Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
As soon as the power cord is plugged in the fan stats running. The green light in the front comes on. It doesn't boot up. The keyboard is not responding either. The mouse works. If I shut it down for awhile the fan doesn't start as soon as it gets pwer and the pc boots up normally and everything works fine, but only for about 20-30 minutes or so. The the same problem occurs. Any advice? Thanks!
This sounds like an overheating problem, that is why the fan comes on right away. When you let it rest, it cools off, and works normally for a while.
Most modern PC's are designed to slow down their operating
frequency when they over-heat, and if that is not enough they
will go into suspend, hibernation or (totally off) modes to protect themselves from permanent damage.
Bigger power supply, more and better cooling fans, improved space and airflow around the cabinet, cool the room with aircond.
also better heat-sinks on the CPU and/or the chip-sets.
all relatively inexpensive.
