Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Processor? I have a T2792 emachine. The machine will shut down right in the middle of doing something, but doesn't power all the way off. The green power button turns a solid yellow and stays on along with the hard drive light and disk drive light. All the fans stay running. It's like it goes into hybernation, but the only way to get it back on is to hold in the power button, turn it off, and power back up. I'm running 1.5G ram and a 500W power supply. Any Idea's? Michael

    E machine model W3506:
    I don't remember the exact symptoms the first time I started having problems because it was several months ago and I didn't have the money to replace the power supply at that time. At that time things started to go bad, like the disc would stop working then the monitor would go blank and finally it wouldn't boot at all.

    I replaced the power supply and cleaned the machine last week and things worked fine.

    Yesterday the machine shut itself down. I rebooted and it worked fine.

    Today it went down and I rebooted. It came up and ran about 15 minutes before it shut down. I rebooted and it worked about three minutes. I turned the power off for several hours and then turned it on and it came up for about three minutes before shutting itself down.

    To me its acting like an overheating problem.

    Is there a component or a virus that would cause this or do I have another bad power supply?

    It's possible to be a power supply problem. These are frequent. Restarts and shutdowns may be a sign of this. If you say your computer goes into "hibernate" mode instead, it may be software related. Do you have any virus protection on that computer?

I have an e-machine T2792. It boots up fine then runs for 10 to 20 min. then shuts down. Could this be my cpu going bad? Thank You Scott


CPU, the motherboard and the rest of the chips in it is subject to wear and tear. This is in addition to the high temperature it is operating with. The sudden shut down is cause by a failure of one component (usually the Processor) who's burned out.

I need help restoring my emachine t2792 to factore default settings


Go to start menu -> Click on all programs -> click on Emachine ->click on Emachine recovery management -> Click on restore on the bar across the top ->click on restore to system factory default. This will take some time and reset your Computer to factory default. Note:- This will erase all your data also so create backup if anything important is there before you reset to default. If this process doesn't work for you or you dont find the option then Use the disk bundled with PC to restore/reinstall Windows.

E-Machines T2792 (Windoes XP Home) Shuts down occasionally. I just want to reformat my hard drive and start fresh, but do not have the OS Reinstallation disks and e-Machines doesn't have them any more....


Check your program list and see if there is an emachines backup or restore CD creation application. Most recent computers did not come with disks. Instead, the user needs t create their own. If you've never created a set, you might be in luck. Directions should be on their website.

EMachines t3626 shuts down at random


You may be dealing with bad or overheating with your processor or memory. If possible, try swapping out your memory chips to see if that does the trick. If not, you will have to try swapping out the processor (much less likely you'll be able to swing that).

Getting power but wont boot up or anything


pull out everything in the computer except what's required to boot...so any pci cards or video cards (if you have onboard video). you can also try pulling out the ram (while unpowered AND unplugged) and then booting to hear beeps...if you pull the ram out and the computer doesnt make a sound, its probably a bad motherboard and needs to be replaced. if you hear beeps, try replacing the ram or disconnecting other parts...like harddrives, optical drives, modems and what not.

E-machine desktop powers up and shuts right down


Yes absolutely it is the power supply and EMachines have a reputation of using less than great power supplies. Do not turn it back on as it may cause damage to motherboard components. Now as for as getting a new one they are not expensive. FIrst you have to open the case and see what the wattage is on the current one..then go to a website like TigerDirect or NewEgg and order a new one. They are not hard to disassemble or assemble. Just a few screws and unplug some wires. So anyone comfortable with working with computers or electronics can do it....the only tricky part is remembering where to plug all the wires back into. So no big deal, order one with overnight shipping, an hour to install and she should be back up running by early next week. If you have any questions please let me know.

Hard drive light stays on and system freezes


You may have a hardware problem of some sort. The first place I'd start is to check the power supply voltages. If one or more voltages is off tolerance, this will cause all sorts of symptoms. if you have a voltmeter check especially the +5, +3.3, +12, & +5 standby voltages. Use this site as a reference http://pinouts.ru/Power/atx_v2_pinout.shtml If the supply checks out faulty, buy a replacement, or, if tech savvy, you might repair it-- probable component defects= one or more electrolytic capacitors. Other possible problems are Memory errors (try subbing a RAM stick), hard drive developing errors, or a bad chip on the motherboard. If you have some spare parts, RAM, hard disk, you can try subbing parts and narrow down the problem.
