If the screen comes up and goes blank again,

1.Remove and replace your RAM with a known good RAM to test with, if it persist or continue, then

2.repair your operating system by re-updating it,this will help it to recover from the missing files

Emachine T 5212, when i turn it on,, a siren sounds,,then computer shuts off


In your computer (as well as other gadgets), the battery powers a chip called the Real Time Clock (RTC)chip. The RTC is essentially a quartz watch that runs all the time, whether or not the computer has power. The battery powers this clock. When the computer boots up, part of the process is to query the RTC to get the correct time and date. A little quartz clock like this might run for five to seven years off of a small battery. Then it is time to replace the battery.

This does not explain why your computer would not boot, however. You would expect the computer to boot fine but have an incorrect time and date. The reason your computer would not boot is because the RTC chip also contains 64 (or more) bytes of random access memory (RAM). The clock uses 10 bytes of this space, leaving 54 bytes for other purposes. The BIOS stores all sorts of information in the CMOS RAM area, like the number of floppy and hard disk drives, the hard disk drive type, etc. If the CMOS RAM loses power, the computer may not know anything about the hard disk configuration of your machine, and therefore it cannot boot.

Many more modern computers are not quite so dependent on the CMOS RAM. They store the settings innon-volatile RAM that works without any power at all. If the battery goes dead, the clock fails but the computer can still boot using the information in the non-volatile RAM area. I would change the battery and make sure unit is unplugged and my other hand is touching the metal frame on the computer to stop static discharge. Blow out the inside of the computer completely.Start computer with case off and make sure all the fans run and don't sound like a siren.Replace anything not running.It may not boot if the BIOS can't see the hard drives. You might have to start computer and watch the screen and when it asks you to hit a key to get into like the bios do it and see if you can reset it. If nothing seems be running right maybe the power supply went out they are real cheep at Tiger Direct.

Theyare telling you that your computer takes PC-100 memory at a clock speed of 222Hz. This is memory for older, slower, Pentium III computers. It wiil run Windows Xp Pro on a pentium III at a fairly good speed if you install at least 512MB and have a hard drive with 30GB of disk space. This memory shipped with the pentium III that usually had a HD of 10GB or less in computers made around 2001-2002.

Only displays bars when you power up`


No surge protector is going to stop a lightning strike. It's just way too powerful.
1. Make sure you've unplugged, waited 10 seconds, plugged it back in. That's more than the on/off button does.
2. If your PC will communicate with the printer at all, Lexmark has a program that will reset it. It's located here: http://support.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/knowledgebase.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:520:0:0&docid=ENUS25837

Good luck!

Power light flashes


I have an older 20" display. I have had this same problem on occasion, and coincidentally, just experienced it again this morning. It seems to occur after I do an OS update. I powered down the computer, disconnected the display, reconnected by pushing firmly into place, then powered up. The flashing stopped and the display works fine. You might have a different problem, but that simple solution worked for me.

Different color test patterns keep cycling .


This could be a computer or monitor problem. The reason that display shows up is because the monitor is not getting a power good signal from the computer. If a monitor doesn't get a power good signal it goes into test mode. It could be the monitor has a fault that is not allowing it to detect the computer, or the video card or computer itself isn't functioning properly. If you can, hook the monitor to a computer that you know is working properly. This will tell for sure if it is the monitor or not, and eliminate that possiblity. Then you will know if it is the monitor or computer. If the computer is the problem you'll need more help troubleshooting it.
