Need manual for Eone 433 desktop computer
I had the same problem recently with an emachines Eone 433 desktop. Taking it apart is certainly difficult. First of all, the metal compartment that holds the motherboard and drives is beneath the CRT monitor. In order to access and remove the compartment, the bottom blue plastic cover must be removed. To do this, unplug everything and flip the Eone upsidedown, there are four screws to remove, two at the back, two at the front. Then pull back the plastic rim prop to reveal two more screws, which will remove the plastic stand. This uncovers the last two screws you need to take out. Once that is done, you can begin to lift the bottom cover out, you will have to disconnect the RCA connectors to completely remove it. After this is done, you are now looking at the metal compartment, held in by a single screw at the edge closest to the rear of the Eone. Then you can disconnect the VGA, power, and various audio and controller wires to lift the compartment free of the Eone. Done, now you can replace or upgrade any failing drives, add in some PC100 SDRAM SODIMM (those half size laptop cards, cept this type is ancient, might find a 64MB or 128MB card in a junk heap or used PC store). That's about all you can do for upgrading this thing, my advice, maybe put ubuntu linux on it for the kids, a larger hard-drive if you have a spare one larger than 6GB lying around....good luck, if i wasn't clear enough, shout it out.
