Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an emachines model t3522 with a celeron D 352 processor. It doesn't want to boot up. At power up-- it tries and goes to the screen to allow you to boot in other modes-- Safe mode etc.- It will not boot in any mode. It seems like its in a loop. It tries to boot up and returns to the same screen. Will not recover with recovery disc either. Does any one have any ideas?

How do i fix Reboot and Select proper Boot device?


The system is trying to boot from a designated device (like a usb drive, an iso file or a mounted drive) that doesn't have a boot partition on it.

Go go into the boot select order and change the setting to a bootable drive

Powered but not booting. No visual. HDD light not doing anything.


Remove the RAM and start, see if it beeps and/or shows something on the screen. Try with the external screen too.
Let me know how it goes

EMACHINES T3522 Message "ENTER PASSWORD TO UNLOCK SYSTEM" ON STARTUP


http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T3522 Chat with a tech. I think a system password has been set by someone. Most probably a bios / HDD password. So you need to know that to boot. Bios reset may do the trick (by removing cmos battery). But you have to set the settings back to normal in BIOS. But if you have encrypted data you may harm them. (Rarely).

My computer wont boot up the power light comes on,the speakers come on but the keyboard doesnt come on and nothing to the monitor...oh by the way its an emachines w3506


If the keyboard doesn't briefly light up the Caps Lock, and Numlock keys, when first starting the computer, and there's no video signal to the monitor, (No Signal), the computer isn't working.

Suspect the Power Supply first.

Bad Power Supply, is one of the most leading causes of computer failure.

This is brought about usually by one of two things, or a combination of both.

1) eMachines are Budget line of computers. Cheap quality parts are used, to defray the cost of making the computer.
One of the cheap hardware components is the Power Supply.

2) Computer is dirty inside, as well as the Power Supply.
The hardware components inside a computer, as well as the Power Supply, are cooled by air from fans.

Dirt, dust, etc, cause the cooling capacity of the cooling system, to drop tremendously.
Heat = Wasted Energy.

The Power Supply tries to keep up with the call for power, cannot, and components inside the Power Supply fail.

The Power Supply has a weak voltage power rail.
It may seem that the computer is receiving power, but it isn't receiving enough.

A) ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power

C) A typical Processor uses anywhere from 51 watts to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

The W3506 comes with an Intel Celeron D 352
(Single core processor, that operates at a maximum frequency rate of 3.20GigaHertz. 3.2GHz)

eMachines Support>Specifications>W3506,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3506

Information on the Intel Celeron D 352 processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#.22Cedar_Mill-512.22_.2865_nm.29

The Intel Celeron D 352 can use up to 86 Watts, when operating at maximum capability.

This is why it may seem as though the computer is working, but in actuality it isn't.
The Processor isn't running.

No Processor operating, no computer.
No computer, No Signal to the monitor.
No Processor running, there is nothing to make the Operating System work. (Windows XP is one example of an O/S)

No Operating System working, the keyboard isn't going to 'light up'.

From here the diagnoses should be to test the Power Supply, or replace it with a KNOWN to be good, compatible power supply for a test.

[Compatible being the Power Supply has enough Wattage, the correct power cables, and enough of the correct power cables]

The Power Supply can be tested in the computer, with all the power cables disconnected.
Use a multimeter, or a power supply tester.

Example of an economical Power Supply Tester,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5250576&CatId=5471

This gives information on the various power cables used, in a personal computer,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html

Using the multimeter, the Positive (Red) probe is connected to the power wire to be tested, then the Negative (Black) probe is touched to a Ground wire.

There are three main voltages, given out by a personal computer power supply, (All are DC volts),

1) The 3.3 Volt power rail.
Wires that have Orange insulation are 3.3 Volt wires

2) 5 Volt power rail. Red insulated wires
3) 12 Volt power rail. Yellow insulated wires

For 12 Volt power, 11 to 13 Volts is okay. Below 11 Volts it's time for a new power supply.

4) ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.

I need emachine etower 600is intel processor


The eMachines eTower 600is uses an Intel Celeron III processor that operates at a maximum frequency rate of 600MegaHertz. (600MHz)

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=eTower%20Series&model=eTower_600is

The Intel Celeron 600 uses a Socket 370 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#.22Coppermine-128.22_.28180_nm.29

There is a locking arm on the side of the Socket 370 processor socket, that is unlocked by easing the arm over to one side to clear a lock tab, then the arm is lifted up to remove the processor.

Example of a Socket 370 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

The eMachines eTower 600is uses an Intel 810 chipset, for the motherboard chipset.
[Chip and Chipset are slang terms used for Integrated Circuit, or IC]

The Intel 810 chipset, supports processors with a 66MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (66MHz FSB), or 100MHz FSB.

In an additional link, I will give a recommendation of where to buy an Intel Celeron 600, that uses a 66MHz FSB.
I'm not advertising for this place, it's just a place I have used, and have had good results.

Also information on the Intel 810 chipset.

You could also use an Intel Celeron 700MHz processor, but better still you could use an Intel Pentium III 933MHz processor.

Pentium's typically have Two times, the L2 cache that a comparable Celeron has.The more L2 cache a processor has, the faster it's going to process information.

I also know it will work because out in my shop I have an eMachines T1090, that has an Intel 810 chipset, uses a Socket 370 processor socket, and has an Intel Pentium III 933MHz processor in it.
(Made in 2001, and still works good to this day)

The Intel Pentium III 933MHz processor uses a 100MHz FSB.
The Intel 810 chipset supports processors that have either a 66MHz FSB, or a 100MHz FSB.

If you are not familiar with computer hardware technology, then I have just thrown a whole lot of information at you that is unfamiliar.

Should you like me to break down the information, I would be glad to. Just state so in a Comment.

System passes the logon screen


Keep tapping the F8 key while you boot your machine, hopefully you will get a black screen with some white writting on it.
Using the up and down arrows select Boot Safe Mode without Networking.
Once you boot into safe mode go to programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and follow the wizard to restore your machine back to a time and date before you installed the modem software.

Booting Problem


Could be a power supply problem but suspect its a problem with the motherboard. Unless you have a spare power supply or testing equipment I would suggest you take this to the local repair shop. For $30 they should be able to give you a good idea if the power supply is shot (cheap fix) or the motherboard (more expensive). Be aware that I also found lots of cases where a bad Emachine power supply also damaged the motherboard as well.
