Question about E-Machines eMachines T3830 PC Desktop
HI SILLY GIRL,
YOUR NOT AS SILLY AS YOU ARE SMART.
I CAME ACROSS THE SAME SITUATION A WHILE BACK WITH MY
HOME MADE DESKTOP. IT WAS IN A STATE OF BEING SUSPENDED,
BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THAT WAS, WHICH MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO ME NOW. FOR AFTER I SEND MY GIGABYTE MOBO IN FOR REPAIR, TO WHICH THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG.
I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER, AND "WOW LA" I WAS BACK UP AND RUNNING.
I'D LIKE TO ASK YOUR OPINION, IF IT'S NOT TO PUSHY.
I'D APPRECIATE ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE TO TELL ME.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME IN READING THIS.
WELL NOW, I FOUND A VERY NEW GATEWAY GT 5228, THAT THIS GUY HAD THROWN AWAY, AND I UNPLUGGED EVERYTHING, AND A FEW HOURS WENT BY AS I WAS WORKING ON ANOTHER PC. SO I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER, AND IT BOOTED RIGHT UP.
I MADE MYSELF THE ADMINISTRATOR, AND THEN WENT INTO THE BIO'S AND LOOKED AROUND, AND IN THE BOOT ORDER, I MADE REMOVABLES 1st BOOT, FOLLOWED BY CD, THEN HDD, AND THEN DECIDED NOT TO MAKE THE CHANGES, BUT OUT OF HABIT, I HIT THE F10, WHICH KEPT THE CHANGES, AND IT GOT HUNG UP ON THE REBOOT. SO AFTER ABOUT 10 MIN'S I JUST SHUT IT OFF.
SO NOW I'M AT THE BEGINNING AGAIN. SO LAST NIGHT I DISCONNECTED EVERYTHING, AND REMOVED THE CMOS BATTERY, AND SHORTED IT OUT.
DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG IT TAKES THE MEMORY MODULES TO LOSE THEIR STORED MEMORY, AND IS THERE A FASTER WAY TO DISCHARGE THE MEMORY MODULES OF THEIR MEMORY, OR DOES IT CLEAR THE PC'S MEMORY, THE MINUTE YOU REMOVE THEM?
THANKS AGAIN, FOR ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE TO TELL ME.
Capacitors loose their power within 10 seconds so 20 seconds with the power turned off or completely disconnected and the c mos shorted will do the job in 20 seconds
