Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

I have an emachine T5026. Emachine tech swears this machine only supports pc2700 ram but the stickers on the factory installed ram says pc3200 256mb x 2 so i bought 2 memory masters pc3200 1gb x 2 sticks. The bios recognizes the new and old memory 2560mb total but windows will not boot. The memory master package say the sticks will support pc2100, 2700, or 3200???? Why would they say i need 2700 if 3200 is already installed, why will bios read ok but no boot to windows 7????

PC3200 is backwards compatible with PC2700. Meaning you can install PC3200 into your motherboard but it won't run any faster than would PC2700, however it will not cause any harm and should work fine.

Emachine's would say you need PC2700 most likely because they're trying to sell you some.

One of your new memory modules or the memory slots on your computer may be defective. I recommend installing a single stick of memory and booting your system. If it is successful then shut it down, disconnect the power and install another stick. Boot again and keep doing so and by process of elimination identify the bad memory stick or the bad memory slot.

This is the "likely" cause and isn't too uncommon.

Good luck.

I have an emachine t5026 that won't turn on. It


There can be two problems with your PC. either the power supply is faulty which is highly probable, and the other is that your Motherboard maybe faulty or both things are faulty. Try replacing the Power supply first. It should solve your problem.

Have T5026 emachine with boot problem


Sounds to me that theres a good chance that the windows files are corrupted. It is possable that its could be hardware, but software is free so start there.

If youve got the recovery disks then put them in and restart. Just attemp a repair of your windows. its worth a shot. you may need to go into your boot setting to boot from disks.

if you havnt got them and you havnt got warrenty them youll have to format the drive and install a fresh copy of windows, and find all the drivers from the emachines after.

1st get all the stuff off the drive that you need/want, take the drive out and connect it to another pc or use some sort of external connection.

then find a copy of windows that matches the licence sticker on the case of your pc. throw the hdd back in and boot the disk, format the drive and install windows.

youll have to get the drivers from
