help .im desperate


Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.

Emachines e4026 non-responsive


I don't think it's an overheating CPU. It would stay on for a bit longer if it was that. My best guess is a power supply issue. Either your power supply is bad, or more likely something is pulling too much power from it. Emachines are notorious for using the bare minimum hardware... possibly the extra hard drive is pulling more juice than the power supply can handle, so it shuts down. Try disconnecting power to the new hard drive and see if the machine comes up. If it does, you need a new, higher wattage power supply.

How do I get a Win 98 SE computer to talk to a USB II external disc running from a Thermaltake deck dock with a SATA disc in the dock?


to be honest you have more of a chance of hell freezing over, win 98 se although being the better out of the lot, you will never get the drivers for it, usb2 will never work with that os and it will never recognise the sata disk, you could try using win xp drivers for it, but i very much doubt you will get any response, your best bet would be to upgrade to xp...sorry its negative, but Microsoft stopped updates for 98 years ago...

Sometimes the drives pull too much current to start. I understand that it worked in the other caes, but the electronics in this case may be pulling more.

Usually they come with a two-headed USB connector. Try putting the single end in the drive and use two USB ports on the other end. This doubles the current available to the drive.

I bought an emachines computer about a year ago with vista home. My hard drive died, how do I install vista on a new drive, I have no install disk for vista.


You'll need to contact the manufacturer.  After they confirm the product serial # (you should write down both the product number and Microsoft license # before you call) they will send out a recovery disk (they will probably charge you for them).  If the old hard drive is still installed, you can attempt a recovery by booting and hitting the ALT key while tapping the F10 key repeatedly to initiate the recovery mode which is stored in a partition on the hard drive.  The partition is probably still good although the "C" drive is no good.

You need to get a Seagate Harddisk Utility software to check the disk intergrity.

Although hardware issues like can sometimes be very difficult to fix due to the impact on a volatile component on the harddisk which are most times not replaceable

Dell Vostro 200 desktop with Windows XP is not able to handle two


Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.
