EMachine T3025/Best Buy

Hello, I have a Emachine t3025 that had a HDD die on it. I am looking for a quicker source for the recovery disks then Emachines as they are projecting 2 weeks +. I was wondering if I could bring the machine into Bestbuy for a Ghost image of the recovery disks or some other quicker solution. Thanks!

    Hi - Is the HDD dead or did it crash? If it crashed could you please explain what happened. Thanks.

    Best Buy would charge you an arm and a leg to reinstall the OS. If the machine is under warranty (and you bought it from them), then maybe they'll do it for you, but you'd probably have a fight on your hands either way. I'd just wait for the discs in the mail, but that's me.

How do I create a factory default recovery disc where do I find the area at


Hello,

Not knowing the age and model of your emachine I will give you a few choices.

If it's an older series like the picture above you should be able to go into the start menu, all programs and then either PC Help and Tools or Emachine-Recovery manager. Then select Recovery Disk Creator.

If it's a newer model, Emachines and Gateway were bought out by Acer over a year ago and now use the Acer style recovery. Select Star, All Programs, then Emachine Recovery Manager. Load the Disk Creator selecting Factory Default disks first then selecting Application and Driver Disk.

One note, if it's an older model you will only be able to create the application and driver disk. It would have came factory with a base windows install disk. If you have lost this disk, you can reinstall using any standard OEM disk for the correct version of windows and using the windows license attached to the computer, but you will need the application and drivers disk to install your devices and programs.

If it's and older model and you can't find the disk, you can order a replacement set by contacting Emachines support, but there will be a cost invloved.

Emachine T3025. Just clean up a bunch of malware. Computer is naturally slow due to only 512mb RAM but runs (ran) good. Today would not power up at all. When power cord unplugged the NIC led would light up...


A Lock Up and No Power Up like that is common... Unplugging and dicharging the PC will normally correct that... which it did.
The Beeping is cause by a bad connection in the Memory Modules or a Video Card in a PCI or AGP Slot. Moving it around may have caused dust or dirt to wedge in there and cause a bad connection. Remove side case and blow out and reseat those items.
The two conditions are unrelated... moving the case around again can cause that.

Utilities I would recommend:
1. SUPERAnti Spyware

2. Glary Utilities - Run until thewre are no errors...2-4 times

T3025 won't load os


Hi,

It Could be faulty memory. Find out what kind of memory you have and see if manufacturer has recommended memory settings for that board.

It could also be a faulty video card.. just replace it. or if u dont have one yet, the integrated graphics chip cud help for now.

Please let us know if that was helpful enough.

Good Luck & Thanks,
Shiv.

No monitor signal and hard drive not spinning? (eMachines T3025)


wiring diagram? Usually you just plug in the 4 pin molex connector. If its not spinning the HDD is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Also I can tell you the Wires are Yellow=12v Black=ground RED=5v and orange=3.3v
