The cost is more that the entire set, so I suggest you go to Tiger Direct on the internet, look at Refurbished speaker systems and get a good deal that way. Refurbished goods are the way to go and 99 percent are factory new anyhow.

The cost to replace is less than the cost to fix the problem. Go to Tiger Direct on the internet and get a replacement set from the Refurbished section CHEAP.

At power up no screen and no beep and no power on led. CD works(door opens) Came up once stayed on all day but when I shut down wont come back up. This is refurbished unit bought from Tiger Direct. Has not...

I would say no, the recovery disk won't help.
You may need the help of a computer savvy friend for what follows.
I would test the computer with a spare power block.
No good?
Power off the computer and unplugit, then
I would remove the processor, put it back and lock it down (Carefull! Reseat the heat sink and chip correctly!). I would remove each memory and put it back and lock it down.
I would go over the motherboard and press down on ANY circuit in a socket (Don't break the board!), reseat all the cards and then test it again.

After all this, if you have problems, it will be the motherboard. It will need to be replaced.

Emcahine Monitor sound is low

check the speak rail, the emachine speakers need a amplifier, there should have a power supply plug, that you need to plug it in.
if not, call up the place you brought the machine and ask them, where is the amplifier plug.

I just got a refurbished laptop from tigerdirect and i cant start up the computer. I can get to the log in screen but it seems there a preset password and log in info. Is there anyway to by pass so I can...

There is but your best bet is to contact tiger direct or the manufacturer of the machine. there might be a simply restore utility. It sounds like you have an open box computer. This is where someone opened the box tried it out and returned it. Refurbished is there was an issue and it was repaired. In bothe cases all major manufactures add software to reset the computer just like it came from the factroy. This is what you should do.

Thanks PJ Please rate my servcies and anything then completely staisifed is not good enough for me. tell me how  Ican fully help you.

eMachines are pretty standard hardware so look at Tiger Direct or Newegg for your needs; this is a service site and doesn't sell anything directly from here.

Problem power chord

The problem that you Actually Have, Is that the Mains In DC Jack on the Motherboard. Has worked Loose.
You need this replacing A.S.A.P as it,s burning your power packs out, it,s also possibly arcing across the motherboard.
If you look on the internets largest Auction Site :) services are offered to repair these. Usually varying From £40-$80. Plus, Dependant on sending the complete laptop, or just Motherboard.
Alternatively A Computer repair centre. I,d estimated £100-$200 Maximum. But worth Doing to save your Motherboard And future power pack purchases.
