Question about E-Machines eMachines T3830 PC Desktop

Won't turn on.

Hello, I was working on my machine, when it just shut down, I could not move my mouse, and just a box was on my monitor saying something about power being shut down, so I turned it off, and now it will not turn back on. I took off the back and checked and cleaned it out, wow, what a mess, anyway, I hooked it all back and still nothing, I have been having trouble with the big fan coming on a lot before this happened, when I ran my card games, or whenever a program would start up. It had happened earlier in the day with my granddaughter, and I just shut it off and it came right back on, but that night, I was playing a mean game of pinucile when it was just gone. Can you tell me what happened? Please.

    I did all that and still nothing, I was on the computer when it shut down, however earlier that day it did the same thing so I shut it off and it came right back on, but the big fans were running all the time. Then I was playing a game and it shut down again, this time I can not get it to turn back on. I have cleaned it out, (boy was it a mess.) I checked all the fans and they are turning free, I pushed all the wires to make sure they were all connected. etc.. I am thinking it is a power supply problem, or could it be my Help

This sounds like the CPU is overheating. Have you opened up the box and cleaned it out with canned air (or a vacuum in reverse to blow air works as well)?

Monitor mouse and keyboard suddenly stopped working


Hi, Dixie, What have you tried to do so far?
IF you've move the machine to a different spot, and have disconnected the cables, maybe you have the cables in the wrong spot?
IF you have power to the computer, and the fans on the "box" works then try a different monitor, IF that part works then try a different keyboard and mouse.
Hope this helps.

How to change orientation of monitor


I'm a little unclear of what you are asking.

1) Screen has turned on monitor?

Press the CTRL key, and ALT key down at the same time.
Now tap on the Left Side Arrow key, until the screen is oriented correctly again.

2) Screen on monitor has shifted left, right, top, or bottom?
Use the controls on the monitor to set it correctly again.

3) Using dual monitors?
Right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on Settings.

The monitor 1 icon is supposed to be your Primary monitor.
The monitor 2 icon is the Secondary monitor.

Ordinarily the Primary monitor is on the LEFT side, and the Secondary monitor is on the RIGHT side.
Just as shown in the Settings window.

If you wish to move a monitor to the other side, go to the monitor icon you wish to move.

Put your mouse cursor on the monitor icon you wish to move.
Left-click, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now drag the monitor icon you wish to move, to the other side.

Not doing it for you?
Then post in a Comment with more exacting information, as what it is that you wish to do.

Regards,

Hello..just moved my desk top to new desk..everything is fine..but mouse won t work..while it was unplugged i cleaned keyboard..monitor with soft cloth..can u tell me why my mouse won t work


IF it's a serial mouse (meaning green round connector) it's probably not plugged in correctly. Now these are not plug and play so you need to reboot your system in order for it to work. Try that.

Monitor and mouse shut off.....


Call Dell for support. Looks like something in motherboard detects something (like temperature) then shut down your system.
Probably only need cleaning up inside.

You have to click the Start button and choose "Shut Down " and click the mouse on that. If that does not work, try pressing Ctrl + Alt+ delete simultaneously. What they call the task manager will come up. choose Shut down and click on it. It should shut down
