Thank you for your question.

In this instance I will hazard a guess that you are describing the RAM slots and the amount of RAM you have installed. If this is the case, then the "missing" RAM is most probably being utillised by the onboard graphics card. Search the BIOS, it will tell you how much RAM is reserved for graphics.

If this is not the case, then one or both of the RAM sticks could be faulty, which is not an uncommon problem. Further, if they are sticks of RAM from different manufacturers, sometimes they will not "work" together.

Only thing I can see that you could try is to, take out the RAM with the machine shutdown, check for dirt, dust, etc in the RAM slots and the sticks, reseat it and boot up again. If this doesn't give you the full half a gig of RAM then most probably it is the reserved portion for graphics.

Kind regards

I am going to assume that you are talking about RAM.

In which case you will never be shown the exact amount of RAM that you have installed. A certain amount of your RAM gets used as base memory, and therefore is not considered to be available ram.

In your BIOS there should be an option that says something like:

64mb memory OS2. You should enable this option if you are using a 2K operating system.

This option will most likely be under integrated peripherals.

Password bios emachin


That is going to depend on what it was set to. There is no factory password for the Bios on these computers. If you have forgotten the password you will need to reset the Bios using the jumper on the mother board. If you don't have your book on the motherboard you will need to go to the eMachine website and look up the down load of the book for your specific model.

Installing Graphics cd in AGP slot...


Usually you need to disable the on-board video/activate the AGP slot in the BIOS before adding the video card. (Check your manual for entering the BIOS - often hit F1 or F2 (or enter when prompted) as you start the computer before the OS starts loading.)

I have no idea how you see the BIOS information without a working video to start.

How do I tell me emachine T5212 to recognize newly installed ram?


The Ram specifications for your model are:
1024MB DDR2 (2 × 512MB), 533MHz (PC4200)
Expandable to 2GB

If you are using Microsoft Windows, the operating system will recognize the memory by itself, there is nothing you have to do. Go to your start menu, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". In the lower right corner of the "General" tab, you can read the amount of memory available to you.

If you want to know how to put RAM into your computer, have a look at this web page - it's a good video instruction. Make sure not to touch any of the electronic parts on the stick itself - try to hold it on the side.

If your computer does not recognize the newly installed RAM it can have different reasons:
  1. The RAM is bad. Nothing you can do but send it back and get it replaced.
  2. You got the wrong RAM. Look at Crucial's webpage (link) and compare the specs with what you've got. They are very reliable and the memory I bought from them always worked.
  3. It is possible that you have to install the RAM in pairs. (eMachine's web page (link) has no download for a manual and does not cover this topic.) It means, that either both memory slots have to be populated or even populated with the same kind of sticks (2 x 512MB, 2 x 1GB).
Solution: try to replace one of your old sticks with the new 1GB stick and see if that increases your memory. If that doesn't work, take both of the old sticks out and put the new 1GB stick in the slot closest to the CPU (look at the video: it's that unit with the fan on top). If that doesn't work either, try the other slot.
Last resort would be to contact eMachine. You can either use LiveChat or call them. The contact info is on their web page.

If all fails, come back here and leave a comment including what you did. I will check back and then we go from there.

Good luck!

Cant remember were the wires go to plug in the power button to mother board black/white green/white red/white on the Emachine Desktop PC


Hi

if you look closely to the board you will see white text that explains what two pins are for what, also if you can provide me with the model of the motherboard, the connections are documented in the user manual,

its a emachine.. what model? you can also look at the motherboard and find the white text that has the model details post everything you find if your not sure. (most likely between the processor and memory or within that area, and in most cases between the pci slots)
