My emachine won't boot without going to a black screen and no response


The owner is the administrator, unless someone else has set it to them.

Password is password, or administrator; if not set by anyone.

eMachines, huh?

I AM an eMachines fan. First decent desktop computer was an eMachines T1090. Yes. Still works. (OK. Maybe. Haven't fired it up in a few years, or loaned to anybody)

1) Do you know about Anti-Static Procedures?

If not please post back in a Comment, and DO NOT attempt working on your computer until you do.

2) Is the computer dirty inside?

3) eMachines are a decent computer, BUT they are a budget/starter computer.
As such some of the hardware parts are of low quality.

The Power Supply is one of them.

Some of the electronic components on the motherboard, are of low quality.
The Electrolytic Capacitors fit this issue.

Just seemingly go bad one day. POOF!

(They don't, but that is the way it seems)

Different motherboard, but showing for an example,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/EMACHINES-ET1331G-05W-MOTHERBOARD-MB-NB307-001-MBNB307001-/150885166351?pt=Motherboards&hash=item232174ed0f

Set your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This enables the Zoom In feature.
No move your mouse around.

The large white square object is the Processor socket.
Has a black odd-shaped ring around it. (Heatsink mounting bracket)

See those tall Black looking 'can's on the side? Side towards you?
Shiny top with a 'Y' etched in the middle?
Those are Electrolytic Capacitors.

Come closer to the bottom edge.
See the Brown 'cans'?
More Electrolytic Capacitors.

(They are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors)

Now look for visual signs of capacitor failure,

http://capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lut7MX5Dd_A

If I were a guessing man, I would guess the inside of the computer is dirty, and possible Power Supply failure.

Since this is THE leading cause of desktop computer failure, there's a good chance I am correct.

However once you post about knowing Anti-Static Procedures, I would like you to perform something simple;

Remove all Ram Memory modules ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser. Then use air to remove the eraser dust, and reinstall them/it.

There is a Proper procedure for this too.

Post back in a Comment.

Logging on


Hi there
sounds like a conflict with the mouse causing system crash, try another mouse, if you still get the same check that the system (CPU) fan is working and the machine is not overheating, to perform this you will have to remove the side panel from the desktop

Good luck and kind regards

Still having trouble with EMachines T3882


I feel your pain. I finally moved my pc to a room with no windows! But seriously, try a different monitor first. See if you can borrow someone's to just try it before you do anything else. If that borrowed monitor works fine, then you know what the problem is. (Which I believe is the problem.) By the way, what started all of your problems?
