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 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.

Scooter wont work. Charger shows "Green"......its been sitting for months. Just found the charger. When throttle is rolled on it makes a high pithched tone but crank wont turn the wheel...

Hi. I have had a few cases where the machine has been sitting in a damp room and the brake has rusted to the body and wont release. A few light taps with a small screw driver has usually fixed this. You will need to put the machine into free-wheel before doing this.
Could also be a faulty brake unit, that has seized up.
Try pushing the machine in free-wheel mode to see if the motor and drive wiil move.
Normally if there is an electrical fault with the brake assembly, then the machine will have a fault code on the display. good luck. Neil.
