Question about E-Machines T5082 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Connecting to my E:\ drive

I have a T5082 emachine desktop PC and my e drive doesn't kick in and not even can I watch my DVD's or download pictures to my folders I just can't figure it out. Is there a site where one can access E drive connections.
When I go to my computer site on the board I see D, F, G, H, I, and C connections but no E???
Thank you.

Hi fantisy, It's not uncommon for your DVD player to not have the drive letter you were expecting it to have. Let me show you. Place a CD or DVD in to your cdrom drive, close the drawl. Close any windows that may open Ok here we go. Right click once on the Start button, than slide up to & left click on Explorer. Take a look at the icons. Left click once on the - sign to the left of C:
The icon you see to the left of C: is a hard drive. Look down to your DVD drive, see the differance in the icon, (a cd on top of a hard drive icon). Your E-Machine also has a SD card reader. Each card slot also shows a hard drive icon. So drive D: is your DVD player & F, G, H & I are SD card reader drives. Windows just skipped letter E.
You can re-assign your drive letters through windows Computer Management. Type Computer Management in your help window. Under Overviews, Articles and Tutorials, is Using Computer Management. Clcik on it.In the right half of help click,
Open Computer Management (Local).
Once opened click Disk Management. Here is where you can re-assign drive letters.

( DO NOT ) change C: drive letter assignment.

Enjoy!

Mike

I have an emachines t5082 and tried installing 2GB (2x1GB) they are a 2-pack, DDR2 6400's The board sees 1GB but when I put both in it won't even give me a boot screen or anything, just a black screen. Is...


eMachines recommends DDR2 at 533MHz.
(PC2-4200)

A lot of ram memory manufacturers, state you can use DDR2 at 667MHz. (PC2-5300)

This is a logical statement due to the fact that a lot of motherboard chipsets, (Northbridge chip specifically),
will allow ONE step up in ram memory frequency rate.

You are going Two steps up.
Who told you this would work?
This is erroneous.
(Mean that in a nice sort of way)

PC 6400 is DDR2 at 800MHz.

Your eMachines T5082 motherboard uses an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 motherboard chipset.

This chipset will only support DDR2 at 667MHz at best.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xpress_200

Suggest you send that ram back, and get PC2-5300.

T5082 CF reader problem


If your comfortable opening the case, I would try disconnecting the reader from the mother board, and then reconnecting it. Sometime reseating the connections will fix it. Usually however the hardware is bad. If this is the case, you can get a replacement here
http://www.skyline-eng.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=6082 IT's a little pricey though, may want to watch for the part number on Ebay.

Installation windows xp emachine t5082


You must find "eMachine" XP USB drivers for your computer.
If all USB support is "enabled" in BIOS, the conflict is with drivers.
XP is loaded with many generic drivers, however eMachines is proprietary and requires eMachine drivers for most on-board hardware.

Contact eMachines support to locate the drivers (if available).

Why won't drive d open?


This is a common problem with old or poor quality DVD/CD players. Try going to My Computer, right clicking on the drive and selecting 'eject'. I this doesn't work then just replace the drive and all will be well. If the drive is not shown in My Computer then you must assume it is dead.
