I was given a computer with a homemade tower... I need to factory reset it but don't know how??


Basically you need the Windows installation CD plus the product installation code. Boot up with the Windows installation CD to install Windows on the hard disk, follow the on screen instructions - delete the existing Windows partition, create a new partition and format the new partition (full NTFS format - not a quick format) and continue with the installation.
Next you need to install the motherboard device drivers, you can download them from the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site from a computer with internet access. Copy these drivers onto an USB memory stick and insert this memory stick into you PC tower and install these drivers.
After installing these drivers you can now connect to the Internet to activate your Windows, You can activate Windows over the phone.

Only long beep tones with a few seconds pauses


depending on the beeps, you are looking at usually memory or video card error. first step is to remove the memory from the system and place only one stick in at a time. if the unit only has one stick then you need to get a known workign stick to test with. if the known working stick works or only one of the other sticks work then check each of the slots indvidually. if you find that the unit does not boot with the memory in a specific slot, then you have a bad motherboard. if the unit boots in every slot with the good memory, then you have a bad stick. If the pc boots after pulling and reseating the memory, you got one of the rare issues of a memory stick lossening up. If nothing boots it, then you need to move on to either the video card or motherboard.

Without the exact beeps and length of each beep i could not give you more than a generalized answer.

I had a failed hard drive replaced in my Dimension 5150. The system backup is on a memory stick. It starts to format the new drive, but then stops and gives no message. Any suggestions?


Hi,

Not sure exactly what you have on the back drive or its configuration and capability, but before you can use a new drive, it needs to be partitioned, then formatted probably with the NTFS system before you can copy any files to the drive.

Hopefully, you have the original system CDs or DVDs. You can change the boot sequence to boot from the CD/DVD and proceed from there. To do this, while the PC is early in the process of booting, press the F2 key to enter the setup program. Don't forget to change the boot sequence back when the overall process is complete.

How can format the intel dot station pc


You can boot from a USB memory stick and format.

The best tool for the job is freeware and can be found at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Simply download software - extract archive using winrar (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm) and open up the folder UBCD then open the folder TOOLS > WIN32 > UBCD2USB

Inside this folder is a command line script that guides you trough the process of creating a bootable USB memory stick.

Boot from this newly created memory stick to access tools to format the computer.

When its switched on it doesnt boot, just goes to the acer splash screen that says 'Del to enter setup" and "F12 for setup'. I think it was switched off with a usb memory stick 2.0 connected,...


Have you gone to 'setup' using F12?

If you can get into Setup you should be able to change boot options to boot from fixed (hard) disc. Unless the hard drive has been damaged or formatted this should work.

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

I have an emachine T5026. Emachine tech swears this machine only supports pc2700 ram but the stickers on the factory installed ram says pc3200 256mb x 2 so i bought 2 memory masters pc3200 1gb x 2 sticks....


PC3200 is backwards compatible with PC2700. Meaning you can install PC3200 into your motherboard but it won't run any faster than would PC2700, however it will not cause any harm and should work fine.

Emachine's would say you need PC2700 most likely because they're trying to sell you some.

One of your new memory modules or the memory slots on your computer may be defective. I recommend installing a single stick of memory and booting your system. If it is successful then shut it down, disconnect the power and install another stick. Boot again and keep doing so and by process of elimination identify the bad memory stick or the bad memory slot.

This is the "likely" cause and isn't too uncommon.

Good luck.

My hp 5750 beeps 4 times what seems to be the problem??? thank u


This means that your memory is bad or not installed correctly. Open your pc up and remove all memory from the mother board, then dust it, place the memory back in and it should work. If you still have this problem, leave only 1 memory stick in and try starting up your pc, if your pc starts up then the other memory stick is bad and you will need to replace it, if your pc still does not start, remove the 1st memory stick and put the 2nd memory stick in its place and try booting once again. If this still does not fix it, then the memory slots might be bad, try putting the memory sticks in different memory slots and each time try booting your pc. If this does not work, try buying new ram, worst case scenario you will have to replace the motherboard. Or just replace the computer if both memory slots are bad on the motherboard, and i mean IF. Good luck!

MY 1g memory stick only has 438mb of space and yet there is nothing on it. How can I format it?


If your memory stick is formatted into a specific (I think fat32 but don't quote me on that) format, usually it will reserve half as a mirror copy in case of failure you can retrieve your data. To format it, go into my computer, right click on your memory card and hit format, uncheck Quick format and select the file format of your choice.
